ADOPT

Adopt a Double Dog Today!

Please fill out a Double Dog Rescue application and email it to the DDR volunteer in that dog’s petfinder bio. Be sure to contact your veterinarian and give us permission to do a vet reference check to expedite the process. Most vets require your approval. If you are interested in a general pre approval to adopt from our organization, send your application to preappddr@gmail.com. Home visits are also part of the initial process. Keep in mind that several people may have put an application in for the same dog. When this happens, an adopter is picked based on that particular dog’s temperament, personality, and how that matches with your family’s lifestyle

Our adoption fee is $485. Due to rising costs, our fee has been slightly raised in order to cover the cost of both vetting and transporting our dogs. We use professional transports to ensure the safety of all of our dogs. You will receive the vet records at the transportation pick-up. Remember, your adoption fee is tax-deductible at the end of the year.  Click here to download our application.

Adopting to Families With Children

We have a very specific contract that is tailored for families with children. If you have children under the age of ten who live with you and/or visit, you will be asked to submit this contract before you can be approved to adopt. As the adult(s) in the home it is your full responsibility to educate your child(ren) on the proper way to interact with your dog, and vice versa. We want your guarantee that you will introduce and educate your children (and their friends as well) as to how to properly and safely interact with your dog, creating respect and boundaries for both. Children and dogs should never be left together unattended. It only takes a moment for a dog to get accidentally hurt or startled and for that dog to react. We encourage you to watch this video with your entire family before you consider adopting.

Breed: Pit Bull Terrier/Lab/Terrier mix Age: 5-6 Weight: 45 pounds God with Dogs: Yes Good with Kids: Yes Good with Cats: Yes Energy Level: Medium Celia is an exceptionally sweet and docile girl, she is a bit shy at first but warms up quickly. Celia was found wandering as a stray and ended up in a high kill shelter, she was very frightened and spent most of her time huddled in the back of her kennel, so her chances were slim for adoption. The volunteers loved Celia though and pushed for her rescue as they all knew what a sweet girl she was! Celia is well behaved, she has good house manners and clearly was at some point part of a family as she was already spayed, walks beautifully on a leash. She also knows basic commands such as 'Sit' and will politely offer her paw for a 'Shake' when asked. Celia rides well in the car and does well with everyone she meets. She is very smart and eager to please as well. This little gem will be an amazing addition to some very lucky family. 🙂 If interested in Celia, please contact Summer at: summer.doubledogrescue@gmail.com

Larry is looking for a lifetime commitment in a home with a family who will cherish him and partner him in endless adventures whether curled up on the couch or scouting the neighborhood or exploring the wonders of the beach. A family in essence who will consider each day special because there is someone special to share it with. PUPPIES GROW INTO the expectations of their families through consistent love, caring and training. Puppies cannot be adopted to homes where they are left unattended for more than 3-4 hours. Families with children must have established boundaries for both the puppy and the children. PLEASE REMEMBER: The specific breed of any dog abandoned to a shelter or rescue is only the best informed determination of rescue in agreement with our veterinarians. CONTACT Sharon: ddogresq@aol.com

Breed: Pit Bull Terrier Mix Age: 9 Weight: 62 pounds God with Dogs: Yes Good with Kids: Yes Good with Cats: Unknown Energy Level: Medium Sabir is a sweet senior boy with a lot of life yet to live! Often among the saddest things we see in rescue are the older dogs who are abandoned by their owners. Poor Sabir was relinquished to a high kill shelter at nine years old because his family could no longer keep him. Sabir was very confused and of course depressed to find himself in a loud shelter with many other dogs in an unfamiliar environment, far from anything he had known before. This sweet boy also has some major dental issues from years of neglect that have left him not feeling up to par. We are in the process of addressing his needs, all of which will be completed prior to adoption. Sabir is an energetic senior, he does well with other dogs that are not aggressive or overly dominant with him, he rides well in the car, and loves to play fetch. He knows how to 'Sit' and take treats very politely. We are seeking a loving family that will dote on this sweet boy and include him in activities, making him a part of the family and showing him the kind of love he so deserves.
