ADOPTED!

Starla - Simi Valley, CA ADOPTED!!!!
Noodle - Davis, CA  ADOPTED!!!

This beautiful purebred Havanese girl is Starla.  Starla is 14 yrs old, weighs 15 lbs, is good with small dogs and all kids and is housebroken.

Starla was born April 2005 and is purebred Havanese. She is elderly but she doesn't act or look her age! She gets along with other dogs in the home, is friendly, affectionate, and loves to go on walks. She wants to be with you and next to you. She needs access to outside for her potty needs.

Sadly, Starla was used as a breeder dog and was given up when they needed her no longer. She was adopted then they gave her up for unknown reasons. The 3rd home surrendered her to us as they did not have time for her. As a result of this bouncing around, she has anxiety. Therefore, she needs a stable home environment. Sadly she was adopted from us and her adopter had health issues and could not care for her any longer. So sweet Starla was bounced around yet again. She deserves a furever home where she can live out the rest of her life after having such a tumultous life.  

We only adopt within 40 miles of Simi Valley as part of our process is a homecheck. Please email staff@arvsimi.org if interested in learning more about Starla!

Meet Noodle!!  Look at this little guy.  Noodle is a 12 yr old male Dachshund who weighs in at 14 lbs. Noodle is good with other animals, kids, and is housebroken.

Noodle is a sweet, happy, easy-going grandpa who is great with dogs and all people. He was owner surrendered due to owner's deployment over seas. He doesn’t ask for much other than a warm bed and someone to take him on walks / give him attention and love. Good with dogs, cats, kids. Neutered, vaccinated, vetted, microchipped, utd on monthly preventatives.  For more information on Noodle visit https://www.heartsforpawsrescue.com/ .

Yogi - Los Angeles, CA  ADOPTED!! 

He looks like a stuffed animal!  Meet Yogi!  Yogi is a 14 yr old, 7 lb, male Pomeranian.  He is good with other dogs, kids of all ages, and is housebroken.

This precious little living teddy bear was dumped at the shelter for being old. It still baffles us how people can’t see the amazing gift that senior dogs are and would betray their years of loyalty and love like that. Yogi is as sweet, cuddly and kissy as you would ever dream. He will need a nice calm home with adults or older children. He very much prefers the company of humans and will sometimes bark when left alone. Though that may improve with time he would prefer an adopter that is home a lot or can take him with them when they leave. Yogi loves people and other dogs, he has a great temperament and for that reason would be a fun buddy to go on all your errands with you. He loves car rides and sits patiently in traffic! Yogi is in beginning stage renal failure so he is on special but inexpensive food. We’ve also recently discovered that he has mouth cancer, and at his advanced age the vet recommended not putting him through surgery or additional lifesaving measures that could affect the quality of his time left. He could have 2 months left or a year, we aren’t sure. 

For more information on Yogi you can email erin@muchlove.org and visit http://www.muchlove.org/

Leo - Sacramento, CA   ADOPTED!!

Meet Leo!!  Leo is a 15 yr old neutered male Min Pin who weighs in at 12-14 lbs.  Leo is great with small dogs and due to his age should go to a home with kids over 12 years.

Leo was brought into IMPS from a horrible hoarding situation. He was one of 8 dogs that had been living in a dark shed, cramped in a small cage, with little or no human contact. N ow he is free and happy living in his foster home!!

 

Like lots of Seniors, Leo has lost his hearing. But that does not stop him from being an independent min pin. He loves to take walks and run around the back yard with the rest of his foster friends. Leo is typically good about going outside to potty but does make mistakes sometimes.

 

He is a very sweet boy with lots of life in him; he's looking for someone to love him in his golden years. Leo is in the Senior Special Program, which means that 50% of his routine medical bills will be paid for the remainder of his life.

 

From Leo: "My foster mom says age is just a number for me! I LOVE going on walks, and the vet says, I'm in great health, other than a heart murmur that I seem to be handling great with medications. I like playing with toys and I'm so happy to no longer be cooped up in a dark and dirty shed! 

 

If you feel that you can love our Leo forever, then please contact Tiffany at tiffany.boyland@gmail.com To see a Video of Leo, please see: https://youtu.be/dMf_OoUOx28

 

Note: Leo is located in Sacramento, CA, and we will not fly this boy unless he is in cabin with adopter.  Please Contact: Adrian at Hope4MinPins@hotmail.com

Daisy - Fullerton, CA  FOSPICE FOUND

This beautiful senior is Daisy.  She is a 16 yr old female spayed Chihuahua who weighs 10 lbs.  She is good with other animals, gentle kids and is piddle pad trained!

Daisy came to us from a local shelter. She has severe dental disease and a 5/6 heart murmur. Due to her heart murmur we are unable to completely treat the dental disease but will do our best to clean her teeth enough to make her comfortable.

 

Due to her teeth, Daisy eats wet food only, and she lets you know when she is hungry! She is a sassy girl who likes to be around people. She does well in the car, and walks pretty good on a leash. She has no obvious joint issues or other age related issues and is pretty spunky for her age.

 

She is very sweet, but does not like to have her mouth touched, which is understandable given the state of her teeth. She has been fine with kids she has met but kids will need to understand that they shouldn’t not touch her face. Barks of Love will cover Daisy’s medical for life if treated by our vet in Anaheim. We would prefer Daisy to be adopted within Orange County. Please email adopt@barksoflove.org for more information on this sweet girl!  You can also visit: www.barksoflove.org

Spitfire Airplane - Pittsburg, CA ADOPTED!!

Look at this armful of love!  This is Spitfire Airplane.  She is a 10 yr old, 15 lb, female spayed Rat Terrier mix who is great with kids, other animals, and is housebroken!!!

From her shelter:  Spitfire joins us from San Jose Animal Care Center via San Jose Animal Advocates where she was treated by Tails of a Shelter Vet.

 

Spitfire was not spayed by her previous owner and due to this developed multiple mammary masses. One of these was cancerous (intraductal carcinoma) and will be life-limiting. Our vet guesstimates that she has about one year left.

 

She is now spayed, microchipped, vaccinated and has had labwork and a dental cleaning. She is on prednisone daily to slow the cancer and we will provide this for the rest of her life to any adopter. If an adopter is local, we will also provide quarterly chest x-rays at our veterinarian to check for metastasis to her lungs (which is what happens with mammary/breast cancer in dogs).

 

She is looking for a compassionate adopter who is willing to take on the heartbreak because they know that SHE deserves a forever home and a beautiful sunset. She would love someone who would make and help her complete a bucket list with weekly puppacinos and lots of snacks.

 

She is a good girl who is leash, house and crate trained and does well with other dogs. We think she is okay with cats (there are some at our vet clinic but none in her foster home) so we can do more testing for a potential adopter if needed. She loves going in the car and loves to snuggle. She loves all people including the teacup variety.

She is adoptable to approved homes ANYWHERE and thanks to our friends at Delta Air Lines and their all-volunteer DART transport team, she can be flown in-cabin to other locations. There is no adoption fee for an approved home.

For more information, please email: Beourpet@gmail.com.

Iris - Los Angeles, California ADOPTED!!!

This sweet and deserving girl is Iris!  She is an 8 year old, 14 lb female spayed Chihuahua/Terrier mix.  She is housebroken, fine with other animals, and great with kids!  Iris is a calm and outgoing lady who is looking for a very special home.

We pulled her from the shelter where she had been sitting for a month with a huge mass on her liver. It was pushing her internal organs out of place and her abdomen was very distended and uncomfortable. A skilled surgeon removed the mass and she is recovering nicely. She has more energy and is clearly so much more comfortable now.

 

Unfortunately the biopsy results showed that her mass was a malignant sarcoma that doesn't respond well to chemo, so we are not going to subject her to that treatment. They said that her cancer will likely return and her lifespan will be cut short (maybe a year, but nobody knows for sure).

 

For now she is happy and ready to give and receive love from a family! She is great with other dogs and tolerant of cats, although she's not fond of them. She is happy to meet and spend time with kids and adults alike. She is housebroken and will use pee pads when her person isn't available to take her outside. She enjoys her walks, enjoys her meals and enjoys getting affection.

 

She is looking for an adopter (or foster) willing to make whatever time she has left the best it can be by filling it with good food, lots of happy activities and most of all love.  For more information please email: foster@muchlove.org or info@muchlove.org.  Her rescue would like Iris to stay within 50 miles of her rescue but other inquiries are welcome. 

Jazzy - Napa, CA  FOSPICE FOUND!!

Meet adorable Jazzy!!! She is a 13 yr old, 8 lb, female spayed Shih Tsu!!  This adorable girl is housebroken, good with all animals, and fine with older children who are respectful of her age and medical status!!

From Jazzy:  Hi, my name is Jazzy! I'm a darling little senior girl with soulful brown eyes and a calm temperament. I like to trot around outside, but don't need long walks.

 

I'm being fostered at night, and get along well with the big dog and cat in the house. I am looking for my happy ending-a loving home and a warm lap to curl up on.

 

I am on medication for a heart condition, but am good about taking my pills and will reward you with lots of tail wags and snuggles. Come to the shelter and ask to meet me, your new best friend!

 

Medical: Jazzy has a severe heart murmur.  She was in heart failure when her rescue got her but she is out of failure now though her heart condition still requires that she has to be on 3 medications. Any potential adopter (or foster) would need to be aware that she will need rechecks every 3-6 months to monitor her heart. With good preventative care, our vet said she can still have a good quality of life for another 2 years. She also has a 3/4 dental disease but with the heart condition, it would be risky to put her under sedation. She is currently being fostered at night but then she comes back to the shelter during business hours. We get interest in her but her condition then scares them away so we are hoping for a good fospice home!

If a person is offering fospice, than we prefer the foster be within Napa County jurisdiction. Adopters from outside of Napa are fine.  For more information call: 707-253-6179

Buddha - Summit, NJ  FOSPICE FOUND!!

Look at this distinguished gentleman!  Buddha is an approximately 11 yr old neutered male Chocolate Lab.  He weighs 60 lbs, is great with other animals, kids, and is housebroken.

Buddha was found wandering the streets of College Station, Texas. A kind stranger picked him up and brought him to Aggieland Humane Society in Bryan, Texas and now he's in New Jersey! He is 10-12 years old. Buddha is a quiet and aloof sweetheart. He enjoys being pet, comfy beds and an occasional roll in the grass. Despite his age, he’s quick to learn and does not hesitate to let you know when he wants something. Buddha is fully potty trained and he is not a chewer. He’s gentle with everyone, and he gets along with other dogs. He is also very independent. He’d love a home with no steps and lots of soft places to lay down.

