Forget those purebred puppies they show on TV.

Daisy’s New Beginnings is a 501c 3 nonprofit zone that helps provide emergency medical care to homeless animals at our local pet shelters and rescues, including It Takes a Village No-Kill Rescue, New Hope Rescue and PAAWS. Daisy’s New Beginnings is passionate about helping.

Whether it’s helping a dog in a shelter get the medical care they need so they can find a loving home or simply trying to find an owner for a companion dog that makes every day happier. Our mission is to provide the financial assistance needed to create new beginnings for the dogs and people who need our help most.

When a shelter or rescue center receives a dog that requires major medical attention in order to become eligible for adoption, our mission is to help provide the financial resources necessary to make this happen.


Muttminster Rescue Dog Show winners will be determined with a percentage of their total votes coming from online voting (keep scrolling to vote in three categories: best dressed, best smiles and best hair). In addition to online voting, scores will be calculated on the day of the show by a panel of esteemed judges and animal rescue advocates.
