Welcome Catalina! Blind and abandoned, Catalina roamed the streets until an animal control officer brought her to the local shelter where she was given lots of love and care until she found her way to Pound Dog*Found Dog. Her specialists tell us Catalina was either born without sight or lost her sight shortly after birth. Don't feel sorry for her - after a day in a new environment she's got it down! Don't call her a poor girl - she'll happily jump on your lap or show you her favorite toys. Special needs dogs can compensate beautifully for a deficit and Catalina has proven that over and over. Catalina is full of fun, loves belly rubs and tussling with toys, but is just as happy snoozing at your feet or lounging with the resident dog in her foster home. Catalina's perfect home would be with adults or very mature respectful older kids, or a low-key household with a consistent routine. She loves car rides and little adventures but is uncomfortable with loud noises. She loves to be spoken to for direction, and she's a fast learner. While she is blind, she sees shadows and happily follows you around the house. She knows where you are at all times and settles in the room where her human is. At night, just like any other companion, she settles down on the couch with you until it's time for bed, at which time she willingly does in her crate to sleep. Catalina is not a high maintenance dog. All she needs is a few extra days to get acclimated to her new environment. Catalina is house trained, crate trained and rarely makes a sound. Spayed, microchipped and up to date with vaccinations. Interested in giving this beauty a home? Extra points for blind dog experience! Otherwise, we'll give you all the support you need! Come meet Catalina - living proof that love is blind. Applications and more information about Catalina at www.pounddogfounddog.org
Pound Dog*Found Dog Rescue, Inc., a New Jersey Nonprofit Organization, is an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) group of formed and incorporated in 2016. We are a small rescue targeting dogs who may be overlooked, yet fully adoptable and deserving of rescue. Our mission is to provide shelter and eventual permanent homes to dogs subject to cruelty, neglect, abuse and homelessness by focusing on dogs from high-kill shelters. When funding allows, we will target special needs dogs and those who require a little more time and care with our foster families. Our volunteers will assist a prospective adopter find the best companion for their lifestyle. Our rescued dogs are brought up to date on vaccinations, spayed or neutered, temperament tested with dogs, cats and children, and then placed in pre-approved permanent homes.
Come Meet Our Pets...
As a foster-based organization we have no physical facility and exist solely on the generosity of volunteers and foster families. Meet and greets will be arranged with a prospective adopter and the foster family.
Our Adoption Process...
Interested in meeting one of our dogs? We have an easy Adoption Application which will help us determine a good match for your family and your lifestyle. We require two references and the name of your current vet if you have a resident dog. A home visit will be arranged for a "meet and greet", and if all goes well your new companion will join you soon.
