We started researching dog rescues and shelters over 18 years ago before we found our first pup, Linus at the Carson Animal Shelter.
Our search for a rescue dog was in the Los Angeles and Orange County areas of Southern California.
Today, we’re sharing information from the other side of the United States. We bring you our list of shelters and dog rescues in Rochester, NY.
UPDATE: This post was originally published on MyDogLikes on April 12th, 2018. We recently updated and republished here on PuppyInTraining.com.
