Adoption Application

We are a not-for-profit organization of volunteers dedicated to saving Miniature Schnauzers which have fallen on hard times.  Sometimes young, healthy dogs come to us, but often they are dogs that were strays, have suffered an emotional loss, an illness, abuse, neglect, or have been surrendered by their owners for a variety of reasons. When we save a dog, we help heal their illnesses and their wounds under the direction of local veterinarians. All of our adoptable minis have been given a wellness exam, spayed or neutered, given annual shots, tested for heartworms and treated if necessary, tested and treated for other parasites, provided necessary dental care, and micro chipped. In our foster homes, we provide love, security, and work with these dogs to correct any bad behaviors to get them ready for a new home. Our goal is to help get them healthy, happy, well-adjusted and ready for a new family.

We evaluate our dogs to determine what type of home environment would work best for them, and then do our best to match each dog to a wonderful adopter. In every case, we will choose the adopter based on what is best for the dog. We are very proud of our success rate in matching adoptable minis to the right family so that you and your new “best friend” will live happily ever after!

Our adoption fee is a $300 tax-deductible donation. This defrays only a small portion of our expenses for the medical care we provide every Miniature Schnauzer we rescue, rehabilitate and rehome. We also treat minis which require extraordinary care, including treatment by veterinary specialists, or necessary surgeries and medications.

Please note: We don’t ship or allow 3rd party transport of any of our dogs. We do not allow our dogs to travel in the cargo compartment of an airplane. To be considered, you will need to travel to our area to meet the dog and we would require you and everyone in the household AND current pets to come meet the dog. It also could take multiple trips to find the right dog. Additional distance restrictions may also apply. You will be contacted and required to submit photos of your home and yard for review.

Thank you for your interest in Miniature Schnauzer Rescue of North Texas.
