Sacramento Independent Animal Rescuers is a 501c3 nonprofit organization. Their purpose is to aid stray, abandoned, and neglected animals.  

To date, over 2,500 dogs and cats have been rescued and placed into wonderful homes in the past few years. 

In order to provide these services, they work with the community shelters, rescue organizations, and individuals who have animals with special needs and place these animals in permanent homes after they reach a stage of wellness. 

They are not a shelter; most of the animals listed on their site are either in foster care, at a dog boarding facility, or at an animal shelter and posted on their site as a courtesy posting only.

Sacramento Area Independent Dog RescuersIn 2001, Carrie Moore pulled a doomed dog she called Nevada from the Sacramento city shelter and ultimately found a home for him with a dog park buddy. "I started rescuing dogs in danger of euthanasia from local shelters one at a time and networking to find them great homes," she says, "and little by little I started meeting more people who were involved in organized rescue groups. After a few years I felt it was time to get a group together myself."

Officially launched in 2004, Sacramento Independent Animal Rescuers handles 250-300 dogs per year. Says Moore, "We generally focus on rescuing the underdogs, dogs that many folks would pass over--older, injured, sick, shy. We rescue them, place them in foster care, get them healthy and hopefully find them the perfect home!" (See Bubba's story.)

One of SIAR's current hopefuls is border collie mix Pepper, shown here, who's been unlucky in the shelter lotto and is looking for a lifelong companion. You?
