About Our Rescue Group:

Least of These Dog Rescue (Matthew 25:40,45) is a private small dog rescue that began by pulling for reputable rescues from our county pound (now kennel). Then we began transports/fostering for ig's, yorkies, greyhounds and puppymill dogs. Which we desire and will continue to do. Home visits were added on to our responsibilities. We believe that the term designer dogs is a fad and trendy. We prefer to say "a mixture of breeds is for a lifetime". We are dedicated to retraining/cleaning up strays and owner turn-ins, a few at a time. We believe dogs deserve respect and the best home for life. We focus on dogs that are left over that no one apparently wants because of looks/health/age. "There's a nice dog in there somewhere" we say and we work to find and bring out that beautiful spirit.
LOTDR is not a 501 yet , but we are non profit, all donations made to the rescue and adoption fees go directly back to the dogs for their vet/food/supplies.
We believe that God intends for people to treat dogs humanely with compassion, kindness love and care. We could use foster homes from time to time so if you are interested in that please email us. Since we don't claim to know all the history of a dog in our care and even tho our dogs are or blossom into greyt pets, we very rarely say that a dog is great with all children. Therefore, we suggest and prefer meeting the dog with your family with preschool age children or adopting only to families with children over 6 yrs of age. Donations are always welcomed for vet care. Our adoptions are a process - We take applications, do home checks/vet and personal vet checks before the final acceptance .. email us for an appy. Our email has changed note ----

Come Meet our Pets:

We offer (after acceptance of application) for an applicant to visit with the dog that is up for adoption at the foster home and with your dogs (should you have any) to see if they are an appropriate match.

Our Adoption Process:

If you wish to submit an application, email us and we will email you the form. OUR EMAIL HAS CHANGED ---
The amount of adoption fee/donations are determined by breed/age/health of dog. We require a signed contract and an adoption agreement. Our adoptions are a process - We take applications first, then do home visits/references and vet checks before the final acceptance or denial. We will not consider shipping. At times a transport can be done, but please don't count on it, it would be best if you would make arrangements to pick up the dog at the foster home. I like to think that the dogs have a say in where they go. This way they can agree or disagree to go with you. Some dogs may feel abandoned by a person who has devoted a lot of time socializing/training a dog and then being taken to a new home and "left". It all depends on the dog, we want to start its new forever life on a good note with no surprises..

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.
