Ms Lizzie's Story...
dob:~9/15/2009 -super-sweet Ms Lizzie-@12lbs- and her litter of 4 tiny puppies(dob: 9/15/2010-all have been ADOPTED!- were found by a gas delivery man, in between housecalls. They had been 'dumped' close to a church, in a very rural area of Rutherford Co, NC. He called a friend, who contacted H4S for our help. They were covered in sores and barely had any hair on them. Through a skin scraping, it was determined that they had Demodectic mange, which they have been treated for and are now ready for her own furever home. Mz Lizzie's adoption fee is $275(includes spay, microchip, Parvo/Distemper, Rabies, & Bordatella vax, current health certificate and transport from foster care in western NC > points N, as far as CT).
Lizzie is in foster care in Rutherfordton, NC

****Our goal in rescuing and re-homing animals is to provide them with a
loving home for the rest of their life. The adoption fee covers their
costs associated with the animal, medical and daily care during their
period and transport.
All animals adopted by our group MUST BE spayed/neutered prior to
finalizing the placement. All H4S's adoptables are in foster care in
Rutherford Co,
NC and will be transported to your area on the 3rd Saturday of each month,
after age-appropriate quarantine is complete and being spay/neutered and
Your signature below states that you understand any future medical costs
are your responsibility and we have made full disclosure regarding our &

Sometimes, for reasons beyond anyone's control, the adoption does not work

adopter's expense. Howlin4Spirit drives transports along the eastern
seaboard as far as NY state on a monthly basis.
Adoption contributions are not refundable, for any reason.****

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ms Lizzie, a Rocky Hill Dachshund dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Dachshund for sale in Rocky Hill, or seeking a Dachshund dog from a breeder in Rocky Hill.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Rocky Hill 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 Rocky Hill 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 Dachshund breeders who help with Dachshund rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Rocky Hill paves the way for another one to be saved.
