My husband was looking for a dog for me, as he thought it would help my anxiety issues. He came across Multiple Breed Rescue in December 2015 when he was searching for a Yorkie mix. He immediately contacted MBR, who had a Yorkie/Jack Russell Terrier Mix for adoption. Everyone involved was so kind and helpful and we ended up adopting Josie about a week later. Unfortunately, Josie has gone on to the Rainbow Bridge, but since then we have adopted 2 other rescues from MBR and they are both wonderful dogs. Multiple Breed Rescue has made such an impact on us that we volunteer our time as a family to help out with the dogs as needed and are hoping to foster one day soon as well. They really are with you for the life of your dog and they treat you like family. The owner, Amy, is always ready to help and has offered us great advice about our dogs. I highly recommend looking into their adoptable dogs if you are looking for a furry companion. This is a great rescue that truly loves these dogs.

We were finally ready to get another dog, after losing our previous pet to cancer seven years earlier. We have 4 children and needed a dog that is easy going, friendly with kids, and low maintenance. Multiple Breed Rescue knew Bandit was the perfect dog for us. We adopted him in March of 2014, and he has been the perfect dog for us. He is so sweet and loves life! We will continue to use MBR in the future for connecting our family with the perfect dog.

We found our puppy Fred through Multiple Breed Rescue. He came into our lives at the perfect time. He brought so much light into our lives and gave his older brother Gino so much life and energy. Multiple Breed took the time
To get to know us as well as informed us so much about there rescue. 4 years later they are still apart of our lives. They are such a caring organization that truly goes above and beyond! We are so grateful to have found Multiple Breed Rescue and our pup Fred.

We adopted our 2 dogs from this wonderful rescue! I would encourage anyone looking to adopt a healthy puppy or dog to check out the MBR website. They are very caring and they make sure the right dog goes to the right family. Amy and all the volunteers are great!

I had fostered for MBR in 2008. I wasn’t looking for another dog at the time, but soon had my first “foster fail”. I still have Maggie today and I couldn’t love her any more.
Every one at MBR is 100% dedicated to the welfare of all the animals they take in. I wished every one I met had the empathy and compassion for animals that they do.

About 11 years ago I realised I needed a little something extra in my life and decided that fostering a dog was helping and doing something good for a dog in need. I had fostered for another rescue before finding MBR. I reached out to MBR because I already had two dogs and lived in a small house so I was looking for a small breed dog to foster. My first foster with MBR was a pure bred JRT male. He was beautiful. He loved to play with balls. I decided to call him Eddie while he was staying with me. I had grown very fond of Eddie and was considering adopting him myself when I got the call that he had been adopted by a young woman with other JRT’s. Eddie instantly fell in love with her and I knew I was doing the right thing for him by giving him to a good home.
Then it was time for another foster. She was also a JRT. She was not potty trained, very shy, had many many fears, and just seemed very withdrawn. I spent many hours, days and weeks working with her trying to build up confidence. Teaching her to go potty outside. And not fear absolutely everything. Slowly, I was growing attached to her as it had been nearly a month that I had been caring for her. I was told that she had someone interested in her, but then they changed their mind. I knew I could never let her go, and right then decided to add her to my now growing dog family of three. I’ve never regretted my decision, in fact I couldn’t be happier. Maggie is still a part of our family. She is a very happy 12 yr. old little girl with more spunk and spitfire than ever. And today, I don’t think there is anything she fears, except maybe a bad thunderstorm.
Fostering for me was very rewarding. I enjoyed every minute of it. I enjoyed all the dogs I got to meet and care for. And I especially enjoyed the one I got to keep.

We adopted Captain on 10/30/16 after we had to help our dog of 11 years cross the Rainbow Bridge! They are the most amazing group of people and their love for animals shows in EVERYTHING they do! I loved everything about them so much, I quickly asked if I could become a volunteer for them! Best decision I have ever made! If you're looking to help a pup find their furever home, look no further!

I have adopted two shorty jacks from Multiple Breed Rescue, two years apart. What I love about this rescue is how much time and effort they take to ensure a perfect match. For our first Jack, I asked for a 4H dog for my young daughter to train and one that was happy to sit in your lap. She recommended Emma who was exactly what we asked for. Two years went by and I wanted to get into dog agility and came back again asking for a shorty Jack that she felt would be a good agility candidate, and she recommended Beanie. Beanie is a very accomplished agility dog, earning MACH2 and is still the 3rd fastest Russell Terrier in AKC agility in the entire country. My dogs are now 12 and 14 years old and I am thankful every day for this rescue. I have followed them all these years and so impressed with this organization.

We have adopted two dogs from MBR over the years and we have adopted another dog from a different rescue. I can say that the quality of care, compassion and just overall experience I had with MBR was exceptional compared to the other rescue. My MBR dogs are now 8 and 10 years old, yet Amy Hunt who heads up the rescue still follows up and cares about all the dogs she has rescued and re-homed over the years. MBR knows their dogs, gets to know their applicants so they can find a good match that is best for the applicant and best for the dog. This organization truly cares for their dogs, cares about what happens to every dog and saves as many as they possibly can. Their compassion is genuine and all who volunteer there spend countless hours of their own personal time with the hopes of saving just one more dog. MBR will always be my first choice when I am ready to rescue another dog.

While going thru a nasty divorce, I lost my dogs to my ex. Everyone knows that dogs help heal everything, so my hunt was a for the perfect pup (in my eyes). I came acrossed the cutest 12 week old pit mix that I iust had to meet. After meeting him I knew he was the puppy for me. MBR did their check on me and how I cared for me other pups. Within a week or so, Diesel AKA Ozzie came home to me. MBR and his foster mom checked on us for some time after to make sure everything was ok for Diesel and me. I HIGHLY recommend MBR for your adoption needs...

This is not your average animal rescue, they go above and beyond helping those animals that nobody would think are worth saving. Many lives are saved because of the wonderful work they do.

My family started volunteering for MBR so my son cod get hours for his senior year graduation requirement. My son is duely handicapped Deaf and Aspergers, not many opportunities are available to him, but Amy and her crew welcomed us and put him to work. We are now a foster family for MBR and couldn't be happier with the group of volunteers and board members who give their heart and soul to this rescue!

We adopted our Hank last fall, and could not imagine not having him as part of our family! After we adopted him my husband and I became volunteers with Multiple Breed Rescue.
It is extremely rewarding being part of an organization that is focused on rescuing, and providing vetting for animals in need and most importantly finding the best forever home possible for them.
