They Deserve Better Dog Rescue

For the past fourteen years volunteers of They Deserve Better Dog Rescue have dedicated their time and money to saving and bettering the lives of mistreated and neglected and/or unwanted dogs. To date, They Deserve Better have rescued and rehomed over 2800 dogs. Referrals come from various sources and there are sometimes fees involved in order to remove the dog from potentially harmful environments. Private vehicles are used to transport these dogs from puppy mills, kill shelters, and unsafe environments, to private homes where they are housed and nurtured until they can be matched with the human that will provide them their furever home.

Adoption Process
Perspective adopters must complete an application. Applications are screened, references checked, and we attempt to find the best match for each dog. We ask that spay/neuter fees, immunization fees, and microchip and any initial acquisition fees be paid by adopter. An adoption contract and if applicable, a spay/ neuter contract must be signed.

Look for other dogs for adoption!
