Pets at Our Rescue Group:
Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:
Frederick Maryland and surrounding areas. We also do adoptions out of the area if we feel that the home is a good match for one of our pets.
MerryLea Rescue is a small rescue taking only Cockers who "fall through the cracks" - having the misfortune of needing rescue when the two "biggie" cocker groups in the area are full. WE ALSO TAKE IN OTHER BREEDS AND CATS ON OCCASSION - WHEN THEY ARE IN DIRE NEED. We constantly need help - volunteers and donations - as we never want to have to say "no" to a dog with no chance. We are small - so we need help. We welcome all who wish to contribute - time, talent or treasure. We are truly a last chance rescue and our dogs were all in danger of losing their lives. They are not the bottom of the barrel - they are wonderful dogs who happened to be in the wrong place at a very wrong time. Once rescued - our dogs are safe - they are no longer in danger - however unless we find good adoptive homes we too, can fill up and be unavailable for the unfortunates in shelters later. So we need caring people to adopt our wonderful little "wiggle-butts" to make room for more. We also are in constant need of foster homes to care for our dogs while they await their "fur-ever" home. This is a wonderful way to have the joy of a dog without a long-term committment.
Come Meet our Pets:
We usually arrange private meetings with our dogs and potential adopters. We occassionaly do adoption events at the Frederick MD Rt. 40 SuperPetz.
Our Adoption Process:
First step is an adoption application - then the ap is checked and a home visit done - please be patient - we are all volunteers with jobs and families to care for also. The final step is the adoption and you will need to sign an adoption agreement. You will also agree that the dog will NEVER be in danger again and is to be returned to rescue if circumstances EVER change and you cannot keep the dog.
For an application contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
