Local Pet Rescue Brings Awareness To National Rescue Dog Day

In honor of National Rescue Dog Day on May 20, God’s Dogs Rescue, a prominent local pet rescue organization in the San Antonio area, is spotlighting its ongoing commitment to caring for the region’s homeless pets. With the launch of its innovative Virtual Foster Program, the rescue aims to provide vital support to shelter animals in need.

Every day, God’s Dogs Rescue tirelessly provides shelter, sustenance, and care to countless animals that find themselves without a home. In light of the staggering statistics from the ASPCA, which reveal that approximately 3.1 million dogs enter US animal shelters each year, the importance of organizations like God’s Dogs Rescue cannot be overstated. While millions of dogs are adopted or returned to their owners annually, a heartbreaking 920,000 shelter animals are euthanized each year.

The Virtual Foster Program introduced by God’s Dogs Rescue offers a convenient avenue for supporters to contribute to the well-being of these animals, even if they are unable to physically foster them. With the program, patrons can make monthly donations to support the needs of shelter pets awaiting their forever homes. These donations cover essential expenses such as food, treats, grooming, hygiene care, vaccinations, and health screenings. With over 1,200 pets rescued annually, the Virtual Foster Program presents a tangible way for individuals to make a meaningful difference in the lives of these animals.

God’s Dogs Rescue serves communities across South Texas, providing refuge and rehabilitation to abused, abandoned, and neglected dogs until they can be placed in loving homes, whether locally or even internationally, including Canada. Since its founding in 1995, the organization has remained steadfast in its mission to rescue and care for “God’s Lost Dogs.”
