|Rescue and Adoption Listings|
The rescue of our pets; dogs, cats, birds, reptiles, rabbits, ferrets, etc., is critical to the well-being of these companions. This page is dedicated to providing rescue lists for all types of pets. We thank all those people who give unselfishly to the saving and placement of the less fortunate, and we hope that any heartache you encounter is overwhelmed by the happiness you make.
You will find listings with a "Yes" in the No-Kill column. This means that rescue is a shelter where animals are only euthanized if they are too sick to be treated or too aggressive to be suitable for adoption.
Ask the Experts: Animal Shelters and Adoption The ASPCA Shelter Research and Development team, led by Dr. Emily Weiss, CAAB, is excited to take questions about all things shelter-related. Got a general question about animal shelters and the pets in them, or about how to find the perfect adoptable pet for your family?

IMPORTANT NOTICE: It is PGAA's desire to provide a list of adoption and rescue sites that rescue pets and, hopefully, place them into new loving and caring homes. While we make every effort to only publish links from reputable rescue agencies, we HAVE NOT physically reviewed these organizations. Let us know of any unfavorable experiences that you may have had with any rescue/adoption group at PGAA Rescues.
Because no single group can continually review and rate all the rescue services across the country each individual adopter should review any group before adopting. When adopting carefully review the shelter itself to make sure they're a reliable shelter with the greater good of the animal their prime concern. Things to look for are: the condition of the animals in their care; the cleanliness of the facilities; the experience of the staff; health care of the animal while it is in their shelter; the rescue contract (is it fair to you, the shelter and the animal); and any other observations that may make you question their integrity. They should be doing the same review on you and your home.
If your search of our listings has not provided you with the help you needed please contact PGAA at Rescue and Adoption Assistance. Describe your situation and provide your City, State and Zip Code for a faster response.
