Welcome and Thank you for visiting! So glad you have chosen to rescue a wonderful new friend.
We hope we can find the dog you are looking for - That Fur-ever friend.
The specific purpose of this organization is dedicated to: saving dogs from other breeders, free dogs, internet breeder dogs, dogs in danger of going to shelters, any dog in need prior to them being bred more by breeders creating puppy mills and huge numbers of UN-sterilized dogs. We are trying to save the dogs prior to them or their offspring being placed into shelters. We drive wherever we need to in order to find them. We don't wait for dogs that need rescuing. We are out everyday looking for them no matter how far. People surrender the dogs to 1LDR, but in most cases we must pay the dog's re-homing fees from private owners trying to re-home a dog. We are then able to insure that the dogs are sterilized, vaccinated and chipped so they are always accounted for. After they are clean and treated, we properly re-home the dogs into responsible loving families. No dogs, not even pure breed dogs are safe from shelters. Your pure breeds are the most in danger being sold to other breeders who will buy brothers and sisters and breed them together. It is also not just the “free to a good home” dogs that are in danger. Pure breeds at some of the most at risk because what they can provide. Our ultimate goal is to sterilize, vaccinate, chip and worm all dogs in hope of stopping dogs and puppies from going to shelters.
At a minimum we want to reduce the number to insure humane treatment of the animals and reduce the number being euthanized. We specialize in:Old english sheep dogs, Rescue of any pregnant dogs and all breeds of puppies, Poodles, Shih-tzu, Cocker Spaniels, Boxers, Boston's, Pugs, German Shepherds, Labs, Golden retrievers, Bull dogs, and all hounds; Basset hounds, Dachshund, Coon hounds and all other breeds.
