Once Upon a Time
~ 1986 to be exact ~ Tim and Judy decided to go down to the local animal shelter to help out with an adoption event. Throughout the day Tim worked and worked to try to get someone to adopt an Old English Sheepdog that had caught his eye. Sadly, at the end of the day, that sheepdog still sat there, unloved and alone. When Judy ventured to say that she'd like to adopt a doberman she'd seen, Tim said no, they were taking the sheepdog. You see, he knew that, because it was older, it would soon be euthanized. Well, that dog lived another 8 years, and Judy's involvement in animal rescue grew into passion and eventually an organization...
Who We Are Today
Pet Rescue By Judy is a non-profit "NO KILL" organization dedicated to the rescuing and rehabilitation, of companion animals. Many of them come to us with medical needs. They are doctored to the best of our ability and resources.
Our most urgent goal is to rescue animals that are abandoned or in distress, update their vaccines, and find good homes for them. It is our heartfelt desire to prevent any animal from the need to be "rescued." With that vision in mind, we take a three-step approach through the education of pet owners and the general public:
It Takes More Than Good Intentions
Many of the animals we receive arrive from less than ideal condition. We want to help them recover their health, while avoiding risking the health of our other animals. We seek to stop the cycle of breeding unwanted pets. With that in mind, each rescued animal undergoes medical and screening procedures:
Many, if not most, of our pets are in foster homes, therefore we recommend you set up an appointment to meet a specific pet, which can be completed through an online application.
We Need Your Help
Would you like to help? We are always in need of Foster Homes. Fostering for a week or a month can make a huge difference in an animal's life. We also welcome help with walking, feeding, cleaning, adoptions, paperwork, photography- whatever you have the time to give, we appreciate it. Apply to be a Volunteer! And, of course, we are always in need of donations (money, food, crates, beds, etc). You can even come to the aid of a specific animal through our Sponsorship Program. Thank you!
