Heart to Heart Small Dog Rescue is a nationwide organization, comprised of caring foster parents devoted to the dogs. We are all unpaid volunteers, and 100% of the adoption fees and donations go toward caring for our rescues. It is our mission to rescue and provide safe haven to as many abused, abandoned and unwanted dogs as we have room for. These dogs would otherwise die in kill shelters or on the streets or meet any number of horrible ends that befall the unwanted. We don't discriminate; we take any small dog, regardless of its age or condition.

Heart gets these dogs vetted as needed. Some are healthy when they come to us but many are not. We work hard to bring the dogs to optimum health, often using holistic treatments and remedies. Studies have proven that the overuse of chemical flea, tick, heart worm preventatives, de-wormers, and over vaccinating can cause cancer, liver disease, diabetes, seizures, and heart disease as well as other conditions, so we treat health conditions by natural means whenever possible.

Once the dogs are healthy and of a good mental state we start looking for just the right home for each dog. While in foster care we learn their personalities and temperaments as well as work with them on crate training, house breaking and basic house manners.

Yes, Heart to Heart Small Dog Rescue has a bleeding heart...we take in many dogs that others will not. We rescue, nurture and place Senior Dogs & Special Needs Dogs, along with the young and healthy. Here you will find a variety of breeds and ages. Some dogs may not be listed yet, so if you don't see a dog that grabs you drop us an email at: heartapps@yahoo.com

Heart to Heart Small Dog Rescue is a 501(c)(3) organization; your donations are tax deductible.

Our Adoption Process:

Available Dogs
You can’t go wrong by choosing a Heart dog. We are here for our dogs and their adopters for the rest of the dog’s life. We have a team of dog trainers/behaviorists to assist you with problem behaviors, or simply to offer tips. Our dogs are spayed or neutered, current on their vaccinations, micro chipped, and on heartworm prevention. Our adoption fees range from $150-$250. 100% of the fees are used for the dogs…no member of Heart to Heart is compensated in any way except by the satisfaction of seeing a dog that was once on death row go to his/her loving, forever home. If you do not see what you want, ask for it! We always have dogs that are in evaluation and not posted. Just send a note to heartbod@yahoo.com and tell us what kind of dog you’d like.

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

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.
