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.
Our goal is to help save the lives of unwanted dogs in the shelters of Michigan. Through positive reinforcement, training, proper vetting, exercise and compassion, they will have the time they need to readjust and learn HOW to be a good dog so that they can live the life they were meant to live. By working closely with the local shelters and rescue groups, many lives will be saved and we can help them find the forever homes they truly deserve.
Not only do we have plans to rescue and care for these wonderful dogs, we also want to take time to educate the public on the importance of spay and neutering, year-round heart worm prevention and yearly vaccinations. Sometimes people have good intentions but just don't understand WHAT responsible pet ownership is all about. Through advice on training, vet care, proper diet and grooming, we can educate those pet owners who want to do the right thing, but just don't know how. That knowledge will help keep pet owners from giving up and surrendering their beloved pets to shelters and rescue groups.
Along with education on responsible pet ownership, we also want to incorporate responsible "Pit Bull" ownership. This is a breed that our rescue is very passionate about. So many good dogs are put down in shelters and dumped on the streets just because they appear to be a Pit Bull... this has got to stop! The scrutiny that this particular group of dogs has been under has driven us to help them. Through care and guidance if we can change just one person's mind about this group of breeds, we will have done our job.
All dogs adopted from Divine Canine Rescue will be fully vetted and spayed/neutered before going to their forever homes.
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.