 

Buddha is a special needs senior. He was recently diagnosed with diabetes and he has to get insulin injections daily and he will need to have his blood sugar tested regularly. Buddha does have his own glucometer so his new owner can test his blood sugar at home. Buddha has some lumps and bumps on him but they are benign lipomas. Buddha may be lumpy on the outside, but he is the biggest softy on the inside. Please consider giving this boy a forever home.

Munchkin is currently being treated for some skin issues & hair loss, but we're sure he will be good as new in a short time. He is a little on the shy side, but he is fine with other dogs.

Attention Husky lovers!!  What a face!!  Nonamee is a 6/7 yr old neutered male Husky/Malamute mix who weighs 65 lbs.

 

Nonamee was surrendered to a local animal shelter when his owner could no longer afford to take care of him. He is a 6-7 year old Husky mix, weighing 65 pounds, with a wonderful temperament. He is gentle, kind, and very friendly. Nonamee has weakness in his hips and back legs. We have been giving him cosequin supplements and he is sleeping on a bed on top of his Kuranda bed. It seems to be helping a bit. He appears to be housebroken & he gets along with other dogs, too. Nonamee is a dog who would just be happy to lay by your side, providing companionship & quiet company. He needs a safe place to go now that he's out of the shelter.

UPDATE:  Sadly, Nonamee was diagnosed with cancer.  Further details are available from his rescue but he is a candidate for fospice care and just needs a happy place to stay comfortable for however long he has left.  

 

Do you have a loving forever home where Nonamee can spend the rest of his days? If you would like to meet this sweet, gentle boy please fill out an application at https://northstarpets.org and be sure to mention his name!

Karlee is a beautiful 11-year-old Sheltie/Cocker Spaniel mix while Makani is a handsome 8-year-old white German Shepherd. These sweet senior dogs must be adopted together - they have lost their family & their home & we feel that they need each other for comfort.

 

Karlee & Makani are now in a wonderful foster home. Here's what foster mom has told us about them: "These 2 are ridiculously sweet. They will follow you everywhere - except up or down stairs. They love treats and a soft bed. They had no interest in going in my crates to sleep but they slept through the night on their beds. They are great on a leash but they also like exploring the yard. They are quiet and calm. Karlee follows my husband while Makani follows me. They get along well my dog and cats. When I walked in the door from work they both were so excited, they barked! They are usually so quiet! It was cute! So far so good with these two.

Ravioli - Baltimore, MD  ADOPTED!!

Who doesn't love a Ravioli?? 

Ravioli is a young, neutered male cat who was rescued as a stray in an industrial area of South Baltimore. He had a rough time of it out on the streets, but he's now settling into a foster home and learning how to be a well-loved pet again!

 

He's a bit on the timid side, but is easily coaxed out for petting and he loves sitting in your lap. He's also VERY playful and loves his toys!

 

Ravioli tested positive for both feline leukemia (FeLV) and feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV). Because of the FeLV, which can be transmitted somewhat easily to other cats, he needs to be the only feline in the home (or to live with other FeLV+ cats). Neither virus can be transmitted to humans or other animals. Ravioli needs no special care or medication, just a dedicated owner who will take great care of him. Some cats with feline leukemia live only a year or two with the virus, but some live five, six years or longer, and Ravioli has lots of love to give!  It is not his fault he is sick and he deserves a wonderful home!!

Ravioli is available for adoption within 200 miles of Baltimore.  For more information please email: eharty@gmail.com .

Ozzie - Wilmington, DE  ADOPTED!!!

This handsome fella is Ozzie!  He is an 8 yr old, 12 lb neutered male cat.  Ozzie needs a foster home ASAP. 

Sweet Ozzie was adopted from Forgotten Cats in 2012. He has spent the last 8 years by Everly’s side. Ozzie had been her loyal companion for the last 8 years but sadly she saw his health and her health deteriorating and knew she couldn’t provide him the kind of care he needed. Everly was faced with a tough decision. Out of her love and what she felt was best for Ozzie, she contacted Forgotten Cats and asked us to take him back, give him the medical care he needed, and place him in a new loving home.

 

At first, Ozzie was sad and so confused. Where was Everly? But, he is adjusting and we are beginning to see his sweet and quirky personality. Why is he special needs?  Ozzie is diabetic. He needs a foster or adopter who is committed to providing Ozzie with his prescription diet and insulin shots two times per day. Forgotten Cats will provide the foster with the prescription diet and insulin. Who can lend a paw? Ozzie is a sweet boy and he deserves to be in a home where he is loved and cherished. If you can foster Ozzie, please fill out a foster form at www.forgottencats.org/foster-homes.php. Interested in adopting? You can fill out an adoption application at www.forgottencats.org/application.php. Ozzie needs to stay within a 3 hour drive of his rescue. Thank you so much for your consideration.

Gonzo - San Jose, CA ADOPTED!!

This handsome hunk is Gonzo.  Gonzo is a 12 yr old Maine Coon Mix male cat who weighs a hefty 13 lbs.  He is great with other animals, all kids, and is litterbox trained. 

Gonzo is the good-natured giant you fall in love with immediately. Gonzo wants to be where people are and is genuinely engaged with those who visit him. He will head butt you for endless pets, nuzzle into your neck to sleep and squeeze your finger with his paws in a show of affection. Cuddles in bed and running water are the way to his heart. If you want a big softie to adore and spoon, Gonzo is your guy!

Gonzo was diagnosed with asthma and is currently being treated with predisolone. He also has a heart murmur and a slightly unsteady gait, possibly due to a neurological condition.

Prior to adoption, all cats/kittens are spayed/neutered, tested for FIV/FELV, vaccinated, dewormed, deflead, and microchipped.

Amy - Laguna Woods, CA ADOPTED!

This is Amy!  She is a 13 yr old spayed female short haired cat.  She is declawed.

Amy is looking for a VERY special human!  One who understands that trust takes time and is willing to work with her.  She is an extremely shy kitty that needs a very special person with loving patience to help her gain trust. She had been bullied by another cat in her previous home so she should be the only cat.

 

Her former parent was also hospitalized frequently, which may have resulted in neglect or mistreatment.  It has also recently been discovered that she has a heart murmur, a 2 on a scale of 1-6.  (Hospice Pet editorial note, a 2/6 heart murmur is very mild!!)  

 

She needs a forever home where she can bond and learn to accept love. This could take up to a one-year commitment.  She will curl up on the end of a bed or back of a sofa. She has the sweetest voice and will vocalize with you, but she is still somewhat unapproachable. If you have a big heart and the patience of Job and are looking to share your home with this very frightened, sensitive, lovely girl, please contact Olivia Pagano at 949-472-4744 or email olivia.lwca@yahoo.com

Deva and TK - Troy, SC  ADOPTED!!!

This is a really tough situation.  The dog on the left is Deva, she is an 8-10 yr old female Chihuahua and the dog on the right is TK, a 14 yr old neutered male Rat Terrier. 

On April 19, 2019, their owner was killed in a car accident.  A devastated friend of the owner contacted us.  There were also two senior cats who have found homes but these two need an immediate solution.  

Not much is known about these guys but they are believed to be housebroken, good with other animals, and good with people.  We don't know anything about their health status other than TK appears to have a skin issue.  The owner was elderly, in poor health, and on a limited income so may not have been able to pay a veterinarian recently.

The owner's adult children are unable to take TK and Deva due to their own animals and home situation.  Currently the they and the neighbors are visiting the house of the deceased daily to feed the dogs but they are scheduled to be surrendered to a shelter that has already said they will be euthanized due to age.  

If you can help get these two into rescue, foster, or adopted, please call: 864 602 1549 cell or email: straycatoutreach@gmail.com .

Roscoe - Detroit, MI    Adopted!!!

Look at this sweetheart!  Roscoe is a Pit/English Bull terrier mix, 10 yr old neutered male who weighs in at 60 lbs.  He is housebroken!

Roscoe was found in a terrible condition on someone's porch. Our rescue took him in and treated him for fleas (he had no fur left on tail and back), got him neutered and had a tooth pulled. He also had a large mass removed, and the biopsy proved it wasn't cancerous. The mass grew back within weeks. He is heartworm positive, but isn't healthy enough to go through treatment, and never will be. He is on a monthly preventative.

 

His demeanor is very sweet! And age-appropriately stubborn. He came to us with no hearing, but can now hear a little bit. He enjoys his walks, with a wagging tail. He loves car rides and has a good appetite. Roscoe needs tooth care, but is otherwise pretty easy to care for. He does great at the vet. We are hoping for a foster home where he can live out his days. He can be around kids - preferably around 8 or older. He can still go on his hind legs to get attention from time to time. He is a cat -maybe- . The cats needs to be smarter or faster than him. He is not bad with dogs, but gets excited and starts coughing. So he should be separate from other dogs. Feel free to reach out if you want to meet him, or have questions. He is delightful, but your time is running out!

For more information about Roscoe visit https://www.rebeldogsdetroit.com/mission or send an email to  info@rebeldogsdetroit.com.

Winnie - Grand Blanc, MI ADOPTED!!

This smiling beauty is Winnie!  Winnie is an 11 month old American Bulldog mix, spayed female who weighs 45 lbs.

Winnie is a healthy girl who was born deaf.  In terms of special needs, this is a mild one.  She is a WONDERFUL family dog!  She is great with other dogs and  loves to play! She is playful with cats but can paw them and accidentally hurt them. She is great with kids of all ages and is being fostered in a home with a two year old little girl and twin six year old boys.  She is also housebroken!

Having a deaf dog just means that the dog learns to rely more on hand signals and you have to keep them safe but they live totally normal lives!!

For more information on Winnie you can check out: www.adoptgoodkarma.com/adopting or email Char@adoptgoodkarma.com 

Cajun - Monterey, CA ADOPTED!!!

This adorable nugget is Cajun!  He is a 10 yr old, 9 lb, neutered male terrier.

Cajun is what you might call a "people dog." Outside? He's comfortable where he is. Walks? He'll pass. Toys? Not interested. But give him the chance to sleep under the covers with you, sit on the couch next to you or just gaze adoringly into your eyes, and he's all about it.

 

He's a delightful mix of cuddles and sweetness. He ignores cats, does well with other dogs and can assimilate into a pack or relax on his own. He's very responsive to human direction, and surprisingly, treats aren't always required. Cajun is just a calm, mellow dog who always feels at home. Take him for a car ride, and he'll quickly find a comfy spot in the car to curl up and sleep. 

