Allie is an adult female Lab (mix?), a solidly built gentle girl who is fostered with kids ages 2 years and up, other dogs of varying sizes, and cats, and is very easy to get along with. She's a more laid back and gentle Lab girl, quieter, who still very much enjoys her daily walks, the wading pool, and leaning against your legs just to make sure you know she's there if you need her. House training is going very well, and she crates for the workday. We suspect she was previously an outside dog, but she sure is enjoying her inside the house time now. Allie is available after Nov. 12th. Please reference 'Allie Lab' when you email.

This HHK9 canine has tested positive for a heartworm or tick borne disease and treatment will be done through our vet before an adoption is finalized, so that we can do our part to ensure a healthy happy dog joins your home. Heartworm treatment consists of a 2 day treatment at the vet followed by 4 weeks of restricted activity, and placement timing is on an individual case by case at the comfort level of the foster and adopter. Tick diseases are treated through oral antibiotics sent home with an adopter by the rescue.

Requirements: No special requirements

You can email kladams4545@gmail.com with questions and for a preadopt application. This dog has been spayed/neutered, vaccinated as age appropriate, tested for heartworm disease if age appropriate, and dewormed.

About Heading Home K9 Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

We are dedicated to rescuing homeless and unwanted animals. We are a non-profit, 501(c) 3-tax exempt, no-kill dog rescue and placement organization based in Minnesota. Although our focus is primarily on rescuing dogs, we sometimes rescue cats & kittens as well. We are an independent organization and depend solely on adoption fees, fundraisers, and donations to operate. We receive NO government support. We try our best to match the dogs with the needs, wants, personalities, and lifestyles of potential adopters to ensure a healthy, happy, & permanent home. All Heading Home K-9 dogs must live indoors. Dogs are social pack animals by nature and we want them to be able to have all of the companionship, love, & attention they deserve, as well as a chance to bond with the family.

We rescue all types of dogs, ranging from small to large breeds. Roughly 40% of the dogs we rescue are purebred while the other 60% are mixed breeds. We will tell you about each dog's history, personality, & behavior, including whether or not they are good which children and other pets, their exercise needs, & other important information.

Our Adoption Process...

Did you see a dog that caught your eye? Ready to start the adoption process? Happy to help! Feel free to email the dog's listed contact with any questions you have...the dogs live in our homes with us so we know them very well.

Fosters can provide you with a preadopt application. We read through the application, check references, and once approved (we aim for 24-48 hours to approve or deny), we set up a visit with you and the foster home or direct you to an adoption event to meet the dog(s). Fosters are more than happy to answer questions that arise. We all want a good match the first time, and a successful experience for the adopter and the dog.

After meeting, you can choose to outright adopt, or do a foster to adopt, where you complete an extra form and gain a 1-2 week period to see how the dog adjusts, and if the fit between the dog and your home is right. We encourage adopters to give it a MINIMUM of 3 days. Returning a dog before that period means it never had a chance to settle in and show you what the true personality is like. Moving dogs between homes is stressful and not in the dog's best interests. We are here to support you after adoption also, answering questions and helping make the process as positive as we can. We highly recommend you read the tips in this packet (Adopting 101) before bringing your new dog home...it will help greatly ease the transition and make it a positive experience for everyone!

Most of our adoption fees are in the $300-350 range, but range from a donation in special circumstances to a higher fee for a highly adoptable, vetted, healthy puppy to help offset the losses of our hardship case dogs.

All dogs and puppies have been spayed/neutered, dewomed, vaccinated, and micro-chipped upon adoption. In addition, adult dogs are tested for heartworm and tick diseases. Because we provide a number of special procedures such as parvo treatments when needed, dentals, surgeries, treatment for heartworm and Lyme disease, mange, and so on we spread the cost of these special treatments among all of the dogs in our program. Minnesota state sales tax is assessed, collected, and paid on each adoption.

From time to time we’re asked “Why are your adoption fees so high?” Heading Home K9 rescue was formed to be able to help the neediest of strays... the seniors, the heartworm positive, the ones needing surgeries, and the ones often passed by with other rescues. These costs to support our mission are spread out between all dogs in the rescue so we can stay afloat. Besides medical fees, we also have to pay to feed the dogs and buy crates as needed. We work hard to make a match for appropriate adopters and have some options to work with payments by post dated check in some exceptional cases, but otherwise require an adoption fee and signed contract at time of adoption.
