About Us

Who We Are


   The Joshua Fund is a 501c3 Registered Non-Profit Organization dedicated to saving the lives of dogs. We are located in Lake Placid, NY and rescue dogs from high kill shelters all over the US. Once we commit to a certain dog or puppy, the canine is removed from the shelter and taken to the Veterinarian. There is a 21 day quarantine period for all dogs/puppies. During that time, the dog or puppy is tested for Heart Worm disease (if age appropriate) and any tick-borne diseases. The dog or puppy is treated for fleas/ticks if appropriate and then receives Vaccinations: Distemper, Parvo, Rabies, Bordatella and Lyme (if available.)

   Any medications for other detected problems are given for the prescribed period. The dog or puppy is also spayed/neutered and microchipped. If a dog tests positive for Heart Worm disease, we will board him/her for the full 60 days until their treatment is complete and they are deemed Heart Worm Negative status. At the end of the quarantine period, a health certificate is issued and we arrange for professional transportation to our location. 

   Our adoption applicants are checked thoroughly for references and a home visit is arranged. If accepted, we bring the dog or puppy to the new family to see how they interact. Our adoption fee is $300 for dogs and $350 for puppies 6 months or younger.

You need to fill out an adoption application before we can discuss any of our adoptable puppies or dogs. After we receive it, our Adoption Counselor reviews your answers and checks your references. She will then contact you to discuss the dog or puppy you'd like to adopt or any of our other adoptable puppies/dogs who might be the perfect fit for your family.
