Our Current Adoptable Pet List

Our adoption fees are based on the age, size, health and temperament of the dog and can range from $150.00 - $750.00 A fellow rescue group wrote the following which sums it up for all rescue groups: Recently someone asked, "Why would you charge $500 for a rescue pet? Why not just place it in a good home?" The answer is because we need adopters who are willing to support all rescue pets, not just the dog they adopt. A young, healthy dog might cost us $150-400 in vet care, and many people will want to adopt it. An older one with health issues can easily cost $500-1500 in veterinary expenses, and it may require months of foster care for rehabilitation; yet we can only ask a minimal adoption fee, and it may be a long time until anyone comes forward to adopt it. Fees from the younger, more adoptable dogs help offset the cost of caring for the others. Most of our dogs have a sad story to tell, and some have suffered through years of neglect or abuse. We hope that you too are willing to give an opportunity for a better life to ALL of our dogs by supporting them through adoption fees. Without these funds, our rescue efforts would not be possible."
We continue to need your ongoing financial support for day-to-day expenses...between utility bills, housing costs, and the Veterinary care of these animals, we can use any help you can offer. There are always more dogs, cats, and other animals waiting to be put into the system, but we just don't have the resources to take care of them all without you. Can you join us in this work? Financial donations can be made through the link to Paypal below, or mailed to us at PO Box 71, Denver, PA 17517. Thank you very much for any help you can offer...no gift is too small or too large, and all the gifts help save lives!

Have you made a donation to "The Rubix Fund" yet? It's a way to help really needy dogs. This is Rubix...at the time of the picture (and his surgery), he was a 12 week old English Bulldog that was born with a cleft palate. In the past, he would have been destroyed rather than have the necessary surgery to let him live. He was surrendered to us, and now is rehabilitating in his new "forever home" from the repair to his cleft palate that will grant him many happy years to come. And he's not the first...there was "Lizzy", a dog that was injured in an automobile accident, then surrendered when her owner could not afford the hip surgery that would allow her to live life to the fullest again. And there are more dogs (and other animals) like them that need very expensive surgery to have a full life. That's why Rubix, Lizzy and the others asked us to start this fund, to help more animals get the care they need. We know that asking for the full cost of the surgery in an adoption fee would make their adoption very difficult. So "The Rubix Fund" monies will only go to pay for surgery for special needs dogs.
