About Our Rescue Group:Route 66 Rescue Inc. intends to do anything within our power to change the world for as many dogs as we can. We rescue in memory of those we did not save. OUR MISSION ---The mission of Route 66 Rescue is to locate homeless, needy, unwanted, and abandoned dogs, then search for and place these deserving souls in rescue or a forever home instead of sending them to be euthanized in a shelter. The dogs we have posted are in foster homes or in other holding facilities. If you are interested in learning more about, or adopting, any of the dogs, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. You can call 417-725-0364.
Come Meet our Pets:All of our dogs are foster homes waiting for their forever family to claim them. Contact us at email@example.com for information or to request an application for an appointment to meet any of our dogs.
Our Adoption Process:Dogs are pack animals and do not do well away from the other members of their pack. The adopter is the alpha member of the pack, and the dog or puppy needs as much one-on-one contact with the alpha as possible. For this reason, all Route 66 Rescue Inc. dogs are adopted to inside homes only. Thank you for understanding we want only the best for the dogs we place in your home.
Because dogs are never safe out on their own, Route 66 Rescue Inc. dogs are adopted to families who agree to keep them leashed at all times they are outside, unless they are confined within a secure fence. We do not want our dogs running in packs or dashing in front of traffic. They are safe when they are confined or leashed. All dogs are to be returned to Route 66 Rescue Inc. if the dog ever needs to be re-homed.
A home visit is required. When we visit, we are looking for a pet safe, and a pet friendly home. We want to see if other pets are congenial with the new family member.
The adoption fee is the vetting fee which is usually $150 to $200. This includes parvo/distemper vac., Bordetella, rabies vac., worming, nail trim, spay/neuter, heartworm test, microchip, and flea treatment. Additional vetting may increase the fee.
