Rescuing a dog can be such a rewarding experience. These amazing dogs just want a home and someone to love. In return they will give you lots of joy and definitely a few laughs. All of our available dogs are located either in foster homes in Maine or with our Southern and Mid-Western partners.
We have so many great dogs from which to choose. Sometimes it will happen when you look online, other times when you come by one of our events. But when you meet, you'll know it's meant to be. And you'll wonder why this sweet dog was homeless and how you got so lucky.
We do screen on a first-come, first-serve basis, but if you are second or even fifth, it is always possible you could be the best fit for the dog.
Passion for Pets Rescue(PPR) is committed to finding the best "doggie" fit for you and your lifestyle so all have many happy years together. Our adoption process includes the completion of an application form, phone interview, veterinary and personal reference checks, and home or virtual visit. Please read our application guidelines. Please, only one application per household.
We rely heavily on volunteers. Most folks have skills that they don't realize can help.
All fees can be paid as a PayPal 'guest' with a debit or credit card.
It is illegal in the states of Maine, New Hampshire & Massachusetts for any dog or puppy to get off a transport and go directly to the adopting family. All dogs are fostered for at least 48 hours or five days, depending on age, prior to going to their forever homes.
All dogs are spayed/neutered, fully vetted, and on heart worm preventative as well as a flea & tick preventative.
