We are a family of animal
lovers and have recently begun an animal rescue
organization in the hopes of making a small difference in
the ever growing problem of homeless pets in our local
areas. We have joined forces with D&D K9 Concepts in our
rescue efforts .
We rescue dogs
from Area shelters that are in danger of being euthanized. Animal Control
in San Antonio has a policy of
only holding strays for 3 days. This is a small window of
time to be reclaimed by their owners. Unfortunately the problem
in San Antonio is one of the worst in the Nation!
San Antonio has hired a rescue
coordinator that does nothing but find rescue
groups willing to take in these
homeless pets prior to them being put to sleep.
Promoting responsible pet
ownership and more adoptions in an effort to reduce the
number of stray and unwanted animals destroyed in
San Antonio each year.

I am a GOOD
This little guy was picked
up by Animal Control in San Antonio and was minutes from death when
we took him home....
thousands of pets just like Bert that need
was adopted 5/20/08 we will miss him!
The research was done at by
animal control and shelters all over the US, they have compiled
separate information for dogs and cats; they interviewed 380 people
who surrendered their dogs for adoption and 905 owners who kept
their animals. The control group was chosen from a random sample of
- Fifty-four percent of the
dogs surrendered were six months to three years old and 15 percent
were less than six months old. (The study included only acquired
dogs, not surrendered litters.)
- Fifty-one percent of dogs
surrendered had been purchased for less than $100 from a breeder
or private owner. Nearly nine percent from these private sources
cost more than $100 ; 2.5 percent came from pet stores; and 3.9
percent from litters produced in the home.
- Nearly 20 percent of the
surrendered dogs came from a shelter, and about the same number
were acquired as strays.
- Nearly 41 percent of the
surrendered dogs were obtained free from the previous owner.
- Behavior problems occurring
daily that contributed to surrender were:
- barking, 41 percent
- chewing 24 percent
- hyperactivity, 45 percent
- house training accidents,
- aggression to other pets,
less than eight percent
- aggression to people, less
than nine percent.
- Purebred pets are at lower
risk of surrender to shelters than mixed breeds, and dogs
purchased for more than $100 have the lowest risk factors of all.
- Dogs less than two years old
are at highest risk for abandonment, especially if they are mixed
breed, unneutered, live in a family with children, or require more
care or attention than the owners expected when they obtained the
- Dogs acquired between the
ages of one and two years are at higher risk for abandonment than
puppies, perhaps because they came to their new owners with
established behavior problems.
- Dogs that are adopted from a
shelter are at relatively high risk of return, leading to the idea
that behavior counseling programs at shelters should be evaluated
to determine their effectiveness.
- Dogs that spend most of
their time separated from the family, either in crates or in the
yard, are at greater risk. This discovery should warn obedience
instructors, shelter staffs, and veterinarians who recommend the
use of a crate that they must provide clear information on its
- Dogs that visit the
veterinarian more than once a year and those that attend obedience
classes — the best places to get educational information on
behavior — are more likely to remain in their original homes.
We always strongly urge you to look at all the
dogs available through other rescue groups.
We especially urge you
to look through your LOCAL POUND. Animals incarcerated
there have only a short period of times until being
put to death. (Ultimate reality folks!)
There are literally
hundreds of dogs available through a variety of groups and
individuals. Please support everyone's rescue efforts by adopting a
new family member. Please DO NOT BUY a dog. Breeders only perpetuate
the problem of too many pets and not enough homes for them.
||For more information,
|Foster homes are the backbone of
any rescue group. The more homes that are willing to foster,
the more dogs we can save. To foster for us, you must have a
securely fenced yard that is attached to your home, and be
willing to allow a foster dog to sleep in your home at night.
We can provide a crate for that purpose. Please email us if
you are interested in helping foster. We would need to know
your requirements too. Do you need a dog that is cat, dog,
child compatible? Are you able and willing to exercise a
foster dog? Have you had a dog before? The more information
you can provide for us, the better ability
we have to match you up with a suitable foster dog. Let us
know if you are willing to help by fostering!
