Story
URGENT SITUATION! PLEASE MEET SAMI! Sami is a sweet senior at 9 years old. She is urgently looking for a long term foster family which may lead to an eventual adoption for the right family. Sami's life is up in the air & she needs a special family to give her a home until it gets figured out. Sami's mom has been living in a medical facility, hoping to one day be reunited with Sami, but that is looking like a very long way off, if ever. Because of this, Sami's needs are being financially taken care of by mom. Sami is true couch potato She does not like walks or spending too much time outdoors. She goes out to do her business & heads back inside to her couch. It is a MUST that Sami be allowed on the couch as this has always been her favorite spot. Sami also loves splashing in the kiddie pool. Please see how wonderful Sami is in the attached videos: https://youtu.be/tk82T1Be0Vc https://youtu.be/zRU3Ut2kpHo Sami loves people & is very affectionate. Sami must be the only animal. If you can offer sweet Sami a place to stay with a couch & lots of love, please email us asap at fanabalasanctuary@gmail.com. * INDOOR HOME ONLY.

Story
Please contact the Dog Team (dogcoordinator@graspinc.org) for more information about this pet.DOB: 11/1/21  This is Hollie, she's a goofy pitbull terrier female. Hollie is proud to announce that she successfully completed heartworm treatment, and this healthy baby is ready to meet her family! This precious girl has been working hard the last 4 months while recovering: she is crate trained, house broken, groom loving (seriously, she runs into the bathtub), and obedient to commands (like sit, down, stay, paw, wait, OK, and no). Hollie loves training so much that she grasped the basics of loose leash walking on her 3rd ever walk.   Hollie is a confident explorer, and loves many activities, such as breakfast, walking, fetch, snack time, tug, dog play time, dinner, going for a drive, cuddle time, and especially any treat rewarding activity. It’s true, Hollie loves food. Her usually focused face melts during head scratches, and she loves to snuggle up under a blanket.    Hollie’s ideal home will have: assertive human leadership (no first time adopters please), no children, no small animals (including rodents, cats, small dogs), and  explore/try new things with her human.    Her adoption fee is $350    July 15, 2024, 2:01 pm

Please put your hands (and paws) together for our newest addition, Bowie! 👩🏻‍🎤 This rockstar is only 1 year old, meaning he’s far from his peak! The pawparazzi has labeled him as a Pitt Mix, but all we know for sure is that this boy is handsome! Life on the road can be tough but this boy makes show biz look easy! He is always ready for some play time or an adventure! Bowie can be very eager to engage with his fans so he would do best in home without young children. We only picked up this superstar yesterday, but he’s already stolen the spotlight and our hearts! He’s a real-life Diamond Dog!

Check out what she has to say about her new life! "I really like it here with my foster moms, so far I have learned: ✨I love to watch tv! My favorite shows are the office, true crime, scary, and action movies! ✨My mom says I’m a super chewer, not sure what that means but sounds to me like I’m a super hero of some kind! 💪 ✨Just because I have 3 legs doesn’t mean it slows me down! I’m the fastest dog in the wild Wild West 🏃‍♀️💨! I love to run in the yard, get zoomies in the house, and slide on the wood floors! Sometimes I do bump into things, but foster mom says bumper cars are fun! ✨I’m a fast learner 📚✏️🎓! My trainer even says so! I’m working hard on my manners and doing really good! ✨I’m potty and crate trained! ✨I love HUMANS!! I mean they are kinda goofy looking but I love snuggling, playing, being pet, and spending time with them! My foster mom calls me her shadow! I can even hug them if they let me!! Hugs and Licks, Sunny Bunny 🐰❤️" If your interested in adopting this girl, or just want to learn more information, check out our website!

I adopted Josie a year ago from Verona Animal Shelter. The first time my daughter and I met Josie, she went around the room to greet the volunteers and us. She is a very happy girl whose tail wags non-stop. She loves to play, cuddle, run zoomies, give kisses, and go for walks. She is a very sweet girl. Unfortunately, she does get jealous of my other dog and would do better in an only pet situation.

Meet Clyde! Clyde is around 1.5 years old and a mixed breed pup. He came into our care after being found as a stray emaciated. After being in a foster home for a few months, Clyde is back to his ideal weight and can focus on becoming the perfect boy for his future family! While we have had Clyde, we've discovered that he has some stranger danger, particularly towards men. This pup is a ladies man through and through! Clyde has started training to help him get over those nerves! He loves his training sessions, and he is making good progress in being more confident! He knows this will bring him one step closer to adoption! Clyde does great with his two foster pup brothers and loves to go out for walks! He's also always up for a snuggle or a nap! Clyde is house trained, and super food motivated; he loves his treats! Clyde can't wait to show how far he's come to anyone interested in meeting him!

Story
Meet Merlin! Merlin is currently looking for a foster or adopter to call his own! Merlin is estimated to be around 3 years old and weighs about 45 lbs! This sweet faced little guy was pulled from the local shelter as he needed a place to decompress! By the time he got to our facility, we noticed that Merlin was a lot more comfortable when he had his pup friends around him! He has taken liking to some of our other rescue friends he lives with and loves to snuggle and play with them! Being with a buddy definitely helps Merlin out! He can be a little nervous when it comes to meeting new people, and tends to be a shy boy. But add another dog into the mix and you see a completely new side of him! Merlin has yet to meet a dog he doesn’t like! He’ll play bow, bounce around, and loves to play chase! We have a feeling once he’s in a house of his own his confidence will rise and he’ll be more comfortable! Interested in meeting Merlin? Please contact us through email! petstophererescue@gmail.com

These pups are in Rochester, New York too!
