We implemented a Guest Dog Program (GDP) to help kindhearted individuals who have rescued a dog and are in need of assistance with placing him/her in a loving home. We also extend help to those who, in the best interest of their dog, need to place him/her in a new home environment.
DFW Rescue Me is not a shelter, our dogs are either in foster homes or in various boarding facilities. Therefore, we cannot provide a physical place for your dog to stay while waiting for a permanent home. This is due to a shortage of foster homes and the expense of boarding. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit rescue organization and depend on donations to save the lives of dogs at high kill shelters which is our primary mission. We would however like to offer you participation in our adoption program and the benefit of our expertise at finding your dog a loving permanent family.
If you would like to participate in the Guest Dog Program

- After we receive the form we will contact you with details
Our Adoption Process
DFW Rescue Me holds adoption events most weekends which give the dogs exposure to the public. In addition to adoption events, we post pictures and biographies of the dogs on Adopt-A-Pet as well as our website. When we receive interest in one of the dogs from an individual either from a website or at an adoption event, we have them fill out an application online or in person. We check references such as current veterinarian in homes where there are existing pets, landlord checks for size requirements, pet deposit, breed restrictions etc. The next step is conducting a home visit to ensure the dog will be safe in his/her new environment and is compatible with family members and other pets. If all involved are comfortable, a signed contract from the adopter is required stating the new owners are adopting this pet as a companion animal and member of their family. You can take a look at our online adoption application to give you an idea of what we are looking for in a potential adopter.
