About Our Rescue Group:

The Short N Sweet Ranch, altho primarily a horse ranch, has opened its acres to homeless dogs that are looking for that perfect forever home.

We are a member of the Rescue Alliance of Hairless & Other Breeds Which is a group of dedicated rescuers that foster animals from shelters and occasionally for people who need to place their animal into rescue.

Our potential homes are screened & you must be willing to answer questions about your home & life so we can make a perfect match.

All homes must be willing to come out to meet their new dog...I won't ship & hope it works out.

I also require that all adopters have spayed or neutered ALL their current dogs and cats.

If you see a dog here that you like, please email me.

Our Adoption Process:

We will require that you fill out an adoption applications & list references. An adopton contract will also be required at the time a match is made.

Adoption fees to vary slightly, but will be around $200.00 as this is usually the minimum that we have had to invest in each dog to ensure his/her health & to spay, neuter, and vaccinate.

emailing us is the fastest way to get a response. If you are serious about adopting a particular dog, tell us something about yourself in your first email, it will greatly speed up the process!

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.
