Adopt a pet

Interested in our rescue pets? The process of adopting a pet from us is simple.

  1. Browse our Adoptable pets list.
  2. If you see one you’re interested in, click the button to apply for that pet.
  3. We will process your application.
  4. After you are approved, we will schedule a time for you and the pet to meet each other!
  5. In the event that you don’t choose the pet after all, you will still be an approved adopter and able to schedule other Meet & Greet sessions.
Our rescue is an all (unpaid) volunteer organization. For each application we receive it takes us approximately 3 hours to review, contact all personal and veterinary references, and make a decision on approval of it. Depending upon volunteer availability, this can take us several days to accomplish, especially when we receive many applications or if we have difficulties reaching references. Your patience is appreciated! If you don't see a pet that you are interested in right now, feel free to fill out an application and get pre-approved to reduce your wait time when you do see a pet you like.


Xander

And now that I have your attention--*ahem* Helloooo ladies. The name is Xander. Now, let’s get some things straight—I know I look like a hound straight out of a furternity but believe me when I say I’m LTR material. As you can see, I take fitness seriously (I mean, look at those glutes—just saying.) I’m looking for a partner that can be active with me but is also game for cuddling on the couch and watching some Animal Planet. I’m a Virgo—so I have an eye for detail and grooming and cleanliness is of utmost importance to me. If you’re not willing to spend a day at the doggy spa with me, kindly move along. If you’re looking for the way to my heart, I’ll give you a hint—sweaters and bubbles—you’re welcome 😉 A word to the wise—look into these soulful brown eyes too long and you’ll soon be lost to my charms. I’m an affectionate guy so don’t be surprised if I shower you with kisses. I’m a one-year-old pup and have all of the relevant skills down—sit, lay down, and going to my crate when directed (okay, fine, it’s not my favorite but gimme a break.) I’m still learning how to walk on a leash and can be a bit shy when I first meet you but give me some time and I’ll be your new best friend. As for my other furkind, I sometimes get overexcited when I see them out and about but I’ll settle down quickly. I’ve been told I play a little rough, so I would prefer a doggy sibling that lets me be the boss or a home where I’ll be the sole canine of the castle. Some of my favorite hobbies include fetch and tug-of-war, and if you must banish me to the crate, I require a toy to not expire of boredom. Apparently, not everyone is a hugger—I’m still working on this, but I would probably do best in a home without young children or someone elderly. Anyway, that’s about it for me, folks. If you like what you see, apply at www.pawpatroldayton.com/adopt. P.S. I’m neutered, up to date on vaccines, microchipped, and heartworm negative (what more could you want!?) My adoption fee is $225.

Rusti

Rusti is a guy who just hasn’t had that someone to love him as much as he loves in return. Who doesn’t want that?! Rusti is house-trained and generally well-mannered in the house. This handsome boy is a lower-energy dog that will follow his people around the house while happily waggin’ his tail when he isn’t curled up somewhere snoozing. Rusti LOVES to snuggle and cuddle! He also loves to be praised and encouraged and is constantly seeking attention. Since Rusti is not a stranger to rejection it takes time to earn his trust, but once earned he will love BIG in return. Rejection typically leads to lack of confidence, and while Rusti has struggled with his confidence, his fosters and trainers have made big strides with helping him build it back up. Rusti would be the luckiest dog to find a human that is also confident and willing to continue working on his training and needs. He would also do well with another canine buddy or two in the home to help maintain this confidence. Rusti does very well playing with other well-mannered dogs he knows and enjoys playtime. He does his best with slow introductions and plenty of time to adjust to his new friends. Rusti's experiences in life have made him feel he always needed to be on high alert with a need to be heard for attention. He is learning that is not the way to behave or how get attention, and is working on controlling the need to let everyone know when there are things going on outside. Rusti has been going through training including how to properly handle various situations, his reactions, and learning neighborhood dogs are not his enemies. Rusti is doing very well with his training and has come so far! A privacy fence and a close watch over open doors would help him succeed in his new home. Rusti is a dog that is so very loving and loyal and most comfortable once he feels he has a familiar, trusted pack whether human or canine. New people, especially bearded men, are something Rusti needs extra patience and time to become at ease with. He will let you know when he is uncomfortable in a situation, or if his personal space isn’t being respected, by giving a warning. A mature family or individual is best for this guy, as young kids are too much for him and it is clear he is uncomfortable when they are running, acting all silly, or tugging or hugging on him. Rusti likes his down time and is a fan of having his own crate to make his private den as he is happiest in calm and quiet situations. We believe Rusti to be a 5 year old, 55 pound Viszla-Labrador Retriever mix that is starting to learn dog food is good and much more healthy for him than people-food. Rusti is a great dog that is looking for someone to love him as much as he loves, and who is willing to provide the time, patience, tools, understanding and encouragement he needs, for a ton of love, enjoyment, cuddles, and loyalty in return. Rusti is neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped and his adoption fee is $200. He tested positive for Lyme disease but is on treatment and asymptomatic. If you think you could be the perfect home for this big guy you can complete an adoption application at pawpatroldayton.com/adopt.

