Our Mission

Our mission is to help the animals who cannot help themselves. Dogs come to us from shelters, impounds, and owner surrenders and receive the veterinary care and behavioral support they need to place them in permanent, loving homes. We collaborate with other rescues, veterinary clinics, and trainers to ensure the best placement for each dog, while also providing support and resources for families after adoption.

Adopt

New Leash Rescue holds adoption events most Saturdays at the Woodbury PetSmart. There are also several other events throughout the year so please check our calendar and follow us on Facebook for upcoming event notices.

Foster

We are greatly in need of more foster parents! There are many dogs waiting to come into rescue and the more fosters we have, the more we can help. Contact us today if you are able to foster!

Donate

All proceeds go to rescue, rehabilitation, and rehoming of dogs. Your donation can help us save pets in many ways! Consider a monthly donation to help us save more animals.

Why New Leash Rescue

New Leash Rescue was formed to assist dogs in need of care and placement in a loving home. We are a 100% non-profit 501c(3) organization dedicated to saving dogs from desperate situations that deserve a new leash on life! Follow us on Facebook!

Rescue

We drive our own vehicles to shelters and return with as many dogs as we can to start them on their road to freedom. Many times, you can look into their eyes and see that they know things are going to get better for them.

Rehabilitate

If a dog needs medical attention, extra time to understand they’re in a safe place, or simply better social skills, our team at NLR is up for the challenge. Each dog is individually assessed and cared for by our experienced team.

Homing

Any foster parent will tell you how wonderful it is to find the right home for the dog they've been caring for. They will also tell you it's tough to let them go! That's simply because our hearts are in the right place.

Educate

We are active in the communities we serve and participate in programs to help educate the public about dogs, rescue, and responsibilities. If you are looking for someone to participate in an educational event, please contact us.

Canines for the win!

"A fresh start." "A new beginning". "Happily ever after."

This is our favorite part. Sharing our triumphant success! We love to hear from the wonderful people who have adopted from New Leash Rescue and all about their new lives together. Please email us your New Leash Rescue success story.

Sweet little Max came from a southern rescue where they have more pups than then can find families. After bringing him up to New Leash Rescue, he found his new family and is living happily fur-ever after!
