Pet ownership is a serious responsibility. The policy of Fetchin’ Retrievers Rescue is to ensure that each person who adopts a dog is aware of the responsibility, and is capable and willing to accept that responsibility morally, physically and financially.
Sometimes people turn to rescue groups because they are interested in finding a dog that can be trained as a service dog, a therapy dog or an emotional support animal.  Rescue dogs often come with needs of their own created by the stress of their former lives or the changes they experience while in rescue.  We want our dogs to have lives as beloved family pets, so we don’t adopt them out to situations that require them to perform a job.

Your wait time to adopt a dog may be longer than expected for a variety of reasons. Homes with children, other dogs, and/or cats will generally experience the longest wait times to find the right match. Your personal circumstances and flexibility are key factors in the process. Our top priority is to find the best homes for our dogs based upon their individual needs and personalities, and we thank you in advance for your patience.
