Adopt a dog, save a life.
Each year, approximately 2 million dogs and cats are killed in our nation's shelters. But it doesn't have to be that way. An estimated 17 million people will add a new pet to their families this year. If more of them would choose to adopt a pet, instead of buying one, we could reduce the number of animals killed in shelters significantly.
Reasons to adopt a pet:
You will save a life.
If you adopt an adult pet, there's a possibility you can avoid some of the hassles related to house-training and teething, which are associated with puppies and kittens. Of course, if you prefer a puppy or kitten, rescue groups and shelters have plenty of those available as well.
You'll save money because adoption costs less than buying an animal from a pet shop or breeder.
Perfectly "perfect" animals of all breeds, shapes, ages and sizes are available at shelters and rescue groups. Just because an animal ends up there doesn't mean there is anything wrong with them. They are just in need of a second chance.
You just might meet your best friend.
Have you previously submitted an application for a different dog within the last 60 days? There’s no need to submit another one if you were approved unless any of your other information has changed! Just send us an e-mail to let us know which dog you are interested in.
Harley's Haven Dog Rescue was created to rescue abandoned dogs, find healthy, loving, permanent homes for them and also create a more responsible world of pet ownership. Therefore we are adamant about vaccinations, regular vet care, socialization and spay/neutering as basic requirements for reducing the number of abandoned and euthanized pets on this planet. Before completing our application, please be aware that all current pets must be spayed/neutered and up-to-date on vaccines unless there is a documented medical reason from your veterinarian. The dog you are applying for MUST be kept as an inside dog (meaning not chained up and/or living outside in any capacity).
We will review all applications for each dog to make a decision about which home best suits the dog’s needs. Applications are processed in the order they are received; however other applications could be considered in determining the best situation for each dog. All applicants must be 21 or older to adopt a dog.
Completing an adoption application is not a guarantee that you will receive the dog you are applying for, and Harley’s Haven Dog Rescue reserves the right to reject any application as we see fit.
