MCM Rottweiler Rescue, Inc. is a non-profit organization committed to finding homes for our breed. Our physical location is New York City and Long Island. We are a small group just trying to do our part.
We are always looking for volunteers, most especially foster homes & individuals willing and able to evaluate dogs in their local shelters. If you are in a position to foster and want to help save a life please email Georgiann at firstname.lastname@example.org. Not only are there are so many Rottweilers in the shelters, we also have many calls from people with much loved pets who due to circumstances are forced to give up their pets. If you are interested in one of our dogs please email ROTTIERESQ@MSN.COM for an application
In addition we are in need of the following:
Leashes and collars - Rottweiler size
Dog crates - Rottweiler size
Dog vitamins, supplements, treats
Heartguard for heartworm prevention
Frontline Plus for fleas and ticks
I RESCUED A HUMAN TODAY by Janine Allen
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 would not 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 did not want her to know that I had not been walked today. Sometimes the overworked shelter keepers get too busy and I did not want her to think poorly of them.
As she read my kennel card I hoped that she would not 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.
