Need'um Rescue

Need'um Rescue Need'um Rescue pulls the majority of our shelter dogs from high kill shelters in TX and transport up to MD/VA for adoption!.
(26)

ABOUT NEED'UM RESCUE: Need'um Rescue is foster based and most of our dogs originate from shelters out of state; the majority of our dogs come from high kill shelters in Texas, especially San Antonio, as they have been known to euthanize up to/over 20 dogs a day. The ones we are a blessing to save are then properly vetted and transported up to Virginia to be adopted into loving homes. We do require a homecheck and there is an adoption fee for our dogs! VETTING: Every dog in this rescue's care is temperament tested, heartworm tested, fixed, up to date on shots, as well as microchipped before transport. Each dog comes with their own paperwork and all their medical records, including a health certificate stating that the dog has been cleared by a vet and is qualified to cross state lines. DONATIONS: Unfortunately, Need'um Rescue is NOT a 501c3 just yet and therefore, everything this rescue does for these beautiful animals is out of pocket and without tax exemption. Boarding, transport, shelter adoption fees, medical bills, dog supplies (bowls, crates, collars, toys, leashes), etc and everything else needed for these dogs is all incredibly costly, therefore donations are very much appreciated!!! I will be posting a GoFundMe shortly, but if you'd like to donate to our dogs now, the PayPal account is [email protected]. If you leave leave your name in the comment box, I will make sure to thank personally for your donation and let you know which rescue dog your donation will be helping!! You can also call in pledges directly to the boarding or medical facilities if you feel more comfortable! We also accept donations of old dog items you arent using anymore, such as blankets, toys, doggy clothes, leashes, bowls, crates, etc...ANYTHING that you feel could be helpful in making these dogs feel more at home. FOSTERING: As I have stated above, Needham Rescue is completely foster based. Without temporary places for these dogs to go, millions of dogs a year never make it out of the shelters alive. Please consider opening your home for 2-3 weeks to one of our rescue dogs; the more fosters we find, the more lives we can save!! This rescue does provide a crate, bowls, and a leash to borrow during their temporary stay with you, however foster families are asked to provide their own food to cut costs. TRANSPORTING: We love our transporters!!! Many of our dogs need to catch a ride, whether it be to adoption events, vet visits, return trips to their fosters! Please let me know if you are interested in helping our pups get from one destination to another! Feel free to ask me any questions or contact me if you are interested in donating or becoming a foster! I can help you find a dog that's best suited for your families needs! Thank you again for your time!!

Mount Airy - MD

Please share!

UPDATE: Filled! Thank you

Former Texas shelter dog Amelia is looking for a new foster starting today for a few weeks. She is miserable because she doesn’t want to be separate from humans anymore and is looking for a foster who can either keep her strictly separate for now or at least until she warms up. Unfortunately one of the dogs in our home doesn’t like her and she continues to cry because she hates being alone.

Amelia is amazing with children and good with cats. She LOVES walks and hikes or cuddling on the couch. She is potty trained and house trained!!

A crate, bowls, leash, and bedding, comes with her for her stay!! If you’d like to just do a week trial to get your feet wet, that’s great too!

Our job is to rescue, but we truly can’t do it without the help of fosters. This is a potential Save the Tails, Inc dog, so please feel free to contact them should you be interested in fostering OR adopting.

This is a great, great rescue. I would absolutely recommend fostering for them. They are looking for fosters in the Northern VA.

Anyone feel like assisting in saving a life?

UPDATE 2/14/20: Foster found! Thank you.

FOSTER STILL NEEDED! URGENT! His time is nearly up at the shelter! ATTENTION LOUDOUNERS! THIS DOG NEEDS OUR HELP!

Meet Sweet Roger. This fellow has been waiting at an isolated shelter for 4 months and his time there is nearly up!!!

He will be euthanized at the shelter if we don’t find a foster! We can’t pull him unless we have someone local to temporarily take him in.

Can YOU FOSTER him?

This sweet smiley boy is a 2 year, 60 lb. male staffy mix who previously lived with small dogs and cats. He was housebroken and will learn again quickly. As always, we will do proper introductions.

Ideally he should go to a pet free home just for now so he can decompress from his 4 month shelter stay. Roger will be so grateful to you if you just give him a chance.

Fostering for Save the Tails is free, we pay for the dog’s medical and food, we even loan you a crate.

