Indigo Rescue directs a great deal of our resources and efforts to promoting spaying and neutering and deterring animal abandonment. One of our most important community goals is finding ways to help people commit to their pets for their entire lives. As a network of foster homes we are unable to operate at a volume that a shelter would, but we continue to rescue urgent cases from local animal shelters and other special cases where we feel it is appropriate to intervene. We can’t help it, it’s in our hearts.
Indigo Rescue provides ongoing consultation with independent rescuers by guiding them while they provide food, shelter and medical care for abandoned animals. We help them write ads, post biographies with services such as Petfinders, interview potential adopters, and deliver pets to new homes. We continue to encourage individuals to provide some kind of help for every abandoned animal who wanders into their lives. (see Finding a home for a rescued pet). We will continue to use this page to highlight inspirational rescue stories.
Below are some examples of our distant rescue efforts followed by stories of some of our local rescues:
