Lifeline Puppy Rescue and Fostering Pets

Dog overpopulation and irresponsible breeders are a big problem, too often leading to cruel actions like destroying puppies in city and country shelters. Fortunately, there are no-kill rescues across the country, with connections to rural areas and small towns that invest all their time and energy in promoting adoptions and giving them a chance at life.

One of them is Lifeline puppy rescue, a volunteer organization, operating throughout the New Mexico ? Kansas ? Rocky Mountains area, which works to rescue puppies during the week and opens for adoptions during the weekends. For more information please visit our website at www.animalshelter.org
