    Talking Adopt from a Rescue, make room to save more...

    If you are looking to adopt an animal, be it dog or cat or even a rabbit, please check your local rescues. These rescue groups pull the animals from the shelter or take owner surrenders to keep them from death row at the shelter, but every dog we have in rescue that isn't adopted takes up room, keeping us from helping other dogs.

    The other way to really help rescue and save dogs/cats from being killed at the shelter is to be a foster home, opening your home to these wonderful animals and being their "bridge" from their old life to their new life.

    Local organizations:

    Lucky Ones

    Second Hope Rescue

    Happy Cats

    AARF

    SMAWL

    CAWL

    Humane Society of Calvert County

    Golden Retriever Rescue of Southern Maryland

    Bunny Magic

    The Thelma Foundation

    Greyt Expectations Greyhound Rescue

    Pets with Disabilities

    Throwaways Rescue

    Doodle Dawgs and Fabulous Felines

    Humane Society of Charles County

    Beagle Rescue of Southern Maryland

    Tri County Animal Shelter

    Petfinder

    Prince George's Animal Management

    Lab Rescue of LRCP

    Would they like a nice tabby cat to go with her?

    Although frankly, AppyPasoWhateveah, I've been pretty nice to you anyway.

    I think Vrai should make this a "sticky" so that it's always an easily accessible thread for anyone that stumbles into this forum.
    Imagine how much better America would be if you would simply don a pair a pants before sitting down at your Playskool My First 'Puter.

    I nominate Kwillia as the honorary "Thread Bumper" for this thread. Kwill, you'll have to bump it at least every other day.
