City Pet Rescue is an all-breed rescue group that was established by a core group of veteran animal rescuers in February 2004. The founders and volunteers of City Pet Rescue collectively
bring many years of experience to our rescue mission.
City Pet Rescue is an all-volunteer organization dedicated mainly to:
* rescuing dogs and cats from local kill shelters before they can be euthanized
* placing them in secure, loving homes
* promoting spaying and neutering as vital to solving the problem of unwanted and abandoned pets
* recruiting, cultivating and empowering volunteers to achieve these goals.
In addition, City Pet Rescue is committed to promoting the welfare of all companion animals through the development of programs that ensure the best match between adopter and pet; educate adopters about health, safety and behavioral issues; and strive to minimize animal "returns" by addressing the reasons behind those returns.
