Welcome to our rescue part. We have helped about 50 dogs per year on average. We donate for medical care, transport, neuters, and basics like food. We are not a rescue, we simply help rescues and dogs in need. Dogs that are abandoned in shelters, on the street, or dogs needing rescue.
In addition I have a soft spot for misunderstood large breeds like bullies and rottweilers. They are the breeds that are killed the most in animal shelters, and primarily because people are afraid of them or do not have the tools to help them. Recently I have begun coaching fosters and new adopters on how to better care for their new dog during decompression. I realize this is an area where I can have a major impact with my behavioral experience background and education. There are statistics that show that if a foster or adopter gets help before things get out of hand, that dog has higher chances of keeping its home.
In my work with the Animal Advisory Committee, I also have developed initiatives to support pet programs for further education in Prince William Countyand neutering.
All 9 dogs were saved from certain death on September 2023 at Corpus Christi Animal Services, a large donation of $1,600 towards two partner rescues was key to provide care for them. These dogs are all under 3 years old and did not need to die. Thanks Shelteramutt and Mr. K's Rescue in Texas. They now have a chance to have a great life.
BEAR: From Texas to Virginia
Bear had been ran over by a car in Houston and left for dead. We collaborated with our friends from Mr K's Rescue and got Bear to safety, he had to have a paw amputation and many weeks of recovery before finding his home in Virginia. One of the most rewarding things is to see an unwanted dog loved for the first time. Since I stepped out of operational rescue I have been focusing more energy in visiting homes with adopted dogs and working with them in behavior so they can be successful in their new homes.

Since 2017 we have helped save an average of 50 dogs per year. It has been my goal as an ethical vegan (for the animals) to save as many dogs as possible using my experience especially with misunderstood large dogs. Sadly in the last year I witnessed too much sorrow and despair, too much to bear. The loss of several adoptable dogs to a broken system made it clear to me that I needed to take a step back. I decided to focus my energies in behavioral modification training to be able to save the dogs before they end in the shelter. I am no longer doing all of the operational rescue as before. (visiting dogs, transporting, dealing with shelters, reviewing applications, dealing with medical, veterinarians, pickups, fosters, adopters) You may have noticed I have been taking several classes and academies, you have seen me broadening Kaiser's portfolio to help scared dogs. Fear is a powerful emotion and it can destroy a dog's life. I am still conducting free behavioral evaluations for dogs that need help to get out of the shelter, dogs that are struggling at home, and continuing to advocate in the local Board in Prince William County, and Virginia senate. As always, we continue to support donating to 501c3 rescues that save dogs especially bully breeds and senior dogs.
Thank you for helping us save so many dogs. And if you know of a dog in trouble, I am always here to help before they lose their home.
