Facts about Lotus

  • Breed: Dalmatian
  • Color: White - With Black
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Male
When the new owners of a family home, brought in construction workers to start renovation on their new home-- little did they know that something very precious was left behind on the property. Believe it or not this sight of demolition and rubble with the house being torn apart piece by piece, is where Lotus, a frighteningly underweight Dalmatian and her companion Meadow would wait and wait for their owners to come back. Sadly, the owners had moved abandoning the pair. There is no love greater than the love of a dog for its human and for Lotus and Meadow who never even leave through the hole in the fence, they would wait night after night with their heads lying on their front step hoping their owners were coming back for them. The construction workers were kind enough to leave food and water for the dogs, but the dogs were overwhelmed with stress that in turn is affecting their well being, not to mention they were tortured with fly bites, fleas and ticks chewing at their skin. Please help us show these dogs that they haven't been forgotten....

About DogTag: You're It!

About Our Rescue Group...

The name of our Independent Rescue group is called DogTag: You're It! We are dedicated and devoted rescuers of the mistreated, relinquished, and neglected animals that wander into our lives. From the streets, to the sheltered, those abandoned, and those turned over unwanted--our mission is to prove to the innocent and defenseless creatures we rescue, that they will not only be wanted and loved from this moment forward, but that they only have bright and hopeful futures to look forward to as beloved members of the DogTag: You're It! family and ultimately their new family in a forever home.

We work hard to make sure each and every one of our rescue pups is healthy and treated medically before placing them in any foster or forever home. Each and every one of our rescues receive medical care immediately upon rescue without a moment's hesitation. Included in vetting is a spay/neuter procedure, microchip, heartworm and fecal tests, Parvo test for puppies, complete vaccinations, and dental if age 2 years and up even younger if needed. They also get treated with monthly with flea/parasite preventative.

We also rescue senior and medical dogs, we provide all medical interventions requested by our veterinarians and consult or treatment by specialists. Our goal is to not rush their adoption, but to ensure that each one of our precious pups will only be in a home as a loved and cherished member of the DogTag: You're It family to their new forever home.

Our Adoption Process...

We require an adoption application to be filled out prior to arranging any home-meetings as we have to work with our fosters schedules as well as our own. Application review can take up to anywhere from 1-2 weeks depending on how busy we are. Applications MUST be submitted to us within 3 days of receiving to be considered. ONLY applicants we approve to proceed with adoption will be contacted. If you have not received a response after 2 weeks, please know your application had been reviewed and considered, but not chosen. Doggie doors are NOT permitted per our policy and we will ONLY proceed with adoption if it's removed completely.

Included in the application is a veterinarian reference check as well as work or personal reference check. We never adopt out on a first come, first serve basis because we consider this a lifelong commitment and we want to be certain that we are making the best decision for both the forever family and our rescue. No one knows our rescues better than we do and we want to be certain that we consider their individuality when choosing their home. At the time of the home screening we will observe the interaction of our rescue with each and every member of the household including the family pets.

When our rescue goes to his or her new home, he or she will be up to date with all medical, current on vaccinations, microchipped, spayed or neutered, treated with Revolution a high quality flea/parasite preventative, as well as supplied with a collar, leash, and Canine Friendly harness. We also feed all of our rescues while they have been in foster homes, grain-free and high quality nutritious food such as Pulsar, Orijen, and Wellness. It is mandated for all of our puppies to attend puppy obedience classes within two months of their adoption.

We take such special care of our pups and we want to be completely positive that we place them in a home perfect for that particular dog. We require an adoption application and a home screening to make sure our safety standards are met. The adoption donation fee ranges from $320 to $420 for our rescues which includes spay/neuter, full vaccination, fecal test, heartworm test, microchip, in many cases dental cleaning, flea/parasite preventative, collar, and harness.

The adoption donation fee will allow us to continue to help our other rescues, some of which are medical and senior dogs in permanent foster home.
