This is our boy Apollo. He has been bounced from foster home to foster home. Everyone who meets him falls in love but still he waits. Won't you please help his Christmas wishes come true? When he came to us as a tiny baby he was adopted right away. Then a few weeks later he was returned to us in terrible condition. :( He had come down with a non-contagious form of mange that could easily have been taken care of if they had just taken him to the vet or called us to let us know. His next adopter had a change in her life and once again poor Apollo was returned and had another outbreak. We found out that this adopter had started his treatment but then again dropped the ball with it. Now we have gotten him completely healthy and he has completed all his treatments. He is an amazing dog that deserves to be in a home of his own and not a foster home. He is wonderful with dogs, cats and kids and is just so special and loving. We give him a baths and brush him and love him but he wants his special person to come and take him home forever. He is almost 18 months old now, weighs about 45 lbs. and is just an all around great dog. He is fully vetted and neutered as well as a perfect gentleman and crate trained too. He is housebroken and doggy door trained. He loves to run and get exercise and play with balls and toys. If you are interested in Apollo please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for an application. Apollo's adoption fee is $250. He is located in Freeport NY

Rescue Group Info...
We are 3 woman Pattie Lazarus, Denise Abandolo & Rita Accardi who became friends through our passion for helping animals in need.
All of us work at least one full time job and the rest of our time goes for the little souls that need our help. Recently Andrew McBride has joined our crew & he's been a wonderful addition to our rescue
Andrew brings us the balance we need .. along with his expertise in being able to assist with the training & rehabilitation of some of our harder to handle dogs. (I think he's been training us too)
We are as dedicated to each other as we are to the animals. Together we are making a difference. We have dozens of volunteers who help us on all levels
There are some who handle networking, mass emailing, etc. Others who help here on facebook. We have fosters who take in our rescues for a period of time, so that a rescued dog learns to live in a hosuehold
and so that we can learn to get to know the animal a little better ~ also the fosters assist us in getting the animals OUT of the shelters faster & more efficiently. There are also those wonderful people who do volunteer
transport !!! Thats so so important !! and everyone else, who just likes our page or shares our pictures ~ we are ALL in this together.
An adoption application must be completed before any meet and greets or extensive information is given out. All of our animals are home fostered and we must be diligent about protecting our volunteers. Our adoption fees range from $0 to $500 and are determined on a per case basis. Our puppies that are to young to be spayed or neutered will be adopted out and a contract will be signed committing the adopter to perform the procedure as soon as the puppy is deemed ready by a veterinarian. This will be done no later than 6 months of age.
Our animals are rescues. We sometimes don't know everything about the animal as they are usually in our care for a short period of time. We disclose EVERYTHING are aware of at the time of adoption. We cannot be responsible for an issue that occurs weeks or months or years after the animal is adopted.
Opening your heart and your home to a rescue animal is a commitment. It is not for as long as the dog is easy to care for, or, for until you get tired of it. It is for the life of that animal. We will be very selective as to who we allow to adopt our angels. We expect you to be open and honest during the adoption process.
