Facts about Asha

  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 78132

Asha was a stray in a small rural southern animal control where the animal control officer said "we might as well put her down, no one will come for an old dog to adopt or rescue". We just didn't agree and had to save her. Asha is probably 10-12 years old, and is the happiest overweight dog on earth. She has arthritis and mobility issues due to her size and age, but both will improve as she loses weight slowly and after she has had a little time on supplements and pain medications that she started when she arrived at our rescue. She is fine with other dogs, we doubt she could have an issue with cats and even if she did she certainly couldn't catch one! Asha lost her family through no fault of her own and now finds herself with strangers at the end of her life. She would be happiest in a family without a lot of chaos and noise. She would be fine with quiet, gentle children, and would make a fine reading buddy for a small child. Asha will have had a complete physical, blood tests, and all of her immunizations updated prior to adoption. We are hoping to place Asha quickly so she can settle in with her forever family to not miss a single minute being the spoiled loved baby she deserves to be. Would you like to meet Asha and add her to your family? www.arrowdogrescue.org/application is the first step. Your own pets must be up to date on vaccines, heart worm negative and on preventative, indoor pets, and spayed/neutered. A home visit is a part of this adoption process. Asha's adoption fee is adopter's choice due to her age and special needs. Adoption fees are used to pay for a dog's vet bills, we ask that her adopter consider this in their donation. Asha will go home with a month's worth of any medications or supplements she is on, food, collar, and a whole countries worth of love and hope. She is fostered in central Illinois.

About ARROW Animal Rescue Revolution on Wheels

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a family run no kill foster based dog rescue located in Normal, IL with foster homes all across the state of Illinois. We rescue dogs from animal control and animal shelters in Missouri, Kentucky, Texas, Illinois and Iowa with more states being added all the time. We also accept owner relinquishments. We fully vet all of the dogs in our rescue, place them in loving foster homes, often with other dogs, cats and kids. We find them forever homes through sites like this as well as Facebook, and Petfinder. We have been involved in rescue for 3 years with other rescues but felt that we would have made other decisions when it comes to euthanizing, how dogs were being treated, and the adoption process. We thought we could do a better job. We only euthanize dogs in our rescue if they are in pain or suffering and cannot be helped. We provide training to dogs that need this prior to adoption.

We also have a pet matching service so if you don't see what you are looking for on our rescue page, please message us and we can help you find the perfect pet, have it transported to us, vet it, and make it available for adoption to you!

Our Adoption Process...

All adopters must fill out an application to adopt on our website. We call all references listed including veterinarian, personal, and condo board or landlord, and our goal is to approve application within 5 days. You are welcome to meet any of our dogs in their foster homes once you have an approved application. Since we are a small family run rescue with a few volunteers at times when there is a high volume of applications it may take longer than 5 days to process your application. You are free to contact us at any point at arrowdogrescue@gmail.com to check on the status of your application.

After application is approved, we do a home visit either prior to or at the time of the adoption. Minimum adoption donations is $275 for adults and $350 for puppies 9 months or under. Some dogs have sponsorships by donors which will reduce the cost for the adopter. Payment by Paypal to arrowdogrescue@gmail.com or in cash at the time of the adoption.

There is an adoption contract stipulating that you return the dog to our rescue if for any reason you are not able to keep them. The dog's microchip will be registered to the rescue for the life of the dog. You will be required to keep your pup on heart worm preventative year around.
