Cindi was picked up as a stray and rescued from Animal Services. While at Animal Services, it was apparent she was in need of medical attention. 
After a health examination, it was discovered that because of her badly matted hair, she not only had a urinary infection, she had an eye infection. Poor little girl wasn€™t only homeless, she was sick and in
pain. But with proper treatment, she is now well!! She is also spayed.

Cindi is about 15 pounds. She is currently in a foster home with other dogs, but would prefer to be an a €œonly dog. She loves being around people and does no€™t like being left in a room alone without her €œpeople€.
She is also living with 3 cats. As long as they ignore her, she i€™s fine. But if they run, she thinks they want to play and chases them! And just wait till you give her a treat. She wi€™ll stand on her hind legs
for you without any prompting! She is playful, but not excessively active and very alert. She has not taken well to housebreaking, BUT she currently uses puppy pads consistently. Her forever family may
very well be able to train her to a doggy litter box €“ a huge plus in the rainy season! She also does fine in a crate.

Cindi does no€™t like loud noises like thunder, but is better than she used to be. (No doubt an effect of living on the street and being careful when outside!)
She has been fine around children aged 10 to 15.

About Canine Castaways, Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

Canine Castaways, Inc. is a non-profit, all volunteer organization dedicated to rescuing dogs in need, rehabilitating if necessary, and then adopting to approved homes where they will be loved as part of a family while also encouraging responsible pet care and striving to increase awareness of the consequences of pet overpopulation through educational programs and materials. We do not operate from a shelter but rather a network of foster homes in different areas of the state so it may not always be possible for you to meet more than one of our dogs at a time. While this can be frustrating for a prospective adopter, the foster home setting allows us to better evaluate the dogs' temperaments and help them adjust to family life. We deal primarily with dogs under 30 pounds but will also take in larger dogs if a foster home is available.

Our Adoption Process...

Adopting a pet is a lifetime commitment and is a responsibility that should be taken very seriously. Our dogs may have been lost, abandoned, abused or surrendered by a previous family and may require time to adjust to a new home. Many times there will be more than one application for a dog but we strive to match each dog with the most appropriate family.
Filling out an ONLINE ADOPTION APPLICATION is the first step in adopting a new furry family member. Once your application is received, it will be forwarded to a volunteer to set up a home visit and check your references. Once you are approved for a dog, you will be invited to meet the dog at a date and time convenient to the foster family or at an adoption event. It is very important that you read and understand the ADOPTION CONTRACT prior to adoption. At this time, adoptions are limited to within the state of Florida.

Our goal is to place healthy, well-adjusted dogs. All of our dogs are vet checked including spayed or neutered; heartworm tested (placed on preventative if negative and treatment started if positive); up to date on vaccinations (rabies, parvo, distemper, kennel cough); placed on flea/tick preventative; dewormed and provided with any other medical care necessary. Most dogs are also microchipped for permanent identification. All vet records are provided to the adopter at the time of adoption. Our adoption donation, which is normally $250.00 for adults and $300.00 for puppies, is to help offset these veterinary expenses. Our adoption contract allows for a dog to be returned within 7 calendar days for a full refund; otherwise, all donations are non-refundable after that time. If for any reason you decide you no longer can keep your adopted dog, the dog MUST be returned to Canine Castaways.
