    Old Yeller Ranch RescueOld Yeller Ranch Rescue is dedicated to rescuing urgent dogs from shelters throughout California. We are not shelter or breed exclusive. We have a small facility in Los Olivos, CA where we foster up to 15 dogs at a time as an intermediate home until a forever home is found. In fostering these dogs, it is our goal to work with them through the traumatic stress that usually accompanies a dog leaving a chaotic shelter. We pride ourselves on being open and honest in trying to place our dogs with a compatible forever home. We test for dog aggression, child compatibility, leash and standard obedience and if necessary, cat compatibility. We provide as much veterinary care as the dog needs to be able to enter his/her new forever home with a substantial amount of information on his/her current state of health. We give these dogs love and affection and will work tirelessly to find them their perfect forever home that they deserve.

To bring hope to those who have none, to see the downhearted and defeated experience joy again, and to remind the forgotten dogs that they are loved and their life is precious . . . that is our mission.

    Shadow’s Fund: Who We Are and What We Do:
    Shadow’s Fund was Co-Founded in 2009 by Cody Rackley and Jill Anderson as a tribute to their beloved senior dog Shadow, a 15 yr old dog that was found tied to a tree with a note that read “he’s too old”. Touched by the plight of this grey bearded dog, Jill and Cody welcomed Shadow into their home. After Shadow’s passing, the fund was formed to help senior dogs in shelters find loving homes in which to spend the last chapter of their lives. In time, the mission broadened to address other “at risk” shelter dogs, including dogs who are labelled “pit bulls” or are passed over for adoption because of a treatable illness or injury.

  • PAWS-Pet Animal Welfare Society

    About PAWS

    PAWS rescues & re-homes approximately 115 dogs and 435 cats annually. Many of the dogs faced euthanasia at local pounds and most of the cats that we help are strays and abandoned cats that roam our streets. A portion of the pets that come to PAWS have been relinquished by their owners who are no longer able to care for them.

    PAWS has a handful of paid staff and a team of dedicated volunteers that help with everything to fundraising, to kennel work, to walking dogs and much, much more. Every person at PAWS is a valued & needed member of our team - without them we could not accomplish the miracle that happen every day! We constantly seek to increase the number of lives we can save by finding adoptive homes for the animals in our care, working closely with other animal groups, and raising funds to secure the supplies and facilities necessary for our operation. PAWS also seeks to decrease the number of unwanted pets by informing and educating the public about the importance of spaying and neutering.

    Their History

    PAWS is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that began in 1962 by Westport, Connecticut resident Betty Long to rescue homeless dogs and place them in permanent homes. In the early 1980s, our rescue efforts were expanded to include cats. For 37 years, PAWS rented space from local boarding kennels & veterinary hospitals. Over time, the demands placed on us by the community increased and we felt that in order to increase & expand our services, we would need our own shelter. In 1999, PAWS undertook the task of building a shelter of our own. We moved into our own shelter in 2001 and have since greatly increased the number of pets we have been able to help.

  • Protectors of Animals

    We've worked with Protectors of Animals for a number of years. Before they built their shelter, we would even house some of their adoptable pets for them and one of their founders, Sue Carros, managed our kennel for years.

    Through fundraising endeavors and public support, STARS is wholly dedicated to its mission. An impounded animal at the Stratford Animal Control Facility receives the following as a means of life longevity, pet overpopulation control and to make a more balanced animal for the purpose of permanent adoption:

    Disease Testing

  • Big Dogs Huge Paws Rescue

    We want to share with you our vision on how to address the urgent and growing need for a responsible, long term, and self sustaining Giant Breed Rescue in today’s society.

    Big Dogs Huge Paws was founded on the core philosophy is that every "BIG" dog deserves a chance. Our goal is to make sure that every dog receives only the best of care, food, and training. We will also ensure that they are properly evaluated (medically and behaviorally) and placed according to their special needs. Our medical officer and veterinarian team will provide first aid training to all foster volunteers and health seminars about the latest developments in animal medicine. We work actively with professional behaviorists who train each foster home how to handle introductions, properly evaluate dogs, work through specific behavioral issues, etc. Foster families undergo quarterly training sessions in order to maintain everyone's skills and abilities and ensure that the entire foster team is on the same page and has the tools they need for success. We will be working toward a special therapy dog training program as we identify dogs that would be good candidates and other potential partnerships. Eventually, our goal is to secure an actual facility where we can work with special behavioral or medical cases to give them the optimal chance of success!

