Adoptable Dogs

We bet you will find the right dog right here! We try really hard to make sure our descriptions are accurate and reflect the type of home each dogs needs.  Sometimes, the one that catches your eye will end up being the “one”. Other times, your best future buddy may be one you never imagined! If you are not sure, please apply and let us know what you are looking for so that we can keep an eye out for a good fit.

The application process begins with the online application, then vet and personal references are checked, and lastly, a home visit is complete.   During the process, one of our volunteers will reach out to you to set up a meet & greet with the dog(s) you’re interested in adopting.  If you have other dogs in your household, we will help you with safely introducing a new dog into your family.

Please note that RESCUEDohio is run 100% by volunteers who have full-time jobs and families, so it can take up to 7 days for the processing of your application.

All of our rescued dogs are spayed/neutered, microchipped and up-to-date on their vaccinations.  We do our best to determine the breed or mix of our dogs by which appear to be physically predominant.  However, our foster families get to know the dogs very well and we try to describe each of them as their own, not by their breed label.


If this is taking a while, please see our available pets at
