Animals That Need Rescue
If you can rescue an animal on this list, please email Jennifer Sigmon at rescuejennifer@yahoo.com. To offer rescue placement to an animal on this list, you must email Jennifer.
If your rescue group has never pulled from our shelter then we will need to approve your group to pull from us. We would need to get a rescue group agreement filled out and sent back along with a copy of your group's 501c3 and a copy of your group's adoption contract. Rescue group approval may take 24 hours or more depending contact to the references. Please remember to fill out the rescue group agreement entirely. Please do not wait until the "need out" date to begin the process of pulling an animal. We do not have the ability to be no-kill due to the extremely limited holding space we have and the numbers we take in.
Our main method of contact regarding rescues is EMAIL.
Please note: We cannot guarantee the breed of the animal. We can only speak as to what breed we think the animal is.
