We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit, all volunteer organization. RescuesForJoJo (RFJ) was founded to help rescue shelter dogs in need. Our group focuses more on the "undesirables" in the shelter; medically fragile, injured, abused, and breed or color specific dogs who would, otherwise, be looked over and euthanized through no fault of their own.

RFJ receives dogs from high kill shelters. We depend solely upon the help of pre-approved fosters.
