These girls for whatever reason cannot seem to find a loving home. They keep getting overlooked by others wanting younger dogs or super vintage dogs. However let me tell you Vintage and middle age puppers are FANTASTIC! They don’t have any bad puppy behaviors, they aren’t super energetic, they are so thankful for the loving safe home you provide and to be a member of a family again. These girls were adopted from the shelter when Leabelle was just a puppy. Then when they were an inconvenience due to moving (you know to a mystery state that doesn’t allow dogs), they were surrendered back to the same shelter without a second thought. The owner was told they could be immediately killed, he didn’t care, signed them over without a care in the world. He turned around and left without a second thought as these girls had to be physically encouraged (pulled) to leave the spot where they were they seemed cemented to the floor, waiting for their owner, their whole world, their entire life, to come back. Imagine the confusion and heartache when they were put in hot, non temp controlled kennel run, in a crowded and loud shelter, the stress of the dogs barking and pleading for their lives is palpable for humans I can’t even imagine the impact on the dogs, dogs smell death so imagine the thoughts racing through the heads of these amazing girl, it makes my stomach upset. A plea immediately went out to rescues because if not immediately tagged they were going to be euthanized, the shelter was full. We couldn’t stand it and we pulled them. Since their arrival they have been anxiously awaiting a permanent family, or even long term temp family where they could actually settle in! However they just keep being overlooked. 



 



These girls are bonded we believe a mom (Nessa) and daughter (Leabelle) and at Nessa’s age we feel splitting them up would be beyond stressful and cruel. We are looking for a home for both girls TOGETHER. We know this is a big ask but that’s our role, to save the dogs that need the “big ask” so here we are! 



 



If you’re considering adopting or fostering please consider this amazing pair of sisters who need a break. They deserve to be able to settle in somewhere and not be juggled around. They deserve to be members of a family again. They are the perfect size, they are house trained, they know commands, they are fantastic. They are just waiting for their perfect FURever.

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

We require an adoption fee which ranges based on age of the dog or cat. We also require a completed (and obviously accepted) adoption application, and home and reference checks. We don't do this to be nosey, but because when we bring an animal into our program we make a promise to that animal that they will go to the best home for them. We are more concerned with the quality of our adoptions than the quality
