APOLLO is a 3 yr old Pekingese with emotional issues who joined us from the DE SPCA recently. At the SPCA he was showing anxiety by attacking his tail. This appears to be more than just 'kennel stress' as he has continued this behavior in his foster home, especially if over stimulated.

Apollo was seen at Crest View Animal Clinic, LLC and diagnoses with OCD behavior. We have started him in Clomacalm to 'take the edge off' while we work in desensitizing him to the things that he over-reacts to. Apollo is good with other dogs although he dies guard his possessions so he would do best with a laid back canine companion  he loves going for walks and 'keeping him tired' is one if the Dr.'s orders!

Apollo is considered 'special needs' and will be available to a family who can continue to work with him. We have high hopes for this guy and will keep you updated on his progress! Apollo has been neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and tested (neg) for heartworms. Adoption $100. Due to his 'issues' we will only adopt Apollo out locally so that we can be supportive in his care. 

About CompAnimals Pet Rescue, Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

CompAnimals Pet Rescue is a small not-for-profit "no kill" rescue. Our mission is to take in unwanted, abandoned or abused dogs, cats and other small pets; to place those we can in loving, permanent homes; and to provide a sanctuary for the animals whose age, health issues or temperament precludes them from adoption. Our dogs & cats are neutered, vaccinated and receive all necessary medical treatment beford being made available for adoption. Through our volunteers and outreach programs we educate the next generation about the importance of spay/neuter and giving a lifelong home to their pets. We hope to one day put ourselves out of business but until then we will continue to rescue regardless of breed, age or medical condition.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our shelter has visiting hours - Wed through Sat from noon 'til 5 p.m. You're welcome anytime we're open.
Most our our dogs live in foster homes, and will likely not be at the shelter unless arrangements are made ahead of time.
We do hold monthly "Meet and Greets" at local pet stores, but here, as well, to meet a specific dog arrangements should be made in advance so that
your potential new best friend can be there waiting to meet you.
