Avon Adoptions is a small non-profit group that works to save the lives of great dogs who are in clear danger of being euthanized if they remain in their present situation. If space permits, we also take in dogs whose owners can no longer keep them. Priority is given to dogs coming from pounds and shelters. While we occasionally have puppies, our focus tends to be on adult dogs. Because we are a small rescue, we limit the number of dogs with whom we work. Dogs are fostered as family members in our home, which allows us to assess their personalities, complete medical care, and begin basic training. We do not keep foster dogs in a kennel or shelter type situation, so we only invite families in to meet a dog after they have been pre-screened and determined to potentially be the best match for the pup available.
