Dog Rescue Shelters

Are you looking for dog rescue shelters? Dog rescue centers are a great way to add a furry friend to your family. If you are interested in a pet dog I encourage you to consider adoption from a rescue or shelter. You will not regret it if you adopt from a reputable, established rescue.

I am sure that’s why you are at this page and I want to assure you that rescuing a dog is a great idea. When you rescue a dog you are likely to get a more mature dog that will have some training and the initial veterinary care. And when you go through a rescue it will make sure that the dogs personality is a good match for your home.

Dog Rescue Shelters and Other Resources

If you are looking for a puppy or dog it is a good idea to consider a rescue. I have sorted the breeds by their breed group. This way you can focus on a certain kind of dog when searching for a rescue.

Of course, you should also consider a mutt. There is nothing wrong with a mixed breed. In fact, they are usually healthy and have a great personality.

If you are looking for a shelter, SPCA or Humane Society in a certain geographic area check out the Animal Rescue Shelters page.
