found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered, housetrained, and up to date with shots.
UPDATE February 15, 2013: What a difference a few months can make when saving a dog's life. Ricky feels fantastic! He has steadily gained healthy weight and the sunken look on his face has disappeared, replaced by a contagious, giant, heart-warming smile and a sparkle in his eyes. His heartworm treatment is over and he is now heartworm negative! So it's time for Rick James to find a lifelong, loving home to call his own. Show him what forever really means. Promise him he'll never know another day of neglect, starvation or pain. He's eternally grateful to the people who gave him a second chance at life and he couldn't be happier. Adoption fee: $75.
August 10, 2012: It still amazes us that anyone can mistreat a dog like this. This boxer mix was abandoned in the backyard of an empty house. His family moved and left him behind. He tested positive for heartworm and was about 30 pounds underweight by the time we found him. He has already gained back healthy weight and muscle mass, plus started heartworm treatment. He’s doing well but he needs a foster care home or adopter. RJ is a very mellow, submissive and laid back American Bulldog mix who loves people. He needs to keep gaining weight and would like to find someone to shower him with attention, love and TLC. He deserves much more than what he’s been given thus far in life. Please help us help RJ. He’s a sweetheart
NOTE ABOUT BREED LABELING: Visual breed identification of dogs is unreliable and usually inaccurate. So, for most of our adoptable dogs, we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label.
Why is labeling a dog such a big deal? A label will stick with a dog for the rest of its life. A label can mean discrimination, losing its home or even death. Labels are a problem for the dogs when we, as the local experts on animals, allow adopters, politicians and community members to think that the label we assign can predict who that dog is or will be.
Complete the application at the link above or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to tell us which pet you're interested in and we'll send you a questionnaire that will help us make the best match for you and your new pet. We then arrange a location, date and time for you to meet some pets. If the meeting goes well and everyone is happy, you begin the mandatory, minimum two-week adjustment period with the pet as part of your family. You will pay the non-refundable adoption fee at the start of the two-week adjustment period. This pending period allows your new dog or cat time to adjust to their new home, new people, new routine, etc., and for you to decide if it's a match and the right pet for you. At the end of two weeks (some people extend the adjustment time as needed and that's fine too), if everyone is happy, then we finalize the adoption. Feel free to email if you have any questions.
