Story
Please contact Sandra (sandralamb@comcast.net) for more information about this pet. Adoption Donation   $   299                Located:    NE     (Transportation costs included to the Northeast , plz ask for more details )    Age: approx      11.  years old     Weight:   lbs Greta was found abandoned in the woods in MS. She is a sweet senior girl, who loves to sleep under blankets. She loves everyone she meets and loves the company of other dogs. She does have a skin issue that is clearing up, with proper care and diet I am sure that will resolve. She does not like to be alone so a home with someone who can spoil her and love her most of the day would be best for this girl!  If you are interested in adopting me, please fill out an application on our website  www.fohari.org  and email my foster parent for more information:  sandralamb@comcast.net Please verify the location and readiness of this dog with us.  Because we save lives from various locations through out the United States, some dogs may not be in New England yet, nor ready for immediate adoption.     Our Adoption Process:   Go to our website and select the animal you are interested in. ALL animals are in foster homes as we do NOT have a  shelter where you can visit. Some animals are in foster care in New England, and some are located in other states. If the initials following the animals name are a state, then that is the state where the animal is located. If initials are not a state, then those are the initials of the foster home outside of New England and you will not be able to meet the animal ahead of time. Complete our online application You will be contacted by phone or email by the foster parent  or a member of our adoption team and will have the opportunity to find out more about the animal, and ask any questions that you have to ensure the animal is a good fit for your household. If the animal is local, you can meet the animal, but you would not be able to take the dog home until you are approved to adopt. If you feel comfortable that the animal is a good fit for your home, at this point, you would submit a sum of $200 as a partial payment of the adoption fee as we process your application. From our end, we will check references and schedule a home visit. If you are not approved to adopt, any payment sent to us would be promptly returned in full. At this point, we will remove the animal from our adoption sites and hold the animal for you while we check your references. If you live in an apartment, or a condo, we will need to verify permission to own the animal from your landlord or condo board. Please let your vet’s office and references know we will be contacting them. If your  references are positive, we will schedule a home visit by a volunteer. Please try to accommodate the home visit volunteer as most  have busy schedules. Delays in the visit will result in a delay in the adoption. Once you are approved, you will receive an e-mail with your  adoption contract attached. This e-mail will have details about pick up, the balance of the adoption fee that is owed, etc. Please email your signed & witnessed contract and pay your adoption fee in full, and for any animals located out of state, you will be contacted for details about transport to New England. Once you have paid your adoption fee in full and sent back your contract, you can make arrangement to pick up your animal from the foster home or from transport depending on where the animal is located. Please bring a harness, collar, ID tag and leash when you are picking up the dog unless otherwise instructed by the foster parent. Our extensive approval process is intended to ensure the best fit between our animals and adopters. Friends of Homeless Animals (FOHA) reserves the right to deny any adoption application with or without disclosure of cause. Your adoption fee helps to cover the cost of all age appropriate vetting and transportation. FOHARI.ORG makes no explicit or implicit guarantees in reference to the health, temperament and/or the breed of the animal. The animal is adopted ‘as is’, and the adopter assumes all responsibility for treatment of any and all existing conditions or any other conditions of physical or temperament changes that may occur. FOHARI.ORG will provide the animal with the basic vaccines, heart worm test and sterilization of dogs and cats before adoption if the age and current health of the animal permits. While FOHARI.ORG makes every effort to place only healthy animals, FOHARI.ORG cannot guarantee the health of any animal, and shall not be held responsible for any medical expenses that may be incurred.

Story
       Adoption Donation   $  599     Located:  RI    Age: approx   4  years old Weight: 25 lbs              Jaxson is a very affectionate and loving boy who attaches very strongly to his person, he loves to cuddle and would love to sleep in bed with his person.   Jaxson likes toys, he will go and get them and bring them to you. He is a quiet and easy to care for boy who really just wants to hang out with his person,    Jaxson has always loved other dogs, but recently he began resource guarding with the dog in his house, and it was decided that he would be better off as the only dog, since he really just wants to snuggle with his person anyway!     We are looking for a home for Jaxson with someone who is around a lot because he just wants to be on a lap snoozing and giving kisses. Jaxson will make a wonderful and loyal member of the family.        If you are interested in adopting me, please fill out an application on our website  www.fohari.org  and email my foster parent for more information:   Mariaeftimiades@yahoo.comhow  Please verify the location and readiness of this dog with us.  Because we save lives from various locations through out the United States, some dogs may not be in New England yet, nor ready for immediate adoption.     Our Adoption Process:   Go to our website and select the animal you are interested in.
