"I just adopted my new pup from Meredith, who runs this organization. I found the process easy and professional. I really appreciate all of her hard work and the commitment it takes to get these pups over all the hurdles to find them loving homes! Little Wicket might be the sweetest little soul I’ve ever had the pleasure of welcoming into my home. I’m looking forward to many years of love and adventures with her!" ~Jolynne, Oregon

"Meredith is one of the most driven persons I have met in rescue. She jumps in with both feet and all of her heart. She is a gift to both animals and folks seeking to adopt or foster as well. She makes a difference. Her passion and dedication to this cause is evident and I have tremendous respect for her. 5 stars and four paws up Meredith. Thanks! WOOF!"

We got our amazing little sweetheart through their adoption process and it has been by far, the best experience imaginable. The care, love, concern and time they pour into each dog is evident from the start - you can tell this is more than just a rescue organization. Agave Dogs Rescue is the best!"
