RESCUE 

The Village Dog supports animal rescue and animal welfare efforts in a multitude of ways.  

 

The Village Dog provided the funding for the purchase of a four-acre property with a residence, and also for a transportation van and top of the line kennel system to house up to 40 dogs from the K9 Kennel Store for an inspirational husband and wife animal rescue allowing them to continue their work on behalf of animals in need. 

 

The photos shown here are are just some of the over 60 dogs that The Village Dog has fostered and helped place into awesome loving forever homes.  For links to sites where you may look for your own rescue dog, please see further below.

 

At The Village Dog, we love dogs whether large, small, young, old, mutts or breed-specific.

A member of one of Julie's earlier packs. Rescued by Julie in a large-scale rescue of 12 dogs from a condemned building in Chicago's inner-city. Loved by everyone!
