Fetching Hope Rescue represents an all volunteer canine rescue group whose mission is to save the lives of neglected, abused and/or stray dogs by finding them safe, loving, and permanent homes in New England. Please complete the following application in its entirety. This application is designed to help us assist you in finding the right dog for your family. We will check vet or personal references provided and then have a volunteer contact you for a home visit. Animals are not short-term commitments. Make sure your lifestyle allows the time, patience and expense this pet will need over the years before completing this application. An adoption fee in the amount of $425 for puppies (16 weeks and under) and $375 for all others, unless specifically marked, is due at time of adoption and this covers previous expenses of the dog- appropriate vaccinations, altering, microchipping and transportation fees. We have a State of Maine permit and are an approved 501 (c) (3.)
