Facts about Rusty

  • Breed: Shepherd (Unknown Type) Mix
  • Color: Brown/Chocolate - With Black
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Male
This is Cowboy, he is a shepherd mix. He was rescued from death row in TX and moved up last year to be with his new family in Nebraska. He is a great boy but it is not the right home for him. He needs an active family or a farm to romp around. He is about 3 years old, UTD on all shots. He is good around other dogs and people. From the original adopter:
"this time I think his destination needs to be suited more toward the kind of dog he really is - loving, goofy, protective, pushy, highly intelligent (and needing the stimulation that such an intelligence yearns for). He likes structure, very very much, almost as much as he likes riding in the car with the window down.

About Purple Power Animal Welfare Society

About Our Shelter...

Our mission is to help homeless pets! There was a huge need in the Manhattan community for another rescue effort. We are a caring network of foster homes who provide TLC and time for that pet to find their 'furever' home. We are all volunteers, dedicated to our mission. We believe that euthanasia of perfectly adoptable pets is unacceptable. The sterilization of pets is critical in reducing the number of unwanted pets, as well as closing down bad breeders everywhere.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our pets are showcased every Saturday at Petco/PetSmart in Manhattan, KS. Our summer hours are non to 5 PM. Our cats are present for adoption events Saturday and Sunday at these locations. We also do special events in the Manhattan community with our dogs as opportunity presents itself.

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption process is easy; we require an application in which we contact references and vets. Once approved the adopter signs an adoption contract that specifies that the pet will come back to us if they can not keep the pet int he future. We consider all of our adoptions as 'trial' adoptions; if the pet is not a good fit for the family, the pet comes back to us, no problem. Our adoptions fees for adult dogs are $160. For puppies the fee is $160 with a $80 deposit returned when the pet is spayed/neutered. Adoption fees for cats is $75.
