We are a group of foster homes in and around the Omaha, Nebraska/ Council Bluffs, Iowa area. We adopt dogs all over the country.
We are not a shelter but a small group foster homes. We rescue dogs from high kill shelters and puppymills. We also take owner surrenders. All of our dogs are spayed and neutered and have current vaccinations before being adopted. We are a "network" of volunteer rescuers in the Midwest. Many of us have known one another for years from helping with various local rescue groups, shelters, and national breed rescue groups. All of us have had the experience of coming across a dog that needed help that didnĺt have a rescue group that could take them into their program. We were finding that regardless of breed or whether a dog is "purebred", there are many of us out there who wanted to help these dogs and need a place to list them. Therefore, we decided to start Midwest Dog Rescue Network to help rescuers help dogs that would otherwise "fall through the cracks". We are a collection of rescuers and some good-hearted individuals, who are just trying to help as many good dogs find homes as possible.
Our Adoption Process:
The first step in our adoption process is filling out and an adoption questionnaire that helps up match the right dog with the right person. Then our group reviews the questionnaires, then one of our members contacts the person that seems to fit to talk more and meet the dog and family. We do have adoption fees that help cover the cost of spay and neutered and vaccinations. Our fees also go into a general fund that helps us buy out dogs from puppymills.
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, adopting
a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats
for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder?
When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs
and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of
dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed
is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten
breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes.
So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat
or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt
a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane
society or pet rescue group.
