ResQ Animal Coalition is a small, non-profit rescue dedicated to saving lives. We believe strongly that a rescue should not only be a shelter to unwanted animals waiting for homes, but also strive to save the lives of those in our community who are suffering through neglect and abuse. To that end, we have been the driving force that has shut down several puppy mills and also we have been the voice to publicly expose those who we believe are abusing animals in our community. To read about our efforts and view news clips, please visit our "news" section in the left hand side menu and also our facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/resqac.org. Here you will see the horrible conditions that more than 50 schnauzers had to live in and the rescue that resulted from our knowledge of that situation. Also, read of our efforts to help several large parrots that are kept in an outside aviary at a local restaurant in deplorable conditions. If you would like to help us in continuing these efforts please consider volunteering if you are local or donating.
Consider the meaning of the word "rescue":
We are not just a shelter; we are a "rescue" in the true meaning of the word!

Here is a wonderful poem that one of our fosters wrote, for the dog she adopted from us (see "Chula" under our successes section):
My name is Chula and breeding was my game,
Every 6 months my puppies came...,
and then went;
and this Chihuahua girl was spent.
Along came ResQ and carried me away you see,
They took me home for a rest,
And I was careful not to be a pest.
I took a trip to the vet
For a special operation so I could just be a pet.
I stayed in ResQ for some time,
And a Foster Mom took one look at me
And said there is a girl I want to see.
So ResQ packed me up and drove me there,
And my Foster Mom wondered how I would fare.
I wasn't sure of this place where I came,
Everything was loud and new and strange.
I hid in my little cave,
And under the bed I stayed.
With time and care I ventured farther each day,
And made friends with my new animal family.
There is Morgan and Rosie, both dogs like me,
And Happi the big cat,
And her little gray friend Izzy who was rescued out of a tall
and that's that....
My Foster Mom decided that since I was so sweet,
That no more families would I meet.
I'm here to stay and have fun on my new turf
I call this place My Heaven on Earth!
