Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

We rescue Pekingese in Maryland and Virginia and adopt to those areas. We also adopt to some areas of North Caroline.

About Our Rescue Group:

We are all volunteers who love Pekingese. Our dogs are all fostered in homes, given any vet care they need. We want to make sure any Peke we place goes to a home that fits both the dog and the family. We also are there to help answer questions about Pekingese, their care, their health issues.

Come Meet our Pets:

We do not have adoption events. Applications must first be made, vet and home checks done before any pet can be met or placed.

Our Adoption Process:

We require an application to be submitted, vet check and home checks are required. We do not adopt to first time adopters and prefer those with Pekingese or small dog experience. Normally, we do not adopt to people with children under 8 in the home, but exceptions are made if the child is good with dogs. Our adoption fees range from $200 to $350, depending on age and health of the Pekingese.

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

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.
