Click Here to Sponsor Me! (just write my name in the notes) Adoption APPLICATION: Muttsinneed.org/adoption-application   ** Application must be completed prior to a meet & greet.                                   Our Adoption Process:Muttsinneed.org/adoption-process   If you haven’t been following Sweet Pea’s story…let us fill you in on the journey this girl has been through.  At a young 8 years old, Sweet Pea came into a high kill shelter as a stray. With a face as sweet as hers, we knew we had to rescue her.  Since rescuing her, she went straight into the best foster home where we learned she had a lump on her body. We immediately took her to the vet and learned it was a tumor and coordinated to have it removed.  After further testing, we learned it was a cancerous tumor, and the vets pulled out as much of it as they could.  Despite going through such an intense surgery, Sweet Pea, has been the biggest trooper and still wagged her tail every day.  Going back in for a check up, we ran more tests and it was suggested that chemo or radiation wasn’t the best option but being on a healthier diet was the suggested option and taking her in for quarterly check ins to ensure the cancer wasn’t coming back.  Most people would run away from adopting a dog like her, but the few that know would understand that it would be an honor to be her forever family, as her foster mom  would agree too , as Sweet Pea is just a happy go lucky girl with a sweet demeanor and truly enjoys being around you and other dogs. She still has that pep in her step, loves the dog park, and enjoys a few good naps throughout the day.  If you'd like to be Sweet Pea's forever humans, please apply at https://www.muttsinneed.org/adoption-application.html  June 19, 2024, 7:02 pm

Story
Keely is around 5 years old and weighs 13 pounds. While she is sociable with other dogs, she is not confident around humans. She was rescued from a hoarding situation, is shy, and would require an experienced and/or very patient handler. We are positive she would evolve into a trusting pet with continued confidence building. She will require a calm, quiet, patient home willing to let her adjust at her own pace without asking her to engage socially with children or people she does not know. If this listing is still posted, we are still accepting applications. We do not do out-of-state adoptions. We do not hold dogs, please submit your application when you are ready to adopt. If you are interested in meeting any Poochmatch dog, please visit our website to complete an adoption application. It is in the ADOPTION folder at the top of our home page. Just fill in the blanks and SEND. We commonly receive multiple applications for a single dog. Nevertheless, only one applicant will be invited to meet a dog on Saturday at Petsmart in Yorba Linda between noon and 3 pm OR on a mutually agreeable day, time and place during the week. All adoption fees cover the mandatory and non-negotiable spay/neuter, rabies, microchip, microchip registration, full sets of core vaccinations (rabies and 1 set of distemper/parvo for adults, 4 for puppies) and deworming. Adoption fees vary based on age, breed, size and the costs incurred on the dog's behalf by us i.e. medical, behavioral training, etc.
