Somerset, New Jersey
Rogers' Rescues,Inc. is an all
volunteer organization devoted to rescuing
adoptable dogs from high-kill shelters and finding them
lovable forever homes. We
currently adopt dogs out to New Jersey and
Eastern Pennsylvania. The group was founded in June of 2002 and
to date (10/03) has saved over
What we do:
We remove dogs from high kill shelters and
place them into permanent,
loving homes. In many cases the dogs are at high risk of
being "put down" or
may already be scheduled. There are several out of
state shelters that we routinely "pull" dogs from.
We contact the shelters and put a
"hold" on the largest number of dogs
we can possibly foster. Once the dogs are on hold, we can
schedule a transport.
Transports are accomplished through the collective
efforts of rescue groups, shelters and individuals active
in dog rescue. The
coordination of transports can be tricky as they require
the cooperation of many people. Once the dogs arrive they
go immediately into the care
of our volunteers where they are fostered
until we can find them them suitable homes.
We are a VIRTUAL SHELTER, we have no
facility or kennel. All of the adoptable
pets are currently living in the homes of our volunteers
where they're being loved and
treated as members of the family.
While in foster care the rescued dogs are
vetted, house trained, evaluated,
socialized and if need be, obedience trained. When
you adopt a dog from Rogers' Rescues, you are preventing the
death of a dog in a very
direct way. It's as if you went to the shelter
yourself and rescued a dog from certain death. When one of
our rescued dogs is adopted,
the space and resources required to care
for that dog are freed up and we are able to rescue another
one. In addition to that, when
you adopt a dog from Rogers' Rescues there
are no surprises. The dog has been evaluated, socialized,
tested for aggressive
behavior, vetted, is flea and parasite free, clean,
healthy, altered and well on their way to being, if not
completely, house trained.
We are a highly successful
rescue and are quickly gaining momentum.
In most cases we have a turnaround time of
two weeks or less. That allows
us to do large shelter pulls two or more times a month and
the more volunteers we have,
the larger the pulls.
We are dedicated to making a difference
and dream of the day when animals
are no longer sentenced to death simply because no one loved
