My story

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

Casey is a senior girl, who has been with us for many years now. She came to Before the Bridge as a puppy and has been here ever since. Casey may be 10 years old now, but she is SUCH an active girl, you really would never guess she is an older dog! She gets along beautifully with other dogs, did get along with our kitties and loves everyone she meets. She DOES need someone who is willing to work with her exuberant personality! Casey is very treat motivated and would be easy to train and teach things.

We do suspect she has a torn CCL, though she seems to have developed enough scar tissue that it does not bother her at all. She can run and jump and act like a goofy puppy. We would love to see Casey get a nice home of her own. Very young and heart, she would make a great companion for someone.

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

When a potential adopter identifies a dog or cat in which they are interested, they contact Before the Bridge to request an application. Once the application is received and approved, a home visit is set up during which we bring the chosen pet to the adopter's home to meet and greet with all the occupants both human and animal. If the home visit goes smoothly, the adopter will sign a contract and pay a $200 donation fee ($100 for cats). We then leave the pet in their new Forever Home and do a followup phone call in a week or so to see how things are going.

*Please note: Although the City of Garland Shelter is making great strides in the right direction in their treatment of Pit Bulls, they still have a long way to go. Therefore, Before the Bridge does not adopt Pit Bulls to residents in Garland. We regret this inconvenience and will continue to monitor changes in that City.

Go meet their pets

Our pets are shown at Adoption events only. We cannot arrange for you to visit our homes or show dogs on any days other than Saturday or Sunday.

Regular adoption events are held each Saturday at various Petsmarts in the area in conjunction with the Straydog Inc group out of Gun Barrel City. We are there from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Please come by and see us!

Special events are announced as they become available.

Thank you for your understanding.

More about this rescue

Before the Bridge is comprised of 3 die hard rescuers. We are a new group, formed in September of 2008, but our rescue experience spans many years. Dogs and cats are now housed at a new location in Caddo Mills. Dogs are routinely transported to local adoption events for the public to see. Folks may also take a look at our Adoption Book to look for their new friend and companion. We also have pets listed on a fellow rescuers site. We accept any breed but have specialized in Pit Bull rescue. Because we are small, our space is limited as well as our finances. Donations of money, food, or supplies are always very welcome. We do not euthanize to make room for another animal so when we are full, we must say no to taking in a new rescue.
