Captain (Cappi for short) has had a very sad and lonely life before coming to The Fuzzy Pet Foundation. A man acquired Captain to be used as a 'guard dog' for his warehouse. For all eight years of his life, Captain received no love from the people around him. He was given food and water once every few days, and was not given any shelter to protect himself from the elements. Rain or shine, Captain was forced to live outside and lay on concrete floors with no bedding whatsoever. Every day, Captain would wait in front of the entrance gate, wagging his tail, and hoping for even a morsel of attention from the passers-by.

One day, a Good Samaritan decided to talk the warehouse owner into surrendering Captain; she explained to him that under TFPF Captain would have a second chance at life and a much better future. At first, the owner resisted saying that he needed a 'guard dog,' but later, he agreed because Captain was 'useless.' Captain did not have a single mean bone in his body, and all he wanted to do was please people. Hence, the warehouse owner found no 'use' for him.

Captain is such a special soul. He is loving, gentle, and well-mannered. He is excellent on the leash. He LOVES to play fetch and has already learned the commands 'sit,' 'shake,' and 'down.' He appreciates the simplest pleasures in life, such as quietly sitting and laying beside his caregivers, or being petted on the head. Captain is fine around small to medium-sized dogs, and has not been around too many cats or large-breed dogs. Captain has a clean bill of health.

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.
