Story
***Rudolph is currently located at our rescue in Georgia but also available for adoption in the New Jersey and surrounding areas. If interested in adopting Rudoplh, please submit an application at socorescue.co. A team member will contact you ASAP if your app is approved to adopt Rudolph.*** Rudolph originally came to SoCo as a very young puppy after being found discarded, with his eight siblings, in a box along a lonely stretch of road.  Rudolph is a fun, active and playful boy who also enjoys playing with other dogs. He's loves attention and is affectionate.  He is sometimes nervous when meeting new people but if you ignore him and give him time to warm up, he be your best buddy ever! Rudolph was briefly adopted by a family new to dogs with young children. Unfortunately, he was not a good fit and had to come back to SoCo.  It's possible that the level of energy unsettling to Rudolph.  He also was not neutered.  Since being back at the rescue, he has been neutered and the staff say he is a friendly fellow.  He has been kenneled with other dogs and plays well with others! We are thinking that Rudy would do better in a home without small  children and an experienced dog owner.  He is food motivated and seems to learn quickly.  With the right person, he will be a wonderful companion.  He could be a good second dog but a meet and greet would be important to establish compatibility.   Rudolph has been neutered, is up to date on all of his annual vaccinations, been de-wormed and kept on his monthly preventatives. He did display very good house training ability at his former home but may need a refresher course once adopted. A microchip will accompany his adoption. If interested in adopting Rudolph, please submit an application at socorescue.com (no need to register or login).   Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.May 28, 2024, 1:50 pm

Story
Annabelle tends to be a little reserved when first meeting new people. She's not the kind of dog that jumps on everybody she meets.   Give Annabelle a couple of days to get acquainted with you and she'll be your best friend and more than happy to receive belly rubs and being playful with you. We think that Annabelle will do best in a low commotion type of home and one without young children. Annabelle has preferred being without the company of other dogs and we're not sure if that will change once in a new home.  She is laid back, likes a walk and some play time and would be a good fit for someone who wants a calm dog.  She may bark when someone approaches the home making her a great option for someone looking for a family companion that will also ward off strangers. She's been at the rescue for a couple years and now it's here turn to find her forever true home! ————— Annabelle was nursing a litter of pups when she found as a stray within our area. We're not sure if she was abandoned after her litter was born or became pregnant while homeless, only that she was in dire need of being rescued. All of her pups have gone on to find their new homes, but Annabelle had to remain with us while we got her back to good health as she was extremely malnourished and heartworm positive when she arrived. In addition to being treated for her heartworms, Annabelle has also been fully vetted and kept on her monthly flea/tick and heartworm preventatives. A microchip will accompany her adoption. She has displayed signed of having once been housetrained but may require a refresher course once in a home.

Story
***Baron is currently at one of our foster homes in Georgia. He is available for adoption both in the Georgia and New Jersey areas with transportation to the north covered. To apply for the adoption of Baron, please first submit an application at socorescue.com. Questions about Baron and/or our adoption policy should be directed to socorescue8@gmail.com. Please do not call the number listed for SoCo as the staff in Georgia stays very busy and is unable to field calls at this time.*** Like a death row inmate awaiting the call from the Governor, Baron was really praying that his stay of execution would also come in time. He was locked up at the Laurens Co Animal Control and out of "time" in which to have a licensed rescue pull him. A few days earlier, Baron met a nice man who came and took other dogs out of the troubled animal control, even stopped to speak with Baron. And while this man promised to come back for him, Baron was beginning to believe the man had forgotten him. But then Baron heard a familiar voice call out to him and say "See, I told you I was coming back for you!" Standing there before him was the same nice man he'd met a few days earlier and he was carrying a leash. Baron's stay of execution came through just in the nick of time. Baron learned that this man was named Scott and he was with a dog rescue called SoCo Rescue. Baron didn't fully understand what all that meant, but he sure was happy to be out of that animal control an n the SoCo Rescue bus.  Baron's first stop was to see a vet where he was tested for heartworms, which his test results came back negative, and he received a bevy of vaccinations,  de-wormers and other things that didn't taste real good but were very good for him. From there, Mr. Scott took him to a foster home where he's been since. During that time Baron was also neutered and has been kept on his monthly preventatives. He's also proven to be very friendly to people and other dogs, even getting along great with his foster family's older dog. Baron has also displayed some house training experience but may need additional training once in his new home. There's no doubt that Baron will make a great family companion. To apply for the adoption of Baron, please submit an application at socorescue.com. If chosen to adopt Baron, a SoCo team member will contact you ASAP. Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.May 28, 2024, 1:50 pm

***Dolly is currently located at our Georgia facility but also available for adoption in the New Jersey and surrounding areas. Questions about Dolly and/or our adoption process should be sent to socorescue8@gmail.com. To submit an application for the adoption of Dolly, please visit our web page at socorescue.com (no need to register or login) or click on the following link:https://www.socorescue.com/forms/form?formid=1628 Dolly, her mom and two brothers were all found as strays. The family that found them had other dogs and decided to keep one of Dolly's brothers, but gladly surrendered the others to our rescue. Dolly was about 3 months old at the time, flea infested and a bit underweight. We took the trio of dogs into our care and initially placed them into a foster home, but have since brought him to our rescue. We provided them all with the love and care that each needed and saw a rapid improvement to their health.  Dolly was the larger of the three pups and no doubt the alpha. She is very friendly and playful but does tend to boss her brother, Danny, around. She should be fine around other dogs and she is already very playful and affectionate around people. She seems to be highly intelligent and should pick up rather quickly on any training that her adopter gives to her. She'll make a great family companion, even with children who know how to properly treat a dog.  Dolly has been spayed, received an update on her annual vaccinations; de-wormed and treated against parasites and started on her monthly flea/tick and heartworm preventatives. She will need all of her basic training. Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.May 28, 2024, 1:50 pm

***Tabi is currently located at our rescue in Georgia. She is available for adoption in the New Jersey and surrounding areas as well. Questions about Tabi or our adoption policies should be sent to socorescue8@gmail.com; please no phone calls. Applications for her adoption should be submitted at socorescue.com (no need to register or login.)***   After a local couple found that a frail looking stray female dog had taken up residence at their home, they decided to offer her a place to stay. At first, she was very apprehensive of the couple but had no problem interacting with their other dogs. Over the next few weeks, she slowly began to accept their friendship but remained a bit wary and would simply walk away when they tried to get too close to her. This was ok with the couple as they were very happy to see that she had regained "a lot" of weight in a very short time.    One day, the female dog didn't show up for breakfast, nor did she return by dinner that night. Days, weeks passed and no one saw any signs of her and the couple wondered what became of her. Then one morning the couple saw her emerged from the woods with four young puppies following not far behind. Her above average weight gain, the disappearance for a few weeks all made sense now. And with her return, the mom dog began to have physical interaction with the couple. But the biggest surprise came the following morning when a fifth pup, obviously part of the same litter, came hobbling from out of the woods. The couple quickly noticed that this pup, who had open wounds on her back and the lower part of her right rear leg was missing, leaving her with a bloody stub with the bone exposed. When the couple brought us the pups, they offered to give their mom a home.    Tabi was very timid when she first arrived, but that was due to being separated from her mom, being in a new environment and all of the other changes that she just went through. She's become more and more accepting of new people, being playful and enjoying her time with people. She'll do best in a home without a lot of commotion and noise, so we don't recommend a home with small children.    Tabi is up to date on vaccines, HW preventatives & received a  Bordetella vaccination  She will come with a microchip too.  Tabi will require all of her basic training.
