About Our Rescue Group:

The name of our Independent Rescue group is called DogTag: You're It! We are dedicated and devoted rescuers of the mistreated, relinquished, and neglected animals that wander into our lives. From the streets, to the sheltered, those abandoned, and those turned over unwanted--our mission is to prove to the innocent and defenseless creatures we rescue, that they will not only be wanted and loved from this moment forward, but that they only have bright and hopeful futures to look forward to as beloved members of the DogTag: You're It! family and ultimately their new family in a forever home.

We work hard to make sure each and every one of our rescue pups is healthy and treated medically before placing them in any foster or forever home. Each and every one of our rescues receive medical care immediately upon rescue without a moment's hesitation. Included in vetting is a spay/neuter procedure, microchip, heartworm and fecal tests, Parvo test for puppies, complete vaccinations, and dental if age 2 years and up even younger if needed. They also get treated with monthly with flea/parasite preventative.

We also rescue senior and medical dogs, we provide all medical interventions requested by our veterinarian Dr. Lee and Dr. Jimerson. Our goal is to not rush their adoption, but to ensure that each one of our precious pups will only be in a home as a loved and cherished member of the DogTag: You're It family to their new forever home.

Our Adoption Process:

We require an adoption application to be filled out prior to arranging any home-screening. Included in the application is a veterinarian reference check as well as work or personal reference check. We never adopt out on a first come, first serve basis because we consider this a lifelong commitment and we want to be certain that we are making the best decision for both the forever family and our rescue. No one knows our rescues better than we do and we want to be certain that we consider their individuality when choosing their home. At the time of the home screening we will observe the interaction of our rescue with each and every member of the household including the family pets.

When our rescue goes to his or her new home, he or she will be up to date with all medical, current on vaccinations, microchipped, spayed or neutered, treated with Revolution a high quality flea/parasite preventative, as well as supplied with a collar, leash, and Canine Friendly harness. We also feed all of our rescues while they have been in foster homes, grain-free and high quality nutritious food such as Pulsar and Blue Buffalo. It is mandated for all of our puppies to attend puppy obedience classes within two months of their adoption.

We take such special care of our pups and we want to be completely positive that we place them in a home perfect for that particular dog. We require an adoption application and a home screening to make sure our safety standards are met. The adoption donation fee ranges from $320 to $420 for our rescues which includes spay/neuter, full vaccination, fecal test, heartworm test, microchip, in many cases dental cleaning, flea/parasite preventative, collar, and harness. Our adoption donation fee will allow us to continue to help our other rescues, some of which are medical and senior dogs in permanent foster home.

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.
