At Rescue Treats® we bake all-natural dog treats then donate the profits to dog rescues. Our treats contain nothing artificial. No junk, no fillers, no preservatives, and no artificial ingredients.
Meet Our Team:
"I was rescued as a puppy from a puppy mill and raised by a loving foster failure family. This made me want to help out other less-fortunate dogs. I like to share my treats. Especially with Chase, since he beats me in every race we bet on..."
"They say im part Yorkie, or part Bichon Frise... Whatever, I could never see anyway. Blind since birth. All I know is that they call me Spot and it makes people laugh. Dallas says she sees my spots, but she isn't so sure."
"I don't like my ears. My previous owners tried to make me look 'tough' but they failed because my heart shaped nose is too cute to be 'tough.' My anxiety about it makes me not want to do much... However, Gordo gave me his bandana and it hugs me constantly making me feel better."
"What did you say?! Seriously! I think you said something, but I am not sure. I want to have Spot's ears, but again he says he wants my eyes. Whatever, Dallas says I'm the best listener."
"My diaper helps me prevent accidents. I'm not as young as Gordo, but he says I'm 'nimble as a fox...' I think he means 'wolf,' but I'm not going to correct him cause he seems so happy. Millenial dogs..."
"See my wheelchair? It doesn't slow me down, just makes me faster! Hilda says I am the fastest dog in the world. She says it very loudly though, it might be her hearing."
