Dog Adoption

Update:  Rural Dog Rescue's adoption events are cancelled until the COVID-19 crisis is over.  Please join them on Saturdays for a virtual adoption event!  More information can be found on their website or facebook page

Rescue is a huge passion of ours. Every weekend there are homeless dogs here waiting to find their forever home.


Rural Dog Rescue is committed to saving the lives of dogs most overlooked in high kill rural shelters.  This group of Underdogs includes the hounds, black dogs, the seniors, the sick and the broken....


VOLUNTEERS NEEDED: Volunteers are always needed on Saturdays to hold and walk dogs and talk to prospective adoptors! Transport volunteers are often needed to drive dogs to and from events.


FOSTERS NEEDED: Did you know a single foster can help save 12-26 pets a year? Rural Dog Rescue has full time, overnight, weekend and holiday foster needs! Please visit our website to find out more about how you can help save the life of a dog or cat in a high kill shelter!
