About Our Rescue Group:

shaggy dog rescue is a 501 (3) (c) non profit organization that rescues shaggy dogs of all shapes, sizes and breeds,mainly mixed mutts from the local shelters, most of the dogs we take in need vet care, spay,neuter.heartworm treatment,micro-chipping, vaccinations and more, once the vet feels that the dog is in good health we then work on socializing them in with other dogs , so that we can guage their personalities and know their traits, that way we can work on finding the perfect new home for them
many of the dogs undergo training at rover oaks doggie day care and some actually go into their day care program.

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.
