My story



This pet is being fostered in PICAYUNE, MS. An application can be found on our website. ( Adoption fee is $175

Chico came to us from a nearby shelter. He was taken from a hoarder. He had lived his entire, short life in a trailer, with no human contact. He had not even been outside. He has been with us for several months and we have worked with him. He is very shy and fearful of anyone new. Though, in recent months he has gotten much better, even allowing a pet or a lick of the hand. His foster has worked with him since we got him. When he first came to us, he hid and was too afraid to be around anyone. He now likes to be with everyone. He will allow you to pet him on his terms. Especially if there is another dog/cat, then he wants in on the action. He will allow his fosters to pet him all over, even his belly. He still cannot be picked up. Foster is still working on this. However, once he knows you, he will allow you to pet him, sits on the sofa with you or gets in the bed. Most recently, has periodically started to lie next to or on his fosters' lap. (Huge improvement!) He has come a very long way. He is still not sure of outside, so he uses pee pads. He is very good about using them. He now goes outside with his foster family in a fenced backyard, He is now starting to play with toys. He does well at mealtime. He knows the routine and waits for his bowl or treat. He is very "monkey see/monkey do" so a home with another dog or two would help him feel comfortable, adjust and build confidence. He is pretty smart. More one on one attention is what he needs, than being in foster with many others. We feel he is ready to go to someone aware that he still needs works and/or familiar with helping a dog adjust, trust and feel comfortable. This poor little guy did not even know what it was to be a dog until we got him, He does go outside with his foster family in a fenced yard. He is right by his foster, following them all around. He is not comfortable with small children, so we recommend a home with children over 10+ years old. We will be happy to answer any questions, just email us. Chico deserves a chance. He is very young and full of love he doesn't even know how to give yet. He is a work in process. He loves elderly and quiet people. He is a very handsome, quiet little dog.

He is UTD shots, neutered, housebroken (pee pads), micro-chipped and heartworm (-)

More about this rescue

Begun in 1994, (St. Bernard Parish, Louisiana) the AAS is a small non-profit 501(c)(3), no-kill rescue group dedicated to helping abused, abandoned, orphaned & neglected companion animals by fostering them until they can be adopted into loving homes. We began working in the Picayune/Poplarville, MS, area in late 2005, following Hurricane Katrina. Since then, we have struggled to build our rescue group back up with finding volunteers and placing the many animals in our care into forever homes. Each animal is spayed/neutered, vaccinated & receives any other medical care that may be necessary. Each animal is placed in a foster home. We do not have a facility. These services keep the animals from being unnecessarily euthanized (destroyed) and stops the over population of animals. We work strictly from donations and help of volunteers/foster homes. We are always in need of donations and volunteers/foster homes. The more volunteers & foster homes we have, the more animals we can care for.
