Help Save One is a registered, non profit organization that functions as an advocate for dogs who are in danger of being gassed. We believe gassing is a barbaric way to euthanize an innocent animal. You will see it mentioned several times on this website but I want it in big capitals on our home page:
IF GASSING IS INHUMANE FOR CHILD MURDERERS AND SERIAL RAPISTS THEN WHY IS IT ACCEPTABLE FOR OUR INNOCENT ANIMALS?
Answer is very simple - It is not acceptable and never will be.
We believe in letting people know exactly what happens when a dog is gassed. I am sorry if you are sensitive and don't want to hear the details. I am sorry if you want to turn your head away.
I am not sorry enough to stop helping them though.
We work on pulling the dogs of North Carolina, South Carolina, Kentucky, Tennessee, and Georgia. We are not opposed to pulling from other shelters and we are definitely not opposed to pulling from our own local RI shelters, or shelters in New England. If you have a request please let us know. Please note though that we can not always accommodate every request we will try to help. I can make you a promise that we will always try to help. No one here will ever berate you for wanting to save a dog in need even if they come from out of state.
Our main focus are dogs in high kill, gassing shelters. They languish in rural shelters with very little help. There are volunteers in at these shelters that work tirelessly but they are overwhelmed and outnumbered by the sheer numbers. Why should these dogs be overlooked? Why do they need to wait to die while we work to get laws changed? We work very hard to change the way things are at a state and local level but is the answer to let beautiful dogs die a horrible death while us humans works on the specifics? Looking for foster homes for rescued dogs. Please go to the site and fill out the foster application. Must be willing to pay for food, toys and take the dog to and from vet visits. Vet bills will be paid by the rescue-must be approved first. Can't foster-donate time for fund raising!
