About Our Rescue Group:

We try to save as many dogs that are on death row as we can. These dogs come from Texas and face certain death if rescues to not take them. We pay for transport to CT and your adoption fee covers the transportation and vaccinations and spay/neuter. we also use any fees to cover medical costs for any dog that is sick or injured. We are always looking for foster homes in the northeast so if you can open your home and your heart please contact us.

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.
