Rescue-Rehab-Rehome Program

Rescue dogs often come from difficult backgrounds, facing neglect, abuse, or abandonment and often carry emotional scars from their past experiences. While their resilience and capacity for love are remarkable, many of these dogs require training and rehabilitation to overcome their past traumas and develop the necessary skills to thrive in a human world. At ISWMP, we are committed to providing these dogs with a fair chance of finding their forever homes through comprehensive training programs; however, we need your support to make this possible.

Training and rehabilitation play a vital role in transforming rescue dogs into well-behaved, emotionally balanced, confident companions. It helps them overcome behavioral issues such as anxiety, fear, and aggression, setting them up for success. Our experienced partner trainers work patiently with each dog, teaching them basic obedience commands, socialization skills, and how to adapt to different environments. Training not only enhances their chances of being adopted but also strengthens the bond between the dog and their future family.

Success Stories


Pitbull mix Eddie came to us scared and reactive. He did not enjoy going on walks or being around new people or dogs. Due to this fear and reactivity, Eddie was having real trouble finding his forever family and it was looking like he might not be adoptable. Luckily for Eddie, we were able to have him go to trainer John for help! While with John, Eddie learned that when he had a person who took charge and showed him the way, he felt safer; he started enjoying walks and even the company of some other dogs. Without training intervention, Eddie may never have been suitable for adoption, but the time Eddie spent with John allowed him to open up and find the perfect forever home who love him for exactly who he is!

When we rescued Bruno he was so terrified and shut down that he could not walk. He had to be carried (by multiple people) every time he needed to be moved. Beyond his medical needs, Bruno desperately needed the help of a trainer to teach him the world was a safe place and that he did not need to be afraid all of the time. Without some serious help, Bruno would never have been a dog that was suitable to be adopted into a home. Trainer Angela stepped up to the task, and took her time getting to know Bruno and develop a relationship with him. Her calm guidance and patient touch allowed Bruno to come out of his shell and realize that people were good and kind. He now lives in a loving home with other dogs and a mom and dad who absolutely adore him. He likes to lay out in the sun with his canine siblings and has become an affectionate and talkative boy!

Milo was adopted at 12 weeks old as a scruffy ball of adorable puppy. As he grew, it became clear that he was quite a nervous dog, but his owners sadly did not recognize or address his anxiety in any way. This anxiety and fear caused Milo to become reactive to new people and even to members of his own family when his boundaries were not respected. When this reactivity became too much, he was returned to the rescue after three years of being in a home. Poor Milo was scared and confused, and definitely not adoptable in his current state. Thankfully for Milo, Trainer Lia was willing to take him in and help him through his overwhelming fear and anxiety. With patience and consideration, Lia was able to help Milo out of his shell and to begin to understand him better. She established that Milo is an independent and “cat like” dog who would be best in a quiet home with people who respect his personal space – and that he loves puppies! With this insight, Milo is ready and looking for his perfect forever home.
