Tri-County Animal Rescue is desperately in need of additional foster homes so that we can help more animals in need of re-homing. The need in this area has always been great and due to the economic conditions is growing rapidly as more and more families are faced with job loss and losses of homes forcing them to look for new homes for their pets. When rescue groups cannot respond to these needs, owners are forced to surrender their animals to already crowded animal shelters in this area or worse leaving them behind to fend for themselves. If you are not in a position to permanently add a new pet to your family, you can still help by providing a loving home environment for an animal in need. We will provide everything you need to care for your foster. If you are interested in learning more about fostering, please give us a call TODAY!

GIVE THIS SOME THOUGHT,
ANOTHER PERSPECTIVE TO THINK ABOUT.......... I rescued a human today. Her eyes met mine as she walked down the corridor peering apprehensively into the kennels. I felt her need instantly and knew I had to help her. I wagged my tail, not too exuberantly, so she wouldn't be afraid. As she stopped at my kennel I blocked her view from a little accident I had in the back of my cage. I didn't want her to know that I hadn't been walked today. Sometimes the shelter keepers get too busy and I didn't want her to think poorly of them. As she read my kennel card I hoped that she wouldn't feel sad about my past. I only have the future to look forward to and want to make a difference in someone's life. She got down on her knees and made little kissy sounds at me. I shoved my shoulder and side of my head up against the bars to comfort her. Gentle fingertips caressed my neck; she was desperate for companionship. A tear fell down her cheek and I raised my paw to assure her that all would be well. Soon my kennel door opened and her smile was so bright that I instantly jumped into her arms. I would promise to keep her safe. I would promise to always be by her side. I would promise to do everything I could to see that radiant smile and sparkle in her eyes. I was so fortunate that she came down my corridor. So many more are out there who haven't walked the corridors. So many more to be saved. At least I could save one. I rescued a human today.

Tri-County Animal Rescue volunteers bring you over thirty-five years of dedication to the welfare of animals. You can be sure that any rescued animal you adopt from TCAR has received the loving care and handling they need and deserve by their fosters. TCAR is a 501 3c non profit status, totally volunteered based organization formed by a group of individuals striving to make a difference in the world of abandoned, homeless, neglected pets in November of 2005. Our volunteers are available to talk to you in all areas of animal care, nutrition and behavior needed when adopting a rescued animal from us for your home. We believe in giving you as much information as we have available about your new pet along with providing you a healthy new family member. This along with patience and positive reinforcement will increase the bond between you and your pet, allowing for a rich, long lasting relationship you both deserve. Training with positive reinforcement and patient instruction helps you to become a better pet owner and your pet become a better companion, a loving member of the family and a welcome member of society.
