About Our Rescue Group:

The Extra Mile Dog Rescue is a rescue dedicated to taking dogs that are not thriving in shelters, placing them in foster homes where they receive intensive training and behavior modification, and adopting them to loving homes. We do this to reduce the number of good but poorly mannered dogs being euthanized in Virginia.

Our Adoption Process:

In order to adopt you must first fill out the adoption application. This is followed by a home visit. Once approved the adoptor must sign an adoption contract. The adoption fee for all dogs is $125.

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.
