About Our Rescue Group:

Renee's Rescues is an all-volunteer rescue organization based in Delaware. Our focus is to rescue misplaced, abandoned, mistreated, abused and/or ill canines and place them into loving homes.

We do a significant amount of rescue work with dogs acquired from large-scale breeding operations. Most, if not all, spent life in cages or outdoor hutches prior to rescue. Our dedicated foster families assist with house-training and crate-training before they are adopted. Additionally, our fosters provide extra TLC and socialization. This enables them to flourish as they start their new chapter of life.

On the fence about adopting? That's okay! We are always looking for new foster families. We provide all veterinary care and supplies. You provide the love. To learn more, please visit, and fill out a foster application under the Forms tab. You can email your application to

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.
