Pet Harbor Rescue, P.O. Box 73, Bowling Green, VA 22427

History & Mission

If you are a shelter or pound and would like brochures we have prepared to educate your potential adopters of Siberian huskies about the breed, send us a note with your address and how many brochures.

What exactly is Pet Harbor Rescue?

Pet Harbor Rescue is lots of things. If you examine us closely, though, you will see three primary categories within Pet Harbor Rescue:

  1. Our critters (those Siberian huskies seeking homes and those who found homes)
  2. Our board of directors and officers
  3. Our volunteers

What does Pet Harbor Rescue do?

Together we do many things. Our primary mission is to save the lives of Siberian huskies in danger (when it is within our ability to do so) in Virginia and surrounding area and find them homes. Our focus is on those Siberians on death row in shelters.

Pet Harbor is a nonstock, nonprofit Virginia animal rescue organization. We operate by donation and volunteers. We have no paid employees. Our veterinary bills and the donations we receive are not balanced at all! The animals in our care are fostered in homes. We do not have a shelter facility but have as a future goal a no-kill shelter.

We are a Siberian husky rescue organization.
