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.
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!!
