'Us! Us! Us!'

Wilbur and Ilene want you to pick them. Or even just pet them. Or even just glance their way! They have lived together since Ilene was a baby and are extremely bonded.

Wilbur is a senior guy who has spent his days taking care of Ilene. Although he's become laid back in his old age, he has been known to jump a fence in search of the cows across the road. Wilbur loves to go for long walks and play ball. He loves belly rubs and scratches and finding a home with a family who would spend time petting him would really make his life complete.

 
Ilene is a genuinely happy dog who is always jumping up and wagging her tail. It's amazing, in fact, that she's so darling, because Ilene runs around with 3 legs just like she did when she had 4 legs. This has not slowed her down at all. Some dogs would be traumatized by that! But Ilene is just bouncing around, hoping Wilbur and she will become somebody's new family members. Ilene knows her name, and she knows how to 'sit' and 'lay down'. She comes when called and just loves to play in the water. Ilene definitely loves soft toys and treats.

This precious pair have been at our facility for many years patiently waiting for the perfect home to come along. They are both such lovers and would make a family complete.

About Satchel's Last Resort

About Our Shelter...

At Satchel's Last Resort, we provide lifelong shelter to dogs deemed unadoptable, nurture and train borderline dogs, and offer temporary shelter to adoptable dogs whose owners can no longer care for them. We believe all dogs are created equal and deserve to live the life of a beloved pet.

Each dog that comes to Satchel’s has its own unique and personal history. We get to know each dog individually – his favorite toy, his favorite game, his favorite foods. The residents (dogs forever with Satchel's) and guests (adoptable dogs at Satchel's for a temporary stay) live in an airy shelter with spacious kennels, go for three romps or walks per day, and even take the occasional car ride to let their fur flap in the wind. Most important to us -- we keep our dogs safe from other residents and from humans who may want to harm them.

Trainers work with the dogs a few times a week to teach them that they can trust humans and other animals. We actively seek forever homes tailored to the needs of our adoptable dogs so that they can live the rest of their lives among a family of their own.

At Satchel’s Last Resort, we believe that by harnessing the unconditional love that the dogs in our sanctuary put forth everyday, the world becomes a brighter place for animals and people. Each and everyday we try to give a little of their love back – back to the dogs and back to our community.

Our Adoption Process...

All of our rescue dogs are spayed/neutered, up to to date on their vaccinations and micro chipped. The adoption fee is $95 for dogs and $125 for puppies. We ask that all members of the household come and meet the dog(s) you are interested in. Then if you are interested in adopting, you will fill out an *application. Once approved we will make arrangement for the adoption.
