Joey's Story...
Joey is a sweet schnauzer, whose owner recently died. Joey, as well as his father Obie and brother George, were loved and cared for, but must now find new homes. Joey loves to follow his foster mother around and talk to her. He is friendly with people and other dogs, and will need another dog in his adoptive home. Joey likes to cuddle on the couch and watch TV. He is house and leash trained, and is learning crate training. He is a big boy, and we currently have him on a weight reduction diet. This will need to be continued in his new home. Joey will be a wonderful companion for some lucky adopter--perhaps you?

Joey weighs 26 pounds, is salt and pepper in color, and 5 years young and active. He has cropped ears, and a docked tail. Joey is being fostered by Mariane and her family in Allison Park, PA. His adoption fee is $250. Our vet package includes a spay or neuter; dental exam, with extractions if deemed necessary by the vet; rabies vaccination with tag, and DHPP vaccination; clear heartworm test; clear fecal test for other worms, and preventive deworming. Any illness found during the vet exam is treated. We give you a written record from our vet of these and any other procedures performed to provide to your own vet. In season, our rescued dogs are on flea/tick and heartworm preventives.

Please note: Some of our dogs need a fenced in yard, and this is specified where required. If you do not have a fenced in yard, we require that you purchase an exercise pen so the dog can be safe when outside. These are available online for less than $60, and you must bring proof of purchase to your adoption appointment. Most of our dogs are small, and cannot be tied out. You will receive a lifetime prepaid microchip registration, and a 60-day limited trial for pet insurance from a third party. In addition, we provide our foster family’s notes on your dog’s routine, including food, schedule, and social skills. An adoption packet will be given to you at your adoption appointment, and includes other suggestions that will help you and your dog establish your new relationship,. We also have a Facebook page for our adopters, and we have a volunteer who can answer questions on training your new pet.

We are not a shelter—our dogs are cared for in foster homes by our volunteers. We do not ship or transport our dogs. You must drive to the foster home to meet your dog. An adoption appointment is scheduled after you complete an online application, and are approved for adoption. We work on potty skills in foster care, including crate training, potty pad training, and use of exercise pens. Most dogs are potty trained by the time they are adopted—the foster mother can update you on the status of your dog’s skills at the time of adoption. Adopters must be prepared to continue training and socialization after adoption, particularly for dogs that were released from a breeder, and are just learning to live in a home.

Please visit our website to learn more about our adoption procedures and policies, submit an adoption application, meet our volunteers, and learn how you can benefit from the 9+ years of rescue experience of our all-volunteer, non-profit rescue.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Joey, a North Benton Schnauzer (Standard) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Schnauzer (Standard) for sale in North Benton, or seeking a Schnauzer (Standard) dog from a breeder in North Benton.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in North Benton already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a North Benton breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Schnauzer (Standard) breeders who help with Schnauzer (Standard) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in North Benton paves the way for another one to be saved.
