Hey, remember me? I'm Greta and I'm still here waiting for an amazing family to sweep me off my paws. I'm approximately 3 years old and my past was not the best before Pet Helpers rescued me. When I first came to my foster home I was such a scared little girl with a litter of puppies. But my foster mom loves me so much and has taught me that people are good. She said be patient the right family will come along. I love all the other dogs and cats in my foster home. I'm a little shy at first but once I trust you and you give me time to warm up to you I will love you like no other. They also say I look like I have some dachshund  in me. I'm an average-sized gal weighing about 16 to 17 pounds. I am fixed up to date on shots flea treated and waiting for you to love me and give me a forever home. I definitely need a fenced-in yard and probably would be better in a home with no little children. Because of my previous situation I still have an accident in the house once in awhile but my foster mom says it's okay she understands. But I'm doing really really well and it's not very often that this happens. I am crate trained so I have no problem staying in there while you were at work. If you are interested in me please request an application at I am being fostered in Clarksburg WV.

Pet Helpers is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit foster based volunteer rescue located in Fairmont, WV.  We do adopt out of state to approved applicants, if you are willing to drive to WV to pick up your pet.  We do not fly or use transport companies.  Our adoption fee is $150.00 for mixed breed puppies and adult dogs, $225.00 for full blooded puppies and adult dogs and $50.00 for cats and kittens.  Regardless if the animal is a mixed breed or full blooded they are spayed/neutered prior to adoption IF they are old enough.  If they are too young at the time of adoption, then it is your financial responsibility to spay/neuter the pet by the age of 6 months and you must provide proof for our files that it has been done.  All of our pets are checked by a vet, given the shots appropriate for their age and any other treatment deemed necessary by the vet.  All of our pets are adopted as indoor pets and are not be outdoors tied to a box 24/7.  The pet you are adopting has been living in a home with a foster family.  You are expected to take possession of the pet you are applying for within a few days of application approval.  This will enable us to accept another pet into that home.  Because we are a rescue, and believe that spaying and neutering is crucial in stopping the reproduction of unwanted puppies/kittens and massive amounts of animals dying daily in shelters across the country, we expect any animal already in your home to be spayed/neutered. If for any reason you are unable to keep the pet you have adopted you are required to return them to Pet Helpers, Inc.  They are not to be sold or given away.

About Pet Helpers, Inc

About Our Rescue Group...

We were formed in September of 2008. We provide much needed support to pet owners, animal caregivers and other rescues. We also work to educate pet owners on the importance of spaying and neutering their pets. We place homeless animals from within our organization as well as other Rescue Organizations.

We do not have a shelter or facility. All of our pets are kept in foster homes until adopted. We feel that this better prepares the pet to live with the family who adopts them. We have placed over 1,000 pets with adoptive families and continuously look for new foster homes so that we can give more pets a chance at a new life.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We do not have a facility. All of our animals are in Foster care and live with families until they are adopted. We can arrange a visit with any of our pets in foster when someone calls or emails us.

You can view our adoptable pets on our website: and we also have a link on the Home Page to our Facebook page.

Our Adoption Process...

Email for an application. We require a vet reference and 2 personal references. Once the application is approved, we will arrange for the family to meet the pet and decide if they want to finalize the adoption. Our adoption fee is $150 regardless of age/breed. Our contract requires that the pet be kept as an indoor pet and part of the family. If the pet is old enough, it will be spayed/neutered prior to adoption. Young puppies are required to be spayed/neutered by the age of 6 months, which is not included in the adoption fee. You are required to send a spay/neuter certificate to Pet Helpers. If you can no longer provide a home for the pet, you are required to return the pet to Pet Helpers, Inc.
