Rescue is the New Black.®
Founded in 2013, Mr. Bones & Co., is a volunteer based 501(c)3 animal welfare non-profit based in the greater New York City area and the Hudson Valley region of upstate NY. Our main function is canine rescue, via One Lucky Pup, our signature rescue, rehabilitation and adoption program. OLP specializes in 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. We focus on the quality of our cases, not the quantity. By keeping our program small, typically no more than fifteen dogs at a time, we are able to put an intensive amount of attention into each dog and evaluate their needs intimately to determine their best home. This individualized plan of care enhances the adoption process, making 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. We award 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. We believe animal welfare is a community effort and work hard to be part of the bigger picture.
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.