 

Cajun is deaf and doesn't know any commands, but he speaks the universal language of companionship. And he's waiting for YOU! He came to us from Salinas Animal Services after being found as a stray.  This wonderful senior deserves to find his forever home!!  

For more information, visit: https://www.peaceofminddogrescue.org/adopt.php and please fill out an adoption questionnaire to learn more about Cajun and to speak with his foster!!  Cajun is available to go anywhere for adoption but the family must come and meet him in Monterey. 

Sunset - Brooklyn, NY ADOPTED!!!

Meet Sunset!  Sunset is a 2-3 yr old, female, 10 lb medium haired cat.

Sunset was found at the end of March 2019 wandering around the Park Slope area of Brooklyn, NY looking for food. Since then she has been at NYC Pet, 218 5th Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11215.  Sunset likes people, enjoys her wet food and a nice, gentle head scratch. When she gets into a loving home, she will blossom! She isn't crazy about other cats, but she is becoming more tolerant of them. 

 

Sunset has restrictive cardiomyopathy (RCM), which means that some portions of her heart muscle are thicker than normal, some are thinner. The thick portions do not relax as well as a normal heart, causing blood to backup within the heart. She also has high blood pressure, for which she is on medication. At this time, the cardiologist says that her disease appears to be mild.  With a good diet and blood pressure meds, her condition has improved tremendously, and we think she will do even better in a home. She has to take pills, but no worries. Just put them in her wet food and she gobbles them up! She needs a quiet, caring #fosterhome or #foreverhome. If you take her home, she will return your love 10x!

You can see a video of her before and after at: https://youtu.be/IxYbAAKL3D0.

Yowie - Auburn, AL  ADOPTED!!!

Meet Yowie!  He looks like he should be in the movies with that face!  Yowie is a male terrier mix, 9 yrs old, 40 lbs.  Yowie is housebroken, good with other animals, and can live with kids. 

Yowie has been a "resident" with our shelter for the past year. Thankfully, a foster home has stepped up for him and housed him for almost the entirety of his time with us. He is heartworm positive, but still positively adoptable! Yowie does display symptoms of a vestibular disease (similar to vertigo in humans) that causes him to have a head tilt. This has not hindered his daily life though! It just makes pictures of him even cuter. We would love to see Yowie in a forever home to live out his golden years!  Interested parties may visit our shelter directly at https://www.leecountyhumane.org/ email at foster2@leecountyhumane.org, or call us at 334-821-3222.

Milo - Gardena, CA   ADOPTED!!!

This hunk of love is Milo!  Milo is a 14 yr old neutered male Pug who weighs 17 lbs.

From his rescue:  Milo has the kind of smile that will simply melt your heart. Relinquished to us by his owner because she could no longer care for him, Milo loves human attention and companionship. He is always cheerful and attentive with a happy tail.

 

Milo was born deaf and, due to age, is partially blind. It's best to approach him slowly so he doesn't get startled; although his sense of smell is so great, he usually already knows you're there! In addition, Milo also has bladder stones. The good news is that it is well managed with just a special diet.  With his age, he isn't reliably housebroken but don't that deter you from meeting him!!

 

Conditions aside, he is a very special boy. He adores cuddles, baths, brushings and a good back-end scratch - in which case he will happily "tap dance" for you.

 

Milo would do best in an only dog home. Due to his sight impairment, tiffs tend to break out between him and the others when he bumps into them. Despite his senior age, Milo is still very full of life and energy, with all the love one Pug could give. Always smiling, always cheerful, your most loyal friend is waiting to come home. While he has had some mild issues, Milo's HIPPO (Honorary Pug Parent), mentioned that he did great with her dogs during a sleepover. We have a foster-to-adopt option where you can take Milo home for two weeks and see how he does with other pets before committing to him.

For more information on handsome Milo, please email info@pugnationla.org or call (310)327-7871.  You can also visit www.pugnationla.org

Annie - Phillipsburg, NJ ADOPTED!!!

This pretty girl is Annie!  She is a 9 yr old, 7 lb female tabby cat!

Annie is a very pretty declawed gentle senior girl. She likes to talk to you and be held and petted - she likes attention!! She would do best as an only cat. Her family adopted her as a kitten but are getting divorced so they did not want her anymore.

Cutie Pie - Lafayette Township, NJ  ADOPTED!!!

Who doesn't need some Cutie Pie??  Cutie pie is a female, DSH, 14 yr old, 8 lb tortoiseshell kitty who is litterbox trained.  She is declawed and extremely loving and sweet. 

Cutie Pie is exactly the type of pet we are trying to help. She unfortunately was diagnosed with a mass on her liver and in her mouth. This is most likely cancer, but a biopsy has not been done. She is looking for an adopter accepting of her illness who will give her the best quality of life for whatever time she has left. To meet Cutie Pie you can visit her anytime during our open hours listed on https://www.fatherjohns.org/ or email info@fatherjohns.org.

Marilyn - Lafayette, NJ ADOPTED!!!

This beautiful girl is Marilyn!  Marilyn is an 11 yr old, 15 lb, female spayed cat.

Marilyn is an amazing cat! She is so loving and sweet. She loves to be snuggled and carried around. She likes to go for drives and will happily sit in the passenger seat without a carrier, what a ham! She has lived with cats her whole life and has met a few dogs here at the shelter and has done great with them. She enjoys everyone's attention including kids! Marilyn even loves to hang out outside in the nice weather on a leash. 

Marilyn is one of the most unique cats I have ever heard of, let alone met in person. Marilyn's harrowing story starts last fall when she was accidentally poised by rat poison.  She survived the initial poisoning with a dedicated medical team, but was left completely paralyzed for a short time.

Slowly but surely she regained function in most of her body. One of her front legs is still completely paralyzed and one of her rear legs is functioning at about 70%. She can hobble back and forth to her litter box and food. She uses a very shallow pan litter box and is able to make it there most of the time. The more weight she loses the less accidents she will have.

She requires physical therapy that you can do yourself in home, and to monitor her carefully to make sure she is still doing well. She is on a pain medication right now, and it seems to have made her much more comfortable. She is also on a prescription weight loss diet you can get at the veterinarian to try to get a handle on her obesity.

Our veterinarian is recommending that if she can loose significant weight, she should have the paralyzed leg amputated because she can feel it, and it is painful. She loves to hang out with her favorite people, get attention and lovings, and go for "walks" outside in the sun to help lose weight, build strength, and enrich her time.

Marilyn is looking for a pro-active household willing to work with her. She could fit into any home that has the time and resources to take care of her!  For more information you can email: info@fatherjohns.org or call (973)-300-5909. 

Rosie - Chester Springs, PA  ADOPTED!!!

Look at this beautiful girl.  Rosie is a 7 yr old, 55 lb spayed female Rottie/Shepherd mix.  Rosie is not only housebroken, she is great with other dogs, is fine with kids, and is easy to walk!!  Can't get any easier to bring into your family!

Rosie had a hard start to her life. She came from a commercial breeding facility, but wasn't sold because she was a mix (and not a designer one!) She must have been fending for herself a lot of the time eating what she could find. When she came to MLAR, we discovered she had been eating sticks and soil to fill her empty belly. As a result, our Vet team needed to remove the blockage so much roughage caused. They also discovered she has cancer.

 

In spite of it all, Rosie is super sweet and is happy for any loving attention from the Volunteers. We are looking for an adopter to give her a place to lay her head for whatever time she has left. If you are interested, please fill out an application and come meet her.

For more information, please fill out the adoption application at www.mlar.org!!!  Lets get this gentle girl into her forever home!  

Cruiser - Chester Springs, PA  ADOPTED!!

This handsome guy is Cruiser!  Cruiser is a 7 yr old neutered male Pug/Shar Pei mix!  He weighs in at only 15 lbs.  

Don't be fooled by his expression...he looks like he is pondering some deep philosophical questions but he is a total lovebug who will make you smile every day!  Cruiser is housebroken, perfect with other dogs, fine with kids...he is EASY to live with!

Since this photo was taken, Cruiser sadly has lost his RF leg to a mass cell tumor that had spread. He doesn't seem to care about it, he's not embarrassed by only having 3 legs, not worried, not suffering. He just wants to live his life and gets some extra table scraps because you feel bad for him...he'll take those any day of the week!  You won't regret meeting and falling in love with Cruiser,  you will likely forget most days that he has anything wrong with him. He will bring you smiles and joyful days and happiness.

For more information and to schedule a meet and greet with Cruiser, please click on www.mlar.org to fill out an adoption application.  He's looking forward to meeting you soon!

Florie - Philadelphia, PA ADOPTED!!!

This beautiful girl is Florie.  Florie is an 8 yr old, 61 lb female spayed Border Collie.

Sweet Florie is the best girl! She is a happy dog who loves to go for walks and snuggle up. She is good with all people and animals and she is housebroken!

 

Unfortunately, Florie was recently diagnosed with thyroid cancer. Due to the type and location of the tumor, surgery is not an option. Therefore Florie is in need of a special adopter who will give her the best life during her remaining time. For more information on adopting Florie, email: info@savedme.org!

Zhanae - Gap, PA  ADOPTED!!

This beautiful girl is Zhanae!

Zhanae is a 4 year old American Bully. She had presented with unilateral paralysis (one hind leg) when she was a week from her due date. A week later she had a c-section and delivered 11 puppies. We had hopes she would gain mobility back. Unfortunately her other leg became paralyzed as well. Sadly, her owners were unable to pay for her care and a paralyzed dog wouldn't do well in their multiple story apartment.

 

Zhanae is an absolute sweetheart who just wants attention and love! When she sees or hears children she gets very excited and will drag us to go see them and give them kisses. She LOVES kids!!  She wants so bad to run around outside and will even chase a soccer ball when she has hind end assistance.

 

She still has control over her bowels and will opt to go potty outside if she is taken out. She is very trusting and quite patient as we have been trying to fit her with a cart. She always seems interested in meeting the other dogs in the hospital and we haven't seen any aggressive tendencies. We haven't seen her interact with any cats just yet.

This is just the nicest dog and we would love to see her find a home who can give her the home she deserves!  For more information please email: Colleenstewart21@gmail.com .  Zhanae is looking for a home within about 50 miles of her rescue.

Weeble - North Wales, PA ADOPTED!!!

Meet WEEBLE!!  She may wobble but she won't fall down!

