Who we are
Forever Home Rescue New England is a volunteer-run group that:
rescues homeless and unwanted dogs from high kill shelters, andrescues dogs from abusive and neglectful situations.
Our mission is to find loving forever homes for the dogs we rescue.
In the southern states where we find our dogs, the current laws do not favor animal rights. Abandoned, stray, and unwanted dogs are often euthanized after just a three day stay at a shelter, due to lack of room. Many of these dogs are sweet, loving animals. But they have been left to roam, are lost with no one trying to find them, or are dumped by the side of the road due to lack of owner commitment.
All of our posted dogs are currently living in our network of foster homes in the South and in New England, being lovingly cared for while they await their forever homes. Their fosters have a chance to observe them in all types of situations with children, other dogs, with cats so that we can determine if a dog has any issues that would make it suitable for only certain types of homes.
As of May, 2009, we have also begun taking local dogs through the PILOT program in MA (Pets in Limbo Out There) to help rehome some of our local pets displaced by the current economy.
And, as of July, 2009, we have begun a fund within the rescue to help pay the veterinary fees for dogs who have been turned down by other rescues due to injuries. These are dogs who are otherwise healthy and loving animals who, after surgery and rehab will still make wonderful pets. Part of our mission is to help heal these dogs and match them up with loving new families. We are in process of recruiting special foster homes to help in the physical rehab of these dogs. If you wish to donate to this fund, please click on the donate button on the left on our home page. Thank you!
Please enjoy reading about each of the wonderful dogs we have posted and consider whether you can provide one of them a loving forever home.
