Journey Home Dog Rescue is a volunteer-based IRS 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that began in the summer of 2005 with a rescue mission to Louisiana following Hurricane Katrina. Their immediate goals at that time were to transfer as many dogs as possible out of “high-kill” dog pounds in the region into a temporary “no-kill” shelter and transport as many dogs as possible back to Maine for re-homing
Today, their organization continues to be committed to arranging a “journey home” for local surrenders as well as for dogs in shelters that they have partnered with. They work to find permanent homes or foster care, transport as needed and provide veterinary care. Journey Home Dog Rescue often supports southern shelters because of the pet overpopulation crisis and extremely high euthanization rate in that region. They believe that compassion has no borders and we are committed to creating a more humane world for all.
