Beware rescues that pose as non-profit but are just money makers. New legislations and ads for Adopt-Don't Shop, have made running a rescue a profitable business. Many of the dogs are purchased at auctions from brokers and puppy mills, then resold as "rescue". Also, diseases from "imports" are an issue that threaten U.S. dogs health. Local shelters or AKC breed club referral rescues are your best source.
