Rez Dog Rescue: Help Them Help Animals in Need

ICTMN Staff
12/5/12

Rez Dog Rescue is a nonprofit animal rescue and welfare group based on the Yakama Nation Reservation in Washington state. They receive no public or tribal funding, and rely solely on the generosity of concerned animal lovers. With just three people, they make a world of difference for animals in need.

The org's mission statement is: "Dedicated to rescuing abused, injured and unwanted dogs and cats in an effort to give them a 2nd chance in life."

Although donations are always accepted, the RDR is currently holding a fund-raiser, selling T-shirts and sweatshirts--all the proceeds going to helping animals in need. You can find out more about the fund-raiser here. To get your items before Christmas, you'll need to order before December 9.

The rescue's website can be reached by clicking here.

And more about the pictured dog, Warrior, who was an abused pup. He recently posted the following message on Rez Dog Rescue's Facebook page: 

"Hello RDR Fans, it's your buddy Warrior. I thought I'd let you know, I've checked in to the Rez Dog Retreat for awhile. I'm just checking out part of my new yard in this picture. I'm look'n sooo goooood, thought you'd like to see how much weight I've put on and how much of my hair is growing back. You can still see my back bone, but my ribs are covered with some meat now. Most of my sores are healed, but I will still need medicated baths for ahwile. OK, so for my first day at the retreat, I got up, ate breakfast, went out to play with some kids, came in and slept close to my foster mom. After nap, we had lunch, went out and played some more, came back in and took another nap....Holy moleeee, when it got dark my foster mom tried to feed me again. I'm stuffed!!! Guess it's time for another nap!!! I get to use the computer so will be updating you more now that I'm at the retreat. OK, my friends, I'm fading fast,  and there's a nice warm fire I should probably go lay by, so night night for now, Your Buddy, Warrior."

I am so thankful for Rez Dog Rescue! We adopted our dog from them in 2011 and can't imagine life without her. Adopt a rescue animal, they will change your life!

Thank you for putting a spot light on our local rescue Rezdog. I have lived here most of my life and stray neglected and abused dogs have always been a problem. This small group does miracles with the limited resources they have, hopefully with this mention in your news feed, they will get more help.

You can see the pain and suffering in his face -he is so lucky he was rescued from the hell hole he must have been -existing in ,in all countries there are abused dogs and of course other animals ,if laws were made more strict -such as a licence for backyard breeding -puppy farms -the greedy breeders-check on the living conditions of animals in their care - made to limit the the amount of times a breeding dog can give birth a year and monitor this - rigidly-also a record should be kept of animal abusers which can be checked before selling an animal to the general public-and follow up -house checks by inspectors as to the welfare of the animals.-prosecute those -who neglect to care for their animals -and remove any that are mistreated -it can and should be done -for the sake of animals such as Warrior.
