Branford Compassion Club (Branford, Connecticut 064-5) is a non-profit feline rescue organization that serves not only Branford, CT, but surrounding shoreline towns. The mission of the club is to provide for the feeding, shelter and care of homeless, abandoned and feral cats; to educate the public about the importance of spay/neuter population control, responsible pet ownership and kindness to animals; and to establish an ongoing community network to achieve these goals.


Branford Compassion Club was founded in November 1997, by a handful of compassionate Branford residents concerned with the growing population of feral cats. The residents united to form BCC to alleviate the hunger and suffering of feral cats in this community.

Atlanta Doberman Pinscher Rescue was officially licensed on February 7, 2006 under the articles of incorporation of the Atlanta Doberman Pinscher Club. Our purpose is to rescue abandoned and unwanted dogs and place them in safe, loving homes.



Our adoptable dogs are housed in foster homes in different areas of metro Atlanta. Our available dogs are listed on the Our Available Dogs page. Other dogs available for adoption in the Atlanta area are listed under Other Available Dogs.

If you are interested in meeting one of our adoptable dogs, first read our adoption policies. If you feel you are eligible to adopt one of our rescues, please click the email link associated with that dog and send us an email. We will ask you a few questions up front, then email you an adoption application.

Fresno Bully Rescue

The mission of Fresno Bully Rescue (Fresno, California 93723) is to provide a healthy and loving temporary home while we look for forever homes for our bullies.


Dakota (Animal ID 19126523)

In addition, FBR is committed to promoting responsible ownership of bully breeds, fighting against breed discrimination, spaying and neutering pets, reporting dog fighting, and demonstrating to the community that bully breeds are loyal, loving, and wonderful forever companions.

Equine Rescue League

The Equine Rescue League (Leesburg, Virginia 20177) is a non-profit organization that was established in 1990 that supports the responsible use of working, sport and pleasure horses, ponies, donkeys and mules. Our goals are to prevent the neglect or abuse of any equine, to offer educational programs to the community and to provide rehabilitation and adoption for those animals in need of our services.


Located at Promise Kept Farm on 20 acres in Lovettsville, Virginia, the ERL has a full time farm manager along with several part time employees and dozens of volunteers providing around-the-clock care to all residents, including those with special needs. 

We work to provide a safe haven to equines in need, to care for them as they embark on the challenging road to recovery and to place them into loving forever homes. 

Almost Home Humane Society of North Central Iowa (Fort Dodge, Iowa 50501) is a non-profit organization funded solely by donations. We are a limited intake (“no-kill”) facility that provides transitional care for abandoned companion animals until forever homes can be found for them.  


We primarily serve North Central Iowa, and promote humane education and spaying and neutering your pets. We receive no money from the state or city…we rely on your generous donations so we can help the animals in need in our community and surrounding areas.

North Bay Canine Rescue and Placement (Petaluma, CA 94955) focuses on rescuing purebred and mixed breed:

  • Australian Cattle Dogs (aka Queensland, Red, or Blue Heelers)
  • Australian Shepherds
  • Border Collies
  • Australian Kelpies
  • McNab Shepherds


Our rescued animals are immediately placed in foster homes, not kennels. Foster homes are the most crucial yet challenging aspect of our rescue operation. Foster homes are what enable us to rescue. This means we are always in need of caring foster homes to provide the safe, stable and nurturing environment for a dog whose life has been turned upside down, until we can find that FOREVER home for them through our carefully screened adoption process.

What is unique about NBCRP, and why one would choose to adopt, volunteer or contribute to us, is that we choose to rescue without discrimination as to age or health. More important is that we stand behind every dog that comes to us–in quality of care, ensuring a compatible adoption match by meeting all members of a new adoptive family, along with a personal home visit, and offering ongoing support to them during and after the adoption and transition period. More important and crucial to each of our adopted dogs, is that NBCRP always assures being here for any NBCRP dog, which may need to be rehomed. We are here to help the adoptive family who has a life changing event where they cannot continue to provide the love and care each of our animals deserves. We do not want to expose any animal to another traumatic or perhaps life ending experience with an unknown animal shelter, humane society or other rescue or a well-intentioned ad in a public venue. When we cannot help a family who needs to rehome one of our dogs, as a last resort NBCRP will take any steps necessary to assure their well-being and the opportunity of another home fitting their current physical, emotional and more age specific needs to help reduce the stress during another time of transition.


Altered Tails

The mission of Altered Tails (Phoenix, Arizona 85021; Mesa, Arizona 85207; Tucson, Arizona 85706) is to provide accessible and affordable spay/neuter solutions for companion animals and free-roaming cats.


Our vision is to eliminate euthanasia as a means of population control for companion animals and free-roaming cats. We are a not-for-profit organization dedicated to providing high quality professional veterinary services and are committed to:

  • Provide affordable spay/neuter service to owners who could not afford to do so otherwise.
  • Offer affordable vaccines and other vital services to owners of companion pets and rescue organizations.
  • Reduce the number of feral cats living in our communities through our Trap, Neuter, Return (TNR) program.
  • Help eliminate euthanasia as a form of population control.

The Center for Animal Health & Welfare (Easton, Pennsylvania 18042) is a private organization. We are not affiliated with any other SPCA or ASPCA. We are not a government agency, but are a non-profit organization with a 501(c)(3) status. In 2003, we committed ourselves to saving lives and became a no-kill shelter. We are dedicated to providing a safe and healthy environment for animals. We have improved our foster program, increased adoptions and offer a low-cost spay/neuter program.


We make every effort to find loving homes for these scared and lonely pets. We do not set a fixed time limit on animals, but keep them for as long as they remain adoptable.

The Humane Society of the Black Hills (Rapid City, South Dakota 57703) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that has worked with the community to provide shelter and care for lost and abused animals for nearly 50 years. The HSBH currently operates the only major animal shelter west of the Missouri River in South Dakota.


Each year, we rescue over 4,800 animals. Because of the shortage of shelters, animals are picked up and brought to our shelter from as many as 20 different counties. We are also an open admissions shelter. We will not turn away any animal, and we do not put a time limit on an animal’s stay at our facility.

Hudson County Animal League (Bayonne, New Jersey 07002), incorporated in 1994, is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization and all donations are tax-deductible. We are approved by the State of New Jersey Department of Health as an adoption agency. As the League continues to establish its reputation locally, it has gained the recognition of state and national peers in the animal rescue/humane community.


HCAL is working with the City of Bayonne to establish a humane, compassionate animal haven in that municipality. The City will be leasing HCAL a piece of property on East 5th Street, and once the environmental/legal issues have been resolved, HCAL will construct a pre-fabricated facility on the site. While we have been fundraising for this project for the past several years, when the lease agreement is signed with the City, the League will begin a major shelter capital campaign.

Our longer-term goal is for a community-friendly shelter which would provide a number of programs, such as obedience training, educational outreach, school trips to visit our puppy and kitten rooms, encouraging seniors to walk a dog or rock a kitty, and a boarding kennel.
