Two reputable websites for schnauzer rescue are SchnauzerRescue.net and SchnauzerRescue.com. SchnauzerRescue.net features miniature schnauzers in Virginia, Delaware, Pennsylvania and Washington, D. C. Visitors to the website can apply online to adopt a dog that has been previously placed in a foster home.
Adoptions are limited to people who live within a reasonable distance in order to facilitate an introductory meeting and follow-up. Most rescue schnauzers are over the age of 3, and many are 5 years or older. The adoptees are evaluated by a veterinarian for medical clearance and full disclosure is provided.
At SchnauzerRescue.com, a completed application and home screening is required before adopting. The site features a photo gallery, information about successful adoptions, and red flag listings of puppy mills.
