Vanilla Bean - lovely Lab mix's Info...
|Breed:||Labrador Retriever/Australian Cattle Dog Mix||Color:||White||Age:||Adult|
|Size:||Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)||Sex:||Female|
Vanilla Bean (also called Nilla or Beanie Bean) is a female Labrador mix who was rescued after being abandoned. She is about 4 years, old, small framed, and weighs about 50 lbs (although she is a little more at the moment as she has been eating a little too well at her foster home J ). She looks to be mixed with cattle dog/red heeler. Vanilla Bean is unsure with new people but warms up after a few minutes, curious and all smiles and wags once she is used to you. Nilla has got along great with her foster brother and other dogs she meets, and she would probably like a home where she has a dog sibling to hang out with. She is not tested with cats but has not really shown prey drive.
Vanilla Bean is crate trained, house broken, and knows how to ask to be let out to go to the bathroom. She is mellow in the house and likes to hang out and follow her foster mom and dog foster brother around. Nilla walks okay on a leash as well, and although she does get excited and pulls some times, she is always improving. Nilla is very food-motivated and loves all kinds of treats: apple slices, zucchini, cantaloupe, pear, and of course cheese and dog salami!
Nilla does have a formerly broken and poorly set hind leg, which doesn't prevent her from walking or running but may begin to impair her movement in a few years. Make no mistake though, she loves and needs her daily walks and a chance to run around outdoors as well. Vanilla Bean's adoption fee is $250 and includes her spay, basic shots, rabies shot, health certificate, heartworm tested negative, and her microchip. Beanie Bean is being fostered in Seattle but she will need a few foster by Saturday, February 23 or as soon as possible following. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would an application to adopt to meet this sweet girl.
Rescue Group Info...
I started this rescue in April of 2012 with the goal of trying to get people in my community involved in saving dogs and cats. I work with the Police Department in the tiny Eastern Washington city of Connell to pull every dog out of the makeshift pound, provide it with vet care, and find it an adoptive home.
We also take in abandoned pets or pets that have to be re-homed from other towns and communities in the surrounding region.
We have a small group of part-time, unpaid volunteers both in Eastern Washington and in the Puget Sound area that help with transport, fostering, and other responsibilities to make our adoptions possible.
It is my overall goal to provide this area with a lasting no-kill program so no more dogs or cats need to suffer.
Although there is a small holding area managed by the City of Connell Police Department, Red Waggin' Rescue/Connell Pet Rescue has no permanent shelter facility.
Our animals stay in foster homes while they await their new homes, that are found in Eastern Washington and all the way to the Puget Sound area.
Generally, if an approved adopter is interested in another part of Washington State, transport can be arranged and runs roughly every other weekend.
Our process begins with an adoption application. Once this is approved, we have a meet and greet. If that goes well, the adoption begins. An adoption contract is signed, an adoption fee paid, and we let the new family take the pet home for a 7-day approval period.
We also take a new family picture as well. If an adopter decides not to keep the pet during the 7-day approval period, the adoption fee is returned when the adopter returns the pet. After this time period is over, we still take the pet back, but the fee is not returned.
We try to microchip all our pets, so that if they are ever in trouble, and get lost or loose, or end up in the shelter, we can make sure that they will be returned to the adopter or to our rescue. We will always take a pet back if needed.
We try to spend time with each adopter to help them understand how to best introduce a new cat or dog into their home, and what to expect. We.are also very mobile and we actively transport dogs to adoptive families all over Washington State. We attend very few adoption events so if you are interested in one of our pets, please email for an adoption application and we can arrange having a volunteer bring the pet to you once you are approved to adopt.
