Adopting a dog is a lifetime commitment. Every rescue dog comes with an adjustment period and a 10-year plus time commitment. If you are hesitant to keep your dog during good times and bad, during household moves, or family changes, please look no further.

Each dog below has its own story, history, and issues. Some have been dumped in shelters, found roaming the streets, neglected, and/or abused. We make every effort to match a rescue dog with a compatible forever home, but it is up to your new companion to adjust to your home and family. To help ensure a successful placement, we work with our applicants and adopters to answer questions before, during, and after each adoption.

If you live in VA, NC, or MD and are interested in adopting one of these dogs, first read about our adoption process on our Adoption page. Then submit an Application and pay the $30 application fee.

Please feel free to email us any questions about our adoption process at sgsrescue@gmail.com.
