Facts about Delilah

  • Age: Unknown
  • Size: Unknown
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 11833148

Meet Delilah. This sweet girl was rescued by our SC team after a vigilant neighbor called concerned for her welfare. Delilah was living in a small, filthy pen with her daughter, Phoebe, and they had no protection from the heat/sun or elements. She was suffering from dry eye, and was losing her coat due to scratching from fleas. It was a miserable existence. Thankfully, our volunteer was able to convince her owner that she needed vet care immediately and should be released to our custody. Delilah is now free and living in the comfort of her foster home, learning what love and family is all about. 

Delilah is a social, friendly dog, that has lived with other dogs her whole life. She's very warm and friendly to people too, and adores kids. Her foster mom, Gail, walks her to the park everyday and the kids will come out to pet and play with her. Delilah loves the attention, and when the kids are not there, she's constantly looking for them. She's also great with Gail's 6 year old granddaughter, and they romp and play together when she visits.

Delilah's foster mom, Gail, describes her as "perfect" She says Delilah loves her daily walks and is great on leash. She is housetrained and crate trained too. She goes into her crate at the foot of Gail's bed every night with no issues and quietly sleeps through the night. She's probably so happy to enjoy the comfort of indoors, feeling safe and loved for the first time. She's also quite the snuggler, so if you are looking for the ultimate lap dog, Delilah is your girl.

You can also help save dogs like this by becoming a foster, providing a rescue dog with a temporary home and giving them the love and care they need until they are permanently adopted. Every person who fosters is directly responsible for saving the life of a dog, because we can only save as many dogs as we have foster families available to welcome them into their homes. If you think you might be interested in becoming a foster and want to learn more, please go to http://foster.worthydog.org and fill out an application.

Worthy Dog Rescue is an all-volunteer, foster-based rescue that primarily adopts to families in the DC metro area.

About Worthy Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Worthy Dog Rescue is an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to helping dogs in distress, especially those living on chains, in pens, or in neglectful and abusive situations. Our mission is to provide a better life for dogs, while working to address the root problems of animal overpopulation and improve animal welfare. We do this through community outreach and by supporting and educating dog owners in underserved communities, by sponsoring spay and neuter programs, and by rescuing and rehabilitating dogs in need.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Worthy Dog Rescue believes that public adoption events are unnecessarily stressful for the dogs and the foster families who care for them, and that our structured, personalized adoption process leads to a more consistently positive outcome for both the dog and the adopter.
