Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

We are a small rescue group located in central Connecticut. Serving all of Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts and New York. We are a network of foster homes and DO NOT have a facility. We strive to find the best possible homes for the puppies we rescue from high kill shelters in Georgia and surrounding southern states.

About Our Rescue Group:

We started doing volunteer work back in 2004 working for several rescue groups during that time. This year we decided to open our own rescue and that's how we ended up here. We pull from high kill shelters in the south with the help from volunteers down there. We just want to help give these pups a shot at a good home and great life. It is now our mission to try and place them in the best possible environment.
We are a group of volunteers and are always looking for help and donations. Please contact us if you are interested in be coming a foster home. Foster homes help greatly and allow us to help begin socializing these pups and correcting any damage done to them. We are a small rescue and believe in quality over quantity...meaning we only pull 4-6 puppies a month to assure that all our puppies are in the best possible health and are well socialized. We are so grateful to all our forever families who saved a life...without your kindness and compassion we couldn't do what we do to try and save these poor little souls that someone threw away.

Come Meet our Pets:

November 17th 2012 we will be holding an adoption event at Pack Tracks in Southington Ct located on West Street from 12:30 to 2:30. We will have our newest litter of puppies there. Please come down and meet them.

We will be more than happy to meet our potential adopters by appointment only.

We will post if there is an upcoming events or we can email potential adopters directly if they want us to do so. We ask that any potential adopter come and meet the puppy 1st and see if it's a good fit.

Our Adoption Process:

Our adoption process is simple and easy...if you see a puppy that your interested in send us an email. We also like to do a home visit with the potential adopter. If everyone agrees it's a good fit for the puppy...contracts are signed and our puppies find their forever homes. Adoption fees will vary from dog to dog depending on medical treatments and transportation costs, (typical fee is $250). All puppies come with their 1st shots (some with their 2nd), deworming, and flea and tick treament.
We DO NOT profit from these fees and all money is put directly back into rescuing and transporting more pups from high kill shelters down south.

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

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.
