Dawson's Story...
Update 3/20/11: Introducing Dawson!

Dawson is such an adorable pup! He and his sister Danika were rescued together. Danika is also posted on our site, looking for a 'forever home'. Dawson is 16 weeks old and around 15 lbs right now. He looks like a Flat Coat Retriever-mix.

Dawson has a playful, happy-go-lucky personality. He was just rescued and is staying with one of our volunteers in a foster home until he finds someone to adopt him. Dawson loves to romp around and play with his sister Danika. He likes playing with the other dogs in the household too. Dawson would benefit from some basic obedience lessons, as any pup would. He seems intelligent and we know he'd do great! As we learn more about Dawson, we will update this posting.

Interested in meeting and possibly adopting this dog? Fill-out an online adoption application via $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 to learn about the adoption process in detail.

If you are not in a position to adopt a pet that tugs at your heart strings, consider sponsoring its care. Click here for details.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Dawson, a Manchester Flat-Coated Retriever puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Flat-Coated Retriever for sale in Manchester, or seeking a Flat-Coated Retriever puppy 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 Flat-Coated Retriever breeders who help with Flat-Coated Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Manchester paves the way for another one to be saved.
