"Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness." Meet Hope. With help from our southern partners we are able to give this beautiful girl an end to her dark days. Hope appears to be a Lab/Black Mouth Cur mix approximately 2 years old. She was taken to a shelter after being hit by a car. Her eye was severely injured and she wasn't using her back leg, so they did x-rays which revealed a fractured pelvis. Twelve days later she had surgery where they plated her pelvis and enucleated her eye. During that time she tested positive for Heart Worms and is currently receiving treatment for it. Her fur is growing back in and she is recuperating nicely in a loving foster home.
 
Hope is a quiet, calm girl who seems to settle in quickly. She is crate trained but she can be trusted to have free range in her foster's home. She is house and leash trained and rides well in the car. She is still healing, but we think it's safe to say that she seems more of a couch potato. She loves to get petted and likes to give and receive lots of love. She is mostly unengaged with other dogs but she is tolerant, submissive and will mingle. She has not had the chance to meet any cats or children. Because of her injuries we feel she would do best in a quiet home without young children. She has climbed over a 4-foot fence twice, so she can never be left unattended if her new home has a fenced-in yard. She respects commands and corrections, and would do well and catch on quickly if she attended obedience training.
 
If you would like to be part of Hope's bright future, please fill out an application. She will quickly show you...there's always HOPE!
 
Hope is expected to be able to travel and ready for her new home in late August.

Medical Note: This dog has been treated for heartworm disease with melarsomine injections.  Once treatment is completed and the dog tests negative for microfilaria, the dog will be cleared to resume normal activity and able to be adopted. Untreated heartworm disease can cause lasting damage to the heart, lungs and arteries, and can affect the dog’s health and quality of life even after the parasites are gone, possibly presenting as medical complications and/or new conditions in the future. This dog showed no symptoms of heartworm disease before or during treatment. A good resource for more information on heartworm disease is: https://www.heartwormsociety.org/pet-owner-resources/heartworm-basics . Please check with your vet if you should have any questions or concerns about this condition, and discuss any concerns you may have with your SOS Adoption Counselor. 

Adoption Fee: $425 
To apply for this dog, fill out an adoption application on our website:  www.sosarl.org/aa/

**Additional info you should know -  For most of our dogs, we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix.  We get to know each of our dogs as an individual and do our best to describe and place them based on personality not breed label.   Some dogs may not yet be in New England, nor ready for immediate adoption.  There may be additional vetting, quarantine, waiting periods and/or fees depending upon your state of residence. If you have questions or concerns on any of this, you can discuss this with your Adoption Counselor.

Our Adoption Process...

Step 1: Find Fido

Review our online dog bios, email us if you have any questions. At SOS, we want to make the RIGHT right match, and that means helping you and Fido start a relationship – sometimes from a long distance.

Take your time, explore your options, consider your home and what kind of companion will fit in your lifestyle.

Step 2: Complete Our Application http://sosarl.org/aa/

Once you think you have found the right dog for you, please complete our online application.

At SOS, we don’t just want to make a match, we want to make the right match. To do this, we need your help; we know our dogs, but we don’t know you yet – our application helps us get to know you!

Step 3: Have a Talk

We will review the application and if it appears to be a good match for the selected dog, we will arrange for a time to talk with you over the phone.

Step 4: Meet Your Match

If, after the phone interview, the match seems to be a good one, we will be happy to arrange a meet-n-greet with you and the dog, if the dog is local. Meet-n-greets will be scheduled in the order they are requested.

Step 5: Application Screening

Once everyone has met (if the dog is local), and the match seems to be a good one, a designated SOS volunteer will check your landlord, vet, and personal references, as relevant. We may also require a home visit or adopter meeting.

Step 6: Finalize The Adoption

If the match is a good one, you will be informed via email of the adoption decision, and provided with instructions for how to pay the adoption donation and complete our adoption contract/addendum(s).

Step 7: Pick Up Your New Best Friend!

Once the adoption is finalized, congratulations! We will contact you to make arrangements to pick up your new family member!
**Please note that additional vetting,quarantine and/or waiting periods may be required depending upon your state of residence.

All of our dogs are age appropriately vaccinated prior to adoption. All of our dogs have been spayed/neutered and tested/treated for common canine disease.
