Help For Homeless Pets
Riverview Rescue Mission Statement:
We are a non-profit, no-kill, volunteer rescue organization serving the Kansas City, metro area. We are dedicated to rescuing dogs left homeless for whatever reason – dogs in public shelters where they are at high risk of euthanasia due to pet overpopulation, dogs given up by their owners because of difficult circumstances, and those in danger of abuse or neglect.
We place dogs in loving, responsible, committed permanent homes, following a comprehensive adoption process which includes taking considerable care in finding good matches and educating prospective adopters about the responsibilities and costs of bringing a dog into their homes and lives.
Animals in our care are spayed or neutered, receive all appropriate veterinary care and treatment, while they await placement in their permanent homes. We assist animals in distress without regard to age, breed or ease of placement.
Finally, we strive to work with area shelters and other rescue and humane organizations to develop a network of supporters and volunteers in order to create a better world for homeless pets.

If all my friends were to jump off a bridge, I wouldn't jump with them.  I'd be at the bottom to catch them.
