If any dog deserved a good loving home, Lucy is it. Her owner had to go to rehab and Lucy ended up with a boyfriend. She got pregnant and had 11 puppies under the house next door. The home owners tried to feed her but in the end only 3 pups survived! No vet care throughout for Lucy or the puppies! The next door neighbors called us to help and we went there and gave Lucy and the pups shots and deworming and the boyfriend promised that as soon as her milk dried up we could take her and have her spayed. Animal control talked with him and he said he was going to keep the pups and did not want to turn them over to them or us. Long long story short, the boyfriend got mad because the pups made too much noise and hit the little girl puppy on the head with a limb and she died from neurological damage, a slow and painful death. Again the next door neighbor called. So we went down there opened the car door and they all jumped in. (Lucy had been sleeping on our porch at night for a the week.) The boyfriend was told if he didn’t want cruelty charges filed, he’d let them go. And now they are safe and fed and spayed and neutered and are micro-chipped. Lucy has another bad turn. When we took her to the Vet. it was found out she had heartworms. Although it is not a bad case and the Vet said the slow dose method would cure her, it is just another hurdle for this sweet girl to overcome.
Yes, Lucy is a bit homely, but she is so sweet and craves attention. She will literally climb in your lap,(she’s a little large) to give loving. Lucy is only a little over a year old and has gone through so much in her lifetime. Please help us find a loving, kind, and generous home for her. Her adoption fee is $250.00. Contact us via email sunsetanimalrescue@yahoo.com. She will need a sturdy fenced yard because she was left to roam and she will roam again if not properly fenced. Lucy does not understand traffic danger & will walk out into oncoming traffic. She loves to be inside & is housetrained, leash trained, likes to ride in the car & go for walks. Contact us by email to request a questionnaire, the first step in adoption.

Sunset Animal Rescue prefers that all dogs have a securely fenced yard.

Our Adoption Process...

Anyone interested in adopting one of our pets should contact us for an interview. We do have a questionnaire and an adoption contract and a home visit is also required before a potential adopter is approved. Our regular adoption donation for dogs is $200.00 which includes their current shots, microchip, and spay/neuter. Our regular adoption donation for cats is $120.00 which includes current shots, microchip & spay/neuter. We do have some dogs and/or cats that may have a higher adoption donation. In this case the adoption donation amount will be noted in the description of the pet. Sunset Animal rescue increased the donation amount for dogs in 2009 due to increased costs for food, spay/neuter, medication, gas, etc. We do prefer that all adoptive families for dogs have a securely fenced yard.
