My story

DOB 7-4-15 Carlita is a little girl, weighs around seven pounds. She had a rough start in life, coming from a terrible situation. She had no hair, skin infections and was heartworm positive. Since being with us, she has been treated for everything. She has a gorgeous coat, is heart worm negative and is in good health. Unfortunately, Carlita can be a little nippy until she gets to know you. She would not be good with children, and would need an owner who was willing to take the time to let her feel safe. Carlita is so deserving of a forever home, and we know there is someone out there with the patience and love to give it to her. Once she feels safe, she is a sweetheart with her "people". Her adoption fee is $350.00 and transport fee is $140.00.

Their adoption process


Submit Application

An application does not obligate you to adopt from us, but it does show that you are serious about the adoption process.

Additional adoption info

The first step in the adoption process is to fill out an online adoption application. We sometimes receive a lot of interest on an animal and can't always reply to each email in a timely manner. An application does not obligate you to adopt from us, but it does show that you are serious about the adoption process. Please remember we are all volunteers.

After you submit your application please allow a few days for a volunteer to review your application. During this time your vet reference will be checked and a volunteer with determine if it is the best match for you and the animal. Applications are not approved on a first come, first serve basis. We match up the best home for the animal, so even if the pet has other applications, this does not meet he/she will be adopted to that home.

Once your application has been approved a volunteer with contact you to set up a phone interview. This is the perfect time for you to ask any questions you have about the adoption process and the animal you are interested in.

We love hearing follow ups about our babies and hope you find the perfect match. Thank you for considering adoption.

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

More about this rescue

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.
