During 2015 SPDR was contacted about 815 purebred dogs needing new homes. Boston Terriers were number one again this year with 211 dogs reported. Doberman Pinschers were the second with 130 and Golden Retrievers third with 85 dogs reported. Our Breed Representatives work very hard to find homes for as many dogs as they can. Many have organized a great team of volunteers and foster homes that support them in the rescue of their breed. Much of their success can also be attributed to having generous donors and being able to raise money to help dogs with special medical or behavioral needs. If you would like to help SPDR support your favorite breed, go to the “Help SPDR” page on our website and donate.
A very heart-felt thank you goes to all the dedicated Breed Reps, Co-Reps, Foster Homes and the many other volunteers who helped SPDR continue to serve its mission. Not only are these statistics an important educational tool for the public, they are an excellent testimony to the success of our organization as a whole.
