These amazing creatures called dogs come to Roughneck Rescue & Sanctuary through owner surrenders, the local police department, strays and sometimes they just show up on our porch. They may need medical attention, behavior rehabilitation or in many instances they need both. In some cases, they can be adopted to new homes. In a lot of cases, their behavior is such that they will become a life-long Roughneck. That's where the sanctuary comes in.
Some of the dogs that come to us can be rehabilitated and through adoption, find new loving homes. However, some of the dogs here, even though they are rehabilitated and do great at the rescue with Danny and Kelly, may revert back to demonstrating unwanted behaviors if put into a different situation. Those dogs will remain in our care. It's a great life for a dog here in sanctuary. It's free range on five fenced acres with daily structured exercise, leadership and affection.
Quality, not quantity. We do things a little differently at Roughneck Rescue and we will help you find a dog that matches your energy. You want a dog that has an energy level equal or less than yours that you can easily fulfill, which will result in a better relationship with your dog. When the right dog is found for you, we'll schedule an appointment for you to come to the center and meet Danny and the dog.
