[ Enter the Rescue Board ]

"The Schnauzer Rescue Board" was create back in January of 1998 to provide a common place to post information pertaining to schnauzers needing homes or individuals seeking to adopt a rescue a schnauzer. The concept was that while there are many bulletin boards, none of them are dedicated exclusively to the rescue of the schnauzer breed and a board devoted exclusively to schnauzer rescue info could facilitate rescues. It has been very successful not only in helping thousands of dogs find home but also many rescue groups have established through roots and recruited volunteers through this board. The board currently gets around 3000 hits a day and is one of the most popular schnauzer sites on the internet.

Postings pertaining rescue information for all three schnauzer types (Miniatures, Giants and Standards) as well as schnauzer mixes are welcomed on this site. Please reframe from flaming, debating or using the board as a chat board... it takes way from its purpose.

This board is registered as its own site with the search engines so it can receive traffic directly related to schnauzer rescue. There is a search facility to help you locate dogs in your area.. enter "AVAIL=xx" where xx is the state you are intereted in.

Below are some general guidelines on what to post to make it more effective along with instructions on how to post, please take a moment to read them before posting.
