section contains information on other rescues we work with regularly. There are many others we work with infrequently that
are also excellent, but we have not had the opportunity to partner with them regularly.
Local (DC Metro Area)
A great electronic clearinghouse of information for DC-area people
looking for pets, rescues looking for resources, you name it.
Mid-Atlantic Chinese Shar-Pei Rescue Organization
These people are saints in our book � they have taken in dogs when they have
no space, paid to nurse desperately ill dogs back to health and worked to help place shar-peis, amazing dogs whose ancestry
can be traced back for thousands of years.
Golden Retriever Rescue, Education, and Training, Inc.
It presents different challenges when you are placing a breed that everyone wants.
GRREAT has done this responsibly for years, so they set the "gold standard" (pun intended) as far as we are concerned.
Lab Rescue of LRCP, Inc.
Chow Rescue of Northern Virginia
Though chows look like teddy bears, they have been bred for a purpose. Underneath the
cuddly fluff lies the no-nonsense mind of a guard dog with a sense of purpose and dignity. Chow Rescue of Northern Virginia
makes sure that these dogs are well socialized and placed in the right home.
Akita Rescue of Northern Virginia
These people make sure that these magnificent dogs are healthy, well trained and a credit
to their breed. They have very strict guidelines for their fosters, and it shows.
Mid-Atlantic Samoyed Rescue
These dedicated people love Samoyeds and work non-stop to save these wonderful dogs
from neglect or abuse situations. They are true experts on the breed and really cooperate with other rescues � they
are as likeable and as easy to get along with as the dogs they rescue (though most are nowhere near as fluffy).
Beagle Rescue of Southern Maryland
We have found our paths crossing quite a bit with this organization and have always
been impressed with their dedication and the high standards they have for the dogs .
Humane Society of Morgan County, West Virginia
Though located in West Virginia, this shelter is only a few hours round trip from Montgomery
County. A proliferation of irresponsible backyard breeders in the area mean that this shelter often is in possession of rarer
breeds (e.g., shiba inus, shar-peis) and dogs that would be snapped up in a heartbeat in the Washington area (e.g., small
dogs such as poodles, Boston terriers). Their web site is not always kept up-to-date, but you can always call them to find
out � it might make all the difference.
