 MISSION STATEMENT

The purpose of 3B Rescue & Adoptions is to provide a combined local effort to
assist in decreasing the number of dogs that are needlessly killed in shelters and humane societies. Rescuing dogs that face death in shelters and providing them the chance to find their forever home while also providing educational efforts throughout the Texoma area are services provided by 3B Rescue.

We are a small group of individuals who work to rescue dogs in the Wichita Falls and surrounding areas. Border Collies, Brittanys, and Boxers are the three main breeds we work with. Depending upon room and resources, we do and have on many occasions taken in other breeds and mixed breeds. We network with many rescue resources through out the state of Texas and Oklahoma to help as many dogs as we can by providing transportation and assisting in home visits and referrals. We only accept dogs that are in kill shelters. These dogs are in crisis and urgently need our assistance. Owners who wish to rehome their pets are given assistance in placing advertisements or working with them in order to help them keep their dogs.

Each dog is fostered in our homes, and receives all medical care and behavior
assessment/training as needed. All dogs are spayed/neutered before being
placed in a "forever" home and are current on vaccinations and heartworm
preventive. Adoption fees are used to help defray the costs for each dog
and to help with future rescues, as there is always a waiting list of dogs
desperately needing rescue.

At 3B, our ultimate goal is to help place unwanted dogs into loving "forever" homes. We require an adoption application and references, which are checked.
We also require a home visit to ensure that the dog and the potential adopters are the best match possible.
