Story
Meet little Bijou! He is an 8 yr old Shih Tzu mix who is ready for a fresh start after arriving at the shelter as a stray, very thin and super hungry. This little boy is about 9lbs and full of fun! Bijou loves to play with toys, and looks forward to each new stuffie with such enthusiasm. Bijou does not want to live with other pets, and loves all the attention to be on just him. He promises to keep you entertained. Bijou is looking for a new home with out other pets, and if their are children in the home, they should be teens and up. Bijou likes new people, but prefers if you can let him come up to you instead of reaching out and trying to pet him right away. If you are interested in adopting Bijou, please head to our website worcesterarl.org and fill out the Dog Adoption Inquiry listed under his photo to request a meet with him. All adoptions are by appointment, thank you!

Story
MEET LILO! Want a lifetime of walkies? So does Lilo! He is always up for a long stroll around the block with his favorite people! It can take a little while to become one of Lilo`s best buds, he can be very fearful when meeting strangers and is a little selective about who he hangs out with. Fortunately, once he warms up, he`s all yours! Lilo likes taking his walks in any environment but somewhere with lower traffic would be best. He`d also prefer a completely child free home with not as many visitors as his new family will have to make sure to give him a slow introduction anytime he meets new people. This boy is truly lovely and if you think your home is right for him, feel free to inquire about him at our Boston location.** PLEASE NOTE - Lilo requires multiple meets before going hom. Lilo is currently up to date on all vaccinations, has been neutered, microchipped, and seen by our vet team.For more information on Lilo or any other animal currently residing at the Animal Rescue League of Boston, please call us at 617-426-9170. We welcome adopters from NH, RI, CT, and NY. However, we will be unable to facilitate same day adoptions due to state regulated paperwork requirements.

Story
Romeo and Juliet were both street dogs, traveling everywhere together, looking for food and love. They were finally picked up by animal control in Georgia where they remained on a stray hold until they could be released. Animal control soon realized that Juliet was pregnant by Romeo so they called us to see if we could get them out of there before she gave birth. We had them immediately transported here to Tennessee and two weeks later she gave birth to 7 puppies. Sadly one was stillborn but the remaining 6 are all healthy happy babies who have all been adopted. Now it's Romeo's turn. He is crate trained, fully vaccinated, microchipped, neutered and heart worm negative. Romeo is extremely lovable. He is excellent with my 3 year old granddaughter and as you can see in the photo, fine with cats. Wouldn't you love to give him a loving and forever home! PLEASE NOTE THAT WE ARE LOCATED IN TENNESSEE AND YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO MEET OUR PETS PRIOR TO ADOPTION ADOPTION FEE $700

Not good with kids, Good with dogs,
Story
Snickers CAS is currently in RI and looking for a 'furever' home! Meet Snickers, a 7-month-old bundle of joy who is a mix of Shih Tzu and Lhasa Apso. This playful pup is looking for a special home where he can thrive. Snickers requires a home with WOMEN only and no kids, as he prefers the company of adult women. While he enjoys meeting all people, he doesn't want men in the home. Snickers would love to have another dog to play with, so a home with a furry friend would be ideal for him. However, he is not compatible with cats, as he has a tendency to chase them. If you're looking for a loyal companion who will keep you entertained with his playful antics, Snickers might be the perfect match for you. If you are interested in adopting this dog please complete the adoption application at www.rhodehomerescue.org/adoption-form to become a pre-approved adopter. If you were already approved through Rhode Home Rescue within the last 6 months, contact us today! Be sure to check our Facebook page "Rhode Home Rescue" for details on upcoming events and other announcements.
