A new awesome website is under construction, but until then, this will have to do!
Grass Roots Rescue was founded in 2013 with 3 main objectives:
1, Rescue dogs and find them their forever home.
2. Spay/neuter and provide life-saving veterinary care for rescued dogs and cats.
3. When funds allow, we also provide vet care for the pets of people with limited income.
Since August of 2013 we have managed to rescue over 700 animals. We have found that we feel very drawn to take on the mis-fits and uncertain medical needs cases. We have an amazing group of people who cheer us on and we are very grateful for what GRR has turned / is turning into.
One of the main questions that we are asked is where our building is located. Our rescue is completely foster based which means all of our dogs are in foster homes all over Delaware (and even some parts of Maryland). We pride ourselves in maintaining smaller numbers because we are able to give you detailed information and accurate assessments on the pets you are looking in to adopting.
The goal for the rest of 2017 and into 2018 is to throw down some roots and get an adoption center. We have amazed ourselves at the number of animals we have been able to help over the past 4 years . (you can see some of them on our Adopted archives page) The 5 year plan is to have some land with a sanctuary but until that happens, we have managed to outgrow our initial strictly foster based vision. We are on the hunt for a small place for GRR to call home.
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.
GRR 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 – If interested in volunteering, please e-mail us and request to be added to our Volunteer Group.
Last but certainly not least, our animals for adoption are posted regularly on GRR’s Facebook page. You can see the page, even if you don’t do Facebook by checking this web site’s sidebar at right of our Facebook postings. Also, we try to send out posts to subscribers as often as we can. And of course, you can always contact us: Brittaniclegg@gmail.com
