This sweet and oh so loving lady is Artemis. She is a 3 yr old American Staffordshire Terrier. Artemis came to Pet Helpers from a neighboring county shelter. After arriving we discovered Artemis was positive for Heartworms and she has been treated effectively for that. However during the long crating process Artemis did gain a little more weight than she should have so she needs a diet and exercise partner to help her lose some of these unwanted pounds. Artemis loves going for rides and walks even if they are short walks right now while she increases her stamina. She loves attention and belly rubs. She enjoys laying by your side or lounging in a soft pet bed. She very good around older children 11yrs old and over. Artemis wants to be the queen of her castle and is very selective about other dogs so an only dog home would be best. In addition to her heartworm treatment Artemis has also been fixed and is UTD on vaccinations and flea/worm meds. She is crate trained, leash/harness trained and is house trained.
 If interested in adopting Artemis please email and request an adoption application. Her adoption fee is $150 and is being fostered in the Bridgeport WV area.

Pet Helpers is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit foster based volunteer rescue located in Fairmont, WV.  We do adopt out of state to approved applicants, if you are willing to drive to WV to pick up your pet.  We do not fly or use transport companies.  Our adoption fee is $150.00 for mixed breed puppies and adult dogs, $225.00 for full blooded puppies and adult dogs and $50.00 for cats and kittens.  Regardless if the animal is a mixed breed or full blooded they are spayed/neutered prior to adoption IF they are old enough.  If they are too young at the time of adoption, then it is your financial responsibility to spay/neuter the pet by the age of 6 months and you must provide proof for our files that it has been done.  All of our pets are checked by a vet, given the shots appropriate for their age and any other treatment deemed necessary by the vet.  All of our pets are adopted as indoor pets and are not be outdoors tied to a box 24/7.  The pet you are adopting has been living in a home with a foster family.  You are expected to take possession of the pet you are applying for within a few days of application approval.  This will enable us to accept another pet into that home.  Because we are a rescue, and believe that spaying and neutering is crucial in stopping the reproduction of unwanted puppies/kittens and massive amounts of animals dying daily in shelters across the country, we expect any animal already in your home to be spayed/neutered. If for any reason you are unable to keep the pet you have adopted you are required to return them to Pet Helpers, Inc.  They are not to be sold or given away.

About Pet Helpers, Inc

About Our Rescue Group...

We were formed in September of 2008. We provide much needed support to pet owners, animal caregivers and other rescues. We also work to educate pet owners on the importance of spaying and neutering their pets. We place homeless animals from within our organization as well as other Rescue Organizations.

We do not have a shelter or facility. All of our pets are kept in foster homes until adopted. We feel that this better prepares the pet to live with the family who adopts them. We have placed over 1,000 pets with adoptive families and continuously look for new foster homes so that we can give more pets a chance at a new life.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We do not have a facility. All of our animals are in Foster care and live with families until they are adopted. We can arrange a visit with any of our pets in foster when someone calls or emails us.

You can view our adoptable pets on our website: and we also have a link on the Home Page to our Facebook page.

Our Adoption Process...

Email for an application. We require a vet reference and 2 personal references. Once the application is approved, we will arrange for the family to meet the pet and decide if they want to finalize the adoption. Our adoption fee is $150 regardless of age/breed. Our contract requires that the pet be kept as an indoor pet and part of the family. If the pet is old enough, it will be spayed/neutered prior to adoption. Young puppies are required to be spayed/neutered by the age of 6 months, which is not included in the adoption fee. You are required to send a spay/neuter certificate to Pet Helpers. If you can no longer provide a home for the pet, you are required to return the pet to Pet Helpers, Inc.
