A licensed rescue must pay for vetting, miscellaneous fees, possible transport, and food. The average rescue can hold a select number of animals, making the foster and adoption process crucial to many animal’s lives.


Registered transporters are needed either by car or plane. These transporters bring the dogs from the rescue to the foster or shelter, giving the dogs non-permanent homes. Without this step in the process, the dogs would in great danger of euthanasia.

An independent trucker has transported 2000+ dogs in one year from the southeast United States to the northeast United States to “furever” homes.


The fosters are needed to hold animals until they recuperate or are adopted.  Many foster dogs result in a “foster failure,” which is when the foster family falls madly in love with the foster dog and decides to adopt him/her!


Adoption is a key process in American Dog Ranch’s mission to end dog euthanasia. Our goal is to have American Dog Ranch iPads featured in different pet stores, grooming centers, or anything related, that show different dogs up for adoption based on age, location, and breed. We strive to create awareness about dog adoption because we believe there are many people out there who don’t know dog adoption exists. Involuntary dog euthanasia would drastically lower if more people adopted each year.


This is where American Dog Ranch comes in. We promise to ranch any dogs that are up for involuntary euthanasia until they find furever homes, or for the rest of their lives. Until we are able to build American Dog Ranch sites in major NFL cities, we will team up with American Dog Ranch Approved rescues and fosters to ranch dogs and keep them alive and well. If your rescue or foster wants to become American Dog Ranch approved and support our journey to end involuntary dog euthanasia, please contact us via phone or email (located in the Contact Us tab above). American Dog Ranch gives construction grants to those rescues or no kill shelters who wish to expand capacity.  To view the current American Dog Ranch Approved sites or donate to these sites, click on the American Dog Ranch Approved tab above.  You may also donate to the new American Dog Ranch cart located within the DONATE tab in the menu above.
