For the past almost 7 years, we have had great success in finding homes for a small number of ME dogs and puppies in need of foster or forever homes. Two were even rescued from kill shelters, then placed in an ME skilled foster home prior to adoption. Periodically, an ME dog would “appear” with rehoming (foster or forever homes) needs, so it was managed via word of mouth or private emails seldom posting publicly that more assistance was needed by others. This was usually accomplished by just a handful of individuals and the process was unorganized, but workable.
An increasing number of these ME dogs and puppies have shown up not just on social media pages, but in some of our personal email boxes and from a variety of sources, including, but not limited to, veterinarians, military personnel, law enforcement, breeders, rescue groups, private individuals, breed-specific Clubs, etc.
As the numbers have grown (in excess of 750), the system of word of mouth began not working well enough to benefit so many in need. For these reasons, a website https://rehomingmegaesophagusdogs.com/ and Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/rehomingmegaesphagusdogs/ became a vision then had to become a working, usable site quickly due to the numbers growing beyond efforts of a few individuals. We hope Rehoming Megaesophagus Dogs (RMD) provides you a great source to post your dogs’ needs to network and find the best home possible.
Please know we rarely do all the work for you, but do provide this one location that is easily sent wherever we can to showcase your ME dog. It will be seen worldwide, so don’t limit yourself to your specific location. There are transportation options on this site as well, so think outside the box. Though moving an ME dog takes great care, we can also make suggests there as well. We highly suggest you join one of the support groups, listed in the Links section of this website, so you may ask pertinent questions as this rehoming process moves forward.
