Welcome to Rescue Dog Village

RESCUE DOG VILLAGE is a collaborative of dedicated and committed rescuers  in New England and on the Gulf Coas who work tirelessly to re-home deserving dogs from high kill shelters. Our dogs are assessed by a highly seasoned and dedicated trainer who devotes his years of experience working with dogs in a variety of settings and ideal matches are made so the perfect forever homes can be found.

We rescue dogs in the south and north that have been abandoned, abused or given up by their owners.

We are a network of volunteers dedicated to finding the best possible homes for dogs in need.

We carefully select homes based on the needs of each individual dog. Our adoption process begins when a homeless dog is brought into rescue. Each dog is first provided a medical assessment and any necessary treatment including spay or neuter, heartworm, and vaccinations. We begin evaluating each dog’s personality and temperament from the moment they are welcomed into our rescue.

We assess and observe our dogs, to determine as best we can their degree of house training, crate training, leash walking skills, knowledge of commands, ability to ride in cars, general activity level and exercise needs.

From this information we are able to select the home best suited for each dog. Their behavior is evaluated to see how they interact with other animals and people. When possible, our dogs are placed in foster homes in the south and north while their medical needs are being attended to.

Rescue Dog Village is an all breed rescue that rescues dogs from a variety of locations. Collaborating with shelters in the North and South to help these dogs is what rescue is all about.

Although we are an extremely small rescue group, we understand and respect your family’s eagerness to be in touch and learn as much as you can about the dogs you are considering adopting. Our very experienced and devoted trainer will be happy to share all aspects of OUR RESCUE DOGS to determine compatibility once you’ve submitted your application, and another of our volunteers will explain the whole process of our rescue and answer any questions you might have as well.

Too many transitions make it harder on these dogs who’ve endured so much already in their precious lives, so we take great care to evaluate every aspect of their behavior and share that with potential adopters. We believe in FULL AND OPEN DISCLOSURE and adopt our dogs fully vetted and healthy. RESCUE TAKES A VILLAGE — and we are honored to work with all who share our philosophy of working together to do what we can to make a difference BECAUSE WE CAN! The animals need us more than ever now. PLEASE CONSIDER ADOPTION TODAY!

About Our Rescue

These dogs deserve all of our attention, and in Rescue Dog Village, we are committed to our adopters and our dogs equally. We offer full disclosure and hope to make the best matches possible. Please know our adoption fees never cover our expenses. We rely on the generosity of our adopters and supporters to help us help the dogs.

Our rescue is ONLY in the business of offering FULL DISCLOSURE to adopters, and expects and hopes to engage your questions and concerns fully. We owe it to the dogs we rescue and all the wonderful families/adopters who might consider welcoming our charges into their hearts and home. Our dogs are waiting for that ideal forever home where they will be cherished as deserving family members.

It’s sad these second chances are even necessary for these dogs, but we are committed to them and will devote the time and energy to their rehoming, and not just MOVE them to save more dogs. We diligently and responsibly seek good matches as we don’t want to re-home the dog again. These animals have already endured more than they should have, and through no fault of their own. It behooves us to be honest and forthright, and we appreciate the same in return from applicants. It’s that winning combination of reciprocal trust and respect that allows for successful placements to be made. Happy adopters translate to happy dogs, and that’s our goal!

Our rescue volunteers will be more than honored to be in touch with you directly and promptly, after receiving your application and conducting a mandatory a veterinarian check. If you have never owned a dog before, please submit your application regardless, and we will be in touch with you as soon as possible. TAKE NOTE YOU SHOULD CHECK YOUR SPAM AS SOME RESPONSES FROM US WIND UP THERE WE’VE DISCOVERED. Also, take care to contact your veterinarian to let them know a member of rescue will be inquiring about your pet history!

Thank you for respecting that we all donate our time to saving these animals, and understand we value your philanthropic and compassionate desire to help be part of the rescue team.

That said, you’ll understand why we are committed to the well-being of our charges and consider this veterinarian check mandatory.

If you are a first-time dog owner, we will work with you every step of the way! ADVOCACY AND EDUCATION ARE AS MUCH A PART OF RESPONSIBLE RESCUE AS ADOPTION! And it takes a RESCUE VILLAGE to help the most dogs possible in a thorough manner to ensure success on all fronts, and then some! It is an awful feeling to fail a dog, and we can’t continue rescue if we don’t do everything we can to ensure good matches for the dogs and tender families who might adopt them. THANK YOU FOR UNDERSTANDING.
