Reggie is a small adult dog looking for a place to call home and a family of his own. Rescued from a dumpster as a young pup the knew that the world was looking up. All of the neighbors knew his story and enjoyed his visits from house to house. In a few months time his rescuer found the new pup as just one more dog and he was left to fend for himself. The neighbors all liked him as a cute neighbor dog but didn't have room for another in their home. Reggie found himself in a predicament as he was tied to a porch after visiting a neighborhood female in heat. Fortunately someone saved him before his fate was sealed and they called Faithful Friends.
In the last few days Reggie has been in a foster home enjoying every bit of attention sent his way. This 22 lb Beagle mix is enjoying regular meals and sleeping in a kennel. He loves to chew on the small raw hides and follows the other dogs outside to potty. Reggie is a great passenger and looks out the windows for a few before relaxing in the seat. After a bath he whines as you dry him off as if to say... "this feels wonderful!" Reggie is about 2 years old and has been neutered. He is ready for to be shown what it feels like to be loved and adored unconditionally.
Update: Reggie is such a trusting pup. I lay him on his back and he falls asleep as his belly is rubbed. When someone is at the door he is great to warn and then loves to meet new people. He has learned to take turns on sitting for his treat and waiting until all the food bowls are filled and in place at meal time. Reggie will make a wonderful companion for a whole family or just the one person willing to make his world whole.
Rescue Group Info...
Faithful Friends Animal Advocates, Inc is a non-profit organization commited to helping our community become a place where animals are treated with kindness and respect. Further, we want to be a voice for the welfare of animals in our community through various avenues. Our goal is to build an adoption center for the Neosho, MO community in order to benefit the abused, abandoned and neglected domestic animals in our community.
The organization is comprised of volunteers who meet nearly weekly to organize events in order that we may serve the community successfully. There are many different opportunities to volunteer and donate time or financial gifts. If you are at all interested or know someone who would like to support our efforts, please contact us.
We typically host adoption events on the first Saturday of every month. All other opportunities to meet our pets are done by appointment only.
If you are interested in one of our adoptable pets; first you must fill out an adoption application. Upon review, FFAA members will screen your application, a meet and greet for you and the pet will be set up. If there are no reservations on either party, the adoption contract will need to be filled out and signed. There is an adoption fee for all animals to help cover veterinary care prior to placement.
We are out of Neosho, MO in southwest Missouri. We strive to help those in need in Newton and McDonald Counties. We do not currently have a facility for holding animals, so we rely on volunteer foster homes.
