My story

Meet Georgia! Georgia is a 9 month old Norwegian Elkhound/Great Pyrenees mix. She came to us in September with a broken back leg which required surgery and an external fixator to correct. She has since recovered wonderfully and is ready to find her forever family! Georgia is very sweet and loves hard. She is high energy and very vocal when she wants attention. Her favorite things are running around the yard and playing with her foster siblings. She would make an excellent running or hiking partner! She could potentially excel in learning a dog sport to help keep her stimulated. She would do best with another fur sibling to play with and help relieve some of her energy. She is great with dogs of all sizes but sometimes needs to be reminded that they need some personal space. She has been exposed to cats and while she is fine with them, she is learning that they don't really want to play and so will need to learn to respect boundaries. Georgia would love an active family who can match her zest for life! Any human siblings should be older than 12 because of her high energy and likelihood of knocking over little ones. Her ideal home is a single family home with a physical fence to allow her the freedom to run and play like she loves to do. She is mostly potty trained but will need further training to get her where she needs to be. Potential adopters must live within 2 hours of Berks County, PA. Georgia is spayed and up to date on her core vaccines and preventives. Her adoption donation is $450. **Please note that we accept applications ONLY via our website and do not receive any through third party websites such as Adopt A Pet or Pet Finder.**

More about this rescue

Who We Are: Zoe's House, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit animal welfare group based out of Sinking Spring,PA. We are comprised solely of volunteers that generously volunteer their time, their homes and their hearts. We are dedicated to rescuing homeless, neglected or abandoned animals from high kill shelters or from owners who can no longer care for them. We provide the animals with loving foster care, veterinary treatment and rehabilitation until we are able to pair them with compatible and loving forever homes. At times we also offer permanent sanctuary to those with special or medical needs and that are considered unadoptable. Zoe's House serves as a resource to our community and to our adopters by providing education and information on responsible pet ownership, the importance of spay/neuter, behavior training, nutrition, puppy mill awareness, heartworm preventative and breed education. Our organization also networks with other shelters and rescues. We try to assist other organizations when possible. Zoe’s House is not federally funded, and relies solely on donations to continue to rescue. Although we are not breed specific, the need to save Dobermans, Rottweilers, German Shepherds and Pitbulls is ever growing; therefore, we have focused primarily on saving the lives of our beloved and majestic strong breeds. What We do: There are many people involved in the rescue, rehabilitation and re-homing of each dog we take in. Our rescue effort starts with the initial intake request for a dog. Whether this be at a shelter of from an individual in the community, we try to gather as much information as we can. We then pickup or transport the dog to safety in rescue. At this time we administer immediate veterinary care to determine the health of the dog and ensure the animal has proper immunizations. We also have bloodwork done for a heartworm check, lyme, fecal and sometimes a blood panel depending on the age and health of the dog. The dog remains in "in-home" foster care and becomes a part of the fosters family for an undefined period of time. We evaluate the dog and work on basic manners and obedience. At times we have dogs for a longer duration due to health and/or age. The dogs in our care come with us to adoption events, home screenings, and ultimately permanent placement. Zoe's House then provides post-adoption follow-up and support and welcomes the new family to the "Zoe's House Family!" We strive to stay in close contact with all of our adopters to ensure the transition and life long relationship continues to be magical. We remain dedicated to the principal that we never want one of our rescues to end up in a shelter or in a home that does not provide a responsible and loving environment for the life of the animal. We truly believe that one dog at a time... we are making a difference!
