I am a 3 year old male Shih-Tzu, as cute as a button and although I am blind in one eye, that doesn’t stop me from keeping up with the best of them!
I was picked up on the streets of Miami as a stray dog. Thank goodness they didn’t take me to the High Kill Shelter. Instead I was taken in by a woman who contacted Rescue in New York. She did try to find my owners before I was put on transport with the other dogs who headed north to find their forever homes.
I am one friendly guy who love, love, loves people and other dogs! Cat’s don’t bother me at all! I get very attached to the human kind and love to be cuddled and loved. I would do best in a home where there is someone home a good part of the day, or with someone who might take me out with them. If there is another dog in the house with me, then I probably wouldn’t mind staying alone with them.
I am Neutered & UPD on all of my shots. I am on Heart Worm and Flea and Tick preventative. I am also microchipped.
Rescue Group Info...
Orange County Barker's Rescue is a small non-profit organization made up of a group of volunteer dog lovers who primarily Rescue dogs from very High Kill Shelters in the southern part of the US. Once rescued our dogs are completely vetted and all medical needs are taken care of. They are spay/neutered, up to date on all vaccinations, are tested and treated for heart worm and all parasites. They are given heart worm and flea and tick preventative and are microchipped. They stay in a local foster until transported to us in New York. Once with us, we then get to know the dog and work with the individual needs of each dog. We teach them socialization, with both people and other dogs. We start them on basic training, as well as potty training. We keep our Rescue dogs with us until we feel they are really ready to leave and go on to their new life in their forever homes. We work very hard for our dogs, and love them as if they were our own.
Our Mission Is Simple
Rescue - Rehabilitate - Re-home
We don't discriminate against age, health or breed. We are a non-breed specific Rescue. We Rescue the small and the large, the sick and the aged. We love them all and they are all worthy of a second chance in life.
"We don't know the past chapters of their lives, they are lost and forgotten. From the time we take a dog into Rescue, we vow, that every chapter, until their final one, will only be happy ones." LHKane / Founder -OCBarker's Rescue
Adoption Events will be posted. We do have a small facility and you can make an appointment to come and meet some of our furry friends after an Adoption Application has been approved. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for an Addoption Application or call (845) 597-4043.
By adopting one of our dogs it gives us the opportunity to save another life!! Please think ADOPT, and don't SHOP!!
If you see a dog that you think might be a great match for you and your family, we first require that an Application for Adoption be filled out. We do check Vet references as well as personal ones. After you become an approved adopter you will receive either an email or a call from us to let you know. We do require a Home Visit. If you're not local to us, we work closely with other Rescue Groups and trusted volunteers who can do the home visit for us. There is no exception to the rule. Every one must have a home visit done before we place one of our dogs. We have a binding contract that must be signed. Our contract states that in the event you no longer can keep a dog or cat that has been adopted, for whatever the reason, they come back to us. Our contract also states that you are adopting a dog/cat and will keep them as an inside pet, will vet your dog/cat once a year, provide them with a good balanced diet and fresh water.......
All of our pets have been spay/neutered (unless they are too young) are UTD on all vaccinations, are on Heart Worm and Flea and Tick preventative and are microchipped. They are ready for adoption and have a clean bill of heath unless there is an issue with a special needs animal, and in that case you will know everything there is to know about them.
Our fees vary and range from $200 - $350
We are always busy, so please be patient. We WILL answer a call or an Email. Email seems to work better for us, so keep that in mind.
We are a small Rescue Org, located at the foothills of the Hudson Valley, in Orange County, NY. We have many dogs who are transported to their forever homes in the North East (by one of our transporters) and have placed dogs in homes as far as the Mid West. We do require a home visit by a reputable Rescue Org. in the event that a potential adopter is too far away from us to do it ourselves. We work closely with other Rescue Groups, so please don't let distance put you off if you really feel one of our dogs might be a great match for you and your family.
