Rusty is a purebred Ridgeback. He is pretty thin right now weighing about 64 lbs - but he will fill out to 75 or 80 lbs. He is NOT cat friendly and can climb fences. Rusty has been neutered, is heart worm negative and he's been dewormed and vaccinated. He is a little rough around the edges, but he uses a leash well, will sit and is overall a good boy!
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.
