Welcome to the Kingdom!
We would like to take a moment to introduce ourselves to you and your organization. After many months of planning and preparation, launched Royalty Dog Rescue, LLC on April 26th, 2013. We are an all volunteer res- cue groups, located in beautiful Tuscarawas County, Ohio. We began as a small group formed to help save dogs in need, and have grown to over 20 fosters and almost 15 volunteers. We do not have a facility - our pets for adoption are fostered, providing them with a sense of a home life while they wait for their forever home. We work with other rescues in the area by taking in some dogs when they are filled to capacity. Founded by dog lovers, who combined have over 40 years of rescue experience. We have thoroughly screened foster parents for the dogs in our program. Our mission statement is, Royalty Dog Rescue saves dogs who have run out of time at dog pounds and brings people and animals together to enrich each others lives. Our goals include the rescue, rehabilitation, spay/neuter and adoption of the abandoned dogs, as well public education regarding breeds and the importance of spay/neuter of animals in battling the escalating overpopulation problem. Royalty Dog Rescue, take dogs into our program from dog pounds, humane societies, surrendered by owners and from commercial breeders. We will never pay an individual or breeder for a dog. All dogs are spayed/neutered and receive complete vet care, before they can be adopted. In compliance with State of Ohio law, we are a registered rescue, we are an Incorporated Non-profit and we are a registered 501c3 non-profit with the IRS. We are solely run on donations, whether from adoptions, events or fundraisers.

All dogs 6 months and older are spayed/neutered before they can be adopted. For puppies under the age of 6 months, we have a Foster-To-Adopt Program.
In compliance with State of Ohio law, we are a registered rescue with the Dept. of Agriculture and we are a registered 501c3 with the IRS, all donations are tax deductible.
Once we receive that, we will call your personal references and your vet. Please make sure and let your vet know that we will be calling and give them permission to speak to us! Remember, we are a small all volunteer rescue, so it may sometimes take a week or two once we receive your application to call them. Please be patient with us during this process.
•The second step is that we arrange a meet and greet with the dog or dogs that you are interested in. Our adoption procedure includes having several meet and greet with our prince or princesses, along with their foster parents before an adoption is finalized. If you are willing to commit to these visits, we are more than willing to adopt to you and your family. Adopting a rescue dog is a long term commitment .We are not a facility, all of our dogs are in foster homes. The meet and greet will be held at one of our board members home. If you currently have pets in your home, you are more than welcome to bring them to this meeting.
•The third step in the process is that we will arrange for a home visit. We will bring the dog or dogs that you are interested to your home.
•The final step in the process is that the Royalty Dog Rescue Board members will meet and decide which kingdom is the best fit for our Royal and then the adoption will be finalized. We do require that you come to us for your final adoption also.
Some important things to note:
•It may take a week or two to arrange a meet and greet due to the foster families schedule.
•Our policy is NOT first come first serve, it is whomever is the best fit for the dog and sometimes the dog chooses for us!
•If a home visit is done more than 60 miles from Dover, Ohio, a $25.00 mileage fee will be added for each 60 miles, to the adoption donation.
•YES!! We do adopt out of state, but, you are required to come to us for the meet and greets and adoption. In the case of an out of state adoption, we utilize a rescue close to you to preform the home visit. If you are willing to make these trips, then we are willing to adopt out of state! No, we are sorry, we do not ship our animals.
All adopters must sign a contract and agree to return any dog to us if you cannot keep him/her for any reason.
Fee's are decided individually for each dog and are determined by their vet care.
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, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
