Sugarfoot Farm has dogs of all shapes, sizes, colors and personalities. We have indoor dogs for those who need a quiet companion. We have dogs that will go hiking and jogging with you and on trips to the lake. We have dogs that will fetch a ball all day long if that's what you want to do. Some of our dogs love to go for rides and would love to go traveling with you. The young dogs are looking for a family to grow old with. The senior dogs will be happy just to have a friend to spend the last few years of their life with.

All dogs adopted from us are spayed or neutered, wormed, and up to date with their vaccinations, including rabies. They are microchippped before they leave which increases their chances of being reunited with their owners. We have you sign an adoption form that states if for any reason you can no longer keep your dog you return it to us with no questions asked. On top of all that we only ask for a donation. The most important thing to us is that the dog finds a family or friend to love furever.

October is Adopt A Shelter Dog Month

October 2 is World Farm Animal's Day, October 14 is Columbus Day and October 16 is National Feral Cat Day, as well as National Boss Day. October 27 is Make a Difference Day and of course October 31 is Halloween. You can help to Make a Difference on October 27 as well as celebrate Adopt A Shelter Dog Month. How you ask? Even if you can't adopt here are some easy ways you can still help:
  • Contact us for a donation, wish list, or flyer you could post around your office or neighborhood
  • Sign up as a foster parent or volunteer, and then tell your friends how great it is
  • Contact us to offer to photograph adoptable pets
  • Donate in honor of Adopt A Shelter Dog Month
  • Pass on an understanding of the importance of pet adoption to the next generation. Talk to your kids, nieces, nephews, grandchildren and other up and comers about animal shelters and why Adopt A Shelter Dog Month, and pet adoption in general, is important
If you are in a position to adopt a shelter dog please be sure you have the time and commitment it takes to own a dog. If you have the dedication for a pet that you need for any family member please adopt and make a difference in a dog's life.- Peg Schaeffer, President and Founder, Sugarfoot Farm Rescue
