Partner Shelters

We believe by visiting shelters and rescues in person, we get to know the people and the situations firsthand. We are better able to understand the challenges they face, and the resources they need to face them. This is why we endorse them as organizations worthy of your time, attention, and donations.

Learn more about our experiences at each organization, to appreciate each unique organization and meet the heroes and the animals they are working to save. Be sure to read the blog post linked to each listing of the shelters and rescues that we have visited.

You’ll also note where we have provided updates. Leadership and situations change, and not always for the better. You’ll also read about several that are not doing enough with what they are given. We leave it up to you as to whether they are worthy of your donations.

Who Will Let the Dogs Out is in the process of assigning ‘Shelter Liaisons’ to each of the organizations we visit so that we can stay updated regarding their situation and offer help when we can. If you’d like to be a Shelter Liaison, we’d love to have you. Click here to fill our our volunteer application or email us.

We do our best to keep this page updated, but if you experience any links that don’t work or if you are one of these shelters/rescues that would like your entry updated, please email
