The following shelters and rescues save dogs, cats, rabbits and other animals that have been abandoned or unwanted. They spay or neuter each one, give them any needed medical care, and find them good homes.
If you’re ready to add a furry buddy to your household, please don’t shop online but instead choose one of these organizations. They’re funded either by the city or through donations or fundraising.
(Because the rescues are run by volunteers and have their hands full, please don’t contact them about animals you’ve found. Contact your local city shelter for assistance, or become a member of the animal community and look for a responsible adopter.)
