The dogs we have for adoption are known as "rescue dogs". These are dogs
that have come into our organization for various reasons; some are from
owners who have a need to turn in their pets, some come from puppy mills,
and some come from animal shelters. Wherever these animals come from we
"rescue" and try to place them in loving, permanent, forever homes. However,
we have little or no background information. These little dogs come with
their "baggage" and we don't know what is in there.
Once we take a dog into our program, it is placed in a foster home. It is
usually with several other little dogs. In the daily care of these dogs, it
is observed as to how they get along with each other, their temperaments,
energy levels, etc. It takes a few days for them to gain enough feeling of
being secure to let their true personalities shine through.
When an applicant applies for a particular animal, we do our best to match
the dog with a suitable family.

Because we take in and treat dogs that are older and often ill, our vet
bills are almost always more than our adoption fee. Therefore, we accept and
encourage donations. Maybe a new or additional dog is not in your plans for
now but you can still help with dogs that desperately need us and YOU. If you
would like to make a donation to Heaven Sent Animal Rescue you can use our
