What is a "Rescue"
Valid rescue organizations are usually non-profit entities and are characteristically “limited admission” organizations. They concentrate on either specific breeds, type of animal, or special need. These groups generally use a network of foster homes or boarding kennels to house the animals until they are adopted.
Rescue organization animals are obtained mostly through shelters and owner surrender. Animal shelters can also be known as an Animal Care Center, Animal Services or, as we no longer like to say, “the pound”.
City or county governments typically are the responsible parties for their operation. A number have an “open door” policy which means they do not turn away any animal. The Tehama County Animal Care Center is a “limited admission” county-run shelter.
They accept all stray animals found within their jurisdiction. They will also occasionally take owner surrender animals on a case-by-case basis, as space allows. When an animal is "Rescued" from the shelter it means that the organization received one of the animals from the shelter and will keep it until it is adopted.
