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.

Duchess

Duchess is a charming 8-year-old lady. She is pleasantly plump and enigmatic—she fooled her foster into thinking she was pregnant, but it was all fluff! She loves other kittens and kisseys! 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, microchipped, and up to date with vaccinations, domestic shorthair. ***We now adopt out kitties by themselves or together. You are always welcome to adopt any single kitten or cat for $75 but will receive a reduced fee when adopting two at the same time.

Dottie

Dottie is a sweet young momma looking for her forever home now that her little 3 little ones are almost off to make their own lives. Dottie is just over a year old and aptly named with her purrrrfectly placed beauty dot. This friendly girl is here to set the record straight for all those who think cats are aloof and indifferent, because she is affectionate and has loved everyone she has met. Dottie loves to love and be loved. She will be spayed, microchipped, and vaccinated prior to adoption. To apply to adopt Dottie, go to www.paw patrol Dayton.com/adopt and complete an application.

Bunson

Bunson is an aspiring science purrfessor with a high intellect and a quirky personality. At just a young 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! Because he is just 16 weeks old, 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. ***We now adopt out kitties by themselves or together. You are always welcome to adopt any single kitten or cat for $75 but will receive a reduced fee when adopting two at the same time.

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. Him being only being 4 months old, 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. ***We now adopt out kitties by themselves or together.

Turquoise

Turquoise is a beautiful tricolored cat! She is roughly 3 years old and loves her kitty tree! She is laid back and doesn't destroy anything. She is very playful and loves to play queen of the castle. She doesn't mind being picked up and touching her feet/paws does not bother her. She wants you to stay and hang out with her so much, she will grab your leg to get you to stay when you try to leave. Turquoise would love a house where she gets all of the attention, no dogs or children are advised. She is currently very scared of the dogs in her foster home and hisses and lunges at them, and because she does have a tendency to play a bit rough, we don't think she would be great with small kids. She is doing well with the other foster kitties in the house. If you think Turquoise would be a good fit for you, please apply at www.pawpatroldayton.com. Adoption fee is 75 dollars which includes: microchipped, spayed, and up to date vaccinations. ***We now adopt out kitties by themselves or together.

Happy

Happy fits her name perfectly! She is young 4 months that is full of fun and joy. She loves to play with a long stick and run through commercial tunneling. She also likes to create her own catrobats, you could say. She is a good eater and is litter trained. She loves attention and enjoys belly rubs. Plus she is a HUGE cuddlebug. Happy gets along well with other kittens and dogs. Happy really is the best friend we've all dreamed of. If you interested in Happy, please apply at pawpatroldayton.com.

Mia

Here Kitty Kitty! Check out Mia! AND THOSE WHISKERS! Mia is a sweet little kitty who is completely litterbox trained and loves nothing more than to people watch through a nice big window! Mia is the mother of our seven dwarves litter and has been a great mama despite being just a kitten herself at around only a year old! Mia will require minimal grooming as she is a medium length coated kitty. Mia is coming out of her shell quite nicely. She has a tendency to act shy around new people, but warms up nicely, seeking out lovin's. She now comes when called, purrs up a storm, gives love nibbles, and follows her foster mom through the house. She loves to jump in the dry bathtub and play in there with a few toys while her foster mom gets ready for work. She also gets along great with both cats and dogs. At first, Mia was a bit annoyed by Lincoln (another cat in the home). Now they are now awesome friends and Lincoln follows her around like a love struck Pepe LePew. They even play with toys together and pounce each other under the chair. So if you are looking to adopt 2 kitties at once... Mia and Lincoln are a match made in heaven. Mia will also do well alone and makes friends nicely with other kitties she meets. Mia comes fully vaccinated, microchipped and spayed. If you think you can be this lil’ mama’s loving family you can apply to adopt Mia at www.pawpatroldayton.com/adopt . Mia’s adoption fee is $75. ***We now adopt out kitties by themselves or together.

Daisy

Daisy likes to greet her foster mom every morning with a good morning meow and accepts ample scratches and kisses anytime of the day. Daisy loves play sessions with her brother and sisters and is entertained by toys playing on her own as well. This little girl can be mischievous when it’s time for bed and want to make it playtime instead of settle down time which can be entertaining and totally cattitude-like. There are 6 kittens in the Disney Duck litter. Being that they are tiny, 2 month old, black kittens that can fit just about anywhere, they are great at playing a game of hide and seek... Although the snapping of the can for feeding brings them all running. They all know what the litter box is for and play nicely with each other as well as alone. You can apply for Daisy and/or any of her siblings at www.pawpatroldayton.com.

