Under the guidelines issued by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Wet Nose Rescue is continuing to adopt out dogs during this period however we are adhering to a very strict protocol to prevent very minimal contact with adopters and using safety items such as gloves and masks. Our adoption center is currently closed to the public. We have received many offers from the public to foster our dogs and puppies and greatly appreciate the outpouring of support, if you have submitted an application to foster and have not heard back from us it is simply because we have been overwhelmed by the number of applications. At this point we are totally covered with foster families. We want to thank Governor Tom Wolf in finding animal care and rescue so important as to allow it to continue in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania during this difficult time.
Welcome to Wet Nose Rescue, Wet Nose Rescue is an all breed dog rescue, founded in 2008 based in Southampton, Pennsylvania and is a totally foster based organization Our dogs and puppies for adoption are kept in foster homes as we try and find them forever families. This way our adoptable dogs and puppies have a chance to interact with families who usually have dogs of their own. While we have an adoption center, we do not kennel dogs there. We try and keep the adoption process as simple as possible and match adoptable dogs with loving and caring families. The adoption application is located on this website on the dogs for adoption page. Our Adopt, Shop and Training Center is located at 14425 Bustleton Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19116 our entrance is on Philmont Avenue. Our adoption center offers adopters the opportunity to purchase all their needs in one spot as well as sign up for dog training classes on site. 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.
Effective September 1, 2019 our adoption fees will be increasing slightly due to pull fees we must pay from the shelters we work with to bring the dogs and puppies here, medical expenses, and rental increases at our adoption center. We have tried to keep this increase as minimal as possible. Puppies six months and under will increase from $200 to $250 at the time of adoption plus a $50 deposit for spay/neuter. The total cost to the adopter at the time of adoption will be $300. The $50 deposit will be returned once we receive proof that the puppy has been spayed or neutered unless the adopter chooses to donate that amount to Wet Nose Rescue. Dogs over six month that have already been spayed or neutered will be $250. We appreciate your understanding in this matter.
