Story
A loving young lady, sweet Toucan is an easy-going pooch who wants nothing more than for you to take her home. A fully grown, two-year-old Boxer and Terrier mix with a classic, short black coat, she is a medium sized gal, weighing 45 pounds. Surrendered by her previous owner due to financial hardship, we are serious when we say Toucan is a sweet one! Affectionate and mild mannered, she is a medium energy girl who enjoys the company of children and other dogs. Felines pique her curiosity too much for a cat to be a good companion for Toucan so she will need a home without a feline resident. She is house and crate trained but still working on her leash training. Although Toucan is house trained, it is important to remember that accidents can occur while she adjusts to a new home environment. Toucan is oh so ready to be an amazing companion. She will thrive in a home with someone who has the time, desire and energy to provide continuous training, exercise and socialization. And lots of hugs and kisses, too. Thinking about bringing this beautiful bird into your nest? Then wing on over to our online Application and make it happen. The adoption fee for Toucan is $500. That includes the cost of spaying/neutering, up to date vaccinations, foster care, rescue and transportation fees. To get the ball rolling, head over to our Adoption Application and submit your application today. A Dog Star representative will contact you within 24 hours. To speed up the process, contact your vet and give them permission to speak with us.If you do not get a response within 24 hours, check your spam folder.March 2, 2024, 6:26 am

Meet Briar!! This poor little guy was found in Mississippi tied to a stop sign all by himself. He was so skinny but so happy seeing someone to come help him. How could anyone do such a thing to a baby? Briar is now safe with us. He is such a happy boy. Briar will make your day with his loving presence. He has a way about him to make you frowns turn into smiles. Briar loves playing with his toys and enjoys chewing on bones. After a long playtime, he will just crash on the couch and take a nap. You can certainly join him and he will cuddle up with you. Briar is a smart cookie as well who is food motivated, so training will be great for him. Fetching Hearts Rescue requires all adopters to go to training with puppies. This is the most important time for them to learn. We also require that they will not be left alone more than 2-3 hours a day. Puppies are a lot of work and require tons of attention, time and dedication. We take our pups very seriously!! Briar is waiting for his forever family to pick him!! He cannot wait to grow up with you and go on hikes, vacations, kids sporting events and wherever else you might have him join you. Apply today!!

Story
  Meet Daya!! Daya once lived in a home with a family in Mississippi who loved her. One day they decided they longer wanted in their house, so they kicked her out and chained her to their porch. The chain was very short and she did not have much room to move at all. Fast forward to now, Daya is a loving girl who has tons of love to give. She is always wanting to greet you with a shake. She knows paw very well. Lol! Even though Daya does not have her family anymore, she is ready to move on and start her life with a new family. Daya will need a fenced yard with a playmate to run around with and play tug a war but also will lay down in sun to take a nap. Please be sure to have lots of toys for her as she loves to squeak, toss them in the air and snuggle with them. Daya is a smart girl who loves to learn, so basic obedience will be great for her and her new family. By the way if your wondering what her name means, here is the definition: "the feeling of empathy toward the suffering of others". Which we all know we need this in rescuing animals. She has so much empathy in her eyes. Daya will be waiting to meet you very soon and become part of the family. She will snuggle with you and give you nothing but lots of love and empathy.

Story
APPLICATION LINK: https://shaynesrescue.com/adoption-application/ We must have an application to move forward. (Shayne's Rescue is an affiliate with PetCentralSATX). If there are problems with the website, please email me for help. SCOOBY is a big boy...at least 60#. His estimated DOB is 1/5/2020...so he is almost 4 yrs old. He is a very FUN dog and loves playing with other dogs but he is exuberant and easily intimidates smaller dogs. He would be a great companion dog for a large breed dog. He loves everyone and just wants to play. He has not had in-house training...in a shelter with lots of dogs, the big ones don't necessarily get the royal treatment. He has been leash-trained and loves to go on walks. After he get rid of the initial excitement about going out, he walks gently on the leash. I do not trust him with a cat. If it runs, he will chase. He sees them as lots of fun. Scooby would be great with a family with older children. Smaller ones would probably get knocked down during playtime. He needs a home with large back yard, I would not recommend him for an apartment. This dog is CURRENTLY IN TEXAS and available for pre-adoption. Adoptions include neuter/spay, vaccinations (DHPP, Bordetella, Rabies), microchip, health certificate, transport with our professional dog transporter, and 6 mos of heart worm prevention. If you have any questions or would like an e-mail from us as to how all of this works, text me (Terry); identify the dog's name and give me your email address... 210-394-6060. You can also go to our Facebook page... https://www.facebook.com/Pet-Central-SATX-866684826744181/ and LIKE us to help us out. After we review your application, we will contact you, and you'll have the opportunity to find out more from the rescue. If you experience any issues filling out the application you can contact us directly at petcentralsatx@gmail.com. This is ONLY if you have problems applying. If you have not applied, you will not receive a response so please only email if you have any issues applying. Adoption Fees The adoption fee includes transportation to the NE. All pups and dogs are fully vetted, spayed/neutered, microchipped, dewormed, have a negative heart worm test for all dogs over 6 months at time of transport, have a health certificate, and have all age-appropriate vaccinations. Some dogs/pups have additional medical, including but not limited to FHO, ACL, hernias, dental, and other vetting. All medical records will be provided to the adopter at the time they pick up their dog. This is a post on behalf of Pet Central SATX Rescue, headquartered in San Antonio, Texas, where there are over 350,000 homeless pets. We have hundreds of puppies/dogs available so there really is no need to apply anywhere else. Also, one application is good even if you are interested in several different dogs...one application no matter which one you choose. Thank you for choosing to adopt a rescue pup/dog. We firmly believe there is NO breed other than "rescue" for all species. Thank you for being part of the village it takes to save these precious lives.

Story
Tex was found as a stray in Austin, Texas. We have no known history about him. He was found with fleas, underweight and had a skin infection. He is microchipped but the owners did not return vets call. We decided to take him in. We brought him to the vet and took care of all conditions. He is well taken care of but he has some territorial issues. We have a 4 yo daughter that he has nipped twice and a new baby on the way so we are unable to care for him at this time. He has also knocked my daughter down a few times with excitement and unable to control his body. He is VERY sweet, but he needs training with leash walking, meeting new people and dogs and territorial things. He growls when he has a toy/ bone and you are in the area or approaching him. He would do so well with someone who has pit experience but maybe not a home with small children. He is has already learned so much so I know he can be trained!
