STELLA's Story...
An adoption application on STELLA can be found at the following link: http://wp.me/P73YMd-1h
Please email the completed application to weatherley.woofriver@gmail.com
Please submit an application AND do NOT also contact the shelter. You will be contacting both the adoption coordinator and the marketing director, who do not see each other's emails. This causes confusion.

STELLA is a pint sized cuddle bug brimming over with adoration for the person who cares for her. If a loyal lifelong companion is what you are searching for...STELLA is your girl! Most of the time, she likes to be wherever her person or people are. However, she also loves to run all through the yard with her doggie friends! She shares her foster home with 2 large dogs but has small dog buddies who come to visit as well. STELLA is a fantastic lap dog, but has enough stamina for a more active home as well. She uses the doggie door in her foster home like a pro and is a perfect passenger in the car! She also walks wonderfully on a leash so would be great for both city or suburban life. STELLA trots in her crate without hesitation when her foster mom leaves the house. She will protest for a few minutes before quieting down, so an apartment isn't the best fit for her if you have neighbors who won't appreciate a little barking while she is learning her new routine. STELLA never runs out of affection to give and is certain to melt your heart with her soulful eyes. She is 4 years old, 10 lbs, and her tongue is NOT always out of her mouth...we just think she's adorable when when it is. STELLA will, without a doubt, be her adopter's sidekick and best friend for life!

STELLA is spayed, microchipped, and up to date on all vaccinations.
Her $450 adoption fee includes her interstate health certificate and cost transport to New England once she is adopted.

Please email the completed application to weatherley.woofriver@gmail.com. It typically takes us around 5 BUSINESS DAYS to process an application. We will reach out to you as soon as your application is processed.

All of our dogs start their journey in Memphis, Tennessee where they remain in loving foster families until they are adopted. Once adopted, they travel via one of our transport partners to their new forever homes. We use Alpha Dog Pet Transport for our New England, Nashville, and Knoxville adoptions (https://alphadogtransport.com) and The Road Home Pet Transport for our Midwest adopters (https://www.facebook.com/roadhomepettransport).

Breed selection is done in conjunction with two local vets and is not to be considered a guarantee but rather a well-educated decision from well qualified staff.

Due to the extremely high volume of inquiries we receive, we ask that you request, complete, and submit an application before asking additional questions. We try very hard to include all pertinent information in our bios. We are excited to help you find your new family member. However, Woof River is 100% volunteer operated. We want to spend our time saving dogs and assisting those adopters who have taken the time to complete an application. Thank you for understanding.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

STELLA, a Plainfield Maltese/Shih Tzu dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Maltese/Shih Tzu for sale in Plainfield, or seeking a Maltese/Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Plainfield.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Plainfield already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Plainfield breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Maltese/Shih Tzu breeders who help with Maltese/Shih Tzu rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Plainfield paves the way for another one to be saved.
