"I wish I may, I wish I might, have the wish, I wish tonight!" Kurt is closing his eyes and wishing with all his might for a home for the holidays!

Kurt is a 6-7 month old heeler/border collie/shadow puppy blend. He weighs in at about 40lbs, but could stand to lose a few, as he shared a kennel at the shelter with another dog, and we're pretty sure he was partaking of a bit more than his food allowance. Kurt has a wonderful personality and disposition. He gets along really well with kids, dogs, cats, and goats (yes, goats)! Kurt is the perfect balance of energy and activity level, as he will play when engaged, but is also happy to just be by your side and lie by your feet. He soaks up human affection and returns it in kind. Kurt is kennel trained, and his foster parents are polishing his potty-training skills. Kurt knows the command "sit" and because he is very treat-motivated and has a penchant for learning new things (probably due to his herding breed DNA), he will be a fun pooch to train.

Kurt is current on vaccinations, neutered, microchipped and has tested negative for heartworms. Current on flea preventative and heartworm preventative.

If you are interested in havng this cute, spotty-toed pooch in your life, please fill out a   Dog Adoption Application

*Local adoptions (New Orleans and surrounding parishes) preferred. We do NOT ship animals

*Before applying for a puppy under 6 months old, please note that we are looking for homes where someone is home frequently, or for those applicants who work 8 hr work days, we ask that you have made arrangements for someone to come home at least once during the day to allow the dog to go out for a potty break.

Puppies go through multiple teething stages during their first year.  Providing your puppy with appropriate toys specially designed for teething puppies can prevent damage to belongings, but more importantly, prevent your dog from choking or suffering a dangerous intestinal obstruction. During the earlier stages, crate him or her when you can't directly supervise him.

Our adoptions include a foster period of 4-6 weeks so that you can be sure that this pet is a good fit without any pressure, and we are available to answer any behavior or training questions during that time (and beyond, if you wish).

About Pet Adoption Services, Inc

About Our Rescue Group...

Pet Adoption Services, Inc. is a non-profit all breed cat and dog rescue organization in New Orleans. Supported by over 20 volunteer members, Pet Adoption Services was founded in 1996, although some of our members have been involved in rescue for over 20 years. Our mission is to secure loving permanent homes for homeless, abandoned or abused cats and dogs of all breeds. While awaiting adoption, our animals live in the homes of one of our foster parents. During this time the animals receive any necessary veterinary care, including but not limited to, vaccinations, spaying or neutering and heartworm treatment. Our experienced foster parents continually assess each pet's personality and temperament allowing us to place adoptable cats and dogs in just the right permanent home. Pet Adoption Services participates in adoption days during which time, potential adopters get the opportunity to meet and spend time with the animals in a "real life" situation.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Because each of our rescues lives in the home of one of our fosterparents, arrangements will be made for the adopter to meet the pet in which they are interested. Also, PAS holds a monthly adoption day at the Petsmart on Veterans Blvd in Metairie.

Our Adoption Process...

The average adoption fee for dogs is $150, though some adoption fees may be occasionally lower or a bit higher. All animals offered for adoption are spayed or neutered, heartworm negative or undergoing treatment, up to date on vaccinations, treated for intestinal parasites, and microchipped. In addition to completing an adoption contract, potential adopters should be prepared to agree to a veterinarian reference check and home visit. A valid drivers license or state I.D. card is required. This simple yet thorough screening process allows us to place the right animal in your committed, loving home.
