Java's Info...

Java's Story...
Hi, my name is Java. I am a very attractive boy looking for my forever home. My previous owner could not keep me because she was moving. sadly enough she didnt do me any favors because she sheltered me so much from life that I am quite scared of a lot of things. So who ever adopts me will have to take baby steps with me and be understanding. I lived in a yard and house, the yard was fenced in with a wooden fence and I never really seen the outside world and when company would come over she would put me in another room. there is no reason for doing it, I do not have a mean bone in my body. I am more comfortable with women then with men. they do scare me. I will have to go to a home with a fenced in yard, please no underground fences this will only add to my fears. I am hoping that there is someone out there for me that will take the chance in me. I really am a very loving boy once I get to know you. I will take my paw and gently paw at you if you stop petting me as if to say please don't ever stop. I will be neutered before adoption, microchipped, heartworm tested, wormed, treated for fleas, distemper vaccination, and rabies vaccination. please come and see me today

Adoption Fee is $200

Adoption fee covers for our Adoption Package for dogs which may include if over 6 months of age: heart worm checked, treated for any fleas and worms, microchipped, up to date rabies vaccination, spayed/neutered, Distemper vaccinations, basic and problem solving training before and after adoption if needed. Full health records are provided to the adopters.

The Adoption fee we ask of adopters is not to pay for the dog. The dog itself is free! The Adoption fee is used merely to reimburse our rescue for veterinary expenses that any responsible owner would spend anyway when bringing a new dog into their home. Howeverever if there are any funds left over from one dogs adoption fee, it is used to help the next dog that comes along. Sometimes FSFH's veterinarian expenses on one animal will be less than this fee, but another dog might require several hundred additional dollars worth of care. Without being able to recover at least the minimal veterinarian expenses on our dogs, FSFH could not continue to rescue. FSFH's fee does not cover the general cost of keeping a dog in rescue (food, equipment, etc.). FSFH relies solely on donations to cover all other expenses related to caring for their rescued dogs. Thank you for understanding.

If interested in adopting please go to to get an application.

We also accept donations of dog food, cat food, cat litter, and large durable dog toys. Vet care Donations needed also!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Java, a Bay City Golden Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Golden Retriever for sale in Bay City, or seeking a Golden Retriever dog from a breeder in Bay City.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Bay City 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 Bay City 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 Golden Retriever breeders who help with Golden Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Bay City paves the way for another one to be saved.
