Gary lost his job of 7 years when the economy went bad, and has not been able to find another permanent job yet.  Gary received an eviction notice 2/10/11, and all the cats and 2 dogs at his house were surrendered to us to find new homes.

Posted 4/5/11, and pictures taken 3/6/11.  Lex is very sweet, but can be skittish of new people.  He use to be afraid to come near me, but in a short time has become very loveable with me.  Lex and his sibling were puppies at a Wal-Mart parking lot when Gary and Penny took them.  The owners couldn't find a home for them, and were just going to leave them in the parking lot.

D.O.B.:     ? 2003 or 2004
Weight:     about 50 pounds

$80.00 adoption fee will pay for his neuter and vaccinations.  We cannot do his neuter at this time due to him having heartworms.  He was never given heartworm prevention until he came here.  He is too hyper to give the heartworm treatment to, so we are keeping him on prevention for awhile in hopes he can be neutered later on.  If he were to be sedated for surgery, it could kill him.

About Tonya Griffith's Animal Rescue, Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

This is a small animal rescue for cats and dogs. I have several foster homes in various areas, and I also do courtesy postings for people who need help finding a home for their pet, which is about 80% successful. The pet doesn't have to enter a rescue or shelter and the owner is contacted, so they decide who their pet goes to. If a person can't send me pictures, and they don't live too far away, I will go and videotape the pet myself to place pictures on the internet, or have a volunteer get the pictures. There have been a few pets that haven't been able to find a home through this service, but it depends on what the pet is and who is looking on the internet. When we have space available we take transfers from a local kill animal shelter. We also step in and help people who find themselves with multiple animals and no way to pay to get them fixed. Usually I will get all the females fixed to get their circumstances under control, and in some cases I will also help with donated food when I have extra. If they want to find homes for some of the many pets they have accumulated, then I will place their pictures on the internet for them. We don't euthanize unless a pet is seriously ill.

Come Meet Our Pets...

It depends on who has the pet. We don't advertise our address to keep people from dumping animals on our road anymore than they usually do, especially since this is also where we live. I like to visit with a person on the phone first before letting them come meet the pet.

Our Adoption Process...

Cat adoption fees vary from $25 to $55 for males, and $25 to $70 for females, which pays for spay/neuter and vaccinations. Dog adoption fees vary from $25 to $115, depending on how much it cost for spay/neuter and vaccinations. Adoption contracts must be signed upon adoption approval and any pet history information is provided with each adoption.
