What does The Rescue Society do?
The Rescue Society is a 501(c)(3), not for profit, public charitable, scientific and educational organization that serves public interests and provides services beneficial to the public interest through research, training, and animal adoption, where people and animals benefit simultaneously.
The Rescue Society exists to serve, support and applaud various special interests or special needs environments, situations and people. The Rescue Society is passionate and resolved to make the world a better place by addressing, quantifying and qualifying the amazing and miraculous value that the human-dog bond connection and its utilitarian values possess and present and combining in all its forms and functions which elevates and provides greater potential to the overall plight of the human race for both humans and dogs.
The Rescue Society was set up to serve animals, particularly dogs, and people. The Rescue Society goals are to create helpful & useful, advantageous solutions for both animals and people concurrently and alternative opportunities to support and assist animals and people in various, unique and special circumstances and situations.
The purpose of The Rescue Society is to reach, teach, touch, help, harbor, defend, support and save the many and the one, both human and animal.
One at a time and as many as we can, The Rescue Society exists and hopes to help make a positive difference in the lives of both human beings and animals so they may achieve their highest potential.
The Rescue Society is also a scientific organization grouping that conducts scientific canine behavior research for public benefit.
The Rescue Society is an educational organization that instructs the public on topics for which there are sufficient facts to permit the formation of an independent opinion or conclusion. These opinions are developed through The Rescue Society's assessment of a “Pertinent Research Best Practices Study of the Varied, Applied Uses of Canines in Diverse Differentiating Applications and Environments”.
The scientific research The Rescue Society is conducting is ongoing canine behavior study to develop best practices, higher standards and an understanding of the applicability principles for working dogs in various, differentiating environments utilizing pertinent research to establish alternative policies for proactive and productive pilot initiatives that test new program models for solutions to environmental and economic activities.
A woman was brutally raped and taken hostage, only to be discarded back on the streets after being assaulted and horrifically molested for 24 hours by 2 savage psychopathic monsters. This woman’s’ attackers have never been apprehended by the police and, prior to being provided a S.A.F.E. DAWG-SAFE and FRIENDLY ENFORCEMENT DAWG, trained to deter any would be thugs, this brave and courageously beautiful young lady would not leave her house at all whatsoever. With a S.A.F.E. DAWG provided by The Rescue Society through FrogDawgz, all that is behind her now. With the help of her trusty and loving K9 companion, the young lady can once again begin to live a productive life where she feels safe and secure. The dog that The Rescue Society provided to this victim rescued this woman and gave her back her freedom and security.
Let’s not forget about our unsung heroes who served and fought for our country. There’s the Iraqi war veteran who is suffering with PTSD and is currently hospitalized at the VA hospital where he isn’t allowed any visitors. Depression is the order of the day for this poor fella until Odin, a 200 pound English mastiff-Great Dane mix who is a trained animal assisted pet partner therapy dog, walks into his room. The vet forgets everything and is instantaneously consumed with happiness and a gigantic smile broadens across the formerly sullen face of this troubled soul. This day, this veteran decided to change his life and get out of the VA hospital. He made a choice that day to move on. Now he wanted to get on with his life and get a dog. His motivation to plug back into life was a dog and his desire to get back on his feet and get a dog of his own that he could love.
Odin, a dog trained through the T.O.U.C.H. DAWGZ program from FrogDawgz, was provided through The Rescue Society's “Reach Out and Touch” national curriculum program. Odin rescued the veteran that day and gave him a sense of hope and happiness. He has since gotten out of the VA hospital, established himself with a place to live and employment and has visited a local animal shelter where he adopted a dog. He now jogs regularly before work around Prospect Park with his new doggie and his new lease on life.
One of The Rescue Society's strategies is, through the use of research and education, to develop, provide and implement real world solutions for real world opportunities that are unconventional alternatives utilizing innovative ideas, plans, proposals, programs, projects, inventions and enterprises that provide and produce alternative long term solutions to the causes of crisis’s, predicaments and dilemmas as well as constructive, helpful and encouraging solutions that are bridge builders and breech repairers to the roads of opportunity for the future.
