Proudly present Julian, - again (dated October 18)

this little young, loyal and funny dog hopes that someone here in WA falls for him.

JULIAN was a stray dog that possibly was just left behind in a back yard, but when he wandered off he was hit by a car . He had a broken elbow and was left on the street. Animal Control picked him up and brought him to the Moreno Valley shelter in CA last end of June. Due to the fact that the shelters will not keep a dog that needs surgery (hence non-adoptable for them) he was put on the "at risk" list which means euthanization list. Rescue at that time are sometimes alerted - mostly it is the rescue network that then brings these cases to light.

AnimalDefense heard about him and another dog and pulled them to safety. Julian had surgery on July 7, and will have to be restrained to little activity until mid August. then we hope the bandage can be taken off and the fracture has healed.
His elbow fracture has healed and he runs around but he should not be exposed all the time to intense activity (e.g. running) as he will always be limping a bit. it is not bothering him nor is it very prevalent.

JULIAN was adopted but his owner will go through some difficult times based on a surgery followed by a long recovery and thought it would be fair to Julian to find him another home.
Until then Julian will enjoy the company of 3 dogs and 3 cats in the home of the Founder of on Orcas Island.

JULIAN is anxious to meet you.
He says that he will not move from your side all day, He is alert when someone comes to the door and he will make you smile and enlighten your day. He is good with any size of dog, plays with the cats, and sometimes thinks he can "ride" on them.

If you are interested in Julian please email me at and I will send you an application form.

Meet this resilient survivor.

About AnimalDefense

About Our Rescue Group...

AnimalDefense Rescue is a small non-profit organization dedicated to rescuing primarily dogs from high-kill shelters in mostly CA, as well as homeless, lost and abandoned animals in WA , and rehoming from owners who can no longer care for them for important reasons. By building and working with committed and dog-savvy foster homes, and boarding facilities, we will be able to rescue Dogs every year, work with local veterinarians to make sure future adoption homes will have a clean and complete health record for the adopted dog, and find them well-matched, carefully screened and chosen adoption home to ensure the dog will NEVER be returned to a shelter again in his lifetime.
AnimalDefense Rescue will serve as a resource to pet owners by providing education and information on responsible pet ownership, including the importance of spay/neuter, positive behavior training, and good nutrition.

Our Adoption Process...

All AnimalDefense Rescue dogs are boarded or placed in foster homes until permanent, loving homes are found. The dogs are vaccinated, spayed or neutered, microchipped and given any necessary medical treatment during this time period.
If you have seen an AnimalDefense Rescue dog that you are interested in adopting, the process is as follows:
Step 1: The Application
Each prospective owner fills out an adoption application. All applicants must live in WA (exceptions are possible), and we ask that children in your home are at least ten years old. We usually have no limited information of history of our rescue dogs and are therefore very careful about placing them in households with children.
If you and the dog you would like to adopt seem to be well matched, we will respond to your application by email. Feel free to contact us at any time regarding the status of your application.
Step 2: The Meeting
Once your application is approved, an appointment can be made to meet the dog. You can meet the dog privately or at –if applicable- at one an adoption events, in which we participate occasionally.
We require that everyone in the immediate family, including your current dog (if you have one) come to the appointment to meet your potential new dog. Adopting a dog is a big family decision and requires a commitment from everyone. If you currently own a dog, it must be up to date on shots, spayed/neutered and wear an ID tag.
At the appointment, we will help you assess whether the dog is a good match for your lifestyle and your family or not. We can also answer any questions you may have about the adoption process.
We will then proceed with a home check. Dogs from animal shelters can be amazing escape artists. By visiting your home, we can help you identify potential escape routes, and keep your new dog safe and secure.
Step 3: The Adoption

Before you bring your new dog home, you must sign an Adoption agreement with Animal Defense Rescue. In addition, a $ 375$ adoption fee is requested. The adoption donation is non-refundable.
Please remember that adoption contributions barely cover our expenses and only defray the costs. Additional donations are greatly appreciated and will help us continue our life-saving work.
Step 4: Post Adoption Follow Up
Our goal is to help you enjoy life with your new dog to the fullest extent possible. If issues arise, or you just need some good advice, we are happy to do follow-up counseling by telephone or in person. We can also suggest local dog trainers.