You will be instrumental in saving this boy’s life.

Adoption Option Dog Rescue, Inc.

UPDATE: 144,826 people reached; 362 comments; 1,300 shares . . . 1 adoption applicant (who was still interested the day after applying but who has 3 small children, so she's saving a dog we feel is wonderful with small children), 2 long term foster applicants on the east coast (another 1 in Illinois but it is very hard for a rescue to have a foster in a place where we have no vets, no trainers, and no established method to search for adopters), 1 foster offer from someone who rents in a place with a breed ban and a weight limit, 1 short term foster who helped Ariella, 1 person who cannot foster but who transported Ariella (and is helping transport the other dog being saved), 1 facility willing to train a foster at no charge, and 1 trainer who takes the dog, brings him/her into their home, and intensely trains and rehabilitates at no cost to a rescue. Counting the individuals who applied to help, including the people who are willing but whose situations aren't a good fit, that means that 0.006% of the people who read this post offered to help. .006%!?!? THIS is why rescues are desperate. We NEVER want to give up on a dog, but a foster-based rescue is only as good as its fosters, and the statistics show just how difficult it is to find people who are willing to take action. We can board a dog and we will beg for pledges to help us do so. However, sometimes boarding makes the animal so stressed and miserable that his/her quality of life declines so rapidly. That's not our goal. Some people may not know, but "no kill" shelters only need a 90% live release rate. So those "no kill" places may still very well kill 10% of their animals. It may be because animals are ill. But it also may be because they have no quality of life living in a kennel. It may be that the shelter environment stresses them out so much they appear aggressive. Regardless, the only way to save these animals and give them the opportunities to live is to FOSTER and ADOPT. THANK YOU to everyone who read, shared, prayed, and helped. THANK YOU to our current fosters, drivers, cooperating vets, willing trainers, etc. We couldn't do anything without you!! We know we're not alone in our struggles. But sadly this is why we have to limit the number of more challenging cases we undertake. We want to save them all, but we are all individuals with paying jobs, families, our own pets, and more. Every Ariella deserves a foster, and every dog INCLUDING ARIELLA, deserves a home. If you thought about adopting but didn't apply because it seemed like so many other people were ahead of you, please reconsider and SUBMIT AN ADOPTION APPLICATION! If you want to save another dog like Ariella, PLEASE SUBMIT A FOSTER OR ADOPTION APPLICATION; offer to transport, and educate others about rescue. We promise to keep trying, to give up sleep, to take the heat from people who don't understand, to keep saving the ones we can, but 4,000 animals die EVERY DAY in the United States. Collectively, we have the power to do SO much better.

UPDATE: 1/21 - We are still waiting for a return call and possibly an application, but we definitely have a long-term foster lined up if needed! We will have a final update once everything is confirmed. Thank you!

Ariella has been failed by so many people in her life and now she is out of options. She was rescued from a high-kill shelter in NC over the summer, emaciated and having been confined so long that her teeth were worn down to nubs from trying to escape. We have one week to find her a foster or adopter (until 2/1) before a very difficult decision has to be made. Because of past trauma, Ariella needs a home where she is an only pet. To work on her dog reactivity and to assist with her transition to a new home, training will be provided by the rescue.

Currently located in Baltimore, MD, but transport can be arranged. Apply to foster Ariella at: http://adoptionoptiondogrescueinc.org/#2820297

Need’um Rescue is closed for intake & transport for the next few months or until further notice.
Thank you everyone.

Update: Foster found! This girl is looking for her forever home and she really is an amazing dog!

Urgent Foster or Potential Adopter Needed
Frederick MD/Nova Area
PLEAsE SHaRE!!!!

UPDATE: Still looking for a place to stay! Please continue to share!!!

Patti (her name can be changed!), a San Antonio rescue dog, is looking for a foster now that she’s up north.

This lab/shepherd mix is truly incredible. She’s a sweetheart to all humans big and small and extremely gentle with children. She’s great with other dogs, but we are unsure about cats. Patti loves long walks and car rides. She is ready to cuddle up on the couch or run around the yard to play. She is ALWAYS excited to be with you!!! She is housetrained, pottytrained, and crate trained. This goofy girl is not a barker at all, but she does like to bark at recliners until the foot rest “magically” opens for her sleeping pleasure.

