Did you know that there are four to six thousand animal shelters
and rescue groups in the United States?

And six to eight million homeless cats and dogs?

Of that number, approximately half are euthanized --

that means between three and four million dogs and cats die for no other reason than they are in a shelter that cannot afford the space or money to keep them.

-Statistics by the Humane Society of the United States







"Calliope Rescue helps when so many others would not. They don't see the possibilities of problems, they see opportunities for solutions. If more shelters and rescues cared even half as much as Calliope Rescue, there would be a lot more happily homed kitties in this world!"

Calliope Rescue is an all volunteer, no-kill rescue organization.
We operate through a network of foster homes to rescue, rehabilitate and adopt out abandoned,
neglected and homeless animals.

We mediate between other rescue groups, shelters, and the general public to place these animals into forever homes. Our goal is to match an animal with a permanent family; enhancing both of their lives. Calliope Rescue relies on volunteers, empowering them to be an integral part of fulfilling our mission.

We pledge to inspire the community to show kindness towards all animals.
