It was 5 years ago that a shelter dog named Sawyer came into our lives and changed everything. He was followed by Lucy who opened our eyes to the very dire needs of dogs that are abused, neglected and dying. It was because of these 2 special dogs that Saving Argo Dog Rescue was born.

Each dog that has passed through our foster based rescue has taught us something, showed us that no situation is too difficult and no dog is ever beyond hope, even with the odds stacked against them. We take on some of the hardest cases and in doing so we have realized that there is a greater need than we can ever hope to accommodate as a foster group, it’s time to grow.

In 5 years and 300 + dogs our mission remains strong, our devotion solid and our vision clear that we can be doing so much more with a facility for the most urgent of these rescue dogs.

We receive so many calls each day for dogs that need our help but without a facility we just don’t have the time we need to help them, its heartbreaking when all we need is a little time, a place for them to go while we get a foster family lined up.

The Saving Argo Rescue Center is the answer to this problem. This 12 kennel, heated facility located at our home in Rockford will serve as a safe haven for dogs in urgent need of rescue to safely wait while we find a foster home for them.

Fostering will remain our focus and goal; the rescue center will merely serve as a first stop on their journey to a better life. We can evaluate them, get them the medical care they need and search for a foster family all while knowing these dogs are safe and no longer in danger of euthanization.

This facility will serve as an overflow for dogs seized from fighting operations, very special needs dogs and any other dogs that need immediate placement to avoid being euthanized. The facility will also serve as a rehabilitation center for disabled and special needs dogs.

This is a very big step for us, but it’s also the obvious step. Our journey through rescue has been so fulfilling, even during the heartache and sad times which is just part of rescue work, we could not imagine life any other way.

We are so excited to embark on this new journey and help dogs that would otherwise be lost, what better purpose is there to pursue your dreams when it involves changing the lives of these amazing dogs.

Thank you rescue friends & family for your support over the years, we could not have done all of this without you! We share this dream with all of you!
