Facts about Okie

  • Breed: Border Terrier Mix
  • Color: White - With Black
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: FLPS#29
Okie found himself at the Arizona Humane Society when his owner became ill.

At just 18 lbs, this 10 year old border terrier mix is the cutest thing. Okie's in great shape and has plenty of energy and love to give.

Living with his foster mom + 4 terrier siblings Okie has shown what a gentleman he is and never had an accident in the house [pretty good for an old man.] Yes, he's blind and diabetic but nothing stops him. He loves to play/run in the yard and take walks. Okie is crate trained and when the young pups get crazy he goes to his crate for comfort. He knows commands such as sit, shake paws and roll over. Who knew? Okie's diabetes is easily managed with an itty bitty shot 2x/day. He prefers the shots be given while he eats because food has a way of taking his mind off the shot. Okie never gets on the couch or the bed unless he's invited up, then he will gladly cuddle.

Let us know if you'd like to give Okie the love and care he deserves.

About Forever Loved Pet Sanctuary

About Our Rescue Group...

Forever Loved Pet Sanctuary (FLPS) is one of only two senior animal rescues in Maricopa County, Arizona. Formed in 2012 as a non-profit 501[c][3] organization, the focus of FLPS is to promote the rescue, adoption, and well-being of senior animals. FLPS also provides public education regarding the value of adopting a senior pet. FLPS serves a public need by offering housing to a limited number of senior pets.

This safe haven, will take the burden of temporary care and housing of senior animals off of local shelters. Inevitably, local shelters resort to euthanizing these abandoned, senior animals at an alarming rate. According to a 2012 statistics report, Maricopa County Animal Care and Control (MCACC) euthanizes one animal every eight minutes it is open to the public. Euthanasia for senior residents is the primary option for most local shelters because they tend to focus their efforts on a high adoption model that includes younger “more adoptable” animals. FLPS will work with local shelters and rescues to identify the senior animals in need and provide a streamlined process for interested men, women and families who wish to adopt.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Forever Loved Pet Sanctuary (FLPS) is involved with events hosted by PACC911 (Phoenix Animal Care Coalition) and is currently in talks with a local Pet Food retail store to host a monthly adoption event.

Our Adoption Process...

Forever Loved Pet Sanctuary (FLPS) asks for an adoption donation beginning at $150 [depending on age and breed] for each of our fabulous senior dogs and cats. We require that an adoption application be completed as well as a home check.
