Dogs for Adoption

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 partners in Mississippi. To see all of our available dogs visit our pets on Petfinder or AdoptAPet.

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.

Adoption Process

If you are interested in one of our great dogs, please fill out an adoption application. 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 check, home visit.

All dogs are spayed/neutered, fully vetted, and on heartworm preventative as well as a flea & tick preventative.

Please Note:

It is illegal in the states of Maine, New Hampshire & Massachusetts for any dog or puppy to get off any transport go directly to the adopting family.

All dogs are quarantined in foster care prior to going to their forever homes.

PPR will contact adopters

as soon as dogs arrive in Maine. Dogs/puppies can be picked up after they have been quarantine for the appropriate amount of time (ME: 48 hours over 6 months old, 5 days under 6 months old. NH: 48 hours.)
