Visiting and purchasing from the following links helps pay for some of the rescue activities that I do:
The featured animals listed above are in northwest Indiana shelters, Petfinder.org has thousands more
animals needing homes, including in shelters near you!
KATZ DAWGS & Other Critters This is Rosie, my orange/creme pomeranian dressed as a lady bug for halloween. No, she's not available, she's all mine!
I rescued her from being sent back to a puppy mill, probably to be bred the rest of her life. My other dog Boo who's picture is too big for the page, and another pic of Boo He is a 6 yr old boxer/shar-pei/pitbull mix that
I adopted at Hobart Humane Society 6 yrs ago. Click here for more pics of Boo. My best friends in the world are these two.
Welcome to Katz Dawgs! Here you will find many resources for pet owners, or potential pet owners...especially geared towards rescues and shelters. The page is somewhat new, so stop by often
as I add to it. Bookmark this site so you can come see anything you miss.
Simply upload pictures of dogs, cats, funny sayings etc, THEY put on it on Tshirts, Mugs and
Mousepads and when people buy, you earn a profit! I created a store for the Sheltie Rescue and
they've made around $700 towards their medical fund so far.
Thinking about buying a puppy? Before you do, you've got a lot of things to consider. Are you ready for a dog? What breed are you
interested in and does it fit your lifestyle and family? Is there a Breed Rescue available for your breed, so that you can SAVE a dog of your favorite breed? Does this breed fit your lifestyle & personality? Do you have the time and patience it takes to own a dog?
Can you afford the shots, spaying/neutering, other vet bills that may pop up?
I recently started donating my time at the humane society, walking & playing with the dogs, and thought how this would
be a great way for people to help their local shelters AND explore different types of dogs.
Find a Shelter in your area and donate your time,
while getting to know various types of dogs. You might even find the dog of your dreams while you're at it.
Before we get to the fun links, check out information on spaying or neutering your pets. Too many animals end up in shelters,
or dead, just because their owners didn't get them fixed. I know it's expensive, but there are programs that will assist you with
the cost, and in some areas it's close to nothing ($10-$20), which is less than the food for a litter you might end up with! If you
are just dying for new little puppies, adopt one, there are so many little babies already homeless that need you. "It's not a virus and it's not a bacterium, but it is responsible for the deaths of millions of animals annually...overpopulation." -ASPCA
Low-cost Spay/Neuter Programs: Note: "Friends of Animals" is listed at $75 for a female dog, which I know isn't much less than what
my vet runs "regular" price. Check others, and call your vet first, for cheaper pricing.
