Rainbow Animal Refuge (Lyndora, Pennsylvania 16045) is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization made up strictly of volunteers who have a love for animals. Established in 1996, we are dedicated to caring for and placing stray and abandoned animals in Butler County, Pennsylvania. We do not have a free standing building as we rely on individual foster homes to care for our foster animals.


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.

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.

Friends With Four Paws (Oklahoma City, Oklahoma 73156) is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization formed to rescue animals at the Chickasha Animal Shelter in Oklahoma from imminent death by having mobile adoption locations and providing foster care for dogs and cats. Founded in 1998, we have matched several dogs and cats with their perfect, forever homes, where they otherwise would have been sent to the Rainbow Bridge.


Our program has drastically changed throughout time, as many do. We get our animals from local municipal shelters and from the general public. Once they are in our program, they go to a foster for several weeks, get all of their veterinary work done, and are listed for adoption.

Our transport program allows us to move dogs through our system fairly quickly, which means we are able to save many lives. Our adoptive homes are all over the United States including: Oklahoma, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, and even Maine! We LOVE our adopters, fosters and volunteers and would not be able to make the difference we make without them.

The mission of Forgotten Cats, Inc. (Greenville, Delaware 19807) is to reduce the unwanted cat population without killing and to stop the suffering of the thousands of kittens born to abandoned, homeless cats.


We do this by working with colony caretakers to trap, sterilize, vaccinate, and return every cat within a colony. We provide the necessary medical treatment for sick or injured feral cats, stray cats, and kittens. We are working to find homes for adoptable cats and kittens. We also provide education about spay neuter, and we are assisting other cat rescue groups with trap, neuter, and return programs.

Despite the existence of many animal welfare organizations, the plight of the homeless cat has been ignored by most. For decades, extermination has been the only method utilized to control the homeless cat population. Despite this cruel method of population control, the homeless cat population has not decreased, thus proving that trap and kill does not work.

Forgotten Cats was formed in 2003 (and incorporated as a 501(c)(3) non-profit in 2004) to provide a humane and effective way to prevent the suffering of kittens born to abandoned and homeless cats by humanely controlling the homeless and feral cat population. Starting with no funding and very few volunteers, Forgotten Cats worked to trap, neuter and release (TNR) 20 cats a week. As the word spread about the success of the TNR program, it became clear that Forgotten Cats currently manages one of the largest trap, neuter and return programs nationally.

Gentle Ben’s Giant Breed Rescue is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) large breed dog rescue whose primary concern is to give abandoned dogs who end up in shelters or are needing to be re-homed by a family due to divorce, loss of job, illness, etc. a chance to find a new loving family. We are here to assist.

When we take in a dog, he/she become part of our family where they are cared for and loved.

All of our dogs are in our home. All are well socialized.  We feel that is the best way to learn the most about a dog. We can see how he/she interacts with other dogs and people. We try to know just about everything we can about a dog… any quirks, likes, dislikes, favorite place to sleep, favorite toy, etc.

We make sure that each dog is fully vetted, vaccinated, heartworm tested, de-wormed, spayed/neutered, and microchipped. We have had dogs come in who tested positive for heartworm disease, have had cherry eye or entropian, severe allergies, etc. All have always been fully medically treated.

We are very patient and careful in matching up a family to a particular dog. Although the family might be wonderful, if we do not feel the dog would be the right fit, we will not place the dog. We take this very seriously as these dogs are one of our family and have been through enough and we want to make sure their next home is their forever home.

SAGE (Dillsburg, Pennsylvania 17019) is a recently started organization founded to raise awareness and make a difference in the lives of the closest relative of the Greyhound, its cousin the Galgo Espanol.


With over 10 years experience in Galgo rescue the founder of SAGE decided to use her knowledge and contacts to set up SAGE after she moved from Europe to the US.

Our main goal is trying to educate people about the situation of the Spanish Galgo by giving seminars and through use of the internet. While we are open to work wiht other rescues in Spain, our closest connection at this moment is with Asociacion BaasGalgo. The Spanish organization is working in two areas, Castilla la Mancha and Andalucia. Both are known for their cruelty to the Galgo. We also support shelters through fundraising.

While we do not believe that bringing Galgos to the US is the answer to the problem in Spain, we rey to make an annual trip to one or more shelters in Spain and bring back a few dogs that need homes. We will not rule out any dog, including dogs that have specific medical needs, if that can be provided for them here in the US. Typically the dogs chosen for travel to the US are those that have been in the shelter for a longer period of time or stand the least chance of being adopted.
