AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION!

Meet Rio! Rio is a very sweet, pretty, shy girl who was found running on the freeway, and had to be darted with sedation in order to rescue her.  She is a 1.2 year old, mostly Black, Terrier mix who weighs 28 pounds. SPOT pulled her from the shelter where she was frightened and confused.  Since being in the loving care of her foster mama, Rio is beginning to feel safe and secure.  Rio is good with other dogs, is crate and house trained, sleeps in her own doggie bed at night, and loves her twice daily walks.  She is very smart and understands which furniture she is allowed upon and which are off limits.  She loves to romp and play with other dogs she meets and she carries her little toys all around the house.  Rio is quite shy initially and would love a very patient family. If they had another pooch in the home, all the better.   There is nothing quite as fulfilling as helping a girl like Rio learn to trust humans and embrace the joys of living in loving home! Want to meet Rio?  Contact SPOT at info@spotsavespets.org to arrange a meet-n-greet today! Adoption fee: $225. Fee includes her spay, current vaccinations, and microchip.

About SPOT (Saving Pets One at a Time)

About Our Rescue Group...

SPOT was created to fill the need to save animals who “fall through the cracks” in our sheltering system. Local shelters are overwhelmed—they receive so many strays and owner turn-ins that they run out of space and have to kill thousands of animals each year. The majority of these animals are healthy and simply need to be placed into a home. Others are medical cases which require some work, but do not have life-threatening diseases or injuries. And a few have some moderate behavior issues; we work with specialists to correct these behaviors before finding them their forever home. The bottom line is SPOT can save these lives.

Come Meet Our Pets...

All of the SPOT pets are in foster homes. To meet an animal, please email us. We can tell you when the next adoption event at a local pet store will be held, or we can set up a time to meet with you.

Our Adoption Process...

SPOT adopts puppies less than 1 year- $325, dogs 1-5 yr- $225, 6 yr- $150. Our kittens are $125 and teenagers and adults are much less. We often have low pricing during kitten season.
We ask you to complete an adoption application. A home check will be scheduled to be sure there are no inadvertent dangers in your home or yard. A meet and greet will be arranged so that your whole family can meet your new pet before adopting him/her. We want to make sure it is a good fit since it is a commitment for the animal’s lifetime.
