Behind Shadow's bright eyes and beautiful smile, there lies a very, very sad past. When he was only a few months old, some sick person wrapped him up in a white plastic bag and left him to die a horrible death right in the middle of a train track. An elderly woman who was walking by saw something moving inside the white plastic bag. She ran towards it and found a puppy! 

Feeling bad for the little puppy who would have been killed on the train track, this elderly woman took him home, named him Shadow (because it was his "shadow" that first caught her attention and helped her save him), and provided for him as best as she could on a fixed income. 

Last year, this elderly woman had a burglary in her home and Shadow was stolen by a few young kids. He was found on the streets, with scrapes all over his body, 48 hours later by Carson Animal Shelter. Sad! He was then reclaimed from the shelter, and is currently being cared for by the elderly woman and our foster volunteers. 

Shadow's guardian angel loves him dearly but has decided he would do best in a more stable environment. She would like Shadow to go to a family who has the time and energy to give him longer walks/runs, and has means to give him nutritious food, veterinary care. He hasn't had the best luck so we are all determined to give him a brighter future!

Shadow is now three years old, weighs 81 pounds, and has a clean bill of health. He is microchipped, current on all vaccines, and was neutered. He is completely potty-trained, knows how to sit, come, wait.

To say Shadow has an excellent, loving, friendly personality is quite an understatement. This boy is really the most perfect Pit Bull mix anyone could ever ask for! He gets along with all other animals, cuddles even with tiny Chihuahuas, has been around cats all his life, and is well-mannered! He is such an easy-going boy. He enjoys car rides, plays gently with other dogs, loves kids, you name it! 

 Shadow deserves a special, loving home. Will it be yours?

About The Fuzzy Pet Foundation - (TFPF)

About Our Rescue Group...

Founded in 2005, Fuzzy Dog and Cat Rescue, Inc. (FR) is a nonprofit animal rescue group. FR is organized by volunteers who are dedicated to saving homeless animals, reducing the rate of pet overpopulation, and educating the general public on animal welfare issues. Currently, our animals are fostered in a home environment by compassionate, pet-loving volunteers, as opposed to being boarded in kennels; this way we are able to socialize and work with each rescue animal on an individual basis. Our goal is to raise enough funds to establish a facility where we can house animals in a cage-free environment. We also wish to provide permanent, long-term care for senior and/or special needs dogs and cats in our future rescue facility.

Our Adoption Process...

1. Once you select an animal, you will be asked to complete an application form. Should you have any specific questions related to the application or the animal of interest, please contact us via e-mail.

2. Upon approval of your application, you will be contacted (via phone or e-mail) to be scheduled for a “meet and greet” with the animal at one of our adoption locations, and an orientation session with one of our adoptions counselors.

Please Note: We reserve the right to refuse an adoption to any family that we feel is not an ideal match for our animal. We also reserve the right to keep our reasons for denied applicants within our organization.

3. There will be a home-check for potential adoptions to ensure that the animal will be living in a safe and secure environment.

4. You will then be asked to sign a legally-binding contract with Fuzzy Dog and Cat Rescue, Inc., and to pay an adoption/donation fee.

5. Once all requirements are fulfilled, the animal will be released to you.

Please Note: If for any reason you are unable to keep or provide adequate care for the animal, we require that you return him/her back to Fuzzy Dog and Cat Rescue, Inc. Our animals are NOT to be transferred, sold, or given to a third-party.
