Dog adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
Dogs Deserve Life is a no-kill, foster home-based dog rescue organization that provides nurturing settings for homeless dogs while we seek the ideal permanent home for each dog. Most of the dogs we rescue come from high-kill shelters and may have never experienced a loving home environment. Our rescue dogs receive the very best care, medical care, love, socialization, and exercise prior to be paired with their forever family. Dogs Deserve Life dogs are fully vetted prior to adoption, including spay/neuter, microchip, heartworm test (if 6 months or older), vaccinations for rabies, distemper, parvo, and bordetella, and deworming, and are placed on flea/tick and heartworm prevention medicine. Dogs Deserve Life rescue dogs are available for view via www.petfinder.com and www.adoptapet.com. We interview potential adopters extensively, check personal and vet references, do home checks for all adoptions, personally deliver the dogs to their new homes, and keep in touch with our adopters.
The name of our organization expresses our philosophy about animals -- They deserve the very best care and respect human beings are capable of providing. Our web site is currently under construction and will be up in the near future so please check back!
Our adoption fees vary. Adoption fees for each dog are generally included in their online bio. Otherwise, please inquire by calling 847 842 9300 or emailing email@example.com and referencing the particular dog(s) in which you are interested.
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.
