RESCUE GROUPS


If you’re considering adopting a rescue dog, it’s better to go through a rescue group than getting a dog on the internet. Most rescue groups place dogs in foster homes for a few months before the dog goes to their ‘forever home’. This allows the foster home to assess the dogs to determine what type of home and family is best suited for them.
