Pound Hounds Res-q is a 5013c NYC based animal rescue that is devoted to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome animals that come through the NYC Animal Care and Control shelter and other local shelters and places them into forever loving foster and adoptive homes. We pull dogs off the Euthanasia Lists from NYACC, Newark NJ, Camden, NJ, and Philly shelters.
Pound Hounds Res-Q believes that every animal deserves a loving home. How that happens takes lots of work. We try to pair t he animal with the best possible foster or adopter home available. We take into consideration the initial behavior evaluation and the volunteers evaluation. We also consider the animal's environment at the shelter. It's not science, but it helps us pair us the best possible pets/people.
Furthermore, we then look at the family dynamics. Are they active, are they quite, etc. This gives us a better prospective of what animals would be right for them and their lifestyle. We look at the total environment, kids, other pets etc. It's not perfect, but it helps enormously in placing every animal with the right family.
It's truly a challenge, but it's something that we don't take lightly. It's a big effort but so rewarding in the long run.
We do not have a facility but rather rely on a network of committed loving foster homes that see these animals through to adoption. It is a selfless act and every single one of our fosters help us save another precious life.
