Little Big Dog Rescue, Inc. Dog rescue in Monterey, VA

Little Big Dog Rescue has two missions. One is to rescue chained/penned and yard sale dogs. The other is to rescue senior dogs who are left homeless due to the death of an owner, or the owner moving to a nursing home. We are a home-based rescue. We have no physical shelter. Our foster homes are often the first time a chained/penned dog sees the inside of a house. While in foster care the dogs are socialized, house-trained, crate- and leash-trained, and get to experience the joy of being wanted and loved. After rescuing animals for several years, we started our non-profit in 2016. We are a small organization and are always looking for volunteers (foster, transport, fundraise, socialize dogs). We are also dependent on donations to cover our expenses. Donations are tax-deductible and 100% of donations go to the medical expenses incurred by vetting the dogs (spay, neuter, surgery for eye conditions, removal and biopsy of masses, etc).

Thanks to animal transports, we adopt anywhere but usually it would be the northeast, such as New York State, Connecticut, etc.

Additional adoption info

We require an adoption application; we check all references; we require a home visit; and upon adoption, we require the adopter to sign an adoption contract which says, among other things, that if the adoption doesn't work out, the dog must come back to Little Big Dog Rescue.
