About Our Rescue Group:

Country Dog Rescue, Inc. is a small non-profit organization whose mission is to rescue mixed breed puppies in mortal danger. Each puppy taken in by Country Dog Rescue was scheduled to be euthanized by gassing or lethal injection. Unfortunately, this is not the only danger our puppies have faced in their short lifetimes. The puppies we rescue may by neglected, abused, starved, anemic, tick and flea invested, malnourished, or riddled with intestinal parasites such as roundworms, tapeworms, hookworms, coccidia and giardia. Their immune systems are compromised, leaving them vulnerable to Parvo and bordatella viruses. Many of our puppies come from county kill shelters that cannot provide any vet service other than euthanasia.
Country Dog Rescue will not take in a puppy that is visibly ill, or a puppy that has the potential to be an aggressive adult. We have a mandatory spay / neuter policy, therefore we do not accept puppies from private owners who have allowed their unspayed or unneutered dogs to breed. Country Dog Rescue works with potential adopters who are fully committed to adopting a rescued puppy and providing a forever home. Our adopters are a vital link in the chain of individuals who provide support for puppies in need. Although our adopters are searching for a family companion, they also have the desire to make the world a better place.
Country Dog Rescue has a mandatory a two-week quarantine period. Within 24 hours the puppies we take in are bathed and examined by a vet. They are immediately vaccinated and treated for all intestinal parasites and other illnesses as needed. When our puppies are strong and healthy, they are spayed or neutered. In the unlikely event that a puppy is adopted prior to spay/neuter, strict guidelines and follow-up are in place to ensure compliance.

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.
