About Our Rescue Group:

H.E.A.L. is a small collaborative of like-minded folks who are dedicated to helping dogs in need. We do not have a facility to visit - our dogs stay in private foster homes until adopted. We do our best to get to know each dog in our care so that we may be able to match them to the home best suited for their needs. All H.E.A.L. dogs will be spayed or neutered and brought up to date on vaccines before adoption. We make no warranties as to the breed, age, health and/or temperament of our dogs. Each adoption is completed in partnership with our adopters.

Our Adoption Process:

ALL interested adopters MUST complete an application; agree to a vet reference check, phone interview and home visit. ALL family members MUST be in attendance for home visits - no exceptions. This helps us get to know everyone in the family so that we can help find the right dog for you.

Applications can be received by emailing All4TheDogs4@gmail.com or by clicking: HEAL App

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.
