Meet Our Adoptable Dogs

THANK YOU for choosing to save a rescue dog and for considering adoption! We have many wonderful dogs that are currently ready for adoption and we hope that you will find the perfect one that fits into your home, family and lifestyle! Rescue dogs are special because they are perhaps just a little more greatful for the second chance they have at life and they will reward you with a lifetime of unconditional love and happiness.

 

When we place our rescues we do our best to ensure that you are being matched with the dog that you feel will fit perfectly into your home and family. It is also important for everyone, including your future new best friend, that we are making sure that your home is the perfect fit for the needs of that particular dog, as well. 

 

Please keep in mind that we often receive many applications for any one single dog and it is not always possible for us to return a personal call to every person that applies for one of our dogs. We go through a process of reviewing each application and once we feel we have found the right applicant, we conduct a background check on anyone we feel would be the right fit for that dog. Once this process is completed we will contact the family to set up a time for a meet and greet with the dog. It's important that all of the members of your family, (including other dogs) meet the new dog so that everyone is onboard and in agreement that this is the right choice for you.

 

* We are an organization made up soley of volunteers so we ask that you please be patient while we go through the application review process.

 

All adoption donations are non-refundable.

 

  • Applicants must be at least 18 years old.
  • All dogs (adopted or in foster care) belong inside the home and interacting with your family. We will not tolerate a dog being chained outside.
  • We require all dogs to be fully vetted and spayed/neutered prior to being adopted. Dogs may go to foster-to-adopt homes while waiting to be vetted.
  • Fenced yards are a preference, but not a requirement. You must have a plan in place for exercise and potty needs of the dog.
  • Besides filling out the application completely, we will conduct a home visit and family interview with anyone interested in adopting or fostering one of our dogs.
  • We require all animal records of any animal in the house prior to placing the animal in your home. Vet references and personal references are also a requirement.
  • If you adopt and it is not a good fit for your family or the dog, we require the dog to be returned to Rescue A Dog, Inc.
  • We only adopt in the Tampa Bay Area (Pinellas, Pasco, Hernando, Citrus, Hillsborough counties)

**Sometimes other websites might grab and post adoptable dogs from our website but they don't always update them once our dogs have found their forever homes. As a result, we often get inquiries for dogs that have already been adopted. We are sorry but only the dogs listed here on our website are available for adoption.

Mia

Female

UTD on Vaccines

 

 

Mia came to us from Pasco county animal services with her 4 little baby puppies.  The pups are all weaned and mom is now spayed and ready for her forever home.  She is a little timid when you first meet her but after only 10 mins she's sitting on your lap and wanting pets and ear scratches. She gets along with everyone and she loves to be cuddled.If you would like to do a meet and greet with her, please fill out an application under the adoption application tab. We will call you to arrange a time for a meet and greet. Thank you for choosing to adopt.  We adopt only in the Tampa Bay area and not to states outside of Florida.
 
 

 

 
 

Noelle

Female

Spayed

UTD on Vaccines

 

 

It's time for Noelle to find her Forever Home!!! She is a very special and beautiful 4 yr old terrier/pit mix who came to us from County Services with a severe foot injury we tried everything we could to rehab. But after multiple attempts and surgeries, the vets decided amputation would give her the best quality of life. Her back right leg has now been amputated and is completely healed with no special treatment or medication needed. Whoever is lucky enough to get to adopt her and make her part of their family will be rewarded with the most loyal and best friend you could ever hope for!

Noelle is a VERY sweet and gentle girl. She knows basic commands and LOVES to be loved on and spend time in the sunshine. Car rides and walks are favorite activities of hers. She's not a chewer and she's very gentle when given treats. Noelle is a very loving and affectionate dog who just needs a good home of her own! She gets along great with other dogs but a meet and greet is necessary! We don't recommend small kids because of her size. NO cats or birds, please. She needs a fenced yard where she can romp and play and a one story home or at least adequate space downstairs. No apartments. She has been spayed, is current on her shots and has been microchipped. 

If you would like to do a meet and greet with her, please fill out an application under the adoption application tab. We will call you to arrange a time for a meet and greet. Thank you for choosing to adopt.  We adopt only in the Tampa Bay area and not to states outside of Florida.
