About Our Rescue Group:

White Angels Hope is dedicated to the rescue and homing of dogs of double merle breeding also known as lethal white Australian Shepherds and Border Collies. These dogs are born visually and hearing impaired as a result of breeding done to achieve a certain look. A small percentage of the litter is born lethal white so other puppies can have blue eyes and merle coats.
Merle is a term used for the mottled coloring seen in certain breeds. Double merle is when two dogs are bred to get this look but because of genetics, they should not be mated. Most of the lethal white puppies are drowned or shot at birth or left on the side of a road to die. FOSTERS NEEDED White Angels Hope is always in need of caring foster homes. If you are not ready to adopt perhaps you can help save a dog by becoming a foster home. These dogs do not do well in kennel situations. Without enough foster homes we often have to pass on saving dogs in high kill shelters.

Our Adoption Process:

Because of the special needs of these dogs we take great care in who they are placed with. They have had a difficult enough start in life and we want them in a home where they will be loved and respected. We ask all adopters and fosters to learn about these dogs and to learn sign and touch signals to be able to communicate with them properly. A special type of home is needed for these beautiful dogs. They are not for everyone even though you might be attracted to their beauty. Our application process includes checking your vet and personal references in addition to a home visit. White Angels Hope will only adopt within the NY Tri State area. There are a few exceptions to this rule. If you are in your own home we require a TOTALLY fenced in back yard. This includes fencing that may go underground for a foot at least.

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.
