Helping to find loving homes for Dogs and Cats since 2008.
Our main mission is to help solve the pet overpopulation problem through pet adoptions, spay & neuter programs, public education about the treatment of animals, and pet events to further public awareness.
This is the Dog! is a 501c3 not-for-profit organization in Homestead, FL. This is the Dog! depends on a network of volunteers for animal rescue, pet foster homes, adoption events, and many other facets of our organization. We do not operate a pet shelter. We are a small group of volunteers trying to make a difference.
Using pet adoptions, spay & neuter programs, and public education events to raise awareness about the ethical treatment of animals and the ways animals can improve the human condition.
Adopt don't shop.
Founded in 2008 by a group of volunteers, we have helped find homes for hundreds of animals, and not just cats & dogs.
We depend on our network of volunteers to support our mission of solving the pet overpopulation problem.
- Adopt don't shop.
- Spay & neuter your pets.
- Consider volunteering at one or more of our adoption events. You are almost always guaranteed play time with puppies! Anyone 12 and older is eligible!
- Consider fostering. You get to choose your animal type, and if it isn't working out we will re-foster home the animal.
Interested in helping? Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for further details.

Even though we had decided not get another dog after our senir dog passed, our house felt empty, our younger dog seemed lonely & there was a void in our hearts. After looking for a few days, we came across these Labrador puppies at This Is the Dog Rescue. They were so wonderful through the adoption process. We had his sister in mind but Flash⚡ (previously Artie) chose us & we instantly fell in love with him. Last night was his 1st night in his furever home & it went well. This morning our house is filled this excitement, love & it feels complete! Thank you so much for helping us find the perfect dog for us ?? So everyone, we would like to introduce you to the newest member of the Osorio Clan, Flash⚡

Archie’s (shadow) first night with us and we are in love. He was well cared for and loved. His foster mother is awesome and has answered questions about him. Don’t know why this dog was found on the street, but we are lucky to get him! Thanks!
