About Our Rescue Group:

True Heart MinPin Rescue is a small all-volunteer organization devoted to giving humane and loving care to abused, abandoned and neglected Miniature Pinschers. We provide veterinary care, screen adoptive homes, transport, and give referral and breed information.

We Needs Volunteers to Help In Our Mission

We are in desperate need of Volunteers, Foster Parents & Sponsors to help. Since True Heart will accept minpins with physical issues as well as senior citizens we need financial sponsors to help them. We are limited in the number of minpins we can take into rescue by the amount of foster homes we have available. You do not have to be a stay-at-home Mom or Dad to foster. As a Foster Parent you provide the love and security that our minpins need. You would also help evaluate the dog and be part of finding its forever home.
If you're unable to foster there are other areas such as transporters, webmaster, public relations, reference checks, and fundraising that you can be involved in. Open your hearts and homes and join us today! To fill out a volunteer application please contact: TrueHeartMinPin@aol.com

Come Meet our Pets:

All of our rescues are fostered in private homes. Because the privacy of our foster parents is very important, we require a pre-adoption application to be completed and approved before visiting our minpins.

Our Adoption Process:

We are very selective when it comes to finding loving forever homes for our rescues. We require all potential adopters to complete a pre-adoption application. Personal and vet references and a home visit will be part of this pre-adoption application. Our Minpins deserve to live the rest of their lives in a safe and loving forever home. Adoption fees are case to case.

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.
