It is a horrible reality that in today's 'civilised' society, that such a thing as animal rescue is even necessary. The fact that it is, is illustrated by the numbers of pure breed and general shelters and rescues that can be found all over the world.
Animal shelters can be publicly or privately owned and administrated. In general, government run shelters will take starys in off the street but if homes are not found wthin a limited period, they will be put to sleep.
Privately owned rescues and rehoming centres are more likely to be no-kill facilities where lost, abandoned and unwanted animals are cared for and fostered until a suitable new home can be found.
You will find links to breed rescues on most of the dog, cat and horse breed pages of this site. Where you can't, that's only bacause I haven't found anyfor that breed as yet.
There are also several rescue and adoption related pages on the site that you might want to browse through.
