About Our Rescue Group:

Dogs Deserve Life is an all-breed, non-profit, no-kill dog rescue organization. We exist to spare the innocent lives of homeless dogs and place them with loving families so they can live the lives they deserve. Nearly all of the dogs we rescue are taken off of euthanasia lists at high-kill shelters, often literally hours before their senseless death. The dogs are then transported to us by volunteers and placed in loving foster home care while being prepared for adoption. We provide our rescue dogs with all the care, time, exercise, love, and attention they need and deserve in order to become their whole selves and adoptable. We fully vet all of our rescue dogs prior to or upon adoption, including spay/neuter, microchip, heartworm test, vaccinations for rabies, distemper, parvo, and bordetella, and deworming. Any medical needs each dog has are also addressed prior to adoption. By the time our rescue dogs leave our care, they are healthy in mind, body, and spirit, ready to be adopted and loved by their new families, and ready to go right into basic obedience training for the benefit of both the adoptive families and the dogs.

Our Adoption Process:

We ask all prospective adopters to complete and return our adoption application. Upon receipt, we will call you to discuss your application and, if it seems like a good fit, we arrange for your family to come to our facility to meet your dog or dogs of interest.. If, at that point, it indeed is a good fit, the adoption process can be completed.

Our adoption fees range. Please see our individual dog profiles to determine our adoption fee for a particular dog.

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.
