It has been said that keeping up with animal rescue is like emptying the ocean with a teaspoon. When one group of people attempt it all on their own that certainly proves true. But when various rescue groups, donors, drivers, and event volunteers all work together we can accomplish amazing things!
Listed below are some of the entities we work with so we can keep saving dogs in our area.
Cedarwood has been our family veterinarian for many years. P.M.F.C. has provided rehab/recovery care to orphaned dogs brought to Cedarwood for emergency medical attention. NOTE: Cedarwood is not a non-profit, but donations made on Piney Mountain Foster Care’s account at Cedarwood are tax deductible under PMFC’s 501(c)(3) status.
N.A.C. runs a limited “shelter” and accepts owner surrenders from residents of the city only. They do adopt out these surrenders and unclaimed stray animals that are picked up and brought to their holding facility. They also work with several local rescues, including Piney Mountain Foster Care, to save the unwanted animals.
We work with the following entities to secure funding and find forever homes for the dogs we rescue locally.
A Pathway to Hope
A foster based rescue in Northern, NJ dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and adoption of abandoned dogs and cats, with a focus on special needs cases, south to north rescue of northern breed dogs, local rescue of stray cats and all breeds of dogs and community outreach to further the cause of rescue.
Their mission is simple: To create a unified network of shelters and rescue organizations throughout New England, all working together for a common good. It is common, everyday practice to have to kill dogs and cats in an over crowded shelter to make room for incoming animals. Meanwhile in another shelter across town or across state borders, there are no dogs available for adoption. An opportunity to save lives!
O.F.S.D.S. is a rescue service dedicated to senior dogs because senior dogs, especially those with medical problems or disabilities, face a much greater chance of euthanasia at shelters than younger dogs because it is difficult to find adopters for them due to their shorter additional life expectancy and unknown veterinary costs. They house some in their facility/home and Forever Foster some to volunteer foster homes within a 100 mile radius of their facility. PMFC is too far away to provide foster care for them, but we do support them financially and can occasionally help out with transporting dogs to them from a rescue situation.
ROAR was founded on the simple principle that we would provide animals in need with the same love, care and compassion we show our own family pets. Since we opened our doors in 2005, we have placed more than 5,000 neglected and unwanted cats and dogs in caring homes throughout Ridgefield and our surrounding towns.
But our mission does not end at our shelter’s door. ROAR’s staff and volunteers are also committed to enhancing the remarkable bond between people and pets through our education and outreach programs, sharing information about the rewards of adopting a pet, responsibilities of pet ownership, and working with student groups in developing ways to “give back” to animals in need.
The following is provided as an aid in finding transport. Inclusion here is not an endorsement of the service as we cannot keep current with the management, policies, and practices of all of these services. Some of these entries are a listing of other services.
GoNorth Animal Transport Collaborative
The GoNorth Animal Transport Collaborative moves dogs, puppies, cats, and kittens from overcrowded east Tennessee animal shelters to under-capacity northern shelters.
Most shelters in east Tennessee are perpetually overcrowded due to random breeding by the large number of unaltered pets. Pet overpopulation is generally not a problem in northern states, where spaying and neutering of pets is a routine part of responsible pet ownership.

This is USDA licensed transport founded by husband and wife team, Jason and Amanda Hopson.

NON-PET TRANSPORTS (FOOD, PET ITEMS) There are times when we have been asked to help deliver pet food/items from a donor to a rescue. We will certainly try. This type of transport requires a flatbed or similar type trailer.
The basic plan is a daisy-chain of volunteers who drive a “leg” of the dog or cat’s journey. Another volunteer picks the animal up from a predetermined location and takes over for their “leg.” This continues until the animal reaches its new home or new rescue group or shelter. YOUR HELP IS NEEDED TO SAVE MORE LIVES!
