Courtesy posting for another rescue: Hi I'm Axel and I'm a handsome 6 yo male long-haired Rottweiler. I was about to be put to sleep in a shelter in the south when I was rescued and restored to health. As you can see from my before and after picture I have come a long way. I am neutered, up to date on vaccines, micro-chipped and on heartworm prevention. I would be a good pet for someone who works because I enjoy relaxing around the house, I do not chew anything other than my toys and I am fully housebroken. I am such a gentleman I would never consider marking in the house. I would also make a great dog for a retired people because I am gentle and calm and walk very nicely on a leash. I have a medical condition which causes me to have calcium deposits in my spine. It is called Spondylosis. It causes me no problem, I don't even need medicine for it at this point. I will have it for the rest of my life though so I need to be in a home with no children who may want to be overly playful and cause injury to my back by rough-housing. I can go to a home where grandkids come to visit, I would just need to be crated to be sure I did not get hurt. I am not fond of small dogs or cats so I need a home with another low energy large dog or where I will be the only dog. My foster mom said that since I have special needs, my adoption fee is waived and the adopter can make a donation on my behalf in the amount of their choosing. If you are interested in giving me a forever home, please complete an application on our website at www.zoeshouserescue.com Thanks for your interest!
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!
