Shelter2Rescue Coalition is an all-volunteer rescue organization dedicated to the safe-rehoming of shelter animals. We started as a rescue facilitation organization, helping rural shelters publicize their at-risk dogs and cats, thereby dramatically reducing the need to euthanize for space. Then, as we worked with more shelters, it became very apparent that if we could just buy the dogs or cats up for euthanasia just a little more time, you could save even more lives. The 72-hour hold limit at most shelters just wasn't enough for most dogs/cats to get out. Therefore, we expanded and built partnerships with boarding facilities, transport organizations and other nationwide rescues in order to be able to provide a temporary safe haven for dogs out of time. We have our own Shelter2Rescue Coalition adoption program. Our main program with our rural shelters is NoKill Rural Texas,found on FB. Since June 2007, through facilitation and adoption, Shelter2Rescue Coalition volunteers have saved over 3000 dogs and cats, the number grows as we do. We do our best to match up potential adopters with just the right pet as we want to ensure a lifelong placement for the rescued animal. Our adoption process includes an initial application, with reference and vet checks, home visit when able. If the match is a good one, we then have an adoption contract that is executed. We have a commitment not only to our adopted dogs and cats, but also to the families that adopt them, and we are always available to help with the transition to a new home. We check in during the first few weeks to answer any questions or help with any issues - or to just give you someone to brag to about your new baby. We can't hear that too much!
