In order to adopt from our rescue, all pets in the household MUST be spayed/neutered, current on vaccinations and on heartworm preventative.
If you're interested in adopting, you MUST submit an online application. You're more than welcomed to come meet the dogs at our events, but please note that we do not do out-the-door adoptions. We must have your approved application on file before you can adopt.
You don't need to wait until our events to meet our dogs, though. You can submit an application and we will make arrangements for you to meet/adopt the dog you are ready to fall in love with.
Hi there puppy peoples! My name is SISTER and I'm such a big, cute puppy.
I was found way out in the desert with a couple of siblings, and although it's been a long road to getting me accustomed to humans, I'm beginning to like most of them. Humans can be pretty cool sometimes, and the humans here at the "Big Dog Rescue" have been taking very good care of me.
I'm nearing 15 months of age, and I'm just as cute as can be! I'm going to grow up to be a big dog, so if you're looking for a beautiful puppy and are willing to make that lifelong commitment of having a dog, I'd love to meet you! I was dumped once, way out in the desert, and I'm sure not wanting to be dumped anywhere again! I was scared.......and I'm a little worried about the future. Will I ever have a real home with really good people who promise, cross their hearts and hope to die that I will belong to them forever? Please tell me that there IS a family for me........If that's you, I'm ready to meet you!
