Our rescue will be at the Palo Alto Pet Food Express Saturday, April 15th from 10am-4pm. All of our dogs are spayed/neutered, shots current (DHPP, Bordetella and Rabies where applicable), dewormed, flea and tick treated and microchipped.
* If you are interested in a dog, please first read the biography on the dog (keep scrolling down for the bio!) and then go to our website, www.dpsrescue.com for an application. * We do not have a facility. All dogs live in foster homes. Arrangements to meet dogs occur after an approved application has been accepted. * We do not ship our dogs for any reason. * Our adoption fee is $400 for each dog/puppy. * If it is on a weekend of our adoptions, follow us on @DPSRescue on Twitter to get real time updates on our adoptions. We will also post at the end of the evening the names of those dogs who have been adopted: www.facebook.com/DPSRescue
This dog will be at Palo Alto Pet Food Express on Saturday, April 22nd from 11-4pm and Sunday, April 23rd from 12-4pm or until adopted. However, we do meet with those who submit an application and are approved just prior to the event (by invitation only) and they are given the first opportunity to adopt. If you are interested in one of our dogs, we recommend filling out an application prior to the event to be considered. Applications submitted within 24 hours of the event may not necessarily be reviewed.
Skippy is a 10 month old Rat Terrier mix who came into our rescue from the shelter and is three legged. His leg was broken upon entry at the shelter and it was decided that amputation was the best course of action. Skippy acts as if he has never had a fourth leg ever. He runs, plays, jumps and hops with the best of them. He gets along with all the humans that he has met and loved and he gets along with all the canines he has met too. He lives with dogs now and he has nothing but friends!
Skippy has a fabulous personality. He is an ideal dog for just about any type of home. From someone who has never had a dog and needs an easier dog with a great temperament to the person who has had dogs all their lives and doesn't need a dog with a lot of challenges. Skippy is an option to go to work with his new mom or dad. He's a great option for living in an apartment or condo setting. He's an option to go to doggy day care or the dog park. He just is so versatile and will be a great match for city living or country life.
Skippy is an option to live with a cat. He currently lives with cats. He doesn't care about them. Of course they don't care about him either so that helps!
Skippy could be an option for kids of many ages. We would consider younger kids if there has been experience with dogs by parents in the home. He is also an option for a home with cats!
**Not all of our dogs go to each adoption event. We want to make sure if you are interested in a dog that we have the dog at adoptions but that can only happen if you fill out an application ahead of time and are pre-approved. (Generally this must happen prior to the weekend)
**If you are wanting to submit an application within 24 hours of an event, please print off the application and bring with you as well as submitting it. You may still submit it and if time and volunteers permit, we will contact you. Most applications submitted the weekend of adoptions are not responded to until after the adoption weekend.
