Thank you for choosing to ADOPT a rescued dog, they truly are the best breed! Our mission is to place homeless and abandoned dogs into suitable, permanent, and loving homes. As a non-profit rescue, we do our best to provide healthy, well-socialized, and nurtured pets. We evaluate with temperament testing and every dog receives a medical exam by one of our partner rescue vets to determine overall health and needs for vetting and care. We also quarantine dogs to ensure they are healthy prior to placement in a foster or permanent home. Before placement, every dog is spayed/neutered, up-to-date with age-appropriate vaccinations, de-wormed, and given a health exam by a veterinarian.
The first step in the adoption process is completing the online application. Once we receive your application, we will begin reviewing and verifying your information. A virtual home visit will be conducted as part of the review. If a 'meet and greet' is needed it will be scheduled during the application review process. We work diligently to find the best homes for our dogs. The process will usually take a few days to complete. Depending on several factors, puppy adoptions can take longer depending on age, we don't like to let puppies leave the rescue until they are a least 10 weeks old and fully vaccinated and spay/neutered.
Donations help RDRNE to help other dogs in need. The adoption donation includes vet examination, spay/neuter, age-appropriate vaccines, a lifetime registered microchip, and helps offset the cost of transporting the dogs into our location in Thompson PA from locations in the south.
Adopting a dog is a big responsibility. Please think long and hard about the time and expense of pet ownership and be certain the whole family is on board.
