Interested in our rescue dogs? The process of adopting a dog from us is simple. 

  1. Browse our Adoptable Dogs list.
  2. If you see one you’re interested in, click the button to apply for that dog.
  3. We will process your application.
  4. After you are approved, we will schedule a time for you and the dog to meet each other!
  5. In the event that you don’t choose the dog after all, you will still be an approved adopter and able to schedule other Meet & Greet sessions.

Our rescue is an all (unpaid) volunteer organization. For each application we receive it takes us approximately 3 hours to review, contact all personal and veterinary references, and make a decision on approval of it. Depending upon volunteer availability, this can take us several days to accomplish, especially when we receive many applications or if we have difficulties reaching references. Your patience is appreciated!

Harlowe

Single, Lovable, Female looking for Companion and Best Friend. Harlowe isn't picky when it comes to love. She is interested in singles, married couples, and even families with older kids. Harlowe enjoys taking walks, going on car rides, kayaking, swimming, and just hanging out. She is amazing at sharing the covers, at helping you watch your calorie intake by taking care of your left over pizza crust, and letting you binge watch what you want to watch on Netflix... even when it isn't what she would have chosen. Harlowe walks well on the leash, knows several commands, is house broken, crate trained and one of the biggest lovers ever. Harlowe is looking for that special home where she can receive all the attention she wants and not have to share it with other dogs... unless it is a puppy... and then she will make an exception. Harlowe is a 5 & 1/2 year old Pit Bull mix and has been vaccinated, micro-chipped, spayed, and is heartworm negative. Harlowe's adoption fee is $150. To meet Harlowe and learn more about our adoption process, go to www.pawpatroldayton.com/adoptable-dogs.

Adoption fee: $150

Merlin

Sweet senior Merlin deserves to have a comfy home and a gentle, loving touch for whatever time he has left. At 12-14 years old... he just wants chew on a bone, take short walks (even just around the yard), and have a soft place to lay his head. Merlin does have some pain in his hips, so he isn't interested in playing with rowdy dogs or little kids and they may hurt him and cause him to be snappy. He doesn't do a lot of steps well and tries to hold it but has an accident occasionally when he can't get out soon enough... poor guy. This Beagle also has a couple of fatty tumors that can't be removed and all we want is to find him a home where he can be kept comfortable to live out his remaining months or years. We believe it is better to have loved and lost than to never have loved them at all. Are you willing to give Merlin the love he so desperately needs and deserves? Merlin's adoption fee is $50 and you can go to www.pawpatroldayton.com/adoptable-dogs to apply for him. Merlin is neutered, up to date on vaccines, microchipped, and is heartworm negative.

Adoption fee: $50

Mufasa thrives with routine and humbly enjoys just hanging out with his people.

She knows Sit and Come and is very smart. Belly rubs and chin scratches are her favorite. Though Stella can be a little shy at first, once she loves you she will always be by your side.

She is learning to like her crate but prefers to be wherever her person is.

This smart girl is learning the proper rules of what is hers an what is not and finding that sharing with other dogs is a good thing. Stella has learned that all 4 paws belong on the floor, loves your attention and likes to play and explore. Stella even knows how to sit for the door and wait for permission to go out.

Hershey Kiss

Hershey Kiss is a beautiful chocolate brown Australian Shepherd/lab mix that had back to back litters at a puppy mill. She is practically a baby herself as she is likely less than 2 years old. Hershey Kiss is good with dogs, kids and loves toys and bones! She can be a bit shy at first but once she trusts you, she loves to be loved on. Because we believe she was a farm dog at the mill... she needs someone who will be gentle with her and patient as she learns how to be a family dog. This sweet girl has come a long way in just a couple of weeks. She really enjoys being outside and has only had one accident in the house. Now that Hershey Kiss has started to cuddle.. she will even ask to be pet by placing her paw on you. We feel it best that Hershey Kiss have a home with other dogs as they give her comfort and continue to teach her how to be a loved dog. We also ask our mill survivors have a fenced in yard so they can feel safe and secure. Do you have the special touch to show her she is safe, loved, and that everything is going to be okay? You may apply to adopt Hershey Kiss at www.pawpatroldayton.com/adoptable-dogs. Her adoption fee is $200 and she is vaccinated, spayed, microchipped, and heartworm negative.
