Benchley's Story...
Benchley was rescued from the streets 5 years ago by a kind woman who sadly, is very ill and is in a stage 4 illness and could not care for her or her canine siblings anymore. The woman's husband was going to bring her to be “put down” at a time she was needed most..we couldn’t let that happen to such a loyal and loving dog- or to her mom who was doubly heartbroken.

Benchley is a real angel who, in her younger years once chased a pizza delivery guy UP A TREE- turns out, she just wanted his pizza and to give him a kiss of gratitude! It's kind of her claim to fame and we think she likes when we tell this story! She lets all animals dominate her and is very passive, sweet and easygoing. She has learned over the past few years while her moms been sick and in treatment, to ask for very little and accept that. She just hangs around, not bothering anyone. Her favorite act of affection is to fall asleep with her head on your lap!

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Boca Raton already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Boca Raton breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
