Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Rescue, Rehabilitate and Rehome Unwanted Companion Animals

We rescue abused, neglected and abandoned dogs from shelters from New England to Florida. We take the worst abuse, neglect and medical cases. We provide the necessary medical and other rehabilitative treatment and place the dogs in foster homes where they can continue recovering. Once the dogs are ready for a permanent family, we interview and select the most appropriate home for them.

Population(s) Served

Through our due diligence and research in the field of animal rescue, we've been able to identify a specific need within the community, and that is the need for education for adoptions vs buying. Rescue Dogs Rock NYC “Adopt Don’t Shop” Campaign is centered around the belief that you don’t have to buy a dog from a breeder to have a good family pet. So often we are presented with questions regarding adoptions vs buying, the choices we make, the money we spend, how we rely on donations to fund our rescue and the particular medical cases that we choose to save. Promoting spay and neuter, empathy, compassion, love and a mindful approach to animal rescue, we want to use this campaign to educate the public on the availability of so many healthy and deserving pets through shelters and rescues. Through this innovative campaign, we hope to encourage people to adopt rather than shop when they go looking for their next family pet. We also want to educate the public on how we can take responsibility on how to properly treat animals, to seriously think through the commitment of a pet inherent with their lifestyle, and to reconsider their preconceived notions about specific breeds. With the campaign's expected exposure, we hope to reach a wider audience of supporter and donors where we can raise awareness and more funds to be able to save even more animals in need.

Charting impact

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

Rescue Dogs Rock, Inc. aims to imagine a world without homeless dogs. We know we cannot rescue them all but our goal is to improve the quality of life for as many dogs as possible.

In order do achieve our goals, we have to: 1. Commit to rescuing, rehabilitating and rehoming abandoned and abused dogs; 2. Educate the public on the proper ways to respect dogs so they won’t be abused, neglected or abandoned; 3. Encourage spay/neuter and vaccination to prevent the underlying causes of overpopulation and disease circulation; 4. Work within the proper channels to attract national attention to the problem of abandoned and abused dogs in the United States.

We can’t do this all by ourselves so we hope to get the the public's attention to this crisis as we aim to help change policies and perceptions. Through our ever-growing social media presence, we hope to educate and raise awareness on the plight of animal abuse and the causes of shelter overpopulation. To help reduce the number of stray dogs, we aim to rescue 800 (plus) dogs a year and give them a second chance at life through placement in loving foster or forever homes. We will do it whatever it takes to make it happen!

Strategies for Saving Dogs:
* Use social media, adoption events and other online resources to showcase adoptable dogs for adoption or foster
* Partner with veterinary practices to provide discounted critical medical and behavioral care
* Become a part of a community by partnering with and hosting events in the communities that we are based in
* Establish our engagement with the public through fundraising events, foodie events, sporting events, volunteer programs and community outreach
* Generate fundraising to continue our rescue operations

Strategies for Educating the Public:
* Use our social media presence to market and educate the public
* Create an education program to teach children on how to properly respect and care for dogs
* Offer training and enrichment programs to educate the public on behavior and proper handling.
* Expand our adoption and foster base network by educating the community on how crucial our network is as part of the functioning life cycle of a rescue

Our organization rescues dogs from 20 states and adopt/foster to 13 states. The team is made up of well-connected local residents who know when and where to find a dog in need. The team is also made up of influencers, professionals, advocates, and educators. We continue to build a robust adoption/fostering community, volunteer network, streamlined infrastructure, which in turn streamlines our operations to increase our capacity to rescue more dogs.

Our relationship with network veterinary practices in our network allows us to quickly care for and rehabilitate the dogs in a local setting. We are equipped to handle the most critical, abused and traumatized animals with high success save rates.

We also continuously grow our fundraising efforts to support this vital rescue work.

In our 4 years of existence, Rescue Dogs Rock, Inc has rescued almost 2,500 dogs. We have expanded our network to rescue dogs from 20 states and adopt/foster to 13 states.


What’s Next in 2019:
* Create the Adoption Road Show Series of Events to partner with organizations, local businesses and veterinary practices in hope to adopt and foster out our dogs
* Upcoming plan to launch a monthly video series to increase the awareness of our mission
* Launched our “Sponsorship Club” to get people involved with our rescue on a more personal level
* Increase our social media presence engagement with great branding and marketing content
