Sometimes Good Samaritans notify us about dogs that need to be rescued, and sometimes we find these dogs on our own. Whenever someone steps up and agrees to take a street dog into their home or rescue group, the Ducks will deploy!
Duck Team 6 searches for elusive dogs that need to be rescued and off the streets. Sometimes they are hurt, in heat, malnourished, or in danger of being hit by oncoming traffic. In many cases a search & capture mission can take days, weeks, or even months.
Foster homes are needed so that we can help a street dog learn how to be a forever family member. Fostering really just means providing a place for the dogs to stay where they will be loved, fed, and taken care of.
In 99% of our rescues, former street dogs adjust quite well to life inside a forever home. Street dogs are highly adaptable, are used to being around other dogs and cats, and are generally very grateful for a soft bed and daily food and water.
