'Your final stop for your furever friend!'

Meet Miss Fanci Pants! Fanci was surrendered to a kill shelter at about 5 months old. Since this time, she has bounced around from shelter, to foster home, to boarding, now back to a shelter. She was pulled from the kill shelter at 5 months, and lived in a foster home for a few months. When her foster could no longer keep her, she moved to boarding. The rescue who pulled her was foster based, and there were no fosters available at the time. With so much energy and love for playing in the yard, living in boarding really made her become depressed. She lost weight and was not happy. A local trainer spent a LOT of time with Fanci while she was here, and Fanci completed basic obedience training, and some! About a year after her rescue, a space became available at a low kill shelter, and Fanci got to move! She's still here. She is almost 2 years old, heartworm negative, obedience trained, loves kids and cats. Oh, and Fanci LOVES, LOVES her toy balls! She isn't too interested in playing with other dogs because she is obsessed with playing ball and giving her humans so much attention. She LOVES going for car rides, trips to the pet store, or just playing in the yard for HOURS. And swimming and four wheeling on the creek? Yes please!! She's a very observant little girl, who listens and is keen on everything around her. She was even enrolled in a training program for a few months to become an officer assisting K-9! This is one smart cookie! We aren't quite positive what breeds make up this beautiful girl, but we know she's one of a kind. She's just wondering why she hasn't found her home yet. We'd love to see her get a home and yard of her own, with humans who can throw the ball with her ALL day! Come meet Fanci, and you won't be disappointed :)

We require that ALL current household pets be spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccinations and up to date on heartworm prevention. We will require confirmation from your veterinarian. If renting, we must have landlord approval. A fence is not a requirement for ALL of our dogs. Fences are a case-by-case determination.

Our Adoption Process...

The Pit Stop adoption process:
You will first need to complete a Pre-Adoption Application. Once you have returned the application, we will review it and send it back to you with any questions/concerns that we may have. If all checks out, you will be approved.
One approved, we will come out to your home for a home visit and bring the dog(s) that you are interested in adopting or dog(s) that we believe would be a perfect fit for you and your family.
Once the home check is complete and approved, we will offer to have the dog you are interested in stay with you for a few days to make sure everything works out. If everything works out, you are ready to adopt!
During the adoption, there will be a contract that will be signed, one copy for adopter & one copy for the rescue. We will provide you with all current vet records. In the contract, you agree to not neglect the dog, not tie up the dog, keep dog current on vaccination & you agree to allow your vet to release all records to the rescue as we will follow up. We will do un-scheduled home visits to check to make sure the dog is being taken care of. In the contract, you will agree to update us on change of address/phone number and keep us current with happy trails and pictures.
