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.


Marky Mark

Marky Mark is an approximately 8 year old beagle mix who, yes, is the lead singer of Marky Mark and the Barky Bunch! Not to be confused with Mark Walberg from the Funky Bunch. If you do adopt Marky Mark you will have full access and backstage passes to every concert that they bark at. This will include bus access while touring which is filled with all the good vibrations. (For legal purposes, Barky Bunch's band member Hector "The Booty Inspector" only sniffs other dogs, humans will not be affected.) When he is not on tour, Marky Mark loves to stay at home laiiiiiid back (with his mind on his money and his money on his mind, of course). He loves his orthopedic doggie bed. He is house and crate trained. He is claustrophobic and does not like cars or tight spaces, so you must be willing to share all aspects of your bed with this pop star. He would be best with a house that is calm, such as no children; his nerves are shot from all that touring. Marky Mark is so worn out from being on tour, he just wants someone to relax and watch tv with, although an occasional stroll around the neighborhood to check out his groupies is appreciated. The cutest thing about him is his front paws are pointed outward due to a genetic deformity, but it doesn't stop him from shaking his thang! If you are interested, please apply at pawpatroldayton.com. He comes fully vaccinated, microchipped, and neutered. Adoption fee is 175 dollars. PS if you work for Calvin Klein, please stop calling us. Marky Mark only wears SilverPAW, thank you.

Adoption fee: $175

Charlotte

Are you looking for a beautiful black kitty that is affectionate and wants attention? Charlotte absolutely loves to cuddle with you on the couch and will even let you pick the movie. This fun girl also loves to play with crinkly wand toys. She is great at letting you know when it is dinner time and uses the litter box like a pro. Being around 3 years old, Charlotte prefers to be the only cat, as she likes to be the center of attention. She is also more of a homebody and only wants to ride in cars when absolutely necessary. Charlotte is a sweetie looking for her happily ever after. If you think Charlotte might be the friend you have been looking for, you may apply for her at pawpatroldayton.com/adopt. Her adoption fee is $75 and she is fully vaccinated, microchipped, FIV and FELV tested negative and is spayed.

Adoption fee: $75

Chloe

Chloe is a very special cat who is still learning to trust people. She would welcome a home that offers her the patience she needs to adjust and understand her need to warm up to new surroundings on her own time. She will come out and even play with toys when she is comfortable. She is curious about the cats around her but it still too reserved to play with them. She does love treats (this is the way to her heart!). Though Chloe has a lack of desire to be a lap cat, she does enjoy being pet and lounge near you, as long as her surroundings are quiet and calm. She loves to walk around and rub against your legs to say hello. We believe Chloe to be a domestic short hair just a year old that is littler box trained. She is a tiny girl that gets spooked easily and will hide when she is unsure. If you are looking for an independent companion and have the heart to help grow trust, then Chloe may be the girl for you. She definitely enjoys affection, she is just scared at times to receive it. You may apply to adopt Chloe at www.pawpatroldayton.com/adopt. Her adoption fee is $75 and she is vaccinated, FIV and FELV tested negative, microchipped, and spayed. Many cats do well alone, but they often do great in pairs as well and can benefit from having a feline friend. Because of this, our adoption fees are $75 for one kitten or cat and $100 for two when adopted at the same time.

Adoption fee: $75

Severus

Severus is a cuddly boy who loves to purr. He needs time to adjust to his surroundings and decompress... but once he does, he is such a sweet boy. His kitten siblings have done great at teaching him how to play with others. He loves all the attention he can get and has been known to lick your face and demand pets and snuggles. He has the most perfect purr and though he can be a bit nervous at times has blossomed into a very loving and playful fella. Apply to adopt Severus at pawpatroldayton.com/adopt. Severus is a domestic shorthair that is approximately 8 months old. His adoption fee is $75 and he is fully vaccinated, microchipped, FIV and FELV tested negative, and is neutered. Adopt him and any other of our Paw Patrol Kitties at the same time and their adoption fee for both kitties is $100.

Adoption fee: $75

Mina

Mina is an amazing lovebug that has been waiting for a new home for over six months now and she has had zero interest. She has watched all her kittens get adopted out and she really deserves a chance at a forever home. Here is what you need to know. Mina was found in the early summer on a Dayton street. Friendly, obviously pregnant, and needing a place to crash. She had five adorable kittens, that were all adopted out quickly and found great homes. But poor Mina is overlooked. She is a beautiful girl, about 16 months old and loves to both play and cuddle with her person. Shes never had a litter box issue; she uses it all the time. Very good about using her scratch posts and isnt destructive to the furniture in the rooms. She likes to play; her favorite cat toys are the small stuffed ones with catnip and feathers she bats them around the rooms and loves to chew on them. Mina is very loyal to her person and she is shy around others at first. She doesnt show well at events, it takes her a bit to warm up and be comfortable. But once she does, watch out! She gives you all the head nudges, nose bops and biscuit kneading you could ever ask for. We would love for her to find a person that is looking for a cat that is still young enough to play and be a long-term companion, but also old enough to have outgrown all the kitten destructive behaviors. She does like to play with our one, lone friendly cat under the door so I think with a slow intro to other cats she would be fine. Im unsure how she would be with dogs. If you or someone you know is looking for an awesome kitty, Mina is your gal and she deserves a chance. Mina's adoption fee is $75 and she is spayed, vaccinated, FILV tested negative, and microchipped. You can apply to adopt her at www.pawpatroldayton.com/adopt.

