Story
Sugar and Spice and everything nice! Sugar and her sister Spice were rescued from a pretty sad living situation. They are around 30 pounds and roughly one year old. Both sisters love attention from their human friends and also love other dogs. They are bonded and would love a home together, but can be adopted separately. Sugar is brindle with white and a very beautiful color. She's submissive and shy, but has a very calm and relaxed demeanor especially when she knows she is in a safe place/at home. She does well with potty training, but is still working on leash training. She is very gentle and loving! Sugar would make a great pet for almost any home. Sugar is ready to be adopted and can head to her forever home now! If you're interested in welcoming me or any of my delightful Funny Farm companions into your home, kindly visit ffpets.org. There, you can find information about our Tennessee-based rescue, and gain insights into the adoption process! The adoption fee is $325, with an additional $200 required for transportation. I am ready to travel! Please note that at the moment, this adorable pet is in the care of a foster home in Tennessee but will be lovingly transported to your location once the adoption process is successfully completed. For details on meeting locations and transport arrangements, simply click on the "Transport" tab at ffpets.org. We strongly encourage you to thoroughly review all transport-related information before submitting your adoption application.

Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Sam, also known as Sammie, is a sweet and loving little man.  He is a chihuahua, yorkie, terrier mix and is the perfect specimen of what a lap dog should be. Sammie is small, weighing in around 15 lbs;  absolutely adorable with those ginormous stand-up ears, and only has eyes for his favorite humans.  He longs to be held and snuggled as much as possible and would never turn down a good nap in bed with his people. Sammie came from an overcrowded situation, so he is used to being around other canine friends. He would very much love for his forever home to have other friendly dogs; he would also do well with cats in the home. Sammie walks well on a leash and really enjoys his time outside with his best friends.   He is working really hard on housetraining, so he would need a patient family able to help him continue his progress being a great house companion.  He is neutered, up to date on vaccines and on monthly flea/tick and heartworm preventatives.  Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.IMPORTANT - PLEASE READ Click here for the ADOPTION APPLICATION if you are interested in adopting this pet.

Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Peppercorn is a very sweet, loving dog who forms a very strong bond with his human. He wants to be with you, and would do best in an active household that can provide him with a higher than normal level of physical and mental activity typically needed by his breed types. He loves fetch, walks, and toys. He is very intelligent and responsive to training, curious and adventurous. He knows, sit, stay, lay down, and 'give me paw'. Peppercorn would do best in a household of older children (12+) who are able to read his body language and respect his boundaries, as well as provide him with firm instructions/boundaries and stop play if Peppercorn becomes too rough. His adult owners should be confident leaders and breed savvy about the temperament, needs, and stubbornness of Jack Russells and Miniature Pinschers.  Peppercorn is a very energetic puppy who is still learning manners when it comes to playing with other dogs. He generally does well with other dogs of all breeds and sizes if he is thoroughly exercised and engaged, however if bored/understimulated he will challenge both dominant and submissive dogs for play or their toys. His play style can become rough, and he should not be left unsupervised with other dogs until he has fully integrated into the household and understands/respects other dogs' thresholds. His foster continues to work with him on this, and his new home should be prepared to continue exercises to help reduce or eliminate this behavior. Any introductions to other dogs and children should be done slowly and carefully by adults. Peppercorn had a lot of instability in his short life, and also suffered from skin and digestive irritation due to suspected fleas/mites and/or allergens. Being constantly in pain made him reactive toward other dogs, and his humans when they tried to treat him. Now that he has established trust with his foster, he allows his human to easily give him baths, clean his paws, trim nails, and so on. For his first initial vet visits, the vet should apply a muzzle. His paws should be kept clean at the end of the day as the cause of irritation to his paws could still be related to allergies. This is a very easy routine that Peppercorn has now come to love, and he will fall asleep in his human's lap.  Because of the instability and level of constant pain/discomfort Peppercorn suffered, aversive training tools or techniques like shock/e collars, prong collars, etc. should NOT be used as that will make him anxious, insecure, and reactive.  Peppercorn should be kept in a crate when his humans are not at home, and should be fed separately from other dogs to prevent any food guarding/aggression while he is settling into the home and establishing his place. Peppercorn generally ignores cats,but will chase if one runs. Peppercorn is learning recall but his prey drive for wildlife is high, and so should never be allowed off leash unless in a secure area.'Peppercorn is up to date with vaccines, and on monthly heartworm/flea/tick meds.     Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.IMPORTANT - PLEASE READ Click here for the ADOPTION APPLICATION if you are interested in adopting this pet.

Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.PLEASE BE MY VALENTINE  Some of you local folks may remember Rita Joy – the little dog that was taken to the Watsontown ER after being injured by a “hit and run” driver near the Selinsgrove State School in early December 2023, Thankfully, little Rita’s injuries weren’t serious, and she was taken into Haven to Home Canine Rescue’s system.  After being spayed and having a complete dental, Rita is now hoping for a loving forever home in this New Year.  Between 10 and 12 years old, Rita is low energy. She spends a lot of time in her dog bed, cuddling on a warm lap, or being a “chair hog”. Her caretaker said, “if I leave my comfy chair for one moment, Rita quickly plants her little fanny in the empty spot, places it in “park” when I attempt to “dethrone” her.”  Rita is very good with foster’s grandchildren who are 5 and 7 years old, great with the two resident cats and most likely with other dogs.  For her age – she is very agile and can easily navigate steps. Rita loves to go for car rides and looks calmly out the window.  She likes to go for short walks but does pull a bit on the leash. Although she NEVER barks, she has given a low growl when the cats have tried to steal her dinner.  How dare they?  Rita has very few teeth left after a dental—but she has a great appetite and easily eats moistened kibble. Occasionally she has accidents in the house, but we have some good suggestions to manage this.  Won’t you consider giving Rita a loving home for the remainder of her life.  You’ll be rewarded with cuddles and kisses.  Her adoption fee will be sponsored. Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.IMPORTANT - PLEASE READ Click here for the ADOPTION APPLICATION if you are interested in adopting this pet.

Story
Lucky Lionel is a most “LUCKY” dog since he was snatched out of the middle of a highway in rural Tennessee and avoided being run over by one of many cars and trucks.  His life was changed right there in the middle of the highway when a rescue angel loaded him in her car and carried him home to safety.  Noone ever came forward to claim this boy on social media and we are happy to offer this special 4-5 year old, 15 pound boy to a special Jack Russell loving family.  He is a boy that likes mature adult dogs and tolerates puppies.  He is good with the young child and fine with the cats at the foster home.  He basically ignores the cats and cuddles with the child. Lucky Lionel is the little guy that wants to be the center of attention.  He is pretty good on leash and is almost potty trained.  Rare when he has an accident. This boy is smart and adorable and loves to sit next to you or in your lap.  He is not needy for love but does ask for it. True to form he is a JRT who is an independent spirit but one that gives back over and over with fun and love.  If you are interested in this boy please know that he is best in a fenced yard and he could go for nice long walks with you daily to get off the energy.  Email us at ccrnewengland@gmail.com PLEASE NOTE:   Our dogs and cats are fostered in Tennessee and can transport weekly up to the Northeast region.  Request an application and learn more about Critter Cavalry at https://www.crittercavalry.com/adoption.February 27, 2024, 9:44 pm
