Garden Rescues at SPOT ON VET

The mission of Garden Rescues is a small breed dog rescue located in Stamford, CT inside Spot On Veterinary Hospital & Hotel. Garden Rescues provide medical care as well as a loving and safe environment for the dogs while they seek to find them permanent homes.  Garden Rescues distinguish itself from traditional shelters by providing a much more comfortable and less stressful environment where the dogs board.  The dogs will live in rooms, rather than cages, and spend most of their days interacting with people as well as other dogs.  In traditional shelters dogs spend approximately 23 hours a day in solitude in a cage.  Garden Rescues’ dogs spend the majority of their days with people in the hopes that they will be less stressed and actually enjoy their lives while they wait for forever homes.
