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.

Where Are All Our Adoptable Dogs?

So many of our dogs get adopted off our ":Looking for Dogs" List before ever making it to this page! Since we only have a few dogs at a time that may mean this page is blank. If you are looking for an adoptable dog and don't see a match here fill out a Pet Match Form or Adoption Application below!

Meet Peppa

She is a 7-9 year old 15lb Beagle/Chihuahua mix

Peppa is a tiny 15 pound 7-9 year old Beagle possibly Chihuahua mix. We called her Peppa since on arrival she was pink like a pig, had no fur and likes to snort. She is great with cats, kids and other dogs. She was surrendered after her owner died and the family was unable to care for her due to her allergies. She has been with us since Thanksgiving and is looking for an amazing home of her own. 

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.
