The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) recently launched Rescue Central, a Web-based resource program designed to help animal rescue groups operate more efficiently and with greater success, according to the organization.

The program, housed within HSUS’s existing website, animalsheltering.org, will act as a one-stop resource for these groups, providing tools on topics such as fundraising, running a business, becoming involved in the community and providing optimal care for animals. The program will also provide a forum for rescue groups to interact and share helpful information with each other.

“Animal rescue groups play a vital role in improving animal welfare in communities across the country, but many could use a little extra guidance and additional tools to reach their potential,” says Abby Volin, rescue group coordinator for the HSUS. “The Humane Society of the United States is thrilled to launch Rescue Central to help rescue groups save more animals.”

Rebecca Poling of DFW Animal Rescue in Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas, says, “Animalsheltering.org has long been a reliable source for animal shelter staff looking for information on best practices in a variety of areas, and now rescue groups will be able to benefit from HSUS’s expertise as well. From the latest money-saving tips to expert advice on recruiting and retaining foster homes, the new Rescue Central section of animalsheltering.org has it all.”
