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.
All puppies/dogs are vetted before leaving the island and once they are in NJ. All are given age appropriate vaccinations, worming treatments and flea and tick preventative. All puppies/dogs live in foster homes, we do not have a shelter facility. Puppies under six months old are adopted out with a contract stating that the adopter is to have the puppy altered at 6 months of age and provide proof to Island Puppy Rescue of surgery. At that time Island Puppy Rescue will reimburse the adopter $50.00. Puppies over the age of 6 months are spayed or neutered prior to adoption.
The adopter pays a $300 adoption fee and signs an adoption and spay/neuter contract. Information on low cost spay neuter options will be provided to the adopter. Island Puppy Rescue will do follow ups to see how the adoption is going.
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.
