  • No shelter—Instead of a shelter with visiting hours, Rawhide Rescue has a network of foster homes to house those dogs that are awaiting adoption.

I adopted a dog from Rawhide Rescue about a year ago and it has turned out to be the sweetest, kindest dog I have ever owned. The dog was originally placed in a kill shelter in North Carolina and then Rawhide had it transported to NJ. With all the millions of unwanted dogs in shelters and being fostered by such groups as Rawhide, you really have to ask yourself why anyone would patronize a breeder.
