About Our Rescue Group:

Southern Star MinPin Rescue, Inc. (SSMPR) is dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and re-homing of Miniature Pinschers (minpins) of all ages. Upon entering our care, each minpin is evaluated for general health and updated on vaccinations. After the Miniature Pinscher is restored to good physical and emotional health and spayed or neutered the search begins for the best and most appropriate home.

Careful consideration is taken to ensure that the new home meets the specific needs of the individual minpin by providing a loving and safe haven for this new family member.

Prospective owners and family members are carefully screened and the home premises inspected before the minpin is introduced into the new environment. At a future date, a follow-up visit is made by SSMPR, to ensure that all is going well.

SSMPR, remains available as a supportive resource to the family for the life of the minpin. All new owners of a minpin from SSMPR, are required to sign a contract agreeing to maintain the best possible health of the minpin and further stating that,in the event circumstances change and the minpin can no longer remain in their home, it must be returned to SSMPR and cannot be sold, given away or taken to a shelter for replacement.

If you are interested in adopting a Miniature Pinscher please complete an Adoption Application and submit it online and you will be contacted by a representative.

Southern Star MinPin Rescue, Inc. is devoted solely to rescue and neither endorses nor promotes any individual or organization not dedicated to rescue according to these guidelines.

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.
