FAQs


1. Where do Good Dogs come from?

Loyal and loving dogs turn up every day in Southern shelters as owners turn them in or they’re found roaming the streets after being dumped. To the best of our abilities, we evaluate all of our Good Dogs’ temperaments and suitability for living with other dogs, cats, and children. A dog’s health is checked, and we make sure they are up-to-date on all shots and are spayed or neutered. Then we place them in loving foster homes until they find their own family. Our goal is to meet the needs of each dog as an individual and to assure proper placement in a loving forever home

2. Can I visit your shelter or reach you by phone?

Good Dog Rescue is a shelterless rescue organization so we have no building or business phone. Our dogs live in private foster homes until adopted. If you are interested in one of our Good Dogs, the first step is to complete and submit an adoption application, the link to which is found in each dog’s online bio.

3. Where are the Good Dogs located?

Our dogs are living in private foster homes in the South and they come to the Northeast after they are adopted.

4. How much is the adoption fee and what’s included?

Good Dog Rescue’s first priority is the well-being of the dogs. Good Dogs that were rescued from the shelter have been in a private foster home for at least 3 weeks prior to adoption, and much care is given to insure that any health related issues are diagnosed and treated prior to adoption and transport. During their stay in Southern foster homes, Good Dogs are seen by our veterinarian on several occasions for the purpose of vaccines, spay/neuter, followup exams and final examination and health certificate just prior to transport to their new homes. Your Good Dog’s vet records will come with him to the Northeast.

5. How long does the adoption process take?

The application process and transport takes about 1-2 weeks. So it’s best to apply for your Good Dog when you are ready to adopt.

6. How do I know if I’m adopting a healthy dog?

During their stay in Southern foster homes, Good Dogs are seen by our veterinarian on several occasions for the purpose of vaccines, spay/neuter, followup exams and final examination and health certificate just prior to transport to their new homes. Your Good Dog’s vet records will come with him to the Northeast.

7. How do Good Dogs get from the South to the Northeast?

Good Dogs travel every week from the South to the Northeast aboard USDA-certified professional transport carriers. We utilize the services of PETS Transport to bring our Good Dogs safely to their Forever Families in the Northeast. Prior to travel, each dog receives a veterinary health certificate, certifying that the dog is in good health with no transmissible diseases.
