Hi, my name is Brooklyn! I am a 4-5 year old Pitbull Terrier / American Bulldog mix. My foster mom wrote me a letter that said I am the SWEETEST girl in the whole wide world. She had to write me a letter because I am a special girl in the sense that I am deaf. Being deaf, you can imagine how scary the last few months of my life have been. I was thrown over the fence at a shelter on a cold night in January with my sister. It was so cold there and I was so scared. There were all kinds of dogs barking and I really missed being around humans. They took me into the shelter and apparently my time was up, whatever that means. The nice people at Zoe's House took me and my sister in and gave us a warm place to sleep and lots of love. About two weeks after being in foster care I delivered 8 beautiful puppies. I was so glad that I went to rescue and was able to be a mom to my babies. My foster mom says that this is the last time I will be a mom. Thank goodness, because I was used as a breeding machine! All of my puppies have since found homes, and I am still in foster care. I live with a 3 year old little boy, who I love to pieces and a bunch of other big dogs who are really fun to play with. My foster brother was a young male rottie, and we had lots of fun! I just finished my heartworm treatment the end of September and I am HEALTHY!!!!!!! My deafness does not cause an issue because I am very food motivated and I love to please! My favorite thing to do is sit out on the deck with my foster mom and curl up on one of the cushions and just hang out! I am as lovable as they come! I do not particularly care for small dogs or cats, so a home without them would be best! A home with children would be great, or other large dogs to play with! I will need some help with my basic manners, but I am doing so well everyone says! If you are interested in giving me a bight future from my dark past, please fill out an application on the website at www.zoeshouserescue.com. Time to go snuggle with my mom again! Kisses and licks for now!!!!!!
Rescue Group Info...
Who We Are:
Zoe's House, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit animal welfare group based out of Sinking Spring,PA. We are comprised solely of volunteers that generously volunteer their time, their homes and their hearts. We are dedicated to rescuing homeless, neglected or abandoned animals from high kill shelters or from owners who can no longer care for them. We provide the animals with loving foster care, veterinary treatment and rehabilitation until we are able to pair them with compatible and loving forever homes. At times we also offer permanent sanctuary to those with special or medical needs and that are considered unadoptable.
Zoe's House serves as a resource to our community and to our adopters by
providing education and information on responsible pet ownership, the importance of spay/neuter, behavior training, nutrition, puppy mill awareness, heartworm preventative and breed education. Our organization also networks with other shelters and rescues. We try to assist other organizations when possible.
Zoe’s House is not federally funded, and relies solely on donations to continue to rescue. Although we are not breed specific, the need to save Dobermans, Rottweilers, German Shepherds and Pitbulls is ever growing; therefore, we have focused primarily on saving the lives of our beloved and majestic strong breeds.
What We do:
There are many people involved in the rescue, rehabilitation and re-homing of each dog we take in. Our rescue effort starts with the initial intake request for a dog. Whether this be at a shelter of from an individual in the community, we try to gather as much information as we can. We then pickup or transport the dog to safety in rescue. At this time we administer immediate veterinary care to determine the health of the dog and ensure the animal has proper immunizations. We also have bloodwork done for a heartworm check, lyme, fecal and sometimes a blood panel depending on the age and health of the dog. The dog remains in "in-home" foster care and becomes a part of the fosters family for an undefined period of time. We evaluate the dog and work on basic manners and obedience. At times we have dogs for a longer duration due to health and/or age. The dogs in our care come with us to adoption events, home screenings, and ultimately permanent placement. Zoe's House then provides post-adoption follow-up and support and welcomes the new family to the "Zoe's House Family!" We strive to stay in close contact with all of our adopters to ensure the transition and life long relationship continues to be magical. We remain dedicated to the principal that we never want one of our rescues to end up in a shelter or in a home that does not provide a responsible and loving environment for the life of the animal.
We truly believe that one dog at a time... we are making a difference!
