Security is very important to us.
Recently, some of our groups received a bogus letter from one of the adoption sites, asking them for their account information on that site. This is what is called a “phishing” attack.
Phishing is when someone poses as a legitimate organization and attempts to get sensitive information such as, in this instance, a password.
We will never ask you for your account password. We may ask for your account number, but never for your password.
If you receive an email that appears to be from RescueGroups.org and asks you for your account, it is not from us, so do not respond, and contact our support team to let us know.
Our organizations carry sensitive information such as a donor’s contact information and address. We have security measures installed that keep your information private and accessible only by your volunteers.
