One of the main problems we, as well as other rescue organizations, face is a lack of fosters for the number of dogs looking to come into our rescue.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our main goal is saving the lives of and finding homes for Rottweilers throughout fourteen southern states of the U.S., including Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia.

We have a social media strategy which we use to obtain new fosters as well as donations for dogs coming into our rescue. We also do various fun fundraisers throughout the year to obtain funds which go towards the medical care of our Rottweilers. We also utilize our website as well as other pet adoption websites and social media to promote our dogs available for adoption.

We have been very capable of meeting our goals of obtaining new fosters as well as funds that go towards the care and medical expenses of our rescued Rottweilers. Finding new homes and families for our rescued Rottweilers is our ultimate goal which we have become very good at over the years.

In 2019 we took a total of 65 Rottweilers in to our rescue. A few of them had very high medical expenses. We met our challenge of raising funds through various fundraisers throughout the year, including our yearly Spring Auction, Christmas Auction, T-Shirt and Calendar fundraisers.

We plan on taking in at least another 60- 80 Rottweilers in 2020 as ours get adopted to their forever families.

We found homes for 59 of our rescued Rottweilers in 2019.
