Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

We adopt pets to families and individuals in Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania and surrounding areas.

About Our Rescue Group:

Day Before The Rainbow is a group of dedicated animal lovers who volunteer their time to help the otherwise helpless animals in our area. We rescue animals which are about to be euthanized in high-kill shelters. We are a strictly foster based rescue and all animals are kept in private foster homes until adopted. Please contact us today to meet any one of our adoptable animals!

Our Adoption Process:

We require an application to be filled out. After the application is submitted, we will review it and check references. After the adopter is approved, we will email you back and set up a time for you to meet your new family member. Fees vary depending on the animal, and an adoption contract must be signed at time of adoption.

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.
