Who We Are Today
Pet Rescue By Judy is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to the rescue cats and dogs. Many of them come to us with medical needs. They are doctored to the best of our ability and resources.

Our Goals
Obviously our most urgent goal is to rescue animals that are abandoned or in distress, update their vaccines, and find good new homes for them. But we attempt to be more proactive than that. It is our heartfelt desire to prevent any animal from the need to be “rescued.” With that vision in mind, we take a three-prong approach through the education of pet owners and the general public about:

– Proper care of animals, including correct diet of good quality food, fresh clean water, daily exercise, and lots of love
– Spaying and neutering companion animals (dogs and cats) in order to prevent euthanasia and over-population
– Low-cost spay/neuter clinics and wellness centers in their local community
