Stray Network Rescue is a 100% non-profit, no-kill organization dedicated to the rescue and rehoming of dogs. Bailey's Arms Rescue is run by professionals who volunteer their time and resources to help save the lives of these animals.
We host adoption events monthly but all our dogs are in local foster homes in the Mid South New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
Adult dogs will be placed on heartworm preventative prior to adoption. Any dog adopted as a puppy shall begin heartworm preventative at four (4) months of age when receiving the rabies shot. The dog shall remain on heartworm preventative without laps throughout the entire lifespan of the dog. The dog shall be current and up to date on all vaccinations. Unless directed by a licensed veterinarian for reasons related to the health and welfare of the dog, cosmetic surgery will not be performed under any circumstances, including, but not limited to, tail docking or ear cropping.
The donation is not a fee or sale price, but a request to defer or reimburse rescuer for any and all medical expenses, or any other expenses incurred by the dog or rescuer to consider dog for adoption. Our adoption donation is $375 this includes age appropriate vaccinations, microchip, exam, health certificate, transportation from the mid south to adoption state and spay/neuter.
SPAY / NEUTER
ALL OUR DOGS WILL BE SPAY OR NEUTERED PRIOR TO ADOPTION.
COLLARS AND TAGS
The dog will wear a nylon or leather collar or harness with appropriate tags at all times. It is preferable that the collar have a quick snap type closure. At no time is it acceptable for the dog to be wearing a chain or “choke” collar.
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.
