Dog Charities We Like
Wine Imbiber promotes the following dog charities:
Adopt-a-Pet promotes the rescue of animals and their adoption as pets. Thank goodness for the humane society, SPCA, rescue organizations and hardworking, dedicated animal shelter volunteers! Without them, there is no telling how many more dogs would die each year. Dog rescuers scan animal shelters constantly, looking for puppies of all ages whose time at the animal shelter has almost run out due to overcrowding, and giving them a second chance before they are euthanized. They all rely on volunteers and donations to keep their efforts going. All rescue groups have a few things in common. They are made up of extremely caring, passionate volunteers who work tirelessly to save pets’ lives. There are many reasons a pet ends up in need of a home. All rescue groups deserve our most sincere gratitude for making this world a better place for animals in need! Before you buy a dog, remember that adoption is the most humane option!
Fuzzy Rescue is a Southern California–based nonprofit, no–kill animal welfare organization. Since 2005, Fuzzy Rescue has been dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, and placement of homeless animals in Southern California. By collaborating with animal shelters and other rescue groups in the community, they strive to save pets’ lives and reduce pet overpopulation. They work towards educating the general public about the advantages of adopting dogs and cats from shelters and rescue groups, and about the importance of spay and neuter. Lastly, they provide outreach to pet owners who need financial assistance for emergency veterinary care. Fuzzy Rescue has rescued, rehabilitated, and re–homed more than 500 dogs and cats.
Guardian Angels for Soldier’s Pet, is an all–volunteer public charity formed in January 2005 after learning that military service members across the country had pets that needed a caring, loving, and safe home to care for them during the pet owner’s deployment to fight the global war on terrorism, but had been unable to find someone to care for them. This left the military pet owners with only one option, which was to relinquish their beloved pets and pet ownership rights to a humane society, animal shelter, or animal rescue group never to see their pets again, know if they were placed in a new home, or ended up being euthanized. This organization supports our military service members, veterans, and their beloved pets by ensuring the pets are reunited with their owners following deployment or emergency hardship.
There are few things in life more feared than loss of independence & mobility. The Guide Dog Foundation for the Blind provides guide dogs and service dogs free of charge to people who are blind or visually impaired or who have other special needs regain their independence and mobility. They also help our veterans through their subsidiary, America’s VetDogs—The Veteran’s K–9 Corps. Guide and service dogs help people with disabilities move about safely and confidently, enabling them to reclaim the independence they had lost.

The singular mission of Noah’s Wish is to save animals during disasters with our rescue and recovery services and to mitigate the impact of disasters on animals through our educational outreach programs. Noah’s Wish came into existence in 2002, not to duplicate existing efforts to help animals during disasters, but to expand on what was already in place. Too often, efforts to help animals during life threatening situations have been gravely inadequate. They recognize that animals need and deserve an organized, consistent and professionally managed national disaster relief program. They will, otherwise, continue to pay for human indifference with their lives. How animals are managed during disasters is to implement well thought out, field tested policies and procedures that are practiced in all disasters. Relief efforts for people are managed this way and Noah’s Wish feels they should be for animals, too. For more information, visit their website or call (916) 939–9474.
