ABOUT US Rescue ME Clifford is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization dedicated to saving the lives of dogs in rural communities, who have a high probability of being euthanized. Once a dog is identified as being at risk, we will do our best efforts to tend to the dog’s medical needs, provide all appropriate vaccinations and tests, spay/neuter the dog, and place the dog in a foster home until a permanent home is found. To increase our likelihood of success, we will work in partnership with other organizations, including those in more urban areas. Clifford was just moments away from death. He had already been placed in the gas chamber of the kill shelter. One woman kept pounding on the door, unwilling to give up. Just to get rid of her, shelter staff handed Clifford over. ​ If it had not been for that woman, our President, Marilyn, would not have had Clifford for the five years that she had him. ​ We like to say we “rescue” shelter animals. They are there for us, good times and bad, without judgement. If you can’t count on anything else, the one thing that you can count on is that your dog will be at home at the end of the day, wagging tail, ecstatic to see you. ​ So both Clifford, and that anonymous woman, remain our inspiration. She rescued Clifford; Clifford rescued Marilyn–dogs and people–we rescue each other.
