Mission Statement

We raise funds to provide grants for specific dogs in shelters. Our focus is primarily on smaller, overcrowded, and underfunded rural shelters that typically operate below the radar in Appalachia and the Southeast. Our efforts are aimed at providing grants to otherwise adoptable dogs in these shelters who are least likely to get adopted (older dogs, black dogs, special-needs dogs, medical-needs dogs), regardless of breed. We also help dogs who are on a shelter's euthanasia list; these dogs have very little time. Rescue incentive grant offers are also made for shelter dogs. By covering part or all of the costs of necessary veterinary care, etc. for these dogs most at risk, they are far more likely to be taken by a rescue. We assist rescues that commit to these at-risk dogs with veterinary care, temporary boarding, transport, and other costs.


We are here to put at-risk dogs on the RADAR by raising vital funds and providing 100% of those funds as grants to help get at-risk dogs out of shelters, into rescues and on to forever homes. The dogs we assist are the most urgently at risk in rural shelters, including senior dogs, black dogs and dogs with medical or special needs. These dogs are adoptable, but often need financial assistance for veterinary care. Your help will better enable us to save more at-risk dogs.
