Hi my name is Sam, I'm 1.5 years old. I am a very loveable boy, and I love to be around people.  If I decide you are my favorite, I will follow you all over and miss you when you are gone.  I need to have exercise, so if you are looking for a dog that lays around I am not for you, but the rescue has many of those types so check it out. I would also not do well locked up all day, I get pretty crazy after being in a crate and really need to play.  I go running with my foster mom every morning, if we miss a day, I usually end up getting into mischief because I have energy I need to get out.  I love to play ball and get in the kids pool and get wet.  I like every dog that I have met, and just want to play and have fun.  Sometimes I get scolded because I can play pretty hard and not all dogs like that.  I'm learning all the basic commands and picking it up really quick.  As long as I get exercise and have bones to chew, I haven't chewed on anything I'm not suppose too.  However, my foster mom said if I didn't get those things, I would probably chew on things puppies are not suppose too.  I love car rides, but you should watch out.  I have been known to jump out of a car window or two when I get excited.  I live with three kids between ages 4 to 13 and do great with all ages.  I love to chase squirrels or anything else like that, especially when they run from me.  I would need a yard that is fenced in because I would just keep on running after them because it would be so much fun.  I love to give kisses too, so if you think I would be a great fit for your family than fill out an application.

About One Dog At A Time (ODAAT)

About Our Rescue Group...

Our Mission at One Dog at a Time, or ODAAT, is to become a not for profit organization dedicated to legally assist animals in need by working in tandem and cooperatively with Dog Wardens, Humane Officers, Local Police, and the State Police; building relationships and solutions with all. ODAAT realizes the problems of neglected and abused animals in Pennsylvania do not have immediate solutions and until state cruelty laws are amended or changed, this group of volunteers will work within the constraints of the Pennsylvania legal system. ODAAT is working with individuals and agencies that are able to enforce Pennsylvania Humane Laws and will assist where and when possible – with resources and training so desperately needed.

Our Adoption Process...

The goal of ODAAT is to place our companion animals in lifetime, loving homes. Every home and every companion animal has it 's own unique personality and requirements. We place our animals in the supportive and loving environment of home foster care. While there, we gain knowledge about their personality, training skills, likes and dislikes.

To assist us with matching the correct companion animal with the most appropriate and compatible home,please fill out our adoption application questions as completely and correctly as possible and any other information you think would be helpful. The application will be followed-up by an ODAAT Adoption Coordinator, with a phone interview and then a home check.

Adoption contract and post adoption follow-up checks are required as a condition of adoption. Some companion animals get multiple applicants or are not appropriate matches, so not all adoptions will be approved. Not all applicants will receive a yes or no response due to limited staff. We reserve the right to refuse any adoption without justification.
Our Adoption Costs vary but below is a guidline:
Dogs: $150-$350
Cats: $50
Kittens: $75

Why the high cost? Can't I adopt an animal for less? No.. and here's why: Our animals come to you fully vetted. It costs us less for medical care then you due to non-profit discount. So if you adopt an animal for less it will cost you more later. Spay & Neutering your animals, along with keeping up on shots prevents disease & illnesses.
