Tanya is a sweet girl who is calm and friendly. She is a happy, loving girl who was found with her 4 pups on the island of Puerto Rico. Her pups made the journey to NJ first, and all have been adopted into loving homes. Now Tonia is here, and would like the chance for a forever home of her own.

She is under 25 pounds. She is a friendly girl with lots of personality. When you first meet her she may seem to be too excited but, she settles down quickly and is really a calm girl who likes a nice walk where she can say hello to all the neighbors and plenty of time on the sofa! Cats? Not so much!

All our dogs/pups are spayed/neutered and microchipped prior to adoption. They have been dewormed and are current on vaccinations. Our adoption fee includes 30 days of complimentary medical insurance for your new pet. Breed and size is frequently a guess and can not be guaranteed.
Our dogs are fostered on a private residence, we do not have a free standing shelter. They live on a farm where they run and play with other dogs, cats, horses, and barnyard fowl.
Initial contact with us must be made through e-mail.
E-mail ARFofMercer@gmail.com for an adoption application or with any questions. Once your adoption application is approved, you will be invited to meet our dogs/puppies.

About ARF of Mercer

About Our Rescue Group...

Our dogs and puppies are primarily Sato's, rescued from Puerto Rico in the Rincon area (visit www.barksofhope.com).They are flown to Philadelphia airport, immediately vetted, and treated for internal and external parasites. One to two weeks after arrival, once we know they are healthy and ready for homes, they are spayed/neutered and microchipped prior to adoption. The mother dogs in PR are spayed through a voucher program run by Barks of Hope and other local rescue groups.
Puerto Rico has a terrible problem with unwanted dogs, litters are discarded on the side of the road, in trash cans, and dumped in the woods. If brought to a shelter, the kill rate is 94%. We are always looking for tourists and business people willing to carry on pups to get them out of a bad situation and into loving, forever homes.
