We owe so much to a woman named Roger.
Anne Marie Rogers founded Rogers' Rescues in June 2002 after being involved in dog rescue for several years. She saw an opportunity to find homes for dogs languishing in shelters located in remote locations.
While people in New Jersey and Pennsylvania were on waiting lists for companion dogs at local shelters, Animal Control in rural areas of Kentucky and West Virginia had too many dogs and too few people able to give them homes. Overpopulation and low adoption rates forced these shelters to euthanize healthy companion animals every single day.
To help these dogs, Anne Marie founded Rogers' Rescues, an "all-breed" rescue welcoming any and every breed and mix.
Anne Marie Rogers has relocated to another part of the country. But her commitment and legacy is continued by the current volunteers with Rogers’ Rescues – now over 50 strong and growing every year.
