ECAAHome Fire

We could use your help!

  • We rescue dogs. But, sometimes… The dogs rescue us – literally. On June 13th, the President of East Coast Adoptions, Sarah and her husband Matt Hill were sleeping and heard a loud pop and their dog Wes started growling. Matt headed downstairs to see that their deck was engulfed in flames.
  • Matt and Sarah were able to get all 6 of their rescue dogs out of the house but, within minutes their home turned into an inferno. Having no cell service Sarah drove up the road to a neighbors house to call the fire department. As she left the house she heard one explosion after another as the windows of the house blew out. They lost everything,.

Sarah and Matt are grateful for the first responders who came and showed such compassion at their time of total devastation. They are so thankful to all their friends who came and helped them sift through the rubble of their home. Sarah and Matt are most thankful to Wes, who saved their lives, and the lives of their 5 other rescue dogs. Sarah’s mom, (herself a foster with East Coast Adoptions)has set up a goFundMe page if you would care to help Sarah and Matt get back on their feet after this devastating event. East Coast Adoptions is continuing it’s mission to save the lives of dogs in danger through our wonderful network of fosters. We just may have fewer dogs available for a short while until Sarah and Matt can get back to normal… Thanks for your help and for your time in reading this message.

Dogs In Danger Rescue, Inc.
East Coast Adoption Agency

When Dogs in Danger Rescue, Inc. started 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.


Dogs In Danger Rescue (we are not is our rescue originally based in Maryland but, since we expanded to 4 other states, we are now doing business as (DBA) East Coast Adoption Agency and now we use USDA certified transporters, and are proud to be a 501c3 non-profit agency that saves many lives each year.
