As a dog owner myself, I’m always a big fan of dog shelters that are providing value for dogs and the dog owner’s community. Because of this, I wanted to do a roundup post of the top dog shelters around the world that are providing excellent value for dogs. All these dog shelters deserve a mention and appreciation.
A while back, we wrote an article on “These Are The Top Nonprofits For Dogs That’s Making A Difference”
If you’re into supporting non-profits, then please read that article as well. Without further ado, let’s get things moving!
1. Animal Welfare League
The Animal Welfare League’s been around forever since the mid-60s to be exact and they’ve been providing excellent value for dogs. They’ve expanded a lot in the recent years and now take care of more than 800 dogs!
2. Rez Dog Rescue
Rez Dog Rescue is a non-profit animal rescue organization located on the Yakama Indian Reservation. They specialize in finding perfect homes for abused, injured, or unloved cats and dogs. Although they operate within the reservation, they will go anywhere in reason to help an unloved animal.
3. Warrior Dog Foundation
Warrior Dog Foundation was founded by former Navy Seal Mike Ritland. Go veterans! The purpose of Warrior Dog Foundation is to help Special Forces K-9’s transfer from the battlefield back to leading normal lives.
Humans aren’t the only ones that suffer from post war mental health related issues. Dogs that are sent to the battlefield go through the same struggle with post war transitions. Warrior Dog Foundation wants to help dogs get back to their normal life! Much props!
4. Pup Squad
Pup Squad was founded by members of the City of Houston’s animal control called BARC. They have been around since 2008. Their mission is to rescue orphaned puppies and nursing litters from the streets, shelters and other life-threatening situations and match them with permanent adoptive homes, and to provide support and education to these adopters and the community at large.
They will work with other community rescue efforts to promote spay/neuter, adoption and humane animal care to ultimately reduce the number of animals euthanized in Houston and surrounding areas.
5. Candi International
Candi International was formed when founder Darci Galati took a trip to Cancun, Mexico with her family. She was overwhelmed at the amount of stray dogs and cats living in the streets, eating out of the garbage, and not having any love or care.
Candi provides sterilization programs than can be set up in any country to help with overpopulation of dogs and cats. If you live abroad or live in an area that could benefit from this program, we definitely recommend you looking into them.
6. Coming Home Rescue
Coming Home Rescue was formed in 2009 in New Jersey. However, in that amount of time they have saved over 850 animals with the help of 25-30 volunteers on average. When the founders learned that 38,000 dogs are euthanized in New Jersey alone per year, they knew something had to be done about it.
7. Deaf Dog Rock
Deaf Dogs Rock – it all started with an abandoned deaf boxer pup named Nitro (click here to read his story).
In a little over six years, Deaf Dogs Rock has grown and evolved from a family wishing to help others by providing information to a non-profit organization run by a board of directors, approved by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) public charity. International reach, hundreds of dogs saved, a community of 52,000+ sharing support, it has been a pleasure and we are incredibly excited about the future of the organization.
As a non-profit charitable organization, Deaf Dogs Rock will always be 100% transparent to the public.
8. Green Dog Project
Their mission is simple, but it’s definitely worth mentioning. They take a nature based approach to animal welfare. Their goal is to educate the community on animal welfare and how to care for animals.
They are working to fix overcrowding, behavior skills, social skills, and more by showing people how to care for their animals. They are doing some really awesome things with community outreach. Everyone needs to take a look at their project. They accept donations as well.
9. Lawrence Humane Society
Lawrence Humane Society helps over 3,500 dogs find homes each year. They have a ton of great services that promote the welfare of dogs. Some of the programs include: stay animal care, cruelty investigations, adoptions, lost and found, fundraising, and outreach advocacy programs.
They’re truly a balanced organization in terms of offering services that help advance animal welfare. Lawrence Humane Society is also known for making non-biased decisions which benefit the community.
10. Faithful Friends
Faithful Friends truly runs a quality organization. They are a no kill shelter out of Delaware, and they never turn down a dog or euthanize. Their mission is to provide quality, low-cost veterinary services to our community; help families to keep their pets and community cats healthy, and avoid preventable euthanasia or medical neglect due to financial constraints. Our veterinary clinic helps to fund the care of homeless animals at our shelter. All services are provided by local veterinarians.
Their veterinary clinic helps to fund the care of homeless animals at our shelter. All services are provided by local veterinarians for an affordable rate. This is extremely useful incase of an emergency.
