Iowa Basset Rescue with our sponcers

Did you know that everyday thousands of dogs cats puppies and kittens are killed in animal control shelters. Due to over breeding and those who do not spay or neuter shelters are over flowing with animals that are doomed. Some are killed via gas chambers which can take up to 30 minutes of pure hell before they die, others are put down using lethal injection while some endure the heart stick. The heart stick is a practice where a person stabs the animal in the heart with a needle. Most of the time it doesn't work as the person misses because the animal is still fully conscience and trying to get away. They should be sedated before this is administered, but that doesn't happen.. I am sure you can imagine how horrible it can be for the animals who go through this torture.

Please take the time to visit the site to left to see pets that are currently facing death right now.

Also check out the great dogs available from rescues below. Many of them were rescued from kill shelters and now need homes.

You may not think that rescuing one dog from the shelter makes a difference when so many are killed, but just know it makes a huge difference to the one you adopted.