Through research and education, quantifying and qualifying the amalgamation of dogs and people, The Rescue Society seeks to provide canine behavior studies and pertinent research to develop best practices and higher standards and understanding of the applicability opportunities and principles for working dogs in various, differentiating environments, conducting and utilizing research and education, quantifying and qualifying the amalgamation of dogs and people to demonstrate the extremely advantageous role that the human-dog bond supports in the overall health and well being, productivity and stability of the two participants actively involved concomitantly.
The Rescue Society utilizes pertinent research methodologies to establish alternative policies for proactive and productive pilot initiatives that test new program models for solutions to environmental and economic activities, globally and locally.
Utilizing a varied, broad, vast network or web of extensive, expansive and wide ranging interdependent relationships and interests, The Rescue Society successes are anchored in capitalizing on leveraging the unique specialties between various groups in providing access to assets and resources, organizations and associations to produce real world, effective results, solutions and successes.
The Rescue Society is steeped in highly trained, educated, and experienced personnel with many years of military, law enforcement, government and private sector knowledge and practice in form and function. The Rescue Society's management, governance practices and passion are driven and predicated by moral, ethical, altruistic values and intentions that secure significant value based opportunities for human beings and their canine companions. The Rescue Society's commitment to excellence and great results dictates the protocols for assessing program impact.
The Rescue Society is a coalition of diverse rescue interests uniquely positioned to effect rescue solutions worldwide as necessary. The Rescue Society is a collaborative amalgam of various, different, assorted types of K9 rescue activities. Animal rescue, therapy rescue, victim/survivor rescue, rural search & rescue, urban disaster and wreckage search and rescue, children and adult hostage rescue, personal companion dog rescue and professional working dog rescue.
As we move into the 21st Century, "RESCUE", in its many different forms and functions, has at its center, one commonality, albeit seemingly inconsequential, and that is the K9. Man’s best friend. From therapy dogs, to seeing eye dogs to drug and bomb sniffing dogs to search & rescue dogs and protection dogs to bed bug dogs and dogs that alert their master to take medicine or help them open a door, dogs play a major and significant role in the life of human beings in many different capacities. Many of these roles are rescue related. Search & rescue dogs were invaluable on 9-11, in Japan after the earthquake, and all over the world for many disasters regularly, and, unfortunately, reoccurring with much more frequency in today’s world. And dog's need our help too.
The Rescue Society will serve and provide many different services to people and animals who need to be rescued in many different capacities.

THE ABSOLUTE NEED FOR PERTINENT RESEARCH
In summary, characteristics such as preparation, knowledge or experience are ignored in efforts to reform systems and it has been a serious mistake. A more pertinent research questions is: Under what circumstances do policies matter? How can practices be changed to expand opportunities and solutions for learning, growth, change and reformation?
The pertinent question is not whether policy can make a difference but how policy can be optimized for real world applications as alternative solutions utilizing pilot initiatives that test new program models that promote collaborative efforts among groups and organizations. Programs addressing long-term solutions to the causes of problems, as distinguished from programs that simply treat the symptoms of problems are opportunities to pursue a deliberate and proactive course of "strategic philanthropy".
“Informed Dialogue: Using Research to Shape Education Policy Around the World” by Fernando Reimers and Noel McGinn
The question about the fit between research and policy is therefore more pertinent regarding certain types of educational research. The more pertinent research is designed to anticipate the consequences of actions.
This is what we understand as policy research as opposed to research designed to explain why the world is the way it is without describing how it could be made to be different. Much education research is not designed to inform choices and therefore provides an inadequate, or at least insufficient, basis for policy.
Descriptive or explanatory research can be generalized only to what is, not to new situations the policy maker wants to create. The limitations on descriptive and explanatory research for policy are seen in the experience with using research on learning to design teacher training programs.
During the last 20 years, research on the determinants of student achievement has tried to sort out the relative influences of various school inputs and processes. Summaries of these production function studies have attempted to establish best predictors.
