Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

Franklin County. We do not ship our dogs. Perspective adopters must come to Central Ohio to meet and pick-up their dog in person.

About Our Rescue Group:

We are an all volunteer small rescue that saves dogs and puppies from puppy mills and kill shelters. CODRL will also help find homes for dogs for families that can no longer keep them.

We do not have a shelter. Each dog is placed in a foster home where they are loved, socialized and treated as part of the family until we find them a forever home.

Many of our rescues need special care. We provide the love, training, and attention needed to get them ready for their forever home.

A lot goes in to saving a dog. We never know what we may encounter with each personality or health for each dog. We want to give them all a chance at a loving home. Many times, our adoption fees don't even cover the cost of that dog's needed vet care and foster care. So when we have a dog that doesn't take up all the funds for his adoption fee, the balance goes to help the other needy dogs with their extended health care needs.

Our Adoption Process:

We put the welfare of our rescues before anything else and therefore have a process we follow to be sure the dog gets his perfect home.
-You must be 22 years of age.
-All pets in the adopting household must be spay/neutered, current on vaccinations, and on monthly heartworm preventative.
-Online application must be completed on our website.
-Adoption fees range from $100-$400 depending on the dog/puppy.

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.
