If ever a dog has paid her dues due to neglect and suffering, it is Freedom! We named her last year when she was still living on the end of a heavy chain. We promised her, through the fence and past the garbage that surrounded her, that one day she would be free from the chain. Freedom had been on our radar ever since she was a pup (nearly 4 years ago), and she and her little brother were placed on the end of chains. Her brother passed away due to parvo and she survived the disease. We used to think her brother was the lucky one as she was left alone for many years, a body full of ticks and skin a bones. She would walk back and forth on the chain, too afraid to make eye contact. Today Freedom is in our care. She was initially so timid, so unsure of what our kind hands might do to her. But over time, she has learned to play and love. She still has moments of fear, and we need to make sure she goes to a home who will still work with her and not put her in situations that she becomes fearful. She is crate trained and is starting to understand the whole "potty outside" deal. She seems to enjoy other dogs but we have only introduced her to a few and she has played well. Note: the dogs Freedom have met have been very submissive and we feel she needs a playmate that is not alpha. Freedom is beautiful....her eyes are big and brown and she does this little happy dance when she sees her foster people. She is affectionately called "Smush Smush" because of her cute, smoochable smushy face. If you are interested in providing a loving and calm home for this beautiful and deserving gal ( $200 donation), please fill out an application. Applications are required and once received, you will be contacted within 48 hours. Thank you! http://www.povertyspets.org/adoption-form

Our Adoption Process...

Poverty's Pets has a Foster-to-Adopt program, where all of our potential adopters foster their fur-kids first, to make sure they can commit to being lifetime parents. When the adoption has been finalized, we ask them to sign an adoption contract and pay a $200.00 adoption fee.