Adoption fee: $200

Balto

Balto is a sweet pupp-o looking for a new family to take care of him. Balto has come to us due to an unfortunate family circumstance but he is putting his best smile on for a new family to scoop him up! Balto is a sweet little pittie who just wants your attention and will happily take any extra belly rubs you have to spare. Balto will save you 100$/year on your Ring doorbell subscription, as he will promptly let you know when your property is disturbed. Balto has excellent manners playing with other pups! Balto will need a family that will be patient with him while he is adjusting. Balto can be nervous, especially with men. While Balto responds well to correction, yelling scares him and he will need someone who can correct him without losing their temper or being too loud. Balto just needs to learn how to trust again, he has been taken away from his comfort zone and does not quite know what to do with it. Balto does okay with cats. He is curious about them and may poke at them a little, but when corrected he will leave them alone. Balto does wonderfully walking with a gentle leader leash! Balto does not show too much reaction to people or dogs on his walk, but boy does he love a good walk! Balto has not had any potty accidents with his foster family. He will even grumble at the door to let you know he needs some potty time. Balto isn’t a big fan of the vet or getting his nails trimmed. Balto may even need to be sedated for vet visits, he is not a fan of being poked and proded, but who is? Balto does not like crates if he is alone in them. When his people are there, Balto will use it as a safe place and hang out, but alone he is not a huge fan of them. Balto’s foster family has been letting him stay out of the crate when they leave and he has not shown any destructive tendencies. Balto is a counter surfer, so his family will want to be careful about what could be in reach! Balto LOVES car rides. He will happily hang out the window to catch some breeze and smells! Balto knows sit, down and speak and is working on learning other tricks as well! Balto is a smart little guy, and picks up on things very quickly! Balto just started some medications for sensitive skin and allergies which he will likely need long term. Balto is up to date on shots, microchipped and neutered. His adoption fee is $100. If you think you could be Balto’s forever family you can apply to adopt him at www.pawpatroldayton.com/adopt

Adoption fee: $100

Dorian

Dorian is only a year old but has already made the most of his short time here! He is very sweet and loves to be around people. Dorian will let you hold him at his discretion, and if you are afforded the privilege, you will get to experience his fur that is “as soft as a bunny’s” according to his foster. He loves to be the center of attention and is very inquisitive. Dorian is litter-trained and is good with other cats and cat-friendly dogs. Dorian has an impressive resumé, which includes: food connoisseur, aspiring yoga master, lover of nature, and interspecies friendship maker. Dorian also has a hidden talent—he is an excellent gift-wrapper, so he would love to help his humans out around the holidays. Dorian is not a fan of his carrier but otherwise is an easygoing sweetheart. A word to the wise, however: hanger is not exclusive to humans, which Dorian proved by ripping open his food bag when dinner was late! If a cat who communes with nature and will challenge you to improve your physical and spiritual well-being sounds like a perfect fit for you, apply to adopt him today at pawpatroldayton.com/adopt! He is neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped. His adoption fee is $75.
