Mission

Our mission is to rescue dogs from overcrowded and high-kill shelters, and place them in loving homes. We also strive to educate the public on responsible pet ownership, and the importance of spay/neuter so that one day there will no longer be adoptable dogs euthanized by the thousands in our shelters. We primarily serve animals in the state of Idaho, Utah, California and Louisiana. We are located in the Boise, ID area.

Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The problem we are addressing is the killing of dogs in our animal shelters because of a lack of resources at the shelter to address issues of capacity, medical care, and training issues. These dogs need a second chance and our program is designed to give them that.

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

Foster Care in Loving Homes

The dogs coming into the care of Take Me Home Dog Rescue, Inc are placed in temporary homes of volunteer foster families. This provides the opportunity to prepare the dog for life in his/her forever home. Support is provided for medical care, training, supplies and food.
Success will be measured by the number of dogs that are saved and adopted by a responsible pet owner.
We serve our local communities.

Population(s) Served
Adults

Dogs that come into rescue with emotional problems such as fear, lack of confidence, or generally untrained, are placed in a rehabilitation program. We work closely with a dog behaviorist, and two general dog trainers to work with the dogs until they are adoptable.

Population(s) Served
Adults

Rescued dogs are assessed to determine the best type of home that would fit them. Decisions on selecting the adopter is based on the best fit to meet the dog's need and not on the first application received.

Population(s) Served

Charting impact

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

Each rescued dog will be assessed to determine it's specific needs. Our goal for each dog is to address those needs and provide a safe and loving environment until it is placed in it's forever home.

We establish relationships with the high kill shelters so they contact us when they have a dog at risk.
We constantly promote the need for foster homes to increase involvment of our community. We provide all the basic needs for the dog and the responsibility of the foster home is to provide a loving environment, excercise and a safe home.
We establish good working relationships with dog trainers to assist dogs who have behavioral issues.
When we receive a dog, the first steps are to do a health assessment and address any issues.

The Board of DIrectors is made up of individuals who each bring a needed expertise that contributes to meeting our goals.
The organization has many years of experience in the animal rescue world and understands the issues and challenges.

We have rescued and placed over 200 dogs since we started in 2017. We are financially sound and are committed to continuing our efforts. As we build our reputation we will continue to grow the number of foster homes. Foster homes is the only real limitation to the number of dogs we can rescue. We will continue to expand our social media presence.
