It all started when three people saw a need and said "we want to help." We are a 100% volunteer based organization born out of the desire to make things better and the drive to make a difference in the lives of neglected animals. With over 15 years of rescue experience, the Directors of PAR strive to help the homeless and needy animals in Baltimore and the surrounding areas find the loving homes they deserve.
We have no public facility, but operate with a network of dedicated foster parents and volunteers. We work with local Petco stores, business owners, and passionate people to find happy homes for the animals in our care, relieve the burden on our local shelters, and educate people on how to be better pet parents.
