We are in desperate...DESPERATE need of loving, committed foster homes. 

Without the love, kindness, understanding and commitment of animal lovers like yourself
we just cannot save as many lives. 
We need homes for them to live in, be loved and socialized in order to bring them out of
shelters or risky/threatening situations. 
PLEASE won't you consider joining our rescue family and becoming a volunteer and foster. 
Your heart will beat happier knowing and seeing the difference you have made.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Lost Pet FInder


Say hello to our girl HALEY.  Haley first came to us from Anne Arundel County Animal Control back in 2008.  In 2009 she was adopted by a couple who would later make the decision to seperate.  No worries her "mom" said...Haley was going with her to their new home.  That changed on June 20th when her "mom" dropped her off at a shelter...then informed us by e-mail that her living situation had changed again and she was not able to keep Haley.  While we are very thankful that she did contact us (thank you P.G. Co. for suggesting for her to e-mail us) it left Haley in a risky situation. 

Miss Haley is back with us again, and again she has to be kenneled simply because we have no foster for her.  If you would like to become a foster, or an adopter, please contact us at  If you would like to help us with Haley's kennel cost it would be greatly appreciated.  You can mail your check payable to Dog Rescue of MD to P.O. Box 515, Pasadena, MD. 21123, or use our secure PayPal link and note it fo Haley.  Thank you!!

If you think they all make it out of a shelter and into a new home, think again.  Here is a very sad truth that is even harder to watch.  This is what their lives are reduced to when the very ones they thought would love them forever let them down.  Be responsible when adding a pet to your family, and please, spay and neuter.

We Are In DESPERATE NEED of Fosters.

Because we are a very small group we cannot afford to utilze boarding kennels to house our dogs.  Our dogs are always kept in the homes of our foster volunteers.  We also feel that it is better to have them in a family environment, learning and being loved.  Being with a family makes a world of difference in how they behave, and having foster homes for them means the difference between life and death to them.  Won't YOU please consider being a foster for us so that we can contimue helping those who need us most.  Here is a link to our Adoption and Foster Application.  You would need to save it to your documents first, then open it to fill it out, save it again and attach it to an e-mail back to us at

The reward you get will be knowing you have saved a life!

Adopting A Friend

Who says you can't find true love on the internet.
Please adopt don't shop. Put a stop to puppy mills.
If you see a dog that you are interested in please ask us for a adoption application and we would be happy to send one to you. At this time we are limited to central Maryland. There will be a home visit as apart of the application once your application is approved there will be a $225.00 adoption fee only if you decide to adopt a dog from us.  There are no up front fees.

National Statistics:

Only 1 out of 10 dogs born ever get a home--- Only 1 out of 12 cats born ever find a home---- 800 dogs & cats are KILLED each HOUR in the U.S, because there are not enough homes for them

Saving one animal will not change the world, but it will change the world for that one animal.

Please Spay And Neuter Your Pets!!!

For information on low cost spay and neuter please visit our Links page.
