Our Rescue Partners

It has been said that keeping up with animal rescue is like emptying the ocean with a teaspoon.  When one group of people attempt it all on their own that certainly proves true.  But when rescue groups, donors, drivers, and event volunteers all work together we can accomplish amazing things!

Listed below are some of the groups Steele Away Home – Canine Foster and Rescue partners with so we can keep saving dogs in our area.

Local Affiliations

Cedarwood Veterinary Hospital

Cedarwood has been providing services to Steele Away Home since July 2017.  Dr. Sandra O’Connor D.V.M. works tirelessly to help the needy animals of our county and has been a good friend to Steele Away Home.

The Newport Animal Control

N.A.C. no longer runs a “shelter” and does not accept owner surrenders, but they do try to adopt out unclaimed stray animals that are picked up and brought to their holding facility.

SAH Fosters have provided day-camp training classes to select inmates at N.A.C. in hopes of getting them accepted by Universal K9 which trains pit bulls as police dogs.  N.A.C. has become a feeder agency for U-K9.

Steele Away Home does pull dogs from N.A.C. when the need arises.

A New Jersey non profit organization comprised of volunteers who give selflessly and open their hearts and their homes, as a stepping stone to the permanent home every rescue animal dreams of.  They are not a shelter: each of their rescues are cared for in the warmth of their foster homes, as they help them on their journey waiting for the place they can call their own.  This is a frequent destination for The Shelter’s Rolling Rescue van.
