I'm Paloma. When people first see me, sometimes they aren't sure what to do. In my former life, someone docked my ears to make me look tough. Have you ever heard, "Don't judge a book by its cover?". Well, that's me. I may look like a fighter, but I am the sweetest dog you'll ever meet.
I am always so excited to see my Westside friends when they come to visit me and take me to adoption events. They call me "Paloma the pig", because I wiggle like crazy when I'm happy. One of our awesome volunteers is fostering me and I play with her kids - I love snuggling with them on the couch after they take me outside. I even like their cat!!
I'm ready to leave my old life behind and start anew with a family who can see just how golden I am inside. I am a strong girl and would greatly benefit from a confident handler and some training lessons, but I am eager to please. If you would like to meet me (and see my wiggles in person!), please contact Westside Rescue (email@example.com) and we'll set it up!
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.
