Please meet sweethearts Georgie and Gracie.  These babies are the beloved pets of a local senior couple, who, due to health issues, must move into assisted living and unfortunately cannot take their beloved pets with them.  These lovely, caring people have been a wonderful Mom and Dad to Georgie and Gracie for all of their lives, and they want to do right by their babies now.  Toward that end, they have reached out to us – and, yes, all of you in our community, for help.  We all know too well…there, but for the grace of God, … this could happen to any one of us… and, so, let’s work together to find a wonderful forever home for these two fur-babies…

Georgie and Gracie MUST remain together as they move forward into this next stage of their life.  They are 7 years of age, currently weighing in at about 18 lbs.  Both of these babies are as sweet and lovable as can be.  They know how to use a doggie door, and they also get along well with the family cat.  (In the pic, Georgie is on the left in the photo with the two of them in their Dad's lap, and Gracie is on the right.) 

In terms of medical, they have received wonderful care throughout their lives.  They are spayed/neutered and are up-to-date on all their shots, as well as flea and tick preventative and HW preventative.  Gracie is diabetic, however, and her mother gives her insulin shots every day with no problems at all.  Gracie also gets her sugar levels monitored routinely at our local vet office; and we have been told by our vet that Gracie’s recent checkup went very well, with excellent results.  While Gracie will need insulin injections every day (along with routine sugar level monitoring), she is otherwise in great health, and so is Georgie. 

These two are well-adjusted little dogs.  But their mom tells us that Gracie does get a little scared with thunder storms and strong winds, and will go outside during them only if her person puts her on a leash and accompanies her outside.  Otherwise, she will use pee pads.  Georgie is not afraid of thunder like his sister; so, he is not at all bothered by storms.

And, so, that is what we know about these two sweet little dogs.  For any of us who are devoted pet owners, we would not want to imagine what this lovely couple is having to endure in giving up their beloved pets.  We can all feel compassion in this situation – but it is also very, very important that anyone considering adopting this wonderful pair of sweet, loving souls knows that they deserve the very best, not only for themselves, but also for their wonderful parents who want only the very best for them.  If you are interested in wanting to welcome these babies into your heart and home, please, you must be SURE that this commitment is for life.

If you are interested in adopting BOTH Georgie and Gracie, go to  Register and then log back on with username and password to complete the Safe at Last online adoption application.  Please be sure to fill out the application completely. Upon reviewing your application, we will contact you by email.  So, please be on the lookout for an email from seeking to set up a time to speak with you to commence the review process.  If we do not have a completed Safe at Last application from you in our system, we cannot consider you.  NO exceptions.

Thank you for considering welcoming these sweet babies into your heart and home and helping their parents through a most difficult, heartbreaking time.

About Safe At Last Animal Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Safe At Last Animal Rescue is an all-volunteer not-for-profit group dedicated to saving the lives of shelter animals. Every day, staggering numbers of wonderful animals are discarded in shelters across the country. Irresponsible pet ownership -- be it, the failure to spay/neuter or follow through on one's commitment -- results in a tragic loss of life. We, at Safe At Last, feel these animals need a voice.

It is Safe At Last's mission to help ease the suffering, as well as stop it at its source. We do this by taking animals into our organization from shelters across the country, fostering them in our homes, providing them proper veterinary care, and then matching them with wonderful forever homes.

Further, to help assist with the financial plight in many of the shelters, we send the bulk of our adoptions fees back to the shelters. We also do fundraisers to raise much needed monies for the shelters, many of which are barely able to keep their doors open. These funds assist the shelters in buying the basics (food & medicines) for the continuing influx of animals. These monies also allow the shelters to provide more advanced medical care (e.g., heartworm treatment, special surgeries), thus increasing the likelihood that these animals will be able to get to rescue.

Safe At Last is also working directly with shelters to assist in facilitating adoptions directly from those facilities. This not only gets more animals out of the shelters and into forever homes, but also provides much-needed financial support.

Finally, Safe At Last is dedicated to education (both online and event-related). Educational efforts are multi-dimensional. We educate relative to stopping the overpopulation problem at its source, by emphasizing the need to spay and neuter. We also educate to increase awareness regarding animals already in need, stressing adoption via rescue rather than pet shops or breeders. Finally, we educate regarding responsible pet ownership and general "pet-related" matters.

At Safe at Last, we remain committed to saving shelter pets, one life at a time.

Our Adoption Process...

The adoption process will begin with an extensive adoption application, accessible on our website. In addition to a series of questions (e.g., to ascertain the adopter's likes/dislikes, lifestyle, and general suitability), the application will require, among other things, a veterinary reference and two personal (non-family member) references. In lieu of a veterinary references, we will require 3 personal references. We will also require submission of digital photos of home and yard, as well as a home visit. Approved adopters will be required to take their pup or dog to the vet within 7 days of adoption. Each animal adopted from Safe At Last will go home with a medical booklet, complete with all details of vetting done prior to adoption, with explicit instructions as to the follow up required. All animals will be UTD with all age appropriate shots prior to adoption, and barring any health reasons that would preclude it, they will be placed on topical protection for fleas/ticks, and based on age, also started on heartworm preventative (or provided with the first dose). Any animals older than 4 months will be spayed/neutered before adoptions. For animals under 4 months old, the adoption contract will require spay/neuter by the time the animal is 6 months of age. We will require proof of same and will assign one of our members to have the task of following up on proof of spay and neuter. Under the contract, the adoptive family will not "own" the animal until we have received proof of spay and neuter. Failure to have the surgery performed will allow us, under the contract, to reclaim the pet.
