Meet Ambrose, a 2 year old Boxer mix rescued from a high kill shelter in North Carolina. Ambrose used to be tied by a huge chain to a dog house outside and was hardly ever given food or water. When the animal control officers took him, he was skin and bones. He was held in the shelter for 6 months as evidence for a cruelty case. Ambrose was finally released to be rescued in October and was brought north to Zoe’s House right before Hurricane Sandy. Ambrose had never lived in a home prior to being rescued and has done very well with adjusting to his new life. He went from being chained to a dog house with little to no human interaction, to living in a home with 3 other dogs, 2 human children, and 2 adults. Ambrose has taken to the life quite well! He was very nervous at first, but has been gaining confidence every day. Ambrose was also scared of his 5 year old human foster brothers in the beginning, but has been warming up to them pretty well. He still gets skittish around them at times and for this reason, we feel he would be happier in a home with older children, ages 10+. Ambrose’s foster canine siblings include a female Miniature Pinscher, a female Greyhound mix, and a male pit bull. Ambrose and his foster brother, Captain, are not overly thrilled with each other (though they have been photographed snoozing away on the couch together!), so we feel Ambrose would be better suited to a home with no other dogs or female dogs. Ambrose loves to play with his canine companions, but still hasn’t really learned his limits and can get carried away at times. He loves people, especially his foster mom, and needs lots of positive attention. He is very eager to please, but didn’t come from a very good background, so he’s still adjusting to his new life and will require a lot of patience. Ambrose is housebroken, crate trained, and has been neutered by a new procedure called zinc neutering.

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!
