Did you know November is Adopt A Senior Month?? Well, we have the perfect little senior for you and he is looking for his furever family. Meet Buster!! Buster is a purebred Pekingese. Now he's not a young whippersnapper by any means, Buster is a distinguished gentleman of 9 years. Like with most distinguished gentlemen Buster doesn't care for a lot of ruckus. He's great with other animals, cats and dogs, but he prefers a quieter environment when it come to children. Buster prefers to live with adullts and children over the age of 10. The fast movements of smaller children, terrify Buster and he doesn't feel safe.

Buster did test positive for heart-worms but is in the midst of treatment and doing fabulously! Heart-worms are only transmitted by a mosquitoes and are NOT simply contagious to other dogs through saliva or blood. Keeping your dog on prevention is imperative to keeping your dog heart-worm negative. Fortunately, heart worms are treatable and preventable. Please contact us if you would like more information to understand heart-worms better and Buster's current treatment, which is covered by RARE and no additional cost to his adopter. Buster deserves to be adopted and is looking forward to being heart-worm free!

About Rural Animal Rescue Effort (RARE)

About Our Rescue Group...

Rural Animal Rescue Effort (RARE) is an organization that is dedicated to saving animals in rural areas, mainly in 'pounds' and shelters, both high-kill and no-kill. There tends to be a higher overpopulation rate in rural areas due to lack of animal ordinances and alteration to prevent unwanted litters. Many animals are 'dumped' on country roads left to parish or end up at the local pound or animal shelter if they have an empty kennel. Many of these animals have a limited number of days before they are euthanized. In addition to placing animals in foster and adoptive homes, networking with rescues to assist in placement and adoption of animals, RARE also performs fundraisers for spay/neuters and other vetting to prevent further overpopulation and promote quality of life for the animals we save.

Our Adoption Process...

Adoption fees cover all vetting for the animals in our care, including vaccinations, Heart-worm test, Heart-worm treatment if needed, Feline Leukemia test, spay/neuter and may vary, depending on species.
