My story

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

Serena has the moniker “Land Hippo” at Home Fur Good. Her rounded proportions and squishy face evoke the comparison to that legendary animal. She also enjoys lolling around in our kiddie pools during the summer, looking very hippo-like. This six-year-old Shar Pei and Pit Bull Mix has a happy-go-lucky personality and she’s always glad to see you.

She’s a curious girl. When she’s out walking, she likes to visit the businesses along the way. She admires herself in the windows, snoops in office hallways, and waters the vegetation. Her favorite activity when she is outside in the yard is just to be with you, especially if you give her a massage. She loves people! She’s not a big fan of other dogs, however. Serena would appreciate being a solo canine companion.
Serena has some allergy challenges and is on a successful treatment regimen. Home Fur Good can provide all the details for maintaining her silky coat and svelte 55-pound figure.

This affectionate and sometimes goofy girlie will reward her forever family with love and devotion and plenty of good times! Give us a call at Home Fur Good and meet our happy hippo. The adoption fee is $225 and includes spaying/neutering, age-appropriate vaccinations, microchipping, and a free wellness visit at Phoenix Mountain Animal Hospital. Our adoption hours are Thursday-Saturday from 11:00 am-4:00 pm by appointment.

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

Home Fur Good has trained adoption counselors to review and question any potential problems/issues with application. We do require an adoption fee which ranges for dogs $150-$300 and for cats $50-$100. All cats and dogs are spayed/neutered, microchipped, vaccinated and vet checked.
If another dog or dogs are present in the household we require a meet and greet prior to adoption. All members of the household must be on board with adoption. We do not adopt our rescues out without meeting person that will be responsible - no "gift" adoptions. We contract that if cat/dog must be relinquished they are returned to us. If there is a change of ownership we must be kept informed who responsible party is. Fees are non refundable.

More about this rescue

Home Fur Good is a non profit no kill animal shelter located in the NE Valley. We take a majority of our cats and dogs from County, many who have treatable medical conditions and would otherwise be put down. We assess physical and behavior and work with the cats/dogs to find the best suitable match. It is our goal that each cat or dog that comes to our shelter ultimately be placed in their "furever" homes.

We also operate a low cost vaccine and microchip clinic each Sunday. We want to help community be able to care for and keep their animals safe. We do not charge vet fee only fee for vaccine and microchip. Additionally we have a low cost dental clinic each Wednesday. Check our website for more details.
