Pet Trust is Canada’s first charitable fund entirely dedicated to enhancing the health and well-being of companion animals, like dogs and cats. Knowing that cancer currently takes the lives of 1 in 4 dogs and 1 in 8 cats, Pet Trust created the Keep Cancer on a Leash campaign to not only raise awareness of animal cancer, but to raise money for the treatment of dogs and cats with cancer at the Ontario Veterinary College Mona Campbell Animal Cancer Centre at the University of Guelph.
The Animal Cancer Centre is one of the leading animal care centres in North America, providing outstanding cancer care and treatment for dogs and cats from all over the world.

The Maryland Animal Sanctuary & Rescue Organization (MAS Rescue, Inc.) was founded in 2005 by Mary Snyder to fulfill her dream and passion to save animals.
MAS Rescue is a small not-for-profit group that is dedicated to help unwanted shelter animals whose time has run out and whose destiny is deemed perilous. The group is supported by a select few of volunteers who have the same passionate desire to save as many shelter animals as possible. Since 2005, MAS Rescue has rescued and placed over 1,800 dogs and cats in loving forever homes.
Animals come to MAS from local shelters, some from distant shelters, while still others are displaced homeless animals found wandering the streets. MAS rescues, treats and rehabilitates animals through placement in volunteer foster homes for the purpose of eventual adoption into permanent homes that are loving and responsible. They are socialized with children, other animals, and are exposed to everyday family life.
MAS requires an adoption application, a signed contract and a fee. They will complete regular follow-ups, including veterinarian follow-up on your new companion.

Labrador Retriever Rescue, Inc. is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to placing purebred Labrador Retrievers in suitable loving homes.
LRR has been placing Labs in suitable, loving homes for more than 25 years. LRR is overseen by a volunteer Board of Directors and staffed largely by volunteer workers made up of LRR adopters, Labrador breeders, and dog trainers. We stand behind each adoption with support from experienced, knowledgeable volunteers who love the Labrador Retriever breed.
We foster each Lab in a loving foster home, not a large, institutional kennel. We screen adopters by visiting their homes, with our own Labs, and writing a detailed home study report. People who adopt a new “best friend” from LRR find that the time, effort, and loving care we take in matching adopter and Lab—along with our lifetime take-back guarantee on any Lab we place—is a successful formula few rescues can match.

The mission of the Georgia English Bulldog Rescue (Winder, Georgia 30680) is to first ensure the safety and well-being of all English Bulldogs that we take in and second to educate the public in the care of English Bulldogs. We rehabilitate and re-home English Bulldogs that are sick, neglected, abused, or injured. Moreover, we provide a safe alternative to shelters for owners that are faced with the already difficult decision of finding a new home for their English bulldog.
We have rescued over 150 bulldogs since forming in 2009. We have approximately 20-25 ENGLISH BULLDOGS in foster care at any given time. At this time, we are unable to offer owners financial help when faced with a medical or surgical emergency. We hope to be able to offer some assistance in the future.

Kilo Company of 42 Commando Royal Marines arrived in the war torn town of Now Zad in Helmand Province of Afghanistan in November 2006. Their mission; provide stability for the local people during a period of ever decreasing security.
The Royal Marines soon realised that it wasn’t only the local people that needed their help. Many of the stray dogs that roamed the town of Now Zad now had a guardian for the first time in their lives; in the form of Royal Marine Sergeant ‘Pen’ Farthing.
Breaking up an organised dog fight that was taking place right outside their remote compound, Pen never realised that one of those fighting dogs would then befriend him. The Royal Marine couldn’t say no to those big sad eyes and the now very former fighting dog became the Royal Marines four-legged buddy and got a name – “Nowzad”.
The ‘tail’ of the rescue of Nowzad and his other canine buddies from the remote desert outpost of Now Zad, was published as a best-selling book ‘One Dog at a Time’, which helped to promote and fund the running of the Nowzad Dogs charity which was formed in May 2007.
Nowzad Dogs operates the only official animal shelter in Afghanistan located just outside of Kabul and supported by a small animal clinic headed up by ex-pat Louise and her team of Afghan nationals.
