Thanks for your interest in adopting a rescue Schnauzer. Before you can be considered to adopt any Schnauzer, you must first apply online. Click here for the adoption application:



We list all available Schnauzers with photos and descriptions at and here on our website: Available Schnauzers

 If you see a Schnauzer you are interested in adopting you can email the person listed.

Successful adopters take an active part in the process by letting us know which dog(s) they are interested in adopting (email is the fastest way to reach us). We are all volunteers (who work full time and have our own family and dogs to care for) so our adoption process does not always move as fast as our adopters (or we) would like.  

We are not a shelter and do not have a central facility. Dogs are kept in foster homes located throughout MD, VA, DC, DE and PA so we can evaluate their personality and find the best home for each Schnauzer. Visitations are therefore not possible. We do meeting/adoptions. Once we have approved your application as a possible match for a particular Schnauzer, we will set up a time and location for you to meet the dog and if everything goes well when you meet, we go forward with the adoption. All background checks and home checks will be done before the meeting.

To email us, send to the person listed on the description or send to 

Thanks for your patience with our process!
