Hello! My name is Jake! I have already had a rough life in my short two years. I somehow ended up at a shelter and after along time I was finally adopted. At my new home I started having seizures and my new family could not afford any medical treatment. Thankfully a good sam stepped in and paid for my medical treatment but I was then returned to the shelter. Thankfully STS yanked me outta the shelter quickly and put me in a cozy foster home. I love my foster home. I have dogs and kids to play with. The vet says my seizures were caused by something environmental like possibly something I ingested, and I have had no seizures since. I am not am on any medication and am perfectly fine. I would love to have my own family with a fenced yard and a comfy couch. I love to cuddle! No one is sure of my breed but everyone says I am handsome and they love my ears!! Here is what my foster mom says about me "he loves car rides and walks. He loves to play with other dogs and kids and any toy he can get ahold of. He is crate trained and house broken. He sleeps in my bed at night and is a bed hog. He loves attention and would make some family very happy. Jake's adoption fee is $175, which includes all vetting (spay/neuter, all vaccinations including rabies, heartworm test and started on flea/tick prevention and a leash and collar.

Assessment - Matching the Dog and the Adopter
Adopter discusses the dog or cat of choice with an STS adoption specialist.
The STS adoption specialist discusses needs and temperament of dog with individual/family.
Both needs of the dog or cat and and the criteria of the family are very carefully assessed to assure the best match possible. Items considered include:

Temperament and age of dog or cat
Veterinary/health needs of dog or cat
Individual/families desires and perception of the perfect pet
(no match is “perfect” but STS strives for the best match possible)
Ability of individual/family to meet the veterinary, daily-living, behavioral and emotional needs of the dog or cat.

STS visits the home of any adoptive family. If the family lives out of state, STS may arrange for another local rescue to conduct the home visit.
Other means of assessment include:

Veterinary reference
Personal references by two to three individuals who know the adopter and the adopter’s capability to provide a loving home for an animal
