Support Dog Adoption and Rescue. Why go to a dog breeder or pet store to buy a dog when you can adopt?
Our Featured Richmond, VA Partner:
GUARD - Giantbreed United Advocates and Rescue Division
Dog adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog and you'll have a friend for life!
Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:
GUARD rescues and adopts out throughout the state of Virginia primarily, but will adopt out to any state we can get a fellow rescue to partner with us for the adoption process. Applicants must be willing to drive to the dog's foster home to meet them before approval or decision - therefore, if we can get a partner to do your home visit, and you're willing to drive to meet the dog, that's pretty much the only restriction!
We are a small foster based rescue group that specializes in Great Danes and Mastiffs, but will also take other giant breeds as space allows. We work closely with other giant breed, breed-specific rescues to help as many dogs in need as possible! The number of foster homes we have is directly related to how many dogs we can help - email us today if you're interested in opening your heart and home to a gentle giant in need!!
Come Meet our Pets:
All of GUARD's dogs are in foster homes, but "like" our page on Facebook (www.facebook.com/GUARDInc) to stay abreast of events, where you can meet some gentle giants and learn about the breeds, submit adoption applications, and more!
Our Adoption Process:
We require an adoption application, vet reference, and home visit. Adopted dogs are under contract.
