Welcome to Town & Country K9 ResQ LTD, a registered 501(c)(3) charitable organization devoted to finding loving homes for adoptable pets and keeping current pets with their owners and out of the shelter system when times are tough. Starting an animal rescue has been a process, almost two years in the making. It started out by watching animal shelters curiously from the outside in, then donating, next volunteering and helping to search for missing pets. But none of that was enough. I could walk twenty dogs a day at the shelter where I volunteer, but only rarely did that help get anyone a forever home. Too often, good dogs and cats sit for weeks, months, and even years in cages through no fault of their own. These are highly adoptable pets, which languish behind bars for far too long. They could easily make the transition to obedient, well-trained pets if someone would just give them a chance. That’s where Town & Country steps in.
Town & Country was officially formed in November 2014. I have pulled over 150 dogs since starting Town & Country. The majority are pit bulls and all are in loving homes with rules, structure and boundaries. 98% of the dogs are from the Yonkers Animal Shelter. I am one of the only rescues who help them AND I am the only rescue to take hard cases and dogs that need rehabilitation.
I am a true believer in providing training and rehabilitation for dogs. I believe in second chances and I believe in educating people about training and work tirelessly to match the dog to the humans’ lifestyle and family structure. I also stay in touch with EVERY adopter. I am 100 % committed to ensuring that they have what they need for success. I have personally paid for over 30 dogs to go to board and trains and they stay until they are adopted. I do not believe in sending a dog to just a boarding facility, as they break down and their stress sky rockets. So I pay for as long as it takes; sometimes over a year.
I am looking for a Grant Writer to assist in finding money to build the indoor out door runs.
