Our Mission

DDD_square logoOur Mission

Downtown Dogs Group (DDG) is a no-kill organization committed to rescuing abandoned companion animals with the ultimate goal of placing them in loving, permanent homes.

Recognizing that every dog and cat deserves a chance, Downtown Dogs Group will not discriminate on the basis of age, health, or breed. We will dedicate every resource at our disposal to the physical, emotional, and behavioral rehabilitation of each animal that we rescue. All decisions regarding the animals in our care will be based on the quality of life of that individual animal.

In addition, DDG is committed to reducing the number of abused, neglected, abandoned, and exploited animals in our area. It is our long-term vision to work with other concerned citizens to make Jackson-Madison County a no-kill community. All of the dogs and cats in our care will be spayed or neutered as soon as the animal’s health and age permits. No animal will be released from our rescue unaltered. Our animals will only be placed with carefully screened fosters and adopters.

Volunteers are the lifeblood of our rescue, and it is our hope that all who assist our organization will have a rewarding experience. Fosters will be given the resources and support needed to optimally provide for the animals in their care, and all volunteers, donors, and others associated with DDG will be treated with appreciation and respect.
