Louise has dedicated the last 16 years volunteering full-time to saving dog’s lives by working with rescue groups to help pull adoptable animals out of the shelters, nurse them to health and find them safe, loving forever homes. She has personally rescued thousands of dogs from being euthanized, and their household is constantly filled with a number of foster dogs.
Together, Marty and Louise explained the challenges facing pet shelters, the adoption process, and what rescue groups around the country are doing to help. They discussed the struggle to alter public misconceptions about “rescue dogs” and the need to raise awareness about the state of government run shelters around the country, many of which are overcrowded, underfunded, and poorly managed. It was a very powerful and emotional conversation that opened our team's eyes to some of the harsh realities of pet over population, and further strengthened our mission to do more.
What We Hope to Accomplish with our Rescue Page
Members of the ZUUL Labs team learned a lot from listening to Marty and Louise and the stories they shared, and wanted to share some of them with the world. While our game subtly hints at the merits of dog rescue and responsible pet ownership, we want to also raise awareness about why we are doing what we do.
Now we have added a page to our website called, “Rescue” where we will share information about dog rescue, pet adoption, and “What Rescue Means to Us.”
Every week, this section will be updated with new pictures and real stories of dog rescue. If you have a story to tell about your experience with dog rescue, or a great before and after to share, we would love to hear it and feature it on our website! We also ask that you share this link with your family, friends, and any other dog lovers you know to help raise awareness about adopting these loveable rescue animals that can be such a blessing for both you and your rescued pet, bringing an immense joy to your and your family!
How We Want to Help Rescue Groups
In addition, we will also be devoting a portion of our site to promoting pet rescue groups across the country. Most of these groups are comprised of volunteers with little to no funding, relying solely on the support of people like you and us.
If you are involved in an animal rescue group or organization , please reach out to us, and let us know how we can help to promote and share your efforts.
