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.
K9 Rescue of VA is a small rescue group made up of volunteers. We rescue dogs from high kill shelters from a number of states including, West Virginia, Tennessee, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, and Virginia. Our focus is on saving lives in a responsible and humane manner. Once we have rescued a shelter dog we take the following steps to provide them with the love, respect, and dignity they deserve:
* Health assessment and veterinary care as needed including shots, spay/neuter, worming, wound care, ect..
* Behavior assessment and any necessary training
* Grooming as needed
We also take in owner surrenders and strays as we have space available.
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.
