My name is Ellie Mae,

I realize that I may be eye catching and very beautiful, but I was still abandoned by my previous humans. You see, I was born in an area where many people don't treat their dogs as family. Sounds wrong, don't you think? Well, I agree! The most important thing is, that I find a family now that does know the true meaning of commitment and will love me forever and let me be there furchild. I am around 45 lbs, good with people and other dogs. However, I am a little hyper, so I probably will knock a small child down without meaning to. Big kids are ok though!

I think you should apply for me and see if I could be the right girl for you!


Please visit for foster and adoption applications or for additional information.

All of our pets are or will be spayed/neutered, up to date on all vaccines prior to adoption. Please complete the application on our website and we will call you to answer any questions you may have.

I am light heart-worm positive; however, my treatment will be included in my adoption, at no additional cost. It's not as scary as you think and I will be heart-worm negative before you know it! Please ask for more information on me and apply for me today! Please apply online at

My adoption fee is $175.00.

Our adoption fees not only help the animal being adopted, but they also help to cover heartworm treatments and other treatable ailments that many animals, that would otherwise be euthanized, need to be made available for adoption.

Thank you for choosing to adopt, foster, or aid in the rescue efforts of RARE!

About Rural Animal Rescue Effort (RARE)

About Our Rescue Group...

Rural Animal Rescue Effort (RARE) is an organization that is dedicated to saving animals in rural areas, mainly in 'pounds' and shelters, both high-kill and no-kill. There tends to be a higher overpopulation rate in rural areas due to lack of animal ordinances and alteration to prevent unwanted litters. Many animals are 'dumped' on country roads left to parish or end up at the local pound or animal shelter if they have an empty kennel. Many of these animals have a limited number of days before they are euthanized. In addition to placing animals in foster and adoptive homes, networking with rescues to assist in placement and adoption of animals, RARE also performs fundraisers for spay/neuters and other vetting to prevent further overpopulation and promote quality of life for the animals we save.

Our Adoption Process...

Adoption fees cover all vetting for the animals in our care, including vaccinations, Heart-worm test, Heart-worm treatment if needed, Feline Leukemia test, spay/neuter and may vary, depending on species.

Fosters and Adopters will be required to complete an application with personal and Veterinary references. A home visit is also required.
RESCUES, please contact us regarding pull information or pull fee, if any, depending on vetting already provided by RARE.
