My story

Teller is a blind senior who was rescued from the shelter after being found as a stray. The shelter could not locate her owners and she was very scared at the big shelter, so they asked us if we would take her, and of course we said yes! Although she is blind, she gets around great, and can figure out the layout of a home within a few days, she even gets up and down off the couch (her foster mom has a ramp).

Teller is a very smart girl, who is even potty trained, once she figures out where outside is. 
Her ideal home is someone who can work from home, or hang out with her A LOT, because she just wants to cuddle and relax. 
She prefers a quiter home, where there's not too much chaos. 
She gets along great with other dogs, but would be best with other seniors or calm dogs. 

Teller was recently diagnosed with a heart murmur and requires a heart medication everyday (vetmedin)  This medication costst around $50 a month. She also recently received a dental so her mouth is sparkly and clean! 

Her adoption fee is waived to an approved home.

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

We adopt out pets to people living in Las Vegas and Henderson Nevada. As of now we do NOT do out of state adoptions. In order to adopt you must fill out an application. We can e-mail one or you are also more than welcome to fill out one in person at one of our events. *Please be aware we can not adopt out dog or puppies that will be/are over 50 pounds to apartments or condos, with the exception that the dog has special needs or is over the age of 5.* What is included in your adoption? Before our animals are adopted out they are up to date on vaccines, wormed, micro-chipped and spayed/neutered. Why charge an adoption fee? Please be aware that we do not make any money on these adoptions, the adoption fee's are simply to try a recoup some of the money that we put into the animals in the rescue. Any donation or adoption fee goes to saving another life and keeping our programs running. *Please note that although we do our best to keep the website updated some animals may no longer be available for adoption. Approved applicants can adopt on a first come first serve basis, we can not hold an animal for any reason.

Go meet their pets

Our pets are kept in foster homes to provide them with a less stressful environment. We do adoption events throughout the month. If interested in setting up a time to meet our animals please visit our website and fill out an application BEFORE scheduling a time to meet the animal you may be interested in.
