My story

In February 2017, we were notified that there were puppies living on their own in a wash. After 3 days of digging under a huge pile of brush and digging into their underground tunnels, we pulled 5 puppies out.

There were about 4 to 5 weeks old at that time.

Sarge has been adopted and returned at no fault of his own. We have learned that he can become possessive of his human (usually female) and that he will do best in a home with a yard (no apartments) and a home where there is someone home most of the time and he has a playmate. If left a lone with no other pets in a crate, he will find a way to escape.

Sarge has this cute "smile" he does when he gets excited, adopter must realize this smile and is not a snarl. He does good with children and other non-dominant dogs. He has not been cat tested. He will need a yard that is secure with a fence.

He will need some time to adjust to new surroundings but if you have the patience and love to give him, you will not regret it. He is an amazing boy. His last adopters were heart broken to return him but living in an apartment and both being gone the same hours all day was not a good fit for Sarge.

He is neutered, up to date on vaccines and microchipped.

Contact us for more information. Call, text or email is fine. Quicker response usually with text or email.

Additional adoption info

Rainbow Valley Animal Search and Rescue (R.A.R.)
has a process for making sure each adoption is a perfect fit for both the animal and the family.

Because we want to make sure it is a good fit for all involved, we conduct in-home meet and greets, so the dog you are interested in can meet all humans living in the home as well as any other pets. The home check also consists of making sure your yard is secure and home is a safe environment.

Once it is determined the dog would be a wonderful addition to your family, we would then go over the adoption contract. Once that is complete, you are officially the owner of a new furbaby!

Our fees are $200 for adult dogs and $225 for puppies, unless other wise noted.

More about this rescue

Rainbow Valley Animal Search and Rescue is a non-profit organization that specializes in the rescue of stray animals in hopes of returning them swiftly to their homes. In the event that no owners are found, the placement of abused, unwanted and abandoned companion animals becomes the priority. We also on occasion, take in animals that owners no longer can keep. In some instances, we have fostered the dog for a few months until the owner can get back on their feet and be able to keep their dog.

By involving and educating the community, Rainbow Valley Animal Search and Rescue works to raise the public's awareness of the plight of homeless animals as well as realizing the benefits of adopting an animal in need. We also focus on raising community awareness of the importance of spaying/neutering pets and providing informational resources to pet owners.

All animals are examined, vaccinated, spayed or neutered and microchipped before they are placed in carefully screened homes.
