About Our Rescue Group:

Knine Rescue is a small non-profit 501(c)3 organization, dedicated to animal care and protection. We assist shelters and other rescues (both in our area and out of our area alike), and take on word of mouth tasks. Our goal is to promote responsible animal ownership and to assume those responsibilities when others are unwilling or unable to do so. We are a virtual facility of volunteers.

Come Meet our Pets:

Once a month at the Germantown, MD Petco,

Our Adoption Process:

Our adoption program includes an application form, home visit and contract. All persons interested in adopting a pet from us must read and complete the forms. Forms found at the end of our website. A non-refundable donation (we average $180 - $350 a pet, usually at least $350 for puppies including credit for sterilization) is required at the time of adoption to enable us to continue our efforts in helping other animals.We reserve the right to refuse the adoption of an animal to a home that does not meet these or other standards (be sure to read a copy of our
"Standards for Adoption" on our website). This includes the right to inspect homes and remove the animal if it is not receiving proper care or has been mistreated.

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, 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.
