This little cutie was dumped at a deer camp and left to starve and fend for herself. ​She's ADORABLE and doesn't hold her ordeal against anyone. She's friendly and loves everyone. Apply at or come meet her during our drop in hours. Please let us know you are coming so we can have her here as she is in a foster home. Here's what her foster mom says: She is a complete cuddle bug. She loves people, cuddling, burying herself under blankets. She will be completely attached to whoever is lucky to be her adopter. She is fine with dogs but doesn't need another dog. Her favorite spot is in your arms. She loves both men and women. She is really quiet so far and does not react to people visiting. She and my older dog sniff each other but that's it. She would be perfectly fine without another dog in the family. I hope she finds an amazing family!

About Save A Dog

About Our Shelter...

Save A Dog is a humane society whose primary focus is rescuing and rehoming abandoned dogs. We began 10 years ago as an all-breed, all-volunteer dog rescue group and ran out of our founder's home for nine years. Finally we have a lovely facility and kennel which we are renting to own in Sudbury, Mass. Save A Dog is a privately funded 501(c)3 organization. Tax ID number is 04-3476937. Our rescued dogs are up to date on the core vaccines and the adult dogs are spayed or neutered prior to adoption. We do not spay and neuter puppies as it has been proven that puppies need hormones for proper bone development. As well, they have developing immune systems and need to have their puppy vaccines and rabies underway before opening them up to surgery. We use a holistic protocol in caring for our rescued dogs and we have found that we are able to bring the dogs to optimal health without all the conventional pharmaceuticals that most shelters use. Save A Dog provides supplements and a healthy diet to boost the rescued dogsÕ immune systems. The new arrivals residing at the kennel listen to Òanimal healingÓ music during their stay and they also benefit from aromatherapy. Our founder, Shirley Moore, has studied homeopathy for a number of years and provides homeopathic remedies to dogs who have minor medical issues, and with good results. This saves the shelter in extraneous medical costs as does our visiting veterinarian, Dr. Betsy Johnson, who donates many hours of her own time to providing medical care for dogs in need.

Save A Dog maintains an ID system on all adopted dogs with a database of adopter information. This makes it easy to reunite the dogs with their adopters should they become lost. We have a solid return policy so that any dog adopted through Save A Dog will not end up in danger of being euthanized again. Every dog we rescue is celebrated and doted on by our dog-loving volunteers. We have a training program for adopters as well as newsletter-follow-ups with advice on training, health, and places to go with your dog. Many of our adopters have returned for a second dog and we have a very strong showing at our alumni events as well.

Our Adoption Process...

Adoption fee is from $350-375 for spayed or neutered adults and $425 for puppies with a $50 rebate when your pup is old enough to be altered. We prefer an application prior to inviting you to come meet the dogs, but we have drop in hours during the weekend as posted on our Web site. We believe in making a match based on your application and interaction with the dog or pup and it helps if all decision makers come to the appointment to meet the dog. Our process is that once you have met the dog and both parties feel it is a good match, then you may leave a $50 deposit to hold the dog for 24 hours while we check your references and/or conduct a home visit. The deposit is nonrefundable. If you change your mind, it is used as a donation. If you continue with the adoption, the fee is deducted from your total adoption fee.
