About

We are so excited to tell you that Grass Roots Rescue just got IRS approval of our 501(c)(3) status.  This is especially wonderful because some shelters will only allow rescue groups with 501(c)(3) status to pull animals.  Also, it means that your donations are tax deductible.

Grass Roots Rescue has taken in more than 110 dogs and cats since our founding in August 2013. In addition, we have provided the funds for veterinary care of 50 animals in the community through our program to provide medical care for feral cats and the pets of people with limited income.  All this is possible because of the support we have received from our friends and the community.  We wanted to take a moment to say thank you. In order to continue to do what we do, we need everyone’s help. You can help in many ways…fostering, adopting, and/or making a donation.  Thank you !

olive 6GRR was founded in August 2013 with two primary objectives: 1) Pull dogs and cats at risk in animal shelters and get them adopted. 2) Spay/neuter and provide life-saving veterinary care for dogs and cats at animal shelters & other rescues and in the community.

GRR is operated completely by volunteers.  There are no employees and no compensation for the directors on the board.   Private veterinarians and/or animal hospitals provide medical care for dogs and cats and spay/neuter.  Of course, we search for discounts and special clinics whenever possible.

kittens togetherGRR volunteers foster, transport animals to the vet and handle all fundraising and administrative activities.  We are committed to minimizing our costs so we can save as many lives as possible.  We would love to have your help –  tell us about what activities interest you on our contact form.

    Here we go again. My father Robert is now very interested in a dog. You were kind enough to phone 2 weeks ago about Maggie a hound. He has been trying to replace his dog a German Sheppard who he got through his sister who house trains seeing eye/lead dogs. This has not been succesfull. We have a mutual friend Katie, in fact I think we have met on serveral occasions.

    You can call my father Bob (Robert) at 302-644-1494. He needs a well trained fairly docile dog. My father is 83 and needs the dog to walk several times a day. We live at Cape Shores in Lewes with no back yard but live right across from the beach. Him and my mother Francis miss there dog and need the companionship. I live at the house and help to look after them and their dog.

    Again the phone number is 302-644-1494

    Thank you for all you do.

    A vacuum cleaner is the most reliable of cleaning tools; it can be the more
    costly. There are various sorts of hoover with various characteristics.
    Therefore prior to purchasing a top-rated vacuum
    cleaner ensure you understand what sort of vacuum cleaner is
    most appropriate to your requirements.

    Selecting the finest vacuum-cleaner could be confounding.
    To make issues better you should know what
    the different kinds of hoover are, what the chief attributes
    you’re able to find on a hoover, and need
    you kind of flooring you’re going to be
    employing a vacuum-cleaner on.
