At Furever Home Dog Rescue, we thank you for considering the adoption of a rescue dog. We understand that you may have other rescue groups to choose from and that is good news for everyone.
Why? This year alone, approximately 7 million pets will die in shelters across the US. The more rescue groups finding forever homes for these pups, collectively we can reduce that number of unnecessary deaths significantly.
WHY CHOOSE FUREVER HOME DOG RESCUE - There are some subtle differences about Furever Home Dog Rescue that we believe benefits our adopters in so many ways:
1. Our pups are temperament tested by the shelters and fully vetted by licensed veterinarians prior to being considered for Furever Home Dog Rescue.
2. All of our pups are placed in foster homes prior to adoption where our fosters provide further evaluation and house training on our pups.
3. Our adopters meet with the foster family and gain valuable insight into the pups behavior toward training, food, interaction with children, dogs, cats, and other very important intangibles.
4. We believe this process further benefits our adopters since we match families and pups based on this valuable insight.
We are an all-volunteer group located in New Jersey dedicated to finding furever homes for all of our rescue dogs. Our dogs and puppies come from over populated, high kill shelters: Lenoir County SPCA shelter in North Carolina, I Love My Island Dog shelter in St Maarten, Anguila Animal Rescue Foundation in Anguila, SXM Rescue in St Maarten, Save a Sato in Puerto Rico, Cayman Human Society in Cayman and SEAWF in St Eustatius.
We have been working with these shelters for a long time and have established a wonderful relationship with the volunteers and local veterinarians. These shelters unfortunately are over populated with puppies and dogs for many reasons: affordability, unplanned litters, moving away, strays, etc. The shelters only has so much space and resources to care for these dogs, and as a result they need rescue groups like Furever Home Dog Rescue along with adopters like you to help find wonderful homes for these pups.
Each week, Furever Home Dog Rescue previews the available pups at the shelters with our foster families. The selected pups are brought to the vet for age appropriate vetting and to get a Certificate of Health. Once medically cleared, they are carefully transport from the shelters to Furever Home Dog Rescue in New Jersey. The pups from NC are transported using a driving caravan of volunteers from North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, Delaware and New Jersey. From the islands, the pups are transported by residents and visitors to the islands who volunteer to escort them on the airplane on their way to the States.
Once the pups arrive in NJ, they live in their foster homes along with children and other pets. This allows us to get a sense of the pups personalities and needs, so we can place them with their furever families.
Prior to adoption, all pups receive age appropriated vetting and vaccinations, they are dewormed and receive flea and tick preventatives. Pups older than 6 months are spay/neutered and pups over 1 year also get tested for HW, Lyme and E-Cannis. Puppies under 6 months are adopted with a spay/neuter agreement that the adopters are responsible to have done at 6 months.

FOSTER HOMES ARE ALWAYS WELCOME - Because we do not have a local shelter, we depend on our foster families. We are always looking for more people who are willing to open their homes to foster a pup on a temporary basis until they are adopted to their furever homes. Fostering is a rewarding experience and you will be helping save a dogs life. There are puppies, young dogs & older dogs of different breeds that need foster homes.
Please consider helping these wonderful dogs get a second chance. With your help, we can save more dogs from being destroyed simply because there is a lack of space at the shelter. If you would like to be a part of our rescue efforts and are interested in short term fostering, please email Camille at FHDR@att.net.
ADOPTING A FRIEND - If you see a pup that you are interested in adopting, please email us at FHDR@att.net and ask for an adoption application. All applicants must be at least 24 years old AND they must be the head of household. Renters are welcome as long as dogs are allowed by their landlords. Please note submitting an application does not guarantee adoption. The adoption process consists of your completion of an adoption application, our review of the application and contacting relevant references & verifying the application information. The adoption process can take anywhere from 1 to 3 weeks upon receipt of your application. If your application meets our initial requirements, we will contact you to discuss the dog and arrange a home visit. Please note that our further due diligence will determine if your family is awarded the pup. We understand you are excited to meet our pups, but because we do not have a physical shelter and all our pups are in foster homes, we need to limit pet visitation to Approved Applicants only. If your application is completed and approved by FHDR, we will be happy to schedule your visit. We expect all members of the family to be at the meet and greet. Adopting a pet is a lifelong commitment. When bringing a new pet into your family, everyone in the family should have a chance to spend time with the dog before adopting. And everyone needs to agree that it's a good idea.When you meet the pup, FHDR will make a determination if it's a match. If it's a match, you are welcome to adopt the pup at that time. You are never obligated to adopt the pup. Please note, FHDR reserves the right to refuse an adoption to anyone for any reason.
