HELP US BUY OUR SHELTER!

Save a Dog has the option to purchase the property where our shelter is located in Sudbury, MA and where we have been renting for the past seven years. This is a huge opportunity, not only to stay in the place we call home, but it also brings the potential for eventual expansion to save more dogs. Our elderly landlord passed away, therefore the property has to go through probate while it is listed. We have the final option to purchase this property, but we need to raise the funds quickly. While probate can often drag things out, we need to be ready! Please help us to keep the property that we have customized for our humane society. We provide several important community services that would suffer if we lose our current location. Our teen volunteer program allows high school students to receive community service credits while volunteering at the shelter. Our meals-on-wheels program helps both dogs and cats to stay in their homes regardless of an owner's financial constraints. We have a fantastic community and we are thankful for your support. We have the faith that all of our friends and supporters will rally together with very timely cash donations. All donations are tax deductible! Please donate today!

If you can help us with a larger donation and PayPal is not an option please contact us via email at saveadog@saveadog.org.

Dogs Who Need Sponsors

Trixie Trixie

Trixie is a very special girl who has been through a lot. She needs a quiet home to recover and be her beautiful senior self. She has 3 legs and came into a shelter giving birth to puppies who all died. Alone and mourning the loss of her pups, the fact that she was three-legged didn't help her to get out of the shelter. Living on donated food and the normal loss of coat with hormonal changes, she developed itchy skin and some hair loss. We do want a stay or work from home situation for her. Her first love is to be with her person. Sweet Trixie is a tripod, missing her front right leg- she is a little older so she enjoys her rest but still is full of life. WE have gotten to know her better and she is still gaining strength and we think the fewer stairs the better for her. She deserves a... (more)

Caroline Caroline

Caroline is a young mixed breed girl from WV. Her owner died which left her alone. She lived most of her days on a chain outside. It's her time to have the good life as she has had such a hard life, but doesn't hold it against humans. She deserves a nice family and a yard to sniff around in. Caroline was scheduled to come up from WV last weekend, but it was learned she was heart worm positive, so she must wait due to USDA regulations. She underwent her first treatment on 2/9 and will be staying there until she gets her 2nd treatment and is tested again. Please help donate towards her boarding and post-treatment expenses. Arrival dates are estimates only.

MEALS-ON-WHEELS FOR PETS



"When the economy is tight and resources are scarce, people sometimes are forced to make difficult decisions about caring for their pets," says Shirley Moore, President of Save A Dog. "We have seen an increase in the number of local dogs turned in due to financial hardship and want to help prevent a pet from losing their loving home because their owners are struggling with finances. Therefore, we launched a Meals-on-Wheels-for-Pets program that would benefit pet owners who are suffering financially due to limited income or job loss."

Our goal is to provide dog and cat food for the pets BEFORE their owners reach a situation that would cause relinquishment of the pet. This program is for those in our community who have lost a job or means of income. The program will include seniors who are eligible for, or typically receive, meals-on-wheels and we have reached out to the local Councils on Aging to offer our help. Many seniors are feeling the pinch of rising health care costs and most are reluctant to ask for help. These seniors are also prone to feed their own meals-on-wheels to their pets so we want to offer them a high quality pet food that will ensure their pet is getting a nutritious meal. Many seniors live alone with only their pets to keep them company. They depend upon these animals for their mental and emotional well-being (as do those who have suffered the loss of a job). Relieving these pet owners of the financial burden of pet food supports a happier, healthier environment for both the owner and their pet. This program provides a service that is not currently available in this area.

If you know of a pet owner in need, please email us at meals@saveadog.org and if you would like to make a donation to this program, please click on the link below or mail a check to Save A Dog with Meals-on-Wheels in the memo portion of the check.

Save A Dog, Inc.

Save A Dog, Inc. is a Massachusetts-based humane society whose focus is abandoned dogs. We take in local dogs of all breeds, sizes, and shapes who have become homeless for one reason or another. We work with animal shelters in MA as well as out of state. With over 8.6 million pets being euthanized each year, we try to maximize the number of dogs we can save at once, so we work with several high volume shelters and humane societies in rural parts of the south and in WV where dogs die in large numbers. Save A Dog incorporated as a 501c3 nonprofit in 1999 and we were the first dog rescue group in the Boston Metrowest area to bring in dogs from states that have an over-population problem. We have used foster homes and now have a shelter in which to house and show our rescued dogs. We try to make the best match for applicant and dog. We developed a health protocol and quarantined our dogs long before it was state-mandated.

To date we have rescued and adopted over 4,300 dogs. We will not turn down special needs dogs and gone to great lengths to save the lives of those who are truly in need. If we are going to bring in dogs from out of state, we choose a mix of adult dogs slated for euthanasia as well as adolescent dogs who were abandoned when they outgrew their cuteness. We love working with people who want to "save a dog" instead of going to a breeder or pet shop to buy a dog. With such a national crisis, we educate our community to adopt, not buy. We counsel our adopters on how to care for the new dog or pup and we offer puppy kindergarten classes as well as obedience for all our adopters. We send our rescued dogs home with an adoption contract that ensures the dog will never again end up in a shelter again. We spay and neuter the dogs prior to placement. Our dogs are up to date on vaccinations, but we don't over-vaccinate as we know that this can lead to immune deficiency problems and we will educate our adoption community about that. We use holistic care and homeopathy as our primary medical protocol. We use positive reinforcement training for our dogs and we require that adopters obedience train their dog using positive methods.

We are privately funded via donations. We charge an adoption fee, but it is not enough to cover our operating expenses, so we hold several fund raisers per year to stay afloat and keep the dog rescue work going.

If you would like to meet our rescued dogs, please fill out an application or come to one of our local Meet and Greet events, listed on the Events page. Also, if you fill out an application, you can make a private appointment to see the dogs.
