Pom to the
Rescue is a 501(c)3, California corporation. We are a private, non-profit Pomeranian rescue located in the
Sacramento valley of Northern California. We rely solely on
donations and adoption donations to rescue, fully vet and rehabilitate
our Pomeranians. Our rescues are primarily pulled from high kill shelters as well as accepting
The fee donated for your adopted loved one saves the next one from
dying in a shelter.
My passion for rescue
and educating the public started back in 1994. I bought a
Pomeranian puppy in a local pet store and thought I had
asked all the right questions. Was she bred locally? Is
she from a puppy mill? Etc. Within 24 hours she was so ill
that she needed more than $2,000 in vet costs to save her
life. They offered me my money back, however I had to
return her and she would be euthanized immediately. Well I
could not let them kill her, but I did take my experience
and use it to educate others. This started me on my
path to educate the public and eventually to rescue. I
had no idea at the time just how far this path would take
For years after that
I would take in strays and find them loving homes, but I
kept telling myself that I could not get involved in rescue
full time because it was too painful to face all the
neglect, abuse and abandonment of so many innocent souls.
One day I realized my decision to ignore the problem was
actually making it worse, so I started to make it about them
~ not me. Thus, the next chapter began. I started off by
volunteering/fostering for other rescues. In 2010, I
decided it was time to go out on my own. Hence Pom to the
Rescue started taking shape. With the help of some very
compassionate and caring people and my husband by my side
cheering me on, my rescue has blossomed. I have been
able to save some precious souls that have touched my heart
deeply. I pride myself in helping the Pomeranians that
are too often over looked because of their special needs.
My blind rescues have a very special corner of my heart.
They have brought more joy to me than I can ever express in
very small rescue. I am very fortunate to have the
most selfless and dedicated volunteers that share my same
passion for rescue. We are all of like mind. It
is not about us or our ego, it is about them and their lives. Without our
intervention, they will surely die.
I cannot save the
world, but I can save one at a time.
