American Dog Rescue is a great organization, especially when the founder, Arthur Benjamin, goes above and beyond. Arthur is a man who loves animals and who, through his individual efforts and through those of American Dog Rescue, has set out to make a difference in this world for others.

Amazing network that this group has created for dog lovers throughout. Informing, providing volunteer opportunities, and raising awareness for both the mistreatment and proper treatment of animals, this community is growing fast and American Dog Rescue is a fantastic way to be a part of it. A simple and effective way of making the world a better place! Great!

I am a senior in college in Dallas, Texas and thanks to American Dog Rescue I received a scholarship stipend which allowed me to intern for a local dog rescue organization which American Dog Rescue helps fund. I have seen first hand the amount of dogs they have saved just in our group. No matter what a rescue asks in adoption fees there is never enough funding to cover all expenses. American Dog Rescue recognizes the need for parent companies to help grass roots organizations. They say "no healthy dog without a home" and they mean it! Thanks to ADR innumerable dogs are safe in no-kill foster homes and adopted into thoroughly screened forever homes! I am so lucky I got the opportunity to watch a true non-profit agency in action.

American Dog Rescue is an outstanding organization focused on helping dogs and other animals in need throughout the United States, as well as globally. Recent initiatives include ADR's Facebook fan page initiative to raise more than $5,000 for animal victims in Joplin, MO and the reuniting of U.S. soldiers with their "dogs of war" from Afghanistan. Though these special programs are shining examples, they barely begin to scratch the surface of the important work Arthur E. Benjamin and American Dog Rescue do. A true top-notch non-profit that is all about the animals.

American Dog Rescue is an amazing organization. Nowzad Dogs reunites soldiers and the strays that they befriended in Afghanistan and Iraq. They also spend resources to educate and promote animal welfare in these countries. That alone would be enough, but they do so much more. Smiling Dog Farms moto is "If a dog is breathing, he qualifies to come live here!"

I am associated with one of the many Rescues that ADR services. When we get in pups with special needs or that need a little extra care and understanding ADR is the first place we go. They are always so generous with their time, contacts, expertise and yes of course financial support. There are many babies we could not have saved without their help.

American Dog Rescue is a wonderful organization. Their "motto" says it all - No Healthy Dog Without a Home. I've donated several times to this organization and I know the money was well used. Recently they helped bring several dogs over from Afghanistan to reunite them with soldiers. I love this non-profit!

I have been a colleague in cooperative rescue efforts with American Dog Rescue as well as a fortunate recipient of the generosity they have extended to my dog rescue organization. American Dog Rescue helps countless animal rescue organizations nationwide and internationally; their tireless efforts have saved thousands of lives of animals who cannot speak for themselves! There seems to be no effort too large to prevent ADR from offering whatever is feasible, especially when so many financial resources have been tapped. Arthur Benjamin and this organization exemplify true philanthropy, generosity of spirit and genuine love for creatures great and small!

I applaud this group for their work with our soldiers and veterans for reuniting them with their service dogs from over seas once they return home. As well as rescuing animals from the war zone.

I can't even begin to express my deep and heartfelt gratitude for ADR in helping me with my Italian Greyhound, Lannee, who I rescued. I adopted Lannee, who WAS blinded by cataracts..I knew by Lannee's spirit and courage that she needed her sight back. I contacted many organizations and the only one who who responded to my plea for assistance was the founder of ADR. With the help of ALL at ADR, Lannee had her cataract surgery. Lannee is a different girl now..she runs, she jumps....she explores..it is truly a beautiful sight! I have never experienced such compassion and kindness as I have from all those who helped Lannee at ADR.. What a wonderful organization and how comforting to know that prayers really can be answered!

American Dog Rescue I believe ranks in the top 5 for helping rescue dogs and from there they then get the dogs adopted. They are true to their mission. And a delight to follow on their FB page (American Dog Rescue) which shares their many rescues plus good advice on dogs. Don't forget that the head of ADR (what a passion he has) of this nonprofit is helping our military in bringing home rescue dogs from the Middle East. You can't help but love these peopel. They are truly Dog's Best Friend

The passion from the founder is seen throughout the entire organization. They stand by their mission and genuinely care about dogs. They give current dog owners tips to help their dogs lead better and happier lives. They bring awareness to current conditions surrounding animals, but offer ways to help.

I've been working with American Dog Rescue since June of 2011, and I can tell you this organization is working tirelessly to fulfill its mission of "No Healthy Dog Without A Home." My first experience with the organization was just after the Joplin, Missouri, tornado when ADR rescued a dog - Laila - and later raised and donated thousands of dollars to Missouri animal victims. There are countless, personal stories of abused and neglected dogs being saved and placed in good homes, funds being allocated for expensive surgeries so dogs can live a normal life, and the unforgettable reunion of Afghan dogs of war with American soliders that befriended and cared for them while stationed overseas. I feel blessed to have witnessed such tremendous accomplishments in such a short period of time. Thank you to American Dog Rescue and its founder Arthur E. Benjamin - a tireless animal welfare advocate!
