Small Dog Rescue
Because every dog deserves a home
Not every dog in need of a forever home is a mongrel. Just about every breed has an organization devoted to rescuing its own - and its "wannabes." People devoted to their breeds work for the welfare of all dogs - because they all deserve "forever homes."
As a "dog person" and co-owner of a small dog boutique. (our shop, GollyGear.com donates 10% of profits to rescue) we've become familiar with many resources available to people looking for the perfect dog for their families. If you're looking for a purebred dog, but you'd really like to adopt from rescue, you can still find the right dog.
Affenpinscher Rescue is an organization of volunteers who are dedicated to helping Affens in need. Whether it be a dog in a shelter or an affen who has found itself homeless for one reason or another, we are here to help them find new forever homes.

Italian Greyhound Rescue
IG Rescue is a service provided for Italian Greyhounds that have been abandoned at animal shelters, taken from abusive homes or surrendered to Rescue due to the death or divorce of the former owner. Occasionally, dogs are turned over to Rescue because the owner can no longer keep the dog and the dog was acquired from a source to which it cannot be returned.
IG Rescue members foster these orphans in their homes, where their health and temperament are evaluated. All dogs are taken for a veterinary check-up: vaccinations are updated, the animal is neutered/spayed and, if necessary, its teeth are cleaned. Each Italian Greyhound is evaluated so that it can be placed in a home suitable to both the dog and new owners.

In many cases we can assist with behavioral problems that might have otherwise turned into a future homeless situation.

Papillon Care and Rescue Trust (PCART) accepts purebred papillons regardless of age, health or temperament. Our job is to ensure that all members of our beloved breed are able to live out their lives in a stable, healthful and loving environment.
Each rescued papillon is treated with special care. They are evaluated by a veterinarian for common health issues, given required medical care and spayed or neutered. Our foster care system is one of our greatest assets. When our papillons are cared for in a loving home environment by experienced volunteers we are better able to evaluate temperament and special needs. Great care is taken in determining the type of "forever" home that would suit each best.

Toy Fox Terrier Rescue
There will always be a need to find good homes for Toy Fox Terriers. Not all of these dogs will be rescued from a shelter or an abusive situation. Most of the time it is simply a matter of finding a home when the present owner cannot continue to keep the dog.
Rescue is an undertaking that can only succeed with everyone's participation. Surely we all want the same thing for these little dogs that we love so much.
