Dutch Fork Animal Hospital greatly contributes to the cause of animal rescue in this community. However, because of the numerous amount of animals wandering the streets, animal rescue would go no where with out the tremendous help of the many rescue organizations around the world! There are a few rescue groups that have partnered with Dutch Fork Animal Hospital to help rehabilitate and rehome a number of abandoned or stray animals. We are proud to share our passion for animal rescue and we tip our hat to these brave individuals who give their homes and hearts up to these animals.

We here at DFAH are quite familar with Noah's Arks Rescue and have become equally attached to some of the animals who walk through our doors. Whether they stay with us for a day, a week, or even a month we hate saying goodbye to their loving faces. The organization's founder, Jennifer Smith, is working very hard on finding homes for any abandoned or stray animal that gets brought to her. Many of the animals she helps are in need of life changing surgeries or medical treatments and they need help covering the costs to rehabilitate these animals. Below are a few pictures of the loveable animals that are looking for their forever homes. If you are unable to adopt at this point, you have the option of donating to the shelter to help the cause.
