Trust, Devotion and Loyalty -- Our Best Friend

Approved ShelterEast Coast Asian Dog Rescue, Inc.(E.C.A.D.R., Inc.) was established to rescue Pekingese, Pugs, Japanese Chins, Shih Tzus, and other toy/small Asian breeds from kill shelters, abusive situations, and voluntary surrenders. Unlike most breed rescues, E.C.A.D.R., Inc. will accept mixes into the program if they visually have a dominant feature of one of the Asian breeds. We place these dogs in foster homes until permanent homes can be found and ensure that each of the dogs in our care is healthy, neutered or spayed, and up-to-date on all vaccinations. E.C.A.D.R., Inc. is a non-profit organization and 100% of the donations go to help our rescues.…more
