Why Should I
When you adopt a dog, not only do you save that dog's life, but in turn you have freed up a foster's home for another rescue, which then saves the life of another dog in the shelter, allowing another high risk dog a place of refuge.
Are you currently in the middle of our adoption process?
Ready to adopt your newest family member? Let's get started!
Our goal is to make a match between your family and the perfect dog. We want happy dogs and happy humans, living together and loving each other in a “forever home.”
We recognize that each family has different needs and we will work with you to match the personality of the dog with your needs, so that you get the right dog. Our application may seem extensive, but don’t let that discourage you in any way. It is not a test! We are simply doing our best to find the right match for you.
$ 350 -$600*
Our adoption fees vary based on various factors such as the dog's age, size, length of transport ( from Texas, Korea, etc.) and more
*The fees above are fixed fee donations and can be paid by check, cash, or paypal. In some cases we may charge more for a dog that is in such high demand.
What is Included in the Adoption Fee?
Up to date on shots
Flea and Tick Prevention
Health certification from Vet
Additional vet check on arrival in NJ
Free well puppy check after adoption
Free pet insurance with PetPlan for one month (free month not offered in NY or PA as those states have discontinued the program)
Partially tax deductible, because we are a 501(c)3
** Matchdog Rescue will cover the cost of two rounds of HeartWorm treatment only. Any HeartWorm preventatives needed during the treatment period can only be obtained through MatchDog Rescue.
