Leif is a special needs beagle boy. Leif has been diagnosed with a serious medical condition called mega esophagus. He requires special medication twice a day before feedings, his food needs to be elevated while he eats and his food need to be liquified as well.  So far this has seemed to mange his symptoms but there is a possibility of future medical needs and expenses in his future. His adopter needs to be aware that his condition is lifelong and needs to prepared to provide the necessary vet care he will need for the rest of his life.

Leif came to us as an unclaimed stray and significantly underweight. He loves food, though, so his foster family is  He is a shy sweet boy that is learning what it is to be in a home and be loved. He loves warm blankets and soft laps.  He will roll over for a good belly rub.  As with all beagles, he needs to be supervised while outside because he will try to escape the yard if left  alone.  He is doing great with his foster brothers and sisters in his home. He loves kids and lights up when they walk into the room.  

Leif is current on vaccinations, neutered, and microchipped. He is current on heartworm preventative and flea preventative.

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).

** Local adoptions preferred (within Greater New Orleans area and surrounding parishes). We do not ship animals, as a part of our adoption process is for the potential adopter(s) to meet the dog to assess if he/she is a match for the family.

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.
