Buckeye Bulldog Rescue is dedicated to rescuing homeless and abandoned English and French Bulldogs from high-kill shelters and owners who can no longer care for them. By working with committed volunteers, foster homes, veterinarians, and trainers, we are able to rehabilitate and rehome bulldogs in Ohio and its surrounding states by finding them well-matched, carefully screened forever homes. We also serve as a resource to our community by providing education and information on responsible pet ownership and what it takes to own a bulldog; one of the more expensive and high maintenance breeds.

Bull Barn Facility- pole barn structure to house incoming dogs until fosters are found.  As dogs enter our care, they often have medical/behavioral issues needing addressed so they cannot go directly to foster homes. Having a dedicated facility will allow us to save more dogs and avoid hefty boarding fees




Lily’s Pad Rescue facilitates care for medically fragile bulldogs in need of loving, accepting devotion. This can include hospice care for dogs at the end of their lives, transportation to and from foster and adoptive families, rehabilitation or rehome bulldogs when able, or be the last home on their life journey. We educate and advocate, providing information of injustices animals face at the hands of abusers, and replace cruelty with love, to make each day their best possible day.

The rescue has recently expanded our intake of senior dogs coming from the puppy mills of central Pennsylvania. We have partnered with a few local volunteers who are able to negotiate the release of these dogs who would otherwise be shot. With their help, we have grown our efforts in this area from two to 16 dogs in the last year and expect to see continued growth. These dogs have been kept in poor conditions, overbred, and received little to no veterinary care. When they come to the rescue, they need extensive vetting, and most need costly dental surgery.

Muttville’s “Seniors for Seniors” program brings older dogs and senior citizens together. Research has shown senior citizens enjoy many psychological and physiological benefits from living with a dog. Both as motivation for exercise and as snuggling companions on the sofa, older dogs make ideal companion animals for senior citizens. Our program makes it easier for seniors to adopt a dog: 1. Providing no-cost adoptions to senior citizens 2. Providing an adoption counselor trained to work with seniors 3. Offering a “Welcome Home” kit of food and helpful home modifications like doggie stairs 4. Making experts, including veterinary staff, always available to answer questions and concerns 5. Providing “peace of mind” that we’ll always take back a dog if the senior is no longer able to care for it. Almost a quarter of Muttville adoptions are with senior citizens.

Much Needed Help For Special Need's Medical Bills; We mostly care for special needs English bulldogs who have spinal bifida. We are a super small rescue group who does not have a whole lot of funds at our disposal. We cover all the costs associated with our foster dogs including training when needed, basic needs which can be very expensive when buying diapers, creams, wipes, suspenders, covers, drag bags, and medication to say the least. We do our very best to raise money for just the daily expense of our dogs that is always on going and never a cure. We don't have the option of a treatment plan, a light at the end of the tunnel. We are always on a rotating cost of basic daily needs to provide to our foster parents because we pay for everything. The goal of this grant would be as simple as giving us the ability to not have to use credit cards or care credit to cover the basic needs that most dogs do not have. Special need dogs are amazing pets and without organizations like us to pull them, most rescues would shy away from saving their lives. We truly take the unwanted. So when a medical issue comes up, we are put in a situation where we must rely on our care credit. We are at our max and need help paying this off. We do okay with small fundraisers but we just are not big enough to get the support and donations we need to care for our special need dogs.



Classic Canines is a 501c3 organization operated by volunteers who help displaced senior dogs (7 yrs and up) that have found their way into Austin area shelters, primarily the Austin Animal Center, the largest open intake municipality-operated no kill shelter in the US.  Our goal is simple,  get them home,  with less stops,  and a more direct path to a loving home, as quickly as possible.  In a celebrated no-kill town like Austin,  healthy and treatable animals can wait as long as needed to be adopted. Without continuous advocacy for senior dogs, many would simply be overlooked in favor of younger dogs. An average Classic will leave the shelter within 25-30 days with our help.

Many German Shepherds in shelters are deemed non adoptable because they are heartworm positive or have a traumatic injury or disease which all require extensive medical care. In almost two decades Austin German Shepherd Rescue has saved over 400 German Shepherds many of which had medical issues such as parvo, mange, heartworms, or orthopedic issues. Bringing these dogs back to health so they become adoptable requires significant veterinary expense and our biggest challenge is continuous funding for our WINGS (Welfare Intervention for Neglected German Shepherds) Program.

Muttville's Seniors for Seniors program facilitates human-dog interaction by making it easy for older adults to adopt a dog and by providing access to dogs if they’re unable to bring one home. Seniors for Seniors helps older adults adopt a dog in five ways: 1. Providing no-cost adoptions to senior citizens. 2. Providing an adoption counselor (who is trained to work with senior citizens) to identify a match that will be successful and rewarding for both the dog and senior. During this process, we advise each potential adopter (and members of their household) on the dog’s special health, dietary and exercise needs. 3. Offering a “Welcome Home” kit containing a month’s supply of food and medication, a dog harness, leash and bed, food and water bowls, and relevant home modifications (doggie stairs and gates) if needed. 4. Making experts, including veterinary staff, always available to answer questions and address potential concerns. 5. Providing peace of mind that Muttville will always take back one of our dogs if the adopter is no longer capable of caring for it. For those who can’t bring a dog into their homes, we open up our facility at "Cuddle Club" so senior citizens can come visit with our dogs, and spend an afternoon snuggling with our dogs or exploring the neighborhood on leisurely walks. Over the years, regular participants make new friendships and have a fun activity to look forward to. In 2017, we conducted 23 Cuddle Clubs.

House with a Heart Senior Pet Sanctuary
The Sanctuary’s Mission is to provide a “Helping Hand” for senior pets. For our residents, we are able to provide love, affection, and shelter. Many of these dogs receive medical care, such as diagnostic screenings, dental care, surgery, and medications, as needed. For other senior dogs, we provide a “Helping Hand” by getting the word out about their special needs, and encourage others to give them a forever home through our House with a Heart “Sanctuary of Your Own” program.

Saving Seriously Seniors - we are actively working with rescue partners by using our medical resources to provide special needs or seniors dogs medical treatment who might not otherwise get adopted. Often senior dogs have the most medical needs, and often the treatment is expensive. We have a special program called K-9 Medical Miracles. All of the money donated or raised by grants goes to that fund for rescue partner senior or special needs dogs. As a sanctuary, we do boarding to cover the expense of our forever residents,. This program is our way to help more since our sanctuary is at capacity.

Whispering Willows Senior Dog Sanctuary, Inc. is not your traditional rescue. Although we are a 501(c)(3) and are state animal licensed, all dogs who pass through our doors enter into our family. We are a home-based, cage-free facility where our seniors live openly as a pack. When seniors come here, they gain an entire family which helps them through the transition. There are several different reasons why a dog may come to live here: their owner passes or moves into a nursing home, extreme life circumstances, shelter transfers. Seniors will live out their life at the sanctuary with this being their last home.
