08/12/2016:  Zeus was returned back to Pet Rescue by Judy.  His poor owner cried so much returning him.  His neighbors in his building told him it was cruel to keep him alive and he should be forced to put Zeus down.  So to avoid having Zeus put down he gave him back to us.  Let me tell you a little about Zeus.  He is housetrained, loves to sit in your lap and cuddle with you to stay warm.  He eats basically wet food, likes other dogs and enjoys going for walks on his leash.  Zeus is partially blind and deaf.  Won't you please open your heart and home to help Zeus have a home again.

September foster update:   Zeus was examined by an eye specialist and diagnosed with Endothelial Dystrophy in both eyes and possible Glaucoma in his left eye.    He is on multiple eye drops at this time, some 4x daily, and will continue on at least some of them for the rest of his life.  He does well getting around the house and his ear and skin infections are cleared up   He does need medicated baths at least once or twice weekly.   He spends much of the time sleeping and he eats mainly dry food.   He loves to be petted and will nudge you for more when you stop.   Zeus loves to lay in the sun and will go outside and just throw himself down on the driveway in the sun.   We have to make him come in so he doesn't get overheated!     He does not like getting up early and will usually just lay quietly in one of the dog beds or crates and wait until we feed everybody.   Once he has had his breakfast and water, THEN he will ask to go out!   We have multiple dog crates and beds around the house and he seems to like them all!   He is cautious while getting around but finds his way where he wants to go!

Poor Zeus was left outside our building.  Judy got to work at 5:30 a.m. and there he was left in a carrier crate.  He had nails that were so overgrown he couldn't even walk and cataracts in both eyes.  Judy sent him to the vet to get checked out.  He is not old our vet said about 5.  He will melt your heart.  He is so sweet and quiet and loves to get taken outside for a walk.  If you want a lap dog this is the one.  He is ready for adoption...Honestly he is such a great dog that I am shocked that he has not been adopted!Due to his limited eyesight, Zeus would do best in a home without an inground pool or flights of stairs.   Also, since he startles easily, he would do best with only older, very considerate children.

About Pet Rescue By Judy

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a private, non-profit rescue located in Sanford, Florida, dedicated to the rescue cats and dogs. Many of them come to us with medical needs. They are doctored to the best of our ability and resources.

Our most urgent goal is to rescue animals that are abandoned or in distress, update their vaccines, and find good new homes for them. But we attempt to be more proactive than that. It is our heartfelt desire to prevent any animal from the need to be "rescued." With that vision in mind, we take a three-prong approach through the education of pet owners and the general public about:
- proper care of animals, including correct diet of good quality food, fresh clean water, daily exercise, and lots of love
- spaying and neutering companion animals (dogs and cats) in order to prevent euthanasia and over-population
- low-cost spay/neuter clinics and wellness centers in their local community

Come Meet Our Pets...

Although many of our pets are cared for at our facility in Sanford, many others are in private foster homes. To arrange a meet, it is best to first complete an online adoption application so that we can set up a meeting. You can access complete information on our pets plus the adoption application on our website, www.petrescuebyjudy.com. Adoptions are held at our Sanford Adoption Center as well as our Oviedo Mall Adoption Center.

Our Adoption Process...
