The mission of In Our Hands Rescue (IOHR) is to prevent the needless suffering, neglect, and euthanasia of pets from around the United States through an efficient, effective, and adopter-focused foster program and eventually a brick and mortar kennel.
In Our Hands Rescue is currently made up of mostly volunteers and network of fosters who open their homes to animals in need. We successfully adopt over 1000 animals in the past couple of years. We rescue abused, abandoned, neglected, sick, injured, and homeless animals. Mostly from the Southern states, and most recently from Egypt.
We are all volunteers, the more volunteers the more animals we can save and get forever homes.

This was a carnival adoption event. First time at this location. First time unveiling of the new trailer. Lots of pre-approved adopters showed up, about 60? Between the volunteers, people just walking by, adopters, fosters, animals, 7 different types of activities stations, there was a lot going on. They still managed to get about 70% of the animals adopted into great forever homes. And fosters took the rest, came back on Sunday and got more animals adopted.
Great event! Lots of fun!
Congrats to you IOHR for finding homes for so many beautiful rescues.

There was no organization. I arrived and couldn't find my coordinator for another 45 minutes, and also had nothing to do the entire time. This was a pet adoption carnival and not even the people that were adopting the pets knew what to do.
This was a great opportunity! Spending a day volunteering with In Our Hands is a very organic and loving experience. During my trip, I cuddled a lot of puppies, answered a bunch of questions, and met a lot of great people who are real animal lovers. Pro advice: bring a lint roller!
