About Our Rescue Group:Red Hook Dog Rescue is not a shelter. We started off doing rescue and moved into training. (A Better Dog, Training and Consulting, APDT# 62321, Harriet is a certified trainer www.ccpdt.org) Our main objective is to help keep your dog in your home through training and management.
We tend to specialize in special needs dogs. we started with deaf dogs and now work with blind dogs and also blind deaf dogs. We love seniors too
We know this is not always possible, so we can help you re-home your dog. It would be ideal if the dog could remain in your home until a foster or placement is found, otherwise we require a financial contribution to cover boarding and medical costs.
We get to know our dogs very well and take great pride in matching the right dog with the right family. Fosters, volunteers, sponsors and contributions welcome Helps us help those who are really in need
Come Meet our Pets:Pets can be seen on the internet, and at a kennel in Brooklyn, and sometimes at a kennel in PA. Meetings are by appointment only.
Our Adoption Process:There is an application to fill out. References are required. Once that is is completed, we do a home visit. Fees range from $200.00 -$250.00 (but we do make special considerations) All dogs are fully vaccinated, altered, micro-chipped and heartworm tested.
There is also an adoption contract to sign.We usually respond to inquiries within a couple days. If we do not respond, please write back it is never intentional.
We encourage you to take your time before adopting.
Several meetings, fostering.
If we don't have the right dog for you, we will help you find it
We get quite attached to our adoptees and encourage adopters to keep us posted on their new pet
