Few Steps From Home is "rescue friendly".  We will work with other rescues to help the animals.  If a pure-bred dog comes into our system, we will happily accept help from pure-bred rescues since they specialize in that breed, as well as networking with many rescues across the usa to help animals in need.  This will leave us open to help the many mixed breeds out there that need us. 
Remember, if rescues will all work together, we can help so many more.
