We are a small rescue group in Massachussettes, New Jersey, Maryland, Delaware, and New York that takes in pets from high kill shelters in rural areas before they are euthanized. We are a no-kill rescue and feel that once we’ve made a verbal commitment to an animal, it’s a lifetime commitment on our part. We feel that any adoptions from us make you a part of our family, and we keep our doors open to you for a lifetime. We only euthanize for health problems that have eliminated an animal’s quality of life and there is little to no chance of ever recovering, or in rare cases of extreme aggression that could not be corrected after extended rehabilitation. When we started the rescue in 2007, we used to drive 12 hour days to save homeless animals, and bring them back to our houses. Now 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 is our rescue base in MD, but since we expanded we DBA East Coast Adoption Agency. Also, not to be confused with Dogsindanger.com.

We only rescue our dogs from high kill shelters and southern rescues. Which means a majority of dogs admitted there, are euthanized due to lack of space. We very rarely take in owner surrenders, and do not aquire animals from anywhere else besides these shelters we have worked with for years. Our dogs currently in foster, are kept in large play pens, indoors, with plenty of toys, food, water and blankets. We believe that fostering should be a positive experience for the dog, and adopting should be an smooth, wonderful experience for you.

Update! – Evan

Hi Sarah I just wanted to give you a quick update on Evan. He is now 6 months old and quite a ham- he loves the outdoors he prefers to sit on the lawn and smell the roses of his great life – he loves to travel and he loves to hike in the woods. He has learned to walk on a leash, and sit (sit on command and using hand signals). He can jump up for a treat and is learning paw and down. He loves kids and playing with his brother Adam Thank you again for such a great new friend and family member, he is a joy!

Update! – Ruger
My husband and I adopted Ruger (when adopted his name was Blaze) in May and just wanted to send you some updated pictures of him and with his big brother Storm, whom he loves to follow around the house.  Ruger is 4 months old now and is doing wonderful.  He is so smart and was potty trained in no time and knows were we keep his food so when he is hungryy he sits in front of the pantry door.  His personality is lovable and he gets excited when family and friends come over. This was our first time adopting a dog and it was a wonderful experience and I have recommended your rescue to numerous people who have thought about adopting. My brother-in-law and his girlfriend adopted a female sibling the day after we adopted Ruger so we will be sending pictures of the two of them together soon also.
Thank you,
