New Beginnings K9 Rescue -  Our mission is to increase public awareness towards the growing population of neglected and abandoned dogs due to over breeding. We will be our K-9 companions voice!

Who we are: 
New Beginnings K-9 Rescue is a privately run non-profit canine rescue organization located in Loudonville, Ohio. We strive to make a difference in every animals life that makes it into our rescue. As a dog comes in, he/she is taken to our primary veterinarian for an evaluation. We treat for internal and external parasites and new animals are in quarintine for 10 days to monitor health and behavior. Prior to adoption, the animal will receive a negative heartworm test/+ preventative, any medical conditions or surgeries are provided and paid for, all animals are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, parasite free, microchip and basic obedience training. Our goal is to save and help every animal we are physically and financially able to through medical care, education, love, patience and fundraising. Our goal is to create a better life for every abused, neglected and discarded animal in our care and to educate about proper companion animal care. Our dream is that one day we won't have to.

Cat Close Up

TNR Program

Community cats (stray or feral)
are cats with no specific owner
or place to call home.
They need spayed or neutered to control the population.

ATTENTION DOG OWNERS....Prior to arrival at the clinic for your appointment, please remember that your dog should have nothing to eat after midnight the night prior to surgery.

DOGS are admitted at 8:00 am: Upon arrival,  we ask that you take a moment with your dog and give them an opportunity to potty. After placing your dog back in the car, enter the clinic and check in with staff.

Complete paperwork if not already completed online.  Wait for staff to tell you when it is the right time for you to retrieve your dog for admission.

Bring your dog into clinic when asked to do so. Your dog will be met by a staff member and weighed. After an accurate weight is obtained, you will be asked to make payment before leaving.

Black and White Kitten

Reservations for Cats in Traps can now be booked online at www.alterclinicac.com

until all designated spots are filled! 

  • If the cat in a trap is not going to be returned to its natural habitat, is able to be safely handled and/or is going to be adopted, it does not qualify for our TNR program.  Please make an appointment for these cats.

  • For your safety and our staff’s safety, ALL Community cats MUST be delivered in a humane trap to receive the discounted TNR pricing.  

  • Public clients who come to us without reservations will be admitted beginning at 9:30 am Tuesday each week after reserved and trappers are admitted/accounted for on a first come, first served basis if there are still spots available.

  • An open trap, with hopes of catching a cat later in the day, does not count as a cat in a trap and a reserved spot can not be held for an empty cage.

  • Community cats will have their ears tipped.  This is a universal indication to other TNR participants that this cat has already been altered and that the cat, if trapped, should be released.  Full surgical rates apply if ear tip is declined.

  • Community cats will also receive a rabies vaccination at no additional charge.

  • Surgery will be performed as soon as possible, dependent upon the time the animal arrives at the clinic and our surgery load.

  • Community cats will stay the night after their surgery in the clinic to give them time to rest and remain quiet. 

  • They will have food and water provided, as well as be kept warm/cool, clean and dry.

  • Our staff will call you to let you know when to pick up trapped cat and taken to their natural habitat and released.

 

Humane Traps are available at AlterClinic.  A $35.00 fully refundable check or cash deposit is required. Donations to cover administrative costs would be appreciated. 

 Please call to reserve one.
