Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

Dog World Rescue's mission is to find permanent loving and nurturing homes in the Mid-Atlantic Region for dogs. We support a pro-active spay and neuter program to reduce the number of homeless animals in shelters who thru no fault of their own would have been euthanized. We advocate for the humane treatment of all animals and provide educational resources for rehabiliting dogs. Most of all we encourage and support responsible pet ownership thru community support and education.

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.
