Dog adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
Please note that we also coordinate Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Club Rescue (Northeast Region), the rescue group for this breed in the Northeast. For more information on Cavalier Rescue, please see our homepage at http://www.cavaliers-ne.petfinder.com
Adoption requirements vary because each dog has individual needs that we seek to meet (i.e. some dogs love other dogs, some don't; some need a fence, some don't; some are fine left alone during the day, others are not; and so on). Our goal is to match good dogs up with individuals and families who can provide them with a loving home and a wonderful life.
Please note that we rarely adopt small dogs to families with very young children as young children often view small pets as toys and can be overly rough, resulting in either an excessively shy dog or one who is snappy.
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.
