DMK Rehoming originated in 2008, the brainchild of Deb Brinkley. After several years of fostering for other rescues she decided to branch out and start her own affordable rescue for death row dogs. DMK Rehoming is DeathRow Mutts Kennel.
DMK was going to be specifically an Australian Cattle Dog rescue, but soon found out there are many others breeds out there that are trying to beat death row. We have had Daschunds, Huskys, Chihuahuas, Hounds, Terriers, Border Collies, Rotties, Pits, you name it. We also discovered that many times the adoption price is a deterrent and a dog is in foster for a long time, so we have family friendly pricing and a sliding adoption fee for older dogs and special needs dogs.
So we changed our minds on being breed specific and still primarily take herding breeds, but we take a lot of other deserving dogs. We also decided to adopt our dogs out for our cost or less. We try to keep the costs at a minimum, without forsaking any vetting.
Although, usually the adoption fee is less for our dogs, they are like any other rescue, desperate for a loving, caring, forever home. We do home checks, have an adoption contract and supply advice and support for the transition of your new pet. We sincerely want to make the best match between family and dog, we know this takes some time since rescue dogs have been through so much and we assist as much as possible.
We welcome the opportunity to find you the perfect addition to your family.
