Facts about Homer

  • Breed: Boxer/Mastiff Mix
  • Color: Brindle - With White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Male
Homer is a 5 year old boxer mix who survived a horrific cruelty case. The other dog starved to death in his crate but Homer was able to escape his crate and drink water from the pipes that had froze inside the house. Home is now healthy and ready to find a caring new home. He does become afraid and will snap when he is approached by strangers. We believe that he would be most successful in a home with and experienced dog owner. Training may help Homer over come some of his fears.

We all love Homer and are so happy that we could help save him! We know that an adopter will fall in love with him too!

$175.00 adoption donation ($200 for puppies under 6 months old) helps us take care of all the dogs we rescue. All dogs are spayed/neutered, tested for heartworm and tick borne diseases (if old enough) , microchipped and vaccinated for rabies (if old enough), distemper/parvo and bordetella. They are also treated for internal and external parasites if needed. Many dogs also receive extensive medical care such as surgeries and dentals. For more information or apply to adopt at

Come Meet Our Pets...

All of our dogs are fostered in individual foster homes. You can meet most of our adoptable dogs at Petsmart in Waynesboro almost every Saturday from 10am-2pm. You may also apply on our website

Our Adoption Process...

All dogs are spayed/neutered and vaccinated prior to adoption. Several have received additional medical care as well. The standard adoption donation is $175.00. However, the donation can easily be adjusted for seniors and dogs with special needs. It may also be slightly higher for young, purebred dogs. The adoption donation helps us provide care for the foster dogs.

We ask potential adopters to fill out a short application at If a match is made, a time to meet and adopt is then set up, usually on the following Saturday.

All dogs are adopted out as family members. They are not to kept exclusively outdoors. They must be allowed inside of the household.
