Adopting from a Breed Rescue Group

Purebred rescue groups are usually run by
people with in-depth knowledge of a specific
breed. Rescue groups keep adoptable
animals until they can be placed in loving,
permanent homes.

These animals may come from failed
breeding operations; arrive from boarding
kennels and veterinarians, where they were
abandoned; be rescued as strays living on
the streets; or be obtained through the
cooperation of local animal shelters.
Adoption fees vary, depending on veterinary
and other costs that have been incurred.
Follow-up counseling is usually available.

When you contact a breed rescue group, be
sure to find out as much as you can about
the group, how it cares for its animals, how it
decides which animals are adoptable, and
what other adoption and post-adoption
services are available.

Breed rescue groups are dedicated dog lovers of a specific breed who maintain a network of temporary foster homes.
When a dog is turned over to them, (s)he is placed into a foster home for an evaluation period. The foster family provides
health care and basic training while the rescue group searches for the right permanent home.
