Holiday Notice:

The holidays are upon us and we here at ACDR would first like to thank all of our hardworking volunteers for a year filled with many great rescue and adoption stories! Because their hard work and dedication many lives have been positively changed forever!

As a way to recognize the hard work and dedication of our volunteers we would like to give back in giving them some uninterrupted time with their families and friends. Rescue work often takes time away from the most important people in our lives. We want our volunteers to be able to spend this most special time of the year with those who have sacrificed with them.

ACDR will be “closed” to the public Dec 18th thru Jan 1st. We will not be processing applications, scheduling home visits or visits with the dogs during this time. Applications will be kept on file and we will be processed in the order received.

We will be periodically checking this email but our responses will be very limited. We are not able at this time to intake any new dogs as our foster homes are all currently full. If you have found a stray please contact your local shelter.

Thank you for your understanding and patience during this very important time of year! All of us here at ACDR wish you and your family the Happiest of Holidays! We hope that you too take this time to spend with those who are most special in your lives!

We hope you are all well and enjoying the hoiday season!!


Thank you,

Lorina Lopez
