Melvin needs a special person who can look beyond the physical

Not every dog is perfect, but every dog deserves the perfect home. Melvin was hours away from being put to death in a high kill shelter. Melvin was picked on by other dogs, and had severe wounds, in addition to a severe skin condition. He has been receiving on going medical attention, but due to the neglect and having the conditions go untreated for so long, Melvin may never win a beauty contest. But he's not letting that stop him from trying to find a new home. He's a fun guy, who loves attention. His favorite toy is a deflated basketball, that he carries around with him! We love this guy. Maybe you will too. Melvin is fully vetted and microchipped too.

About Castoff Pet Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

The mission of Castoff Pet Rescue is to save and nurture homeless dogs; to match companion animals with loving, life-long homes; to foster responsible pet care; to control overpopulation in our community through spay/neuter programs; and to assist other shelters and rescue groups in any endeavor to benefit the animals. We believe that the same kindness, compassion, and generosity we extend to our two-legged neighbors should be given to our four-legged friends because they are not able to speak for themselves.
