My Story

Sky is a 5 yr old great dane that came into rescue because of a huge mammary tumor that her owners could not afford to treat. Sky was admitted to the UPenn Mammary study and the tumor was removed. Unfortunately, she does have aggressive cancer. Sky has been in her foster home for 6 weeks now and is such a love bug.

We know that most adopters are typically looking to adopt younger dogs not an older dog. Fortunately Sky is safe in her foster home for the rest of her life. Please consider a donation to help support these older dogs in their final days. And follow us on Facebook for updates on our old guys and gals: https://www.facebook.com/peacefulpawsgiantbreedrescue

Adoption Process

Peaceful Paws has a simple adoption process, explained below.

First, You Should Know

1. Peaceful Paws does not adopt to families with children under 10 years of age.
2. We rarely have puppies under 9 months of age in rescue. It happens occasionally but it is rare.
3. We do not adopt to renters unless there are special circumstances.
4. We rarely have dogs who are highly social with people AND dogs AND cats.

Now, onto the process...
1. Complete an application to adopt online at www.peacefulpawsrescue.org or email info@peacefulpawsrescue.org to have an application mailed to you.

2. A volunteer will call you to talk to you about your expectations and explain how the adoption process works.

3. Should both of you wish to proceed, we'll either arrange to visit your home first or we'll arrange for you to visit a dog that matches your family.

4. Then we'll switch that around, and either you'll visit a dog that matches your family or we'll arrange for a dog to visit your home.

During this time, we're available to answer any questions you may have.

Adoption Donation
--------------------------
Peaceful Paws asks for a donation at the time of adoption to help defray the many expenses of running a rescue, including administrative, medical, behavioral, general and emergency costs. In return, we make sure the dog is spayed or neutered, heartworm tested, up to date on vaccinations and given a clean bill of health (or disclose any known issues). On average, we spend $350 or more on a dog in our program.

6 months or younger - $400
6 months to 6 years of age - $350
over 6 years of age - $250
