About Our Rescue Group:

Puppy Aide rescues dogs, gets them spayed or neutered, shots, happy and healthy and then finds wonderful people to adopt them. Most of the pups are so grateful to be rescued, they are eager to please and starving not only for food but for love and attention. A few dogs are scared and take more time and patience to gain trust and start wagging their tails again!
All the dogs are healthy at time of adoption,have up to date shots, spayed or neutered, socialized, with some training, such as walking on leash,know sit command, partially or completely house trained

Come Meet our Pets:

We bring the dog to your home so you can see the interaction with the dog and your family and other pets and will know if he/she is a perfect match. Overnight visits are encouraged if you are interested.

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.
