This special little guy has had a tough journey to get the chance to stand in the doorway of a rescue that can network him to secure a forever home.  Sadly, so many precious dogs do not have that chance.  Skeeter is blessed with a one in a million chance and he is ready to take that ticket and RUN!  This little guy is a 3 year old, 16 pound, Dachshund mix male that is just the most delightful being.  He is happy and cheerful and accepting of whatever comes his way.  Skeeter is spunky and just makes you smile when you meet him.  He is working on being 100% housetrained and is learning how to walk like a gentleman on a leash.  He is good with all other creatures in life but we don’t want to recommend cats as the Dachshund breed is notorious for chasing cats.  You can just see the anticipation and intelligence in his eyes as he gets ready to embrace all the good things that will soon come his way, and just because he became a Critter Cavalry Rescue rescued dog.  PLEASE NOTE:  Our dogs are transported from Tennessee to meeting places in the states where we have posted.  Further information about us is given on our Adopt-A-Pet site.  The adoption fees vary and will be provided as well as noted on the application you receive.  Contact us at 615-661-5333 or

About Critter Companion Rescue- Richmond VA

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a group of dedicated rescue people who want to save as many dogs and cats from the local shelters before they are euthanized. On the average....there are only 1 out of 10 animals that get adopted from a shelter. We are dedicated to helping increase pet adoptions by offering a shelter animal a foster home to go to while awaiting an adoptive family to find them on our Petfinder website. Won't you please adopt a shelter animal? Or won't you please help us foster a shelter animal while we are looking for their perfect home? What a gift you can give a dog or cat by giving them a place to feel safe and secure....a forever home or a foster home. Won't you help us at Critter Companion Rescue give them a chance to have a life?

Our Adoption Process...

Most all our dogs are fostered in Tennessee and transport up to the Northeast or New England. Our fees start at $500 and can be higher depending on the dog and circumstances for their vetting. All fees cover the health certificate, transportation up to designated places for families to pick up their pre-adopted dog, spay/neuter, rabies, all shots, fecal and dewormings, microchip, complete vet check up and 4 way heartworm test if dogs are older than 8 months.
