Unfortunately my 4 legged best friend went to doggy heaven December 2020. Missy was with the family for 14 years. I did not want to own another dog right now so I decided to foster rescue puppies in honor of my Missy. I searched for a non profit rescue in Maryland. I came across Saving Grace Animal Rescue of Maryland. The name was a catch for me.
Not only have I fostered 5 puppies total but I adopted the 5th one and named him Mango.

Last but not least I encouraged one of my church members to adopt a puppy from SGAR.

We can't thank Saving Grace Animal Rescue of Maryland enough for our new beloved family member Daisy (Theresa). The organization was wonderful to adopt from, and Daisy's foster momma Donna was the absolute best. We are so grateful for this organization and their amazing volunteers who helped us find the perfect addition to our family.

After we lost our beloved 13-year-old rescue Charlie, we wanted to adopt another dog. We saw “Nathan” on Petfinder; he was being fostered by Saving Grace. We applied and were so happy to be approved. We went to meet him and his foster Mom Donna (and all his foster-home buddies) and fell in love. He’s now Jackson (Jack) and we’re so happy he’s part of our family! Donna has been so wonderful - she helped us get medicine for him and has been there for advice. Everyone at SGAR has been fantastic to deal with. We’re so grateful for the work they do to save beautiful dogs from high-kill shelters and other bad situations. We’d highly recommend this wonderful rescue agency to anyone.

I am a fairly new foster mom with saving Grace Animal Rescue. I have been blessed with many wonderful dogs that I have fallen in love with and given my heart to. Loving these sweet souls is such an honor. It is painful to say goodbye to them, but it makes me feel so good knowing I had a small part in finding these deserving creatures a happy life in a forever home. The other wonderful foster parents in our organization are always there to help and support me. If I need help with anything or I am sad after saying goodbye to a beloved foster dog, they are always there for me. Saving Grace is an organization made up of loving people who all want to make a difference in animals’ lives. We want all of these dear souls to feel loved, often for the first time in their lives. I feel blessed to be part of such a caring organization.

I've fostered and helped place 5 dogs with their furever homes!❤️ This rescue really cares about their rescues and the foster volunteers. Every question or concern about my foster pups was answered or needs met. The adoption processors go above and beyond to make sure animals and adopters are a good match. The rescue goes the extra mile to provide a clear idea for adopters about what they can expect with their new pup. Working with this group has been a pleasure and so heart-warming to meet people that care so much about animals!❤️

Volunteering and fostering with Saving Grace Animal Rescue of Maryland has given me a unique perspective of the inside workings. And I can tell you that SGAR is a small but mighty group that is doing everything in its power to help give animals a better life. The hours are long, there’s never enough money, and it never gets easier to see the suffering, but this is a dedicated, ethical, and passionate non-profit that far exceeds its resources to save countless animals.

I’ve been fostering for SGAR for a few years and they are by far the best rescue organization I’ve worked with. The leaders spend endless hours to save every animal they can help. They’ve even taken in pigs, bunnies, ducks etc if they need to ! I recommend adopting from them to everyone I know!

I have been fostering with Saving Grace for 2-1/2 years. I have foster failed 2 out of my 80+ dogs. This organization is amazing, they really care about the animals they save. They make sure that all animals are on a 2 week health hold when coming from transport so that they don't send out sick animals. They go above and beyond to pull and help the very sick and injured. They currently have a dog who has an auto-immune disease that caused her to be paralyzed in her hind legs. Her vet bills have totaled over $10k and this is a lifelong issue. They have another puppy who has a liver shunt as well as 7 dogs rescued from another rescue after Animal Control seized 90+ dogs/puppies from them that are still fighting Distemper. Two of those dogs have beat it but still have ringworm. They never stop fighting for these animals. My two foster fails are amazing dogs. I can't imagine my life without them.

I have been fostering with Saving Grace since March of 2019. I have fostered almost 60 dogs in that time. I also foster failed one... :) We adopted our girl Nyx (our 9th foster with SGAR) in May of last year. I can honestly say that this organization has the best team out there. The group of VOLUNTEERS (that is right, no one gets paid) do everything in their power to save the babies that come to us. We don't always get cute easily "flipable" dogs/puppies/cats/kittens. Often our director has this crazy soft spot for the ones that have medical issues. We have several HW+ dogs, including one of my current fosters. We also have dogs who are recovering from extreme flea infestation (inflamed bleeding skin) and parasites. Animals who need surgery, a kitten with hydrocephalus, another kitten with deformed front paws... the list could go on and on. What I am saying is that this organization doesn't shy away from the hard cases. We want to save them all. I can't imagine working with any other rescue other than SGAR. They are how all rescues should work. I have included a few pictures of my girl Nyx, as well as one of one of our most recent foster sibling sets.

This is the best organization I’ve ever worked with. The team is amazing and jump to action as soon as needed. Any time a foster needs help, others immediately step in. This is a great group that looks out for each animals best interest, no matter what that takes. It’s about saving lives not making money.

I rescued a puppy from them 2 years ago, started fostering shortly afterwards. The amount of love and support this organization has for animals in need is second to none. As a foster, I have seen the impact a loving caring home has on puppies and dogs and how crucial it is for them to thrive!

I have never met a group of people in any other organization that works as tirelessly and selflessly for their cause and for free (actually they donate their money to fundraising) than the volunteers in this rescue. They have rules that they stick too, that makes sure the puppies, dogs, kitties, and sometimes ducks and rabbits are all well taken care of and healthy through their foster network. They take great care to match families with the right pet for them and families for the pet.

I am not sure I'll be able to find the words to express how wonderful this rescue is. The representatives truly care and love these animals. They put so much love and care into these animals prior to adoption. We adopted our pup over a year ago and are so in love with him. We have recommended this rescue to all our friends and have had the pleasure of seeing three others adopt.

Our lives are complete because of Saving Grace!!

we rescued this sweet girl when she was 4 months old. Saving Grace found her on a Yard Sale site in Virginia. She had been kept in a crate for 12 hrs a day, was COVERED in fleas and flea bites, as well as having a UTI. Her name is now Sugar due to being the sweetest dog ever! After medical care, love and patience she is not as fearful of people as she once was. All she needed was someone to love her and give her the life she deserved.

If you are looking to adopt or foster I cannot recommend SGAR enough. Our journey with SGAR started May of 2019 when my husband went to a foster's home to measure a flooring job. That's when I got a cute little pic of Penny (the tan pup in the photo) who was looking for her furever home. We put in the application and the process was seamless.

Fast forward to this year and we decided to give back. Penny has brought us so much joy that we wanted to start fostering. February of this year we began fostering. IT HAS BEEN SO REWARDING!!!! We have fostered 15 dogs/pups and each of them has been unique and wonderful. We even have added another pup to our pack permanently ( Gavin- The black pup in the photo) If you are looking to adopt or foster ~ this is your rescue

We met our dog at an adoption event. Our dog’s foster was very nice and answered all our questions regarding the dog we were thinking of adopting. We had never had a dog before so we were looking for a dog not a puppy. The foster explained the process of submitting an application, the adoption fee and when we could except to take our dog to her forever home! The people who work and volunteer for this organization are awesome!
