About Our Rescue Group:

I love dogs. For as long as I can remember, I've been crazy about dogs. And they seem to be crazy about me too. My husband calls me the Pied Piper of Dogs! When I found out how many were dying in shelters for lack of adoptive homes, I had to do something to help them. I fostered for another rescue for several years, was on the Board of Directors for awhile, and then decided to form my own rescue, so Happy Dog Rescue was born. The name is in honor of my sweet lab, Jessie, who crossed the Rainbow Bridge in April 2005. She was the happiest, sweetest dog that ever lived and I continue to rescue in her honor.

Come Meet our Pets:

Meetings are by appointment only. Our dogs are fostered in a private home environment. Please submit an adoption application to start the process.

Our Adoption Process:

Adoption application (online), vet check, home visit, phone or in-person interview, all family members and pets must meet the new dog prior to an adoption to make sure it's a good match. Happy Dog Rescue and adoptive family must be in agreement about the match. All dogs are fully vetted prior to adoption: rabies, DHLPP, heartworm test if old enough, spay/neuter, plus deworming and/or flea/tick treatment as needed. Adopters are required to take their new dog to their vet for a checkup and fecal test within 2 weeks of adoption. Adoption fee is $250 + tax, total $265.

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.
