We are changing and rearranging. Soon to have more space and more abilities to help the general public with education and our dogs with a more productive life! YAY! Stay tuned!
Who We Are
WPDR, Inc is a very small, fairly quiet rescue group doing our part a little bit at a time. We realize we cannot save the world, but we can save our little part of it and make a few lives better with time, patience and an unbiased look at what steps are needed to make that happen. Bringing lives together ... one step at a time.
Adopting a friend
All of our adoptions require references and a careful screening is done to make sure the dog you would like to adopt would fit your lifestyle. While many people may WANT a cattle dog, for instance, they may not be suited for your lifestyle. This means that in a few short weeks you will be parting ways and the dog will once again be homeless. Adopting a dog is a commitment that is life-long for the dog. If you consider a dog one of the first things to go when you need to make a family decision or a move, PLEASE do not contact us. Our dogs are considered members of the family with rights and feelings. No dog or other animal should be cast aside in the name of convenience. Please review and research the breed you are considering prior to adoption to make sure the breed is suitable to your lifestyle and activity levels. If you are interested in any of our dogs, please e-mail for a questionaire. This will begin the process.
Come Visit Us!
While we would love to have company, our dogs are in foster homes. We are not a shelter. Our foster homes range from NY to VA and some even further. While our home base, so to speak, is in NY, many of our dogs are fostered elsewhere. Please be aware that part of the adoption process is to visit your potential family member in his foster home. Each listing tells where the dog is being fostered. Even if you cannot travel there, do not hesitate to contact us about a dog you are interested in. There may be another member closer to you who can do a home check and help determine if the choice is the right one!
