We have several rescues ( dogs & cats ) that come to us shut down and very scared. Most do not know the good side of humans and we want to make it a priority at ATTR to work with them. We have had success in getting the rescues to come around and warm up to people but lately it seems we are getting more and more and we just do not have the resources or time in the day to give them all the attention they need and deserve. If you have any spare time that you come up to the adoption centers, spend time with the rescue and our trainers we feel we can reach more rescues and help them sooner. We are also willing to work with you in your homes. Some of these rescues are just to scared in our boarding environment and would do better in a home environment. We will work with you and your family on ways to get the rescues to come out of their shells and build confidence. Then you can bring them into the stores weekly so that they are used to the environment for adoption days. If you can help us fill out a volunteer or foster application. We will then work with you to find out which dog or cat you may be able to help the most. Please share our need with all your friends. We are always looking for foster homes and volunteers to work the rescues in our adoption centers. The applications are in the Get Involved Section on the website.
Teddy & Lucy came to us scarred and shut down in the beginning. We got them into a foster home and later then adopted into a home. We recently had an awesome update that they are thriving! Please help us so we can continue to save more lives.
