My story

Aries is an absolutely lovely staffer! She had a very difficult life for the first 7 years since she was on the streets with a homeless owner With great good luck, she was taken into foster by a friend of the homeless owner. However, that foster had to recently give her up and she is in a temporary foster home with dogs and cats . Aries is 7-8 years old and a pittie mix She is great with other dogs, cats, and does beautifully with children Her first foster had 4 children. She trains easily and follows directions. She adapts easily and transitions well. She is simply a loving and personable dog. She loves her walks and playing with other dogs

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

We ask the potential families to visit the dog, then, if interested in going further, email them an application. The application is for the purpose of knowing a family's strengths in pet ownership and where we can help. We then do the home visit to get the dog comfortable, fill out the contract and complete the adoption. We support the families after adoptions and keep in contact with them with updates and helping with issues that may arise. We require the family to take the dog to positive training that is approved by our organization. We also work with a healthy diet and give additional information.

Go meet their pets

We rarely do adoption events. We don't adopt out from a pet store because of our policy to do home visits. Meet and Greets are successful and we do them at civic events, walks, etc. Our Rescue is on facebook, craigslist and petfinder.

More about this rescue

We are a group of volunteers who are concerned with the number of shelter pets and euthanizations. We feel that education is an important key to lessening the number of shelter pets. Rescuing pets is an ongoing process and with education of responsible pet ownership, we feel we will make a difference.
