PLEASE NOTE THAT WE ARE LOCATED IN WELLINGTON, FL. Big Dog Ranch Rescue is a not-for-profit organization that assists displaced dogs in finding new homes. Right now we are transitioning to a new facilty and must drastically lower our intake for the next few months. Filling out our surrender form does not guarantee that we can take your dog. Someone from our team will contact you if we are able to accept your surrendered dog.
We consider educating the public about the dogs, to be just as important. Our goal is to keep as many dogs as we can, out of rescue and shelters and in the loving arms of their families.
Most people who contact us erroneously, think they would be doing their dog a huge favor by finding him a home that “has more time for him" or "can give him the home he deserves.” In actuality, most dogs are better off remaining in the home they know and love, if their owners can provide 15 minutes a day of attention, a safe environment, food and water.
Did you acquire him as a puppy from a breeder?
Did you acquire your Dog from a Rescue Organization?
New baby in the family?
Think you don’t have enough time for your dog?
Are there behavioral issues?
Experiencing financial issues?
If you haven’t found any solutions after carefully considering the information above, then you are welcome to fill out the form below. We are always at capacity at the Ranch so we may not be able to take your dog but we review all applications. We receive many each day and only reply to those we can take, but it may take up to a week to hear from us.
Thank you. We realize this is a difficult decision and we wish you all the best.