Up to date on shots and spay. Microchipped. Heartworm and fecal tested.

Please let us know if you’re interested in fostering this adorable girl. Crate, leash, etc come with her to borrow during her stay! We require that all adopters foster our dogs before making a lifetime commitment!

UPDATE:FOsTER Found!!!!
Thank you so much!!!

Please share! Maryland/Nova Area!!!
Support our troops!!!
Please... these men and women fight to keep us safe. They don’t have to lose those they love to do that for us. Please open your home for a service member’s animal!!

This is Sasha, everyone. Sasha isn’t like most dogs we post on the Need’um Rescue page; Sasha’s human is a military serviceman who is currently deployed overseas in Iraq until November.

Unfortunately, her foster home isn’t working out because her foster owns a cat and that doesn’t sit too well with Sasha. Dogs on Deployment is desperately seeking a foster home without any animals until her human comes home. She can get a little excited, so slightly older kids might be best, so they don’t get knocked over.

Sasha is housebroken, potty trained, crate trained, and muzzle trained. She’s such a sweetheart... she just needs a little help!

Please share and spread the word as quickly as you can. Unfortunately she’s had multiple options fall through and she needs to find a foster home quickly!

Please contact us if you’re interested!!! Support our military!!!!!

Please share- Funds needed desperately!!!!!! 😞

Need’um Rescue and Angel want to thank everyone who helped raise $565 towards her vet bill as well as those who shared and followed her story, from the bottom of their hearts. She fought like Hell to be here with us, but in the end Parvo is a deadly virus and it doesn’t care who it takes from us, no matter how much they are loved and needed by their humans.

Unfortunately, being as small as we are, we weren’t anticipating her vet care (or even for the bills to be so high) and it has near crippled us. All together, Angels vet care was a total of $2,501.40. After a 10% rescue discount was provided at one of the vets and donations were given in, Need’um Rescue is still looking at $1,220 bill for VCA Oso Creek alone and we are now asking for help to stay afloat.

If you would like to donate to us in honor of Angel Lady Bird, please choose one of the following:

🐾 Rescue PayPal: [email protected]
(Please press “Friends and Family” so PayPal won’t take a percentage of you donation)
🐾 Rescue Venmo: NeedumRescue
Or
🐾 Call in donations to VCA OSO Creek toward Angel’s bill. She is still under Need’um Rescue.

Please know that we never take your donations lightly. Without our donors and those who network our dog for us (as well as our fosters, transporters, and adopters), we would be absolutely nothing. Even if you just share, it means everything to us. We can’t thank our community enough.

As for Angel, we tried our hardest sweetheart. We’re so sorry beautiful girl . Fly free sweetheart.

Joel Williams $20 ❤️
Sarah Coleman $25 ❤️

Last and Final update: Two hours ago, Sadie and I got a call from the vets office. We had been planning on moving her to ECP, but the vet told us that there was no way she would be able to survive the trip. The vet did all they could, but unfortunately Angel was suffering and wasn’t going to be able to hold on much longer. Sadie went to be with her during her final moments, as Patience and the children told her it was okay and to go be with God in the clouds and sang to her. There wasn’t a dry eye in the room. This beautiful girl left this world loved and now she can rest.

We are going to ask Connie Bowen if Angel can have a spot on her next transport to Idaho, so she can finally be reunited with her family. Forever.

Thank you all so much for those who donated towards Angel today. Your donations went directly toward trying to save this beautiful girls life. I’m sorry this isn’t the happy ending we so desperately wanted.

Angel, we love you. You were such a good girl... we’ll see you one day again. 🐶🌈☁️

UPDATE ON ANGEL (please see prior post for previous updates!):

It’s been a long few days. We have been in contact with OSO vet hospital as much as possible, but Angel is growing weaker and the vet bill for sweet service dog “Angel Lady Bird” (as her humans call her) is quickly skyrocketing. Parvo is not an easy fix and there is no cure for it.... she has to fight through, which she can only do with the constant proper care and time. Unfortunately, we will soon be unable to pay for anymore treatment without the help of donations. We’d do anything to save this beautiful girl, but without donators, it might not be enough.

