Facts about Snoopy

6-2016 -- Now 11 1/2 yrs old Snoopy is doing great! He is enjoying the warmer weather and more outside time with the gang. Please contact us if you are interested in giving Snoopy a much deserved home.

In January 2015 Snoopy arrived. He was in such bad shape that I didn't think he'd last a month.He was so skinny, you could see his ribs and they had a tshirt on him to keep him warm. He was diagnosed with congestive heart failure and had a stage 6 heart murmur and a terrible cough. He was unfixed with 1 testicle down and 1 up inside him. He was in a kill shelter and next on the list to be put to sleep. We were asked to take him and give him a nice place to spend his final days. He was only 10. Too young to die in my mind.

Fast forward 6 months. He is now 10 1/2 yrs old and has put on some weight and is in great spirits! He runs like the wind! He is the fastest dog here and all I can think is "this is a miracle!!!!" He loves to run around in the yard and sit in my lap and snuggle and have the top of his head rubbed.

Snoopy is up to date on shots and does well with other dogs especially ones closer to his size. He can be a bit dominant with some of the bigger dogs here at tines. He likes women over men and is fine with kids. Hasn't been around any toddlers so i don't know about that.

We are working on his potty training but he will mark if left to roam on his own. I have alot of males here so I don't know if that would disappear if he's the only dog in a house. He can be a bit possessive about food if another dog comes near his bowl while he's eating but he loves biscuits and treats and gobbles them up quick!

Snoopy would love a home with a fenced in yard so he can run free but make sure it is secure or he will find a way out so he can explore.

About Mureille's Place - A Senior Dog Sanctuary

About Our Rescue Group...

Mureille’s Place is a small home-based 501c3 rescue. We are a cage-free no-kill facility that provides a safe haven for unwanted senior dogs until they can be adopted into a forever home or if unadoptable, live out their remaining days with love, dignity and respect. The sanctuary is located on 7 wooded acres that include several walking trails that the dogs enjoy year round. We are very proud that we are an all volunteer rescue and do not have any paid staff or board members and that all tax deductible donations go to the rescue operation.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Visits to the shelter are by appointment only. Please call Barbara at 570-579-8172 to arrange.

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption process includes a pre-adoption interview to determine the type of home you will provide and will aid us in finding the right dog for you. We prefer that the dog do a “weekend” visit or longer before adopting to ensure that both the adopter and the dog are sure that it is a good match. There is an application to be filled out, a home visit and adoption donation typically from $50 - $150 (non-refundable). All dogs are spayed or neutered and are up to date on all shots.

We have also launched our "Seniors for Seniors" program where we do not charge a fee at all to qualifying senior citizens who adopt one of our seniors.

We are also working on a program that would allow a senior to adopt one of our seniors and we would take care of food, vet visits etc and be a place for the dog to come back to if the adopter had health issues and needed to be hospitalized or worse, passed away and there were no family members to take the dog in. This would greatly benefit seniors on a fixed income who want to own a dog but can't provide for them or are afraid that they will not outlive the dog. We are searching for funding for this program and will launch it as soon as that funding is found.
