Mission Statement

Our mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home animals in need of a second chance. They are provided medical care, quality nutrition and the opportunity to once again relax and socialize in a home environment, enabling them to be 'good citizens’ in their new life.


Rescue = We have an established and constantly growing network of shelters that we support. We have 3R representatives who regularly communicate and visit the shelters to save dogs who may be at the end of their time, need medical care or help those who are just not dealing well with shelter life. They are evaluated as best we can to ensure that they would be a good candidate for 3R Rescue. Once we have committed to a dog, the "Rehabilitation" phase begins.

Rehabilitation = All 3R dogs enter a standard program. Dogs that come to 3R are spayed/ neutered and updated on all shots. They are also put on a program designed specifically for their needs. For some dogs this means a nutritional program. For others it may mean taking care of long ignored medical conditions. Almost all require basic obedience training. Others require a program to make them again emotionally whole. Still others need time to learn socialize with other dogs and in some cases with people.

Re-home = We have several avenues to find a dog the right home

Waggin Trains - Our greatest success. We partner with other 501(c)(3) organizations to maximize resources to find dogs a new home.

Private Adoptions - We offer wonderful dogs for adoption.

Match-making Service - We have been very successful finding dogs for people who know exactly what they want and want to save a life!! You can complete our pre- adoption form if you are interested in this service.
