Help Broken PuppiesThe Murphy and Rooty Broken Puppy ProgramHelp Broken Puppies

An anonymous donor established this program in honor of Murphy and Rooty, two Rawhide dogs that came in with severe birth defects requiring extensive surgery.  Rawhide Rescue’s mission is to help dogs that fall between the gaps in the shelter system.  Among these cases are the injured and sick puppies that are either left at the shelter or found on the streets.  Many have broken legs from being hit by cars or abused by unkind people.  Some have skin diseases that can be cured if given proper veterinary care.  Others have viral or bacterial infections that are contagious and require extensive treatment and even isolation. For these sweet and innocent dogs that are just starting their journey in life, we want to provide a safe and happy environment for them to heal.  We want them to know that the world really can be fun and full of warm laps and long cuddles.  If you are interested in financially helping to nurse these babies back to health, please contribute to Murphy and Rooty’s Broken Puppy Program.

We Need Your Help--

Just look at that sad face!! Sandi was picked up as stray in Manhattan. Can you believe that she is only about two-years old? We couldn't either. Sandi has  severe skin problems resulting in numerous secondary infections. She recently had a costly skin biopsy to determine the cause. We found out that she has all of this discomfort due to the fact that her allergies were never treated. She is on three different kinds of medications to treat all of the various infections she has to fight.

Even with all this disomfort this sweeheart finds it in her heart to be so sweet and loving.  When our volunteer, now fostermom, saw her picture and those sad eyes--she just had to help her

Sandi just loves being with people--
Please donate to help Sandi




Broken puppies come in all sizes and ages! Click the bandaged paw and you will be taken to PayPal's secure site and be given the opportunity to target your donation to a specific dog.

We are dedicated to providing safe havens for dogs who find themselves without a home, regardless of age, size or  breed. Many families who want to add a puppy to their family might consider adoption if more puppies were available. In the current circumstance of overpopulation of dogs, even puppies are routinely killed, thus we continue to address the root cause of homeless animals, overpopulation. A single male and female and their offspring can produce thousands of offspring in six years. If you would like to donate a spay/neuter certificate in your  dog's name, please click on the paypal link above.  

sponsor a pet

Sponsor ANY of our Rawhide Pets

Join our program to sponsor a Rawhide Pet until it becomes adopted. Now you can sponsor your own Rawhide pet! For a monthly donation of $25, you can select your own special pet to sponsor. This program helps us with the basic care of an animal, including food and veterinary costs.

We are often contacted by people who ask us about a particular dog.  Regretfully they are unable to adopt due to personal circumstances.  Our sponsorship program allows you to know you have a role in the well-being and care of "your" pet while in foster.

We are always in need of dog food and an assortment of supplies. If you would like to help download our Microsoft Word Rawhide Rescue Wish List and we'll be more than happy to receive any of the items listed.

We can ALWAYS use dog beds of various sizes and shapes. Our dogs are not always too gentle with their beds so we appreciate any donations. Also, collars, leashes and harnesses are a great hit with our foster parents We can take in at our adoption events or you can email or call about making a product donation.

  • Volunteer Your Time
To become a Rawhide Rescue Volunteer, download the volunteer application and email it to our volunteer coordinator. While many of our volunteers are foster parents, we have lots of opportunities to volunteer for those who cannot have foster pets (or for "failed fosters", those who end up adopting their foster pets!). Fundraising, helping handle dogs at adoption days, making biscuits and goodies to sell, event planning and grant writing are all options for additional volunteer opportunities. We also can use professional skills, from lawyers and graphic artists, to accountants and dog groomers. If you have a desire to help dogs in any capacity, we will find a spot for you!
  • Matching Gift
Many companies have Matching Gift programs and/or programs that encourage their employees to assist non-profits in the community. Why don't you find out if you, too, work for a "giving" organization or maybe you can start a program in your workplace. Adoptive mom, Melissa, began a program at the school where she teaches and Rawhide Rescue has benefited through donations of food and supplies.!

Rawhide Rescue is an all-volunteer federally qualified 501(c)(3) non-profit animal rescue organization whose primary mission is to rescue dogs, regardless of their age, medical needs or other conditions.  We rescue dogs who have "fallen through the cracks" in the animal sheltering system left by private and municipal shelters, as well as other pet rescue groups due to the overwhelming number of homeless animals in our communities.
