Important Note

Bindi is best friends with Rika. Please adopt both of them so they can stay together!
Application form here:

We are looking to place this dog within a 2.5 hour radius of Washington, DC but we can also consider other areas IF we have a volunteer that can accomplish a home visit and we have a safety net. Other areas could be North Carolina, southern areas of Virginia, Pittsburgh, PA area, Denver, CO area, San Diego area, San Francisco Area, Portland area and Seattle area.

Bindi and her sister Rika are somewhat bonded and ideally we would like to place them in the same home. However, we will consider splitting them up but ONLY if an interested family/person already has a young, smallish playful dog in their home. NEITHER RIKA NOR BINDI WOULD DO WELL AS AN ONLY DOG.

Bindi was rescued from the Okinawa Prefecture Animal Control Center in Okinawa Japan along with 2 siblings. She is now being fostered in the DC area with her sister Rika. Although they get along great and spend most of their time together, we don't feel that they are bonded and could go to separate homes with other young, small to medium sized dogs. Bindi is the more confident of the two pups and loves to play and she doesn't have much fear. She is a big dog in a small dogs body. She has a little more of the "doxie" type of body than Rika and you can see it in her legs. Bindi is house broken and crate trained and is estimated in the 8 month old range. She's good about chewing on toys but like any puppy, will sometimes slip up and chew on something she isn't supposed to. Bindi is being fostered with her sister with elementary school aged children and she's good with them. She will jump up though and will use her mouth when playing so probably children 6+ would be best. She has not been cat tested. Bindi is fully vetted with all vaccinations, micro-chip, spay, heart worm preventatives, flea/tick preventatives and heart worm negative. Her adoption fee is $500 but if a family is interested in adopting both Bindi and Rika (our first choice), we will reduce the adoption fee to $850/pair.

About Doggies Inc

About Our Rescue Group...

D.O.G.S. (Doggie Orphans Great & Small or for short Doggies Inc) is a 501 (c)(3) non profit organization dedicated to making a difference for neglected, abused and unwanted animals. We rescue animals from “death row” at various shelters, get all vetting done and help them to find forever homes.

Doggies Inc has three branches. One in Okinawa, Japan where most of our animals are rescued, one in Southern Maryland, and one in southern California.

Okinawa Branch

Many animals are abandoned due to family situations, the economy, and military permanent change of stations.
Our main goal is to help the dogs and cats that find their way to the Okinawa Prefecture Animal Protection & Control Center (Ozato). Over 2000 dogs and double the number of cats were gassed at this facility in 2012. Since then, due to the efforts of education and rescue groups being allowed into the facility to pull adoptable animals, vet them and then find them good homes, those numbers have steadily declined. We not only rescue animals from the facility ourselves but we also are working hard to get the word out about this facility so that people will choose to adopt an animal in need as opposed to buying a pet from a pet store or breeder.

Our secondary goal is to provide people, especially military families, with information on how to leave the island with their pet when they leave Japan for their next duty station. No one really wants to leave their pet behind but it can be very frustrating if accurate information is not easily accessible. We want to guide people in the right directions and answer basic questions about taking their pets with them when they leave Japan.

Our third goal is to help reunite people with pets that have been lost. We provide people with the steps they need to take to claim their pet if it ends up at the Okinawa Prefecture Animal Control Center (Ozato) in the event he/she gets picked up off base by animal control.

California Branch

In 2007 there were 391,457 dogs and cats euthanized in CA public shelters. Doggies Inc California's main goal is the rescue these dogs and cats out of the local shelters, get them fully vetted and adopt them out to forever homes. We pull out of many shelters in Southern California.

Maryland Branch - mostly handles dogs that have been rescued in Okinawa and are transported to the states to find their "fur-ever" people.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Currently all of our work is done out our homes and the homes of our foster families. Please contact us if you would like more information about any of our animals.

Our Adoption Process...

We require you fill out a pet application, so that we can match you with the perfect dog. We also have a contract you must sign to ensure that the dog never ends up in a situation like this again. All of our dogs come already fixed, vet checked, and shots up to date.
