Our trained and experienced volunteer staff will do all the legwork required to match a dog to its forever home, and our dog-to-family matching service is FREE*.
Are you an INDIVIDUAL who's looking for a new addition to your family, but having trouble finding that right dog who will be the perfect fit? Would you rather not have to visit a shelter or rescue because you hate seeing all those sad faces? We'll contact local rescues and evaluate potential dogs to find your perfect new companion based on your answers on our Family Form and subsequent discussions and meetings with you.
Are you an INDIVIDUAL who is being forced to give up your dog or cat and want to make sure he/she gets the best new home possible? Complete the Surrender Form so we'll know details about your pet and their current living situation. We'll then do our very best to find him/her that perfect new home.
Are you with an ANIMAL SHELTER or RESCUE having a problem placing a particular dog in their forever home? We'll help you find a new family for him/her based on your answers on our Shelter Form, an in-person evaluation of the dog, and subsequent discussions/meetings with you.
*K9 Matchmaker is not a rescue nor do we have a rescue facility. We are a dog-to-family matching service; a service which we provide free of charge to individuals, rescues and shelters. Although our service is free, you may be responsible for any adoption fees charged by a shelter/rescue and/or transport charges incurred by K9 Matchmaker or a transport service.

BUGZY is an adorable 6 month old male Jack Russell/Pug mix. Up-to-date on shots. Very high energy! Crate trained and housebroken (well, almost always ... he's still a puppy). Gets along with other dogs, big or small, and okay with kids. The owner has had him since he's 2 months old, but his work schedule has changed and Bugzy isn't getting the attention he needs. The owner would rather re-home him now while he's young.
BUDDY is a 2 year old male American Pit Bull Terrier - strong-willed, obedient, loyal, friendly, clownish, courageous, energetic, and very affectionate! He loves car rides and walks ... and people! He doesn't like being crated, dominant dogs, being alone, umbrellas or Tupperware containers. Up-to-date on shots. Neutered. Housebroken. Knows basic commands.
SAWYER is a 14 month old male Border Collie/Beagle mix. Up-to-date on shots. Neutered. Housebroken and crate trained. Needs exercise and a job to do. Very playful. May be a bit fearful at first, but warms up quickly. Has some obedience training - additional group classes will be free with his trainer.
BUDDY (#2) is a 4 year old male mix. Enjoys walks and is just a big lovebug! Good with children. Doesn't like cats. Has no identifiable negative issues. His previous owner brought him to a groomer and then said she didn't want him anymore. He's been living in an outdoor run for 3 years. Buddy desperately needs a home that can give him love and attention and a warm bed to sleep in.
NOTE: The photo was taken before he had his summer cut.
LOLA is a 5 year old female Pit Bull mix. Sweet disposition. Loves to snuggle with her human. Enjoys walks and riding in the car. Spayed and up-to-date on shots. Crate trained. Has had some obediesnce training. Doesn't like other dogs and is afraid of cats. She has a tendency to jump on you when greeting you, so she would probably do best with adults and older children.
