The rescue and adoption of our pets; dogs, cats, birds, reptiles, rabbits, ferrets, etc., is critical to the well-being of these companions. This page is dedicated to providing rescue and adoption lists for all types of pets. We thank all those people who give unselfishly to the saving and placement of the less fortunate, and we hope that any heartache you encounter is overwhelmed by the happiness you make.
You will find listings with a “Yes” in the No-Kill column. This means that rescue is a shelter where animals are only euthanized if they are too sick to be treated or too aggressive to be suitable for adoption.

The Shelter Pet Project a public service ad campaign focused on spreading the word that pets in shelters are wonderful and lovable, and encouraging potential adopters to consider the shelter as the first place to look when acquiring a “new best friend.”
IMPORTANT NOTICE: It is PGAA’s desire to provide a list of adoption and rescue sites that rescue pets and, hopefully, place them into new loving and caring homes. While we make every effort to only publish links from reputable rescue agencies, we HAVE NOT physically reviewed these organizations.
Caution: Because no single group can continually review and rate all the rescue services across the country each individual adopter should review any group before adopting. When adopting carefully review the shelter itself to make sure they’re a reliable shelter with the greater good of the animal their prime concern. Things to look for are: the condition of the animals in their care; the cleanliness of the facilities; the experience of the staff; health care of the animal while it is in their shelter; the rescue contract (is it fair to you, the shelter and the animal); and any other observations that may make you question their integrity. They should be doing the same review on you and your home.
If your search of our listings has not provided you with the help you needed please contact PGAA at firstname.lastname@example.org.