Adoption fee: $75

Deagol

Deagol is a sweet, calm soul who loves to cuddle but is also ready to play when the mood strikes. Deagol has excellent leash manners and gets along great with other dogs and cats alike. He makes for an adorable copilot, as he enjoys riding in the car and is the perfect size of 45 pounds to be a good travel buddy. Deagol has the occasional accident, although this can be prevented by gating off other rooms. He's a lover and has some separation anxiety, as he doesn't like to be left alone outside. Deagol would be a great candidate for a home with a doggie door, as he loves playing outside and leaving the door cracked alleviates his anxiety. He doesn't love the crate and will cry if he's put in a different room. However, he can be left alone gated with no issues and thus doesn't necessarily need crated. Are you able to give Deagol some TLC and a happy home? We believe him to be around 6 years old and a lab mix. Apply to adopt him today at www.pawpatroldayton.com/adopt. He is vaccinated, neutered, and microchipped. His adoption fee is $260.

Adoption fee: $260

Scooby Doo

Scooby Dooby Doo, where are you?! Here I am!! Meet Scooby Doo. Scooby is around 2 years old, weighs around 52lbs, and we believe him to be a Bully Breed, possibly mixed with a Shar Pei. This boy is such a love bug- he enjoys and welcomes belly rubs and pets. He also welcomes any and all playtimes. Scooby loves to play and LOVES his toys. Scooby is a great walker; he is fantastic on the leash and never pulls. He also loves car rides and will rest his head on your arm. Overall, he is the perfect travel companion! Scooby is also potty trained and comfortable using the doggy door. He also knows basic commands such as SIT and OFF. He is easily trainable, especially when treats or toys are involved! Scooby does have a bit of food and toy reactivity towards other dogs, so playtime with others should be food/toy free. We have to water down his kibble and/or give him wet, grain free, food due to his genetic condition, known as cutaneous mucinosis. Please research this illness prior to applying for him; his foster will be able to answer any questions you have! Scooby is looking for his Shaggy and/or Mystery Machine family! Could this be you? You may apply to adopt Scooby at www.pawpatroldayton.com/adopt. Their adoption fee is $225 and is vaccinated, heartworm tested, microchipped and neutered.

Grigio

Sweet boy Grigio loves everyone! Dogs? Yes, please! Even better if they let him cuddle up near them. Cats? Ohhh, definitely! Hello my new best friends! You're cranky? I know how to keep my distance and slowly worm my way into your heart. Besides hanging out with his four legged friends, Gatto Grigio (Grey Cat) enjoys sleeping in bed or hanging out on the couch with his humans. While being held isn't his favorite thing, he does appreciate pets, getting attention, and occasional playtime. He is a bit of a couch potato at heart, and after living on the streets, who can blame him? He rarely meows, but he will make adorable chirping and cooing noises when he wants something, and then he will lead you to what he wants. Such a smart boy! If he had thumbs he's do it himself, but... He seems like he would be a good candidate for someone who likes to take their cat out with them, as he has done great on a lead and harness while inside at meet and greet events, and acts like he's on a mission. Maybe to find his perfect forever home? While not exploring or making new friends, Gri loves to chill in a cat tree or chair and gaze out the window (or sleep) and just make your world a better place by him being in it. Oh... and he is litter trained too. What more could you ask for? Gri will go home with his new family up to date on vaccines, neutered and microchipped. You can apply to adopt Gri at www.pawpatroldayton.com/adopt . Gris adoption fee is $75, but if you would like to bring another kitty friend home with Gri, the adoption fee is $100 for the pair.

Adoption fee: $75

Macy

Macy is very affectionate, loves being petted, and will nudge you if you stop. We believe her to be a 2 to 3 year old Shepherd/ Lab mix and her fur is SO soft. Macy is walking well on a leash and only pulls when she gets excited (like seeing another person to greet). She is crate and house trained and knows sit. Macy is doing great at learning manners and is eager to do so. She is very playful and plays well with dogs of all sizes! Macy is such a lover, and enjoys hugs. She thinks she is a 70 pound lap dog that just wants to be near her humans. She is a big softy that is very gentle, calm, and loves to snuggle. Macy likes her toys and chewing on them. Although Macy has not been tested with kids or cats while in foster care, she has the type of personality where we think she would be great with both. She loves everyone and everything and would be a great addition to just about any family. You may apply to adopt Macy at www.pawpatroldayton.com/adopt. Her adoption fee is $285 and she is vaccinated, heartworm tested negative, microchipped, and spayed.

