If you or a friend are planning to adopt a dog and you want to be custom matched, come to our site and take the survey. We will even give you a PET Profile that tells you what kind of pet parent.

Every rescue is different and they all have their own policies. If a rescue lets us know that they require home checks and will only adopt out within their home state, we won’t match you with that dog. But if a rescue is willing to travel or do a Skype interview, you can match and go from there!

I follow so many! Lots of rescues that have great instagrams. There’s one I love called No Dogs Left Behind. They rescue dogs from the meat trade in China. Hard to fathom but it’s really happening.
