P.A.R. is a volunteer dog rescue organization dedicated to rescuing German Shepherds and Labrador Retrievers in shelters where they are at high risk of euthanasia, dogs given up by their owners because of difficult circumstances, and those in danger of abuse or neglect.
We are also dedicated to teaching awareness, education, help and mentoring the public and veterinarians the skills on caring for special need dogs with Mega Esophagus.
We place dogs in loving, responsible, committed permanent homes, following a comprehensive adoption process and will continue to be a helpful resource after you have welcomed your new pet into your life...
You will first be required to complete our Adoption Application either on-line or receive one from any adoption event. Once the application is received, the application will be reviewed by a volunteer. A volunteer with Promises Animal Rescue will contact you either by phone or email for interview to answer any questions that you may have about the process. The application requires three (3) personal reference other than a relative that has been to your home or knows you and your family well. If you have a pet(s) currently or in the past a veterinarian reference is required to verify that the pets are current on vaccinations, are in good health and are spayed/neutered. To help the process move forward we ask that you contact your references to inform them that you had listed them as a reference. If you are renting the property that is listed on the application, we require proof that you are allowed to have a pet as well as any breed or size restrictions that may exist. The final step is a home visit, one of our volunteer(s) will schedule to visit your home with all family members present. The volunteer will interview all members of the household answer any questions that you may have. The volunteer(s) will also want to walk all areas of the house, back yard, walking trails, play areas that your pet would be subject to. The volunteer is there to verify your home is a safe place for one of our dogs. Upon approval of application and home visit the rescue will work with the applicant and family to find the right match for the family and their lifestyle.
