Moving to Central New York, advice on rescues?

Hi everyone! When I joined this forum in 2004, I lived in GA and I met a moderator at my place of employment and he told me about this forum. Since then, I have lived in Lansing, MI and Rochester, NH. Now, my husband will be working at Cornell (Geneva campus) and I am looking at rescues that I can volunteer with and eventually, when we buy a house, foster through. I contacted Animal Farm Foundation and they didn't have any advice. I had worked with Pit Prints in GA when I knew nothing of dogs and she successfully placed a dog in a wonderful home for me, BUT she was a fraud and was closed down. Now, I am paranoid about honesty, standards of placement, etc... AFF seemed reluctant to say anything at all, perhaps a political move. I don't know the reputations locally, and if I did in the case with PitPrints, I would have met people who had strong feelings about her. I met one person that felt negative, but it seemed to be hearsay and differences of philosophy in dog handling. So, there are a few rescues in the area.

Does anyone have any experience with the following:

http://www.recycleabull.com/

These two are the closest.

Thanks for any input!
Heather

I don't personally have any knowledge of rescues out that way, but one of our members (lilangel) lives out that way, I think. He doesn't post anymore, but maybe somebody who keeps in touch with him would help get you some info?

You could also try contacting Out of the Pits in Albany, NY. They really are a great rescue, and they might have some contacts out that way who could help! Good luck!

Thanks for the response. I noticed that niether of the them are fans of eachother on facebook which is strange to me in this age of networking, esp. When they are so close. I will try your suggestions. Thanks again.

Thanks so much for all this great info. We are actually looking for land right now with some room bc of our desire to own and foster pitbulls and I want to posdibly do some boarding or something to raise dome funds for a rescue too. I also wonder about adoption rates bc some groups are mire successful than others at placing dogs too.
