Welcome to East Coast Adoption Agency

Dogs In Danger, Inc. DBA East Coast Adoption Agency is made up of volunteer fosters (so there are multiple locations to visit available dogs) and not just one central location. If you think you may be interested in a particular dog now or in the future, please fill out an application form. People with approved application forms are prioritized over people who haven’t yet applied.

We are a small rescue group operating in the Massachusetts, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and New York area that only rescues dogs from high kill shelters and southern rescues. This means a majority of dogs admitted there are euthanized due to lack of space. We very rarely take in owner surrenders, and do not acquire animals from anywhere else besides these shelters we have worked with for years.

When we started the rescue in 2007, our collective mission was clear: save at-risk dogs from high-kill shelters and place them in loving, forever homes for the benefit of the dogs and humans alike.  We believe the best way to end pet overpopulation and animal cruelty is a unified front with local shelters, other rescue groups and the community. We were so committed to this that we used to drive 12 hour days to save homeless animals, and bring them back to our houses. Now we use USDA certified transporters, and we are proud to be a 501c3 non-profit agency that saves many lives each year. Dogs In Danger Rescue (we are not dogsindanger.com) is our rescue originally based in Maryland but, since we expanded to 4 other states, we are now DBA East Coast Adoption Agency.
