Welcome to Peyton's Place Animal Rescue...

Rescue. Advocate. Educate.

Mission Statement

Peyton’s Place Animal Rescue is dedicated to rescuing small domesticated animals that come from a variety of situations, be it a kill shelter, partner rescue group or an individual that can no longer care for their pet. We are committed to ensure animals that come into our group are fully vetted and have clean bills of health before finding them the best possible home.

We are a registered 501(c)(3) non profit. We do not take salaries. Every dollar goes to the animals.

How you can help:

Screening Applications: We need volunteers that can call references for applications we receive of both potential fosters and adopters. This entails calling references, landlords, checking social media sites and setting up home visits. This can be done right from the comfort of your home! 

Home Visits: Home visits are are crucial part of the adoption process. We will not allow an animal to be adopted without a home visit and we do not accept photos of someone’s home in lieu of a home visit. A home visit typically takes 15-30 minutes. There is a standard form to be followed while at the home to ensure the pet is going to a home suitable for its needs. We want to make sure that this adoption is a perfect fit for the family and the animal. Whenever possible, we prefer the animal to attend the home visit. When an older animal, it is imperative that the animal be there during the visit. For younger dogs and puppies, it is not required. 

Adoption events: We will be hosting adoption events when we start picking up and will need people there for a couple of hours to take applications and talk to people about our animals. Having a positive presence in the community and at the events is crucial to the success of our rescue and the animals that need us. 

Fostering: Fosters are critical to the success of PPAR and the well being of the animals we serve. Each animal that goes into foster opens kennel space for another animal in need, and is often times literally the difference between life and death for that animal. All you need to foster is the ability to offer a stable environment to an animal as it waits for its forever home. Sometimes a foster will be with you for a week or two; sometimes the placement process takes a few months. While fostering might seem daunting at first, it’s important to understand that you are never in it alone. Foster coordinators work to find the dog or cat that best matches your home. We offer ongoing support to all of our fosters and we have someone available 24/7 for emergencies. Along with food and veterinary care, helpful items like crates and toys are supplied. Fosters will be asked to bring their foster to adoption events at least 2 times per month.

Perhaps the most often-asked question about fostering is, “How do you say goodbye to your foster when it’s time?” While some fosters realize that their home is the right match for the animal they are fostering, most discover that the greatest joy comes when their charge finds its forever family. When your foster animal leaves to go to its forever home its always a bittersweet event. But knowing that successful fostering saves the lives of multiple animals and helps complete families makes saying goodbye much more“sweet” than “bitter”.

In Need of Fosters

ATTN: We received a plea to take this 8 year old hound! He is super gentle & low energy & very friendly. His name is George! He is great with other dogs. He needs to put on a few pounds. Comes vetted with rabies and heart worm and vaccines. If you have EVER thought about fostering an older dog, George would be the perfect guy to be your “first” and he is in need. And seriously, he is a hound – they are the best!

PLEASE share and share and apply to foster asap! Time is limited for transport for George!

Look at this face 🙁

Everyone meet Toby! He is up for adoption!! This older gent is just too sweet for words! This is what his foster mama has to say: Toby is a sweet old man who wants to be by your side at all times, whether its on the couch sitting next to you or following you around the house. He is potty trained and walks like a gentleman on the leash. He is crate trained and at night sleeps in his little bed in our bedroom. He would be best with a calm, submissive dog, but wouldn’t mind being the only dog in the house to soak up all the attention.
Please share to find Toby an amazing home to spend the rest of his years ❤️❤️❤️ He is on some meds for a touch of arthritis, but other than that our vet gave him a clean bill of health!

Happy life Bella! This girl came to us after we received a call in the middle the night that she was hit by a car. She had quite a recovery but ultimately she is winding up in the best possible place! Her new daddy lost his little Yorkie A few months ago and his heart was broken. He was looking for another little girl but no other rescues got back in touch with him. It just so happened that he had asked our awesome manager at Petsmart if she knew of any and she put him in touch with us. Bella had not even been posted for adoption yet and already her new daddy found her. He visited her a few times while she was still recovering from her leg injury and once she was all better, he made her part of his family. We are so happy for you Bella! And thank you to everybody that contributed to the fundraiser we did for her leg care. It helped us tremendously! We appreciate every dime! ... See MoreSee Less
