Hello, my name is Lily! I am a young girl who came to the Rescue very pregnant. Shortly after my arrival, I gave birth to three beautiful, healthy puppies. I took such good care of them. My caring, nurturing personality really blossomed. My puppies are now 8 weeks old and venturing off to homes of their own, which means it's now my turn. I am a wonderful, happy dog. I love people and other dogs. Inside the house, I am mellow, laid back and happy to chill out with my people, lounging, napping and cuddling. Outside in the yard, I am ready to play! I love toys, especially my tennis ball, which is never far from me. I love to romp and wrestle with other dogs outside. I am friendly, loving and an all-around great dog. I am housetrained and crate trained. I love being petted and getting belly rubs. I am a total sweetheart who is looking for a family who will love me for life. I promise to never let you down and to always make you smile. Just give me a chance! You'll be so glad you did! Adoption fee: $75. Adopt a pair: $115. Fee includes testing, deworming, vaccinations, spay/neuter, 60 days of free pet insurance and microchip.

NOTE ABOUT BREED LABELING: Visual breed identification of dogs is unreliable and usually inaccurate. So, for most of our adoptable dogs, we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label.
Why is labeling a dog such a big deal? A label will stick with a dog for the rest of its life. A label can mean discrimination, losing its home or even death. Labels are a problem for the dogs when we, as the local experts on animals, allow adopters, politicians and community members to think that the label we assign can predict who that dog is or will be.
Complete the application at www.pawsforliferescue.org. We then arrange a location, date and time for you to meet some pets. If the meeting goes well and everyone is happy, you begin the mandatory, minimum two-week adjustment period with the pet as part of your family. You will pay the non-refundable adoption fee at the start of the two-week adjustment period. This pending period allows your new dog or cat time to adjust to their new home, new people, new routine, etc., and for you to decide if it's a match and the right pet for you. At the end of two weeks (some people extend the adjustment time as needed and that's fine too), if everyone is happy, then we finalize the adoption. Feel free to email if you have any questions.

NOTE: Some shelters have physical locations you can visit; some of these shelters may only have pets for a limited time, so please do not wait for a reply—just go visit the shelter! Other organizations are rescue groups run by busy volunteers who may take a while to reply.
