Who We Are
Home Again Dalmatian Rescue is an incorporated not for profit rescue in the state of Alabama and working on the state of Mississippi. We were originally based in Fayette County Alabama but now run in Vaiden, MS.. Our Alabama sector has now been moved to Hartselle AL and is directed by Gilda Turner.. Our other location in Vaiden, MS is directed by Stacy Bosarge..
We rescue on a limited bases. We pull unwanted urgent dogs, mostly Dalmatians from kill shelters in Alabama, Mississippi, Texas, Tennessee, Arkansas and Louisiana.
We also assist with transports, pull assist and temp foster. for other rescues. We currently only have 3 foster homes which limits the number of Dalmatians we can bring in and save. We do not function out of kennels but out of our own homes.
We currently only work with 2-4 dogs at one time. With the lack of donations due to the economy out rescue is mainly ran out of pocket at our own expense. The love we have for these dogs are real and forever..
We are located on a 1400 acres. ranch with small house and a few separate yards, mainly for initial quarantine.. The dogs that come in get plenty of exercise with walks, swimming in the few acre lake near by while we fish. The ones with good recall get to go for a run through the pasture land while I ride horseback for a couple hours every night. They are socialized to various animals, cows, horses, chickens, ducks, geese, rabbits, cats and other dogs. We have no kennels other than the quarantine area and the "bedtime indoor kennels" . Every dog who comes to our rescue is introduced into the house after a quarantine period. Our dogs help alot in the socialization of the new dogs. Once introduced into the house, they are introduced to their sleeping kennel and then join the family. They have dog beds all over the house to lay on. Toys, chew bones and some just content in following you around or take a nap..
Our location with Gilda Turner in Hartselle AL has an air conditioned/heated quarantine area and then socialization in her home before adoption.

Jack made it to the vet Friday afternoon after an 8 hour trip from Etowah TN. He is being treated by out vet and hoping we get to the bottom of why he has been vomiting for the last 3 months.. All his lab work looked great. Kidneys, liver and thyroid good. x-rays where clear, no obstruction, no mega-esophagus and no stones noted in the bladder or kidneys by x-ray. He is a stone former though so he will be put on a good Dalmatian diet. He also had a recent hook worm infestation. So our course of action is a course of antibiotics for lose stool and possible gastritis. We are also doing a trial of prednesone to rule out IBD. So far he is doing well.
RIP Slinky. Slinky was a 12-13y/o dalmatian we rescued from the BJC animal control. Her time with us was very short. Only 2 weeks. She was taken to the vet and found the she was going into renal failure. She was placed on medication to make her comfortable. She would follow you around where ever you went. I went into the hospital at the same time she became acutely ill. Total renal failure and a full blown lower GI bleed my husband had to make the best decision for her and let her go. I was crying that day, being in the hospital I wanted to say goodbye.
My loving husband picked her up and wrapped Slinky in a warm blanket and loaded her into his truck. She laid her head on his lap as he drove the 1 1/2 hours to Jackson to our vet and to me. He came to my room and and assisted me outside in a wheel chair where I got to say my goodbye to Slinky. I wish we could have done more for her. She was in so much pain and we are glad we gave her 2 weeks of love and affection.