    The dogs we have chosen to focus our rescue efforts on include, Great Danes, Great Pyrenees, Newfoundlands, Saint Bernards, Mastiffs (All Types), Irish Wolfhounds, and Scottish Deerhounds. There is a huge need due to the fact that most of these breeds do not have any legitimate rescue options and there are always more dogs in need than any one organization can help.

    We will be taking a unique approach to public awareness and reaching outside of the box in our efforts. Community outreach and public relations are extremely important to Big Dogs Huge Paws. We believe that through being proactive and serving as a resource to the public as well as working together with the rest of the rescue community, we can decrease the number of dogs needing rescue in the first place and ensure that no gentle giant in need is forgotten or left behind.

    We are hard at work setting up an on-line store for all pet owners across the country! It will be a place that anyone can go to purchase everything they need such as feeders, beds, collars, gentle leaders, leashes, pet grass, cleaning supplies, grooming supplies, dog food, etc. 100% of net profits will go straight to the rescue to help the giant breeds in need. We feel there will be tremendous support for the store from customers due to the knowledge that all profits will be going to charity. We anticipate the store growing quickly and our goal is to eventually have freestanding stores as well, so stayed tuned!

    We have created and are utilizing a forum environment as part our website to make communication more efficient as well as provide a very complete and useful resource for volunteers and the general public to access information on all aspects of the rescue. Volunteers will have a private area of the forum they can access and post in for internal rescue communications as well as a Foster Blog.

    We have done a lot of research by talking with different local and national rescues and studying their organizational strengths and weaknesses. We have coupled that with our own first hand rescue experience and have decided the best way to protect the new rescue from the vulnerabilities and political issues that so many rescues suffer from is to build the management structure more like a true business.

    Our leadership team consists of an upper tier of corporate officers, including a CEO/Chief Executive Officer, COO/Chief Operating Officer, CFO/Chief Financial Officer, CAO/Chief Administrative Officer and CMO/Chief Medical Officer. Then there is a Senior Management Team including Accounting Director, Operations Director, Retail Director, Information's Technology Director, Fundraising Director, Human Resource Director, Marketing Director, Media Director, Community Outreach Director, and Foster Director. Each member of our team is appointed by the officers based on their skills and abilities - rather than voted into office due to their popularity or the lack of other qualified candidates willing to run. Our primary goal with the organizational structure is to build a cohesive and respectful team of professionals who we can trust to "oversee" the daily operations and put together teams of volunteers to carry out the actual day to day activities. This strategy not only gets more volunteers involved, but removes the tremendous burden directors often experience in non-profit organizations. The directors "delegate" responsibilities which enables them to truly make a difference and not get bogged down with doing everything themselves. Our goal was to create a very positive and efficient working environment based on trust and merit to enable change and progress as we grow!

  • Internet Miniature Pinscher Service

    The IMPS mission is to improve the lives of homeless and abandoned Miniature Pinschers through rescue and the love and respect that comes with humane care, compassion and kindness.
    IMPS attempts to assist Miniature Pinschers in need by providing foster care, transport, adoptive homes, veterinary care, and other services and information for the well-being of Miniature Pinschers. All Miniature Pinschers placed through IMPS will be spayed or neutered prior to placement, and have been thoroughly evaluated by a breed representative for temperament and training needs. IMPS requires reimbursement of all necessary veterinary costs (eg. the cost of the spay/neuter, microchipping, and any veterinary care required prior to placement), and in some instances, travel costs. A donation to the organization is requested with each adoption so that we may continue to care for chronically ill and/or severely injured foster dogs. In all cases, any expenses related to the adoption will be agreed upon prior to placement. While the Adoption expenses may be negotiable for some dogs, please remember that the care and upkeep of a dog, even the "King of Toys", requires some financial outlay, and if a small placement expense is beyond your means, you may wish to consider a pet which does not require as much care as the Miniature Pinscher

    All of our dogs are fostered prior to adoption. Our organization prides itself on providing safe and promising second chances to these dogs while they await their new homes. Our foster homes allow for social development and many times direction for learning basic commands, housebreaking and exposure to children, cats, and other dogs.

    Depression rates of puppies and dogs kept for long periods of time in a shelter rapidly increase with each day as they wait for a new home. Foster homing can assist in alleviating unnecessary stress for some of our dogs who have come to us under serious circumstances.
