Rescue is the New Black.®
Founded in 2013, Mr. Bones & Co., is an all-volunteer based 501(c)3 animal welfare non-profit supporting animal rescue and advocacy in our own backyard of New York City, as well as on a national and global level. Our main function is canine rescue, via our One Lucky Pup, our signature rescue, rehabilitation and adoption program. While we emphasize Pit Bull rescue, we accept all breeds into our program, particularly dogs facing extraordinary challenges, whether it be extensive emergency veterinary care/surgery, unfair breed discrimination or those languishing in municipal shelters with behavioral issues that make them harder to place. Our experience in the deepest of these rescue trenches gives us keen insight into understanding the challenges of animal welfare, and as such, we hone in on the quality of our cases, not the quantity. By keeping our program small, typically no more than fifteen dogs at one time, we put an intensive amount of attention into each dog, evaluating the needs of each dog to determine their best home. This individualized plan of care enhances the adoption process and makes less room for negative variables to occur post-adoption.
MBC also provides support to existing shelters and rescue groups via outreach initiatives including spay/neuter events, fundraising, and adoption support. MBC awards numerous grants each year for a variety of services; pet care and emergency assistance to low income families, adoption training to help harder to place dogs find homes, and assistance to selfless animal rescuers doing what they can on their own.
Our Signature Adoption Program
To fully grasp the challenges of animal rescue and better understand the needs of the organizations we assist, we also function as our own rescue via our signature adoption program, One Lucky Pup.
OLP includes a global outreach initiative that has rescued and rehabilitated stray dogs from the Bahamas and Iraq, and then successfully placed them in loving homes within the United States.
Leading By Example
Leading by example is a powerful tool. Teaching our children to respect animals sets the tone for the way they treat each other and builds the foundation for the type of adults they grow up to become. As adults, reminding each other that it is our obligation to help when we can opens the door for a chain of random acts of kindness that creates a much needed dialogue. The very basic notion of this concept of kindness is animal welfare.
