|Size:||Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)||Sex:||Female|
Just like Winn Dixie, our little Dixie ended up a stray, who got caught and put in the dog pound. Dixie is a puppy she is very friendly and would do great with kids. She loves other dogs too! She is very energetic but not hyper. She is de wormed, and has had her first puppy shots. We are looking for a home for her, where she can have a big fenced yard to play in, with someone who is either a stay at home mom, or has a very flexible schedule, so they have the time to train, and spend with a puppy. She is so lovable, she makes you just want to pick her up and give her a big hug. Dixie has not been tested with cats, but as young as she is, I think she will do fine with them. She is roughly, 20 lbs right now, and I would not expect her to get bigger than 35 lbs. Dixie is in foster care in Eastern WA, but can be easily brought to Seattle for an approved adopter. Please email email@example.com for an application to adopt her !
Rescue Group Info...
I started this rescue in April of 2012 with the goal of trying to get people in my community involved in saving dogs and cats. I work with the Police Department in the tiny Eastern Washington city of Connell to pull every dog out of the makeshift pound, provide it with vet care, and find it an adoptive home.
We also take in abandoned pets or pets that have to be re-homed from other towns and communities in the surrounding region.
We have a small group of part-time, unpaid volunteers both in Eastern Washington and in the Puget Sound area that help with transport, fostering, and other responsibilities to make our adoptions possible.
It is my overall goal to provide this area with a lasting no-kill program so no more dogs or cats need to suffer.
Although there is a small holding area managed by the City of Connell Police Department, Red Waggin' Rescue/Connell Pet Rescue has no permanent shelter facility.
Our animals stay in foster homes while they await their new homes, that are found in Eastern Washington and all the way to the Puget Sound area.
Generally, if an approved adopter is interested in another part of Washington State, transport can be arranged and runs roughly every other weekend.
Our process begins with an adoption application. Once this is approved, we have a meet and greet. If that goes well, the adoption begins. An adoption contract is signed, an adoption fee paid, and we let the new family take the pet home for a 7-day approval period.
We also take a new family picture as well. If an adopter decides not to keep the pet during the 7-day approval period, the adoption fee is returned when the adopter returns the pet. After this time period is over, we still take the pet back, but the fee is not returned.
We try to microchip all our pets, so that if they are ever in trouble, and get lost or loose, or end up in the shelter, we can make sure that they will be returned to the adopter or to our rescue. We will always take a pet back if needed.
We try to spend time with each adopter to help them understand how to best introduce a new cat or dog into their home, and what to expect. We.are also very mobile and we actively transport dogs to adoptive families all over Washington State. We attend very few adoption events so if you are interested in one of our pets, please email for an adoption application and we can arrange having a volunteer bring the pet to you once you are approved to adopt.
