Thinking of adopting a rescue Schnauzer?

Please give some thought to the commitment you are about to make.

  • Many rescues come to us from difficult situations that involve rehabilitating them to one degree or another.  Some have housebreaking or marking issues, others need socialization and ALL of them need a period of adaptation after going to their forever homes.

  • If you are expecting a perfect dog when adopting a rescue, you're at the wrong place.  All these rescues can become wonderful companions.  It depends on how much time YOU are willing to spend with them.  Obedience or agility classes are always a great way to bond with your new companion.

  • Many rescues going to a new home will have accidents initially.  Having been uprooted at least twice, they will be nervous, - the same way you would be if someone placed you in a totally strange environment.  It's a time of transition for them and it is often frightening, even though you may have much love to offer.  They will need some understanding and time to adjust to their new homes.   

  • If all you want is to feel good because you rescued a Schnauzer, please don't  waste  the precious time our volunteers  spend finding good homes for these wonderful rescues.

SLR-pencilPLEASE ALSO REMEMBER...

Schnauzer Love Rescue is an organization of volunteers, most of whom have full time jobs in addition to doing rescue work.  They dedicate a great amount of personal time to ensure these rescues get the second chance they deserve.

All dogs coming into our rescue program receive a full veterinary examination, are brought up to date on their shots, checked for worms, and are spayed or neutered before we release them to their forever homes.  This is done at considerable expense to our organization.  The adoption fees often don't cover all the vetting fees, especially when there are additional procedures required to restore the dog's health.

Our rescues are always fostered for a period of time to determine their temperament.  This helps us ensure we find a suitable home that will result in a forever match.  This takes time.  We also do a Home Visit with the adopting family to ensure a good match, and to ensure the safety of our pets in their new homes.  All this takes time.

Please be patient so we can find the right Schnauzer for you.
