About Our Rescue Group:

NORTH MOUNTAIN SMALL DOG RESCUE is a small breed rescue geared toward but not limited to Pomeranians. Our objective is to rescue and place small breed dogs in need. Located in the Eastern Panhandle of WV, we are very accessible to the Rte 81 corridor as well as Washington DC and Baltimore.. Working independently, there is no building, fostering in private homes. We rescue from many different shelters--and frequently bring animals into our group who might otherwise lose their lives. So we might have anything--from a puppy to a senior who is considered "unadoptable" by a shelter. We will also often have purebreds or close mixes.

Our Adoption Process:

Adopting a Friend
Adopting a friend NORTH MOUNTAIN SMALL DOG RESCUE If interested in adopting one of fur babies, contact us via phone or email. It is necessary to complete an adoption application. Please note: We no longer adopt outside driving distance of our primary foster home in Martinsburg, WV. Our dogs must be indoor dogs and must never be tied out lead or run. We do not recommend invisible fence for our small dogs as it does not protect them from intruders.(both human and four legged) Fees normally cover all vaccines, rabies shot and tag, worming, HW check, and spay/neuter if the dog is an adult. Puppies: $200.00- $450.00. This includes a refundable $50.00 spay neuter fee which is returned to you when we receive a certificate from your vet saying the dog has been altered. This includes worming, shots, rabies certificate, and health records. If the puppy is already spayed or neutered the fee would be $50.00 less. Adult dogs: $200--$450.00 depending on mix or purebred. This estimated veterinary fee includes spay or neuter of the dog, vaccines current, rabies certificate, health exam, bath, flea preventative, worming if needed, and may include grooming. Dogs that come to us from southern shelters will have a heartworm test. On occasion, we will have a very special furbaby whose adoption fee may be higher do to the demand for that breed. Those funds are used to fund vetting for our unadoptable seniors and special needs babies.. Dogs 10 yrs and older: $100--225. We offer a discount for an older dog, since They may need a bit of extra care from you. An old dog is a special kind of joy. Like well broken in shoes they are a good fit because they are usually well behaved, already trained, and will often give years of love and devotion if you give them a yearly dental cleaning, a joint healthy diet, and a warm sweater for winter outings.

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.
