Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
All dogs are evaluated by experienced members of our rescue before being placed up for adoption to ensure that each pet is matched with the family that is right for him/her.
All dogs receive standard vetting which includes Spay/Neuter, Worming and treatment of Intestinal Parasites, Booster Shot (under 1 yr old), Rabies Vaccination, Flea and Tick Prevention, Dental (if needed), Microchip and Heartworm Test (over 1 yr old). Other medical treatment is given when needed.
All of our dogs are in foster homes, most are located in Evansville, IN but we do have a few else where. We require an approved application before allowing to meet our dogs. Please e-mail RiverCityK9@gmail.com and request an application or go to www.RiverCityK9.org to fill out an online application.
We also help find home for Posey County Animal Control in Mt Vernon, IN. All of the dogs from the shelter receive Booster shot, Bordatella shot and worming. Rabies Vaccination and Spay/Neuter are provided once the pet has found a home and is paid for either by Dirty Paws Rescue or PC Pund Puppies. All adoption fees for Posey County dogs are $80.00 which includes their vetting.
Volenteers are always welcome, please e-mail for a volenteer form if you are interested in helping!!
Our adoption fees vary depending on the dog, breed, size, age and vetting but normally range between $150 and $380, there are rare cases when the adoption fee may be lower or higher. We also provide a senior citizen discount for seniors (55+) interested in adopting a senior dog (10+).
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, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
