About Us
Petie, one of the dogs that found a
wonderful home through Ahimsa
Rescue Foundation
In the world of animal welfare, Ahimsa Rescue Foundation continues to leave its mark. Every year, our organization rescues and finds homes for hundreds of unwanted companion animals.  All of our dogs and cats are spayed or neutered prior to placement and receive any and all necessary medical care before they are placed in carefully screened homes.  Ahimsa Rescue Foundation is also proud to be able help so many animals.  And once an animal passes through our adoption programs, we are responsible for them for life.  In fact, we insist that if for any reason the adoptive family cannot keep their pet, he or she must be returned to us for re-homing.

Ahimsa Rescue Foundation specializes in the rescue and placement of abused, unwanted, and abandoned companion animals.  We never discriminate on the basis of health, age or breed.  Ahimsa Rescue Foundation accepts pets from private surrenders and re-home strays; however, the majority of our animals come to us from other shelters that become too overcrowded. By involving and educating the community, Ahimsa Rescue Foundation works to raise the public's awareness of the plight of homeless animals as well as realizing the benefits of adopting an animal in need.

Ahimsa Rescue Foundation is an all volunteer, not-for-profit 501 (c)(3) organization.  There are no employees or paid staff at Ahimsa Rescue.  Ahimsa Rescue operates by virtue of generous and compassionate volunteers who graciously and freely give their time, energy, and resources. They receive NO compensation other than the deep satisfaction in knowing that they are saving the lives of animals who are vigilant guards, relentless messengers, gentle baby-sitters, brave soldiers, hilarious clowns, and mostly, dear friends.

Ahimsa Rescue looks back with warm remembrances of the many of animals we have been able to help. And we look ahead with excitement to the many opportunities offered to our volunteers. The work is difficult but Ahimsa Rescue can't help but renew its commitment to our four-legged friends every time we look into the eyes of an animal in need.
