Our mission is to save stray, abandoned, shelter, and owner surrender dogs of all breeds and ages by placing them in qualified, caring, lifelong homes. The ultimate goal of DSR is to develop a network of united supporters to transform as many unwanted dogs as possible into companion pets in appropriate homes.
Our adoption process starts with completion of our adoption application. Our adoption process also includes a vet reference check, interview, home visit and/or meet and greet with family members. If you already have other animals in the home and have picked the perfect pet for you, we also require a pet meet and greet so we can ensure that we feel the pets will love each other as much as you love them. The pre-approval process does take several days so we appreciate you understanding that our dedication to being thorough is so that we can ensure our dogs go to the best homes for them. Our adoption fee is $450.

In 1982 I went to a dog pound looking for a dog that had been advertised for adoption. I came out instead with a smelly, cross-eyed pooch that I had to bathe three times to see her actual colors. She was so afraid that she wouldn't even walk out of that pound. I had to carry her. This trembling little bundle was only about three or four months old but she had been eating food out of broke
