Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:
We are based in Terre Haute, IN (Vigo Co.) but do adopt to out-of-state areas. We take in dogs from out-of-area as space allows.
Joey's Home Senior Dog Rescue is a small, independent rescue dedicated to the rescue/placement of senior/special needs dogs. All efforts are made to adopt our seniors to loving, responsible homes if possible, or to effect a transfer to another rescue organization. If our dogs are unable to be placed, they will live out the rest of their retirement in a foster home, receiving any hospice care required. We believe no senior's life should end alone in an animal shelter or pound.
Come Meet our Pets:
We attend as many adoption events as we can, and info for upcoming events can be found on our Petfinder site. Potential adopters with approved applications can schedule a visit at their own home (for the home visit) or at the dog's foster home.
Our Adoption Process:
Dogs are altered, htwm neg, UTD, and microchipped. Potential adopters must fill out an application. Personal and vet references are checked, and a home visit is done. Adoption fee ranges from $75-250 depending on age and health of the animal. If approved, adopter must sign a contract stating, among other things, that the dog will be returned to Joey's Home if they are unable to keep it for any reason.
