Rural Dog Rescue saves the lives of dogs from high kill shelters in rural North Carolina and Virginia where strays can be euthanized in 72 hours and owner surrenders can be euthanized immediately if the shelters are full. All dogs go to their new homes spayed or neutered, up to date on all shots, wormed (although a 2nd worming may be required), started on heart worm and flea and tick preventative and microchipped.
Although we try to be as accurate as possible, Rural Dog Rescue cannot guarantee the breed or full-grown adult size of any of the dogs or puppies in its care. Because many of these dogs were found as strays or are the result of irresponsible, unplanned breeding, we do not know the dog's exact background and can only list breed and size by our best educated guess. If exact breed and size are important to you, please consider adopting a dog from a specific breed rescue - We want our dogs to be adopted by people who will love and care for them forever for who they are - no matter what breed and size they turn out to be!
Please contact www.ruraldogrescue.com to complete an application (applications do not commit you to the dog - it is used for the sole purpose of screening applicants) Adoption events are held every Saturday from 12 -3 at Howl To The Chief, 733 8th Street SE, Washington, DC (please note that not all dogs listed are at the adoption events).
