Home Stretch Animal Rescue

Home Stretch Animal Rescue Founded in October 2005, HSAR operates entirely through uncompensated volunteer time. All money received in donations and adoption fees goes to pay for medical services or supplies for the companion animals being cared for by the organization. HSAR and its volunteers provide the following services in the Northern Virginia area: trapping and medical care for stray companion animals, foster care (providing daily care and medical), socialization and evaluation of rescued animals, assistance in searching for lost pets, and weekly adoption events (held at a local pet store). HSAR works with its volunteers to find the right homes for the animals in its care. It requires an application, an interview, and a home check in the hopes of ensuring that the adoptions from HSAR will be the last adoption for the animal. If the adopting family runs into any difficulty, HSAR happily takes the animal back. HSAR volunteers also assist in coordinating inter-state rescue of companion animals located in other jurisdictions. In the past few years, HSAR facilitated the relocation of over 230 stray cats living (and starving) on the beach in Miami, Florida. These cats were homeless as a result of the hurricanes that area of the country experienced in 2006. Most of these cats were not spayed/neutered or vaccinated, and many near death. Representatives from HSAR arranged for other regional rescue groups to take some of the cats transported into the area to foster and arrange adoptions. HSAR has also assisted with transporting and taking in cats from several hoarding situations in Maryland and Virginia, as well as West Virginia. HSAR has local impact, and works with the Fairfax community, assisting with abandoned companion animals found in this heavily populated area of Northern Virginia. Additionally, HSAR assists other local rescue organizations with large, regional rescue efforts, and provides services needed for companion animals and the people that love them.

Located in DC area: Please share, maybe someone can rescue this poor doggy. Here is the information she shared:

Landlady is selling house so I have to move, have no job this summer, and have limited resources. I have an older dog and I need to find a home for him. I will have to put him down if I cannot find a home for him. He has been a loyal and sweet boy. I'm praying for a miracle.

Buddy is a sweet 12 year old boy, mixed pit and husky. He is 40 pounds and a real relaxed and loyal companion. He has been a country dog all his life. Would be a great friend for a person that wants a quiet, easy dog that likes to snuggle.

URGENT - Herndon, VA - Home needed for 2 male cats (Bobby, grey, is 8 months old, and White Spot, black, is about 4 years old). Both are neutered and have vaccines. They need to be placed by July 15th! The family is moving back to Indonesia for family reasons, and were planning to take them with them, but are afraid they will die in quarantine - strict laws bringing them into Indonesia.

Both of them are very sweet loving companion to their 9 year old son that plays with them all the time. They never scratch him, even when he plays rough with them, they love him and follow him wherever he goes.

Please, please, help them find a good home for their kitties. The cats come with a lot of toys, Halloween and Christmas costume, cat condo, sleeping pillow and sleeping nest, litter box, and cat food for as long as you need.

Please contact Novi at Cell 571-492-8134/Home 571-287-7747 if you are interested. Or contact us if you can foster them.

REHOME NEEDED - Located in Arlington, VA - Clyde is a wonderful Maine Coon male cat, born April 2015. He has had a lot of trouble adjusting to living with another cat. His family got him as kitten when he was about 12 weeks old.

When he first arrived, he got along with their older cat, who is 13 years old. However, as he got older he started to spray in the house to mark his territory. We kept thinking it would get better once he got neutered. The marking stopped for a little while once he was neutered, but it started again soon after. They feel if he is placed in a home where he is the only cat, he will be fine and the need to mark his space will not continue. He is a friendly cat, he likes to be with the family and the action. He's not a lap cat but if you are in the living room watching TV he will want to sit with the family. He likes cat treats in the morning, he is very playful with cat toys. Besides the spraying and marking he is a perfect cat.

If you are able to assist, let me knowo and I will put you in contact with the family.

Looking for home or foster for Leo. He is a 10 year old, deaf, senior, front declawed, all-white male. He lived in a rural area where he was allowed to go outside with his mom who is now suffering from late stage Alzheimer's disease. He and the mother were brought here to Northern Virginia so her daughters could care for her. Leo is a friendly cat. He is accustomed to being able to go out. He escaped and was hit by a car, fracturing his pelvis. While he is healthy and has healed nicely, he still cannot resist the urge to go out. We are looking for a family with a catio or screened in porch in a low traffic area. He gets along with other cats. He has not been around dogs. Leo is neutered, and up-to-date on all medical.

Thanks,

On October 23, 2014 Kim Schiller lost his fight with lung cancer. Dr. Kim David Schiller DVM left us Thursday, October 23, 2014. He was a successful man. Kim served his country for 20 years. He was a veterinarian. Life was good for him. Then he was diagnosed with cancer. This disease not only affected his body by took away his livelihood. He closed his practice, auctioned off his home and he sold his insurance policies. He lived on Social Security for the past two years. Sadly this man died impoverished. That is a tragedy. Rest in Peace.. I pay tribute to this lovely man because I am grateful for his compassion and love for animals, his service to his country and his continued support of the rescue cause. He was made a difference in his dedication and generosity. My group Homestretch Rescue benefited from his skill and desire to help animals in need. He was a gentle man...I was blessed to know him. I thank all veterinarians for being there to save lives, improve quality of life for our furry friends and in sad circumstances, assist us in letting them go. Veterinarians, vet techs and all that work in animal hospitals are committed and deserve recognition. I am grateful you're there.

I found a sweet, loving, intelligent six week old tortoiseshell three weeks ago in central Alabama and hope to find a warm, loving home for her. Any chance you can offer any advice on how I can do that?
