Adopt or Foster

Thousands of wonderful companion animals, mutts and pure breeds of all ages, size and personality, are abandoned each year simply because their previous guardians were unprepared or uninformed about how to care for them.

Dog rescue groups are diligent in ensuring that all available dogs are adopted to individuals and/or families that are the best fit for each dog.  There are also breed specific rescue groups who specialize in only one breed – they are experts in their knowledge of that breed, and ensure that potential adopters are well advised of the traits and personalities of that breed prior to adoption.

If you need help in finding the dog that is perfect for your family, don’t hesitate to contact us.  We would be happy to respond to any queries and/or guide you in the right direction to help you find the dog that you are looking for.

Foster homes and families are crucial to many rescue groups. They provide a safe temporary home for dogs in need.  Foster-based rescue groups provide food, supplies, medications and veterinary care for their dogs.  Fostering is a very fulfilling and rewarding way to help save the life of an animal, as well as preparing them for their forever home.

What can I do

Dog Breeders:  Upon request, we will accompany any potential puppy buyer to any local breeder, make quiet observations, and provide honest feedback about that breeder. There is no cost for this.  We do this because we love dogs.
