Our Mission Statement
Our mission is to establish a national rescue network that can assist in rescuing and re-homing purebred Papillons. This network includes PCART volunteers, regional breed clubs, breeders and fanciers.
PCA Rescue Trust will provide ongoing information, education and support to interested pet owners, clubs, breeders and fanciers to ensure effective humane rescue of any Papillon in need. This is a volunteer effort created for the welfare and protection of the Papillon breed. We support and encourage the effort of clubs, organizations and individuals to rescue purebred Papillons from any type of animal shelter, pound, private home, veterinarian's office or owner surrender.
We are dedicated to finding responsible and loving homes for Papillons. We support spaying and neutering of pets. We do our best to provide counseling and information on education and training, both as part of our placement efforts and to help current Papillon owners deal with problem behaviors rather than give up their dog. We strive to inform prospective Papillon owners of the characteristics and requirements of the breed before they acquire a Papillon. Education is the key to a hoped-for future in which purebred Papillons will no longer need any rescue program.
The Trust and its representatives will not engage in any assistance to wholesale puppy breeders, pet shops or any other commercial business in any way related to dog activities.
Goal and Objective
To find responsible and loving homes for Papillons whose owners are no longer able or willing to care for them.
To coordinate with local clubs and individuals in the rescue of Papillons in their area.
To educate potential owners about Papillons and their special requirements so that they can make a knowledgeable decision when selecting this breed.
To help owners keep their Papillons in their homes when appropriate by providing counseling in how to solve problems and by encouraging them to use their breeders as a source of support and information.
To maintain records for Papillons that come into PCA Rescue Trust to allow reporting to the PCART Board on accomplishments and make projections for future needs.
To educate animal control officers and shelter staff on how to identify Papillons and the special requirements and characteristics of the breed to aid in proper placement.
To conduct ourselves in a way that supports the responsible breeding, placement and care of Papillons.
