Sweets' foster mom writes:
Sweets is about a year and a half old. She is current with her vaccines and wormings-she is not spayed yet. When she is adopted through CCSPCA they will spay her as part of the adoption fee. Sweets loves to go on walks, we are still in training because whenever she sees other people or animals she pulls like crazy because she gets so excited. She is wonderful with kids, she plays ball and fetch with my boys, but there are times where she doesn't want to give the toy back because she wants you to chase her! She loves belly rubs and back scratching. She does great inside and out, she had a few accidents in the beginning in the house, but she got better with training. Sweets was found by animal control in Fresno with an embedded collar. We started fostering her first through her recovery time, then she was put up for adoption, but her time ran out, so me and my sister fostered her again. She is such a wonderful baby and we couldn't see having her put down when she survived with that collar embedded in her, then through surgery. Sweets would probably do best as the only baby of the family, Sweets loves to lay on the couch with you and watch T.V., She also loves to fall asleep on the couch on her back with her feet up. She's available through the CCSPCA, her number is 258873 however she cannot be returned there as her adoption time is up. Unfortunately if Sweets has to be returned to CCSPCA, she will most likely be put down.

Rescue Group Info...
We are a brand new rescue-just formed in 2010. We work almost exclusively with the homeless in Fresno educating them on proper nutrition and care of their pets (mostly dogs). We provide food, shots, worm medicines and parasite control to them and arrange for free spaying/neutering. We accept some of these animals in to our rescue when their owners must relinquish them and they are placed in foster care until they are adopted into a forever home. We began working with this population when we discovered that first of all, it existed and second of all that the majority of the homeless population love their animals and want to take care of them properly. We are animal lovers first and foremost and want to be sure that they are cared for and loved by their human family.
We attend any and all events that we are invited to and are working on getting a spot at our local Pet Extreme so that we can work on adoptions of the dogs that are in our rescue. We will also be attending a Super Adoption that will be held at our university in May.
Our adoption fee is $150.
Adopters must complete an adoption application and be willing to submit to a home visit as needed. Once the application is approved, they must then complete the adoption contract which in part requires that if the dog must be surrendered that it is returned to Westside Rescue regardless of the amount of time that has passed. We require that all dogs be indoor/outdoor dogs and that they have access to sleeping inside at night. They cannot be left alone for extended periods of time nor tethered for any reason.
