Missy is between 3-4 yrs old, weighs about 10-11 lbs and we believe she is a rat terrier and perhaps italian greyhound mix.  She is a little shy at first but once she gets to know you, is very friendly and playful.  She gets along with dogs and would probably cohabitate well with cats.  She is pretty much house trained but may need to be forced to go outside for a potty break before leaving her along it the house for several hours.  She is not destructive except she does like to chew on corners of quilts (go figure).  She is spayed, current on vaccinations, micro chipped and on heart worm preventative.  We believe she would good with children however, we prefer children in the household be 10 yrs and older.  If you think Missy might fit in with your household, please email us for a pre adoption questionnaire.  When completed we will review it to see if your home sounds like a possible match and schedule a meet and greet.  Home visits are part of our adoption process therefore she is available for adoption in the immediate DFW area only.  She is not available for out of state adoption.  Her adoption fee is $200.

About Angel's Rescue of North Texas

About Our Rescue Group...

Angel's Rescue was founded by Betty Wiley in 2000, however her plight began years earlier when she became concerned at the number of dogs being abandoned at a local lake. She at first began taking food and water out to them each day and eventually she was able to pick some of them up, take them to the vet for the appropriate health care, then find loving homes for them. Most of our dogs are either rescued from the lake, strays or from local animal shelters.

Angel’s Rescue is a small non-profit 501(c)3 group comprised of volunteers who dedicate themselves to rescuing dogs. We are a “no–kill” rescue group, operating solely on donations. We do not receive any type of government or institutional funding.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We do not have a shelter facility. Each of us foster dogs in our homes. Adoptions can be done during the week at the foster family's convenience. We hold adoptions on Saturday or Sunday (12-5) at the Petco in Mansfield off Fm157 (South Cooper) and Hwy 287

Our Adoption Process...

***Adopting a New Friend:Our adoption process consists of filling out a pre-adoption questionnaire, which is then reviewed by an ARNT representative. If adopter is approved, a home visit will be scheduled at a convenient time for the potential adopter. If the home is approved, the adoption contract will be signed and the adoption fee paid. The dog then becomes the adoptive pet of the adopter. We do not ship dogs. Our adoption fee runs between $100 or $350 depending on the type of dog. This fluctuation is to compensate for cost of the vet work that goes into some animals. We may have a puppy that gets adopted for $100.00 that we have spent $300.00 in vet care. The higher fee on the more desirable dogs help cover this expense. We don't make a profit by getting a higher adoption fee on some dogs, as some people would think. We always have very high vet bills at numerous vets in the area.
***Adoption Fee Includes:
*Vet records
*Age appropriate shots
*Heart Worm Tests
*Heartworm preventive up to date(if dog is heartworm positive, they will be treated)
*Spaying/Neutering
*Any other vet care needed while in our care
*Any training given while in our care

***Our Policy. Each of our dogs is adopted as an indoor family pet, not as a outdoor watchdog, a breeding dog, or a fighting dog. Each adopted animal must be spayed/neutered, even full breed or pedigreed animals. This is not an optional procedure, and it is mandated by city ordinances. The full adoption process is required for each applicant. Adopters are expected to keep their new pet current on all vaccinations, heartworm prevention, & other vet care as needed. Home visits are to insure there is proper shelter and provisions for the pet; that there is a secure fence around the property and to introduce the new pet to existing pets in the home, if any, in order to test their compatibility. The adopted animal is usually delivered to the new family at the time the home visit is performed.

***In some cases, we will take pets back if they are no longer able to stay in your home. Depending on the space and availability of foster home.
