Meet our love bug, AMY! To ADOPT, please e-mail us here:

Amy was found hobbling around in an industrial alley way. She had been hit by a car and no one stopped to help. She was found cowering in fear and crying in pain. Amy's x-rays showed that she had a fracture in her hind-leg. Despite the pain Amy was experiencing at the time of her rescue, she never stopped wagging her tail and giving us kisses. 

Amy was treated for her injuries under the care of The Fuzzy Pet Foundation. Surgery was not needed for her hind-leg but she was given plenty of physical therapy these past months. She now has a clean bill of health! She is three years old and weighs 65 pounds. 

Amy is active, LOVES to go out on leash walks. She tends to pull forward while on her leash walks, but after a while she calms down. She will do anything to please people. And she gives great hugs and kisses. Amy thinks she is a lap dog! She does great in the car as well. Amy plays fetch, but she doesn't always bring the ball back because it's her favorite toy!

An ideal home for Amy would be an active family (without young kids) who can take her out on long, brisk walks. She needs a nurturing, responsible, and caring family. Amy is not crazy about every single dog/cat she meets, but there have been a handful of small to large-sized dogs she absolutely adored to pieces. When she is outdoors, she is active. When she is indoors, she flops to her side for belly rubs and wants to cuddle day and night! 

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.
