Give a Dog a Home Rescue is based in Sebec, Maine. It is a registered nonprofit, and a state of Maine licensed animal rescue shelter and charitable organization.

They have 16 dogs arriving this week from Texas and three from Hawaii.  The animals come from overcrowded shelters where when they get overcrowded they euthanize the animals.

The shelter has a belief that no animals should be killed and also work on worldwide initiatives that save dogs from the meat trade in China and South Korea and also saves animals in war-torn countries in the Middle East.

Here at home, there is a lot more going on at the shelter in the poorest county in the state.

Jenny Cope who is President and Founder of the rescue says

The rescue has a lot to offer and I have big plans to do a lot more.

Give a Dog a Home Rescue is also an Ambassador for the Goods program, through the Greater Good charities, the only one in Maine.

This program sources and manages excess, re-branded, and short-dated food and supplies from manufacturers, distributors, and retailers. Goods then makes these products available to qualified and approved distribution groups using a fee arrangement similar to a food bank model.

The goods are donated, but the freight, warehouse, and program costs are paid by the recipients. It works out to pennies on the dollar.

Anybody can participate, like shelters, humane societies, etc. allowing animal welfare and human services organizations to stretch their dollars further and impact even more pets and people.
