Gretchen's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Gretchen's Story...
Gretchen is a remarkable 2.5 yr old (1/26/14) girl who has been through alot. She weighed just 18# when she was found alongside a country road. In fact, I passed by her first time because she was so emaciated and small I didn't see her. She also had red mange with large patches of hair loss. It was no wonder she was very frightened. She was given IV's and several meals a day. She would not come out of her cage to eat unless I left the room.

Now she is 30#, leash/crate and house trained. She still is a bit shy with strangers, but comes to you to be petted. She gets along well with all other dogs and cats. She shows some interest in pursuing cats, but has never done so. She has a beautiful coat. She needs a fenced yard and a patient family to continue her training. She is very sweet and loving. She is heartworm negative.

Although Gretchen is currently in Amite, Louisiana, transport to New England can easily be arranged through Animal Rescue Front.

About Animal Rescue Front, Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

ARF started in 2005 in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and because of the shocking treatment we saw many animals in the Deep South endure and the extremely high kill rates in their shelter system we have stayed committed to helping animals in the states of Louisiana and Mississippi. Many of these wonderful animals would be killed in a shelter or abandoned outside if not for our continued efforts.

Our Adoption Process...

Adoption donation: $475.00 for our adult dogs 2 to 5 and $375.00 for those who are older than 5 years of age. Neutered puppies <1 year old are $550.00. Un-neutered puppies (not fixed because they are too young) are $550.00 and a refund of $70 will be given to adopter when proof of neuter is presented to us.The adoption donation covers the transport to New England and exceptional vetting from our local veterinary teams down south. As well we reimburse our local rescues down south so they can continue their life saving mission. We do require you to fill out an application and provide a vet reference, and a home inspection may be requested. Every animal we adopt MUST be spayed/neutered and we reserve the right to request proof of this. Our adoption application is on our website at: www.animalrescuefront.org

Thanks for rescuing!

Please note - we will not adopt a puppy to anyone who is not willing and committed to ensuring their new family member never reproduce. Spaying and neutering your pet contributes to efforts to reduce unwanted and homeless animals in the United States and your animal will be healthier. Our adoption fees are nonrefundable after 30 days. If for whatever reason your adoption is not suitable to you or the animal we ask that you return them to us if prior to 30 days.
