Our rescue will be at the Palo Alto Pet Food Express Saturday, December 10th from 1-4pm and Sunday, December 11th from 12-3pm. All of our dogs are spayed/neutered, shots current (DHPP, Bordetella and Rabies where applicable), dewormed, flea and tick treated and microchipped.
* 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, www.dpsrescue.com 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: www.facebook.com/DPSRescue
This dog will be at Palo Alto Pet Food Express on Saturday, December 10th from 1-4pm and Sunday, December 11th from 12-3pm or until adopted. However, we do meet with those who submit an application and are approved just prior to the event (by invitation only) and they are given the first opportunity to adopt. If you are interested in one of our dogs, we recommend filling out an application prior to the event to be considered. Applications submitted within 24 hours of the event may not necessarily be reviewed.
The Rugrats are here! These 10 week old Dachshund-Beagle mixes (and a few other breeds thrown in to make your perfect little mutts!) are true survivors. They were dropped at a shelter at five weeks old in a box with their four other siblings, and we knew a shelter was no place for puppies to grow up, so we stepped in to rescue them. All eight quickly developed signs of Parvo. We did everything we could to save their lives, but we lost four of them. But thanks to our amazing vet, these four babies survived and are now thriving and ready for their furever homes!
The Rugrats are a spunky little bunch who love to play and are rather obsessed with their toys (which of course, their foster moms spoil them with!). The girls were adopted out last weekend, which suits their brothers just fine, because now they get all the attention! These two are just as sweet as can be. They are both cuddlers and snugglers. They're a big smaller than their sisters (they weigh 8 lbs right now) and have stubby Dachshund legs and longer bodies. The boys are learning to use pee pads and are very good at keeping their comfy bed all clean. They are little sweethearts who adore their foster moms and want as much attention as they can wrangle.
The Rugrats will require adopters who have had a dog in the last 3 years and who have experience raising puppies. These guys will need puppy training and discipline! If there are children in the home, they need to be over the age of 10.
**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.
