Operation Paws for Homes

10408737_10153235881699513_6332608552967883153_nWe foster dogs through Operation Paws for Homes (OPH). OPH is a network of foster homes throughout parts of Virginia, Maryland, and Southern Pennsylvania. These really cool people rescue dogs from high kill shelters in North and South Carolina, plus Turks & Caicos (really!) and even Afghanistan!

Prior to adoption, all dogs are microchipped, neutered, given heartworm, flea & tick preventatives, and updated on their shots. One of the truly unique things about adopting a dog from a foster home is that the foster family has had a chance to get to know what the dog is like in a home setting. They can tell the adopter about the dog’s habits, quirks, likes and dislikes which helps to make a better fit for both the dog and the adopter. If you’d like more information on adopting a dog, fostering, volunteering, or being an awesome financial supporter, check out OPHrescue.org.

  1. I am interested in applying to adopt a puppy but I have one issue that I feel could be a problem.
    I had used one Veterinarian since 1986, Dr. Edgar Loy – who retired several years ago.
    I then went to several others until I found a good fit. (Dr. Tracey Moussa who had her own solo practice called ‘Animal Birth Control of Harrisburg’.
    She closed her practice a couple of months ago. UGH. Now I have to find a new ‘vet home’ and I will need to do some visits and see which one I want for this important job they do for my pets.
    That said – I have no phone number to give to you.
    Not sure if this will be a problem with my application to adopt. Pkeaae let me know. Thank you !


    1. You can explain all that to an adoption coordinator when you apply. I don’t think it will be an issue, though. Super exciting time – adopting! My puppies won’t be on the website until they are 5 weeks old, but you can still apply for them. There are lots of other pups on the webiste or coming soon, too. Best wishes!


  2. Hey, so I’m interested in Cutie’s pies litter. Haven’t decided on which one I want, but I’m applying! Just thought I’d let you know!


  3. I am elderly and looking for a small companion. Preferably Chihuahua or a min pin mix. Puppy preferred. I have a large fenced in yard.
