Northern Breed Dog Adoption

Arctic Spirit Rescue adopts northern breed dogs (Huskies, Akitas, Malamutes, and more) to adopters within the Greater Philadelphia region, which includes portions of the following states:

  • Pennsylvania
  • Delaware
  • New Jersey
  • Maryland

We do not have a kennel facility. All of our dogs are lovingly fostered in private homes in typical family environments for a minimum of two weeks before they are available for adoption. This enables us to get to know our guests which allows us to learn the type of home he/she will thrive in. Our dogs are examined by one of the local vets affiliated with our rescue and are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, checked for Heartworm and Lyme Disease, and receive a clean bill of health before they are made available for adoption. Any health or behavioral issues that we are aware of are then shared with potential adopters, so you know as much about them as possible. We want to ensure your new family member fits in well with your family and lifestyle so we take our time to ensure our beautiful guests get the very best “second” start we can give them!

Our Process

We will contact you within 48 hours of your adoption application submission. Your application will then be processed as quickly as possible.  Processing time is often delayed if your references are not expecting our call so be sure to let them know. Once approved we will contact you to discuss your application and the dog you might be interested in.  We’ll then arrange a time for a home visit and inspection at which time you’ll meet your potential new friend. Our adoption fee is $240 which covers vaccinations, heartworm test, spay or neuter, and veterinary evaluation.
