Who We Are

Rover Starts Over Dog Adoptions rescues dogs from canine control, local dog officers, and private surrenders. We are NO KILL and all volunteer. We use foster homes and private kennel shelters.

Adopting a Friend

The adoption process begins with an application. Please email to request an application. Once you are reviewed and approved, applicants are put in touch with the foster homes to meet the dog. The foster home then takes the applicant through the rest of the adoption process. We are non-profit, but require an adoption fee to cover the cost of shots, worming and spay/neuter vet services given to the dogs we place. For puppies under 6 months of age, an additional $50 deposit is required at the time of selection and refunded when the dog is spay/neutered by 6 months of age.

Donations- We gratefully accept any help we receive. All donations go 100% to pay for food, crates, shelter costs and vet care. Please send your donations to P.O. Box 113, Granby MA 01033 and THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! We acknowledge all donations. Volunteering- WE NEED FOSTER HOMES!!!! The only way we can rescue dogs is to have a home or shelter for them to live while waiting for a home. CAN YOU HELP??? Caring for a foster dog is a great way to be a volunteer and to give of yourself. The rewards are great, the effort small. We pay for all food, crates, medical and any other related expenses. Call or email us for an application to foster.

Surrender Information

Rover Starts Over can help you if you can no longer care for your dog. There are many reasons why a dog may have to be given up or an unwanted litter of puppies is born and we understand. Please contact us if you are in this situation and we can help.

Come Visit Us!

We operate on foster care and private kennel shelters which we believe is much better for the dog to be socialized and used to family life before adoption. Foster care allows the dog to interact with people and other pets and they are so much happier! We only kennel dogs when no foster home is available. Our foster homes are located throughout the greater Springfield/ Northampton MA area and are friendly comfortable places to meet our wonderful dogs for adoption. Most are easily reached from Rt 91 or the MA Turnpike.
