Our Rescue is a licensed shelter in the state of Maine and holds a current importation permit. Our Rescue utilizes a private home foster- based system of caring for our dogs. Dogs are fostered local to where they are rescued from and that can be anywhere in our nation. This system works well. It ensures that each animal taken in can quickly get the care it needs. Once a dog has gotten all the care it needs to enter the state of Maine, transportation will be arranged. Dogs also may be adopted locally to where they were rescued from.
Our adoption process is a simple one. It all starts with an adoption application which includes basic information such as a vet reference, home demographics, and a few personal references. Our rescue is very much a one on one matching process. We match up the dog to the family. Once your application is complete give us up to 14 days to check it out. We will contact you with the results. Once an application has been approved we move onto a home visit which may or may not include you meeting your potential new family member. Once this is complete and approved we will go over with you our adoption contract and then bring your new family member to you! We have found this way of doing things works best to reduce the chances of the adoption not working out. In all of our experience doing it this way we have only had 1 dog returned. Our rescue stands behind our adoptions all the way!
