Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

We are a small rescue group, serving the New York, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Vermont areas. We rescue dogs from southern shelters, and bring them up north where we find good homes for them. They are spayed and vetted before they come to your home. We are looking for kind, responsible foster homes, as well.

Many dogs in the south are destroyed regardless of age, temperment or health. Many healthy young puppies are destroyed! The dogs often run free, and most are not spayed or neutered, so there is an overpopulation of them. They don't have a lot of time once they are in a shelter. Won't you consider one of these southern ladies or gentlemen??

About Our Rescue Group:

We are a small New York rescue group, set up to help bring dogs from the south up north to find new, permanent homes. We are totally volunteer, and take great joy in finding great dogs new homes.

We are currently applying for our 501-c status, and appreciate any donations that you may want to make. Your donation will be used to save dogs from high kill shelters, transport them north, pay for quarantine for puppies who need to be in a kennel for 2 weeks before transport, and to a fund for spaying and neutering their dogs, because without a spay/neuter program, the problem of dog overpopulation will never end in the south. Your donation will be greatly appreciated, and wisely used, I give you my promise. It is all for the dogs. Thank you,

Come Meet our Pets:

Local adoption events in Warrensburg, New York, or you can come visit our pets at our rescue area.

Our Adoption Process:

Adoption fee of $200 for puppies under a year old, $200 for older dogs or obvious mixes, which includes spay/neuter, shots, shelter fee and transport to the north. Older dogs who need a spay/neuter will be $150 and adopted out with a spay/neuter contract.

All adopters must fill out the application and give a vet reference. If you do not currently have a vet, please contact a vet in your area, and explain that you would like to use that vet as reference for future treatment of your new friend. Additionally, we ask for a Cradle to Grave contract, in which you agree to return the dog to us any time in his/her life if you cannot keep him/her. Adopters must agree to regular vet care for the dogs, including heartworm preventive meds, and obedience training.

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.
