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.
Once a dog reaches our rescue, our foster home families and Director of Adoptions begin searching for the perfect match - a family who is "just right" and will give the pet a wonderful home. While waiting for their forever home, our dogs receive the best of care while in the 48 hour quarantine and with their foster familes
All dogs have been spayed/neutered, and come fully vaccinated (DHLPP series, rabies, and bordatella), heartworm-tested based on age, and have been dewormed and on heartworm preventative. Each dog is seen by a local veterinarian the day before making their journey, and then see a licensed NH Veterinarian for a State of NH Health Certificate before they are adopted (compliance of NH Department of Agriculture regulations).
We work exclusively with Second Chance Animal Rescue located in Villalba, Puerto Rico to find homes
for stray dogs they have rescued.
They are a no kill, non-profit organization founded to help improve the quality of life of the animals in Puerto Rico dedicated toward improving the basic care and safety of the animals. Their Mission is dedicated to the safety and well being of the animals. They rescue animals that are neglected, abused, abandoned or unwanted by their owners. A typical rescue includes a trip to the veterinarian for a complete health check-up which includes vaccinations, worming, heartworm check and spay or neuter. If there is a more serious condition they go the extra mile.
Please visit their web site WWW.SCAR.PR.ORG to gain a more detailed understanding of their rescue and see the dogs that are currently in their care and will soon
be looking for homes.
Please be sure to complete all sections of the application including Vet phone numbers as a vet review is a critical step in the process.
Stephanie, our Director of Adoptions will review the application and contact you. Our main objective is to find the best suitable home for each pet. We do not operate on a first come, first served basis, we take pride in matching the desires of the families to the needs of each pooch, and therefore phone interviews are an important phase of the process.
Once approved, a time will be set to meet the dogs that have been identified as adoptable to your family. If there is a match that is acceptable to the family and the rescue, the adoption can then take place at our licensed location. Our detailed adoption contract will be signed at that time.
The Adoption Fee is $265.00 and is non-refundable, to be paid in cash or check (no credit cards accepted at this time). The majority of the adoption fee is sent back to Second Chance Animal Rescue in Puerto Rico so they can continue their work to rescue animals and get them the proper medical care so they can be adoped to loving families
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.
