I am about 8 weeks old and weigh about 8-9 pounds (march 19 2017) I am really sweet and playful. Mom is Feist and dad clearly a cattle dog Although I am currently in Mississippi at Hope Sanctuary, transportation to the New England area is provided by Animal Rescue Front and is included in the adoption fee. If you are interested in taking me into your forever home, please fill out the adoption form here: http://animalrescuefront.org/forms/
ARF started in 2005 in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and because of the shocking treatment we saw many animals in the Deep South endure, and the extremely high kill rates in their shelter systems we have stayed committed to helping animals with a focus in the state of Mississippi. Many of these wonderful animals would be killed in a shelter or abandoned outside if not for our continued efforts.
Our Adoption Process...
Our adoption fees are affected by the state you live in. If you are a Massachusetts resident we are required by the Dept. of Agriculture to quarantine your adopted animal for a minimum of 48hrs. The cost for this quarantine is $120.00 per animal. Our fees are as follow:
Adult dogs 13 months to 5 years - MA resident $450, all others $425.00. Adult dogs +5 years of age - MA resident $350, all others $325.00 Puppies 12 months and younger - MA resident $575, all others $500.00.
If pre-adoption neutering is not medically advised prior to adoption, a refund of $60 will be given to the adopter when proof of neuter is presented to us. This is a strict requirement of our organization and the MA Department of Agriculture/Animal Welfare and no exceptions are allowed without written proof from a licensed veterinarian. Our adoption donation covers the transport to New England and exceptional vetting from our local veterinary teams down south, microchipping and local quarantining in MA. As well we reimburse our southern rescues so they can continue their life saving mission. We do require you to fill out an application, adoption contract (once approved) and provide a vet reference, and a home inspection may be requested. Our adoption application can be found here: http://animalrescuefront.org/forms/
Thanks for rescuing!
Please note - we will not adopt a puppy to anyone who is not willing and committed to ensuring their new family member never reproduce. Spaying and neutering your pet contributes to efforts to reduce unwanted and homeless animals in the United States and your animal will be healthier. Our adoption fees are nonrefundable after 21 days. If for whatever reason your adoption is not suitable to you or your adoptee we require the animal be surrendered to us.
