Pets at Our Rescue Group:
Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:Most of our dogs and puppies are adopted by families living in MD, PA, NJ, NY, CT, MA & ME!
About Our Rescue Group:Loyal Heart Puppy Adoptions, a New England based adoption coordinating organization works to facilitate the re-homing of puppies and dogs in need, all of them come from the efforts of our affiliate Alabama, Tennessee, Arkansas and Mississippi rescue groups and their wonderful dedicated foster homes who rescue and rehabilitate and take care of these babies for so long before coming northeast to their furever homes.
The majority of dogs and puppies in the south will be killed within 7 days of being dropped off at a shelter IF they are thought to be strays, IF an owner drops them off they could be on their way to the gas chamber as the owner walks to their car. IF we have room in a southern foster home we can pull many of them and place them into foster care for, at least, 5 weeks, with a private foster family until they are fully vetted. When there is a litter of puppies in need of rescue and their Mom is available we ALWAYS take her in, too, once her puppies are weaned she is spayed. Then they head north to new furever homes! There are a lot of IFs in rescue.....
IF a dog or puppy is marked as "New England" or "Maine" it simply means they are already here or will come into northern foster care IF they are NOT adopted first, if they are adopted first they will arrive from AL, TN, AR or MS directly to their new family, once in their new home they must stay within the family's home and yard until they are one week out from their fourth DHLPP vaccine!
Once a dog is committed to, they go on the next available transport. If they remain in the AL, TN, AR or MS foster home they are taking up a space where another dog or puppy could be pulled from the shelter, or kept from going into a shelter, and come into rescue. Stray dogs and puppies have a 7 day "hold" in the shelter (waiting for someone to come in and claim them) before they are killed / euthanized, so an adopted dog or puppy remaining in a foster home could mean the death of another dog or puppy.
Come Meet our Pets:There are NO dogs being fostered in New Gloucester, ME.
We do not have one physical location. Our dogs and puppies are kept in private foster homes in Alabama, in Tennessee, in Arkansas and in Mississippi for 3-6 weeks or longer, as part of a family, to help prepare them for transition into their northern forever homes and also to have enough time to have them receive all the necessary vetting we require before placing them with an adoptive family, for their health and safety.
You are very welcome to speak with the the foster family about the dog/puppy you are interested in after we receive your Application!
