Mission Statement

At A Buddy for Life Inc, we believe that every living creature deserves love and security, and to be treated with the respect and responsibility that come with belonging to a family. Our goal is to save the lives of as many dogs as possible, making sure that each of those lives, in turn, touches another. To support that goal, AB4L finds foster families to protect those who would otherwise be discarded and to teach the abused that they are worth our time and affection; we provide a chance to those who have been forgotten or never even known, and the dogs we rescue bring joy to those who open their homes and hearts to our ever-growing family. Through the hard work of many and the grace of second chances, we are working to make sure that more lives may be changed for the better by having A Buddy for life.


We are an all-volunteer non-profit rescue organization, formed in January, 2006, based in New Castle, Delaware. Our mission is to save dogs from kill shelters in surrounding states. Some of these shelters only hold dogs for a few days and, when their owners do not come for them, they are euthanized, most often due to lack of space in these shelters to house the dogs. These are the shelters we have chosen to work with in order to give these dogs a second change to find forever homes. At least half of the dogs we save are black dogs because statistics have shown that black dogs, particularly large black dogs like labradors and lab mixes, have a very difficult time getting adopted, and are euthanized at a staggering rate at many animal control facilities throughout the country. The sad truth is, they are overlooked in favor of lighter colored dogs because the lighter colored dogs show better in a dark, poorly lit, caged environment as in a shelter.
