Our History

In 2013, three women who were fostering animals through the same rescue organization decided to hold an impromptu meeting over drinks to discuss concerns they had about the organization and potential solutions. These women were very like-minded and ultimately decided that they would start their own rescue organization and run it the best way they knew how, based on their collective, previous experiences. Enter, One Love Animal Rescue Group. In their first year of operation, 63 adoptions were completed. 

In 2018, One Love Animal Rescue Group celebrated it’s 5-year anniversary by quadrupling the number of adoptions completed in the calendar year compared to their first year of operation; a sign of impressive growth! At any given time, One Love Animal Rescue Group has an average of 60 animals in our care, which is more than many shelters! One Love’s success can be attributed to our amazing village of fosters, volunteers, sponsors, and supporters. None of this would be possible without that village, and the animals thank you with every wag of their tail.


Dawn Hullings


Dawn has fostered countless animals to their forever homes since she started fostering in 2011. A dream of hers came true when One Love Animal Rescue Group invited her to be a member of the rescue’s Board of Directors. Dawn is the Director of a busy device clinic in Moorestown, NJ and is pursuing her Master’s degree in between dog meets, events, fostering, fundraising… well, you get the idea! When it comes to saving the lives of animals in need, busy is good! She may be a registered nurse by day, but after hours and on the weekend, she is involved in rescue at all levels. Dawn’s husband, two grown daughters and four family dogs are all  a big part of rescue. Dawn’s motto is ,“One dog at a time,” and we believe that most of us can do that much.
