Ready to Apply?
You will want to have your veterinary and/or personal reference information handy, as well as landlord information if you are a renter, to fill out the application completely.
• We will not pursue an incomplete application
• Once complete, you can speed up process by contacting your vet's office and giving them permission to release information. We may dismiss the application if this is not completed.
• Volunteers handle dozens of applications at a time so we do not guarantee contact with everyone. We try our best, but we are working around jobs, kids, and of course, dogs.
•Adoptions generally take longer than 4 days to process but there is no set time frame. We do the best we can as a non-profit, so please be patient.
My name is Rocky...well because I am a fighter! I had an old leg injury that looks painful, but it isn't and it doesn't really slow me down much. I was rescued from the local animal control with no history on me or what happened...I just want to say I am over it and want to move forward and enjoy my life with a family who wont judge me based on my appearance. I am a very sweet dog who is currently being fostered with small children and dogs of all sizes, cats, and even small reptiles. Rocky has been examined by multiple veterinarians who concur that surgery is not necessary and that his leg causes him no pain.
Activities I enjoy are running and playing with toys and my family.
People would describe me as: Curious, Playful, Social butterfly, Active, Lap Loving.
My adoption fee is $100 which covers all of my medical care including neuter, microchip, rabies, vaccinations, and de-wormers.
