Pets at Our Rescue Group:

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.

About Our Rescue Group:

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.

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.