Adoption fee: $285

Raya

Raya is the sweetest, most gentle dog. With a lot of patience, love, and a bit of string cheese, she has become less fearful of new things and is blooming into the dog she was always meant to be. Raya is so sweet, we don't think she would even bite a flea if one were to bite her! (No worries there. She is 101% flea free.) She takes treats with care and plants kisses ever so gingerly. Even when she climbs up onto the couch to cuddle, she does so quietly in a way that won't disturb your current comfy position. Raya is house and crate trained and does good with both dogs and cats. We believe another dog in the home that is confident is what is best for her so she can continue to learn what it's like to be a beloved pet. She likes playing in the snow and running around the yard so a physical fence would be good for her as well. Raya needs a patient forever family that will love the simple beauty she is and will continue to encourage her to come out of her shell. Though she is afraid of everyone and everything at first, she eventually warms up nicely. Raya continues to show trust more each day and we are sure once she is in her forever home she will blossom even more. You may apply for Raya at www.pawpatroldayton.com/adopt. Her adoption fee is $235 and she is spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, and heartworm negative. She is approximately 2 years old and 41 pounds. We aren't sure of her heritage, so we have sent away a DNA test because curious minds want to know and will add that once the results are in.

Adoption fee: $235

Cherry

Shes my Cherry Pie! Do you love something that is sweet but with a little bit of tartness? Then meet 3 month old Cherry Pie. Cherry is still very much a puppy and loves to play. While she is the smallest of her siblings, she is the most courageous and has a lot of spunk! Cherry is doing well with training and going into her crate (it helps if you have some treats or food around to help motivate her). Cherry is a perfect snuggle buddy and is sleeping through the night. This fearless baby is believed to be a Catahoula Leopard/Lab mix. She is currently around 12 pounds but is growing every day! Cherry has so much love to give and would be excited to be your family's little sweet tart! You may apply to adopt Cherry at www.pawpatroldayton.com/adopt. Their adoption fee is $310 and is vaccinated, microchipped and spayed.

Adoption fee: $310

Aoife

Are you looking for something sweet that doesn't have a lot of calories? Well how about a loving animal instead of dessert? Aofie is just as sweet! She is a 5 year old, 66 pound German Shepherd. She is great at commands, she knows sit, release, and is gentle with treats. She is potty trained and crate trained, but does not require being in a crate because she is so well behaved. She is very friendly and loves meeting everyone. It is awesome that she hardly ever even barks, even when someone comes to the door. Her favorite past time is chucking balls back and forth. Need to save money on that heating bill? Don't worry because Aofie is a big snuggler and will keep you warm all winter. Loves car rides. Walks well on leash, but needs re-direction when animals are walking by. She would be better in a house with no cats or other dogs as she likes all the attention to herself. She also has allergies to chicken and came to us looking pretty shabby... but is looking great as her fur grows back in! It is wonderful what sensitive stomach and skin food and medication has done for her! If you would like to add Aoife to your family, you can apply at pawpatroldayton.org/adopt. Her adoption fee is is $235. and this includes microchip, spay, Negative heartworm test, and up to date on vaccinations. Please note, she will need to stay on special food and medication, probably for the rest of her life.

Adoption fee: $235

Izzi

Welcome Izzi to the Paw Patrol gang! Izzi is probably a Chihuahua and/or Brussels Griffon mix who is a senior about 10 years old. Izzi is full of spunk and sass and she is ready to try to wear the pants in her new home. Izzi is on top of her potty training and a pretty quiet little lady except for a little bark to let you know she needs to go outside. We suspect Izzi has been a single pet household kind of girl but is starting to learn how to be nice to her foster dog fur sibling and even one of the two cats as long as she is allowed to be the alpha. She honestly would prefer to be the only dog so she can have ALL the attention. Since she is a bossy girl, a home without kids would be best for Izzi. She is great on a leash and is even crate trained. She is redirected easily and izzi even gets it when you tell her no. I mean, sure, Izzi WANTS to be the boss but she totally knows who is in charge... most of the time. Izzi needs a family who is patient with her to warm up and trust them. She does not understand that she will always have food and water and Izzi can be resource insecure. Izzi values her alone time, but can also be very sweet and cuddly. Izzi thrives off of positive interactions and affirmation. This poor girl recently had surgery to be spayed, have a dental, and remove some cancerous tumors. Unfortunately, the doctor was unable to get them all and does not recommend she go through surgery again to remove the rest. This makes Izzi a hospice adoption, though her adopter is welcome to get a second opinion. Every dog deserves a home to call their own... even if their time left is limited. Because of this, we are asking a low adoption fee. If you think you can be Izzis forever family, you can apply to adopt her at www.pawpatroldayton.com/adopt. Izzi will go home spayed, microchipped, and up to date on vaccines. Izzis adoption fee is $160.

Adoption fee: $160

Dulce

Dulce Tinder profile reads: pint-sized lady with short hair and a big heart hoping for human companionship. Searching for someone who likes long term relationships.
