GUARDIANS OF RESCUE AND REHABILITATION

Image_202107162028

Guardians of Rescue & Rehabilitation is an all-volunteer, non-profit, animal rescue organization dedicated to rescuing and providing care of abandoned, neglected and abused animals. Guardians of Rescue is completely funded through fundraising efforts and public donations. All of our pets are cared for by foster homes and receive complete medical care, which includes worming, vaccinations, spaying/neutering and usually microchipping prior to their adoption.

Why Foster?
1. It saves adoptable animals from probable death at an overcrowded shelter.
2. It removes animals from a traumatic shelter environment and gives them a happy home to live in (and be trained) while they await their forever home.
3. It gives the foster parent the benefits of having a pet without the long-term commitment (or gives their pet a playmate).
4. It allows the foster family to learn the animal’s personality so they can help the forever family determine whether it’s a good fit for them.
5. It allows the foster family to screen applicants and ensure that the pet is going to a good home.
6. If you plan to adopt a dog or cat in the future, it gives the foster parent incredible insight into what they do or don’t want in their own pet.
7. Makes a huge difference in many lives and has been proven to help with depression (which is currently affecting so many due to current situations).
8. Keeps you healthy and active.
