We are a small 100% Volunteer run rescue located in Chesapeake, VA. We focus on small scale but quality adoptions. We generally only have 1 or 2 dogs at a time which allows our volunteers to get to know each dog. Our goal is to find the perfect match for each family. We offer a trial period to all of our adoptions. To get started check out our adoption process and policies by clicking here.

Looking for Dogs List

Since BTTR only has a few dogs at a time you can join our Looking for Dogs list by filling out a Pet Match Form or our full Adoption Application. Many of our dogs get adopted off this list before making it to our website.
