SusieQ Dog ResQ has a mission to rescue needy and unwanted dogs and keep them in our home until a home of their own can be found. The rescue was started in 2006 after volunteering to do animal rescue in New Orleans as a result of Hurricane Katrina. It was there I met a little puppy that was found in the rubble on the streets and I couldn't leave without her. Upon returning home I knew that saving animals was what I wanted to do with the rest of my life and my husband agreed to help.
We became a 501c3 not-for-profit corporation in 2007 and have found homes for many dogs, puppies, cats, kittens and even a few ducks (and a swan!!!).
Originally named Another Chance Rescue Ranch we changed our name to SusieQ Dog ResQ in 2012, but our mission hasn't changed. Our most important goal is to save lives and find the best possible homes for the animals. We work very hard to accomplish this.
We don't have a facility. All of our rescues live with us like one of the family until their own home is found.
We have met so many sweet, gracious, deserving pets over the years. We try to give back the love and trust they put in us by finding them a better life than where they came from. I have fallen in love with my FOSTER FURRIES over the years and although it is always hard to let them go, just thinking of the next one needing to be saved helps me continue. Our foster animals are only a small portion of the many that need saving from shelters, euthanization, puppy mills, and uncaring owners. Pet overpopulation is a huge worldwide problem. Some people may say one person can’t make a difference but I know that we at SusieQ Dog ResQ, along with our adopters and volunteers, have made a difference to many animals now enjoying life in a loving family.
Can you make a difference? Yes!!
Spread the news about adopting rescued animals and how important it is to spay and neuter your pets. Consider fostering, there are simply not enough homes for all the pets being born. Never adopt from a pet store no matter how cute the puppies are, their parents most likely live in horrific conditions in puppy mills. No reliable dog breeder would ever sell their puppies to a pet shop.
Make having a pet a lifelong commitment. Love them forever.
