* If you are interested in a dog, please first read the biography on the dog (keep scrolling down for the bio!) and then go to our website, for an application. * We do not have a facility. All dogs live in foster homes. Arrangements to meet dogs occur after an approved application has been accepted. * We do not ship our dogs for any reason. * Our adoption fee is $400 for each dog/puppy. * If it is on a weekend of our adoptions, follow us on @DPSRescue on Twitter to get real time updates on our adoptions. We will also post at the end of the evening the names of those dogs who have been adopted:

Electra is a 1 year old Tuxedo cat. She came in with her sister Zena. Yes, they are sisters. No, we have not dipped in the cat nip. Sometimes there is more than one Dad....Electra is a totally chill cat. She gets along with everyone. She came into her foster home and was like, 'Hey, look, our new home.' And that was it. She was happy. Though her sister loves to play with toys and may need a support group for her obsession, Electra is happy to play with the feather a few others for a minute and after that, she's good. She'll come chill and watch the other crazies. On more than one occasion she has been heard making fun of the other cats who chase that stupid laser thing. We've threatened to withhold food if she gives all our secrets away. So what if they'll never catch it. That was never promised...

Electra lives with other cats and does just fine. She also lives with cat savvy dogs. So far she's kept her distance and not too interested in them. They're all taken with sister but that may because she's sharing her cat nip. 

**Not all of our dogs go to each adoption event. We want to make sure if you are interested in a dog that we have the dog at adoptions but that can only happen if you fill out an application ahead of time and are pre-approved. (Generally this must happen prior to the weekend)

**If you are wanting to submit an application within 24 hours of an event, please print off the application and bring with you as well as submitting it. You may still submit it and if time and volunteers permit, we will contact you. Most applications submitted the weekend of adoptions are not responded to until after the adoption weekend.

About Our Rescue Group...

We are passionate folks who love dogs and love people! We strive to make the most appropriate match between human and canine. Because our dogs live in foster homes we know about their temperament and personality and therefore can help families and individuals decide if the dog is a good match or not. We are excited to help people find the right pooch for them and look forward to meeting great folks and welcoming them into the DPS Family.
