Event is Rain or Shine!
On March 7th, 2015, our organization will be hosting our fifth annual "Dinner for the Doggies". This event is the biggest fundraiser of the year and includes a dinner and gift auction. All profits from this event go directly to our organization and the caring of our dogs including transport, medical care, and fostering. Not a single dollar of your donations go towards salaries!
Your ticket includes three course dinner (vegetarian option available upon request ), 3 hour beer and wine host paid bar (6pm-9pm), admission to the gift auction, starter pack of tickets and a door prize ticket.
Your generosity will help us continue to move closer to our goal of helping save the lives of countless dogs. Thank you for your anticipated support!
American Rescue Dog
Exciting news! American Rescue Dog has found a new home! Our new space will help us rescue and rehabilitate more animals than ever. Before we can begin working in our rehabilitation center, some construction must be completed so we can make this space perfect for the dogs. We desperately need donations to purchase materials and complete this work. Once this is done, our goal of rescuing and re-homing more dogs will become reality. We are reaching out to all our supporters for assistance…we need your help to complete this goal! Please consider donating! Items needed are listed below with links! Please feel free to email or message us for more details.

It is with great appreciation that we at American Rescue Dog write to thank you for your generous support to our organization. Your participation at our 4th annual Dinner for the Doggies gift auction was very much the centerpiece of our fundraising. Your generous contributions to our fundraiser helped us exceed our expectations from previous years and make our event a rousing success. We cannot fully express our appreciation for your commitment to our organization. This year with your help we were able to raise almost $15,000 for the doggies!
