Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Aside from funding, the single thing that prevents us for saving more dogs is lack of foster homes. Our adoptions involve intensive screening and placement of potential guardians for our dogs, so our fosters can be assured that putting heart and soul into caring for one of our dogs will be rewarded with success when that dog joins its new family!

We are a tiny organization of unpaid volunteers. We use our own resources to rehabilitate and care for dogs. We gratefully accept donations and grants. Please visit our website BetterDaysRescue.org to read many of our success stories and for links to our social media.

Charting impact

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

We hope to help change the perception of fostering and adoption. We thoroughly vet our dogs and involve a trainer/behavioralist, when needed, to smooth a dog's adjustment to a new home and family. Dogs are placed on a foster-to-adopt basis, with adoption not becoming final until everyone in the situation is completely satisfied.

We do not rush to place our dogs, rather we get to know them very well. We market each dog, screen dozens of applications, and perform interviews and home visits in search of the very best match for each dog's needs. Happy adopters = Happy dogs!

Through our veterinary and carer connections, we can provide safe and enriching accommodations while dogs are prepared for their permanent new homes.

We believe that we have set (and met) a high standard for extensive vetting and superior care of our dogs, and that we offer an unrivaled, positive adoption experience.

While we have already greatly increased the number of dogs that we rescue and place each year, we want to inspire dog-lovers of the community experiencing the opportunity to contribute to this process by fostering dogs for us and donating to our cause.
