Adopting A Friend

Arctic Spirit Rescue adopts northern breed dogs to adopters within the Greater Philadelphia region, which includes portions of the following states:

  • Pennsylvania
  • Delaware
  • New Jersey
  • Portions of Maryland


If you are outside of these areas we encourage you to search for groups or shelters closer to where you live.  Any rescue is a good rescue!  

We do not have a kennel facility. All of our dogs are lovingly fostered in private homes in typical family environments for a minimum of two weeks before they are available for adoption. This enables us to get to know our guests which allows us to learn the type of home he/she will thrive in. Our adoption fee is $240. Our dogs are examined by one of the local vets affiliated with our rescue and are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, checked for Heartworm and Lyme Disease, and receive a clean bill of health before they are made available for adoption. Any health or behavioral issues that we are aware of are then shared with potential adopters, so you know as much about them as possible. We want to ensure your new family member fits in well with your family and lifestyle so we take our time to ensure our beautiful guests get the very best “second” start we can give them!

Please visit our website (www.arcticspiritrescue.org) to see our adoption page for more details about our adoption procedure as well as our adoption application.




Who We Are

We are a small group of people with a large amount of dog rescue experience, who came together with a big dream. We share our love of dogs and other animals, and our admiration (dare we say addiction) for North American arctic breed dogs.

We know there is a need for a professional, ethical and team driven organization to rescue and re-home these animals, and there is as much need to educate the public, and support all the lives touched in the rescue process –regardless of the number of legs.

We see so many opportunities to make a difference in the world of animals and humans, and we know we can’t be experts at everything, so our approach is to seek out those with different gifts to offer to share our mission. Only by combining the various talents of many will we achieve our goals.

We welcome you and hope you share our spirit!
