About Us

Who We Are!

: SaveARescue is different than any other website in that you can reach someone for help with a pet 24/7.   We make ourselves available to help ~ the only known pet website, and APP, that is here for anyone who needs immediate help for their pet.  Owning a pet is ’emotional’ and we are just like anyone out there that cares about the life of their pet or any pet in need, and this website was built to be the ‘center, hub’ Resource, 911, nationwide.  We have received over 20,000 calls and saved over 7,000+ Dogs and Cats in a very short space of time.  We are now reaching out to get financial support so we can make this service known to the public and be in a position to help do more, be more, save more.  We know with financial support we can save thousands, yes thousands, more every month.  The abandoned, dumped, locked away in empty buildings and homes, left out in the frigid winter elements without shelter, or dumped in our deserts, swamps, everglades, rural and urban streets of Ameria.  Our documented calls is giving evidence and proof that the abandonment & dumping could well equal or exceed the # of Dogs & Cats turned into Shelters [6 million/annuallyk].  SaveARescue is the ONLY free resource service offering help.

:  We Serve, partner with and coordinate Saves Every day from our database representing more than 22,000+ Dog & Cat Rescues Nationwide, including Canada.

:  We are ‘live’ and help anyone reaching out to SaveARescue to report, get help, advice, resources or support to save any Cat or Dog in any kind of life-threatening emergency.

:  We are the 1st responders for Dogs & Cats in need.

:  This website, and our free APP, lists more Dog & Cat Rescues than any other website

:  SaveARescue is the only “All-In-One” Search Directory listing the most Dog & Cat Rescues, their adoptables and Pet Services in 18 Categories.

:  SaveARescue lists all the 24/7 Emergency Vet Clinics ~ especially in need in after hours when a pet owner is desperate to find help for a pet in a life-threatening situation.

:  SaveARescue holds month long contests giving away thousands of lbs. and dollars worth of quality pet food to Rescues & Shelters, yes….shipped free!

:  SaveARescue was created to partner with and help the ‘low hanging fruit on the tree’ in the Rescue/Shelter arenas.  85-90% of all the rescuing going on in this country are from the ‘mum & pops’ who are pulling and saving dogs and cats from their local, high kill, Shelters.  These folks are the most deserving of and in need of our support, aid and help vs. the large Non-Profit rescues that spend millions on advertising and very little of their donations and grants ever goes to saving Dogs and Cats.  We are here to support the gals and guys ‘in the trenches’ every day, max’d out with the number of saves they take on, and are in need of the most and best support available to them.  SaveARescue is here for them.



SaveARescue is a 501 [c] 3 non-profit organization, totally operated by unpaid Volunteers donating their time every day to serve, partner with the over 22,000+ Dog & Cat Rescues, Shelters & Animal Services nationwide & Canada.  We list all their adoptables, we play “Robin Hood” and donate tons of quality Pet Food, shipped free, no strings attached and totally free to Rescues everywhere.  We host month long ‘contests’ giving away these tons of pet foods and products.  We host a “Hotline” for the pet caring public to reach out to us for resources, aid, support and help with any Dog or Cat in a life-threatening situation, anywhere, anytime, any how.  We help connect people seeking to rescue, adopt, foster, volunteer to Rescues in their communities they weren’t aware of and want to help and/or adopt from.  We are the “voice” for all the Rescues & Shelters and create ‘villages’ to “Shine the Light” on them, to help them be more successful ~ as its all part of the ‘wheel of life’ for these wonderful pets in need.

We are dedicated to reduction of euthanasia of shelter dogs & cats and the puppy mill industry that ‘fuel’ and supply retail pet stores with puppies, teaching staff to say these puppies come from “reputable breeders” [aka:  puppy mills].   

Our most important project that we head and is the 1st time ever available service is our “Hotline” that will help save thousands more Dogs & Cats every month.  Since we launched it, without any fan fare or marketing, we’ve received more than 20,000+ phone calls and have been able to coordinate and save more than 7,000+ Cats & Dogs in a very short span of time.  We have now launched a “Petition” for signatures that we will be taking to Washington to get a dedicated government funded “911” Hotline, toll free, for reporting any animal abuse, abandonment, dumping, hit by vehicles and in immediate need of help, dogs & cats left out in the elements without shelter that will kill them, etc.  ~ SaveARescue is now the ‘1st responders’ to create immediate life-saving action to get any and all pets to safe havens and in loving hands. 

We have documented for the 1st time ever, via our “Hotline”  the abandoned, abused, neglected, dumped, locked away alone in empty buildings & homes, left to die slow deaths in our deserts, swamps and everglades, or tied without shelter to suffer day and night exposure to the unsustainable winter elements.    We believe the number of Dogs & Cats in these situatuions likely equals or out numbers the 6 million turned into Shelters annually. 

SaveARescue is now the ‘hub’ and saving  30-60 dogs and cats every day.  Through our donations and grants we pay for the initial Vet exams for the pets hit on our roads and highways, still alive and left to die, but good Samaritans have called us for advice and we pay to get the pet to the nearest Vet Clinic immediately.  All that matters is to ‘save’ the dog/cat & we pay the initial expenses and create resources that will take care of the pet financially and in fostering until it can find a new and loving home.   

                       Our motto is “Every Living thing’s Life is Important to It as Our life is to Us”. 


SaveARescue promotes low cost spay & neutering, adopting and rescuing, saving and partnering with All Dog & Cat Rescues & Shelters.  Together we can save thousands more a month.  


“Hotline” ~ 911 for Dogs & Cats in Life-Threatening Situations

SaveARescue’s “Hotline”/911 is the 1st & Only Resource & “1st Responder” Resource for anyone to reach out to us, 24/7, for all Dog & Cat Emergencies, throughout the USA & Canada.

Please sign our Petition so we cant get a dedicated, government funded, “Hotline” that will be able to handle the # of calls we know we’ll get once the Pet Caring Publice discovers this Life-Saving Pet Resource available to All.

We tested our National, Toll Free, “Hotline” and in a short 18 months received more than 22,000+ call-ins and were able to save more than 7,000+ Dogs & Cats from death’s door.  We have now launched a petition to launch a government funded 911 “Hotline” dedicated for Dogs & Cats in life-threatening situations and taking it to Washington, D.C., to implement.  We feel the operational overhead will cost tax payers less than 5 cents annually from their submitted federal taxes.  Well worth it!  You can find our petition on www.Care2.com, our partners.  We hope you will sign and forward this petition to every dog and cat enthusiast out there.  This is the 1st time every a “Hotline” will be implemented and an ‘action based’ resource for all the abandoned, abused, neglected, hit on the highways and our streets and left alive to die slowly, or chained outdoors in unsustainable weather elements, locked alone in empty buildings and homes to die slow deaths or worse yet dumped in rural America, on our urban streets, in the everglades for the snakes & alligators or to die slowly in our deserts.  We know you will join us to offer this life-saving center and resource that will save thousands more Dogs & Cats monthly around our country.  Thank you.
