My story

Sunshine is a longer hair black with some gray Chihuahua mix, weighing 11 pounds and estimated to be 10 years old. She gives an occasional ever so soft kiss when she’s cuddling with you on the couch. She loves her cuddles on the couch with her 2 legged people and of course sleeps with them at night, but she will occasionally lounge in a dog bed on the floor. She’ll give a little growl to the other 4 legged furkids while she is on the couch to let them know that’s her space. Sunshine gets along wonderfully with the other furkids in her foster home while they’re all outside and waiting to get fed, she eats side by side with them. Sunshine was rescued from a situation with too many dogs in the home. She was immediately taken to the vet and diagnosed with diabetes. It’s been three weeks and she is spot on with her Novolin N 3 units of insulin twice a day after she eats her prescription WD dog food. She has had a dental with 3 teeth extracted but numerous teeth missing. Sunshine is mostly blind so has a prescription eye drop twice a day. She is such a trooper at getting her shots and eye drops. She waddles around with her tail wagging and finds her way in the house and back yard to do her business. Sunshine is house trained as long as she is let outside on a consistent basis. Little Miss Sunshine is the sweetest little girl who will most certainly be the love of someone’s life. She just needs savvy people who can deal with her insulin shots and eye drops on a consistent schedule to keep her diabetes in check. Sunshine needs to go to a home with no children and a back yard so she can build her confidence and be safe and secure. Because Sunshine is small and only on 3 units of insulin twice a day, the cost for her diabetic needs is not as expensive as you’d think, a big bag of prescription WD dog food along with a spoon of canned WD will last her a couple months. A vial of insulin should last a couple months as well. She will need regular vet visits to check her insulin level. If you have the means to provide this precious little lady medical care for diabetes and eye drops, please consider meeting her to see if you are her forever family that will give her the chance for unconditional love and life.

Dogs are not placed on a first-come, first-serve basis. We strive to find the perfect home for each animal. Applications may take up to 48 hours to process.

All CAWS animals are fixed, microchipped, and vaccinated. Her adoption fee is $100.

Go meet their pets

CAWS does not have a conventional shelter facility - all CAWS animals waiting for adoption are in foster homes. The number of animals we can help find new homes for is closely linked to how many CAWS foster homes are available. For additional information regarding how you, too, can become a foster, please see our fostering page located on our web site! CAWS volunteers bring cats and dogs to the PetSmart near 2100 South and 300 West in South Salt Lake on the third and fourth weekends of each month We are also at the Sugarhouse PETCO (1165 Wilmington Ave) the first Saturday of each month.
