S.A.D. is an all-volunteer 501c3 nonprofit organization with a mission to serve the communities of Northern Indiana by fostering and supporting healthy, positive relationships between people and companion animals. S.A.D. rehomes companion pets into safe, healthy, lifelong homes; serves as an educational and counseling resource; and works to reduce pet overpopulation.
We work closely with local shelters to save as many death row animals as possible. Some shelters have very short “hold” times. This could mean that your lost pet may have just a few days to live if not saved by a rescue. SIX to EIGHT MILLION animals enter U.S. Shelters each year. 2.7 million dogs and cats are euthanized. ONE INNOCENT ANIMAL DIES EVERY 11 seconds! Many were beloved pets. Some never knew love at all. Some are very sick and certainly do not deserve to suffer. Without the help of NO KILL rescues, there is no hope…no tomorrow. It is through your kindness that we may continue our mission to save the innocent who have no voice. Your donations are urgently needed. Please join our mission to save these innocent animals and help reach our goal of no animal left behind. No donation is too small. ALL are life saving.
We can not rescue without a foster in place. If you are interested in finding out more about fostering please go to our FOSTER PAGE
Save a Dog Rescue is comprised of a small group of volunteers dedicated to saving the lives of Animals. We are NOT paid a salary. 100% of every donation we receive goes towards the ongoing care and veterinarian bills which we incur with every rescue.
