INTAKE POLICIES


ACCEPTED

At Rockstar, we are dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of sick, injured and/or psychologically traumatized dogs. Which include but is not limited to;
  • Sick, injured or elderly dogs from County shelters
  • Physically impaired and/or disabled dogs from County shelters. (Case dependant)
  • Dogs housed in or previously involved in hoarding situations. (Case dependant)
  • Dogs that are deemed 'unadoptable' and of which would be a proper fit for our sanctuary. (Case dependant)
  • Any dog found microchipped to, or former adoptions of Rockstar Rescue
Space is limited, therefore not all dogs meeting our intake policy can be accepted.

NOT ACCEPTED

If we are unable to assist with a dog accepted or not accepted by our intake policies, please use Google to research and contact other rescues and resources that can.
Due to unfortunate situations and interactions with the public at large, court procedings and  negative backlash incidents through social media and other sources, we have had to adopt the following protocols. We no longer accept;
  • Owner surrenders. (Except in the situation of hoarding cases.)
    • ESPECIALLY surrenders due to owner moving or having a baby!
  • Strays. (Except in emergencies such as hit by car, injured, extreme malnourishment, etc...) (Case dependant)
  • We no longer provide "courtesy posts" on our Facebook, Instagram or Twitter pages. This takes away from current Rockstar dogs all looking for homes.
  • We do not "pull", in our name, from a County facility in order to "buy time" or enable a dog to be saved. If a dog is pulled by RCRS, it is then an official Rockstar dog.
  • At this time Rockstar Rescue does not have the resources nor accommodations to intake dogs with aggressive behavioral issues. Minor issues such as food and/or toy resource guarding are not considered as "aggression" and may be accepted. (Case dependant)
