New Jersey Schnauzer Rescue Network
Since its creation, NJSRN has had a single mission: Finding permanent, loving homes for Miniature Schnauzers and Schnauzer mixes throughout the northeastern United States.
As part of our mission, NJSRN provides charitable and educational services by:
- Assessing each dog's potential for permanent placement;
- Ensuring that a dog's veterinary needs are met;
- Providing quality temporary (foster) care;
- Making the best possible match between dog and adopter;
- Providing follow-up information and training to adoptive families;
- Promoting responsible dog ownership;
- Educating potential and current Miniature Schnauzer owners about breed characteristics, proper care and nutrition, health issues, training, and behavior; and
- Providing referrals only to Miniature Schnauzer breeders who promote responsible breeding, including performing basic health checks and screening for PRA.
NJSRN will never euthanize a dog that enters our rescue program because a permanent home is not readily available - we will keep the dog in our program until we find the right home. Because of age, illness, or other issues, we may decide to allow a dog to live out its life in foster care - as a permanent part of our rescue program - rather than placing it into an adoptive home.
