AKC breed clubs are about much more than just showing dogs. They also devote time and resources to rescuing dogs of the breed. The AKC Rescue Network is a good resource when you’re looking for a dog of a specific breed. Many breed clubs, like the Bulldog Club of America, handle breed rescue directly, while other clubs like the Golden Retriever Club of America provide resources such as coordination, online listings, fundraising and grants to dozens of local breed rescue organizations. Dogs may be surrendered to the breed rescue for a variety of reasons, including a change in family circumstances, like a death, divorce or relocation. Some are returned because the current owner couldn’t fulfill the dog’s needs. Dogs come to these rescues from all over the country. In the Northeast, for example, many dogs come from shelters in the South. The rescue group often arranges transport to the dog’s new foster home. Many rescue groups develop relationships with shelters and negotiate with them to help move dogs to a foster situation. Almost all AKC breed clubs (93.4%) say their rescues are fostered in volunteer homes.
