My story

Ellie Mae

Estimated age: 10-11 years old

Breed: Looks like a lab mix.

Approx weight: 50lbs

- Ellie Mae is one sweet older lady looking for an easy going family to take her under their wing. She will stand by your side accepting pets until your arms falls asleep.

- Ellie Mae gets along with her doggy foster siblings. She is interested in them and is submissive. Will play with them some but doesn't like to play rough.

- She also loves her doggy bed for lounging around and napping

- She loves dinner time (like most labs) and will even 'dance' for her's pretty darn cute. She will do almost anything for a MilkBone brushing chew.

- Just a country girl at heart…I love roaming the great fenced in outdoors (given that it’s not raining of course). Ellie Mae also likes to go for walks

- Ellie Mae's kidneys make her urinate more frequently so she is trained to use pee-pads when she can't make it outside

- Has not been tested with cats

Ellie Mae is an older girl who is on special food to keep her kidneys in good health. Her future adopters will want to check her kidney values every 6 months to ensure they are normal.

Please see our adoptable pets page for a list of the current pets that we have for adoption.

All interested applicants must complete an adoption application for the pet that you are interested in. Applications are considered in the order in which they are received.

One of our volunteers will review the application and contact you via email or phone to ask any questions that we might have. We also reserve the right to perform a home visit for any adoption. During a home visit, a Catering to Cats and Dogs volunteer will come to your house to see where your new pet will live.

If you are not sure which one of our adoptable pets would be right for you, please contact us and we would be happy to advise you as to which pet may be a match, just let us know what you are looking for.

Once your application is approved and a match is found, you will be required to sign an adoption contract and pay the recovery fee
