Owning and loving a dog is an ENORMOUS responsibility for the life of the dog. There is no guarantee that the dog you adopt will turn out to be perfect any more than a child you bring into the world. No one, human or canine, comes with a guarantee of physical and mental health and a problem free life. The most important thing to remember as you make this journey with your rescued dog is that it is a journey that must be made together. Your dog desperately wants to feel loved and safe and to trust you and please you. Be patient and loving and try “walking in his paws” and realize that at the moment he is TRULY DOING THE BEST HE CAN. Take it slowly and celebrate each tiny success and most of all, remember to laugh at the funny moments. Your dog will laugh with you and believe he has done something incredibly wonderful to have made you feel so happy. Play with him; bond with him. Let him know you love him, and he will reward you twenty times over with his love. We do pre and post adoption home checks.

We have an adoption fee to cover rescue and medical expenses. We only adopt to in-state families so we can perform post adoption home checks. Should your home not be compatible for the dog you chose, we mandate that the dog is returned to us immediately. We reserve the right to approve all new adopters. You must be willing to provide appropriate and necessary medical care and seek obedience training for your new adopted dog or puppy. You must agree to keep your dog through all of your life’s changes. * Please note that “COURTESY” listings are pets from other rescue organizations who may not have their own Petfinder site. Their adoption fees may differ significantly from ours. Please query the contact person listed for each “COURTESY” pet to learn its adoption fee. Thank you.
