We always say there is no ‘I’ in ‘rescue.’ And to that end we wouldn’t be where we are without the strong relationships we have forged in rescue. Listed below are some of the folks we not only call ‘partners’ but also friends.
Ruff Dog Rescue- GA
When we say Ruff Dog Rescue GA is our ‘sister’ rescue, we aren’t kidding. Ruff Dog Rescue - GA was founded by Lisa Johnson who is the sister of RDRNE’s president, Tere Morris. As founder and president, Lisa continues to steer the organization with the help of a small group of dedicated volunteers. RDR-GA assists dogs in some of the most underserved areas of Georgia. Not only do they pull dogs from tiny, rural shelters, many without public adoption programs, but they work in the community to help provide resources to ‘owned’ dogs.
The homeless dog problem in Georgia is critical and we work with Lisa and RDR-GA to bring many in-need dogs to our facility in the northeast. We often bring entire litters of puppies from Georgia, where they are a ‘dime-a-dozen’ and help adopt them into qualified homes throughout our adoption area (which, thanks to better spay/neuter compliance, is less saturated with homeless puppies).

Pilots N Paws is a national network of private pilots who offer flight services to transport shelter animals to rescue groups. PNP is an all-volunteer group and operates without scheduled flights or fees, and rescue groups contract with approved pilots via the PNP discussion forum.
We are privileged to work with Captain Craig Savage and his daughter/co-pilot Hailey who fly our Georgia dogs from our partner rescue RDR-GA to us in northeast PA. To date, Craig & Hailey have flown over 200 dogs to a new life in the north. Without their help, we couldn’t do the work we do. Captain Craig & Hailey are not only rescue-partners but are part of the extended Ruff Dog Rescue family.

LB Dogs, located on the south shore of Long Island, NY was founded with one goal in mind – keeping dogs with their families. LB Dogs founder Martin Aynat began working with dogs in local shelters, and it was there he recognized the need for proper training and socialization for family dogs. ‘Behavior’ is one of the most cited reasons people give when surrendering dogs to shelters.
Martin began volunteering in the community by offering a weekly free dog training clinic, as well as offering services to rescue groups, like RDRNE. In an effort to fill the overwhelming demand he began to offer group and private (one-on-one) training.
“I founded LB Dogs with one major purpose: keeping dogs with their families.
We teach dog socialization, understanding dog behavior and provide people with the tools to establish a better relationship with their dogs.”
