and saves lives. or and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.

Do a home check. Before finalizing the adoption, bring the dog to the potential adopter's home so you can check out their fence, introduce the dog to other pets and kids, and see for yourself if you like the home. Just say, "I want to be sure the dog gets along with your other dogs" or "I want to be sure he can't get out of your fence" rather than making it sound like "I am coming to check you out!" (even though you are).

If someone does not want you to come to their house, that is probably a bad sign. (Like the hoarder who didn't want me to come to her house, but I said I had to let the cat meet her dog on his territory. This house was straight off the tv show. Turns out she wanted a cat to .) Responsible people will understand your need to find the right home for the dog and will welcome you and the dog to their home for a visit.

Tiny Paws Small Dog Rescue was born out of my love for small dogs and desire to help those in need, and in memory of the loss of a dear family member. Dealing frequently with small breed puppies and retired breeder moms, we strive to find homes that are aware of the commitment to raising a small breed dog and to the patience needed in socializing and housebreaking a retired breeder mom who may have little idea what life in a home is all about. We are foster home based and are always looking for new foster homes to help us continue our love of rescuing dogs in need. We are happy to assist in owner surrender placements, especially those in need of surrendering their small dogs due to financial hardships, loss of a loved one, or dog owner entering assisted living facilities or nursing homes. We pride ourselves with a thorough search for that perfect home for a dog in need and follow up with phone calls to ensure things are going well. Tiny Paws will take back an adopted dog should the need arise within a reasonable notice and an available foster home has an open spot. Our goal is to someday own a building to house even more canine companions in need. We look forward to helping you find your family pet. Dogs are truly man’s best friend. These loyal pets not only make great companions, they become a valuable part of your family. Unfortunately, far too many dogs throughout Georgia are neglected, abused and abandoned. To help make a difference, Pregnant Dog Rescue was created to help find loving homes for these wonderful animals. We are a not-for-profit organization made up caring people who want to make a difference. We are committed to saving pregnant dogs, whelped litters and orphan pups that are destined for euthanasia. Since June 2010, we’ve helped save more than 1,200 dogs.Before this, enormous numbers of animals who went into shelters never came out. More than 40 years ago, an average of 20 million dogs and cats were euthanized annually. Humane organizations started a campaign to spay and neuter pets, especially those coming through shelters, and today —still terrible, but a vast improvement. In addition to pet sterilization, an effort also began to find accommodations for homeless animals outside the municipal and private shelter systems, which have limited room and often short deadlines for keeping animals before moving them to death row. The new organizations take potentially adoptable pets out of the shelters and foster them, usually in private homes, until the right owner comes along. They control the fate of an increasing number of animals. In New York City, for example, almost 45 percent of the dogs and cats that come into are passed to one of more than 150 private rescue groups.Thinking about adopting a new family member? Rescue Dogs Rock, Inc., rescues puppies and dogs from high kill shelters, owner surrenders, puppy mill throw aways and medically neglected and suffering dogs and give them the proper medical care, then we do our best to find them the perfect home. We are deeply committed to healing the physical and emotional wounds these animals have suffered.
