A rescue dog is most often found in a shelter or humane society. On
occasion, AWSRI may receive information about a neglected or abused dog
in a private home. While AWSRI has no authority to remove a dog from a
home, we will collaborate with local authorities when possible. We will
also contact the private owner to assist them with the care of their
pet. Rescue tries to gather as much information as possible before
bringing a dog into rescue. These questions also aid in placing the dog
in the proper foster home. AWSRI also will accept owner surrender dogs
who meet the stated criteria.

The adoption fee is $250. This fee helps cover veterinary costs for all
dogs in the program.
Any dog adopted from AWSRI will be spayed or neutered and completely up
to date on vaccinations. All dogs are micro-chipped and have a
completed temperament evaluation which can be shared with the
interested adoption party.
AWSRI is sometimes able to accept owner surrenders into the rescue
program. There are many reasons people request to surrender their dogs.
