Rescues come from a variety of places - from seizures, to commercial breeders, to owner surrenders due to the economy and loss of jobs, owner health issues, or even owner death.
Many of the dogs taken into rescue are not socialized properly and experience some difficulty adjusting to home situations. Most will not be suitable for families with small children. They need a safe and secure fenced yard to play in. After being made ready for adoption, families who have a preliminary adoption application on file will be contacted. We ask that you be patient in this process. Because of the lack of socialization and the difficult transition the dogs are having, many of the dogs needed to remain in foster care for a much longer time than we had initially hoped.
Other areas also have dogs available. Please check each area by clicking on the tabs below. Even if there is not a dog listed in the region, we may have dogs being readied in foster care for adoption. We usually do not list any dogs until we feel they are ready for adoption.
If you are interested in any of the dogs who might come into rescue, please complete the preliminary adoption application. If we have something for you, contact will be made as soon as we have a dog ready that might match with your request. Again, we ask for your patience. Good things are worth waiting for. Thank you for your interest in helping one of our sweet rescue dogs. If you cannot provide a loving home at this time, please consider making a donation to help pay for their care.
