*****IMPORTANT: TootsiePop is NOT AVAILABLE for adoption at this time, and will NOT be present at HFE events at this time. She is with a temporary foster, but will need a calm, quiet long-term foster home to see her through heartworm treatment. Thank you!*****

This sweet emaciated girl was found living in an abandoned garage. She was laying on an old mattress with debris scattered all around her. Our volunteers went to try and help get her out of the cold and could clearly see how emaciated she looked. Once she was taken to a safe, warm foster home, she enjoyed a good meal, but then proceeded to vomit up rocks and pieces of tin foil, the garbage she had been surviving on. TootsiePop acts like a young puppy at her foster house. She relaxed quickly and in the first week has shown great progress. She's eating, playing with toys, and learning her basic manners quickly. She loves getting pet and being a lap dog. And she is eager to give kisses and play. TootsiePop has not been tested with dogs or cats yet.

Sadly we learned that TootsiePop is heartworm positive, and will have to go through treatment once she gains some weight. The vet estimates her age at about 3 years old, and she has had puppies in the past. TootsiePop will have to be kept calm while she undergoes the long, difficult treatment for heart worm. She will not be available for adoption for several months.

Donations are welcome to help pay for her vet appointments and costly treatment.

Our Adoption Process...

Home Fur-Ever requires all potential adopters to complete an application process. The application is to be completed in person at one of our adoption events, followed by a face-to-face interview with our founder and director. We do home inspections to insure that the home is the right fit for the dog. Please note we really can't drive more than an hour for a home inspection. At this time, we can not accommodate out of state adoptions.
Adoption fees range from $225-$350. Adoption fees help to cover the costs of vet care that each dog receives while in our care.
We require that all puppies are spayed or neutered at six months of age, and will follow up with adopters to verify that the procedure has been competed. Basic training classes are also required for all dogs and puppies.
All bully breed dogs require homes with fully fenced yards to ensure their safety and well-being.

- We ask for your patience as we review your application. Home Fur-ever receives numerous applications and cannot respond to every one individually.

- Approved applicants are based on best fit, not first submitted. HOME FUR-EVER RESERVES THE RIGHT TO REFUSE ANY APPLICANT, so please understand that it is within our discretion to make those decisions on behalf of our animals.

- OUR ADOPTION EVENTS ARE VERY BUSY so please keep that in mind if you intend to come. You should expect to spend some time there if you are sincerely interested in one of our animals. We have limited manpower and many applicants to screen.

-Due to space limitations, WE CANNOT GUARANTEE THAT THE RESCUE YOU ARE INTERESTED IN WILL BE AT THE ADOPTION EVENT (we are oftentimes saving up to 100 animals at a time!) We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause.

- We ask that you DO NOT contact Petco about our animals. They are kind enough to provide space for our adoption events, but are not involved with our rescue work.

- If a rescue is "PENDING" it is currently in the process of being adopted, but may be available in the future if it is not finalized.

- Keep in mind that we depend 100% on volunteers, most of whom have full-time jobs and families and so we ask for your understanding as we do the best we can in the endless effort to find homes for these deserving animals!
