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

Duchess

If you think Duchess is the royal floofy addition your household needs, apply to adopt her at www.pawpatroldayton.com/adopt. Her adoption fee is $75 and she is a spayed domestic shorthair.

Abby

Abby is 10-years old and serene as can be. Abby is a bit reserved but will warm up to you in no time flat. Unlike other members of her species, Abby does not like climbing on furniture or shelves (although we can’t guarantee she won’t knock over a water glass if presented with the opportunity). She is 100% litterbox trained and takes most of her naps on a kitty bed on the floor. Abby is mild-mannered and sweet yet will not hesitate to lay down the law if a dog invades her personal space. Abby will also get along with other cats after she deems them acceptable company. Abby’s favorite time of the day is mealtime, and rest assured, she will not let you forget! Abby is also affectionate and cuddly and will let you know when she needs some petting time. Abby is anemic so she appears quite skinny, but she is a healthy eater and does not let her anemia slow her down. If Abby sounds like your perfect feline friend, apply to adopt her today at www.pawpatroldayton.com/adopt. Abby is vaccinated, microchipped, and spayed. Her adoption fee is $75.

Adoption fee: $75

Buzz

Buzz is shy little guy at 9 weeks old. Buzz loves playing with dogs as well as human attention. Buzz is affectionate but not huge on cuddling. He will let you hold him but isn’t afraid to tell you when time is up! He takes a little time to warm up, but once he does, you’ll have the cutest little furball for a friend. Buzz loves to talk, and we’re pretty sure his tiny meow could melt even the coldest of hearts. When he’s not zooming around with his feline and canine siblings, you can catch Buzz napping in his fuzzy bed. Much like Fuzz, Buzz is a climber—so watch out! If Buzz sounds like the perfect addition to your household, apply to adopt him today at www.pawpatroldayton.com/adopt. Buzz is neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped. He is a long-haired kitten and his adoption fee is $75.

Adoption fee: $75

Bunson

Bunson is an aspiring science purrfessor with a high intellect and a quirky personality. At just 9 weeks of age, there’s no telling what scientific breakthrough he’ll uncover through research. Bunson may be brainy but he also loves to play! He’s a bit standoffish at first but then warms up quickly to dogs and other cats. Bunson would do best in a home with kids 7 years and up and a couple of fur siblings to play with. Bunson may be a little nervous, but a cat tree, some toys, and patience from his future family will go a long way in making him more comfortable! We predict he will warm up to be a friendly kitty. He does still hiss from time to time, and he is still a little tense when picked up. His foster recommends that his future family keep Bunson in a confined area of the home for a couple days to make sure he learns to use the litterbox. Bunson is neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped. He is a long-haired cat and his adoption fee is $75.

Adoption fee: $75


Beeker

Beeker is a little more sociable than his littermate Bunson. He’s still a little shy but if you scratch behind his ears, his purr motor gets going no problem. Beeker loves playing with cats and dogs, as well as kids, provided they know how to be gentle. With a little patience and some TLC, Beeker should become quite the affectionate kitty. Beeker loves playing with toys and climbing. Beeker is very playful and if his future home has fur siblings, there won’t be a dull moment! We recommend that Beeker has a scratching post and a cat tree in his future home to his love for climbing. Beeker needs some time to adjust but once he does, you’ll have a buddy for life! We recommend keeping Beeker in a confined area of the home for a couple days to make sure he learns to use the litterbox. Beeker is neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped. He is a long-haired cat and his adoption fee is $75.

