about

1000 Orphans was established as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in an effort to raise badly needed funds for struggling animal rescues internationally.   Although improving in some places, education and policies that address the issue of stray and abandoned dogs remains lacking in most parts of the world. 

Rescues of varying scales and abilities exist in both developed and still-developing countries.  Unfortunately, without a comprehensive  approach to change, the concern of these dogs' welfare remains daunting and overwhelming to those who have made a commitment, be they collectively or individually, to improving conditions.
 

Our place in this purpose is in the raising of funds to provide partnership and support to rescue shelters and organizations that confront the realities of stray and abandoned dogs on a daily basis.  It is our hope that with an increased effort in education on responsible breeding and adoption, as well as the improvement in shelter conditions and capabilities, our concerted effort will make an effectual difference in the well-being of abandoned dogs and their care-givers, while reducing the population of homeless dogs over time.
