Facts about Lassie

  • Breed: Collie Mix
  • Color: Tan/Yellow/Fawn - With White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Female
Lassie is a 3-year-old collie mix. She is extremely friendly and affectionate and gets along well with other dogs. Lassie has had a tough life, but you can't tell from her sweet attitude! She has been diagnosed with Eosinophilic Myositis, which is what caused her severe facial muscle atrophy, prolapsed 3rd eyelid and sunken eyes. Had this been treated in her former home, she would have made a full recovery. Unfortunately, due to neglect, the muscle atrophy is permanent. When Lassie came to us, her foster pulled over 70 ticks off of this poor girl. Lassie also has patches on her body and the inside of her hears presumably from fly strike. She has numerous small scars around her ankles; the vet concluded that she had been chained up and the chain cut into her legs.

Although she had a tough start at life, she has a good appetite and her foster says she seems happy and well-adjusted! Please consider giving this girl the life she deserves! She also came into our fosters with one of her puppies, Dublin.

About Purple Power Animal Welfare Society

About Our Shelter...

Our mission is to help homeless pets! There was a huge need in the Manhattan community for another rescue effort. We are a caring network of foster homes who provide TLC and time for that pet to find their 'furever' home. We are all volunteers, dedicated to our mission. We believe that euthanasia of perfectly adoptable pets is unacceptable. The sterilization of pets is critical in reducing the number of unwanted pets, as well as closing down bad breeders everywhere.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our pets are showcased every Saturday at Petco/PetSmart in Manhattan, KS. Our hours are non to 3 PM. Our cats are present for adoption events Saturday and Sunday at these locations. We also do special events in the Manhattan community with our dogs as opportunity presents itself.

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption process is easy; we require an application in which we contact references and vets. Once approved the adopter signs an adoption contract that specifies that the pet will come back to us if they can not keep the pet int he future. We consider all of our adoptions as 'trial' adoptions; if the pet is not a good fit for the family, the pet comes back to us, no problem. Our adoptions fees for adult dogs are $160. For puppies the fee is $180 with a $80 deposit returned when the pet is spayed/neutered. Adoption fees for cats is $75.