Weeble is a 3 month pure bred lab that was rescued from a Lancaster Puppy Mill by Home at Last Dog Rescue. Weeble has seen a neurological specialist and it is suspected that she has a problem in her brain (cerebellar) that causes her brain not to talk perfectly to her legs.  She plays like a normal puppy but is clumsy and her hind legs are just on a slightly different program from her front legs.  The medical word for how she looks is ataxic which just means wobbly.  While she has neurologic deficits, she is a typical happy go lucky Labrador puppy! She has never met a living thing she didn't love, she has all the love in the world to give!  She can also be urinary incontinent at times but it remains to be seen how things will change as she grows up.

 

Weeble deserves her chance at a wonderful home who will love her with her special needs and give her the chance to thrive! Please submit an application to Homeatlastdogrescue.com or email homeatlastdogrescue@yahoo.com

Chloe - Conyers, GA ADOPTED!!

Meet Chloe!  Chloe is about 10 y/o and weighs just a little over 8 lbs.

 

Chloe was suffering from pyometra when she was spayed at the shelter, which is a uterine infection that can quickly turn life threatening. Spaying your female dogs prevents them from developing this type of infection! For reasons that are still unknown, Chloe was adopted and then began experiencing seizures. The adopter returned her to the shelter, and that's where we entered the story!

 

She seized the first two days she was with us (early January), but has been seizure free ever since. Woo! She is on a daily dose of phenobarbital - we are still evaluating if she needs to stay on the pheno long term, or if the seizures could have been stress / environment induced.

 

Otherwise, Chloe is a pretty typical little Chihuahua. She wants to be held, always, and will happily snuggle with anyone who is willing. She is (mostly) housetrained, knows how to use a doggie door, and is dog friendly. Well, to be fair, she's more like dog INDIFFERENT, but she lives with other dogs of all shapes, sizes, genders, and personalities, and she behaves perfectly with everyone.

 

She is definitely more human focused and would be fine without another dog around as well. She doesn't mind being dressed up or carried around in a sling, and she is very tolerant of kids and strangers. She is a great ambassadog when we go to public events! Chloe has plenty of energy, enjoys walks, and loves to climb pretty much anything she can get her paws on - counters, beware! Chihuahuas can easily live into their late teens or 20s, so at age 10, Chloe has lots of life left in her. Please contact us if you'd like to make this fun, spunky little girl yours!

For more information, please email'  support@olddoghomega.com or call 470-333-2185.   You can also visit  OldDogHomeGA.com .

Buddy - Buford, GA

This handsome little dude is Buddy.  He is a neutered male Dachshund who is 15 yrs old and weighs 15 lbs.

Buddy is a 15 year old Dachshund who loves to sleep. He’s usually a very happy dog who loves attention and being close to you. Give him a blanket and a spot on the sofa beside you and he will love you forever. He will sometimes get a burst of energy and run around the house but it’s only for a few minutes because it wears him out.

 

He knows that he is supposed to go outside to do his business but he can’t always hold it anymore. He has very few teeth left but still eats his dry dog food.

 

I really hate to give him up but I am unable to give him the care and companionship that he deserves. He is such a sweet dog and he loves people. I’m not really sure how he would be with other animals but I did recently rescue a kitten and after a few weeks, he did decide that he likes having her around. And he definitely lets her know when he doesn’t want to be bothered.

 

I wish that I could keep him but I’ve been laid off from my job and I’m not sure where I will end up. Plus I’m having to travel a lot while searching for a new job and I don’t like boarding him. Please if you have room in your heart and home for my precious Buddy, email Cheryl : cmt8532@gmail.com.  I would prefer if he stayed in the Atlanta, GA area.

Sam - Brevard, NC ADOPTED!!!

This handsome senior boy is Sam.  He is a 10+ yr old, 45 lb, neutered male Australian Shepherd mix.

Sam is a real sweetheart.  He walks well on a leash and although very shy, has a confident, calm energy when outside. He's an old soul who really relishes in his outdoor time. Sam likes to find a good spot in the grass and rub his sweet face around on the ground! Sam is deaf but he compensates really well. 

 

Sam was surrendered to us by his new owner as she indicated she was misled when adopting him from another facility. She says he is extremely shy and not crate trained as she expected him to be. Sam is neutered, microchipped and ready to make your family complete!

 

Please note: Aussie's do not do well in a shelter environment and this boy is no exception. He needs a calm, nurturing environment to live his life out being the best he can be. If you'd like to meet Sam, please plan to do so right away. Sam may be deaf, but he is very good at reading body language and hand signals.

To learn more about Sam, please contact: Joleen Brannigan P: 407-697-6965 Email : TCASrescue@outlook.com

Hope is, when you approach her, a bouncy, cheerful girl, but alone in a metal cage she is absolutely terrified. Hope is heartworm positive and also has what look like burn marks on her back.

Poor Julianne was terribly neglected but she's on the upswing now that she is taking synthyroid medication (for thyroid) and eating well.  She is starting to grow back her fur!  Julianne needs a comfy loving home to live out her days. Julie is fine with other dogs as long as they give her space (no in your face active pups!) but would be happiest as an only dog.

Rocky is a very sweet boy, and walks well on the leash.

Emmy Lou - Lafayette, NJ FOSPICE FOUND!

This beautiful and gentle girl is Emmy Lou!  She is a 10 yr old, 70 lb Pittie.  Miss Emmy Lou is wonderful with kids, all animals, and is housebroken!!!

Whoever says that old dogs aren't lively has never met Emmy! Emmy completely proves that old dogs CAN learn new tricks! Sweet and gentle Emmy is an approx. 10 year old Pittie girl who came to us with her brother,Buddy. They both were surrendered to us due to their owner passing,and are ready to make another owner happily ever after!

Tobias - East Hanover, NJ ADOPTED!!!

This beautiful boy is Tobias.  He is a 12 yr old neutered male orange tabby.

Tobias is a super affectionate, head-butting, purr-machine who also happens to be 12 years old, a front declaw, with a significant heart murmur, and in renal (kidney) failure.

 

He needs a hospice home where he can spend the remainder of his days, cuddling and being doted upon. This boy has a lot of love and life left in him, despite his age and disease!

 

He probably has about a year to live, but is not suffering now. When it is his time, we hope to assist him to pass easily and comfortably. He will need a fospice home that is capable of administering meds and subcutaneous fluids (it's easy!), as well as bringing him to doctor appointments in Madison, New Jersey.

Waffles - Lafayette, NJ  Sadly crossed the Rainbow Bridge

This beautiful girl is Waffles.  Waffles is a special case, she's only 6 yrs old and weighs in at just 6 lbs.  

Waffles needs a very special home. She might only be 6 years old but she has inflammatory bowel disease that has progressed rapidly. She needs someone who understands her special needs and that her medical issues may be expensive and ongoing. \

 

She often has bad days, or multiple of days, but then will have a good week or more. She gets along fine with the other cats here, but is timid with new people and doesn't like to be picked up because her belly is uncomfortable. It is possible that once she is in a less stressful environment she will get nominally better and more comfortable. If you have questions about her personality or medical needs please call!  It's not Waffles' fault she has these issues and she deserves a wonderful home!  We know you're out there!  For more information, please call (973)300-5909 or email: info@fatherjohns.org.  The website is www.fatherjohns.org

Ava - Fort Kent, ME ADOPTED!!

This pretty girl is Ava!  She is a 9 yr old, 10 lb, female spayed cat. 

 Meet Ava – a beautiful black and white "tuxedo" cat. Ava would love a quiet home with a patient loving human where she could be an "only child." The household and human companion(s) would need to be that of an experienced cat owner, not because she is aggressive, but because she is very timid and will need time and patience to get comfortable.

 

She has previously lived in a household with a dog and young child, both of which frightened her and left a lasting negative impression. She has been at our shelter for quite some time, and is not making meaningful progress as she is very overwhelmed by shelter life.

 

This gorgeous girl loves to flip on her back and have you tell her what a good girl she is in a soothing voice. When you do so she will look at you adoringly with her bright yellow-gold eyes. When she feels relaxed and secure, she enjoys "making biscuits" in the air and has the best chirping purr. Are you that special person who could provide Ava with a calm and friendly fur-ever home? She would be so grateful to be given a chance to grow and thrive with a gentle human companion.

 

Come and meet her and you may find yourself with the best furry friend a person could ask for. Ava's hobbies include: advanced yoga (very dedicated), reading The New Yorker, and listening to old jazz standards.

 

Note: PAWS strongly discourages the act of declawing cats. However, Ava's front paws (and possibly back as well) were declawed before she came to PAWS Haven. PAWS is a nonprofit organization that rescues abandoned cats in the St. John Valley. Organization members believe most pets can be socialized and prefer not to release them back outdoors, as winters are harsh in Northern Maine. PAWS operates as a no-kill shelter. Their mission is to get owners to spay and/or neuter their animals to help cut down on the population and give all animals a better chance at a quality life. PAWS Animal Welfare, Inc. spays, neuters and vaccinates mature animals before they are placed out for adoption. To find out more about adopting a cat from PAWS or how you can help the "PAWS cause," visit our Facebook page ("PAWS Animal Welfare Society, Inc, Fort Kent"), check out our website: www.ourvalleypaws.org, email us at: pawsanimalwelfaresocietymaine@gmail.com, or call 543-7348.  Her rescue would prefer that she be adopted within the New England states.

Kit Kat - Fort Kent, ME ADOPTED!!!

This handsome fella is Kit Kat!  He is a neutered male 8 yr old, 11 lb, domestic medium haired cat.

Meet the handsome KIT KAT. Kit Kat is an adorable male goofball. He is a handsome black cat (with some delightful tiny white "details") and his medium-length fur is the perfect halfway point between a short and long-haired cat.

 

Kit Kat loves to play with toys, every type! This 8 year old boy is very clever, often being the first at the shelter to figure out how new toys work, or how to climb the new wall shelves that were installed for the cats to exercise on. He is playful and inquisitive.

 

Unfortunately, Kit Kat has been at our shelter for a long time, and he can be a bit of a bully. He is a special needs cat in that he doesn’t like his belly touched, or to be picked up, but he does enjoy a gentle head rub. He wants to be the boss and decide which room to be in and when he wants affection or wants to be left alone. The interesting thing is that there have been a few cats that have come thru the shelter that he got along well with, even though he plays rough... but those other cats have long since been adopted.

