Today I am spending some time at a local adoption event in Cherry Hill, NJ, with Sherry’s Place Rescue. They are a small local 501(c)3 non profit rescue group dedicated to re-homing Yorkies and other small breed dogs in need.

They have some wonderful dogs here today available for adoption. I would take them all home with me in a heartbeat!
Their mission statement:
“We are a small, all volunteer, 501(c)3, nonprofit rescue group dedicated to saving and re-homing Yorkies and other small-breed dogs in need. Our mission is to evaluate, rehabilitate and place these dogs in permanent loving homes. Incoming dogs will be examined and treated by a veterinarian and cared for by experienced foster homes until they are adopted by an approved family. We will incorporate education and public outreach programs to help further these goals.”
Sherry’s Place Rescue started approximately 3 years ago and received their 501(c)3 within 6 months. They have 3 directors, Michele Verga, Marg Kane, Pat Masilotti, and a small group of foster volunteers. They told me that rescue is very tiring but extremely rewarding!
These 3 wonderful woman used to volunteer for other rescues, broke away and decided to form their own rescue group. To date they have rescued about 35 dogs!
They have pulled many dogs from Philadelphia’s ACCT, Brandywine Valley, Women’s Humane Society, and subscribe to NO Kill Philadelphia.
They currently have a small volunteer base and are in need of more foster homes! If you are interested in reading more about this wonderful rescue, fostering, adopting or wish to make a donation, please go to their website.
In closing, I would just like to add a personal note to the 3 ladies that formed this rescue, and let them know, how much I admire and support them and all their efforts!
