WE NEED FOSTER HOMES FOR OUR DOGS AND CATS!
When caring people come together, wonderful things happen. Karen Roberts, author of the childrens' series, "The Little Blue Dog", and her aunt Dotti Seaman, animal lover and philanthropist, started a project to help JARC (Jewish Association for Residential Care), find a dog that would be a family member for a successful group home in West Boca Raton.
Chesed Rescue was delighted to be involved in selecting the right dog for this home. Surah Corwin, group home supervisor, fell madly in love with one of the Chesed puppies for adoption, Venus. Venus and her sibling Appollo are being fostered by the lovely Eden family, Julie, Doug and Hannah. All came together to make this adoption happen! It does take a village...even to raise and place a puppy in a loving home.

It is part of the Chesed philosophy to act on behalf of those that can't help themselves.
Through the help of our supporters and volunteers we have been able to increase our services. Wildlife and other domestic "critters" are included in our circle of care. Orthopaedic cases requiring extensive surgery and rehab have a second chance when we take over, usually after a pet is brought or surrendered to animal services after being hit by a car.
