My story

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

Stevie Wonder presented a challenge when trying to catch him to keep him safe. He was roaming as a stray but due to his blindness was staying pretty much in the same area. We sat for days outside with him, feeding him but if we moved at all, he took off. After many many days, we finally were able to get a slip lead on him and get him safe.
Once we had him, he adjusted really quick to walking on a leash, learning his boundaries and being inside.
We took him to a specialist to check his eyes and learned he is completely blind and nothing can be done to help. He will need to have an annual visit to an eye specialist as he could develop cataracts and infections, that would need treated asap. By having his eyes checked annually, it would avoid any major issues that may arise.
Stevie may be blind, but he is also an escape artist. He needs to be supervised at all times when outside.
He is not your cuddle bug, but does love attention, petting and being near you.. and cream cheese.. he loves cream cheese . ( that is how we finally caught him)
If Stevie is the boy for you please read below.

1. on line application
2. vet and reference check
3. phone call
4. home visit
5 meet and greet
6. adoption
We will travel up to two hours to do home checks. We also truly feel the dogs in our rescue have been through enough. We take in those who are injured, abused, neglected, sick, and abandoned. That being said we search for a home that they are never put in that position again and that fits their personality and needs the best. No more hurt or fear.

Their adoption process


Submit Application

1st step is to submit our on line app. IMPORTANT! Be sure to call your vet and let them know we will be calling for vet references.



After reviewing application, we do a short interview on the phone to insure family is ready to adopt.


Home Check

The home check is next. This gives us a chance to make sure the dog and family are a good fit, and the adopters a chance to ask questions.


Meet the Pet

Meet & Greet must be scheduled within three days after home visit for us to hold the dog for you.


Meet the Pet

If you do not adopt day of meet & greet, a $100 non refundable deposit is required to hold the dog. (Will be deducted from adoption)


Sign Adoption Contract

Sign adoption contract with witness, agreeing to our terms


Pay Fee

Pay the adoption fee and take your new family member home

Additional adoption info

All dogs are current on vaccines, heart worm negative and on preventive, spayed/neutered, and microchipped. We do require an adoption application, references, veterinarian references, and a home check. Upon completing review of application and homecheck, a meet and greet will be scheduled to determine if the dog you have applied for is a good fit with you. At the time of adoption, a contract is required for you to sign. Adoption fee is $250 unless otherwise stated.
