Rescue Rovers started in November, 2012 as an all volunteer, non-profit group arranging transportation from high kill shelters to partner rescues in the Intermountain West. Our mission was to pool resources to maximize the number of dogs saved when a volunteer went to "pull" a dog from the shelter. We believed if we had an empty seat in the car, a kennel could go there and we could save more lives. Indeed, our promise that "Together, we can do MORE" has helped us save more than 2,000 lives since our inception.
In February, 2013, several of our group leaders who had been with other rescue groups banded together to found our Adoptions group. Since that time, hundreds MORE dogs are getting out of shelters and finding furever homes through adoption. We applied for our 501c3 in 2013, and received approval from the IRS, allowing that donations made to our rescue are fully tax deductable.
