Gretchen's Story...
Update 1/11/11: Give a warm welcome to Gretchen.

Gretchen is a 2-3 year old, 50 lb female. She looks like a Cattle Dog mix.

Gretchen was recently saved from a local pound, so we are still getting to know her. She is staying in a foster home until she is adopted. Her foster mom had the following to say about her:

"Gretchen is a bundle of love and playfulness! She wants to be with people or dog friends all the time and is very eager to please. She also walks amazingly well and is completely housebroken. She is a really great dog!"

Interested in meeting and possibly adopting Gretchen? Fill-out an online adoption application via www.sadiemaefoundation.org. $300 adoption donation, reference check and home visit are required prior to adoption.

While in the care of the Sadie Mae Foundation, all animals are fully vaccinated, heart worm tested and spayed or neutered. Other medical treatments may be provided to our animals, depending upon their specific needs.



Info. about Sadie Mae Foundation's adoption process
Please note that we do not ship animals or do same-day adoptions. Additionally, we ordinarily limit adoptions to homes within CT or no more than an hour or so drive from Hartford, CT in order to be able to conduct a home visit and provide follow-up assistance when necessary. Exceptions are considered on a case-by-case basis.

We try to make our adoption process as easy and painless as possible, but please understand where we are coming from and all of the work that goes into rescuing and rehoming homeless animals. We don't want them to go through this again. Visit www.sadiemaefoundation.org to learn about the process in detail.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Gretchen, a Manchester Australian Cattle Dog dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Australian Cattle Dog for sale in Manchester, or seeking a Australian Cattle Dog dog from a breeder in Manchester.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Manchester 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 Manchester 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!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Australian Cattle Dog breeders who help with Australian Cattle Dog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Manchester paves the way for another one to be saved.
