Pets In Distress is an all volunteer run "no-kill" rescue group which takes in and places for adoption unwanted pets.
We do not have a shelter but operate as a foster network. This means that we rely solely on volunteers to provide
foster homes for our pets until they are permanently placed in adoptive homes.

1. Feral Cat TNR Program

Many communities are embracing Trap, Neuter, Release programs (TNR) to improve animal welfare, reduce death rates, and meet obligations to public welfare.

2. High-Volume, Low-Cost Spay/Neuter

Low cost, high volume spay/neuter will quickly lead to fewer animals entering the shelter system, allowing more resources to be allocated toward saving lives.

3. Rescue Groups

An adoption or transfer to a rescue group frees up scarce cage and kennel space, reduces expenses for feeding, cleaning, killing, and improves a community's rate of lifesaving. In an environment of millions of dogs and cats killed in shelters annually, rare is the circumstance in which a rescue group should be denied an animal.

4. Foster Care

Volunteer foster care is crucial to No Kill. Without it, saving lives is compromised. It is a low cost, and often no cost, way of increasing a shelter's capacity, improving public relations, increasing a shelter's public image, rehabilitating sick and injured or behaviorally challenged animals, and saving lives.

5. Comprehensive Adoption Programs

Adoptions are vital to an agency's lifesaving mission. The quantity and quality of shelter adoptions is in shelter management's hands, making lifesaving a direct function of shelter policies and practice. In fact, studies show people get their animals from shelters only 20% of the time. If shelters better promoted their animals and had adoption programs responsive to the needs of the community, including public access hours for working people, offsite adoptions, adoption incentives, and effective marketing, they could increase the number of homes available and replace killing with adoptions. Contrary to conventional wisdom, shelters can adopt their way out of killing.

6. Pet Retention

While some of the reasons animals are surrendered to shelters are unavoidable, others can be prevented-but only if shelters are willing to work with people to help them solve their problems. Saving animals requires communities to develop innovative strategies for keeping people and their companion animals together. And the more a community sees its shelters as a place to turn for advice and assistance, the easier this job will be.

7. Medical and Behavior Programs

In order to meet its commitment to a lifesaving guarantee for all savable animals, shelters need to keep animals happy and healthy and keep animals moving through the system. To do this, shelters must put in place comprehensive vaccination, handling, cleaning, socialization, and care policies before animals get sick and rehabilitative efforts for those who come in sick, injured, unweaned, or traumatized.

8. Public Relations/Community Involvement

Increasing adoptions, maximizing donations, recruiting volunteers and partnering with community agencies comes down to one thing: increasing the shelter's exposure. And that means consistent marketing and public relations. Public relations and marketing are the foundation of all a shelter's activities and their success. To do all these things well, the shelter must be in the public eye.

9. Volunteers

Volunteers are a dedicated "army of compassion" and the backbone of a successful No Kill effort. There is never enough staff, never enough dollars to hire more staff, and always more needs than paid human resources. That is where volunteers come in and make the difference between success and failure and, for the animals, life and death.

10. Proactive Redemptions

One of the most overlooked areas for reducing killing in animal control shelters are lost animal reclaims. Sadly, besides having pet owners fill out a lost pet report, very little effort is made in this area of shelter operations. This is unfortunate because doing so-primarily shifting from passive to a more proactive approach-has proven to have a significant impact on lifesaving and allow shelters to return a large percentage of lost animals to their families.

11. A Compassionate Director

The final element of the No Kill equation is the most important of all, without which all other elements are thwarted-a hard working, compassionate animal control or shelter director not content to regurgitate tired cliches or hide behind the myth of "too many animals, not enough homes." Unfortunately, this one is also oftentimes the hardest one to demand and find.

To whom it may concern: I currently have a 4 year old Red Nose Pit Bull named Scooby in need of a new home. Loving. Playful and full of energy. Loves to give hugs, very smart and loves getting a lot of attention. Housebroken, great companion. Not Aggressive, not raised to fight. Very loving and Gentle. He has been part of my family since he was 3 months old. Unfortunately, I work long hours and no longer able to take care of and give him proper attention. Not recommended for small children. He is not aware of his own strength, Recommended for anyone Good with Dogs who can walk him and play with him often. Other Important things to know about Scooby: • Does not like being left alone in the dark • Occasionally scared of thunder • Rarely given house food • Loves Can food but gives him the runs • Loves to play with a store bought big bone from Walmart, will chew it clean and keep it • Loves to play with his Big Red chew toy as well • Listens to common commands such as Sit, Go lay Down, Wait, Go get your Bone, Go get your toy, Where is it? – he will attempt to locate bone and/or toy and cry for help if he can’t get to it. • Scooby is not up-to-date with his shots • He is not micro-chipped • He has never been kept outdoors • He is an in-door dog • Does not do well with traditional toys re: Ropes-he will tear and start eating (not good for him) • Loves Rawhide but also not good for him-gives him the runs. • Dry food is best- Kibble and Bits, Gravy train without water • Loves Medium size Scooby snack (Bone shape) –will stand on hide legs to receive treat. I would greatly appreciate your help in finding him a new home. Please call me at 954-825-5195 (Cell Phone) and leave a message if I am not available; I will return your call as soon as possible.
