Our rescue is made up of 100% volunteers. It may take a few days for one of our volunteers
to respond to your request or question. The first step is filling out an Adoption Application. The first application we receive is not chosen for who gets the adoption as we determine which home is the best match for the dog. If you do not get the dog you applied for, it is not a judgment of your home but more often due to multiple applications, sometimes the dog picks his/her family (making the choice far easier), sometimes may not be right dog for your home or situation. As the fosters know the dog best they try to determine what is going to be the best fit for the dog and not a judgment of your home/family. Every dog is an individual with different needs and it is best for all concerned to try and match the right animal to the right home. No adoption is guaranteed until foster tells you adoption is approved.
Meet & Greet
We are based in Rochester, NY, and we do our adoptions in the Rochester area.
Some dogs will require fenced in yard and some will not. If there are specific needs for the animal, they will be listed in the write-up.
We will not adopt out to anyone looking for a dog that will be left outside unattended; wants to tie out multiple dogs; would use prong collars or e-collars for training. We also require that all existing animals in home are current on vet care, including spayed or neutered unless age or medical reason prevents altering.
