Hard Knocks Rescue and Training, Inc.

Huntsville, AL

Our Mission

With our individualized, respect-based training and decompression program, we will ensure more dogs find and keep loving homes. We will assist local shelters and rescues in rehabilitating abuses and neglected dogs who are considered “unadoptable” due to anxiety triggered behavioral issues. We will provide training and resources for the entire community to promote safer interactions between dogs, their canine companions, and humans. In doing so, we will help reduce the number of dogs euthanized due to fear-based reactivity.

Adoption Policy

Adoption process:

Interested, potential adopters will need to complete and submit an adoption application. Upon approval of the preliminary screening, HKRTinc will make an appointment for a meet and greet. A home visit and official adoption contract is required to complete an adoption.

Our adoption fees are $150 for adults or dogs 1 year of age or older and $300 for puppies under 1year of age. The fee includes 3 training sessions in their new home, alteration, microchip, county license and all dogs are current on vaccinations and preventatives, administered/dispensed by a licensed veterinarian. Training is on-going and pertinent to each individual dog, while with HKRTinc. Most of our adoptable dogs will be basic obedience trained, at minimum. These are our standard adoption fees, but on occasion, they are waived or reduced. Veterinarian care remains the same in all instances.

Should the adopter decide they are not a good fit for the dog, adopters have 30 days to return the dog, in the same condition, to receive a full return. If at any given time the adopters want to rehome, they are required to return the dog over to HKRT, even if it is past the 30 day trial period.
