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.

So ring out the bells, and let the trumpets blow And beat on the drums, for now I know, I know I am loved, I am loved What a wonderful thing, what a glorious thing What a beautiful thing, to be able to say- from 'I Am Loved' by Judy Garland And you will definitely fall in love with this handsome loving goofy boy! Abel is an American Bulldog/Hound mix around 6 months old and weighing 45 lbs. He still needs to grow a bit more into those paws so he will likely be around 65-75lbs full grown and just that much more to love. Like so many dogs in the south, Abel was found trying to live on his own in the streets. He was picked up and placed in the local animal shelter and as usual they were full. Life hangs in the balance even for really good boys so he was pulled by rescue and placed in a loving foster home where Abel has shown what he is able to do. He is already crate trained and has done a fantastic job with his house training. Only 2 accidents to speak of in the beginning...not bad at all for any puppy much less a former street dog! Abel does not meet a stranger whether you have one leg or four, hairy or smooth, human, dog, or cat he loves them all. He is great with kids, just wants to play and have fun. He can be a little hesitant or shy when on leash at first but he is getting more confident every day. Abel everything you would want in a family member, friendly, sweet, playful, just all around happy go lucky. He's is an affectionate youngster who will share plenty of sweet puppy kisses which will one day be big boy kisses but kisses all the same. This darling pup loves all kinds of toys but balls and rope toys appear to be his favorites. He is also working on learning a few basic commands in his foster home so he can really impress his new family. Abel is already neutered, up to date on all vaccinations, current on preventatives, and micro chipped. He I ready, willing, and ABLE to find his forever home with people who will always be there for him. He is waiting to know he is loved...what a glorious thing, a beautiful thing to be 'Able' to say. PUPPIES GROW INTO the expectations of their families through consistent love, caring and training. Puppies cannot be adopted to homes where they are left alone 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

Good with dogs: yes Good with cats: yes Good with kids: yes Energy Level: Available for Adoption: Your application must be approved prior to meeting any dog. Silly me, Sometimes I lose my mind Like a child Has lost his way Then so soon I'll see What keeps guiding me And the reasons and traces are clear I came to love you All I can give is myself I will not try to be no body else Can I give more than my heart? - from 'I Came To Love You' by Booker T Jones Your heart will forever belong to this wonderful youngster. Booker is a very handsome 1 year old Pointer mix weighing 50 lbs. Sadly he is also another statistic of unwanted, unloved, abandoned dogs in the south who ended up in a shelter where life hangs in the balance. His calm loving demeanor got him pulled by rescue and placed in a loving foster home where he has proved what a great guy he is. Booker is already crate trained, in fact he will go in all by himself .. He hates getting in trouble so he stays on the straight and narrow. Foster mom says he is so well behaved that crating is not really needed and he has earned the trust of free run of the home. His house manners are excellent. Booker is good with other dogs and children. There are no cats in his foster home but he met several cats at a friend's house and he paid them no mind so it sounds like cats are okay with Booker. He walks very well on leash and enjoys going out for his daily adventures. Booker loves playing with toys of all kinds because they are just so doggone fun! He has on occasion become a bit too attached to a certain chew toy and was very protective of it when one of his foster siblings liked it too. Foster mom said he was easily corrected and he went to his crate on his own because he knew he was in 'trouble'. His foster mom says she keeps highly coveted toys up when she is not around to avoid sibling rivalry. Boys will sometimes be boys with their toys. A very rare occurrence and easily handled. He is a very intelligent youngster who is eager to please and quick to learn so further training will not be difficult. He has already mastered a few basic commands like sit and shake. He will happily learn more. With Booker affection is freely given and lovingly accepted by this darling boy. He loves a good cuddle on the couch when everyone is settled in for the night. Booker is already neutered, up to date on all vaccinations, current on preventatives, and micro chipped. He is looking for a wonderful person or family to give him the forever life and home he should have had from the moment he was born. He was failed by humans his first year of life so for the rest of his many years to come he deserves all the love and devotion a best friend and family member should have. You would be hard pressed to find a more lovable, loyal, easygoing boy than Booker and he will always give you his heart. If you would like to adopt Booker T, please contact kgorman2989@gmail.com

His ideal home will have a fenced-in yard so he can run around and play, but most importantly - sunbathe! Goofy could spend hours soaking in the sun. In fact, that is exactly what he will do while everyone is away at work and school! He will find the window that is letting all the sunshine in and he will lay in it until it is time for him to get up and find some bones to chew on! At the end of the day, Goofy will want nothing more than to cuddle up with you on the couch and rest for the remainder of the evening. He is so happy to be able to start his search for a home!

Breed: Pit Bull Terrier Mix Age: 9 years old Weight: 62 pounds God with Dogs: Yes Good with Kids: Yes Good with Cats: No 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.
