AMPS, INC. is a non-profit organization registered in the State of New Hampshire comprised exclusively of volunteers. Our group is dedicated to rescuing, fostering, transporting, and otherwise coordinating efforts to help minpins in need find their way to loving, permanent homes. Each rescued MinPin is treated with special care. They are evaluated by a veterinarian for common health issues, are given required medical care, spayed or neutered and microchipped. We screen every applicant very carefully to ensure that they understand the responsibilities involved in caring properly for a pet. Our responsibility is to place our dogs into homes that will best meet their needs, both physically and emotionally. We look for people with patience, loving hearts, and an understanding of a minpin's needs. A detailed application from which we conduct reference verifications and a home visit with all household members present are pre-adoption requirements. During this process, our pets are safely and lovingly cared for in private, approved foster homes.
Each year a shocking number of MinPins around the states of MA, RI, and CT are abandoned in shelters or given up by their owners to our rescue. Some of these pins have been abused and neglected; some are sick; still others came from loving homes and were displaced because of a death in the family. All of them need your help. If you are interested in volunteering for us, please fill out a Volunteer Application on our website.
