Annie’s Orphans is a small rescue that strives to help urgent dogs and cats in shelters across Ohio, Maryland, Virginia, and West Virginia that are about to be euthanized. We do not have a shelter but rather rely on volunteers to foster the dogs and cats until they can find their forever home. For potential adopters to meet the dogs we have adoption events once or twice a month. Watch our website for more information on our upcoming events!

Upcoming events will be posted on our petfinder website!

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, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
