Review for DALMATIAN RESCUE OF TAMPA BAY INC, Eastsound, WA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Dalmatian Rescue of Tampa Bay is a small group of dedicated volunteers working together to save at-risk (of euthanasia) Dalmatians and Dal-mixes in the state of Florida and other southern states when possible. No one receives compensation for their efforts and the group relies on donations to make it happen. DRTB averages 90 saves in a year with ~65 annual adoptions... the rest become care-for-life. Since we save many senior dogs abandoned by their owners and give them comfort and care until they reach a more natural end (based upon a normal life-span & health issues), a good number of dogs remain in DRTB's care through the use of foster homes. The group is very dedicated to the dogs and seeks to provide the best care that they can that will allow a dog to become adoptable.

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

Everything I now know about rescue and the need for all kinds of rescues i have learned here... every day is a new opportunity.

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?

The success of turning a dog's life around and finding them a home filled with love & respect is the highest of highs and sustains me through the despair of knowing we can't save them all.
