Safe and Sound Rescue Project
Veterinarians Giving Back
Welcome to the Safe & Sound Rescue Project! Thanks for taking the time to get to know a little more about us. We hope you will join us on this journey, finding these rescues their newfound love in their forever homes.
We are a small, locally registered not-for-profit group who believes adoptable animals should not be euthanized when they are injured or abandoned, but rather given another chance. We take in animals from other veterinarians, emergency clinics, overwhelmed owners, breeders etc.
We are a no judgement zone which means various kinds of people bring us dogs or puppies & sometimes they are house-trained and extremely well socialized; sometimes they are timid, even fearful and have never seen a leash. We spend a lot of time cultivating trust relationships with these rescues and we love it when we see how far they come. Whether it’s something as small as making eye contact, or going the whole way to let us pet and cuddle with them, we are always proud of what we do. When dog farmers send us their retired breeding dogs – we applaud them for this, as the alternatives are often not so kind.
We will do what we can to help as many dogs as possible and we have become very well known for the work that we do. When we get too full – we often work with our local humane societies & we will spay, neuter and repair dogs, and send them to the groups we trust.
We don’t do any major fundraisers. The practice owners donate their facility, their staff time and professional fees to help with the cause.
Safe & Sound Project is in our 18th year and to date we have saved over 4000 dogs. We have so many loyal supporters and people who love what we do, and we are proud to say the word is spreading and there are now several other hospitals using similar models.
If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact us!
