Many dogs arrive at the Farm and need to stay
awhile in order to rebuild their trust in humans or be better socialized
with other dogs and/or people. Their issues are often not big ones
but the time they need here can last anywhere from one month to six
Additionally, almost 99% of the dogs coming
into rescue have issues with men. This always surprises people but if you
think for a moment...women don't generally hit dogs...men do, so the dogs
carry that fear into this situation based on their history. It can
often take months to help them trust, which is what John painstakingly
One dog was so terrified that it took John 3 hours, just
sitting in the car, before the dog would even move from the back of the
truck. He was paralyzed with fear just by John's presence.
Slowly but surely, day after day, literally hour after hour, he grew to
Our philosophy is
to give these dogs the time they need to recalibrate their
behaviors and learn new associations with people. The cost of
ongoing care is high. Just like any family dog, needs arise and we
must handle them, whether it's antibiotics, blood chemistry analysis, or
shots, these dogs require more from us.
We estimate $350 a for a 6 month
stay at the Farm as our
cost of care for every dog entering the Farm. Some costs are much
higher, especially with these Seniors in the Farmhouse
Please choose a dog that pulls at your heart and we'll happily apply
your funds to their care and update you accordingly, especially when
they are adopted!

To Foster, Volunteer and/or Transport
The Rescue world is comprised of
volunteers who love the breed or just want
to help animals. We appreciate anyone who is interested in helping us carry out
the work at Glen Highland Farm because there's no way we could ever do it alone.
There are people near and far who help
transport dogs between states, insuring that the dogs can come from pounds all
over to get to us, sometimes by car, sometimes by air. No matter how they
arrive, without each person doing their part in the 'dog chain', these dogs
would not survive. Each person drives a distance of approximately 1-2 hours in
most cases so it’s not a burden on any one person.
So, if you'd like to help, please
consider TRANSPORT. All you need is to provide us with your phone and email and
whatever distances and areas you're willing to cover and we'll contact you
whenever the need arises to move a dog. If you're called and cannot help out,
that's okay, maybe another time will
WE ARE ALWAYS IN NEED OF TRANSPORT HELP
SINCE DOGS COME FROM NEW JERSEY, CONNECTICUT, LONG ISLAND, NYC AND OTHER NEARBY
Many people really want to help dogs
directly so they FOSTER. A dog or two will live in your home for one to 9 months until a new home is found. You provide the love, the food and shelter, and
help the dog in whatever ways possible. If you can teach obedience like sit,
stay and come, that's very helpful to getting the dog ready for a new home.
GHF is expanding the foster program
and looking for additional homes within TWO hours of the Farm who are
willing to care for a dog. (All vetting is handled by the Farm)
Foster dogs could be young or old and may require a long-term stay up to 9
months, depending on the dog. Fencing is required and children must be
over the age
of 7, no exceptions.

WE ARE ALWAYS IN NEED OF FOSTER HOMES
SINCE THERE ARE SO MANY DOGS NEEDING HELP.
Other people really like to get involved
at Glen Highland Farm as a VOLUNTEER. If you'd like to help with the dozen
rescue dogs onsite, we're glad to have extra hands for feeding, walking,
exercising and playing. If you love dogs, this is a great place to be.
ways to volunteer are in helping with mailings, with internet research or
with transport coordination. If you have a special skill, we’re always open to
whatever you’d like to do. For example, some people have graphics backgrounds
and offer to design logos or brochures or the website; other people have
connections for food, supplies and other dog items, so they organize items
coming to us.
WE VALUE WHATEVER YOU WANT TO BRING TO
THE RESCUE WORK AND HOPE THAT YOU WANT TO JOIN US IN HELPING THESE GREAT DOGS!
