Welcome to the Rescue Reference!

Bottle feeding rescue animalsI’ve created the Rescue Reference to help new and existing animal rescues and shelters become more efficient and financially sustainable. This site is focused on offering support and education to existing animal rescues and shelters, as well as for those wishing to start their own animal rescue.

I’ll be posting information on business structure, best-practices and policies, creative fundraising, and more. Please feel free to ask any questions you might have. As a community, we can all learn from each other.

Although the bulk of this site will be information for those starting or running their own wildlife, bird, cat or dog rescue, I’ll also be sharing information to help the owners of a rescued animal, including behavior, training, and enrichment.

Please feel free to share this page with anyone you feel might be interested. I’m going to have a website full of content and resources for rescues and shelters coming soon. I’m adding more content daily.
