Furever Home Dog Rescue (FHDR) is an all volunteer rescue group, saving puppies, young and adult dogs from overpopulated, high-kill shelters. We started the rescue in 2009 and I mostly work with a shelter in North Carolina that is overwhelmed with puppies and dogs. There is a volunteer transport that brings the dogs to New Jersey where my fosters and I meet them. Since we do not have a physical shelter in NJ, we place the pups in foster homes here in NJ until they are adopted.
We have a wonderful group of foster families that are carefully screened before they become fosters. Using foster families to provide a temporary home to our pups is very beneficial to us, our adopters and our pups. Living in a home gives us good sense on their behavior, likes, dislikes, needs and personalities so we know what type of furever home is best for the pup. We are then able to give potential adopters information on the pup and choose families that best match the lifestyles of the pups.
Recently, we also started working with shelters from the islands of Puerto Rico, St Maarten, Anguilla, Grand Cayman and St Eustatius.
My adoption process is also very thorough where applicants fill out a detailed questionnaire and I contact relevant references, verify information, home visits or home photos and many other details before awarding a dog to a family.
At Furever Home Dog Rescue, we thank you for considering the adoption of a rescue dog. We understand that you may have other rescue groups to choose from and that is good news for everyone. Why? This year alone, approximately 7 million pets will die in shelters across the US. The more rescue groups finding forever homes for these pups, collectively we can reduce that number of unnecessary deaths significantly.
Why Choose Furever Home Dog Rescue
There are some subtle differences about Furever Home Dog Rescue that we believe benefits our adopters in so many ways:
- Our pups are temperament tested by the shelters and fully vetted by licensed veterinarians prior to being considered for Furever Home Dog Rescue.
- All of our pups are placed in foster homes prior to adoption where our fosters provide further evaluation and house training on our pups.
- Our adopters meet with the foster family and gain valuable insight into the pups behavior toward training, food, interaction with children, dogs, cats, and other very important intangibles.
- We believe this process further benefits our adopters since we match families and pups based on this valuable insight.
Furever Home Dog Rescue is dedicated to saving adoptable dogs from being euthanized at overpopulated, high-kill animal shelters. We find loving, responsible, and permanent furever homes for as many dogs as our volunteer foster families can support. Our goal is to adopt our dogs to homes that meet the personality, lifestyle, or special needs of our dogs. We are a all volunteer group with the sole intent to reduce euthanizing unwanted, homeless, neglected or abused dogs.
