About Our Rescue Group:

Chocolate Chip Dalmatian Assistance League (CCDAL) is a non-profit, 501c3 organization dedicated to helping unwanted, abandoned, abused, and/or neglected Dalmatians find loving, permanent homes. We evaluate the temperament of the dogs, foster the selected Dalmatians in our homes, bring them up to date on vet care, spay or neuter, and provide socialization.

We generally do not take in owner surrenders for foster, but will assist the owners in finding a new home by posting their Dalmatian on our web site provided they will continue to physically and financially support their dog until an appropriate, permanent home is located.


Rescuing pure-bred Dalmatians and Dalmatian mixes of good temperament from local shelters and finding appropriate permanent homes for them,

Educating the public about the Dalmatian breed,

Assisting owners with all aspects of raising a Dalmatian,

Promoting responsible pet ownership,

Advocating spay/neuter as a means of decreasing pet over-population, and

Cooperating with other rescue groups and assisting them whenever possible.

Our Adoption Process:

As the first step, an adoption application (available at is required. The application is reviewed by a committee and a vet check is done. The applicant is then invited to the foster home to meet the dog. Once everyone agrees that the dog and new family are a good match, a home visit is done before a contract is completed. Our adoption fee is $250.00. The process can take up to two weeks depending on volunteers' schedules.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
