Greetings! My name is General. I am a 10 year old male American Eskimo. I found myself in a shelter in the fall of last year because my owner surrendered me. Her husband had passed and she could no longer take care of me. She had noticed that I was not seeing that well, but she did not know I had diabetes! Luckily the shelter figured it out and got me started on insulin. The shelter realized that I needed to be with a rescue that could address my medical needs and transferred me to A Soft Place to Land. My blood glucose is back within normal range and my diabetes is controlled through diet and insulin. I can see some motion and contrast, but I cannot see very well at all. But you know what, it does not bother me one bit! I am one of the happiest dogs you will ever meet and I love everyone! My dream home would have another dog to play with (but I would not mind being an only dog), I would get to go on daily walks or trips to the park to sniff around and plenty of snuggling! I am neutered, micro chipped, up to date on vaccinations, and heart worm negative. My adoption fee is $75. Please visit www.softplacetoland.org to fill out our online application.

Rescue Group Info...
A Soft Place To Land, Inc. was founded in 2010 by two dog lovers and best friends. We are a small foster home-based rescue, so we do not have a shelter facility. As former breeders of English Springer Spaniels, we realized there were too many dogs out there without homes - why breed more dogs?! So we decided to rescue retired breeders so they would not be euthanized. Our hope is that eventually, through awareness of the plight of puppy mill dogs, more people will choose to adopt a pet instead of purchasing a pet through a pet store - making puppy mills a thing of the past!
We have a "donate" button on our web site. We also have a wish list on Amazon.com. We always need cleaning items, old bedding, old towels, dog beds, gas cards, and just about anything else you can think of!
We are having a meet and greets at the following locations
Step 1: Fill out an adoption application.
Step 2: Someone from A Soft Place To Land will contact you to set up a home visit and interview. After the home visit applicants and the rescue can take up to 24 hours to decide if the dog is the right fit.
Step 3: When approved, sign adoption contract and pay adoption fees.
Adoption fees vary from dog to dog, but are roughly as follows:
Dogs under 6 months of age - $300
Dog from 6 months to 1 years - $250
Dogs 1 year to 7 years - $150 - $225
Dogs over 7 years - $100 - $150
