My story

**I will need an adopter local to Macon, GA**

Name: Finn (Finnegan)

Age: 3 years old

Breed: Shepherd/retriever mix

Weight: About 50ish pounds

Vetting: Up to date on vaccinations, neutered, heartworm negative, and microchipped

Before FAR: Finn was rescued from an abandoned house as an older puppy by animal welfare. It was clear that he had not had human interaction and was terrified of humans. It has taken tremendous patience, but Finn has come a long way from the scared puppy that he was to the quirky, funny dog that would thrive in right home. Finn will need an experienced dog owner. While Finn has come so far, he still can be unsure in new situations and needs an owner that can recognize these instances. The great thing with Finn is that in most cases once he can get through the insecurity of a given situation, he is fine with it going forward.

Ideal home: Have at least one confident playful dog for Finn to model. Finn may not ever be the typical close human companion, but he loves other dogs and would be a loyal companion and playmate to another dog that shares his energy level. After many months, Finn is still adapting to loving humans as much as he loves other dogs. He certainly appreciates humans for their willingness to provide food and water and has no problem letting them know when it is mealtime. He is slowly but surely coming to appreciate head and belly scratches and that may come even quicker in a home that isn’t quite as full as his foster home, but his ideal home will have the patience to let him be the dog he is, which is kind of perfectly Finn.

If you are interested in giving Finn a forever home, please visit the link below to fill out an application! It is best to submit an application through a computer. We have experienced some problems when applications have been submitted using a mobile device. *When you submit the application, you are not obligated to adopt however it does reserve for you the opportunity to adopt that particular animal. We review them on a first come first served basis. If your application is approved, we will contact you and allow you the opportunity to adopt. If you choose not to adopt, we will contact the next approved applicant. If you have any questions or difficulties, please contact us and we will be glad to help!

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

Our adoption process starts with the potential adopter filling out an adoption application. In the application, you can specify a particular dog in which you are interested, or let us know what type of pet in which you are looking, so we can find the perfect animal to fit your family and your needs. Once the application is received, a board member will review the application, and make contact with the potential adopter within 48 hours. This initial contact may include further questions/more information, or may include scheduling a meet and greet for you to meet the animal in which you are interested! Once the application is approved or the meet and greet goes well, then the adoption can be finalized. To finalize the adoption, an adoption agreement must be completed, the adoption fee paid (we accept cash, paypal, or credit/debit card), and then the potential adopter can take their new family member home with them or schedule pick up of their furry family member! The adoption fee varies based on the dog or puppy you are interested in. Some of the adoption fees have been listed on the individual dog's description but if you do not see one then please reach out and we would be happy to talk to you about it! If you are interested in any of our animals, please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have!!

Go meet their pets

We hold adoption events some Saturdays at various locations around middle GA from 11 am-3 pm. Check our Facebook page for updates on Events! We are also able to arrange meet and greets for local adopters!

More about this rescue

Furever After Rescue, a 501(c)(3) organization, is a no-kill, foster-based rescue devoted to finding homes for animals needing a loving home. Most of our animals come from local, high-kill shelters with some occasionally coming from bad situations and owner surrender. Our animals are immediately placed in foster homes where they learn love and are taught how to live in a home environment. All of our animals are up-to-date on their age-appropriate vetting needs and are tested for personality traits as best as possible. We have many wonderful pets looking for forever homes!
