Every year, loyal and loving dogs turn up in shelters through no fault of their own. Many people mistakenly think that these dogs are genetically or behaviorally inferior. But that simply isn’t true. Some of the more common reasons for dogs becoming homeless include the death of a guardian, change in work schedule, new baby, need to move to a place where dogs are not allowed, and kids going off to college.


Aside from saving a life, adopting a rescue dog has many benefits. Adult dogs are already housebroken, usually have been taught basic-obedience, and understand the meaning of “no.” And you'll know your dog's adult temperament and personality. Last but not least, opening up your heart and home to an "orphan" usually results in an extremely strong relationship. That can mean a loyal, affectionate, and attentive dog for life.


An owner of a rescue Greyhound himself, one of our Course authors, Jerry Sticker, is an active advocate in the fight to stop Greyhound racing. All combined, our author and tutors have personally fostered and helped place hundreds of dogs. All of us at the CanineClub Academy believe that every pet should have a family and a forever home. To help these animals find loving homes, a portion of all proceeds is donated to Animal Shelters and Pet Rescues.


If you or someone you know is looking to add a fuzzy faced companion to your family, please consider adopting. Even if you can’t foster, do home visits, or volunteer personally, we encourage you to follow the links below and donate directly to some of organizations that are working to help homeless dogs (and cats =D ) find their forever homes.



Young At Heart Pet Rescue


Young At Heart Pet Rescue’s mission is to rescue and rehome senior dogs and cats, to educate the public on the benefits of adopting older pets and their care, and to reduce the euthanasia rate for senior pets in the state of Illinois.


Young at Heart rescues older pets from open-admission shelters where their age makes them first in line for euthanasia. It is a 100% non-profit, no-kill organization dedicated to the rescue and rehoming of senior dogs and cats. Young at Heart Pet Rescue is run by like-minded professionals who volunteer their time and resources to help save the lives of these animals.



MUTTSHACK Animal Rescue


MuttShack was formed in 2005 and operates as an independent non-profit 501(c)(3). Initially established as a free full service triage facility in the City of New Orleans in response to Hurricane Katrina, MuttShack’s primary focus has since shifted to mass shelter rescue - transporting entire shelter populations to viable metro areas such as Atlanta and New York.


In addition to disaster preparedness and response, MuttShack works closely with local shelters, rescue and humane groups and coalitions in active support of No-Kill Solutions across the U.S.



American Dog Rescue


Arthur Benjamin, founder of American Dog Rescue, is passionate about animal welfare – locally, nationally and globally. He is equally passionate about nurturing the involvement of others, as individuals or through the support of accredited nonprofits.


He has been dedicating himself to education and animal rights activism for the past three decades. Serving on the boards of several of the nation’s leading career education colleges and associations, his educational activities impact career education nationwide.



Atlanta Pet Rescue & Adoption


The Founder of Atlanta Pet Rescue, Judith Price, has been tirelessly giving her time, energy, and financial support to help homeless dogs and cats for over 15 years. In 1999, she founded a non-profit, no-kill shelter and added an annex to her home to accommodate 20-25 homeless pets. Since 1999, the organization has rescued over 9,000 dogs and cats. Her endless energy, compassion and motivation to reduce the number of homeless pets in the metro- Atlanta area has engaged the respect and following of a large group of dedicated and loyal foster families and volunteers.



Forgotten Friends of Long Island


Forgotten Friends of Long Island Animal Rescue Group’s mission is to end the cycle of misery and death caused by overpopulation, neglect and abuse. It is dedicated to the rescue of companion animals which have been in municipal shelters for an extended periodic of time. Many of the animals chosen to be cared for require extensive medical treatment.  


Forgotten Friends believes that every animal deserves to be treated with kindness and dignity, every volunteer with respect and appreciation, and every member of the public with sincere gratitude for their generosity and support.
