Facts about Ernie

  • Age: Adult

Ernie is a special needs boy. We think he was hit by a car as he tends to list sideways occasionally. He is so sweet; his foster mom calls him a velcro dog. He wants to be by her side always. Everyone at our local boarding facility fell in love with him because of his sweetness. We are working on house training and general manners. We aren't sure of his past story as he was rescued from a local rural shelter. Hounds are thrown away in the South like trash; very sad because they make incredible family dogs. Ernie is no exception. He is a little slower mentally than most but not aggressive and gets on well with other dogs. He just wants to be loved.

About Farm Friends Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Our Mission:
At Farm Friends Rescue, our mission is to save the lives of stray, abandoned, abused and surrendered domestic animals in our local community by providing short-term care and shelter while facilitating the placement of these animals into loving and responsible permanent homes.

Our Vision:
Our vision is an educated community with increased shelter adoptions, decreased shelter populations, increased spayed and neutered pets, no pet overpopulation, reduced animal cruelty, and responsible animal ownership.

What We Do:
Farm Friends Rescue is an all-volunteer and foster-based nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organization dedicated in our efforts to:
-Provide shelter, food, medical attention, comfort, and love to stray, abandoned, neglected and injured animals rescued from local animal shelters or persons within our community.
-Place rescued animals in qualified volunteer foster homes so they can learn socialization with humans and other animals as well as receive love, affection, exercise, recreation, proper nutrition and medical care in a safe and loving environment.
-Sterilize, vaccinate, and microchip all of the animals within our care.
-Rehabilitate sick or injured animals within our care.
Assist lost animals in finding their rightful owners or seek new loving and safe homes for them if no owners can be located.
-Adopt out rescued animals to qualified, responsible and safe homes that have been properly screened through interviews, home visits, reference checks, and regular updates.
-Educate the public about the humane care of animals and encourage responsible pet ownership with an emphasis on spaying and neutering to prevent pet overpopulation.

Our Adoption Process...

We require an online adoption form to be completed. A home inspection and reference check are also required prior to adoption. A two-week trial adoption period allows new owners and pet opportunity to get acquainted. After this period, new owners can officially adopt or return pet to rescue. If adopting, an adoption contract is signed and adoption fee is paid at that time. Dog adoption fee is $150 and cat adoption fee is $75. Other animal adoption fees vary.
