Meet Our Partners

We are happy to work with the following partners to help place rescue dogs in forever homes.

Humane Tomorrow is dedicated to promoting a respectful, responsible, and compassionate relationship between animals and people.

A non-profit, all-volunteer organization founded in 1997 by a group of experienced rescuers, we work with local animal services agencies to place hundreds of animals each year.

Humane Tomorrow has a team of dedicated volunteers and supporters who make it possible for us to provide numerous services to the community, including:

  • Adoption - Humane Tomorrow works with shelters and other rescue organizations to place hundreds of dogs and cats in adoptive homes each year.
  • Spay/Neuter - Our Catalyst Program provides assistance to pet owner and feral cat caretakers to offer low- or no-cost sterilization.
  • Education - Volunteers are available to visit local schools, scout troops, and other community organizations to provide humane education about topics such as empathy and dog bite prevention.
  • Advocacy - Humane Tomorrow recognizes that laws make a difference. We keep our members informed on current and pending legislation and promote laws and enforcement to protect animals.
  • And of course...Love on Wheels -The Love on Wheels program’s mission is to reduce euthanasia of dogs in Texas by transporting them to areas where the demand for adoptable dogs cannot currently be met.

In order to meet the needs of the ever-growing number of homeless pets, Save a Stray was founded in 2012 with a mission of enriching the lives of shelter pets in Mobile, Alabama. With a value system of spay and neuter, education, and adoption, Save a Stray launched a simple vision of decreasing the euthanasia rate of its local homeless animals.

In the year of its inception, Save a Stray launched its first "Spay Day" an event of free spay and neuters offered by local veterinarians.  The first Spay Day was a complete success with over 100 animals altered and has become a local favorite. It now involves multiple vet clinics as well as veterinarians throughout the state. This annual event continues to break records every year!

An all-volunteer organization, Save a Stray  has partnered with local pet stores and community events to showcase the wide variety ofadoptable cats, dogs and even a few horses, which has resulted in pairing the right families with their purrfect companions.

Facing a saturated market of homes with pets and an ever growing number of pets needing homes, Save a Stray sought a new solution.  This was actually simple: logistics. The South had a variety of adoptable dogs; the North had a multitude of wonderful homes.  With their desire to match these homes with their forever friends, Save a Stray established a relationship with Helping Hounds Dog Rescue in 2012.  With an in-house dream team to provide the transportation and an incredible volunteer and foster pool, Save a Stray successfully transports more than 500 dogs annually through this incredible program and partnership.

Save a Stray continues to educate the local population and most importantly the youth of Mobile about proper pet care and population control. Through school programs, Foster exposure and outreach education to at risk youth Save a Stray has made great strides in raising awareness for the future pet owners of Mobile.

Save a Stray is clearly making a difference in not only the lives of our local shelter pets but also those forever homes throughout the southeast and points north.  This all would be impossible without the efforts of an incredible group of volunteers.  The life blood of a foster based program, especially a successful monthly transport, is its foster families.  These amazing people are willing to open their hearts and homes to care for those furry babies transitioning from hopeless to heaven.  Save a Stray owes an ever increasing debt of gratitude to this awesome group of angels.

Friends 4 Pound Paws was established on May 30, 2011, by a group of concerned citizens, hoping to save the forgotten ones, our local pound dogs.   We began with a simple desire to “Give our pound dogs a second chance at life”

Our mission is to help promote adoption from the Gouverneur, Russell and Fowler Dog Pounds.   We have established a foster care program to help save the dogs that have been scheduled for euthanasia.  F4PP promotes spaying and neutering as a general ideal, and spays and neuters all dogs and cats that are of age at time of adoption, or enter into a neuter contract with the new adopting families..  

All our rescues receive immediate medical care, vaccinations and lots of love. 

We also accept owner surrenders of unwanted animals when we have open foster homes.  

F4PP currently has more than 200 members. 

With the compassion and support of our community and members, we believe our dream of a local Humane Society can be a reality.

DeWitt Animal Hospital in DeWitt, NY was established in 1956 as a full-service companion animal hospital. It is our commitment to provide quality veterinary care throughout the life of your pet. Our services and facilities are designed to assist in routine preventive care for young, healthy pets; early detection and treatment of disease as your pet ages; and complete medical and surgical care as necessary during his or her lifetime

We are the official shelter for the City of Syracuse. We receive animals through Syracuse Dog Control that may be lost or injured. We accept donations through Paypal to help care for these animals. We are not a 501(c)3 organization therefore donations are not tax deductible. No goods or services are exchanged for donations.

Nearly 100 of the stray dogs received are transferred to Helping Hound’s adoption program annually.   This partnership has greatly reduced the need to euthanize dogs for space and time. 

Fingerlakes Dog Protection Agency

Founded in 1988, Finger Lakes Dog Protection Agency is a not for profit dog protection agency with its primary business being dog control. Dogs that are not claimed by owners are up for adoption.

Before partnering with HHDR, the euthanasia rate for unclaimed and unadopted dogs was 40%.   The partnership with Helping Hounds has reduced that to only when medically or behaviorally necessary.