Angel’s foster Sadie and her mother went to visit her today at the vet hospital. They desperately wanted to cuddle her and tell her how much her kids missed her, but unfortunately the staff wouldnt allowed them to get near her. She’s extremely weak she probably didn’t even know they were there, so she just continues to lay in her kennel alone.😔

Angel’s mom Patience calls me from Idaho (they just relocated from TX after being in a DV shelter for over a month) every few hours for updates. The kids miss Angel terribly and are making her get well soon cards. Angel’s little 4 year old boy Tristian (who is autistic; she’s his service dog and best friend in the whole world) asked me to “please make Angel get better” in a pleading voice that made my heart shatter into a million pieces. This dog is more than just another rescue to me. She’s incredibly needed and so loved by her entire family.

I wish I had better news for you all. I wish I could say that one day, she’ll join her mom and three kids in Idaho as planned, but I can’t. I can’t promise that... not without help.

All I can do is beg for assistance to get her the best care she so desperately needs, so that she can defeat this horrible virus. I am going to repost pictures of the estimates again....Her glucose level is currently at 23 (it should be in the 80s or higher), her fever spiked to 103.5 today, she’s been pooping bloody diharrea, won’t keep fluids down, and can barely lift her head. We approved some more tests, but we are currently estimated at $4,000+ for a five day quarantine. We know we don’t have close to that much and again, won’t be able to help her anymore soon. We did however, get a feeding tube inserted for her, to help keep her food down. I will figure out a way to pay for that if I have to give up my spleen.

Right now, this is all the information we have available. Promise to give more as soon as it comes in. Below is options for sending donations. I will post all pledges/donations below...I can’t thank you enough for those who have already pledged and donated.

PayPal: [email protected]
(Please use the “Friends and Family” button, so all of your donation goes to Angel)
Venmo: NeedumRescue
You can also call in a donation between 10am-8pm TX time at VCA OSO vet hospital (I placed the information in the pictures. Please make sure you let me know if you send in a donation!)

Angel and her family thank you so much for sharing her story and trying to get her well. She wants desperately to see her family again... so hope with all of your help, we can make that happen.

🆘🆘 Newest UPDATE: PLEASE SHARE https://www.facebook.com/921356761282098/posts/2673718092712614/

UPDATE (1/3, 6:30 est) Angel is not doing well at all. Unfortunately, we can no longer afford the vet facility Angel is currently at, so we have to move her to another facility. Please continue to share our girl... the amount of tests, procedures we can do is based on the amount of funds we have. She deserves to live and her kids are waiting for her. Please help us save this beautiful girls life!!!”

UPDATE (1/3): Angel is still fighting. We are so thankful for this. However, we are in serious trouble financially. Last night, five days was estimated to be $4,000+ (estimates added below). I begged them to give me a 24 hour estimate so we could see how she was in the morning, which was between $700-900 (and I had to pay upfront). I am now close to $1,000 for her care just for one day... Unfortunately, we cant save her without the proper medical care and these children are counting on is. PLEASE share this post. We need help.

NEWEST EMERGENCY UPDATE (1/2): Angel has begun pooping blood all over the floor and won’t get up. She is being rushed to the only 24 hour vet in Corpus, who can monitor and give her fluids overnight. They have certain hours where you can donate funds and ANY help would be appreciated, as I’m told this facility is unbelievable expensive. We will be getting an estimate soon, but it’s looking to be $3,000 and we’re panicked at this point.

Angel will be at: VCA Oso Creek Animal Hospital & Emergency Center

EMERGENCY UPDATE (1/2): Took Angel to Baldwin, where Angel tested positive for PARVO. The vet thinks she is on day 3 and that she will be much worse tomorrow. Her gums are pale and she’s incredibly lethargic. The vet suggested she go back to the fosters, but her foster Sadie has other pets (including a small kitten without shots) and her house is now completely contaminated. We don’t have connections in Corpus or any knowledge as to what 24 hr clinic to go to that would give Angel her best chance at surviving. We do know we are going to need funds. I promised her three little children over the phone that they could trust me. I promised I’d bring their beloved dog to Idaho after they were begging our transporter to please give them back their dog. We cannot lose Angel. I won’t let this be the last time these children see their dog. Please help us!!! 🚨🚨🚨🚨

FIRST UPDATE ON SERVICE DOG ANGEL:

So good news and bad news.

Good news: Angel’s family has left Texas and arrived safely in Idaho!! They are currently waiting for her!! Angel leaves on a transport on the 6th with Connie Baird Bowen (who is a Godsend) and is helping this family get their service dog in training to them free of charge.

