About Our Rescue Group:

Sunrise Foundation, LTD. was started back in the 1960's by a man and woman who came from England on the Queen Mary, Sam and Kitty Langdon. It was incorportated and earned it's designation as a 501C-3 charity back in 1972.

Sunrise Foundation’s mission is helping discarded, stray and unwanted dogs that need a second chance at finding a forever home.

We believe that there is a special place out there for all unwanted and abandoned dogs. We run a rescue group that strongly believes in spaying and neutering all dogs. All Sunrise Foundation dogs will be spayed or neutered, micro-chipped, de-wormed, health checked, have a fecal exam and are up to date on all vaccinations that are age appropriate.

Our dogs live in a home environment until they find their “forever home”. Please contact us, we can give you loads of information about the dogs in our care.

We are a small charity and absolutely committed to finding the best possible placement for each of our dogs.

Our Adoption Process:

Our fees vary from $125 to $250. There is an adoption application and an adoption contract.

We try to adopt to families who own their own home, have a fenced yard with a doggie door and someone who is home the majority of the time.

We do check vet and personal references and do our very best to make sure the adoptee and adoptor are perfect matches.

There is a two week money back guarantee on any of our pets. If for any reason the pet is not ideal for your situation, we'll take him/her back and refund your money. IF after two weeks you decide not to keep the pet, you must still surrender the pet to Sunrise Foundation, LTD., however after two weeks there is no refund.

We require the completion of an adoption application and require at least one home visit before placing any dog. Placement of each dog is in our sole and absolute discretion. Because we are a small charity, we may limit the geographical area in which we will place a dog as we require at least one home visit. This geographical limitation will be in our sole and absolute discretion.

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

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.
