About Our Rescue Group:Our Mission
Dog House Adoptions cares for the dogs who need help now, educates the public to protect dogs of the future, allows dogs to give back as they do best - with their whole hearts, and we accomplish each stage with a sense of humor.
The way we see it, dogs are not throw away items. Their lives have value and, when the community comes together to support their needs, dogs do something miraculous. No matter how weary, weathered or worn, dogs give back with their whole hearts, enriching human lives in healing ways. This is why we've made it our job to facilitate loving, healing dog/human connections.
Finding Pet Parents for Orphaned Dogs
Why do we call our rescue dogs orphans? The dogs in our care are not homeless. They have a transitional home that satisfies their physical needs and caring people who tend to their emotional needs. But what they need most is a pet parent.
We seek pet parents for our darling orphans, people with a dog's best interest at heart, so our precious babies can feel loved and cared for - for life. From the moment they come to us, they give all they have. The ultimate gift we can give back is a safe place to live out their days, a forever home. Visit our adoptable dogs and become a loving pet parent today!
