Here are ten nonprofit dog rescue groups that stand out and deserve your charitable donation.

1. Hope for the paws

You’ve probably seen some of the amazing Hope For Paws rescue videos on YouTube, and we regularly point them to DogTime because we couldn’t be happier and more in awe of their work.

They take suffering animals – often from abuse, neglect or injury – off the streets and provide them with medical care. They also strive to find forever homes for these animals.

If you haven’t seen what they are doing yet, check out some of their videos and bring some tissues because you are likely going to burst into tears.

The American Pit Bull Foundation works to educate and change the perception and stereotypes surrounding Pit Bulls. They want the public to see that these dogs deserve to be loved despite the way they are typically portrayed in the media.

3. Unlimited animal assistance

Animal Aid Unlimited was founded by a family from Seattle who moved to India. They have seen animals suffering in the streets, but there are very few animal hospitals in India. So they founded Animal Aid Unlimited, and the organization quickly grew.

They take animals in need of medical care off the streets and provide them with the care they need. Most of the treatments they provide are for minor injuries or illnesses, but you can see some of their more extreme cases on YouTube. Although they are based in India, they accept donations from the United States.

JARR also offers several programs to benefit the community. They provide assistance to low-income families with pets, people displaced by natural disasters, victims of abuse, the elderly, etc. Drop by if you’re ever in Napa Valley and give them a hello from DogTime!

Muttville Senior Dog Rescue is dedicated to finding homes or palliative care for older dogs in need of assistance. They are also disseminating information to the public about senior dogs and working to change the perception of old puppies as unwanted, a perception that leads many seniors to reprimand instead of being adopted.

Older dogs are often the first to be euthanized in shelters to make room for more puppies and young adoptable dogs, but Muttville is seeing owners returning for their second or third senior dog. Their success stories are truly heartwarming.
