Adopting a Good Dog

Since 2004, more than 5,000 of our southern “Good Dogs” have found loving forever families in the northeast. Loyal, loving dogs…
left homeless through no fault of their own... rescued, vetted, nurtured and matched to just the right adopters.

  • We Love Sundance!

    We love Sundance! What a loving sweet little angel. We're already snuggling up together on the couch, taking some little runs in the back field, got a new chew toy. We love him sooooo much. Thank you for helping to make this wonderful new chapter in our lives possible. Charley Cordle / South Westerlo NY

  • Chloe settles in:

    Chloe has settled in with us as if she was here all along. She has already taken to our elder golden Riley, who is sooo kind and gentle to her, as we knew he would be. Riley is so excited for her and she already follows him everywhere and adores him. She definitely holds her own, has found all Riley's toys plus her own! We are confident that it won't be long before she has the routine down and is running the show here!! Thank you for everything. We truly appreciate it and are so happy to have her here!

    Yes, Sophie has found a home!! We've had a wonderfully full year together - and Sophie has had her share of snow, family fun, wildlife (including coyote, bear, fox, woodchucks, and frogs), and lots of loving! Thank you for your faith in us. She's a wonderful girl! Priscilla Hellweg/ Holyoke MA

    Here's Tanner and his kids, Cameron and Sydney, on a hike and some biking. Thought we could use a pic without snow to remind us that Spring is coming! Pam G. New Preston CT
