I have worked with two rottweiler rescue groups in the 20 plus years I've lived in Texas - the latest group being Southern States Rescued Rottweilers Inc. All the people volunteering with this group are beyond friendly and committed to saving not only purebred rottweilers, but in the past several years have expanded to rescue rottie mixes. The area served by this group has grown during my volunteer period. I have yet to meet or speak with an SSRR volunteer who isn't friendly and more than willing to help in whatever manner is needed.

I plan on continuing to volunteer with this group as long as I can.

I'm more than happy to admit that I'm also a foster failure - my Rosie, a soon to be two year old - came to me April 2015 and I just couldn't bear to part with her.

I have worked with SSRR in some capacity for the last 9 years. I have seen many Rottweilers who would otherwise die on the streets or in a shelter get saved due to this organization.

The success rate of this rescue group's rescue/adoption rate is higher than any other group that I've worked with. The potential adopter screening process is streamlined, thorough and fair, making sure these rescued babies get into the best homes possible. A HUGE positive for this group is that the length of foster to adopt is astronomically shorter than other groups. The applicant pool has been vast and I have witnessed dogs adopted into amazing homes where they are loved members of the family for the rest of their lives.

My SSRR alumni, Sadie, is living out her golden years getting lots of love as well as quality medical care for arthritis. I could not imagine my life not knowing this beautiful girl.
