Facts about Trip

Trip was playing possum on the side of the road and it worked, because a local animal rescuer stopped to check on him. He wasn’t injured, but was very eager to have human companionship and jumped right in her car to take a ride to the shelter where a DARS foster retrieved him and took him into foster care.
Trip knows simple commands - sit, down, kennel, and shake.  He is very intuitive and is the most compassionate dog his foster parents have ever seen.  When another dog in the home isn’t feeling well or leaves the house for a trip to the vet, Trip is concerned and usually lays by the crate until his friend starts to feel better or returns home from the vet visit.  He loves his humans just as much and tries to console them when they’ve had a rough day or if they are just tired.  Trip is one of the sweetest, most loving dogs we’ve ever seen. He is also a great playmate.  Trip will play well with a 155 pound English Mastiff and Rat Terrier that only weigh 15 -20 pounds, always careful not to step on anyone…….he’s very agile.  Trip has been in our foster care for about 2 years.
Trip has been neutered, he's on heartworm preventative, is housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with all size dogs.  He isn’t good with cats, birds flying over the backyard, or squirrels.

About Desoto Animal Rescue Society

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, and placement of unwanted, abandoned, and abused pets, giving them a second chance at a loving forever home. All animals taken in receive necessary medical care, vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered prior to adoption.

We are not a shelter with a facility where you can visit our pets. All rescued pets live in our own homes, where they are evaluated and cared for until they find their ideal adoptive family. We carefully screen prospective homes and require all applicants to go through an adoption application process.

We are not affiliated with the Desoto County Animal Shelter or any governmental agency. We do not receive any taxpayer funds. We operate solely on donations and the revenue we generate from fundraising events. 100% of our incoming funds go directly towards the care of our animals and to pay our vet bills. All other expenses are paid for by our own volunteers.

Our Adoption Process...

All pets are up-to-date on routine vaccinations and are spayed or neutered prior to adoption. All dogs are tested heartworm negative and all cats are tested feline aids/feline leukemia negative. We require a pre-adoption application and a home visit. To help cover our veterinary costs, we ask for a $125 adoption donation for dogs and puppies and a $75 adoption donation for cats and kittens.
