Rescue groups exist for most types of pet—for example, rabbit rescue or bird rescue, but are most common for dogs
and cats. For animals with many breed types, many rescue groups specialize in specific breeds or groups of breeds.
For example, for dogs, there might be local Labrador Retriever rescue groups, hunting dog rescue groups, large-
dog rescue groups, as well as general dog rescue groups. Widely recognized as an umbrella organization for animal
rescue groups, Petfinder.org is an online, searchable database of more than 13,000 shelters and adoption
agencies across the United States, Canada and Mexico. The American Kennel Club maintains a list of contacts,
primarily within breed clubs, that will provide information on breed rescue groups for purebred dogs in the United
Animal shelters often work closely with rescue groups, because shelters that have difficulty placing otherwise
healthy and pet-worthy animals would usually rather have the animal placed in a home than euthanized; while the
shelters might run out of room, rescue groups can often find more volunteers with space in their homes for
temporary placement. Some organizations (such as Young at Heart Pet Rescue, www.yahpetrescue.org and Old
Dog Haven) work with older animals whose age would likely cause them to be euthanized in county pounds.

Aside from rescuing animals, the ASPCA is also involved with disaster preparedness and management. For
instance, prior to Hurricane Gustav making landfall in Louisiana on September 1, 2008, the ASPCA checked in
more than 800 animals into a shelter located in Shreveport. The ASPCA, along with the American Humane
Association, maintained a 24 hour presence at the shelter.
The ASPCA works primarily with companion animal issues, such as pet care, equine or horse cruelty issues, and
animal cruelty and neglect. Their programs and services include: a national poison control hotline for pet owners
and animal health professionals; a shelter outreach program to promote best practices within locally owned
shelters, a corporate partner program to promote animal-friendly products and services, and a special
anti-cruelty initiative to teach animal welfare education and animal welfare law enforcement practices (known as
"humane law enforcement" within the organization) across the United States. In the state of New York, the
ASPCA's Humane Law Enforcement division has powers to investigate cruelty and enforce laws. The Humane
Law Enforcement division has been featured on the Animal Planet television program, Animal Precinct.
Additionally, the ASPCA provides relief services for the domestic animal victims of natural disasters such as
Hurricane Katrina, where the National Outreach department collected donations to provide supplies; coordinated
volunteer efforts; deployed rescue teams to recover abandoned pets; provided temporary shelter to displaced
animals; and reunited pets with their owners.
