Domestic Animal Rescue

The ongoing goal of our organization is to encourage the public to peacefully coexist with all animals, wild and domestic. We believe if people are given access to the right resources and information, they can learn so much more about animals and gain a new perspective. Listen to and learn from the stories we share - they just might inspire you to embrace animals more in your own life.

What's the difference between a domestic animal and a wild animal?

A domestic animal is tame - people have selectively bred them over many generations to live with and be dependent upon people for all of their needs, such as food and shelter.  Domestic animals serve as companions (or pets), a food source or as working or draft animals.  Some examples: dogs, pigs, horses

wild animal isn't tame and it lives on its own without any help from people. A wild animal finds its own food, shelter, water and all its other needs in a specific natural habitat outdoors.  Some examples: squirrels, bears, birds, raccoon

What is Domestic Animal Rescue?

Domestic animal rescue can include many things.  Generally, it is an organization or individual who dedicates time to ensure the well-being of domestic animals.  This could include rescuing abandoned, abused or neglected domestic animals, providing them with critical care (food, shelter, medical attention) and potentially finding people to adopt them.