Balto

Balto is a sweet little pittie who just wants your attention and will happily take any extra belly rubs you have to spare. Balto has excellent manners playing with other pups! He is even decent with cats. He is curious about kitties and may poke at them a bit but leaves them along once he realizes they aren't aliens here to do strange things to him. This sweet boy can be a bit nervous, especially with men. While Balto responds well to correction, loud voices make him fearful so a confident yet gentle leader is just what he needs. Balto is learning how to trust and once he is comfortable he can be your best pal. He is looking for a family that will be patient with him while he is adjusting. This guy walks wonderfully with a gentle leader leash! Balto sure does love a good walk and does not show much reaction to people or dogs along his path. Balto is house trained and will even grumble at the door to let you know he needs some potty time. Balto is a big baby that isn’t a big fan of the vet or getting his nails trimmed. It is possible he may even need to be sedated for vet visits as he is not a fan of being poked and prodded, but who is? Balto has some sensitive skin and allergies so he takes some inexpensive meds to keep them in check. It's cool though because he will save you 100$/year on your Ring doorbell subscription, as he will promptly let you know when your property is disturbed. He isn't fond of the crate if he is alone in one. When his people are there, he will use it as a safe place and hang out. Balto’s foster family has been letting him stay out of the crate when they leave and he has been the best boy and not shown any destructive tendencies. Balto has a super good sniffer and will help himself to something left on the counter if possible, so people need to be careful what they leave out. Balto LOVES car rides and will happily hang out the window to catch some breeze and smells! Balto is a smart little guy, and picks up on things very quickly! He knows sit, down and speak and is working on learning other good behaviors as well! Balto is up to date on vaccinations, microchipped and neutered. His is 60 pounds and about 5 and a half months old. His adoption fee is $100. If you would like to meet Balto to see if you could be his forever family, you can apply to adopt him at www.pawpatroldayton.com/adopt.

Adoption fee: $100

Wilson

I’d like to introduce you to our pal Wilson! We think Wilson to be about a year and a half old dachshund. Wilson is your typical doxie! He loves to snuggle and relax with his people, and only WANTS to be outside when the weather is just right for him. Wilson has been doing great with his foster doggy siblings big and small alike and is a chill little guy to have riding shotgun with you! Wilson can be a little shy around new people, so small children would probably overwhelm him and quieter, slow introductions will be helpful for Wilson’s success. Wilson is getting the hang of potty training and he’s figuring out his leash skills as well! However, the crate is not WIlson’s favorite and although he hasn’t had any accidents, he will let you know that he doesn’t want to be in there! But who could blame him?! Wilson knows the fun is where his people are! Wilson may take a little while to warm up to you, but when he does, he knows that the people who have earned his trust are the bees knees. WIlson would follow his people to the ends of the earth - or just room to room in your home even. Wilson loves to cuddle his people, but sometimes has a strange way of showing it! He is still figuring out how to communicate with people and sometimes will show traits that are misleading to his feelings, but rest assured, all WIlson wants is to cuddle the ones he trusts. Wilson loves cheese almost as much as snugglers, so stock your fridge before bringing him home! Wilson is protective of those he trusts and just wants to be someone’s guard doxie. If you think you can use Wilson’s protection and love service’s you can apply to adopt him at www.pawpatroldayton.com/adopt . Wilson is microchipped, vaccinated and neutered. Wilson’s adoption fee is $250.

JoJo

If you’re looking for a lap dog, you couldn’t ask for a cuter companion than Ms. JoJo! She is a year old and mostly house-trained, though she prefers that her humans accompany her outside when it’s time to go potty. JoJo is sweet and lovable but isn’t afraid to warn off other dogs if they enter her “bubble.” JoJo has not been tested with feline friends but does very well in her crate. She’s shy at the start but will trot around the house with you and beg to go on car rides in no time. Despite her small size, JoJo is low-energy, making her a great work-from-home colleague. JoJo walks well on a leash and is sure to bring joy to her future home. JoJo has been snappy with young children, but who can blame her—those little gremlins have no concept of personal space! JoJo is eagerly awaiting her new family—could it be you!? This little cutie is sure to be adopted quickly! Apply to adopt her today at www.pawpatroldayton.com/adopt. JoJo is spayed, vaccinated, and microchipped. Her adoption fee is $325 and she is a chihuahua mix.

Adoption fee: $325
