Southern Rescue Team

What makes a great rescue?  Great people!  And when rescuing out of state it’s even more crucial that you know and trust who you’re rescuing with!  Here in Mass, Julie will go out and temperament test local dogs that need rescue.  Down south, this is done by our Southern rescue team!

We don’t rescue by looks or age or breed.  We rescue by temperament.  We rescue family friendly dogs that we trust to have in our homes with our kids and our dogs.  We wouldn’t take a dog into our homes that we believe would pose a risk to our families and we wouldn’t ask you to either.  We want to help find you find the Pawfect pup!
