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 elderly people. 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.

Stark

Stark is a very special boy who will need a patient, special family. He has a laundry list of medical problems, the least of which is a need to put some meat on his bones. This is due to the fact he has "mega esophagus", meaning the tube that carries food and liquid between the mouth and stomach gets larger and loses its ability to move food into the stomach. Thankfully, Stark is not showing any clinical signs of this issue, meaning he does not regurgitate his food at this point. We do however used raised bowls to feed him and have him on a low fat, prescription diet that is good for dogs with this condition. While Stark is only 2 and a half years old... and he also has what is called "myasthenia gravis", his legs are showing a lot of improvement! He has slowly been able to start walking and even running without too many problems from his back legs. Stark is a wonderful boy who has a lot to give to a family who is willing to help him learn how to best enjoy life, despite the medical issues he has. The vet would like to set the goal of being able to eventually taper off his meds, however at this point in time, we cannot say for certain whether this will happen. The vet is extremely pleased with how well he responded to the medicine and does have high hopes that he will eventually be able to be weaned off it. Stark is going to be a lot of work for his family, but promises he will do his best to make it all worth it! Once Stark is comfortable with his people he is extremely loving, yet still independent enough to not need constant attention, while preferring to be near his people. He is pretty much house trained, despite the fact that none of his legs are working wonderfully. While with his foster, he has not needed crated and has not shown destructive tendencies. Frankly, Stark sleeps on the couch at night like a lump! He’s a smart boy who has become a sit and shake pro! Stark loves other dogs and has been able to begin playing with his foster brother while his legs are learning to keep up with him! Stark gets a little too excited when getting treats sometimes (don’t we all?), but once he is told “easy” remembers that he should still have some manners. Stark doesn’t get too excited over toys, but he is starting to occasionally enjoy a good tennis ball. Stark is learning to walk on a leash, and while not animal or person reactive, is still learning basic leash manners. He is definitely a very special boy with some special needs that are totally worth the trouble. Stark is microchipped, up to date on vaccines, and heartworm negative. Because of his condition, we are going to wait until he is more stable to neuter him. Stark’s adoption fee is $150 and it will be in the contract that you must take him to be neutered at our vet in approximately 6 months to a year when he is ready. This will be schedule by us and paid for at our expense. If you think you could be the special family that Stark needs, you can submit an application for him at www.pawpatroldayton.com/adopt. **Please research both myasthenia gravis and mega esophagus prior to applying for this sweet boy to ensure you understand the care he will require.**

Adoption fee: $150

Wiggles

*****We know Wiggles is very cute and catches everyone’s heart. However, we are looking for a home for Wiggles that understands that her cuteness comes with a lot of work. She is a special needs puppy. Wiggles has a condition called Cerebellum Hypoplasia, which means her cerebellum is smaller than it’s supposed to be and this affects her mobility. Wiggles is a 12-week-old, 12 lb fluffball that is so sweet and loving. She has stolen everyone’s heart that has met her. We probably should’ve called her Tigger as she is bouncy, trouncy, flouncy, pouncy, due to her condition. She loves playing with other dogs and will need another playful but respectful dog in the home. We do not know what breed mixes Wiggles is made up of, there are a lot of theories. We do know her mom was 50 lbs and she will likely be that big as well. Her body may not be that of a regular puppy but her behaviors still are. She still chews things she shouldn’t, bites on fingers, plays too rough at times, and needs to be taught about rules and manners. We would prefer her to go to a home with older children that will understand her special needs and be gentle with her. Wiggles is a special girl looking for a special person or family to love her and see the joy she feels about life. While Wiggles’ condition requires more work than most puppies it also comes with a few good things. She always looks like she’s dancing to music only she can hear. She will never need correcting for jumping on people, stealing food from your counter, or getting on furniture she isn’t supposed to. She will not need a lot of formal exercise as playing in the back yard with a buddy and chewing on toys will be more than enough most of the time. You do need to keep in mind that since she is more work than most puppies her adopters need to be patient and have the extra time to give to Wiggles each and every day. She will need grooming and more baths than most dogs. She will likely be 50-60 lbs and this will mean that she can knock over small children and elderly people without meaning to. Delicate objects will need to be kept in rooms that she is not in to keep them safe. While she can go up and down a few steps she may not be able to do an entire flight of stairs. Meeting new dogs will need to be handled slowly as she can be a little insecure around new dogs since she is weaker and makes her feel vulnerable. Also not every dog will be nice to her weird ways. Traveling with her may also be more difficult as she will need assistance getting in and out of the car, as well as, needing an understanding place for her to stay while you’re out of town. Please research the condition Cerebellum Hypoplasia before applying. There is a lot to consider and we want to find the best fit for our little bobble head. If you are still prepared to open your home to this girl please apply for her at www.pawpatroldayton.com/adopt. Wiggles is spayed, microchipped, has age appropriate vaccines and has been dewormed. Her adoption fee is $250.
