Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

48 contiguous states and Canada.

About Our Rescue Group:

We are a small group with only a few volunteers. We only have 3 to 5 dogs in our foster care at any given time. We offer assistance to individuals that have dogs/puppies they cannot find a home for and contact us for placement assistance. We also visit the local animal shelter and select dogs/puppies to providing veterinary care, place in foster home and find adopters. We do this due to a deep love for dogs that has been ever present in my life. I am retired and this is my passion. I am also a board member and the local animal shelter. It is my personal goal to help animal overpopulation by doing my part to spread the word to spay/neuter while helping find homes for abandoned/needy dogs.

Come Meet our Pets:

All of our dogs are in foster care. Only after an applicant has been approved to adopt can they visit with the dog, at the foster family's home, or another location.

Our Adoption Process:

Our adoption process includes a comprehensive application which includes veterinary references and three personal references. The personal references are individuals that have pets or have observed the applicants interaction with animals. Only one family member can be provided as a personal reference. Once veterinary references and personal references have been contacted, if we are satisfied with findings, a home visit is scheduled. If a home visit is not feasible due to location, pictures may be submitted via email. We have a list of what we want to see in the pictures. We do not adopt to anyone that does not have a fenced in yard. Our adoption fees vary based on veterinating expenses associated with each dog. They range from $100 to $300.

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.
