Intake Numbers of Dogs and Puppies in rural Southern shelters is extremely high. Many times puppies and highly adoptable dogs are being euthanized due to lack of space. We hope to help shelters change their intake policies, promote spay/neuter in communities and find ways to rescue the majority of adoptable dogs and puppies in high kill shelters.
Once a canine training and behavior counseling business, PARTNERS! Canines became a non-profit, 501c3 registered organization in 2007 in order to continue to grow our shelter canine transport and rescue efforts throughout Virginia and the surrounding states.
All proceeds raised through our training and teaching sessions, donation collections go toward transferring great (friendly, healthy, non-aggressive) but unadopted dogs and puppies from shelters in North Carolina, Virginia and Tennessee to other states and national “no kill” facilities and rescue organizations where they are held until they are adopted. Most of these dogs and puppies are adopted in days.
The donations and contributions we receive allow us to save hundreds of precious lives every year. Last year alone, PARTNERS! provided a second chance for over 2000 dogs and puppies!
PARTNERS! also offers various services for shelters and rescue orgainizations, such as staff training, behavior workshops and fundraising guidance. If you would like to contribute to our rescue efforts, schedule a workshop or receive more information about our transports please fill out the necessary online forms on this website or contact us.