 

Kit Kat needs to be in a home without children. We do not know how he would do in a home with a dog, or with another cat (since he is very particular about who he gets along with.) The best match for Kit Kat would likely be one where he could be an "only child," have plenty of sensory stimulation (windows to bird/people watch out of), interactive toys, and a human that would play "fishing pole"-style toys with him at several points throughout the day to help him burn off energy.

 

Kit Kat has a lot of love to give, he just can't seem to find a home that would be a proper match. His hobbies include: playing Scrabble, reading cookbooks, and practicing his country line-dancing.

 

PAWS is a nonprofit organization that rescues abandoned cats in the St. John Valley. Organization members believe most pets can be socialized and prefer not to release them back outdoors, as winters are harsh in Northern Maine. PAWS operates as a no-kill shelter. Their mission is to get owners to spay and/or neuter their animals to help cut down on the population and give all animals a better chance at a quality life. PAWS Animal Welfare, Inc. spays, neuters and vaccinates mature animals before they are placed out for adoption.

Sunset - Brooklyn, NY ADOPTED!!!

Meet Sunset!  Sunset is a 2-3 yr old, female, 10 lb medium haired cat.

Sunset was found at the end of March 2019 wandering around the Park Slope area of Brooklyn, NY looking for food. Since then she has been at NYC Pet, 218 5th Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11215.  Sunset likes people, enjoys her wet food and a nice, gentle head scratch. When she gets into a loving home, she will blossom! She isn't crazy about other cats, but she is becoming more tolerant of them. 

 

Sunset has restrictive cardiomyopathy (RCM), which means that some portions of her heart muscle are thicker than normal, some are thinner. The thick portions do not relax as well as a normal heart, causing blood to backup within the heart. She also has high blood pressure, for which she is on medication. At this time, the cardiologist says that her disease appears to be mild.  With a good diet and blood pressure meds, her condition has improved tremendously, and we think she will do even better in a home. She has to take pills, but no worries. Just put them in her wet food and she gobbles them up! She needs a quiet, caring #fosterhome or #foreverhome. If you take her home, she will return your love 10x!

You can see a video of her before and after at: https://youtu.be/IxYbAAKL3D0.

For more information please contact Jean Bubley, Adoption Coordinator, For Animals, Inc. by emailing: jean.for.animals@gmail.com or call: 917-856-4534 OR Theresa Samsingh, Founder & Director, For Animals, Inc. email: adoptions@foranimalsinc.com or call: 917-257-6759.

Ruby - Cloverdale, IN  ADOPTED!!!

This adorable little beetle is Ruby.  Definitely not your typical hospice animal!  Ruby needs a very very special home. 

Ruby is the best little dog you'll ever meet! Ruby was born 10/3/18 and she's never met a stranger, dog or human, and even likes cats! She's been around children and her tail just never stops wagging!

 

While Ruby has plenty of energy, she loves to snuggle up with her humans and sleep too! She's happiest when someone is paying her attention. She is crate trained but of course, still working on potty training. We are making leaps and bounds on it though!

 

Ruby is a bit of a special girl. Ruby has a liver shunt that is inoperable. Ruby was born with this defect, but it just makes her even more special. She lives a very normal full life on a prescription diet and a couple medications to help remove toxins from her blood. She will need to wait a little longer for her spay - which is why she needs to be a foster to adopt situation until that is complete (between 8-12 months of age). Her meds and food run around $100 a month right now but that may decrease as we find the right combination.

 

An adopter would have to be committed to working with a vet for the rest of Ruby's life to ensure she stays healthy. (She should not need more than once yearly visits, but it is important to stay consistent with any vet so they know her history.) Her diet is not SUPER strict, but her main kibble will never change. 4PUP's is committed to helping Ruby for the rest of her life as well, in any way we can. 4PUPs will cover the cost of the spay, and all medication/food while Ruby is a foster. We would just prefer that she find her forever home sooner than later! If you are interested in Ruby you can send an email to info@4pups.org to request one. Ruby's adoption fee is $75.

 

Katie - Liberty, IN ADOPTED!!!

This beautiful girl is Katie.  She borrowed Craig's hat for this photo!  Katie is a 10 yr old female spayed Beagle who weighs 32 lbs.

From Katie:  I am great with kids, with other animals, and am even housebroken!  The vet says I am a bit too chunky and it's causing my heart to work too hard so they put me on a diet.

 

I take daily walks to help get my weight down so that I can have surgery on my eye. These crazy cherry eye things bug me and get in the way of seeing stuff. I am working hard to get in prime condition to be adopted. I just know I can do it. I am a girl who loves other dogs, cats and kids. I have some silver on my face but a heart of gold. Go to www.libertyacresunited.com and put in an application to adopt me.  You can also call or text 765-969-4782.

Jerry Jercino aka JJ - Cloverdale, IN ADOPTED!!

This handsome mush is JJ!  JJ is a younger dog and weighs about 40 lbs.

JJ looks a little serious in all those pictures but he is definitely quite the goofball! He is EXCEPTIONALLY people friendly, including children and has a LOT of enthusiasm! J loves to walk, hike, bike, rollerblade, and even hikes out with the horses fairly well.

 

JJ gets on well with dogs of a similar size and does seem to prefer females. He can be somewhat territorial in his home with new dogs especially with young energetic dogs that are bigger than he is. He seems ambivalent about the outside cats, so dog savvy cats should not be a problem. As a herding breed, if it runs, he's going to chase it and probably bark at it to get it to keep running! Jerry is definitely looking for someone who wants to give him a lot of attention, training, fun times, and exercise!

 

He is a very typical herding breed who can go on and on if you let him. The great thing is that Jerry has an excellent off switch too! Once he's had some good exercise, he's happy to settle down and nap the day away.

 

He has basic manners, kennels beautifully, and wants very much to please. He has no puppy behaviors left, and won't tear up the garbage or eat your shoes either! He loves to play tug and will fetch softer toys.

 

Jerry is special needs because he has damaged nerves in his hind end from past abuse and is completely missing his tail. This has caused fecal incontinence. He does wear diapers when needed, but for the most part he does not actually need them because his incontinence is maintained with a raw diet. His new owners will have to be dedicated to only feeding him things his belly can tolerate to ensure that he stays as healthy (and poop free!) as possible. He has learned to wear a muzzle comfortably while he is off leash in large areas to prevent him from eating inappropriate things as well. The rescue group is happy to provide as much support as necessary to ensure success in this area.

Kricket - Bedford, IN ADOPTED!!

Meet little Kricket!  He is an ~13 yr old, 5 lb male Chihuahua.

Kricket is a wonderful senior boy that just needs a retirement home. He came in through animal control so we do not know his past. So it is unknown whether he is potty-trained, or good with kids. The other dogs here does not seem to bother him at all. He is heartworm negative, up to date on vaccines and heartworm prevention. We have also dewormed Kricket and are slowly putting weight back on him. We are looking for a rescue or adopter that can take care of his sweet old man and hopeful do some dental work as he needs it.

For more information please call: 812-279-2457 or email: wrhsmgt@gmail.com

Godiva - East Greenville, PA ADOPTED!!!

This adorable munchkin is Godiva!  She is a 3 month old female mix breed dog.

She was born March 7th 2019 in a shelter in Alabama. She came to PA with her mom and 6 siblings. She looks to be a mixture of Catahoula Leopard Dog, Husky, Lab, and Shepard.

 

Godiva very quickly started falling behind her siblings in growth and development. She always seemed sick and has been on numerous rounds of antibiotics in her short life, we just never seemed to be able to cure her.

 

Our vet took the next step of chest x-rays, which then led to a chest ultrasound as one x-ray shows her heart has moved to the left of her chest. The results of her ultrasound shows Godiva has one lobe of her lung collapsed and fibrosis. There is also fibrosis on the tip of a second lobe This is likely from getting sick because of being born in the shelter. The damage is permanent and she will never have use of that lobe, she also has a crackle sound when she inhales that will most likely also be permanent.

 

She has good days and bad, but with the regimen we are following the good days far outnumber the bad days. On a bad day she is lethargic, breathes very heavily and just wants to be held. She is currently eating in a chair(must be supervised) to help food go in the right direction and keep her from possibly aspirating. With her lobe being collapsed it has left a gap on the left side of her chest which her heart has moved into.

 

She can live a decent life with special care and patience but she will never be a normal pup, and exercise should be limited to cooler/less humid parts of the day as she gets winded easily and the high heat and humidity takes its toll on her lungs making it hard to breath.  She definitely will need a home with air conditioning during the summer.

 

Godiva is super loving and has tons of stories to tell you when she first wakes up. She has her quirks, she hops rather then runs, sometimes falls over and seems off balance, and gets tired fairly quickly. Fast movement and loud noises scare her easily but her personality certainly makes up for everything. Today (6/3/19) she was again checked at the vet and they said her the healthy lung lobes sound great!

 

 We are holding off on her spay for another 2 months to give her body more time to adjust and grow. After her spay surgery in early-mid August Godiva will be available for adoption through Logan's Heroes Animal Rescue Inc. located in East Greenville, PA. Or to the right person local to the rescue she could be a foster to adopt, so she could bond with her forever home while waiting for spay surgery. If you feel you may be the right fit for Godiva you can submit your adoption application today at www.lharinc.org to be pre-approved for when she is healed from spay surgery in August.

Questions can be emailed to info@lharinc.org Adoption Application is on our website at www.lharinc.org

Dutchie - Chestertown, MD

This gorgeous senior is Dutchie.  He is a 15 yr old, 57 lb male German Shepherd.

Dutchie lived outside on a chain for his entire life. He is blind in one eye but gets around very well once he is used to his new environment. He gets along with other dogs. We have no way to test him properly with cats or kids here at the shelter. Our guess is that he wouldn't mind them as long as they do not climb or fall all over him.

 

He is a very laid back dog and not much seems to phase him. He is not neutered and our veterinarian does not recommend having that surgery done due to his senior age. Although he is heartworm and Lymes positive he is not showing symptoms of either. Dutchie just needs a loving home and soft bed to laze around on for the remainder of his life.  Will you be Dutchie's angel?  

We are willing to transport (by car) just about anywhere in the United States. For more information please contact:  spresgraves@kenthumane.org or shelter phone 410-778-3648 (ask for Sonja)

Lulu - Kirkland, WA ADOPTED!!!

How beautiful is little Lulu?  Lulu is a younger, 8 lb, female spayed cat.

Lulu is the sweetest little girl. When she was a young kitten, she had her eyes removed because they ruptured from a terrible infection, but that doesn’t stop her from loving life!

 

Her former family had a young girl and she did very well with her. She is curious and interested in her surroundings. As long as there is not a lot of change in her home, she can navigate around very well! She isn’t fearful as long you approach her slowly and with a gentle voice.

