By adopting a companion animal, you are not only saving a life, but bringing a loving animal into your home to be part of your family.


Adoption is so important, as there are simply not enough homes for all the animals that are born every year. Adopting from ISWMP helps open up space at shelters for the 8 to 12 million dogs, cats, puppies and kittens are euthanized every single year because there are simply not enough homes for them. When you adopt, you can get any breed or age of companion animal you want, just as you could with a breeder, or you can be open to meeting one that is just the best fit for your lifestyle.

ISWMP rescues animals from city & county shelters, abusive situations, or homeless animals that have no where else to turn, so we may help them find their forever homes. We work with each animal we rescue to assess their individual needs (medical care, training, etc) so they are ready to become part of a family.

Think you may be ready to adopt? Please contact us at if you feel you may be ready to adopt so we can discuss the kind of dog or cat who is right for you.

Year to Date 2019: more than 300 rescues & 250 adoptions

In addition to connecting animals to adoptive homes, we have teamed up with Marley’s Mutts, Greendog Foundation and Deity Animal Rescue Foundation for rescue missions and Live Shelter Adoption Events. Our “OPT TO ADOPT” event is a unique opportunity for rescues, networkers and adopters to work together, create awareness and save as many lives as possible.


How you can help:

For every $400 raised, we are able to save one life. This includes the animal shelter adoption fees, transportation, veterinary needs, and foster day-to-day expenses the rescue pup may need. No donation is too small and is greatly appreciated!


You can also donate by purchasing items from our Amazon Wish List which will help in rescuing these dogs.
