We have a wonderful history of many rescued, vetted, evaluated, and rehomed schnauzers. These handsome and beautiful faces only represent a small number of those we have saved. We have literaally saved thousands. If you have been sitting on the fence with your decision to get involved and help us in our noble undertaking, what are you waiting for?  We always need foster homes and people to transport and do home visits. Sometimes we also need people to fill adminstrative and clerical positions too. Just go up to the menu bar and the applications tap to apply.  Fill out the foster form and if you only want to transport or do home visits just note that on your application. We treasure our SLR family of dedicated volunteers!

Not all schnauzers are good with children.  They tend to be very protective dogs. Also some of our sweet ones have been abused or neglected in their past and require the predictability and security of an all adult home. This is one of the reasons we test all our dogs in a foster home for usually at least 2 weeks so we can get to know if the new foster is child friendly. But even a child friend dog needs to go to a home where the children have been taught the proper way to interact with a dog and to respect the dog and treat it always with a gentle hand. Parents need to monitor any new dog that comes into the home for a few weeks even if the schnauzer is child friendly until a routine is establish and there is a record of respectful and trusting interaction. These pictures clear show the bond that can be between a child and a schnauzer.

hinking 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.

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 have been brought up to date on their shots, checked for worms, tested for heart 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 quite often don't cover all the vetting fees, especially when there are additional procedures we feel are necessary 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. This also takes time.

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