Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Phoenix is a 9 year old German Shepherd mix who lived his whole life in one home before being sadly surrendered due to a change in family circumstances he had trouble coping with. He's an affectionate, intelligent, playful boy who attaches quickly and loves loves loves his person. His previous owner described him as her shadow and she was not wrong! He also enjoys the company of other medium and large sized dogs, but generally likes to be the boss of the relationship. He has not been tested with small dogs. While he has never lived with cats before, he has been pretty accepting of the dog savvy cat in his current foster home. He may chase cats that run or otherwise react to him though. Phoenix is very food motivated, knows several commands, and walks well on a leash. He is also already housebroken and making big strides in crate training after only a few days in his foster home. Per his previous owner, Phoenix is reactive to children playing and would do best in a quiet, breed experienced, adults only home. He has also been diagnosed with kidney disease and is on daily medication and special food to help keep him at his best. Fortunately, being the snack lover he is, he's extremely easy to medicate and gobbles his pill right down with dinner. Phoenix additionally struggles with separation anxiety, but we are hopeful he will continue settling down as he adjusts to all his recent life changes. This sweet boy deserves a new home to call his own, and he will pay you back with all the devotion in the world. If you think he'd be a good fit, please apply. Experience with the breed preferred. *This dogs adoption fee is $175Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.Interested in this animal?

You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.FOSTER DOG IN NEED OF NEW HOME Location: Central, VA Meet Togo, a 3-4yr old husky who's personality reflects his breed very well.  He's energetic and playful.  His favorite dog friends have all been female (so preferable not a home with another male unless a meet and greet in a neutral location can be arranged)  but no worries, this boy is neutered, UTD on vaccinations, flea and tick treatment,  and HW medication. His ideal home would be with someone who enjoys the outdoors and taking a dog on adventures with them.  He's neutral to people and children.  Not cat tested,  but wouldn't recommend a home with cats.  contact: acefarm20@outlook.com There is an adoption questionnaire as well at an adoption fee and contract.Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.Interested in this animal?

Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Mabel is one of six adorable pups we stumbled upon who were being given away from the back of a vehicle. We scooped them up and brought them into our care. They were 10-12 weeks old at the time and needed some extra TLC, so our amazing fosters have been working tirelessly to socialize, leash train, crate train, and house train them. Mabel is making strides every single day. While she's continuing to build her confidence, she's slowly but surely warming up to wearing a harness and exploring the backyard. She loves kids, and she's learning to trust strangers and taking her time to get to know them.  Potty training is a work in progress, but we're seeing improvements! Mabel thrives on verbal praise, and her confidence is growing by the day. She's just the sweetest!  *This dog's adoption fee is $275. Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.Interested in this animal?
