Frequently Asked Questions

What is your adoption fee?

3 Dogs Rescue's adoption fee is $495. Our adoption fee includes: spay/neuter (age and health appropriate), microchip, age appropriate vetting and vaccinations, health examination prior to traveling, fecal testing, deworming, heart worm testing and prevention, and flea/tick prevention. 

Where are you located? Can I come visit your available dogs?

We are a foster-based rescue, meaning that all of our dogs are not at one central location. 3 Dogs Rescue believes that a shelter environment can add more stress to an already traumatic situation for an animal. We have a network of amazing and compassionate local fosters who graciously allow our dogs (and sometimes cats!) to hang out for a few days while they wait for a forever home. 

Can you hold a dog for me?

We do not hold dogs. Please only apply if you know that you will be home to help your new family member acclimate. 

What is my dogs story? Why was it in rescue? How big will my adopted dog be when full grown? Do you know the full mix? 

We work directly with trusted rescues from the South, mainly Mississippi. It is not uncommon for puppies to be found on the side of the road, or for perfect adult dogs to be surrendered. We do not know exactly why dogs end up in rescue, but we do everything we can to get them into a better home. We take our best guess at breed mixes, but our best guess is truly only a guess.
