Dog RescueDog rescue can take place in lots of ways like pet adoption through a shelter, a simple act of kindness when you take in a dog because their owner passed away or when you make a donation to help another pet parent who can’t afford to pay for emergency surgery to save their dog’s life, however there are much more heroic animal rescues that happen every day in ways that may surprise you like the people who do cancer research, jump into icy ponds to save a drowning horse or stop traffic to carry a dog to safety that has been hit by a car.

The human desire to help animals and perform a dog rescue may not be recognized every day but there are millions of generous animal lovers globally who give their blood, sweat and tears plus their money to save the lives of all kinds of animals like dogs, cats, birds, penguins, birds, monkeys, snakes and the noble rhinoceros.

As you read this news bulletin, Dog Health News wants you to think of your family, friends, colleagues and others and organizations that you know who have gone way beyond the call of duty for animal welfare or dog rescue and then consider what action you could take to recognize their work or you could share a personal story of your own to inspire others to do the same.

How to Recognize Pet Rescues and Places You Can Volunteer Your Time And Expertise

Dog Rescue

PetPartners created the Animaltarian of the Year Award and defined an animaltarian as a person who seeks to support animal welfare or an animal who assists to advance human welfare.

Here are 7 questions you can ask yourself to see if you know someone to recognize for being exceptional representatives of animal welfare and pet rescue.  Maybe that someone is YOU!…

1. Who do you know that has gone the extra mile for an animal or dog rescue?

2. What animal do you know that has helped another animal or a human?

3. What animal hospital do you know that has saved a pet with no concern for the cost?

4. Do you know an animal or a person who risked their life to save a human or an animal?

5. Are there service dog training companies that you know that deserve recognition for all the work they do to train service dogs to help people in need?

6. Who are the best vets in your community?

7. Do you know a dog that exhibits extraordinary compassionate behavior that helps people or other animals?

3 Examples of Pet and Dog Rescue and Support

 Baby Owl – my friend found a baby owl that had fallen out of it’s nest and made sure the owl was protected until it’s parents were able to take over.  Often, the parents of owls will not take the baby owl back into the nest if it falls out.

• Stray Dog – my hair stylist took in a stray dog in Maine and gave this little dog a shampoo and haircut before finding him a forever home in spite of the fact that he got little to no assistance from the community.

• Aquatic Therapy – Good Dog Aquatic Fitness helps dogs like 14 year old Conor with therapy to improve mobility when your dog has an injury or suffers from arthritis.
