Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier
A Westport, CT 06880 rescue helping to find loving homes for dogs.
1 - 11 of 11 Adoptable Pets at This Shelter
We are a volunteer-based program. Most of our dogs come from the heavily overpopulated southern states, usually from Arkansas. We use Alpha Dog Transport to get your new family member home to you. They are wonderful, and we would not trust anyone else with our babies.
An application does not obligate you to adopt from us, but it does show that you are serious about the adoption process.
We are a group of dedicated volunteers passionate about helping the underdog that has been tossed aside for whatever reason. Once we take a new animal into our group, we take them for complete vetting before we list them as available for adoption. We try to match each of our animals to the perfect home, and the perfect home to one of our dogs. We do not adopt our animals on a first come first serve basis.
Our volunteers know our dogs the best, and will be able to make better decisions on animal placements. Just because you are not selected for the animal you apply for, does not mean that you do not have a great home to offer to a rescued animal. We want the entire family to be a perfect match for a happily ever after story.
Our adoption fees vary from dog to dog. All the dogs in our care are supported only by donations. All the adoption donations we collect are spent in full on the care of the animals in our group, such as food, vetting, and heartworm preventative, flea and tick preventative, and any other medicine that might be required by the vet.
These dogs are not inexpensive to rescue but they are our passion, we will do all we can do give them a happy ending to a very sad beginning. We love our dogs and no matter what happens in the future if you cannot care for them, we do require that they be returned to us. 10 days or 10 years, it does not matter. We are honest and supportive; we will be here if you need us.
Desperate House Dogs reserves the right to deny any application for any reason without explanation. We do receive a lot of applications, just because you don't hear back from us right away does not mean your application has been denied.
