My story

Hello, my name is Duke. I am approximately 1 year old and I was lucky to be found, since I was wandering the streets by myself.I am told I am a very sweet boy. I love all types of people I am great with other dogs, kids and I love walks on a leash, and I behave very well. I am a wonderful family companion, Toys, treats, my foster dog and human siblings – I love them all!

Can’t you just see you and me and our family having fun playing and running and hugging and sofa snuggling and living the best life ever? I know I can. Let’s do it!

Additional adoption info

What are the requirements to adopt from The Joshua Fund? 1. You must live within the State of New York -OR- within a 350-mile radius of Lake Placid, NY. This includes Canada. You must come to our Adoption Center near Lake Placid, NY to meet us and your new dog or puppy on a designated Adoption Day. The adoption will be finalized at that time. 2. You must be over the age of 23 to adopt from us unless you are married. Proof of marriage is required if you are under 23 years old. 3. Any children in your household must be at least 8 years old. 4. You must fill out our adoption application. It's an online form so you can type in your answers and then click SUBMIT when you are finished. 5. You must also submit 4 or 5 photos of both the interior and exterior of your home. Exterior photos must include the front, the back, a photo that shows how your house is situated in relation to the road it is on, and one of the fenced-in area if you do have a fence. Interior photos should include all of the interior areas where the dog will spend its time. 6. As proof of home ownership, you must submit a scan or a file of a recent property tax receipt, mortgage statement or homeowner’s insurance statement if you own your home. 7. If you rent, you must submit a scan or file of your lease agreement including any provisions or addendums involving pets. 8. Please send all files/scans via email to: info@JoshuaFundRescue.org 9. If you fail to provide these documents or leave out any pertinent information on your application, we will discard your application. Are there any adoption requirements related to my current pets? 1. We require that all other pets in your home are up-to-date on vaccinations. 2. We require that all other pets in your home are spayed/neutered. 3. All dogs should be on regular monthly heart worm and appropriate flea/tick prevention medications. What is the adoption fee? The adoption fee for any dog or puppy is $450. The adoption fee helps us to recover a portion of the expenses we routinely incur in rescue (boarding, vaccinations, worming, spay/neuter and transport) so that we can continue to save other dogs. Please note that the adoption fee is NON-REFUNDABLE. When I submit an application, how long does it take to hear from The Joshua Fund? As soon as we open your completed application, we’ll send you an e-mail acknowledgement. It will take from a few days to two weeks to hear back from us. Our volunteers have day jobs and families to take care of and they do this in their spare time. Canadian Adopters will have all the paperwork needed to cross the Border the same day (there is no extra charge for the paperwork.) Your fee/fees must be USD.

Go meet their pets

We do not have a physical building like a shelter does. We are a Foster-based Rescue and our dogs and puppies remain with their Foster Family in their city/state of origin until they have a pre-approved, confirmed adopter. We mainly rescue from the Houston, Texas area.

More about this rescue

The Joshua Fund rescues dogs from high kill shelters across the US but primarily from the Houston, TX area. All of our dogs are tested and treated for any medical conditions they may have. They're up to date on shots, are spayed/neutered and are heartworm negative when they get their Health Certificate for interstate travel. We take special care to ensure that our dogs are healthy before they leave for their journey North. We rescue dogs who are unwanted and have no hope for a future without us. We're a small Rescue, taking only as many dogs at a time as we can place into excellent homes. We know that our dogs have a sad past - we strive to give them a wonderful future. The Joshua Fund is a Registered Rescue with NYS Department of Agriculture and Markets. Registration No. RR096
