Default Starting a rescue

Well since we have the training facility here in Ontario and loads of room as we live on 3 acres. We have decided to begin a rescue. So if there is any one that knows of a dog or cat in the area that needs assistance feel free to contact me.

Its about helping those who can not help themselves.

Perhaps you can get in touch with some of the local rescues to see if they need any assistance boarding/fostering their animals...

I know Bullies in Need (you can google them as I don't have their site at the top of my head) is always looking for foster parents and extra ROOM, as is the Toronto Humane Society and other shelters. Call a few and offer them your idea... good luck and thank you

Thank you: I have been a member of the local spca for many yrs, I have been in touch with them, they have a few areas that will assist. I am going to contact the Governemnt non profit org's to see what we can get from there. Just too much work and not enough time. Thanx again

Good luck on your rescue! I think it is some of the noblest work of all...here in the States, we have to register with the Department of Agriculture, so be sure to check and make sure you are not in violation of any ordinances...I am sure there will be many organizations happy to work with you. You are an angel!

Cindr, have they given you info on 501-3c non profit applications? My concern is that you first you investigate how much time it takes to run a non-profit rescue. You currently have a boarding kennel, a training school, a grooming shop, breed dogs and you offer a franchise business opportunity to the public thru your business, that offers a potential $3000.00 day income if people get involved. Also running the program you have, teaching people to be dog trainers. This is alot. When you start taking in rescues you have to keep very accurate records, have quarantine areas seperate from your other boarders, you have to meet certain requirements. You, as a kennel owner, can take in a dog and adopt it out to the appropriate home, for just the cost of the spay/neuter, as I do from my kennel. But to aquire the non-profit status and tax deductions you're looking for to establish a rescue, is another issue. Reccommend you look at their application first.

Thanx otch1, I am investigating it fully, I do not want to get in over my head. I as well have been thinking of hiring the right individuals on the facility to run that spacific area. It is most important that it is well drawn up and run professionally. I know I have worked for many rescues in the past and these individuals, were theives in disguise. So I will work on the aspect with caution and responsibility Thanx again for you input

Congrats! I do not know of any dogs in need near you, as I live in TN, but I've always wanted to do rescue work. I'm in the middle of voulenteering at Happy Tales Humane down here. It'll mostly just be going in on the weekends, cleaning cages, photographing the animals, feeding, watering, bathing, etc. I'd LOVE to foster, but we won't have room for a while. Kudos to you though! That's awesome. Good luck!

I'm not sure how it works in Ontario Otch1 but UNFORTUNATELY, here in Alberta it is far to easy to start a rescue group.
I know too well how quickly this kind of undertaking can get out of hand. I'm involved(at no charge of course) doing behavior work with 2 such rescues here that never should have been granted the go ahead. The dogs have suffered terribly in both cases and the rescues are still taking more dogs in.
Like you said Otch1, there is so much more to this kind of "project" than some people may think. I wish it were much more difficult to start a rescue than it is.....sadly, sometimes people are better off helping already established rescues.
