About Our Rescue Group:

We are a 501c3 not for profit organization dedicated to bringing chained and penned dogs into the home and family. Many times an owner will simply ask us to take the dog and find it an inside home. So many of these poor dogs have never been to a vet and these expenses add up quite quickly. We always test for heartworm/parasites and treat if they test positive, we always spay/neuter before adoption and all are up to date on vaccines.
We do accept donations and are always looking for good homes for our rescued friends. These dogs deserve a life free from chaining and penning and are so appreciative af any and all affection and Love they recieve.

We require a signed contract.
We require an adoption fee, varying depending on the medical expenses required to ensure good health of the dog.
These dogs will never be chained or penned again, this is part of our contract agreement.

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.
