My Story

Hello, everyone! My name is sweet little Kennedy. I have the softest fur and the sweetest face. When you meet me, you'll think I am just a baby, but I'm actually 1 year old. I just have that soft, squishy puppy face. I am a friendly girl who loves people. I am funny, fun-loving and playful. I love toys! In fact, I am in the running for dog who can fit the most stuffies in their mouth at once. I have a motto: Where I goes, the toys goes too. I weigh only 41 lbs and I am full grown. I'm extremely sweet and pretty laid back. I just want a human (or 2 or 3 or 4) to love me forever and ever and to share lots of cuddles and snuggletime with me. I'd love to cuddle on the couch, sniff in the grass and learn fun tricks for treats. I'm very scared of dogs and need a family that will keep me safe and away from other puppies. Could that be you? Adoption fee: $75. Adopt a pair: $115. Fee includes testing, deworming, vaccinations, spay/neuter, 30 days of free pet insurance, one session with a certified behavior trainer and microchip.

Adoption and Foster Care Application

NOTE ABOUT BREED LABELING: Visual breed identification of dogs is unreliable and usually inaccurate. So, for most of our adoptable dogs, we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label.

Why is labeling a dog such a big deal? A label will stick with a dog for the rest of its life. A label can mean discrimination, losing its home or even death. Labels are a problem for the dogs when we, as the local experts on animals, allow adopters, politicians and community members to think that the label we assign can predict who that dog is or will be.

Adoption Process:
Complete the application at www.pawsforliferescue.org. We then arrange a location, date and time for you to meet some pets. If the meeting goes well and everyone is happy, you begin the mandatory, minimum two-week adjustment period with the pet as part of your family. You will pay the non-refundable adoption fee at the start of the two-week adjustment period. This pending period allows your new dog or cat time to adjust to their new home, new people, new routine, etc., and for you to decide if it's a match and the right pet for you. At the end of two weeks (some people extend the adjustment time as needed and that's fine too), if everyone is happy, then we finalize the adoption. Feel free to email if you have any questions.
