Goals for 2014

Our goal is to get our new sanctuary up and running so that dogs, horses and other critters have a place to go, rest, recover and then be re-adopted to permanent homes. Our next projects include building play yards for the dogs and new fences up for the horses.

If you would like to help us get these projects going, please donate gift cards from

Lowes or Home Depot 

for the supplies we need. We look forward working with our community to reach these goals and to provide our animals with the best services available.  Our dogs come from euthanasia lists from local shelters and we are often their last chance. Please join the team of caring people by donating, volunteering, getting involved. Help us help them. Saving one set of paws at a time!

Our adoption van took its final farewell trip last weekend. It has a blown head gasket which as a older van, means we need to shop for a newer vehicle. UGH! This is how we get these dogs to adoption events, to vet appointments, to fosters, and pick up from shelters. Now we have nothing other than private cars which are often too small or not efficient.  If anyone has a lead on a van in excellent shape, a newer year, affordable, please contact us at: thedogspotrescue@aol.com. If you would like to donate to our New Van Fund, please send donations to:

Thank you all for helping us get these dogs to a Home of their own.

TDS services over 1,000 animals in 2013. These dogs, cats, horses would not be alive today without the help we gave through your donations.

This expense is on top of our yearly budget of need of which 90 per cent comes from donations. This determines how many animals we can serve in the following year. Not everyone can be a foster, transporter, or help at adoption events. But any amount of donation, can make the difference for a shelter dog on a euthanasia list. We want to make 2014 the best year ever!
