Meet Mr. Rocky! He is a 11-year old boy with a sad past. He was thrown out in an alley as a tiny, skinny puppy. Rocky followed a couple boys heading back home from the liquor store, and never left their home. Rocky was given water and food for the past 10 years, but never really got the love and care he needed until a Good Sam learned about his life story and wanted to help.

Rocky was exposed to a lot of domestic violence issues in his original home. He was also taunted and teased by the neighborhood kids. He craved for some love and TLC every day, and waited for the right family to take him home. 

With the help of a Good Sam, Rocky has been given proper vet care, and was professionally diagnosed with spondylosis after a major car accident while living with his former 'owners.' The spondylosis is completely manageable with the occasional use of pain meds. Rocky gets massaged every day, and he runs, walks, and plays just fine.

Rocky has a loving, gentle personality. He LOVES to cuddle and burrow underneath sheets and blankets to keep warm. He plays with toys, rolls on the grass, gallops around in the backyard. He listens wonderfully well, and even knows how to do tricks (shake, sit, down, and lay). 

Because of his past, Rocky needs a special, responsible home that could let him live out his golden years in peace and harmony. He is fearful of loud noises such as screaming people or fireworks. He is fine around certain dogs, but would do best as the only child in the house. He is scared of water. And he is scared of certain men with masks, hats, or hoodies on.

About The Fuzzy Pet Foundation - (TFPF)

About Our Rescue Group...

Founded in 2005, Fuzzy Dog and Cat Rescue, Inc. (FR) is a nonprofit animal rescue group. FR is organized by volunteers who are dedicated to saving homeless animals, reducing the rate of pet overpopulation, and educating the general public on animal welfare issues. Currently, our animals are fostered in a home environment by compassionate, pet-loving volunteers, as opposed to being boarded in kennels; this way we are able to socialize and work with each rescue animal on an individual basis. Our goal is to raise enough funds to establish a facility where we can house animals in a cage-free environment. We also wish to provide permanent, long-term care for senior and/or special needs dogs and cats in our future rescue facility.

Our Adoption Process...

1. Once you select an animal, you will be asked to complete an application form. Should you have any specific questions related to the application or the animal of interest, please contact us via e-mail.

2. Upon approval of your application, you will be contacted (via phone or e-mail) to be scheduled for a “meet and greet” with the animal at one of our adoption locations, and an orientation session with one of our adoptions counselors.

Please Note: We reserve the right to refuse an adoption to any family that we feel is not an ideal match for our animal. We also reserve the right to keep our reasons for denied applicants within our organization.

3. There will be a home-check for potential adoptions to ensure that the animal will be living in a safe and secure environment.

4. You will then be asked to sign a legally-binding contract with Fuzzy Dog and Cat Rescue, Inc., and to pay an adoption/donation fee.

5. Once all requirements are fulfilled, the animal will be released to you.

Please Note: If for any reason you are unable to keep or provide adequate care for the animal, we require that you return him/her back to Fuzzy Dog and Cat Rescue, Inc. Our animals are NOT to be transferred, sold, or given to a third-party.
