I am already neutered, housetrained, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, and good with kids.
On April 2 I was hit by a car and boy, did it hurt. No one would take me to the vet, I think they just didn't have the funds. Then Ms. Pat, my fabulous foster mom, came along. She saw that I was in pain and in a few days she noticed I wasn't moving too much outside. She took me to the vet and they said I had a broken femur way up near the hip so I could not get a cast. While there Ms Pat got me all of my vaccinations, neutered, made sure I was heartworm negative and got me all cleaned up. I'm pretty smart and have lots of energy. Ms Pat taught me how to "play" with toys and how to eat out of a bowl. I'm pretty good at both now. I can even let her know when I need to go out. Now the leash is a different thing. I don't know why I need it. I grew up on the streets so I'm used to running free, but with some reassurance on the leash, I'll take to it in no time. Ms Pat has a small dog that I've come to realize is not going anywhere. It took me a few days to get used to her but now we coexist. So even though I get along with this little furball, I am an alpha dog and it's best to either go to a home where I can be the only dog OR go to a home with a very laid back female dog and experienced dog owner that can gently remind me I'm not in charge. I've been around kids of all ages and although I'm good with kids, my foster mom thinks it's best I don't go to a home with kids under 5 years old in case I knock them over. If you or anyone you know is interested in giving me my forever home, please contact Courtney at Courtney@savinggraceanimalrescue.com and/or complete an adoption application under the Forms tab at www.savinggraceanimalrescue.com I'm located in Birmingham, AL but can easily make my way to you via a nice cozy transport!
Saving Grace Animal Rescue is a Christian-based, nonprofit organization that strives to assist others in helping animals. We recognize how difficult and overwhelming it can be to rescue and foster animals so that’s where we come in. Although we do not yet have a shelter, we are able to foster animals through a network of volunteers. We also assist people by informing them of the resources located in Birmingham, Alabama, that can make their efforts that much easier. We are always in need of foster homes so the more we have, the more SGAR can help. Contact us if you or anyone you know of has the space and desire to take in a homeless pet while we find them their furever homes.

Our Adoption Process...
Adoption fees for canines and felines are $100.00. If a puppy or kitten has not been sterilized at the time of adoption, a spay/neuter certificate is given to the adopting parents. All applicants must fill out an application and contract agreement. We do perform vet reference checks as well as a home inspections (for bully breeds).
For out-of-state adoptions, an additional charge will be included to cover the cost of transporting the dog as well as the health certificate (approximately $150.00 thus a total of $250.00).
