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.
The dogs that PetResQ Ohio takes in are very special dogs. These dogs have been deemed unadoptable for a variety of reasons and are set to be euthanized either by the shelters of which they reside or by their prior owners. When we take in a dog, they become part of our family, our pack, where they will be cared for and loved until they find a home where they can live happily ever after.
All of our dogs are in our home where we can observe and evaluate their behaviors with people, other dogs and cats. We try to know everything we can about the dogs so that we can match them up with a good solid potential adopter who will know in advance the lifestyle and environment the dog will most likely succeed in.
All of our dogs are fully vetted and receive monthly heartworm and flea/tick preventative medications.
We are very particular in matching up our dogs with perspective adopters as each of our dogs are very unique and require a very specific home environment. Although the potential adopters may be wonderful dog owners, if we do not feel that the placement is a good match, we will not proceed with the adoption. We will however work with the interested parties in helping them to find a good match if they so desire. We take our rescues very seriously and these dogs become part of our family when they enter the rescue. They have been failed by humans in the past and we want to ensure that they won’t be again.
Please remember to be responsible and spay or neuter your pet today=)
Once the application has been reviewed we will contact you for a meet and greet and proceed with the adoption from there. We do have an adoption agreement that must be signed and adhered to in order to finalize the adoption. Our standard adoption fee is $200.00 dependent on the animals needs. We also do home visits and follow up visits and enjoy hearing from our adopters to let us know how their newest family member has settled in. We are available at any time for any questions or concerns regarding an animal that has been adopted from us.
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.
