Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

We are an animal welfare organization where we rescue dogs from Puerto Rico. Puerto Rico has over 250,000 stray dogs born into homlessness, abandoned and or abused. The dogs can be found on the streets, beaches, parks, all over. It is a very sad situation. There are only 5 shelters in all of Puerto Rico and the kill rate is 99%. A dog is lucky to survive 48 hours if they are turned into a shelter in Puerto Rico. We temperment test the dogs, vaccinate them, test them for parvo, heartworm and parasites and spay/neuter them before they leave Puerto Rico for the states.

About Our Rescue Group:

We are a new non profit animal welfare organization. However, our founder, Chrissy Beckles has been rescuing dogs from Puerto Rico for the last 6 years and I have been rescuing dogs from Puerto Rico for the last three years. We rescue dogs from Puerto Rico because there are over 250,000 strays and animal cruelty laws are not enforced and there is significant animal cruelty in Puerto Rico. Our goal is to help change the face of Puerto Rico and make it a place where dogs and people can peacefully live together and where there are no longer 250,000 strays. This will be accomplished by rescuing the adoptable pups from puerto Rico and caring for the ones that are not adoptable in Puerto Rico. Just as important is providing education on the importance od spay/neuter and our organization spaying/neutering dogs that will remain in Puerto Rico.

Come Meet our Pets:

Our dogs fly from Puerto Rico to the states to their foster homes. We will provide city, town, state where each of the dogs are being fostered and I will coordinate meeting the dogs.

Our Adoption Process:

We require all potential adopters to complete our adoption application. We review the application, do full reference checks and home visits. Once we complete this process and the application is approved we then set up a date and time for the family to meet the dog. If we then feel it is a good fit then the potential adopters will need to complete and sign our adoption contract.
The adoption fee for puppies too young to be spayed/neutered is $350. For dogs spayed/neutered the adoption fee is $400.

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.