Lincoln

Lincoln is a domestic grey/white beautiful cat. He is around 3 years young and 12 pounds. Lincoln has come a long way. We believe he was left behind when someone moved and at first he was afraid. Now he is a loving and friendly kitty! His current foster has other animals and Lincoln loves to say hi to them. He is especially fond on Mia if you are looking to adopt 2 kitties at once. In the beginning, Lincoln didn't know what to think of Mia. They are now the best of friends and he follows her like a love struck Pepe LePew. They even play with toys together and pounce each other under the chair. He will also do well being adopted alone and is certain to make friends with other kitties as well. If you have a lot of love to give to this adorable kitty, please apply @pawpatroldayton.com. Adoption fee is 75 dollars.

Rock

Rock is a super little dog who just wants to please. He goes outside easily and walks well on a leash. We think he is about 10 years old but sure has a lot of youth left in him. Even though he had extensive dental surgery recently, he recovered well and eats and takes his pain meds very well. Rock gets along well with other dogs and likes spending time with his foster sibling whether inside or out. He also gets along well with cats too! Rock is like a typical old man that sleeps a lot, but can also run, play, and have fun. This handsome boy is really very sweet, his personality is low key, and he is a joy to be around. Rock can be a typical Jack Russell Terrier that can be clingy especially when his person first get home but how boring is a dog that doesn't want to be near his people? He can sometimes think it is cool to sprinkle his man scent in the house but with some continued work and patience, we think this old dog can learn a new trick! In the meantime, he wears a belly band without complaints and thinks he looks quite dapper in one. You can apply to adopt this17 pounds of happiness by heading over to www.pawpatroldayton.com/adopt. Rock's adoption fee is $150 and he is neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped.

Oden

Oden is a happy guy that really enjoys life! He is a polite fella that doesn't beg for food and doesn't mind being left home alone. This smarty Boxer mix knows where to potty and where not to and even knows a few tricks. He is very gentle with cats and smaller dogs and is really the life of the party. Oden still has a fun, toddler-like personality at just 2 years old. He has a bit of selective listening, so he is hoping someone consistent will continue to teach him things like how to walk loosely on a leash and how to keep all four paws on the floor when he is excited to see people who may pay attention to him. Sweet Oden came to us with Lyme disease, full of worms, and a bit of an upset tummy. He is healing nicely and feeling so much better! He is so so so curious and loves to sniff everything and act goofy. Oden loves bath time and is sure to entertain you in everything he does.

Sophia

Sophia is a sweet little miracle puppy that has just turned one year old. She has defied all odds and is a happy and adorable little girl that has learned to cope with her special needs in such a way she has no idea she is different. Sophia has a condition that is so rare there are very few documented cases. Sophia has a condition called Atresia Ani with Concurrent Rectovaginal Fistula. What does this mean? Well... it means Sophia was born without an anus. How is this possible? Her sphincter is connected to the top of her vagina and she passes her bowel movements through her vulva. I know... it is weird and has a bit of shock factor to it. She seems to have full and independent function of her urine and feces and holds it all night in her crate. She is fully house trained when let out regularly with the exception of what may get trapped in her vagina after she potties outside. This seems to wiggle out on occasion. Gross... I know. But it is what it is and we want you to know just what you would be getting yourself into. She basically requires to be wiped a few times a day but will wear a diaper like the perfect little lady she is when you want her to. Sadly, because surgery appears to be too great of a risk for her, she will continue to go potty this way and recurrent urinary tract infections seem likely though this has not been the case for her thus far with only one documented UTI in her lifetime. If she does have a lot of UTIs, this will be hard on her kidneys and could possibly shorten her lifespan. This sweet little girl was dealt a crappy hand. Despite that, she is so full of joy and cherishes life. She plays, she fetches, and she loves people and dogs alike. She is a master cuddle buddy and lap warmer. Sophia is so loving and constantly makes people smile. She is a typical 13 pound, playful puppy that likes to play with toys, chew on bones, and walks well on a leash. She is full of fun and settles nicely. She plays great with other playful dogs and heeds the warnings from ones that would rather not play. This cutie patootie sits for her treats and is good with kids too. She is crate trained and hardly ever complains when she has to be in one. We believe Sophia to be a Maltese/Poodle mix with stunning eyes that melt your heart. She might have some unusual medical issues but she more than makes up for it with her sweetness and her charm. You may apply to adopt Sophia at www.pawpatroldayton.com/adopt. Her adoption fee is $150 and she is spayed, vaccinated, and microchipped. ***She will need to be regularly monitored and treated for urinary tract infections when necessary. She may require a special diet and cranberry supplements to try to prevent infections. We have been advised that surgery would likely cause her to become incontinent and other side effects (some life threating) would be possible. We have done all the research possible and are taking the advice of our vet not to do the surgery. This has not been an easy decision but we fully believe she is happy just the way she is and will have much greater quality of life without the surgery.***

Adoption fee: $150
