About Our Rescue Group:Home at Last Dog Rescue is a small group of volunteer animal lovers whose goal is to help homeless, neglected and abused dogs find caring and responsible homes.
Our volunteers are dedicated individuals who have joined together to form a new rescue group. We are commited to helping dogs in need and to provide them a second chance at a happy life.
Our dogs are not kept in a shelter. We depend on the support of caring and compassionate people to care for our dogs until we can find them permanent, loving homes. We provide vet care and rehabilitation to all of our dogs.
Come Meet our Pets:By appointment only as the dogs are in foster homes.
Our Adoption Process:Adoption fee & home check required.
If you are interested in meeting a dog, please fill out this adoption application then send it back to us at email@example.com. If your home seems the right fit for the dog, a home check will be arranged.
