Thinking About Adopting?

There are lots of things to consider when thinking about adding a new family member to your home, and even more things to do to prepare once you have made the decision.

Below are some links we ask all our adopters to read prior to adoption.

Although DTR is a no kill shelter, and only euthanizes in cases of illness or behavior that are deemed unmanageable, unsafe, untreatable or leading to poor quality of life, and NEVER simply for space constraints, adopting from us allows us to save another dog who is at risk in the greater Philadelphia area, and beyond.

We post all our dogs on social media and leading adoption websites, as they become available.  We try to keep all information and dogs posted current but the rescue is all volunteer led so sometimes we lag a little behind.