 

She is such a sweetheart! Lulu also has a severe form of heart disease called Dilated Cardiomyopathy (DCM), and a clot in her left atrium. Her prognosis is considered “fair”, but there is no way to know for sure; it’s possible she could have several more months or years of a good quality life. Lulu takes her daily heart medication very well. She will need her heart monitored regularly through vet checkups and echocardiograms. Lulu has some skin allergies, which have responded well to a hypoallergenic diet and antihistamines. She has been weaned off the antihistamines, but we recommend keeping her on the hypoallergenic diet, with no other food or treats being given. What Lulu wants most is to find that special person who has room in their heart for this sweet sweet girl.

Lulu has no adoption distance limitations but a foster would need to be in the Seattle area. For more information, please email: marnie@meowcatrescue.org

Betty and Bullwinkle - Brookhaven, PA

Meet Betty and Bullwinkle!!  

These female spayed kittens were rescued from a trailer park. Betty is cute gray tabby tuxedo. Betty's left eye was damaged and had to be removed. Bullwinkle is a black and white tuxedo with vision problems.  Neither of these babies know that they are special needs!!

 

From the foster: Bullwinkle also has vision issues, but not as severe as Betty's. I was told it is likely Betty can only see shadows, but it does not really alter her ability to get around or play. They gallop around the house and then cuddle together and clean each other before naps!!

 

Betty can be skittish while she explores a new place since she does not see well, but with Bullwinkle exploring ahead of her she quickly gets acclimated. They are both friendly and attention seeking! Food must have been scarce for them before because they are very food driven. Meet Betty and Bullwinkle at the Adoption Center located in the Brookhaven PetSmart. Submit a no-obligation adoption application: http://www.forgottencats.org/application.php

Kringle - Middletown, NY ADOPTED!!!!

This is Kringle!  Kringle is a 7 yr old, 40 lb, neutered male Golden Retriever.  Don't let his blindness deter you from meeting him!!

Kringle is a super sweet and spunky boy! He may be blind, but that doesn't stop him from getting around. Kringle loves going for walks, and really enjoys being around other dogs. Ideally, he'd love a home with another calm dog who can help show him the ropes. This boy did live in a home for a bit, and the fosters said he adjusted quickly, and was quite well behaved with them. We think Kringle would be a great addition to a family willing to give him time to adjust to his surroundings.  He is not housebroken but he is great with other animals and older kids. 

For more information please email: adoptions@petsalive.com or 845-386-9738.

Isobel - San Jose, CA ADOPTED

Meet the beautiful Isobel!  She is an 8 yr old, 9 lb female spayed cat.

Isobel is a mellow calico enjoying the security and stability of a foster home while she waits to be adopted. Could she be the sophisticated cat companion you've been seeking? Isobel prefers a quiet home where she can soak up the sunshine in the daytime and snuggle with her person in the evening.  She is currently in a foster home with dogs.

 

Isobel is special needs because she has some signs of irritable bowel syndrome and inflammation in her pancreas so she requires prednisone daily.  She also seems to have some arthritis and receives gabapentin.  Currently, she receives a monthly Adequan shot.   She happily eats her meds when you put them in her food: easy, breezy, calico girl! Open your heart to all the possibilities before you with this beautiful feline.  Because she eats her food slowly and her meds are in it, she needs to be in her own space all day.

 

Prior to adoption, all cats/kittens are spayed/neutered, tested for FIV/FELV, vaccinated, dewormed, deflead, and microchipped. This cat is currently in a foster home. To meet her, please fill out an adoption application so that we'll have your contact information, and we'll get back to you as soon as possible. www.thedancingcat.org

Pauly Boy - Woodland Hills, CA ADOPTED

Meet Pauly Boy!  He is long haired Nebelung or Russian Blue cat and he is gorgeous!! He is a younger guy (<5 yrs) and weighs 15 lbs.

Pauly Boy is VERY friendly and loves to be groomed!  Pauly is FIV+ which is an immune deficiency disorder but does not require treatments. FIV cats can live a long, healthy life.  FIV cats are often overlooked and don’t find homes which is unfortunate but a lot of people don't understand how FIV is transmitted. The thinking has changed on the likelihood of the virus being transmitted to other cats -- it's primarily transmitted by deep bite wounds, so it's now believed that non-aggressive FIV+ cats can safely live with non-FIV cats. Regular indoor-kitty wrestling and rough-housing that doesn't result in bites that break the skin will not transmit the virus.

Most cats with FIV don't experience any significant FIV-health-related issues once they are fixed and living inside. The virus can affect their immune systems and make them more susceptible to kitty colds, and they are also prone to having dental issues, but most live long, relatively healthy lives.

Pauly Boy is looking to be an indoor pet only with no children. He tolerates small dogs but would prefer to be the only animal companion in your life. He is looking for an experienced cat adopter! Pauly is neutered, de-wormed, de-flead and up to date on all vaccines.  His rescue is Krazy for Kats Adoption Woodland Hills, CA 91364.  You can visit the website at www.krazyforkats.org or call: 818 527 5287.

Jessica Rabbit - Oxnard, CA  ADOPTED

We have a celebrity in our midst!  Meet Jessica Rabbit, an 8 yr old, 12 lb female spayed cat.

Jessica was born with Radial Hypoplasia or tiny front limbs. She gets around beautifully doing her little army crawl and she loves her stroller!  She loves everybody she meets, she's a wonderful and social cat and is fine with other animals. 

 

She was brought into our local no kill shelter in a box covered in feces and mud, appearing as if she may have been discarded by her previous owners.

 

Jessica is a bit overweight as she has a hard time with regular exercise but not with meals. She has appeared on Hallmarks Home and Family Adoption Ever After and there were several applications from the East coast but Jessica is too large to travel under the airplane seat so she can't fly. Watch Jessica's TV appearance at  https://youtu.be/cYpHkBIFuKE.  For more information please email: Leslie A Weiss Leslie@surfcatcafe.org.

Whiskey - Fort Mill, SC ADOPTED!!!

This sweetheart is Whiskey.  Whiskey is a 7 yr old, 54 lb, neutered male Shepherd mix.

Whiskey was abandoned, tied to a deck in the backyard of his previous owners home.  You can see in the photo how skinny he was.  In spite of that, Whiskey is a sweet boy who loves to play catch and fetch. 

 

He has not been very well socialized but is learning manners.  He is picky about which dogs he likes so he would have to have a meet and greet with a potential sibling.  Older kids are fine but they recommend he not be adopted into a home with cats or small kids.

 

Whiskey is heartworm positive (going through treatment) and has been diagnosed with metastatic cancer in his jaw (see photo).  We're looking for a home for foster so he can spend the time he has left,which could be months or years,so he can live a happy fun life. In spite of all he's been through he is still a loving and sweet boy. We know there is someone out there that will come along side of us to give this boy a fun loving home until it is his time to say goodbye. We thank you in advance.  

Whiskey's rescue would like him to stay relatively local to his rescue but please contact them to discuss details.  For more information, please visit: www.mynextpet.com.

Zeke - Houston, TX ADOPTED!!!

This is a nanny-dog if I've ever seen one!  Meet Zeke, an 8 yr old neutered male Mastiff.  He weighs 60 lbs. Zeke is great with kids, other animals, and is housebroken!

Zeke was rescued from the local county shelter from the euthanasia list. Zeke is just as sweet as he can be. He is a kind and gentle soul. He would do great with a family to dote on him and help him feel safe. His foster mom says he is a gentle giant. He gets along great with her crew and really loves the human baby.

 

He is so good with her!! Zeke is heartworm negative, up to date on shots, neutered and microchipped. He walks well on a leash and is an all around great guy. Make him part of your family today.

This rescue can transport out of state!  For more information, please email: hhpprescue@yahoo.com

Asher - Conyers, GA crossed the rainbow bridge 

Oh be still my beating heart!  Asher is a ~10 y/o, 90lb big ole block head of some kind.

 

He likes long naps on the couch, licking your face repeatedly, and (not) getting caught in the rain. He also enjoys laying in the leaves, sunning himself, and having his ears cleaned out by the resident puppy. He does NOT like pushy dogs or sharing his food.

 

Ash absolutely *LOVES* kids and will happily lay and cuddle with them for hours. Due to his age and arthritis, he needs to be treated calmly and respectfully, but we would love to see him go to a family with older children to dote on him. He is also friendly with 8 of the other 9 dogs in the house. The only one he doesn't tolerate is the Coonhound, and that's because the Coonhound was likely dropped on the head as a pup and wouldn't know gentle, respectful play if it jumped up and bit him in the butt (much like he does to Asher).

 

Ash is generally house trained and does not chew anything inappropriate. He was pulled from Cobb County Animal Control on October 13, 2018, suffering from neurological problems and a dangling, baseball sized tumor. He has since had the tumor removed, and he has been neutered. Unfortunately, after a lifetime of having been left intact, Asher is now battling prostate cancer (which is exactly why you need to spay / neuter your dang dogs!).

 

He is currently on a daily medication to shrink his prostate tumor, as well as daily pain meds. At present, he is eating, drinking, peeing, pooping, and enjoying life. We're hoping that we still have many more months or even years to come with this big guy.

 

In addition to the cancer, Asher appears to have suffered from a stroke or other traumatic injury at some point in his life. His face is a little lop-sided, and his back legs do not support him fully. He is able to walk, but he moves slowly and needs a surface he can grip - on a smooth floor, his legs slip out from underneath him. Asher is not going to be a hiking buddy, but he is perfectly capable of getting in and out of the house, around the yard, and up on the couch. He even knows how to use the dog door! He also adores car rides and will happily accompany you through the drive-thru for a Puppacino.

 

Due to his special medical needs, we are seeking a Forever Foster Family for Asher. You will provide love, cuddles, toys, and food, and we will cover all medications / vet care for the rest of his life. Asher needs to go to a FFF that has previous large dog experience, as well. If this sounds like you, please contact us!

I really hope somebody reading this will step up and give this wonderful dog his forever home.  For more information, please email: support@olddoghomega.com or call 470-333-2185.  You can also visit the website at OldDogHomeGA.com

Violet - Caldwell, NJ Crossed the Rainbow Bridge

Meet the prettiest flower of them all, Violet!  She is a 9 yr old, female spayed, 50 lb, housebroken Staffie mix.

