How to Help

Come Volunteer With US!

NoVa Rottweiler Rescue is always in need of dedicated volunteers to help transport dogs to and from the rescue events! Typically events are held on Saturdays and generally occur between 12:00 noon and 6:30 p.m. Reliable transportation and handler help is invaluable to our organization and is the BEST way to introduce our available dogs to potential adoptors. Read our Volunteer Application, our Transport Application, or submit our online volunteer application to begin helping our cause immediately!

Urgent Need: NoVA is searching for Foster Homes

Nova Rottweiler Rescue is seeking foster homes for homeless Rottweilers. We are looking for foster homes in Maryland and Northern Virginia. Due to the housing foreclosures, the economy, and the usual reasons people give up their dogs, Nova is seriously in need of additional temporary housing (foster homes) in order to save dogs that are trapped in shelters and literally sitting on death row.

How does it work? Nova will take the dog into our program, evaluate the dog, temperament test the dog, and address any obvious health issues prior to the dog going to a foster home. We also spay/neuter, and microchip each dog. All the foster home needs to do is supply the food and a little love and attention until a permanent home can be found. It's that easy! The rescue does all the hard work.

Experience how good it feels to know that because of YOU a homeless dog will have a second chance for life. Please fill out our foster home application.

NoVA Rottweiler Sanctuary Fund

Nova Rottweiler Rescue League has been around for the past twenty-two years. We began as a rescue that only covered Northern Virginia and Southern Maryland. But, as the years went by and many other rescues folded, we became just about the only rescue for this noble breed. Our financial situation has became stressed over the years as our foster homes (no matter how many we have) could never seem to save all the unwanted Rottweilers. Because of the fact that a few shelters do not adopt Rottweilers to the general public, and the one’s that do are usually packed with them, many innocent Rottweilers continue to die in shelters all over our region. No matter how hard we try to save as many as we can, we cannot keep up with the amount of dogs that are being abandoned, mistreated, and over bred. Our dream is to one day have a sanctuary just for Rottweilers! A place for the old, the abused, and the ones that for some reason no one will adopt, as well as a larger place for our homeless adoptables. We hope that someday our dream will become a reality and allow us to save Rottweilers from other areas as well. This is a wonderful dream, but without the ability to purchase land and have a facility to shelter these dogs, this will always be … just a dream. Please consider a tax-deductible donation towards our cause. We save so many wonderful dogs, but there are so many others that will still die without your help. Please enable us to make our dream of having a Rottweiler Sanctuary become a reality. Their lives, their future, and their chance to find a forever home depends on you.

Help us, help them... We desperately need a facility to house our rescues after the foster space runs out...Click on the link below and reference the Sanctuary Fund in your donation description. Thank You.
