Rescue Riders Cooperative VA's Adoption Process

1. Submit Application

Once you find a pet you are interested in you contact the listed rescue and request an application.

2. Interview

Upon receiving your application, the rescue group will do a background check, verify references and do the interview(s) with you

3. Sign Adoption Contract

Each rescue group has its own contract and terms

4. Pay Fee

Payment will be made directly to the rescues via their payment systems.

5. Take the Pet Home

Lastly, the rescues will agree on a meeting place for you to pick up your new family member based on your location. This is the best part!

All our rescues work hard to find loving homes for the dogs, cats, kittens, and puppies that find their way into their care. These animals come from a wide variety of backgrounds and situations and all of them are looking for a forever home.

They will be completely vaccinated, vetted, neutered/spayed (if age appropriate) and on heartworm protection. All of them come with complete medical records. They are transported to you with our USDA licensed and certified transport – Rescue Riders LLC, “The most animal-friendly transport on the road.”

Their adoption fees vary but, in all cases, it covers the animals vetting, vaccinations, spay/neuter as well as their foster care, and their transportation to your area.

Thank you for opening your home to a rescue animal.


About Rescue Riders Cooperative VA

Rescue Riders Cooperative is a group of rescues across the south east that are linked together by our love of animals and our desire to see as many as possible in the loving arms of a new family. Each rescue is independently run but realizing that there is strength in numbers, we have formed a cooperative to work together to place as many animals as possible.

Not only do the rescues save these animals and give them badly needed health care but they also work tirelessly in their home communities to help educate people regarding the importance of spay & neuter and how it reduces pet overpopulation.

When you adopt one of their dogs you help with this mission. We all thank you for that support and for opening your home and heart to an animal who needs you.

You are a hero!

Come Meet Rescue Riders Cooperative VA's Pets

Our rescues generally do not have an actual shelter building in the New England area. This means it is often not possible to meet these babies prior to their adoption however all of these rescues have been rehoming dogs to the North East for many years and are happy to offer you references who can fill you in on their experience and how well the process works.

There is generally a money-back guarantee and a mechanism for returning the dog to the rescue if needed. All these rescues then work to re-home the animal. None are returned to a shelter. We never leave a rescue behind!
