My story

Chance has a sad story. He was found locked in a storage unit so badly matted he couldn't walk or see. He was understandably very distrustful of strangers and still barks in warning at them. Chance is 8 1/2 years old and about 10 pounds. He has one damaged eye that affects his eyesight but there is nothing that can be done about it. He has lived with 3 other dogs and a cat. The best environment for him would be a child free home where he can be the only dog. Grooming can be challenging because he does not like his face touched. Cleaning his eyes, mouth, and ears makes him nippy. Other than his face, he does well in the bath and doesn't mind being brushed and doesn't mind having his nails clipped. He's potty pad trained but also loves being walked outside to potty. He walks great on a leash. He's a very sweet dog if you don't touch his face, although he has gotten much better about it and may come to accept it with patience and training. He doesn't mind being left alone and is a low-maintenance senior dog that enjoys napping the day away. He does not mind being picked up or handled but not a cuddlier, and would be a great companion to a special someone that's willing to give this poor guy, that has overcome so much, a chance to finish out his life with love and compassion.

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

View available pets on our website. Adopt-a-pet is not always accurate. Our website is accurate up to the minute. Browse our website. Website notes: Updated animal data is sent to the website as frequently as possible. Be sure to refresh the adoption pages in your browser for the latest information. Profiles of available pets are displayed on the available for adoption pages (Dogs and Cats). All information we have concerning an animal’s temperament and health is included on their profile. Meet the animals and an Adoption Counselor Once you’ve found an animal (or two!) that you’re interested in adopting, please email us at to set up a meet and greet with the foster family who is taking care of that pet. All pets have received an examination and assessed for any health or possible behavioral concerns to the extent possible while in our care. REQUIREMENTS: All members of the family along with any other dogs must be present to meet the new animal to make sure that everyone is compatible! Dogs must not live as outdoor pets and all animals are REQUIRED to be spayed or neutered. Certain breeds will not be adopted to apartment dwellers. We also reserve the right to refuse to place an animal in a home without a fenced in back yard. We adopt our animals based on a first come, first qualified basis. Our main concern is to match our animals with the most ideal home, the decision is based on many different factors. Complete the adoption If you so choose, you are able to take the pet home on the same day that you first meet them. When you’ve found a great match, it’s time to complete the adoption process! You’re welcome to ask our volunteers or fosters questions about training and for tips on helping your new pet adjust to your home. Placing Pets on Hold: We do not place animals on hold. We adopt out on a First Come, First Qualified basis. Medical or Behavior Consults: If the pet you’re interested in has any medical conditions, we will arrange pre-adoption consultations with our medical / clinic staff so you know what to expect.
