Rescue Well meets pet owners where they are, both in Maryland’s most at-risk communities and on our 24-hour volunteer-run hotline. We engage residents by showing an interest in their lifestyles, their perspectives, and issues. We educate one another: we share what we know and see, and the residents do the same. Here, learning is always two a two way street. Finally, we empower residents to make choices, and we help them accomplish those choices.

We “work our way up the leash” to identify human needs, too, and we’ll connect our clients with resources to lift the entire household. We believe that cultural change happens slowly, one family and one choice at a time.
