About Our Rescue Group:

We are a Giant Schnauzer rescue, although we do help with others when asked specifically to do so - miniature schnauzers, schnoodles, Dobermans, etc., and have helped other folks get involved in forming a 501(c)(3) organization of their own. We take in rescues from shelters (Giants do not do well in a shelter environment - they can become protective of their kennel, and they are a "velcro" dog - need to be with their humans) and other situations (i.e., divorce when no one wants to keep the Giant), etc., vet check, rehabilitate where necessary, and then place in a loving home with someone willing to put in the time and effort on a pet after doing a home visit. A Giant is NOT a dog that can be left in the back yard by itself. They need human companionship. All of our members are volunteers, and we do it stricly for the love of the breed.

Come Meet our Pets:

Currently our pets can be found on If you'd like to meet them, they need to contact Deer Creek Animal Hospital where many of our pets are being fostered. They get plenty of care and attention, as well as playtime!!!

Our Adoption Process:

We require a home visit. Our adoption fee is based on age, and we do have an adoption contract that must be signed prior to adopting. Our adoption contract is for the safety of our rescues.

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.
