FAMILY TRAVELING OUT OF THE COUNTRY -- so OFF to the SHELTER I WENT! .... I'm a little girl -- a 4 yo CHI MIX and I'm NERVOUS and SCARED HERE. Lived with 3 adults and a child! LET's GET HER OUT of the SCARY SHELTER and into a HOME!

Kamila's family state that they plan to travel out of the country for extended periods of time an so they surrendered her to the VERY FULL SHELTER!!! She's a bit nervous but sweet and ALLOWED ALL HANDLING! She'll need some time with other animals as she hasn't been around them but initial exposure seems promising with slow intro and calm dogs. She was not cat tested but again -- with a dog friendly cat and slow intro - she'd likely be okay.

In & Out of Cage: Kamila was nervous and tried to bolt out of the cage. She allowed the handler to leash her and allowed petting. After a few minutes, she leaned in. Kamila allowed tail, ears, paws and muzzle handling without issue. Kamila did not perform any commands. Kamila did show interest in play, toys or chewy. Stranger- Kamila approached the stranger socially, sniffed, and wandered around the room. Dog to Dog- Kamila was social and interested in Lenny, but did get nervous, growl, and move away when he sniffed her rear end.

KAMILA is an unaltered female, 4 year old, Chihuahua mix. The dog is not house trained and kept in a confined area of the house during the day and night (NOTE LEFT ALONE for EXTENDED PERIODS WITHOUT being TAKEN OUTSIDE).

About Road to Home Rescue Support - Long Island, NY

About Our Rescue Group...

Road to Home was started to be able to focus on animals in need and to provide support to local rescues. After years of working in shelters and with rescues, we decided starting our own rescue was the best way to do what we do best! We are a 100 percent non-profit and 100 percent of the money we raise goes towards animals in need. Our 5013c is pending. Here’s what we will focus on:

-Providing guidance and support for re-homing an animal.
-Providing medical attention, training, spay/neuter, and food/supplies to a homeless animal.
-Pulling an animal from a euthanasia list or from an unsafe situation and placing them in a foster or permanent home.
-Working with rescues and shelters to facilitate adoptions by doing home checks, adoption applications, and networking to find foster or permanent homes for animals in need.
-Working with rescues and shelters to coordinate adoption events, food drives, and fundraisers.
-Raising money through a Chip-In to help specific dogs with training, medical needs, and adoption.
-Raising funds that can be allocated to specific needs of other rescues and shelters (including medical expenses, training expenses, food, and transport) as well as pledging money to animals in jeopardy of euthanasia.
