Our Featured Pet

Gus is a Neopolitan Mastif who was 10 months old when he came into rescue. When he arrived he weighed in at 78 lbs. He has rickets from being starved and also has hip displaysia. Pet Supplies "Plus" is helping us raise money to help take care of Gus. He cannot have surgery until he is healthy, so he is slowly gaining weight in his foster home until he can have his surgery.

MISSION STATEMENT:   Adoptable dogs of all breeds deserve a loving and safe home. We are a NO KILL rescue.  We utilize foster homes to rehabilitate, socialize, and train our dogs.   We use education to dispel discriminatory myths and attitudes towards all breeds.   We provide people and pets with the tools needed to develop and maintain a rewarding relationship.   Our goal is to place as many happy, well-behaved dogs as we can into safe and loving homes.

M.A.D.R. HISTORY:  This rescue came into existence for many reasons including discrimination against certain breeds.   We started as a result of the compassion and love for "all" dogs that are adoptable.   They "ALL" deserve a good home, because every dog

Adopting a Friend  

If you wish to adopt a dog from us, the first thing you need to do is fill out an application and email it back to us. Then we will check over your application and contact your vet reference.

After that is completed we will make arrangements with you to do your home visit. At the home visit we will make sure that the you have purchased all necessary items for the dog. (Crate, metal or ceramic dishes, a raised feeder if applicable, the food the dog is eating, an ID tag, kong or nylabone, etc.)

We will also make sure your home is safe for the dog (especially important for puppies).

We will also take awhile to talk to you about your children or other pets, to make sure there is harmony in your home.

If all goes well, then you give your adoption donation and you can have the dog.

We will always be there for you as a resource to help you if you have any problems, and will contact you after the adoption to make sure all went well.


POLICIES:     An extensive temperament test is done on all rescue dogs.   Adoptions are all done through an application process.   The first step is to fill out an application.   After your references are checked a home visit is performed.  We want to make sure that we fit the right people with the right dog.

As long as the home visit is successful, and the adoptive parents have purchased all necessary dog items the adoption will take place.  There will be follow-ups in the future to make sure that the dog and the family have adjusted to each other. A good website to get more information on the different breeds is http://www.yourpurebredpuppy.com/dogbreeds/index.html

Foster Homes  

Are you a responsible dog owner?

Do you love dogs?

Are you willing to share your home?

We need foster homes.

What does that entail you ask?

Our foster dog lives with you.  Every Saturday, you drop off your foster at Pet Supplies "Plus" at 4505 South 76th Street, Greenfield we are there from 1-4. WI.

If you need a crate for your foster, we will provide it.  If your foster needs medical care we will pay for it.

You house and feed the dog.  Let him feel loved, while we search to find him/her the perfect home.

We have a list of dogs waiting to come into our rescue and not enough homes for them.  All these dogs are on death row.  Many come from puppy mills.

If you saw the news about G. Schultz you saw what kind of horrible conditions we are talking about.

We only have so much time, becfore they are euthanized.  You might think it would be too hard to take in a dog and then give it up, but I tell you that what is too hard is to sit and watch these dogs and puppies (some only 5 weeks old), die.

Can you PLEASE HELP us?!!