Beautiful Violet came to Rescue Haven Foundation in northern New Jersey on March 21st. When we saw the email subject line "9-year-old stray NEEDS SURGERY FOR MAMMARY MASSES ASAP! " within seconds we said YES! Violet was found as a stray in NYC and brought to a large overcrowded shelter. We knew she couldn't stay there one minute longer.

 

Violet's prognosis coming to Rescue Haven was listed as "guarded to poor" but that made us want to help her more. She arrived at our veterinary hospital wagging her pretty little self right up to everyone she met! Upon examination, our vet noted a very large ulcerated and open tumor coming from one of her breasts. The tumor was as large as half of a grapefruit. She also had other smaller tumors in her other breasts. Unfortunately, we found that the tumor had spread to her lungs and liver. Our vet team removed her masses and biopsy results revealed a diagnosis of Canine Mammary Osteosarcoma which sadly has metastasized.

 

Violet is a kind and loving girl who somehow ended up alone on the streets. Lucky for her, she is safe now but we do not know what her future holds. We do know that she needs an angel to give her a home, whether it be a hospice foster or forever home, she needs a place to comfortably lay her beautiful self. Unfortunately Violet prefers to be without other pets so a pet free home is required.

 

She loves ALL people and has been very sweet and easily manageable while at the vet hospital. BUT..... Don't let her age or diagnosis fool you! She lives life to the fullest, so whether she has two months or 12 months, the quality of life she lives every single day is what is valuable to her. She has got a smile that lights up a room and a tail that never stops wagging. 💕

UPDATE:  Violet is currently living at our partner Veterinary hospital and it's just not a fair placement for her, she is decompensating and really wants to get into a loving home. We don't know how long she has, maybe weeks, maybe months but she superb with people and would love to have a home filled with humans but she shows a very negative reaction to any other animals.  She's best being a home without other pets as we want her life to be a stress-free as possible. We can just imagine her sitting in the backyard listening to the sounds of summer , rolling on her back for belly rubs and chewing on her favorite rubber toy. She loves to go for walks and adores her people. We are desperate to get her out of the kennel and into a home. Please help this vibrant and beautiful girl.

For more information please fill out a foster or adoption application for Violet at rescuehaven.org or email us at info@rescuehaven.org.  Violet's rescue would like her to stay local to their veterinary hospitals but anybody with interest in Violet should reach out!!

Harlan - Forkville, KY ADOPTED

Well look at this adorable guy.  This is Harlan, a 6 yr old, 73 lb Foxhound (we think).

Harlan is just the cutest.  He loves kids, dogs, and cats but would LOVE if he could go into a home where he had cat siblings.  They love him too and sleep near him!  Harlan is fairly low energy, just loves to laze around on couches and beds and get snuggles from time to time. He likes to walk around the yard and even plays a bit with other dogs in the home, but overall is pretty lazy.

Harlan has early-stage kidney failure and needs milk thistle and home cooked low-protein wet food meals. With the milk thistle and home cooked low-protein wet foods, his symptoms have vanished. He does not need to drink water frequently and he does not need to go out to urinate frequently. That may happen in the future, but for now, he has no symptoms. He is a normal happy hound!  He is crate trained. He will also follow his nose (did we mention he is a hound?) so a fenced yard is needed but he can climb over wire fences, so a solid fence is better, or else a tie out or zip line when he wants to spend a little time outside.  Harlan is adoptable to anywhere and his rescue can help organize transport!

For more information about Harlan, please email: annagbn@gmail.com or find Anna Nirva on Facebook

Sandy - Brevard, NC ADOPTED!!

This is Sandy!  She is an ~ 9 yr old, female, 48 lb, Treeing Walker Coonhound.

Meet Sandy! Sandy is a very sweet Treeing Walker Coonhound. She is estimated to be 9+ years old. Having come in as a stray, we don’t know anything about her past, but she came in emaciated and coughing.

 

As a shelter dog, in the present, she is calm, affectionate, an absolute sweetheart to all shelter staff and volunteers and loves other dogs. Why special needs? She NEEDS a home with someone who loves her as much as she loves them. She NEEDS a home because she is a senior who has obviously lived a hard life and now deserves all the comforts and TLC possible. She NEEDS someone to shower with affection. She NEEDS a nice, cushy sofa to curl up on. Can you provide the future this dear, sweet girl deserves? It will probably involve a spot on the couch and lots of love given and received.   Sandy will go to the bathroom when taken out but won't always remember to ask.

 

Sandy has an amazing personality and spirit. She still loves to go on leisurely walks but most of all, loves to cuddle. Please reach out for more information on this special girl! P.S. She doesn't often bark or bay, but you can see a hilarious photo of her doing so below when she wanted to go meet another dog. :-)

For more information contact Joleen Brannigan at the Transylvania County Animal Shelter P: (407) 697-6965 or email:  TCASrescue@outlook.com

Sid Jingles - Tacoma, WA ADOPTED!!

This adorable creature is Sid Jingles!  Sid is a 12 yr old, 12 lb neutered male Silky/Dachshund-ish mix.

Sid Jingles came to us from a high-volume shelter due to his extensive medical needs at the time. Sid was diagnosed with severe dental disease, ear and skin infections, cataracts, hypothyroidism, a heart murmur, a collapsed trachea, and a growth on his foot!

 

Sid has been treated for all conditions and is currently only on life-long medication for his thyroid and cataracts (approximately $16/month). All but one of his teeth had to be removed and the growth on the foot was also removed (benign). Like any Silky, he will require grooming and, in his case, special shampoo. This sweet little old man is so precious and does great with people, dogs and cats. We would love to see him in a forever home for the rest of his days, loved by a family to call his own. His sweet soul is looking for you!

For more information you can email: programs@kindredsoulsfoundation.org or call: 253-226-3135.

Sophie - Nashville, TN ADOPTED!

Meet beautiful Sophie!  Sophie is a rare breed called an American Curl.  She's 12 yrs old, 8 lbs, and spayed. 

This amazing 12-year-old purebred American Curl is just the sweetest girl ever! This is rather a rare breed to find in rescue. She came to us when a friend contacted us from a local vet clinic where her owner was wanting to surrender her. He had had her her whole life, but now had a significant other who hated cats and they got a puppy together who was tormenting her relentlessly.   It turned out that we had already talked to him and tried to give him advice that would allow her to stay in her home, but alas, he chose to surrender her instead.

 

So, sadly, this stunning girl who should be enjoying her retirement in the safety of her home and with the love of her person is now in an unfamiliar world hoping to find someone who will love her and allow her to live a quiet, peaceful life with them. All this girl asks for is a calm and quiet home. We aren't going to say outright that she must be an only child, but in all likelihood that is what will be best for her unless your current pets are really calm and easy going. We think she would be happiest without young children.

 

She can seem quite shy when you first meet her, but she is extremely sweet, gentle, and loving and she would love to be part of your family! Wouldn't you love to give this wonderful the peaceful life she so deserves? If so, you can submit an application at www.FLUFFNashville.org.

 

We consider out of area adoptions. However, the adopter is responsible for transport. We do have to approve the form (i.e., if flying, must be in cabin, not cargo).  

Noelle - Boonton, NJ

This gorgeous girl is Noelle!  She is a senior, 35 lb spayed female Lab mix.

We found this sweet senior girl in San Antonio waiting for a Christmas miracle. She had an ugly hanging mass on her ear that was causing her discomfort and looked just awful. Thanks to one of our long time volunteer fosters in San Antonio, we were able to get her out of the shelter in time for Christmas.

 

As a senior girl in tough condition, her chances of making it out alive were not good. We brought Noelle to our rescue vet who thinks she may be close to 12 years old, but the veterinarian at the shelter seemed to be of the opinion that she's 7 or 8. It's very hard to determine age, so it's probably a safe bet that she's somewhere between 8 and 12.

 

The tumor on her ear was a simple papilloma - ugly to look at, but easy to remove and the prognosis is excellent. She does have a couple other small lipomas, common in older dogs, and do not need to be removed. While she was in surgery, she got a full dental workup including a cleaning and removal of a couple cracked teeth. She's now got a spring to her step, her coat is getting nice and shiny again, and she's got a new lease on life. Her foster mom reports that she's not especially playful, but gets along fine with her own dog. She enjoys just hanging out and going for the occasional walk and she's looking to live out the rest of her "second life" with a happy family. Noelle is good with dogs but unknown with cats or other pets.

Noelle is available for adoption in the state of NJ.  For more information, please visit northstartpets.org

Cosmo - Harahan, LA ADOPTED!!!!

Oh my goodness, look at huggable Cosmo!!  Cosmo is a 13 yr old neutered male lab/retriever mix who weighs 75 lbs.  I think you could safely say he's good with kids, look at the smile on his face in the first photo!  He's good with other animals as well and he will happily go to the bathroom outside but doesn't always remember to ask.

I may not have eyes, but don't let that be the reason you 'overlook' me- a handsome golden haired dog that loves Pina Colada's (just kidding. I prefer water, neat) and getting caught in the rain. My friends call me 'Cosmo', and my favorite is belly rubs! I just love a good belly rub at anytime!

 

I like most things, except staircases. I can handle a few steps like a champ, but big staircases? No can do.(If I had to, I could, with you by my side but I wouldn't want big staircases in my daily life). My roommates, a big mastiff and aussie mix, keep me company and share the burden of being harassed by two resident kittens. Those young whippersnappers are all party! I'm happy to lounge the day away, but don't worry, I'll still greet you appropriately when you come home; plenty of tail wags and huff'n'puffs!

 

A little light playtime now and then gets me going, and I may be 13, but I still love adventures. Take me to happy hour! Or for a meandering walk...heck, I even like the dog park on occasion! My nose is always twitching, being that's my main way to learn about the world. Amazing the amount of smells in the air, on the ground, it's crazy! In my recent past, my eyes were giving me so much trouble, my care team and I decided it would be best to remove them. I'm much more comfortable now, and my fur's grown in so I don't look funny. Who needs eyes anyway? Most people don't realize I'm eyeless until they're about to kiss me! Because I'm a Distinguished Senior, my adoption fee is waived and you get 6 months of heartworm preventative, on the house. Sounds like a deal! I'm lucky to be in a foster home while I await my forever home. Are you ready to take a chance on love? Email jpasfosterEB@gmail.com to meet me!

Tuna and Tierra - Lillington, NC ADOPTED!!!

Tierra and Tuna were owned by breeders and left homeless when the breeders died. They are both female. Tierra is a purebred Highland Lynx born 4-9-2005 and Tuna is a purebred Desert Lynx born 11-29-2004. I am told they are special because the very first Highland Lynx kitten was born in 1995 at Timberline cattery in NC!

