Adoption Events On Hold, Dogs Still Available

In light of our current situation Peppertree Rescue is postponing our adoption events until further notice.

However we do still have some wonderful dogs for adoption and would love to help you find your dog.  If there is a dog on our site that interests you the first step is to put in an application here and let us know you are interested in a certain dog on your application.

If you have an application in, please do not hesitate to call us at 518-435-7425 or e-mail us at rescue@peppertree.org when you see a dog you are interested in.

As always our dogs are placed not on a first come first serve basis, but based on who is the best fit for the dog, so while we do encourage you to be proactive it does take time to go through the process and we appreciate your patience as well.

Thank you and stay safe,

The Peppertree Board
