The Good Dog Rescue, LLC
Our purpose is to save dogs from high kill shelters and place them into foster homes with our volunteers. Prior to adoption our dogs will be vetted, spayed or neutered, and given the chance to adjust to a home environment.
The Good dog Rescue is so happy that you have chosen us to find your new best friend. We could not be more excited to see our dogs find great, loving homes and we know that wouldn’t be possible without you!
Adoption Events are currently cancelled due to COVID-19.
We are still adopting dogs out though so if you see one that you are interested in, fill out an application below and we will get back to you on how our process is working now.
HOW TO ADOPT
Thank you for looking to adopt your next animal companion through The Good Dog Rescue! By choosing to adopt, you will save a life and be rewarded with an incredible addition to your family. All of the dogs in our rescue are housed in foster homes and are cared for by loving volunteer foster families. If you are interested in meeting a specific animal, please fill out an application and our Adoption Team will contact you.
Adoption is a serious, lifelong commitment. Please make sure that all of the people and animals (and landlords) in your household are on-board with your decision to adopt an animal. Also be prepared to train and work with the animal throughout the duration of the animal’s life. Adopting a new dog is incredibly rewarding but also requires patience, love, positive reinforcement training, and commitment.We ask our adopters to be serious about this decision before filling out an application or moving forward with adoption.
Also, recognize that there is a transition period for any animal entering your home. It will not always be easy. Be prepared for the animal to “test” you, as a child does. Your new pet might misbehave; he’ll look for your consistency to show him how to act in your home. It’s up to you to use positive reinforcement training strategies to show him how to be a part of your family.
Adoption fees include spay/neuter, vaccinations, heartworm test (where applicable), and microchipping.

Attend our next adoption event. Make sure you bring proof of ownership or a copy of your lease. If you are adopting an adult dog and currently have a dog(s), please plan to bring them along for a meet-and-greet.
At the event there will be time for animal visitation as well as a short interview with one of our volunteers. We will bring in people in the order that they arrived at the adoption event.
If we feel that the dog is a good fit for your family, we will move forward with the adoption.
At the time of adoption, the adopter will be given the dogs medical records, any information we have on them, and a small baggie of the food they are eating. An agreement will be signed transferring the ownership of the animal, and the fee will be paid
The adopter can then take home their new family member!
