Facts about Astrid
Breed: German Shepherd Dog Mix
Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
"Meet Astrid: She has had a rough start at life. She has been chained outside her whole life until AC picked her up. She is about 3yrs old, 57lbs Black German Shepherd with a tint of red when the sun hits it. She is good with dogs when properly introduced, as she hasn't had the best history with them (got a chunk missing from both ears and small white hairs on her face and paws that were once scares from a dog). She is currently being potty trained (which she's learning really fast) and will be starting with kennel training soon. She will not be good with cats or small dogs as she has a high prey drive. She LOVES people tho and is good with kids as well. She is still skinny and needs to gain at least another 10lbs. She is eager to learn and please her person. Astrid is utd on shots, flea/tick prevention, spayed, and microchipped."
Our mission is to help homeless pets! There was a huge need in the Manhattan community for another rescue effort. We are a caring network of foster homes who provide TLC and time for that pet to find their 'furever' home. We are all volunteers, dedicated to our mission. We believe that euthanasia of perfectly adoptable pets is unacceptable. The sterilization of pets is critical in reducing the number of unwanted pets, as well as closing down bad breeders everywhere.
Come Meet Our Pets...
Our pets are showcased every Saturday at Petco/PetSmart in Manhattan, KS. Our summer hours are non to 5 PM. Our cats are present for adoption events Saturday and Sunday at these locations. We also do special events in the Manhattan community with our dogs as opportunity presents itself.
Our Adoption Process...
Our adoption process is easy; we require an application in which we contact references and vets. Once approved the adopter signs an adoption contract that specifies that the pet will come back to us if they can not keep the pet int he future. We consider all of our adoptions as 'trial' adoptions; if the pet is not a good fit for the family, the pet comes back to us, no problem. Our adoptions fees for adult dogs are $160. For puppies the fee is $160 with a $80 deposit returned when the pet is spayed/neutered. Adoption fees for cats is $75.
