We rescue, foster, and adopt senior dogs only. Our dogs live in foster homes, as our goal is to make each dog’s transition to an adoptive family as smooth as possible. Top Dog Foundation does not operate a central shelter–there is not a “brick-and-mortar” building to visit to meet dogs. To ensure that all dogs go to their best and last homes, we require that an adoption application is completed and submitted prior to requesting an appointment to meet a dog. We also only respond to questions about a dog after an application is received.

Each dog’s page explains the type of home that is appropriate, if a fence is required, and whether the dog can be placed with children, dogs or cats. Please read the bio carefully before applying for a specific dog. We update these listings as soon as a dog is placed or an adoption is pending.

We do not charge adoption fees but always welcome donations.

Please note we place dogs only in our region, including Minnesota and in rare circumstances, neighboring states.

If you do not see dogs listed on this page, it means that we currently do not have a dog available to adopt.
