Nuts for Mutts Rescue, Inc. is an all-volunteer dog rescue organization incorporated in March of 2010 and located in Rochester, New York. We are a 501(c)(3) charitable organization and all donations are tax deductible. Our operations are supported solely by donations and volunteers.
Our mission is to rescue, provide sanctuary, and obtain medical care, through licensed veterinarians, to ultimately re-home abandoned, surrendered, stray, abused or neglected dogs. We also want to educate the public on the plight of homeless dogs, the benefits of adoption, the importance of spay/neuter, and the proper care of dogs.
Our volunteers come from all walks of life, but have one fundamental thing in common, and that is our love of dogs and our dedication to help them in whatever way we can. Each volunteer has their own stories and motivations for doing what they do, but all of us do it for one reason: LOVE! Most of our volunteers have been doing rescue work for many years and are what we lovingly refer to as our “Seasoned Nuts!”
Our dogs come to us in a variety of ways, such as shelter turnovers and owner surrenders. Dogs will be accepted regardless of breed, size, age, or medical status providing that there is a suitable foster home available to care for the dog, as well as financial means to provide for the medical care of the dog. Priority is given to dogs coming from abuse or neglect situations, shelter turnovers, owner surrenders, or other situations that might place the dog in imminent danger of homelessness, injury, neglect or death.
All of the dogs that come to the rescue are placed in appropriate foster homes while they are evaluated and given any needed medical care. Our foster volunteers are a wonderful, caring, and compassionate lot who open their hearts, homes and wallets knowing that their only compensation will be that mixture of joy and sorrow they will one day feel when they hand off that happy, healthy, wagging tail to a smiling adopter who promises to love them forever!
