Our Mission

We provide safe homes for dogs whose owners are experiencing homelessness, domestic violence or medical emergencies. We work to make sure dogs are not left behind in dangerous situations, to keep them being surrendered to shelters and to ultimately reunite them with their people. Through a confidential network of foster homes in Western PA, HDR supports people in crisis by providing emergency boarding and veterinary treatment for their dogs.

Adoption Policy

Potential adopters need to first fill out our adoption application. HDR personnel will screen the applications to make sure they are completely filled out. We will call personal references and veterinary references listed on the adopters application. We will conduct a home visit/interview to ensure that the adopter and home will be a good fit for the dog. If the adopter has other animals, we will require a meet and greet with the animal(s) as well.
