About Our Rescue Group:MISSION STATEMENT: Bailey's Arms Rescue is a group of volunteer dog lovers whose mission is to rescue, provide sanctuary, and ultimately to re-home abandoned, stray and neglected dogs in Mississippi and Tennessee and surrounding areas. We rescue from the Mid-South where almost all the shelters are EXTREMELY HIGH KILL and then we transport them up North for adoption. We adopt out to any state of course but specialize in adoption to Pennsylvania/New Jersey/Maryland/Connecticut/New York/Massachusettes and Delaware.
Bailey's Arms Rescue dogs are housed in foster homes where they are provided with an enormous amount of love and attention. All our animals are spayed or neutered and brought up-to-date on shots before being placed in their new homes. At times some of our dogs are also house trained and taught basic obedience.
Bailey's Arms Rescue dogs are evaluated for temperament and personality. This helps us to place them in homes that are well suited to their needs and to the needs of their future owners.
Bailey's Arms 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.
Come Meet our Pets:We host adoption events monthly but all our dogs are in local foster homes in the Mid South and in Pennsylvania.
Our Adoption Process:We consider applicants for adoption who agree to adhere to our adoption contract rules which require adopters to care for the pets as discussed in the contract. We do have an adoption fee that covers the medical, boarding and transport of the dog to the new owner. All requirements are outlined in the application and contract. For example: ENVIRONMENT
Adopter agrees to care for the dog in a humane and responsible manner and to provide it with clean and adequate shelter, food, water, and veterinary care. The dog shall reside indoors, in the adopter’s home, and live as a family member and companion. Furthermore, adopter agrees to have adequate fencing enclose the yard (if applicable). Adequate fencing is defined as a fence that encloses a yard or large area, preventing the dog from going outside such area and preventing other animals, intruders or children from easily gaining entry to such area. An adequate fence does not include a split rail, electric, or invisible fence. At no time is it acceptable for the dog to be chained.
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 fee is $250
SPAY / NEUTER AGREEMENT (This is a contract of MANDATORY Spay/Neuter as defined herein).All adult dogs will be spayed / neutered prior to adoption.
A rescued puppy shall be spayed / neutered within four (4) months of adoption. Proof of sterilization by the veterinarian must be provided to rescuer. If the health of the dog delays the spay / neuter, the adopter must provide rescuer with a statement from the veterinarian making this determination. The statement must inform as to why a spay/neuter cannot be performed and when it is anticipated to be performed. It is the responsibility of the adopter to ensure that the rescuer has received proof of sterilization or notification of delay. If this agreement is not honored the adopter will acknowledge and agree that the contract has been violated and immediately return the dog to rescuer with no expectation of refund. All adult dogs will be spayed / 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.
