Dog Rescue & Dog Training
Dunkin is still waiting for his forever family for OVER A YEAR! We just don't understand why?! Dunkin is good with other dogs, kids and loves the ladies (he’s does require a small warm up period to men). No cats for this guy - he finds them fun to chase. He is our special boy and adopters need to know that with being diagnosed with Spina Bifida that he cannot control his bowels or bladder and needs to wear a diaper/belly band indoors (outside he LOVES to be naked and sunbathe, chase lizards and play ball). Please give him a chance!
The adoption fee includes: spay/neuter, microchip, vaccinations, and heartworm treatment (if applicable)
All interested adopters are required to do an application and home check before completing the adoption process. Before finishing the adoption contract, we have a 14-day foster to adopt contract to ensure the dog is a perfect fit for your home and family. We are open to adopting outside of SWFL if you pass the application/home check and we feel that this dog will suit your lifestyle.
If you'd like to help Doghouse Rescue academy with their vet bills and other animals in our care, please donate to our PayPal Giving Fund. Any amount is always appreciated!
We are Doghouse Rescue Academy - a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization focused on helping make the world around us a better, happier place. With the help of our tireless staff, we organize fundraisers, events, and in-depth training sessions for our community & volunteers. The majority of Doghouse Rescue Academy's dogs from rural shelters like Clewiston, Glades, and Bowling Green County that get vetted, rehabilitated, and re-homed with our foster trial adoption process.
Anyone interested in adopting is required to do a 14-day foster trial where we supply all the food, supplies, and vetting and the adopter only needs to focus on just bonding. Once the trial is over and we feel that you would be a good fit for this dog, that is when you sign the adoption contract and pay the adoption fee.
Please keep in mind, that because of our extensive adoption process and being a 100% volunteer-run group, we limit our adoptions to the Southwest Florida area (we do a home check, foster trial, meetups, etc.). If your application is approved, we will get back with you. We appreciate your cooperation and patience!
We do not have a shelter facility to house the dogs - all of our dogs are in foster homes around Southwest Florida.
If you are interested in meeting a dog, please complete an Adoption Application to start the process. Once you are approved, one of the staff members will get in touch with you to schedule a meet and greet.
FEED YOUR PET 100% HUMAN GRADE DOG FOOD
We have a bone to pick with most mass-produced, feed-grade pet food brands. They use words like “natural” and “healthy” for feed-grade products that are far from acceptable to us. To ensure your pets eat the safest, healthiest and highest quality foods, insist on 100% human-grade. It’s a real standard no feed-grade food can claim.
Any purchase of Honest Kitchen dog food through Doghouse Rescue Academy helps feed our dogs too!
