My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Decker was extremely stressed when we accepted him into the Safe House January, 2014. His owner moved to assisted living and he could not go. A friend took him and left him in a crate all the time for several weeks. It took us just a short time to reassure him he was safe, and loved. Decker has blossomed into a precious loving little Chihuahua. He delights in toys, loves rawhides and best of all wants your attention. He has short black fur with cream markings. House trained, and will use a potty pad if he can not go outside. He is a cuddle bug and loves to be held. He likes toys to play with.
DOB 2-5-11 Current on vaccines, has life time fee paid ID chip, Neutered

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

After meeting and bonding with the dog, an adoption application is completed.
Two major requirements: Monthly preventatives MUST be continued EVERY month year round to prevent heartworms
(caused by mosquito bites) and flea / tick topicals to prevent diseases caused by the parasites. Second requirement: that you continue to spoil the fur baby as much as we already have them spoiled!
Adoption fee $175.00 EVERY dog is current on vaccines, has been tested for heartworms, flea/tick diseases (treated if necessary), have been spay/neutered, and has an ID chip PRIOR to being presented for adoption. Hours of operation 7 days a week 9-4:30.
If you have a dog in the home and looking for a companion, please bring your dog to the Safe House to be sure there are NO issues between the two fur babies. We do not want you to get home and have a problem with either dog.

More about this rescue

Morris Safe House is a "NO KILL" facility for dogs! The Safe House is a 501C3, non-profit organization, founded in May, 2008. To insure the health and safety of the dogs, a state of the arc facility was constructed on donated acreage. The facility features a climate controlled interior with 6X8 foot kennels that open through a doggy door into a covered identical outdoor area. All floors are concrete and each little resident has his own bed.
During the first three years over 1300 dogs has been rescued with an adoption rate of 97%. Our adoption rate is high because before any dog is presented for adoption, all measures are taken to give each the best possible chance for a long healthy life in a loving, safe, forever home.
Volunteers are a vital part of our Safe House. Volunteer opportunties are endless because of our hours 7 days a week 9-4:30. Walking dogs or playing with dogs in our fenced play areas offers a nice break from the hetic pace of daily routines. The dogs LOVE new faces to interact with. No group is too small or too large to visit the Safe House.
We are a favorite of youth groups.
