Pictures updated 3/6/12, face picture updated 4/22/12, and posted 2/16/12.  This litter of 4 puppies was born under the house of an elderly man.  He was able to get them into his fenced area at the beginning of February 2012 by placing their food dish inside, but couldn't afford to keep them, and is unable to care for them.  Our rescue is full, but we have placed them in our adoption center 2/24/12 hoping they will get adopted quickly, since we have no other space available for them right now.  The puppies were a little shy at first since he didn't know they were under his house for awhile, but are being handled daily, are already playing with toys, making great progress in coming up to us, playing with us, and should become very good family pets.  On 3/26/12, I have been able to get the remaining three puppies to take treats from my hand, and they are putting their paws up on me almost as if to shake hands.  Brushing, petting, treats, and can food can help them bond with a new family.  The mother also has been helping bring them to us.  They have been started on heartworm prevention, and other maintenance worm medicine.  The mother weighs 38.7 pounds, and looks like a Red Terrier mix.  I had two vet clinics suggest this puppy looks like she has Golden Retreiver in her.

Anna is the last pup from the litter that did not get adopted, and she stays with her mother under our store room that has about 2 feet to crawl under, because they were born under the elderly man's house.  They come out more when the other rescue dogs are put in their crates or awhile.  Anna is bonded with her mother, and would probably need to be adopted with her mother in order to stay at a new environment.  They would also need a place to feel secure so they won't try to escape like one of the other pups did after getting adopted.  Anna comes up to me for treats and will turn around and roll over when she wants to be pet, still a little unsure at times.  She will even come up and nudge me or my hand.

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.
