About Our Rescue Group:

Pawsitively Pom Rescue is dedicated to nurturing the souls of abandoned Pomeranians, one dog at a time. We provide a safe haven and loving environment where these beautiful creatures can begin to heal and learn to trust until their forever home is found.

Come Meet our Pets:

All Pawsitively Poms are located in loving foster homes in Pennsylvania. If you are interested in adopting through Pawsitively Pom, we will make arrangements with you to meet the dog prior to adoption.

Our Adoption Process:

Our adoption fee of $250 includes vaccinations, heartworm and fecal tests, spay/neuter, and microchip. The adoption process consists of an application, reference checks, telephone interview, and home visit; there are no exceptions.

To be considered as an adopter, you must: be at least 21 years old; possess a valid driver's license with current address; obtain the consent of your landlord, if relevant; and be able and willing to spend the time and money necessary to provide medical treatment, proper nourishment and care, and training for your new pet.

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.
