Anarchy Animal Rescue & Rehabilitation was founded in Dec of 2010 out of need and desire to help address two major animal crises in this country - unwanted adoptable pets and the mistreatment and abuse of animals due to puppy mills. Our goal is to find good loving homes for as many pets as we can take in, care for medically and place in responsible homes. After years of working in various animal shelters and fostering and volunteering with local rescue groups, we decided the time has come to do on our own what we do best - save lives! Every year millions of homeless adoptable pets are surrendered to kill shelters across the country. The majority of those animals are put to death due to overcrowding of these shelters. This overcrowding is caused by people purchasing animals from pet stores or breeders and by not spaying or neutering their pets. Every time a person buys a pet or allows their pet to breed, perfectly adoptable dogs and cats are killed in a shelter. It is a vicious cycle and can only be stopped with education, outreach and adoption. If everyone adopted their pets from shelters or rescue groups, there would be less euthanasia in our city pounds. When shelters are overcrowded we are called in to help. By us taking shelter pets into our rescue, we open up cages so the shelters have room for other animals that are coming in resulting is less animals being put to sleep.
Puppy mills are mass breeding farms created for the sole purpose of profit. The dogs in puppy mills are considered 'product', not living breathing animals. 99% of pet stores across the country obtain their puppies from these mills.
The parents of these pet store puppies suffer horribly living
in cages until they no longer produce quality puppies. At that point they are killed in a horrific manor, unless we step in to help. We are able to take some of these breeding dogs into our rescue, rehabilitate them, treat them for any medical issues they may have, spay/neuter them and find them loving home. Most of these mill dogs do not know the true joys of being a dog as they have lived in cages their entire lives.
We cannot act alone and we are always in dire need of donations, volunteers, foster homes and adopters. Without those things we would not be able to continue doing what we do!!
