Our Impact on the Fargo-Moorhead Community

Our Impact on the Fargo-Moorhead Community

Every few seconds, a homeless animal is euthanized in the United States. That is a whopping 360+ dogs in 24 hours!
4 Luv of Dog Rescue is dedicated to rescuing and re-homing dogs before they become another grim statistic. Sadly, the number of dogs in local pounds has increased steadily over the past three years. The number of dogs euthanized had been relatively stable until 2008 when there was a 23% decrease. So far in 2009, the number euthanized has decreased even more. We firmly believe that this decrease is due to the number of dogs we have rescued and we are determined to see the number drop even more.
We do not discriminate based on a dog’s breed, age, size or possible medical issue. All dogs are treated equally and every effort is put forth to provide needed veterinary care and to find a new “forever” home for the dogs. Our rescue has had a major impact on the homeless dog population in the greater Fargo-Moorhead area. We have saved over 335 dogs since July of 2008. So far this year(*2009) alone, we have adopted out over 240 dogs, an average of 24 per month. Without our rescue group, most of these pets would no longer be alive, let alone thriving in a new home.
In addition to rescuing and re-homing dogs, we strive to help educate the community on proper pet care, the value of training and socialization, the importance of spaying and neutering and the danger of unfounded breed discrimination.
Along with details about the available dogs taken in by our rescue, upcoming events and volunteer opportunities, a variety of informational pet care tips and links to other resources can be found on our website. We encourage you to explore our website and learn more about us.

About 4luvofdog

We are a 100% Volunteer run, non-profit organization dedicated to rescuing and rehoming dogs. ~2013: We are proud that we accepted into our rescue 109 dogs from local pounds last year. That is in addition to the 107 dogs from various regional pounds and the 174 owner surrenders that we took in. We also took in 71 dogs from the Wheatland puppy mill, and had 47 dogs born in the rescue. That’s a total of 508 dogs! In 2013 4 Luv of Dog Rescue adopted out 495 dogs! We are based in Fargo, North Dakota. All of our dogs are in foster homes, our facility, or are being cared for at local boarding facilities. When accepting a dog into our rescue program we will not discriminate based on breed, age, size or medical condition. All dogs will be treated equally and every effort will be put forth to find the dog a new home. In order for us to continue saving the lives of dogs, we must have the foster home and monetary resources to care for them. Please consider helping us to save these dogs by becoming a foster home or making a monetary donation. With your help, together we can make a difference in the lives of these unfortunate homeless dogs. We receive NO government funding and rely upon grants, fundraising and your generous donations to pay our expenses. Thank you!
