Contented Critters is a no-kill animal sanctuary located in Makinen, Minnesota.

contentedcritters-mn

We are a volunteer-run organization dedicated to the rescue, care, and relocation of animals in need.  The majority of the animals coming through our doors are dogs and cats. However, no injured creature that is not in another shelter’s contract area is ever turned away. Many of these animals are found abandoned. Some have been rescued from bad situations and some were simply dropped off by owners who can no longer care for them.
Regardless of breed, age or situation, we provide these animals with appropriate veterinary care and keep them happy and healthy until suitable loving homes can be found for them.

A.R.T N Paws Animal Rescue (Murrieta, California 92563) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) no-kill dog rescue organization.

We rescue stray dogs from the streets, and from situations of abuse and neglect. Additionally, we rescue many of our dogs from “death row” at kill shelters in CA. 

All rescued animals are examined by a veterinarian and given vaccinations.

The dogs are then spayed or neutered, treated for any health problems, and rehabilitated as necessary. Our main goal is to find permanent, loving homes for all the dogs that we rescue.

Since our founding in 2010, we’ve saved over 350 lives, placing them in loving, permanent homes. We work tirelessly with shelters to rescue animals at risk of euthanasia.

We take a multifaceted approach to finding permanent, stable and loving homes for our rescued friends; they are fostered in a home environment, evaluated for temperament, and many receive basic training to make them better companions for the people who will ultimately take them home.

All animals are fostered in our homes until a suitable permanent home is found. They receive veterinary care with the necessary age appropriate vaccinations and are spayed/neutered when approximately 6 months of age. We generate revenue by the means of fundraisers, donations, grants, endowments, memorials, bequests and adoption donations.

Camden County Animal Shelter (Blackwood, New Jersey 08012) fights to reduce the overwhelming stray/unwanted animal population in its county. CCAS is an open admissions shelter and takes in over 6,000 companion animals from 17 municipalities in Camden County every year. In 2004, the Animal Welfare Society of Camden County, which currently runs the Camden County Animal Shelter, took over the shelter’s activities. CCAS now does three major things: provide shelter for stray/unwanted animals, find those animals loving homes, and provide low-cost spay/neuter services.

Ruckus (Animal ID #33788693)

CCAS is an open admissions shelter. Its 40+ full and part-time staff work hard to find loving homes for each and every animal that enters the shelter’s doors. The 2011 Animal Intake and Disposition Survey shows that Camden County performs much better than its surrounding counties.

In addition to taking in animals, CCAS holds a multitude of events every year in order to help those looking to adopt to find the animal of their dreams, be it an adoption event or a full-blown gala. Lastly, CCAS provides Camden County with low-cost spay and neutering options. By providing the service at such a low cost, CCAS hopes to reduce the number of stray/unwanted animals in the county.

Brookings Regional Humane Society (Brookings, South Dakota) formed in 1998 to help the Brookings Animal Control Department find homes for stray animals. Prior to BRHS forming, there was no humane society/adoption group; the majority of the animals at Animal Control had to be euthanized. The unclaimed, homeless cats and dogs from Animal Control are BRHS’ priority. Those unclaimed within a five-day holding period are surrendered to BRHS where they get the necessary wellness care and are spayed/neutered. Animal Control brings any sick or injured animals to BRHS for immediate care.  It is rare now for an animal to be euthanized, as this organization continues to accomplish its mission.

In 2013 BRHS was very fortunate to move into its present location across from the Brookings Airport. The building was built specifically to house animals and provides a separate dog kennel area, rooms to house cats, natural lighting, and proper ventilation throughout the whole facility. There are also medical isolation, quarantine, treatment, and surgery rooms.

BRHS has been recognized for and has won multiple awards from both city and national organizations, including several Dog Rescue Awards and a nomination for the Governor’s Award.

The Golden State German Shepherd Rescue (Alameda, California 94501) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charitable organization. We are a small group of volunteers and have no paid staff, facility, office or kennel. Our volunteers are located mainly in the San Francisco Bay Area.

goldenstategermanshepherdrescue-ca

Our mission is to help German Shepherd Dogs in life-threatening situations, and to educate the public about this highly intelligent and versatile breed. Most of the German Shepherd Dogs we rescue come from the Northern and Central Valley regions of California .

Rescue is not simply taking animals out of shelters; it is also providing that animal with the opportunity through health care, behavioral and emotional assistance, to live out its life in a caring and loving home. Our goal is to find loving new homes for German Shepherd Dogs who are in need of a second chance; most of them have come from animal shelters in Northern California, where they have run out of time.

While we welcome the challenges that rescue work provides, it is not work we can do alone. We need help in the form of people and financial resources. Please consider joining us as a volunteer, a donor, or in any other manner in which you feel you can help. Your participation will be greatly appreciated by us, but – more importantly – by the dogs waiting for our help.
