Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

We adopt nationwide, however we do not transport our dogs. Potential adopters visit the rescue to meet the dogs prior to adoption.

About Our Rescue Group:

Our mission is to provide temporary care and shelter for stray, abandoned and relinquished Dalmatians and to place as many as possible into responsible and caring homes.

Our team also works to create awareness and support for the humane treatment of all animals and to end animal overpopulation through education and the promotion of spaying and neutering.

Over the past few years and thanks to people like you, we have been able to save hundreds of dogs. Please help us save even more by volunteering your time or become a foster home or open you heart to a new addition to your family by adopting.

If you are interested in adopting one of our dogs, visit our website and fill out an online application. You can also find us on Petfinder.

Everyone needs their own spot!

Come Meet our Pets:

Adoptions are by appointment only. Occasionally we do adoption events at Petco in Roanoke, VA.

Our Adoption Process:

Potential adopters are required to fill out an online application. Applicants are contacted by one of our adoption coordinators. We do a vet check on applicants current pets prior to the actual applicant interview. If approved, the applicant is invited to come to the rescue to meet the dogs to find the perfect fit for their family. Adoption fees vary, depending upon the dog (purebred dalmatian, dalmatian mix, adult or 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.
