Music City Animal Rescue (Nashville, TN)
Music City Animal Rescue is a foster-based, volunteer group that rescues abandoned, abused or neglected animals in and around the Middle Tennessee area. Their mission is to educate the public on how they can help control pet overpopulation as well as encourage them to choose adoption first. A dedicated group of volunteers spend hours working with the animals to ensure they are ready for their forever homes. This includes training, socialization, getting them to vet appointments, in some cases obedience training, leash training, crate training and other issues as they arise. In 2015 alone with only 4-5 volunteers, Music City Animal Rescue has helped to rehome over 130 animals. Good stewards in their community, they will also help out surrounding shelters when they are at capacity. For more information, visit them at www.MusicCityAnimalRescue.com.
Heartland Animal Shelter (Northbrook, IL)
Heartland Animal Shelter is a no-kill organization dedicated to finding homeless dogs and cats forever homes while educating the public on the importance of spaying and neutering in order to stop the pet overpopulation problem. Since 2002, Heartland has rescued over 8000 dogs and cats, and they do not discriminate against breed, age, size or health. On a monthly basis, Heartland has 220 active volunteers that help provide the best possible care for over 100 precious cats and dogs.

Seniors Rock! (Waukesha, WI)
Specializing in rescuing senior dogs, Seniors Rocks! gets most of its dogs from MADACC – a holding facility for stray animals found in Milwaukee County. However, they also work with other shelters in Wisconsin. Senior dogs do not typically thrive in a shelter environment and are more difficult for shelters to place with an adoptive family. Occasionally they will take an owner-surrender, but it is their mission to help get the dogs of out animal shelters first, or they provide hospice foster family care to make sure dogs are shown love and compassion through their final days. Completely foster-based, their devoted foster families provide the shelter, safety and most of all LOVE that they need. To learn more, visit them at www.seniorsrocksts.org.
