Throwaway Pups, established in July of 2008, by Brandy Barnes and Jessica Munoz, is proud to introduce our new website. Please pass along the news of our new website so that we can continue to rescue dogs and puppies in need!! We are located in the heart of the Adirondacks in Upstate NY, but we rescue dogs from all over. The majority of our pups come from North and South Carolina. We do accept out of state adoptions. Transport may be available if you are interested in adopting but not with in driving distance just send us an email to find out if it can be arranged. Thanks for your support!
Please help stay a float. Throwaway Pups has hit quite a few financial bumps in the road and we need as much help as possible!
Throwaway Pups is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. All donations are tax deductable. Our Tax Exempt Number is 26-3271679. Please note that adoption fees are not considered tax deductable donations. Thanks for your support!
If you are interested in adopting any of our dogs, please go to the Application page to fill out an application. Please only fill out an application if you are serious about adoption. You must be atleast 18 to adopt. If you are under 18, please have a parent fill out the application, as we will need to speak to them. If you are interested in adopting but do not see a dog that interests you, please fill out an application anyway, we may be able to find what you are looking for!!
All of our pups now come with 30 days of free Pet Health Insurance provided by Shelter Care and 24Petwatch.

"Lassie, Cleo, Rin Tin Tin and Toto don't show up in a Rescue shelter. We don't get the elegantly coiffed, classically beautiful, completely trained, or perfectly behaved dog or cat. We get the leftovers. Animals that other people have incompetently bred, inadequately socialized, ineffectively "trained," and badly treated. Most Rescue dogs and cats have had it. They've been pushed from one lousy situation to another. They've never had proper veterinary care, kind and consistent training, or sufficient company. They've lived outside, in a crate, or in the basement. They're scared, depressed and anxious. Some are angry. Some are sick. Some have given up. But we are an Animal Rescue and we don't give up. We know that they are living beings, with a spirit, a heart and feelings. Our animals are not commodities, things, or garbage. They are part of sacred creation and they deserve as much love and care and respect as the next Westminster champion. So please, please don't come to rescue a dog or cat in the hopes of getting a "bargain," or indeed of "getting" anything. Come to rescue to give, to love, to save a life and to mend your own spirit. For Rescue will reward you in ways you never thought possible. We can promise you this -- a rescue dog or cat will make you a better person." Author Unknown

Through The Eyes of the Transporter....
By Brandy Barnes (www.throwawaypupsrescue.org)
The endless phone calls, the multiple emails, pulled in many directions, time restraints and pressures, to know so many animals depend on you.To drive to the hell holes of the "land of free" more like the land of euthanasia.To walk up and down the halls, 100's of dogs looking at me "are you here for me?" Having to tell so many of them sorry, I stop and pet each one, some of them tug so deeply at my heart, that I call many of my rescue friends to beg them for room, and when I have to leave them behind I cry and tell them I will try for next time, most of the time there is no next time, the ones that make the ride show there appreciation in their eyes and with lots of kisses.This is for ones I leave behind I AM SORRY.For those who ask what time will I be there, I will get there when I get there, I have so many to say goodbye to.
We are always in need of donations, if you are not looking to adopt but would like to help save a throwaway pup, please consider a donation. We are always in need of leashes, collars, blankets, bedding, and paper bowls so please don't feel like money is the only way to help the pups. If you have any items to donate, please contact Brandy at email@example.com to set up a time for delivery or pick up of items. Any help is greatly appreciated!!
