  All-American Mutt Rescue, Inc

Do Not Pity A Shelter Dog
is a home-based animal rescue organization that has grown out of love and compassion for animals.  Located in Huddleston, VA, we are truly in the heart of Virginia — 30 minutes from Lynchburg, 30 minutes from Smith Mountain Lake, 30 minutes from Bedford, and 60 minutes from Roanoke.   

Our motto is "Rescue … rehome … real love” and we try to live it every day.  We rescue animals in need of new homes and loving families. We make sure each of them is spayed or neutered and up-to-date on all routine vaccinations. If other medical care or treatment is needed, we get that for them as well.

We welcome these fosters into our homes and our lives and really get to know their personalities and their needs.  Then we make it our mission to re-home them - to place them in the forever home that will be perfect for them. Some of them really need to have another pet companion, while others will do well being an 'only pet.' Some love having children to play with, while others prefer being with adult companions. Some dogs do well sharing a home with cats or other small pets, while others .... well ... no so much. Some cats tolerate dogs and some definitely do not. And the only way we know this is by living with them!

We also work to educate and encourage other pet owners to spay or neuter their animals to

    a) help their pets lead longer, healthier lives, and

    b) help reduce the numbers of homeless and unwanted animals in our Central Virgina communities.

 It is such an easy thing to do!  Not only will it benefit your pet and your family, but it will reduce the numbers of wonderful, adoptable animals that are euthanized every year.  Please be part of the solution.

Until you have held a tiny puppy in your arms as it kissed your face with slobbery puppy breath and felt the love, 

Until you have held an injured or severely ill dog in your arms and felt their pain, and 

Until you have looked into the eyes of a tired aging senior dog and felt their wisdom,
You will never understand the life of a rescuer.
We find beauty in the most incomprehensible places and the otherwise homely faces.
It is our gift to see beyond the dirt, terror, sadness and defeat and find the true soul that lies within.
We are Rescue.
