About our rescue & sanctuary
We rescue adoptable dogs from kill shelters around the country and provide them with quality care in a unique, homelike setting as we work to match them with forever families.
We are honored to collaborate with the local community to provide employment, volunteer and recreational activities as they support our ongoing mission.
Our Unique Campus
Constructed over 18 months in 2021-2022, our six-acre campus features six residential-style dog cabins inspired by local architecture, a welcome center with offices, a conference center, and a small retail gift shop, acres of wooded hiking trails, and a seasonal ice cream shop and 18-hole dog themed mini-golf course whose operations support the rescue’s daily operations.
Please consider contributing a monetary gift to this unique and exciting project by visiting our Donate page.
How We Acquire Our Adoptable Dogs
In line with our mission, we source adoptable dogs of all sizes and breeds from kill shelters around the country by partnering with like-minded rescue operations and shelters. Once dogs have been identified for Grammy Rose, they receive any required shots and are transported to Maine. Sometimes the transport comes straight to the rescue to hand off its precious cargo, and at other times we meet transports around New England with our customized transport van and handle the “last mile” transport directly to Grammy Rose. Dogs coming from out of state go through a 5-day quarantine period and are then posted on our website and Facebook page for adoption.
