Maryland, Virginia, DC, Pennsylvania, and surrounding states.

About Our Rescue Group:

We are a small K-9 rescue that focuses on pregnant moms and litters of puppies. Most of our dogs come from rural areas of Kentucky, WV or Ohio. Often a high kill shelter or the rescue group in that area will reach out to our organization as the pups last chance.

At this time, we do not have a public facility. All of our pets are fostered in comfortable homes with volunteer foster families.

If you have found a pup you would like to adopt, we encourage you to fill out the on-line application. After reviewing the applications that have come in for a particular dog, we begin the process of finding the best home for the rescue dog.

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.
