Who We Are

Short N Sweet Dog rescue takes in dogs that are homeless. All dogs taken in are spayed, neutered & given vaccines, and any medical attention they need. We then strive to match them up with caring families that will love them for their entire natural lives. All Dogs are Spayed or Neutered! We discourage casual breeding of dogs...even purebred dogs! (if you want to know why, go to and browse through the thousands of homeless dogs needing a place to live!) We are a member of the Rescue Alliance of Hairless & Other Dogs which is a nonprofit, 501(c)3 rescue organization.

Adopting a friend

Although, our desire is to place as many dogs as possible, all homes must be qualified to take care of the dogs they adopt. For this reason, all homes are screened. There are a few quidelines that almost all rescue groups go by to determine if an individual is a good candidate for adoption. By coming to a dog rescue site you have already passed the first qualification! You CARE about saving a dog that needs you! But, caring isn't enough. You must have a home that is "dog friendly". Ask yourself the following: Is there anything in my home that could harm a dog? Exposed electrical cords? Poisonous houseplants? Household chemicals on open low shelves? Other pets that are agressive? Young children that don't understand to be "gentle"? Do you have a securely fenced yard? If not, are you willing to walk the dog on a leash several times every day? You might also check your home to see if a dog can hurt your home! All dogs occasionally have "accidents" even well trained dogs. Can you deal with this? Many dogs (especially younger dogs) chew belongings, or scratch at couches. Most dogs shed leaving dog hair on your furnature & carpets & clothes....are you ok with this? All dogs bark, whine & howl on occasion. Can you deal with this? Can your neighbors? And lastly, you must have the TIME for a dog! Dogs are like perpetual children. They need Love, Disciplene, Love, Exercise, Love, Training, Love, medical care and more Love!
