Available Breeds

Adopt

Because SPDR’s rescue approach relies on volunteers we call Breed Reps, adopting a dog through us depends on whether we have a Rep for your preferred breed.

Why Breed Reps? Learn more >

Even when we do have a Breed Representative, availability of that breed of dog varies from month to month. Once you submit an adoption application for a represented breed, the Breed Rep will work with you to locate your preferred dog.

Note: dogs available for adoption through SPDR can be any age and come from a variety of backgrounds. SPDR requires all dogs to be spayed or neutered prior to adoption.
