Our mission at Outta the Cage is to help people see shelter dogs as individuals. We travel to shelters, where we video dogs in play yards and open areas. We then share these videos on social media and on our web site, enlisting people to spread the word. We also share information and best practices on how to network shelter dogs, offering field-proven tips for successful advocacy, foster, adoption, and networking. Outta the Cage is directly involved in our community, fostering "hard to adopt" dogs, and working with other rescues to find adopters. We prioritize "at risk" animals including seniors, sick, and special-needs dogs, and so-called dominant breeds. From time to time we also advise shelters, animal advocacy organizations, and private companies on the application of information technology to animal rescue.
