About Our Rescue Group:

Small Dog Rescue of Minnesota (SDR) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit all-volunteer no-kill group committed to the rescue, rehabilitation, and placement of dogs 20 pounds and under.

Dogs are fostered in volunteers' homes so they can be loved like a family member until they are placed in a suitable adoptive home, determined by a review of a written application, a criminal background check, several reference consultations, and a home visit.

We hold adoption events a few times a month in different locations throughout Minnesota. You can see where we'll be by visiting our Events Page on our website at http://www.smalldogsminnesota.org/events.cfm

Our Adoption Process:

1. Complete an adoption application at: http://www.smalldogsminnesota.org/adoptionConfirm.cfm

2. Allow up to 10 days for SDR to process your adoption application. It will be reviewed by an SDR representative and references will be checked.

3. If the application is aproved, a home visit will be conducted to ensure a good match with the applicant & the dog.

4. If SDR determines a good match has been made, an adoption contract between the adopter and SDR will be completed. An adoption fee + applicable MN state sales tax are due at the time the contract is signed.

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.
