Our Featured Pet...
We need Great Dane foster homes!! We have several dogs coming into rescue, would you like to help?
Please allow me to explain why we adopt to Maine and New Hampshire only! We never place a dog without doing a home visit to get to know the family and we are unable/unwilling to travel further. We track our dogs for the life of the dog, it would be too time consuming to do that if our dogs lived hundreds of miles away. Many states require us to have special (expensive) permits and licenses to work in their state and we prefer to spend our money on vet care and quality food for our rescue dogs. We are always available to help our adopters if they need it and we wouldnít be able to provide that service.
Thereís never a week that goes by that we donít receive a plea from another state. We all believe we are the best pet owners, we have the best yard, our kids are the best with dogs, etc. Our board has debated this issue several times and we always agree that we will not change our policy. Please understand that we do this for a reason and donít ask us to do it for you!
