Sweet Dream House Rescue, Inc. is a non-profit, no kill, all volunteer, all breed animal rescue. Our shelter is staffed and run entirely by volunteers. We also utilize a network of foster homes for pets ready for adoption. Our mission is to rescue homeless and abandoned animals, to spay/neuter, vaccinate and provide any needed medical care until they are adopted into loving homes. We are often the rescue of last resort, waiting until other rescues select from the euthanasia lists to rescue those that are not selected.
We have two ways to adopt a dog: 1) Foster to adopt. You are permitted to take the dog home for a trial visit of up to one week at your home (longer if necessary is also possible). This will help you determine if you and the dog are the right match. If yes, then the following weekend you can finalize the adoption at the Newport or Tri County Petsmart. If no, then you return the dog to us at Newport or Tri County Petsmart and you are welcome to try a different dog. You will need to complete the necessary paperwork and pay a $40 fee (cash,check, or credit card). This fee is non-refundable, and will be applied to the adoption fee if you decide to finalize the adoption. 2) Outright Adoption. If you're sure you've found the right dog, you complete the necessary paperwork, pay the adoption fee in full (cash, check, or credit card only) and take the dog home. You receive all the dogs health records that we have available to us. Our adoption fee is $200 for most dogs, $225 for puppies. Fee INCLUDES: the dog's spay/neuter surgery, parvo/distemper shots and rabies shots (for dogs over 6 months), deworming, microchipping, flea and tick protection, heartworm testing (for dogs over 6 months), and monthly heartworm protection until the dog gets adopted.
