Ugly Mutts Dog Rescue is a dog adoption and dog rehoming agency that is dedicated to saving the lives of abandoned dogs facing euthanasia in kill shelters, and supporting dog owners that are looking to rehome their pets. Ugly Mutts does not have a central location and instead all of our rescued pets are cared for in private pet-friendly homes with loving foster parents. These homes act as canine sanctuaries where the dogs are loved and cared for as our own pets until such time that they can be adopted into suitable, permanent new homes with committed adopters. Every pet placed through Ugly Mutts can be seen in the “Happy Tails” section of our website. This online scrapbook is enjoyed by many and allows previous owners and caring shelter staff to follow a specific pet’s progress as they transition into their new home and beyond.

Whether you are looking to adopt a dog or in need of a new home for a beloved pet, our experienced volunteers will ensure the best options for you and your family.

Calling our rescue Ugly Mutts is our tongue-in-cheek way of paying homage to all of the not-so-purebred, slightly over-weight, under-bitten, wonky-eared, dewclaw-missing dogs of the world.

“While rescue is our main focus, our ultimate goal is to join you in celebrating and maximizing the fun and enjoyment of owning a dog.”

"They're All Top Dogs To Us!”


If you see a dog currently listed for adoption that you think would be a good addition to your family, please visit our main website at Ugly Mutts Dog Rescue and submit an adoption application which can be found under "The Dogs" tab at the top of the page. Once your application is received and deemed to be a suitable match for the specific pet, a member of our Adoption Team will be in contact to answer any questions you may have about the pet, including the cost to adopt.

Appointments to meet a specific pet are arranged by appointment only to approved adopters.

All of our dogs have been assessed for suitability, spayed or neutered, vaccinated, flea treated, dewormed and have had an overall health check.

All they need now is a loving place to call home!

Are You In Need Of A New Loving Home For Your Pet?

With over 30 years of experience helping pet owners find loving, suitable new homes for their pets, Ugly Mutts Coordinators offer you a caring and compassionate alternative to placing your beloved pet in a pound or shelter. Ugly Mutts Dog Rescue offers your dog a loving, pet-friendly environment where they are treated like our own pet until such time that we can place them in a permanent new home, with a suitable, loving family. You will receive notification of when your pet has found its new home and will receive a picture of your dog with their new family. You will also have access to the pet's Happy Tails page and watch as they transition into their new home. This allows you as the previous owner to see that the choice you made in rehoming your pet with Ugly Mutts was the right choice for your pet.
