If you love hounds, you’ll love CHESTER. This 1-year-old black and tan coonhound mix loves to run and sniff around the exercise areas here at Save the Strays. But, like most hounds, he’s quite happy lounging indoors, as well. Also like most hounds, he’s food-driven. Show him a treat and he’ll try his best to do what you want, once he understands what that is. He learned to sit in 5 minutes using treats. That’s also how we trained him to kennel up in his crate when he comes inside. He’s pretty smart, so if you get a bag of treats and devote an afternoon, you can probably teach him most of the basic commands. Chester is large (58 lbs.) and fairly active, so he needs room to run. A fenced yard would be best, but he can be taught better leash manners if you want to walk him. Because of his size and energy level, we think he would be best with adults only or a family with older, bigger children so he doesn’t knock them down when he’s playing. He’s also best as an only dog or with other large females.  Apply for Chester online at www.savethestrays.org or email info@savethestrays.org for our application. Adoption fee $225.



About Save the Strays Animal Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Save the Strays Animal Rescue is an all-volunteer 501c3 public charity and no-kill humane organization founded in 2003. Our mission is to rescue and rehome unwanted and abandoned dogs and provide lifelong care for any that are not adopted.

All of our dogs receive age-appropriate vaccinations. Dogs six months and older are spayed or neutered and tested for heartworms before adoption. Some of the dogs we rescue and make available for adoption are older, have suffered injuries or have treatable medical conditions. These have included blind dogs, deaf dogs, dogs with amputations, congenital deformities, and limited mobility, and dogs with heart conditions, diabetes and other chronic disorders. We disclose all known health conditions to potential adopters.

Because we do not euthanize rescued dogs to make room for others, some of these dogs may be with us for a number of years or even for life. Your donations help us pay for the care they need to maintain a good quality of life.

Donate to Our Rescue Group...

All donations are fully tax-deductible and are used solely to care for animals' needs.

Our Adoption Process...

We are a home and foster care-based rescue, with no shelter facility or employees. Because our rescue dogs live in private homes, we ask those interested in adopting from us to complete our application as the first step in our process and only set up an appointment to meet the dog(s) in which they are interested after they are approved to adopt. Please email info@savethestrays.org to request an application.
