Pets at Our Rescue Group:
Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:Red Hook Dog Rescue (Northern New England) adopts to NH, VT, ME and MA. We are very "hands on" and like to stay in touch with adopters and often provide free training sessions to give adoptions the best chance of success! With that in mind, we like our adopters to be within a 2 hour drive of southeastern NH (where our volunteer co-ordinator is based) so we can be there for you quickly if you need us!
About Our Rescue Group:Red Hook Dog Rescue is a labour of love, rescuing literally one "forgotten" dog at a time from long-term boarding situations and finding them great homes in Northern New England.
People so often focus on animals on "death row" at kill shelters, they forget what happens to those dogs once they are "rescued". Many times, they end up just being stuck in boarding, in some cases for years at a time. A kennel is not a home.
We are a tiny, tiny rescue. We do not accept owner surrenders, though if you are having trouble keeping your pet we are always happy to talk to you and help you look for solutions to either keep your pet, or find a responsible place for the pet to go.
Our Adoption Process:We require an adoption application and home visit, as well as vet reference checks. Our adoption fee is $250 and there is an adoption contract.
We sometimes require novice dog owners to attend one-on-one training/obedience classes with a local trainer (at no cost to the adopter).
All our animals for adoption are spayed/neutered, healthy, and up to date on shots. All have at least basic obedience training (housetrained, crate trained, know "sit" and "down").
