If you have visited the ‘Adopt’ menu tab to see the available pets page (on Petfinder), you may have noticed that God’s Dogs Rescue is working with other Texas rescues (who also list their fosters under God’s Dogs Rescue.) Although we rescue from the San Antonio area, we are adopting to qualified families in the Pacific Northwest and Northeast through alliances with dedicated rescuers there. Visit Your TX Rescue Connection to find out more!

Approximately 90% of the dogs and puppies we save have no easily identifiable breed history (They don’t carry their ID card 🙂 )
We use many ways to help identify the breed mixes they may be i.e. size, temperament, appearance, special characteristics.
However, on the streets of San Antonio many, many, many dogs wander around unaltered, so the possibilities are literally endless…
We will give you our best estimate of what their breed mix is as well as their own individual characteristics and what we feel their approximate size and weight will be when grown.

Thank you for understanding, AND THANK YOU for adopting!!!
We couldn’t do this without YOU!

Your dog will come with the microchip implanted already and the tag/microchip number attached to the vet paperwork. Please call the number/go to the website on the tag to put your information into their database. Until you do that, your dog is still registered to Texas!!

Please check all that apply

Put the rabies tag, microchip tag and a tag you can purchase at any Petsmart/Walmart (with your dog’s name & your contact information) onto their new collar immediately! Then if the dog gets scared/bolts soon after adoption, ALL your contact information is there and the finder can contact you quickly!!! Thank you.

Please read and check each of the following to acknowledge.

I agree to take adult dogs to the vet within 30 days OR puppies within 1-2 weeks of adoption and will continue heartworm & flea prevention and /or well care.
I agree to foster this dog if there is any reason the dog is not adjusting well. I agree to foster until the dog can be rehomed and to contact Your TX Rescue Connection immediately with this issue.
I agree to release rescue organization from liability for this animal\'s care and behavior once I adopt and receive the dog/puppy.
I agree that this is a rescue dog, and most likely a stray. Therefore I understand that the rescue has no knowledge of the dog’s abilities beyond our experience with the dog in our foster homes. I also understand that the dog comes with limited medical history.
I agree to pay the adoption fee immediately unless other terms are agreed upon. Payment is to be made to the (Rescue) appropriate Paypal address.
If I cancel adoption and transport is already in route, Rescue will refund only a portion of the adoption fee only – not the transport fee, which is determined by transport not rescue.
If I cancel adoption within 24 hours prior to transport a fee of $100 will be retained by rescue due to potential loss of qualified adopter.
Transport will be arranged by Rescue and communication will be continued with your adoption counselor when the dogs are on their way to you!!

By completing and submitting this digital form, you agree to be bound by the terms stated above.
