Rogers' Rescues was founded in Whitehouse Station, NJ in May of 2002 by five individuals with a single common bond - a love of dogs. We had a desire to help those dogs that found themselves lost, abandoned, neglected or mistreated and, through no fault of their own, were without a family and a loving home. Rogers' Rescues was founded with the premise and intent of assisting dogs in need of re-homing assistance. We found that the other breed-specific rescues at the time were selective about the dogs they would/could help, and many in need did not receive needed assistance. Instead, they languished in shelters, possibly meeting an untimely and unjust demise there. We were especially concerned about those discarded by their owners and placed in shelters due to age, health, behavioral or other problems that made them less likely to be adopted through an all breed shelter environment.
