Big Dog to the Rescue
How many pet parents take for granted that their pets live in a safe environment where they are wanted and loved?
There are 6-8 million dogs housed in shelters every year. Big Dog Ranch Rescue is a unique no-kill 28-acre safe haven for homeless and unwanted dogs of all breeds and sizes. Located in Wellington, Florida, their mission is to provide shelter, care and affection to these furry friends so they can be adopted out to loving human companions.
In support of those objectives, Big Dog Ranch Rescue also:
• Promotes animal welfare and proper care of animals
• Celebrates the special bond between dogs and people through education, awareness and community outreach
• Adopts out 30 dogs per week into loving homes
Many people think rescue animals have something wrong with them, are victims or sick, but most are simply abandoned a variety of reasons or strays found wandering around.
The Big Dog Ranch Rescue is featured in the special Designing Spaces™ “Pet Spaces of Hope – Adopt A Shelter” where with help from “Designing Spaces”, a host of sponsors - Kent Nutrition Group, Heska Corp., Spectrum Labs, and Leading Edge Veterinary Equipment - and dedicated staff members Megan Weinberger and Lauree Simmons from BDRR receives a makeover and much-needed supplies.
