***MUST SUBMIT APPLICATION before we will respond to email or phone inquiries. Thank You for your cooperation***
Please read listings fully to the end before applying for one of our beloved rescues.
WE ARE NOT A SHELTER; WE ARE AN ALL-VOLUNTEER RESCUE WITH FULL-TIME JOBS.
Please do not contact us to look at a dog. We will contact you once we have reviewed your completed application if we think your home might be a good fit. A reference check, phone interview, and home visit will be completed before meeting an adoptable dog.
We work quickly. Please do not submit an application until you are ready to bring a new furry family member home. Expect your references to be contacted shortly after submitting your application. We adopt out to homes in WA state, but require that you are present for the meet and greet in Newcastle, WA.
Our adoption fee is non-negotiable. The adoption fee is due on the day of adoption in the form of a check, Zelle, or cash. We no longer accept PayPal because of the percentage they take & their fees but if the potential adopter is willing to pay the fees & charges we will accept PayPal.
Poor Peppermint was destined to be a breeding machine & live his life in a cage & just brought out to breed. But we stopped that from happening by bidding on him at an auction in Missouri & many others on this day along with some breeder releases. Living his life outside in the stinking heat day after day then in the freezing cold in winter time in a metal tin can of a shed was over. His life was instantly changing in that moment & only for the better. It’s soul destroying to think what these dogs were going to have to go through. He is one of the lucky ones. On this day we rescued a total of 15 breeding mums & dads & puppies who all they knew was to breed in a life of hell & then being sold to start the cycle all over again. Of course when we rescue these amazing souls they have had no veterinary care whatsoever & we have to start from scratch.
Now the real healing, love & devotion could begin & show Peppermint how he is supposed to be loved & adored in a loving forever home.
Peppermint was bought back to the WA state where he now is so happy to be here & can’t wait to find his new loving devoted forever home.
Peppermint is such a sweetheart of a boy & come along way in such a short amount of time. When we first rescued him, it was very clear that someone was rough with him & trust had to be built as he would originally try to run away & hide. He would try to be playful in his foster home by running up & grabbing hold of your pants or nip your bottom to get attention from his foster mum then take off. But she would call him & he would come & run back & forth. Now she calls him & he comes or she turns around & there he is. He still does not come to his foster dad but is not worried about him, he is just being cheeky with him.
For everything he has been through, he adapted quite quickly to his very devoted foster home. He went into his foster home where he knew nothing at all but was learning. All he knew was the life of being in a breeding environment. He had no clue to eat out of a bowl or what the food was he was being given. Peppermint picked up the routine in his foster home & now his personality has really began to shine. He would need time to adjust in his new home.
Peppermint adores being picked up & held & cuddled his foster mum said & he just wants to be loved & he loves them back. She said he really just wants to have fun with his foster siblings & be loved & fed.
The reality is, the foster homes are his real first experience at being in a home, with a tv, bedding he can snuggle up in, a roof over his head that’s not outside.
He adores comfy beds & big comfy blankets because again the reality is, this is something he did not get to experience ever until he was rescued.
This boy loves to play with anyone who will play with him. He is a very cheeky little guy & is still learning his puppy manners. He loves puppies too. He must go to a forever home with younger dogs & this mandatory to make him comfortable in his transition to his forever home.
Peppermint eats clean in his foster home, meaning raw fruits, vegetables, proteins, grains & supplements. At first he did not want to eat at all because the food they are fed is of the lowest quality imaginable. But once he understood what was going on he now devours his food.
He is now good with his baths & is now good being dried with the hairdryer.
He would still need work walking on his harness & leash as it’s all completely new to him.
He does not discriminate against breeds.
Peppermint rides well in the car & considering the only times we know of was when he was rescued & going to the vets with his foster family. We are looking for a crate free home for this little lad only. Peppermint as you can imagine spent the first part of his life in a caged environment. We are also looking for a forever home for Peppermint where someone is home during the day or he can go with his people wherever possibly he can go with them.
Peppermint is looking for a forever home who will cherish him & love him as he should be loved & be patient with him & never give up on him.
Peppermint has been around many breeds of dogs all shapes & sizes in the rescue & in his foster home & he is currently with other dogs & enjoys their company. Please do not apply saying your neighbors have a dog or family members or you will take him to places where there are other dogs. That will not work, another dog or dogs is mandatory along with a fully fenced backyard.
Peppermint is roughly 7 months old. He is a miniture poodle, what he is mixed with we are not sure. Male, he is roughly 9.8 lbs & he is neutered by laser by our wonderful vets. He is microchipped & had some dermatitis when we rescued him & is up to date on all his shots including DHLPP, Bordatella, rabies & dewormed.
We have spent & will continue to spend far more on Peppermint with purchasing him from an auction. Bringing him to WA with his travel costs, to WA. All of his medical care in WA & Omaha, including, neutered by laser, shots, vet visits etc & bringing him to WA then his adoption fee comes close to covering. His adoption fee does not even come close to covering what we have spent on Peppermint.
Peppermint has not been around cats since being in the rescue, but it’s always up to the new family to be responsible with their animals together & we have had him around small children & he does wonderful but we do not recommend small children nor cats & it’s always up to the family to be responsible with their children & cats.
We were not there when Peppermint was conceived so we do not know who her parents were & it’s always up to the new potential family to look at the pictures & decide what they think his breed is.
As with all of our rescues & Peppermint’s friends he will need work on potty training & training, so this should be something the new family would be willing to work on & commit to. Please do not submit an application if you are not willing to commit to one of our rescues care for their whole life & that includes if they need training. Please do not email us asking is Peppermint potty trained or available, nor do we ship dogs anywhere as we will not respond.
We would never say anyone of our rescues are potty trained. Our rescues need homes where the people are understanding of their past & what they have been through & what they will need in their daily lives & not willing to give up on them & if they do need training in their new home will in fact take them to training & not just say they will when applying.
Please only submit an application if you are truly interested in adopting Peppermint & going through our process and have read his listing fully to the end & are wanting to adopt. If you are not responsive to our calls, emails or your references do not respond we will move on. Or you waste this rescues time, will remove your application from our system. You must be willing to go through our screening process which includes your references being checked, a phone interview & a virtual home visit via WebEx or Zoom due to covid & followed by a meet & greet & if it’s a good fit, up to our discretion. We will only be accepting applications for Peppermint who understands his needs & that meet all the requirements for this special sweet little lad. Once we find the right home for each little soul we work fast, within days so the dogs can go to their forever homes in quite a timely manner. We do not hold onto dogs for people as our goal is to save lives & please do not submit an application if you are not ready to adopt. We also cannot respond to every application unfortunately.
Peppermint has an adoption fee of $1585 & is ready for his truly loving forever home & compassion & understanding of what she has been through.
