Available Dogs

Thank you so much for choosing Detroit Dog Rescue!

Due to COVID-19, applications may take longer to process. Please be patient with our team as we go through each application. If you have already submitted an application, we are in the process of arranging call backs now. Please know that we are still rescuing dogs and our needs change daily.

Also at this time, we are only accepting applications for homes with no other pets because our team cannot facilitate in-home animal introductions. We hope to change this soon.

Thank you so much for your support and understanding during this difficult time as we navigate these protocols daily.

Quick Facts

A home check is required for all adoptions and potential fosters to ensure that the dog and your family are a great fit for one another. A team member will also assist with the proper introduction of your current animals and the prospective dog. A binding contract is also required to finalize the adoption of the dog. Please understand that dogs are not placed on a first come, first served basis, and we take special care placing dogs into families where they will be able to thrive.

To help cover the costs of the spay/neuter of age appropriate dogs, age appropriate vaccinations, temperament testing and temporary boarding of the dog, we ask for a small fee. Adoption fees are $200 for senior dogs, $250 for medium and large adult dogs, and $300 for small dogs and puppies.*

*If for some reason you feel the dog is not a fit for your home within five days of the adoption,  we can keep your fee on file for another adoption for up to 90 days. Donations made to Detroit Dog Rescue are non-refundable.
