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.
Due to our home visit policy, we adopt out only to the Northern Virginia area.
We also serve as a resource to the public and to pet owners by providing education and information on responsible pet ownership, including the importance of spay/neuter, positive behavior training, good nutrition and preventative medical care.
Our adoption events are currently held at Pet Supplies Plus in Centreville, on the second Saturday of each month from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. Check our website at http://www.healingheartsrescuegroup.org/upcoming-events for other events.
We require an application, personal meeting with the animal, veterinary and landlord references if applicable. Home visits are done after this process is complete.
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.
