Wet Nose Rescue is an all breed dog rescue, founded in 2008 based in Southampton, Pennsylvania. Our Adoption Center is located at 14425 Bustleton Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19116

Welcome to Wet Nose Rescue, we are an all breed dog rescue, founded in 2008 based in Southampton, Pennsylvania.  We have an adoption center, however we do not kennel dogs there, instead our adoptable dogs and puppies are kept in local foster homes which allows them to become socialized with families and not kept in a kennel while waiting to be adopted. We try and keep the adoption process as simple as possible and match adoptable dogs with loving and caring families.  Our Adopt, Shop and Training Center is located at 14425 Bustleton Avenue, Philadelphia, PA  19116.  Our hours at the Adoption Center are by appointment only   If you have any questions about adopting a dog or puppy, please feel free to call us at 267-684-6187.

Mark your calendar, Saturday December 4th 2021 join us for our annual Holiday event at our Adoption Center Walking In A Furry Wonderland, 11:00am to 3:00pm, pictures with Santa and your furry friend for a small donation, our "Ask The Trainer" Table will be there to speak with one of our trainers and find out about classes and find out about volunteering and fostering and as always, food and great raffles will be available and our shop area will be open for animal oriented Holiday gifts, so please join us.  Due to Philadelphia regulations masks will be required.

A COVID-19 update. Adoptions are taking place as usual during this period of time with some minor changes being made to the adoption process.  After you are approved to adopt, we will set up a time to speak with you by phone prior to the adoption to answer any questions you may have and go over medical histories and explain how to prepare for the arrival of your new friend.  An adoption time will be assigned and we ask that you wear a mask upon arrival and bring a towel if you are adopting a puppy.  You will receive all your paperwork upon arrival and sign the adoption agreement at that time, we are doing our best to make certain the adoption process runs as smoothly as possible during this period of time.

Wet Nose Rescue Adoption Center

Wet Nose Rescue works hard to help those who are unable to help themselves.  Our goal is to help abandoned dogs and puppies that would otherwise be euthanized or subject to a life in extremely poor conditions, unloved and neglected.

  • I looked at the caged animals in the shelter. . . the cast offs of human society. I saw in their eyes, love and hope, fear and dread, sadness and betrayal and I was angry.
    “God” I said, “this is terrible. Why don't you do something…?”
    God was silent for a moment and then he spoke softly. “I have done something” he replied, “I created you.”
