date of birth; February 18, 2013...rescued from Rutherford Co, NC Animal Control, a 'high-kill' Animal Control facility run by the local Sheriff's Dept...Rutherford Co, NC does not have a 'low' nor 'no-kill' facility for adoptible dogs/cats.
They will remain with H4S CARes in foster care in Rutherfordton, NC until their furever families are pre-approved to adopt them, at which time, they will be transported any 3rd Friday each month to points north from western NC to westernVA/DC/MD/DE/NJ/NY...all pre-approved adopters from CT, RI, MA, VT, NH, ME must be able to meet our transport in upstate NY)
Ophelia, Odessa, Josie and their brothers, Low Ryder and Angus are extremely sweet, friendly, well-socialized, gentle and out-going. Fat, healthy, happy, playful, loving and in need of more hugs than we can provide.

This litter will most likely grow to be 45>50lbs. They are the perfect size for any sized family. Would make wonderful child's companion.
If you have a space in your life, heart and home for a devoted companion animal, then please consider giving this pup a real chance at love, some fun adventures(include your pet in all your holiday plans...they are part of the family and would miss you terribly if they were left behind) and a secure life.

The adoption fee covers their medical costs associated with the animal, medical and daily care during their
foster period and transport.
All animals adopted by our group MUST BE spayed/neutered prior to finalizing the placement. Most of H4S's adoptables are in foster care in Rutherford Co, NC and will be transported to your area, after age-appropriate quarantine and the pup has recovered from it's speuter surgery.
Your signature below states that you understand any future medical costs are your responsibility and we have made full disclosure regarding our & our vet's knowledge of the health of the animal.
Sometimes, for reasons beyond anyone's control, the adoption does not work out.
In this case, the animal must be returned to Howlin4Spirit CARes at the adopter's expense.
Howlin4Spirit drives transports along the eastern seaboard as far as NY state on a monthly basis.
Adoption contributions are not refundable, for any reason.
