Larry:

Of course you forget some. And they happen to be more experienced and reputable then some of the others you have listed. I have to believe you know who they are but possibly choose not to list them. The ones you didn't list are all very dedicated to the breed and have dedicated many, many years to helping chows.

We don't need a sticky for Chow rescues, Chowchow Welfare has a great list and Petfinder has them listed also we all know the URL's. People that know Chows should already know where just about every rescue in the US is or at lest know where the Chow rescues are in their city and state. If new people are looking for Chows that's what Chows needing homes and looking for Chows section is for or we know were the rescue near them are.

Larry,

I think it is nice you are starting a list for this site. No one else has thought of it. Proceed and those you have left out, please just add it on. Hopefully members will provide you with their URL's (or URL's of rescues they have adopted their chows from) so you can do so.

I know I could do this, but would prefer you to make the addition on your post. Although they are not chow specific, please list Rocket Dog Rescue (rocketdogrescue.org). Also include Chow Rescue Ontario (http://www.petfinder.com/shelters/ON67.html). That is Monica's rescue site. Monica is one of the oldies of this site that has devoted her time to chow rescue.

Thank you.

What's your point Jeff? That link and this thread are two different concepts. Larry's thread is about rescue sites not places where you can donate money to for the holidays. If someone comes on this site and is looking for chow rescue to either place their chow or adopt, this thread is a list of such rescues. Not to mention again, no one else has thought of making a list of strickly chow specific rescues for this site. So instead of being adversarial and cranky, just help out.

The list is a great Idea but its how its being used. No problem its your site, run it your way. Sydney said about the same thing I did and I think thats your point.

Thank you Zhuyos Mom,

What I did was search the site for members that are Rescues. I did ask if I missed any and received a PM and then added Monica's site. This list started off as a members rescue list but adding the non members is great idea.

Sydney,

If you have a list you would like to see listed please let me know it would be a bit more helpful. Are you a rescue I left off?

One of the things that I have found with rescues is that some prefer not to work with others for what ever reason. Yes TLC is a young rescue, only a year old. That is to our advantage as we have not developed any preconceived notions about other rescues. I can not believe people would go through all the work and heartache to be rescue with the intent of harming Chow's or other people.

I never intentionally left rescues of my list. As stated the list started off as "Members" and now is evolving.

Some of the rescues posted need up dating.

Eastern Iowa Chow Rescue is now Andrea Martin(one of my former adopters who became enthused about rescue)...she lived in Bettendorf IA when she took over EICR upon my moving to MN......she has since moved to Oquawka in western IL, but retains the petfinder site name as Eastern IA. Jim Dearth helps out when he can, but is no longer a partner in EICR.....he does a little independent rescue and also transports or fosters for the rest of us when we have an emergency.
Vicki DeGruy in WI is head of the welfare committee of the national chow club but no longer actively rescues. She does keep statistics and also owns the chowrescue@yahoogroups.com e-list and manages the chowwelfare.com site. You might cc Vicki in any messages to a board on new purebred(only) chows that you see in shelters or hear about that need a home. That way she can keep more accurate statistics. Her email address is vicki@chowwelfare.com

Well, Sydney is katann. How about Alane Pacine out of joliet illinois? I think what you are looking for are active rescues if I am not mistaken. Last I heard Teri's rescue was full in PA. She is a fabulous lady, and has the right attitude to be in rescue.

Yes, Teri is a great person. We got Molly from her rescue. I think she does have a lot of dogs. I don't think it says they are not taking any more chows on her website though, like it did awhile ago.
