Our Mission

Giving Dogs A Second Chance.

Dog Squad is a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit shelter-less animal rescue organization established in 2022. We rescue many of our dogs from euthanasia at overcrowded shelters. We also take in sick, injured, abused, and abandoned stray dogs who may not have been given a second chance otherwise.

We work with dogs of all breeds, all ages, all sizes, and all medical issues. Dog Squad focuses on rehabilitating these dogs by providing them with proper veterinary care, unconditional love, basic training, and socialization as fosters until they are ready to be adopted into their furever homes. Each rescue dog is fully vetted prior to adoption, which includes spay/neuter, microchipping, and vaccinations.

The majority of the dogs we rescue have significant and/or complex medical needs which are often costly with treatments ranging from $100s to $1,000s. People often avoid fostering homeless pets due to the related costs, and some shelters and rescue organizations do not have the funds necessary to treat the dogs’ complex medical needs. Unfortunately, those dogs miss their opportunity at receiving a second chance.

Dog Squad bridges the gap by supporting other local and national rescue organizations, as well as other foster families, by providing them with the funds needed for the medical treatment of their injured and/or sick rescue dogs.

Dog Squad is a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit, charitable corporation operating in Greenville, South Carolina. It is not funded by any governmental agencies. Dog Squad relies solely on donations from our supporters. Our IRS federal Tax ID is 87-3968693.
