Meet Opera! A sweet and beautiful two year old spayed female German shepherd mix. Opera is full of energy, which makes her and ideal pet for an active owner like a hiker or runner. Opera is always willing to play and be petted. As any Shepherd dog, she is s strong breed and is a bit sensitive to other dogs so a firm and savvy owner is required to help educate her.
Opera’s background is far from ideal. She was rescued by a volunteer in rural Guatemala and she was hurting pretty bad in the back by machete injuries. Nobody knows exactly what happened. What we know is that she is fully recovered and despite all this, she is full of life and always happy and ready for a play or walk.
Opera will be coming to the Seattle area in mid-February. If you would like to meet her, you will need to fill out an application first. Please email to request one.
There is an adoption fee as we are a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit. 100% of the adoption fee is used to cover Opera's travel expenses to Seattle and to support more dogs at our rescue. We currently house over 300 dogs at our shelter. See more information at www.animalaware.org.
AWARE (Animal Welfare Association - Rescue/Education) is a non-profit, non-governmental charitable organization, founded in Guatemala in 1998. AWARE is financed solely through membership subscriptions and private donations. The principal activity of AWARE is running spay and neuter campaigns. We have a permanent on-site spay/neuter clinic, run monthly spay and neuter campaigns using volunteer vets, and work to raise awareness for animal welfare in Guatemala. We also rescue and rehabilitate hurt animals. We believe in education as a sustainable means to embetter the lives of all animals, and we work to educate students in local schools about the topic.
Adoption fee will vary by dog.
An adoption application and contract is required.
All our adoptable dogs come from Guatemala. A poor country where dogs are malnourished due to poverty or are abandoned due to lack of appreciation if they are not pure breeds.
We are now serving the Seattle area thru a small network of volunteers to offer different and beautiful dogs.
