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.
We are an all volunteer run organization. We do not have a physical shelter as we are strictly a dog rescue organization. The dogs SDAC coordinates adoptions for have come from southern shelters and, regardless of what state the dogs are posted in, they ARE FOSTERED IN THEIR SOUTHERN FOSTER HOMES UNTIL ADOPTED, unless we are lucky enough to have a northern foster home, then it will say "In New England" after the dog's name. Most of our lucky dogs and lucky puppies are adopted by families living in the northeast!
All of our dogs arrive with a current Health Certificate, are up to date with vaccinations and are transported on a U.S.D.A. approved transport.
These dogs and puppies all deserve a home who will treat them as family members, who will give them a warm and loving INSIDE home, a soft bed to sleep on, plenty of food, toys to play with, family members to take them for walks and rides and, finally, give them the chance to enjoy the rest of their life.
❤YOU❤ are their hope, they need ❤YOU❤ to adopt them to complete their lives.
OCCASIONALLY we have a northern foster home that will foster a puppy.

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.
