Hi, my name is Tucker and I'm about 3 years old. I am a very lucky boy. I was at Front Street shelter for several months and they tried to kill me a couple times, but outcries on social media saved me. I'm just a goofy young adolescent boy who likes to play. The next thing I knew I was getting picked up by this lady. She also took this really small dog in a crate, so I kept checking on her during the long ride home. I spent 3 weeks in board and train with my trainer Mitchell. I am a smart boy and did super well, so now I get to be in a home with my foster mom. I don't like it when she leaves because I LOVE to be around my people. I am not good with cats as I think they're toys. I'm really thankful to be out of the shelter environment and in a home. I'm looking for my forever home though because I'd rather have my very own human than to have to share her with the other dogs. I love to go on hikes and I'll go in the water, but only up to my chest. I also love to play fetch...all day. I also started doing the agility course at the dog park and I'm pretty good; not so sure about jumping through the tires, but everything else is fun! I'd do well in a home with another dog to play with and to show me the way. If my humans worked from home too, that would be awesome!

You can contact my foster mom Jenn directly to meet me or with any questions. 910-489-9978

About Hoofs, Paws and Claws Haven

About Our Rescue Group...

Hoofs Paws and Claws Haven (HPCH) is an all volunteer, non-profit organization dedicated to helping animals in our surrounding community. We rescue a variety of animals, and actively search for their forever homes. This is provided we have a foster home available. We take in dogs from local shelters and also strays. We also provide a safe "haven" for any animal who may not be adoptable.

HPCH is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation, our tax ID # is 47-3887603. Your donations are fully tax deductible and fund our operations and help pay our vet expenses.

HPCH is dedicated to reducing the number of homeless pets through the spaying/neutering of all our rescued dogs. We provide information on low cost or no cost spay/neuter clinics in our surrounding areas.

Each dog that comes to us has been updated on shots, spayed/neutered and microchipped. Many of our dogs have also been treated for various medical conditions including mange, heart worms, broken bones, neurological issues, etc. One of our dogs can take anywhere from one month to one year to get ready for adoption and the cost for the dogs we take on can range from $150 to several thousand dollars. We take on dogs from shelters that are set to be euthanized for various reasons, including simply that they've been there too long, or they have a medical condition that precludes them from adoption to the public, making them "rescue only." This means only a rescue can pull them from the shelter, but also leaves us to be responsible for any costs for things that the dog requires.

We also take on strays and incur the cost of having them vaccinated, spayed, neutered and microchipped. We take on owner surrenders, dogs who owners can no longer provide care. We insure a safe house for all of the dogs that we take on and provide all needed supplies for the foster homes that care for them until they are to be adopted. We also insure that they never end up in a shelter.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our adoptable dogs live in foster homes and meet and greets are done by appointment only.

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption process requires an adoption application, a phone screening, meet and greet with animal, a home check and an Adoption Contract and fee.

All of our dogs will be spayed/neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped prior to being adopted. Our adoption fees are considered to be donations. All donations from adoption go right back into our rescue account, allowing us to continue to help dogs in need. At the bare minimum, the cost to properly vet a dog is $100-150. But some of the dogs we take on are medical or behavioral cases, which can cost several thousand dollars. Because of this, we ask the following adoption fees:
$350 for puppies, which are any dogs under a year old
$150-250 for any adult dog ages over the age of 1
