SPDR's Rescue Statistics


Whether we refer an adopter to a dog needing to be rehomed, or take a purebred dog out of the shelter for foster care (leaving room for more dogs to be handled by the shelter), we are proud of our efforts to find new homes for purebred dogs.

Rescue Statistics for 2022

During 2022, SPDR was contacted about 320 purebred dogs needing new homes.  Rottweilers were the top dogs needing rescue with 80 and Shih Tzus were second with 44.

Our Breed Representatives work very hard to find homes for as many dogs as they can. Many have organized a great team of volunteers and foster homes that support them in the rescue of their breed. Much of their success can also be attributed to having generous donors and being able to raise money to help dogs with special medical or behavioral needs.

If you would like to help SPDR and support your favorite breed, please consider making a donation.

A very heart-felt thank you goes to all the dedicated Breed Reps, Co-Reps, Foster Homes and the many other volunteers who helped SPDR continue to serve its mission. Not only are these statistics an important educational tool for the public, they are an excellent testimony to the success of our organization as a whole.
