This Big and Beautiful girl is Bessie. She is the most loving dog you could meet. She is estimated to be 7 years old. She is people, dog and cat friendly. She came from Cleveland Animal Control at a whopping 95 lbs of love! We did a thyroid test to be sure she did not have a medical issue causing her weight gain and low and behold she will just need some good old exercise and more green beans instead of pizza crust! HA! Her bloodwork is good so this girl is now on a diet. We want her to reach a healthy weight of 75 lbs.
She is in foster care doing wonderful. Stay tuned for more photos. Adopters must be homeowners due to her breed. Adoption fee 150.00 ***10/31 Bessie is doing great with her diet and exercise program playing daily at Camp Bow Wow. She has lost 12 lbs and is now 83 lbs. YEAH

About FIDO's Companion Rescue Inc

About Our Rescue Group...

We operate out of Avon, Ohio. We primarily rescue dogs from the Lorain County Dog Kennel and other Dog Pounds before they are put to sleep. We secondarily assist with taking in homeless stray dogs and funding the spay/neuter of homeless dogs and cats for other independent local rescuers and vet clinics who take them in off the street and work to rehome them. Lastly, we provide and fund the transportation for all adopted dogs going to vet clinics for the Mandatory Spay & Neuter Program at the Lorain County Dog Kennel.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We do not have a shelter. Our rescued animals are kept in foster homes or boarding facilities primarily on the west side of Cleveland until loving forever homes can be found. Please remember we are all VOLUNTEERS who work full-time jobs. We will do our best to return your emails/calls within 24 hours.

Our Adoption Process...

If you wish to adopt one of our great pets, go to our website at and submit an application on our adoption page. Once your application is submitted and approved, we can set up a time for you to meet the dog(s) you are interested in. We do not operate on a first come, first serve basis. We strive to find the most compatible home for our dogs and look for adopters who are certain they want to make a lifetime commitment to our rescued dogs. We also require a home visit as a part of our adoption process. If we do not have an animal that interests you, we may be able to help put you in contact with the many other organizations with which we network. ADOPTION FEES - Individual fees apply based on each dog rescued. See individual dog's bio for adoption fees that apply.
