Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:Mission Statement
Disaster Dogs Dog Rescue, Inc. is a non-profit organization dedicated to rescuing dogs who have been abandoned or displaced due to a disaster situation. By working with committed volunteers, foster homes, and local veterinarians, we hope to provide these dogs with temporary care and place them in safe, loving, permanent homes. With a comprehensive website design, we hope to be a resource not only for those who can no longer care for their dogs, but those who are seeking information about responsible dog ownership or looking to volunteer time or resources to the cause.

About Our Rescue Group:Why a dog through Disaster Dogs?
Any dog that we adopt out comes vaccinated, spayed/neutered, microchipped, dewormed (if needed), and with a current check-up (within 12 months of date of adoption) by our vet. We also send each dog home with their very own 72 hour disaster kit!
Their basic start-up kit will contain:
Water (72 hr supply)
Wet food (72 hr supply-pop top cans)
Basic First Aid Kit
Emergency Info Pack (Photo, Vet Contact Info, Emergency Contact Info, Medical Records) in a waterproof sealed plastic bag
Pet Alert Window Decal
2 travel bowls
Bin to keep it in!
Our idea behind including a kit upon adoption, is to send an adopted dog home on the right foot (or paw) and set him/her up for success. We hope that this motivates owners to develop something like this for other pets they may have, as well as add to it so it is tailored specifically for their new best friend!
Now through April 10th, all adoptions come with a FREE MINI SESSION with Baby Fred Photography!!!

A coordinator will contact you within 72 hours to review your application and schedule a home visit. Any dog we adopt out will need to be introduced to your home and other pets for compatibility. All dogs will be neutered or spayed prior to adoption.
An adoption contract will be signed and fee paid when you take your dog home.
