Story
Are you looking at my ears? WHAT MY FOSTER SAYS ABOUT ME: Hello! My name is Shiva, and I'm happy to be here and tell you a bit about me. I was brought into another welfare organization in Washington, DC, in July 2023 by nice animal control officers after I was found wandering the streets. I was underweight and had a skin condition, but the vets there nursed me back to health. I'm now a healthy 45 pounds, very energetic, and getting used to trusting humans again. I have been in foster and have grown a lot in my time out of the shelter. I am still quite shy at first, but after getting to know people, I really open up and show my very loving, playful and goofy personality. While I am an adult lady, I have a lot of energy, am silly and playful at times, and LOVE the outdoors. I light up on walks, especially in the park, and love running around and being playful with my foster mom. If you have a nice yard that I can run and play in, I would love that! I also love nice long walks where you can be patient with me as I sniff (a lot). Because of my past, I am scared by sudden, loud noises, so I would really prefer a quiet home, perhaps outside the city so there are fewer sirens and other loud noises. I may be ok with other dogs, but my foster mom thinks I might prefer to be queen of my own castle. I currently live with two adult male cats. My energy and playfulness is not always well-received by them, but I don't show any aggression towards them, just playfulness. A home with cats may work for me, but my new family would have to be willing to go slow with introductions. I am a true love, who is looking for a soft place to land after a rough go of it. Once you earn my trust, I will be very loving and loyal. I'd love to be with a forever family that loves me for all I am and treats me like a princess. ATTRIBUTES: Shiva has lived in foster with cats and done well. -------------- Laila's Legacy Animal Rescue does not guarantee that any dog is housebroken nor crate trained.

Story
Pisa is looking for their forever home! WHAT MY FOSTER SAYS: A mix of absolute perfection, you can't help but fall in love with Pisa's smooshy face and adorably clumsy nature. She's been known to bonk her nose a few times when excitedly turning around after you before shaking it off and continuing to follow after you. Part of her excitement with life is that she loooves to sniff. She loves old and new smells, but will plop onto the ground when she's decidedly satisfied with her sniffing accomplishments. The only exception to her sniffing is seemingly other dogs and people, of which she has little care for on walks. She knows she's your main girl and that's enough for her to ignore any passerby of human or animal kind. In the home, she may be a little hesitant at first, but quickly warms to invite pets and affection. If you want a dirty dog that tracks mud through your house, Pisa may not be your girl. She is not a fan of wet grass or mud, and will only stoop down to touching wet grass if there is business that needs attending to. BEWARE this wrinkly-faced monster will... continuously lick your fingers. That's right, day or night if she wants attention, to play, or just wants to show you just how much she loves you, she can, and will, take it out on your fingers. She also will, and has, quickly picked up new routines like using staircases, waiting for her food, and being the sweetest and most well-behaved girl you'll ever meet. ATTRIBUTES: Pisa does well with other dogs. -------------- Laila's Legacy Animal Rescue does not guarantee that any dog is housebroken nor crate trained.

PLEASE READ: If you are interested in meeting and/or adopting, please apply online at www.catdogfriendrescue.com. Please do NOT call or send inquiries via Adopt A Pet or PetFinder as we are a small rescue and cannot handle a large influx of inquiries and phone calls. You can email us at acatsfriendinc@gmail.com if you have questions, but if you would like to be considered for adoption, you must fill out an application. Please note if you are applying for a kitten under six months of age, you must have another friendly kitty in the home or adopt another kitten. Additionally, unless otherwise indicted that this animal is a purebred, all of our animals are rescues and the "breed" selection is a best guess based on their apperance as we have no way of knowing their specific breeds.  Out of state adoptions (outside Virginia/DC/Maryland) do require three years of excellent past or current veterinary references. We look forward to hearing from you!  Adoption Fee includes spay/neuter and microchip insertion. ##1972866##

Story
Rebel is a 6-year-old male Shar-Pei/English Bulldog mix with a heart full of love. He's looking for a new forever home in Hagerstown, Maryland, following the passing of his beloved owner. Rebel is a loyal and affectionate companion who would thrive in a calm and understanding environment. Key Information: Age: 6 years old Breed: Shar-Pei/English Bulldog mix Neutered: Not neutered Compatibility: Rebel is best suited for a home without small kids or male dogs, as he had a rough experience with young children in his previous home. Cat Alert: Rebel may chase cats if he spots them in the yard, so a cat-free environment would be ideal. Health: Up to date on shots and house trained. Rebel's life has seen some recent changes, with the loss of his owner and his current caregiver preparing for hip and knee surgeries. This sweet boy is in need of a loving family to provide the stability and care he deserves. If you're interested in opening your heart and home to Rebel, please reach out to Danny at 240-675-9090. Your kindness could make all the difference in Rebel's world. Let's find this loyal companion the safe and loving forever home he deserves. ***Disclaimer*** Unfortunately, there are not enough rooms at the inn to admit every dog that needs a furever home. But, we still want to help those dogs (and cats) on their journey! By courtesy posting, AAHA is offering our website/network as an additional resource to help an owner or shelter gain additional exposure for the dog they are trying to place. AAHA has not met nor evaluated the dog (or cat) we are courtesy posting. AAHA makes no representation about courtesy posted pets including the health and temperament and accepts no liability in this exchange. Arrangements for adoptions are made between the caretaker of the pet and the potential adopter.May 28, 2024, 11:30 am

Story
We have a special boy to introduce to the families and couples out there wanting a truly special older pup that is totally trained and waiting to love you to pieces. True Blue Toby is a 10 month old Boxer mix puppy that was found as a stray and not in the best shape.  In fact he looked terrible and we felt so bad for this boy to have suffered for so many months.  Once he came to our care we got to work on clearing up hair loss and getting him healthy from those pesky intestinal worms and putting good weight on him.  Gosh Toby is the best boy with a wonderful personality that embraces everyone with love and the anticipation to become steadfast friends.  Shy at first, this boy has blossomed and is Mr. Outgoing in every way.  He just wants to hang out with his humans and love them with full gratitude for making him such a healthy boy.  Housebroken, crate trained and wonderful with other dogs and cats, he is the truly total package if you are looking for a medium sized dog.  He is going to be a 50 pound adult and what a handsome Boxer mix boy he is turning in to.   Email us at Critter Cavalry Rescue :   ccrnewengland@gmail.com   We know will be glad you considered this boy as your very own. PLEASE NOTE:  Our dogs are transported from Tennessee to meeting places in the states where we have posted.  Further information about us is given on our Adopt-A-Pet site.  The adoption fees vary and will be provided as well as noted on the application you receive.  Contact us at 615-661-5333 or ccrnewengland@gmail.comMay 28, 2024, 12:37 pm

Story
Sweet Rosie girl was found as a stray. The woman who found her tried desperately to find her owner but to no avail. We believe she was dumped, as it is very common here in the south. The woman brought her here to the rescue and she is doing extremely well with all the dogs and puppies and even like the cats and the children who visit. We believe she is approximately 5 months. She has been spayed, vaccinated, microchipped and she is also crate trained. She is full of energy and would do very well with a house full of kids! She appears to be a Boxer/Hound mix of some sort, pretty much a Super Mutt! Wouldn't you love to add her to your family? She will be ready for transport by the middle of May PLEASE NOTE THAT WE ARE LOCATED IN TENNESSEE AND YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO MEET OUR PETS PRIOR TO ADOPTION! ADOPTION FEE $500