Now for the bad news...Angel is not feeling well. Her foster Sadie has been trying everything to make her feel better, but unfortunately, Angel hasn’t been eating or drinking very much for the past two days. She has torn up the mat in her crate and although we don’t think she has ingested any of it, she continues to have watery diarrhea and is now throwing up all over herself. We can tell if this is severe stress or she is actually sick... all she wants to do is hide in a corner of the house.

Whatever the case, we are rushing her to a vet right now, but we’re going to need funds. Please, if you pledged toward our girl, now would be the time to send it in. We will be posting her vet bill as soon as we get it.

Angel is depressed, possibly sick, and needs to be on that transport on the 6th. Her family needs her, just as much as she needs them.

Can you help her? Sharing would greatly help!

I will post your name and donation!!! If you feel more comfortable giving directly to a vet, we’ll have a name and number available as soon as we can find one to take care of her overnight!

Our Story

ABOUT NEED'UM RESCUE: Need'um Rescue is foster based and most of our dogs originate from shelters out of state; the majority of our dogs come from high kill shelters in Texas, especially San Antonio, as they have been known to euthanize up to/over 20 dogs a day. The ones we are a blessing to save are then properly vetted and transported up to Maryland/Virginia to be adopted into loving homes. We do require a homecheck and there is an adoption fee for our dogs. VETTING: Every dog in this rescue's care is temperament tested, fecal/heartworm tested, fixed, up to date on shots (distemper/parvo, rabies, and bordatella), as well as microchipped before transport. Each dog comes with their prior paperwork and all their medical records, including a health certificate stating that the dog has been cleared by a vet to cross state lines.

DONATIONS: Unfortunately, Need'um Rescue is NOT a 501c3 just yet and therefore, everything this rescue does for these beautiful animals is out of pocket and without tax exemption. Boarding, transport, shelter adoption fees, medical bills, dog supplies (bowls, crates, collars, toys, leashes), etc and everything else needed for these dogs is all incredibly costly, therefore donations are very much appreciated!!! I will be posting a GoFundMe shortly, but if you'd like to donate to our dogs now, the PayPal account is [email protected] or [email protected]. If you leave your name in the comment box, I will make sure to thank personally for your donation and let you know which rescue dog your donation will be helping. You can also call in pledges directly to the boarding or medical facilities if you feel more comfortable. (Both PayPals will pop up as Taylor Studner, which is my maiden name.) We also accept donations of old dog items you arent using anymore, such as blankets, toys, doggy clothes, leashes, bowls, crates, etc...ANYTHING that you feel could be helpful in making these dogs feel more at home. FOSTERING: As I have stated above, Needum Rescue is completely foster based. Without temporary places for these dogs to go, millions of dogs a year never make it out of the shelters alive. Please consider opening your home for 2-3 weeks to one of our rescue dogs; the more fosters we find, the more lives we can save!! This rescue does provide a crate, bowls, and a leash to borrow during their temporary stay with you, however foster families are asked to provide their own food to cut costs.

FOSTERING TO ADOPT: Should you choose to adopt from Needum Rescue, we require you to foster the adoptable dog for a 2-3 week period minimum before committing to adopt. This is a forever situation, so we require our potential adopters to be 150% sure before choosing a dog. TRANSPORTING: We love our transporters!!! Many of our dogs need to catch a ride, whether it be to adoption events, vet visits, return trips to their fosters! Please let me know if you are interested in helping our pups get from one destination to another! Feel free to ask me any questions or contact me if you are interested in donating or becoming a foster! I can help you find a dog that's best suited for your families needs! Thank you again for your time!!

Taylor is the best. My baby was pulled out of San Antonio with the help of Mission Miracle K-9 and Need’um Rescue. I’ve been lucky enough to meet several of Taylor’s rescue pups and she consistently saves incredible dogs. Great to work with and genuinely cares. 10/10
Here comes my next foster , coming up on Saturday. #birdie

Hi Everbody I just fostered a rescue dog. Small-ish (20lbs), 2-3 years old. He is mix but definitely some Beagle in him. I'm wondering if anyone has any dog supplies they no longer need, such as: A cage Gates (like baby gates) A bed Etc. Thank you in advance. Sincerely Annemarie
