Katie - Pint-sized German Shep's Info...
|Breed:||Australian Kelpie/German Shepherd Dog Mix||Color:||Tricolor (Tan/Brown & Black & White)||Age:||Adult|
|Size:||Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)||Sex:||Female|
I am already spayed, housetrained, a special needs pet, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, good with kids, and not good with cats.
Katie is female, about 50 lbs, and 4.5 years old. She is currently in Seattle, WA but her family is re-homing because they feel they are around too many small dogs with their lifestyle and cannot accommodate Katie any longer. Katie can be socialized around larger dogs and would love a big dog sibling to play with. Katie is aggressive with small animals, including cats and small dogs, and so she should not go off-leash or to dog parks. Katie is house broken and crate-trained.
Katie loves people and is affectionate. Despite her herding instinct, she is still gentle with kids and has done wonderfully with the small children in her family. Katie would be happiest in a home where she would get exercise and have a family with kids to love her and give her attention, and maybe a big dog buddy to keep her company and play with her. Her new owner will have to know how to set boundaries and keep Katie’s herding mind engaged with exercise and a job or games (she loves fetch!). Katie is spayed, microchipped, and up-to-date on shots. Her adoption fee is $150. Please email email@example.com for an adoption application or to foster.

Rescue Group Info...
Red Waggin' Pet Rescue is a 501(c)3 that grew out of Connell Pet Rescue. We are a small group of dedicated volunteers that do this part-time and unpaid.
The City of Connell is located in Eastern Washington, and since it is a small city, it has no animal control, no proper animal shelter, and no pet rescue services. Red Waggin' Rescue is fully staffed by part-time volunteers to help the City of Connell Police Department rescue, provide vet care for, and find new forever homes for homeless dogs and other animals from Connell, WA and the surrounding areas. Our volunteers and foster homes are active in both Eastern Washington and the Puget Sound areas.
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.
Email Connellpetrescue@gmail.com for an adoption application form.
If you are interested to make one of our animals your new family member, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for an application form, which you may fill out and email back to us.
Please allow a few days for a response, as we are only part-time volunteers. We require a completed application in order to meet a pet.
Once approved, if you meet a pet and all agree it is a good match: a volunteer will do a home visit, you will sign an adoption contract, pay the adoption fee, and begin the approval period. Generally, adoption fees are $250–$350 for dogs and $50–$150 for cats, and include spaying/neutering, basic vaccines, and microchipping, all required by our rescue.
All of our adoptions include a 7-day money-back approval period. After 7 days, a pet must still be returned to our rescue but adoption fees are not refunded.
