Dog adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
We are a group of dedicated volunteers working to save the lives of wonderful pets who may have been abandoned, dumped or surrendered by the people they loved and trusted. Their only problem is that they don't have a forever home to go to.
All dogs receive initial vetting before arriving in rescue. All of our dogs are seen by our vet to ensure that the dog is healthy and protected. They are given any additional vaccinations needed, are checked for parasites and placed on heart worm treatment.
Adult dogs will be spayed and/or neutered prior to being placed.
We require an application for adoption and we do vet and personal reference checks . Home visits are scheduled once a prospective family has been selected. After the new home has been chosen an adoption contract is also required along with a spay/neuter contact if applicable.
Completing an application or having a home visit does not ensure that you will be eligible to adopt one of Smooch's dogs. We look for the best match for each dog. Please make sure that you have made the decision to adopt a dog before completing an application. We take this very seriously and spend a lot of time on all applicants.
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.
