About Our Rescue Group:

We are a very small volunteer group that rescues and rehomes dogs that come from shelters or from owners who can no longer keep them. We are not breed specific but focus primarily on special needs, the bully breeds and mixed breeds.

Come Meet our Pets:

Our rescues are fostered in private homes. We do not hold public adoption events.

Our Adoption Process:

The first step in our adoption process is a phone interview so we can decide if the pet in question is a good match for your family. There will also be an adoption application you will be required to complete, you will need to provide us with vet and personal references. There will be a home visit, an adoption contract and an adoption fee. Our adoption fee is $200-$300 and includes all vaccines, heartworm/lymes testing, spay or neuter and micro chip.

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

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.
