About Our Rescue Group:

Hi! I'm Lacey Conner, the "villain" from Vh1's "Rock of Love" and "Charm School". However, I am no villain to the animals! I started my organization (previously called "New Dawn Pet Rescue") a year-and-a-half ago. I am currently working on obtaining my 501c3 status. I rescue dogs (and, occassionally, cats) that are at the local city and county shelter and who are dangerously close to being euthanized at the shelter. Once I remove these animals from the shelter, they come home with me, which is where I foster them. If they are sick or injured (which is often the case), I get them the medical attention they need to heal. (Several dogs that I've pulled from the shelter even needed surgery.) Once the dog is feeling good, I adopt him/her into a loving "forever" home. Then I go back to the animal shelter and start the process all over again. Since I foster in my own home, I can only foster 4 or 5 animals at any given time. But to date, I've rescued and successfully rehomed over 50 animals, most of which otherwise would have been euthanized at the animal shelter.

Our Adoption Process:

If someone is interested in adopting one of our rescued dogs, first we will send the person a brief adoption application via e-mail. Once we receive the completed adoption application back from that person, and if it looks like a good match, then we would bring the dog to that person's house. That way, we can simultaneously do a home check, and have the person and the dog meet each other. If all goes well, then the adoption is complete upon the person signing a contract with us. The contract states that we have the right to check on the well-being of the dog for the rest of that dog's life, and it also states that the person may never give away or sell the dog (if they no longer wish to own the dog, they MUST give the dog back to us.) Our adoption fees range from $150 to $300. (The majority of these fees help pay for vet bills for all the rescued dogs...we specialize in rescuing sick and injured animals from the pound.)

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.
