Rescue Without Borders (R.W.B.) is a small animal rescue based in NJ that rescues animals in need domestic and abroad.
Our Motto- Every Dog Deserves a Good Home, No matter what breed or where they come from.
Love knows no boundaries. We do not discriminate; we will rescue the Underdogs, be it in the U.S. or abroad.
Currently we are focusing our rescue efforts on two types of Under Dogs- The American Staffordshire/Pit Bull Terrier or Pit Bull mix that we pull from the local shelters in the U.S; and on the international front the dogs from the streets of India called the Pariah Dogs, IN (Indian Native) Dogs or Desi Dogs.
R.W.B. family believes in opening our hearts and homes to the abandoned and unwanted dogs and cats irrespective of their location, age, sex, breed or size.
We rescue animals from terrible conditions and hence have them live with their foster family for a minimum of 8 weeks during which time they receive not only veterinary care but also socialization and training. Since our rescued pets live with us for a long time we get to know them intimately which enable us to place them in a forever home that is just right for them. We can help you choose a dog to adopt based on whether his personality is a good match for you and your household/lifestyle.
Insuring our foster pets' health is our priority #1. We do not spare any expense when it comes to caring for our rescued pets. They not only get veterinary care for their specific medical needs, timely vaccinations, vitamins and high quality nutritious food but we also do a blood and stool test to ensure that they are completely healthy prior to adoption. All our rescued pets that are six months and older are spayed/neutered prior to adoption. Our international rescues fly to the U.S. with an International Health Certificate, medical paperwork and required documents. They are all healthy and Vet checked prior to adoption.
Our rescue also focuses on educating foster parents, adopters and others on importance of feeding nutritious food, socialization, training and daily exercise of their pet. Spay/Neuter to prevent unwanted litters of both dogs and cats is paramount.
We are very proud to be a Rescue without borders. So, what does it mean to be a rescue without borders?
We rescue and adopt within the U.S. irrespective of state borders, but now you may be wondering, why India? What would be the reason to bring dogs from another country when there are so many homeless dogs in the U.S.? Typically in India, dogs that are born on the streets are not kept as family pets. Most people cannot afford to keep a dog as a pet and those who do prefer a western breed as a status symbol. So these street dogs spend their entire lives on the streets in miserable conditions with no chance of ever finding a home.
We work hard to make people aware of the plight of homeless dogs in the local shelters and also in the developing countries like India. We focus our rescue efforts specifically on the dogs that are unable to survive on the streets; like orphaned pups, injured, sick or abandoned dogs. Pups born on the streets have little chance of survival where they most often get killed by vehicles or are victims of cruelty or die of hunger and malnutrition. We rescue, rehabilitate and bring these animals to good health and give them a chance at finding loving homes where they can live a happy, healthy and a safe life which otherwise would never be possible living on the streets. The average life span of these dogs on the street is well under five years during which time they suffer the effects of poor nutrition, harsh weather conditions and abuse from people. However as a house pet they become happy, loving, gorgeous companion dogs where they live a healthy life of 16+ years. On the streets it is the survival of the fittest so IN/Desi dogs are born to be extremely hardy, intelligent and quick learners - if they weren't they wouldnât survive on the streets!
In the 3 past year we have successfully rescued, rehabilitated and founds homes for over 200 streets dogs of India throughout the Northeast.
We also rescue our own Underdogs the Pit bulls or Pit bull type dogs from kill shelters in the U.S. and find them right homes where they will thrive as family companions. Through our rescue work we educate and raise awareness to dispel the misconception about this breed.
We want to ensure that not only the pet that we rescue goes to a good home, but also the dog that the family is wanting to adopt is right for them. When there is a good match between the two the adoption is successful and everyone involved is happy.
To ensure successful adoption, we adhere to the following adoption process-
When you see a pet that you like please email us at Rescuewithoutborders@gmail.com. As soon as we get your email we will answer any questions you might have and also email you an Adoption Application. After we receive a completed Adoption application back from you, we will give you a call to discuss your application, give you more information and answer your questions. Once all your references are checked and your application is approved we will set up an appointment for you to meet the pet in his/her foster home. After meeting the pet if you decide to adopt, you can then go ahead and official adopt the pet by filling out an Adoption Contract. You might be able to take the pet home with you the same day but we reserve the right to a home visit either before or after the adoption to ensure that the pet goes to a good home. After adoption we keep in touch with the family to provide any support needed to ensure that the pet is transitioned into their new home and the adoption is a success.
We believe training helps ensure successful adoption. A well behaved dog is a happy dog in a happy home. Attending formal obedience training classes with your dog is a must. It not only teaches the new dog to know the rules of the house but also helps establish a bond with their new people.
Please note that the adoption donation requested defers for every pet and is higher for the dogs rescued from India due to the cost of transportation and medical cost incurred in rescuing that pet. Please inquire about the adoption fees/donation at the beginning of the adoption process.
