Year In Review | 2017

3R Rescue is proud of its commitment to caring for rescued animals "as long as it takes" to find a forever home. We celebrate our successes with the special types of rescue cases we accept, not just the number of animals saved.

In 2017, for example, just 39% of dogs we rescued were young, healthy and ready for adoption after routine medical and basic training. The remainder of these deserving animals fell into categories that required expanded time commitments and often extensive rehabilitation before they were ready for new homes.

  • 39% were puppies, which included abandoned litters, some still nursing, and others with urgent nutritional and medical needs.
  • 7% were seniors dogs, each with their own wise individuality, but unique veterinary and dietary needs. Senior dogs typically take longer to find new, forever homes.
  • 11% required extensive medical treatment & recovery including emergency cases of broken limbs, a fractured jaw and an eye enucleation.
  • 4% needed special attention for behavioral rehabilitation due to possible neglect, abuse or lack of socialization.
  • 100% received basic medical and training/practice with basic commands and leash manners.
  • Three dogs were displaced CALIFORNIA WILDFIRE VICTIMS that needed new families to call their own.

Despite these challenges, there are many HAPPY ENDINGS to celebrate. But, don't take our word for some Success Stories shared by 3R Adopters and smile for yourself!
