We were contacted by a shelter to take Jeremy in. Someone had dumped him in the over night drop box at their facility. The shelter thought Jeremy was 8+ years old and very arthritic. They worried that they would have trouble placing him so they called us. We got Jeremy to a foster home and into their vet. The good news is that Jeremy is a very healthy 5 years old! He has sustained some sort of trauma to his shoulder and that is why he has some trouble getting around, not arthritis. We are going to treat the shoulder with acupuncture and some pain meds. He does have some trouble with his vision, but he can get around pretty well. Every one who meets him remarks at what a wonderful and sweet dog he is! Jeremy gets along with everyone he meets! But he does show a little too much interest in cats and might do better in a home without cats. Jeremy is up to date on his vaccinations, microchipped, heartworm negative, and neutered. His adoption fee is $175.
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 are roughly as follows:
Dogs under 6 months of age - $350
Dog from 6 months to 8 years - $225 - $300
Dogs over 8 years - $100 - $225
We prefer to adopt in the state of Colorado as our resources are limited and generally we are not able to perform home visits further away than 6 hours. The dogs we rescue are primarily retired commercial breeding dogs and we like to make sure the dog will be comfortable in your home before we complete the adoption. If the adopter lives further away, it is difficult to know how the dogs will react to the new environment. If there is a problem, we require that the dog be returned to the rescue to re-home and the distance to transport could be an issue. However, if you are willing to come meet the dog and are willing to send us pictures of your home, we will consider it. (In state applicants would be considered first if multiple applications were received on the same dog.)
