Extra Mile Dog Rescue


Adopted May 2010

The Extra Mile Dog Rescue is a volunteer-run 501(c)(3) no-kill public charity in Central Virginia devoted to helping dogs who cannot help themselves.

We rescue abused, abandoned, and homeless dogs from shelters including those who may have behavior issues that can be rehabilitated. The Extra Mile uses foster homes to provide sanctuary and training in a loving, caring, and stable home environment. Foster dogs are adopted to carefully chosen forever homes. Because our process is so thoughtfully carried out, many of our dogs stay in foster care for eight weeks or more.

We also provide canned pet food to local food banks so it can be distributed to families who own dogs and cats.
