|NURSERIES -- PUPPIES!|
Sometimes Ratbone Rescues will take in pregnant dogs, mothers with puppies, or litters of motherless puppies.
Applications will only be processed after the puppies in a nursery have reached 6 weeks of age, and had their first shots. Booster shots will be given at 9 weeks of age, and spay/neuter will be done at 10-16 weeks of age.
NO PUPPY MAY GO HOME UNTIL IT'S BEEN SPAY/NEUTERED; NO EXCEPTIONS.
Adopters of our nursery babies will be expected to continue with puppy booster shots after adoption (check with your vet about recommended vaccination schedules for puppies); this will usually consist of additional booster shots at 12 and 15-16 weeks.
Please remember that baby puppies need lots of time and attention in order to grow into canine good citizens and well-adjusted family members. If you work long hours or travel a lot and would have to leave the puppy at home alone for over 7 hours at a time, then a baby puppy wouldn't be the best choice for your family.
Generally, we only have foster homes for our babies in only 4 states; Oklahoma, Maryland, Florida & Wisconsin. Please be prepared to fly your puppy home if you live more than 600 miles from their location.
