Our Work

White River Animal Rescue has developed strong resources and opportunities in the community to rescue all dogs regardless of their age, breed, or ease of placement in order to find them a good home.

How do we rescue dogs? 

We decide if we are able to help a dog. Next, we assess the medical, nutritional, and psychological needs.

Next, remove the dog from impending danger to safety. (In fact, not that simple.)

92% of the dogs we rescue have between 30 minutes and 24 hours to live.

 

Our Foster Homes

WRAR has over 20 foster homes in the South and Northeast. 

All dogs we rescue, are housed in foster homes.
