For the LOVE of DOGS ... the Barn Dog Rescue
8/11/18 -In the News! An Observation by Amanda about "ELI"
t’s a rainy, thundering, Saturday morning. The dogs are pretty unhappy about having to go outside to do potty in this terrible weather, and then being cooped up inside until the storm passed. I’m making my rounds to clean kennels and fill water buckets, and I hear all these crazy sounds coming from the far end of the barn. I hurry over to see the commotion and it’s Eli! He’s in his kennel, upside down on his back with all 4 feet in the air, holding his squeaky toy in his mouth and flailing around joyfully entertaining himself. When he sees me watching he jumps to his feet wiggling his tail around delighted that I’ve come to join his game. 💜our sweet goofy self entertaining boy continued on pouncing on his toy and squeaking for the next ten minutes. Making the best of this rainy gloomy morning.
Our dogs are the dogs that tend to be left behind at crowded shelters dogs that for a variety of reason(s) require more time ... more observation, more understanding & more positive experiences.. or simply some medical attention.. ours are dogs who are too often passed over with little or no chance for survival...
We are an organization of experienced dog specialists, deeply passionate about learning everything having to do with dogs.
We've promised to be guides, mentors and friends to our dogs.. to respect them listen to them and learn all we can from each one!
Our hope is to spread the good word about how much easier, richer and more rewarding it is to truly know & respect dogs for who they are!!
Love Dogs is where adopters come who want to play an essential role in the happiness and well being of their dogs because like us, they are captivated by the truth and magnificence of dogs, they can't learn enough about dogs & take enormous pleasure in improving their own understanding of and communication with DOGS!
If you find yourself drawn to share a meaningful relationship with a great dog who requires your attention, time, understanding and love you might do well to have a look at our dogs!
All our dogs learn basic manners & many have advanced training.

For the LOVE of HORSES
Part of the magic here has to do with the integrity of our mission. Our combined efforts to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home animals stem from a foundation of respect, kindness, clear intention and a humble desire to learn from every animal in our care.
Our rescue is located on the grounds of a serene and magnificent, private horse farm in Westchester County NY. Not only does the farm provide a sanctuary for homeless dogs it also provides sanctuary for special equines in need.
