Little Big Dog Rescue, Inc.'s adoption process

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.

About Little Big Dog Rescue, Inc.

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).

Support adoption and rescue. Why go to a dog breeder, cat breeder or pet store to buy a dog or buy a cat when you can adopt?

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life.

What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder?

When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes.

So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
