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.
We are open:
Wednesdays - Sundays
12 pm - 7 pm
No paperwork is required prior to meeting the dog(s).
Unless the dog is located in a foster home, which is indicated in his/her bio, you are more than welcome to come visit with the dog during our adoption hours. We are open Wed-Sun, 12-7, at 501 E Scenery Ln, Ste 100 in Meridian, ID.
Before finalizing an adoption, we ask that all family members living in the household, including any other dogs, participate in a supervised meet-and-greet at our location. We love getting the opportunity to talk with families and introduce them to the amazing dogs at our Rescue. This interaction gives us all a chance to get to know the dogs better and to discuss any potential challenges or concerns. We provide post-adoption support for life, so the on-site meet-and-greet is the first step to a great relationship.
We no longer breed label, as we don't DNA test and are instead focusing on the individual dogs and their personalities. We'd be happy to discuss this decision with you at the Rescue.
The adoption fee for each dog is set at $300 and is used to cover our expenses. The adoption fee for bonded pairs is $450, and we do offer 10% discounts for seniors, military/former military, and first responders. Because we receive no funding and have no vet clinic on-site, our standard adoption fee is set to recoup the money we've spent caring for your dog before you take him/her home.
All dogs are examined, spayed or neutered, fully vaccinated, and microchipped (with lifetime enrollment). We provide additional medical care as needed.
Once an MCR dog, always an MCR dog. We will support you and your dog for the rest of his or her life. We've gathered resources and references, so there are plenty of people to help you if you have any questions or concerns after bringing your new family member home.
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.