 

These 2 cats came from some of those original bloodlines and there are few of those left these days. Tuna is a big love bug. She loves to lay on you and get snuggles, Tierra is sweet as sugar too but is happy laying beside you to get her rubs and love. She has the best little motor when you live on her. The girls love each other and spend lots of their time together. Tuna likes getting can food as well as dry but Tierra is happy with just dry. Both of the girls adjusted well to my cats, but dogs tend to stress them. They like to sleep in the bed with their human. We want to find them a home where they can stay together. They are up to date on vaccinations, FeLV/FIV and heartworm negative and microchipped. We are asking a combined adoption fee of $125. More photos at https://photos.app.goo.gl/LWkd9T4vPamUZWfa9hat gorgeous girls!  They weigh about 14 lbs.  For more information please visit http://www.taillesscatrescue.com/ and email taillesscatrescue@hotmail.com.

Liberty - North Wales, PA ADOPTED!!

This adorable baby is Liberty.  He is a 3 month old male Goldendoodle.

Liberty is a wonderful ,snuggly puppy that loves everyone and everything!!  He is as wonderful as most doodles usually are. Sadly, he needs a very special home because he was born with a heart defect.

He was rescued from a puppy mill and found to have a grade V/VI heart murmur. Very sadly, the cardiologist says he has a severe congenital heart disorder called subaortic stenosis.  This consists of excessive tissue that partially blocks the path for the outflow of blood from the heart to the circulation, creating a partial obstruction.  The result is an increase in strain on the main pumping chamber of the heart, the left ventricle, as the heart works harder to maintain a normal circulation. Unfortunately, while mild cases have a normal life span, Liberty's is severe and he and will likely have a shortened life span. 

Liberty deserves to be loved until it is his time. Who will step up for this wonderful soul?  For more information please email: rffchrissie@yahoo.com.

Magnum - Philadelphia, PA RESCUED!!

Meet Magnum!  He is an 11 yr old male Yellow Lab.

Magnum has been described by his shelter as the best dog ever! This sweet boy came to the PSPCA as a part of a cruelty and neglect case in our Humane Law Enforcement Division. He was completely limp and minimally responsive when he came in, and we weren't sure if he was going to make it, but wanted to give him his best chance.

 

After hospitalization, fluids, transfusions, and intensive care, Magnum came back with a vengeance! This amazing guy is now bright, alert, responsive, and in GREAT spirits! His favorite thing in the world is playing fetch, and his second favorite thing is snuggling with his friends.

 

Magnum is currently being monitored in the hospital for kidney and liver function, but he continues to do great. He's a bit thin, and has some weakness in his hind end, but otherwise acts pretty much like a normal, happy dog. Because of his medical needs, we haven't done an official behavior evaluation with him, but we do know that he has lived with other dogs and lights up when he sees them on walks. He's the most energetic, social, sweet 11 year old we've met and we would love to see him in a great home.

For more information about Magnum please email: mbernstein@pspca.org.

Honey Bear - St. Louis, MO Crossed over the Rainbow Bridge

This happy girl is Honey Bear!  Honey Bear is a 10 yr old, 68 lb, female spayed Shepherd mix.

Honey Bear is a kind dog who lived most of her life outdoors. She came to Camp Chaos severely heartworm positive, and spent 4 months undergoing treatment, but has come out strong! She is now very healthy for her age, but did gain some extra weight during her treatment and is working on getting her summer bod back. We can relate, Honey Bear!

Honey Bear is very gentle, seeks affection, and likes to play fetch with her favorite squeaky toy. Honey Bear is housebroke, crate trained and does well home alone. She does have some anxiety during thunderstorms, but is comforted with the presence of her people. She is good with respectful children and all dogs; however prefers a home with no cats.

Honey Bear is available for adoption to MO or IL residents (Approx. 150 mi radius from St. Louis, MO). We do not ship or transport our dogs to other parts of the country.  Inquiries may be emailed to info@campchaospuppyrescue.org. Applications can be found on our website www.campchaospuppyrescue.org.

Mac - St. Louis, MO

Look at this smooshable and kissable face!  This is Mac, a 12 yr old, 85 lb neutered male large breed dog.

Mac is the most happy and wonderful dog that deserves to have the best rest of his life! He still plays with toys. He likes to toss them in the air and shred them. He's still fairly energetic. He's a big goofball that doesn't understand space. :-) He gets excited and twirls and jumps and steps on people and pets that happen to be around him. He loves to give kisses and if you let him in bed, he likes to lay on you for a bit.

 

Mac was rescued from Jefferson County, MO Animal Control in 2010 with heart worms. We thought he was about two or three at that time. We cured the heart worms and adopted him out to a family with small children. They kept him for several years and then decided they no longer had time for him and returned him to our rescue.

 

Everyone that meets Mac loves him. We are looking for a home where Mac can be the only pet or perhaps one other pet so he can get all the attention. We are also looking for someone that is retired, works from home or can take their dog to work with them. We'd love it if Mac could go on short walks every day. Mac is still strong and is easy to walk on a gentle leader head collar.

 

Mac is relatively healthy. He takes daily joint supplements to keep his arthritis at bay. Eventually he may need prescription medicine. He also has some problems with incontinence. Sometimes he cannot hold it as long as other dogs might. He also sometimes gets really excited, will drink a lot of water and then cannot hold his urine. It will come out while he is walking. He is taking Proin for that. It helps. However he cannot take the full dose because of its side effects. If someone was home to let him out his urination is not a problem. Also you just need to be mindful of excitement and excessive drinking and manage it and then it is not a problem.

 

Currently Mac lives with three other dogs and a cat. His foster Mom works full time and takes him to work with her once or twice a week. He is her co-workers' favorite dog. If you live in the STL metro area and are interested in Mac, please email: Stacy.Banes@stlpetrescue.com.  His rescue would love him to stay within 50 miles of Fenton, Missouri but if you are interested in Mac and outside of the area, please still reach out.

Barney - Joplin, MO ADOPTED!!

This adorable mop is Barney!  He is a 13 yr old, 12 lb male Shih Tzu.

He gets along with dogs of all sizes and with cats. He is alert and curious, loves walks, sitting in your lap, or exploring the yard. He doesn’t act his age at all and has a personality that will make you smile every day.

 

Buddy has a heart murmur that is controlled with daily medication. A rough estimate of his meds is approximately $65/ month. There are no limitations on where Buddy can live, but an in person meet and greet is required.contact his foster for more information : C.schechter@hotmail.com .

Sissy - Cedar Mountain, NC ADOPTED!!

This gorgeous senior girl is Sissy.  She is a 10 yr old, 50 lb, spayed female American Staffordshire Terrier.

Sissy could hands down be a Amstaff breed ambassador!!! This 10 yr. old girl LOVES other animals, children and is housebroken. She walks beautifully on leash and enjoys snuggling more than anything else in life. Her unique brindle and white coat is gorgeous but what really makes Sissy special is her gentle spirit.

 

Sissy was just diagnosed with lymphoma. Our pro bono vets give her 2 - 8 months to live her best life, but I can't wrap my head around it. She still loves to go on walks and play with other dogs. She is constantly smiling, as you'll see in the videos and photos of her "dropping dead" to avoid going back into her kennel at the shelter. Sissy is one-in-a-kazillion. She will give more in love and affection in her time left on earth than many dogs would in a lifetime.

 

This girl is housetrained, medium energy and loves leash walks. Need a sidekick you can take anywhere with you? Are you able to provide the best life ever for a hospice pet in need? Miss Sissy is your girl! Please contact us today. We'll do everything in our power to find Sissy's forever home and assist her adopters in any way we can. Can't get enough of Sissy?

Powder - Roseland, LA ADOPTED!!!

This is Powder!  Powder is a female, 12 yr old, 60 lb German Shepherd.  

Powder is a gorgeous white German Shepherd dog. She has had several kennel mates while living at Raven Woods Animal Sanctuary for the last twelve years.  The sanctuary where she lives is in a very rural area and there is no adoption traffic, through no fault of any of the dogs who live there!  She has gotten along with everyone. She is very friendly and spry. We do not know how she is with cats as we don't have cats at the sanctuary. We do know that so far, she has not met anyone she doesn't like.

Because Powder has lived in a kennel for her whole life, she is not housebroken but Shepherds are smart and we bet she would figure it out over time! 

 

Check out this adorable video to get to know Powder!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RLd3YXgnhwA

Would you like to meet Powder and see if your house is the one she can call home for the rest of her days?  For more information please email

Merdoc - Fort Worth, TX

This beautiful black lab is Murdoc.  He's a 10 yr old, 90 lb, neutered male.

Merdoc is a senior guy with typical large dog arthritis. I believe he is a bit hard of hearing as well.

 

Shortly after his neuter this gentle guy was sent to a foster home with 3 small children and several dogs and was neither comfortable nor social with all the chaos. He went to a quiet place to hide and rest,  when one of the children sought him out. Startled him awake and Merdoc snapped. He did not break skin but was moved for his own safety.

 

The next foster was an only dog home and while he was asleep on the couch she reached over to snuggle him and again startled him and he snapped this time catching her ear. Poor fellow was banished back to boarding where he has remained.

 

Unfortunately, it was decided by a couple of people that had never met him, that he should be put to sleep for being "unreliable". I have been pushing to be allowed to find him a hospice home. He is quite reliable and needs a calm place to live out his days without chaos and someone that respects the fact he can't be startled while sleeping. He is Heartworm negative, being treated for his arthritis, and has been loved on by the boarding staff with no issues. We do not subject him to young exuberant dogs or children. I feel this old fellow deserves a chance, he just needs the right home.

Casper - Marietta, GA

This is Casper!  He is a 6 yr old, 8 lb, neutered male cat.  Casper is special needs because he is deaf.

Sadly, Casper's owner has to go into an assisted living facility and he is being forced to give up his beloved cat. Reading the email he sent with all of the information about Casper is heartbreaking because you can just see how worried he is that Casper ends up in the right home and how much he loves him.  I've opted to post his information directly from the owner (hence the capitalizations) but it's pretty touching and tells you a lot about Casper.  Can you imagine how sad this gentleman is to give up Casper?  We can all imagine how we would feel in this situation! 

Casper Is About 6 Years Old Never Been Sick, Since He's Been With Me, Just Injured When He Was Attacked By Another Cat, But He Healed Up Just Fine.

 

He Not Afraid Of Lakes Or Boats.

 

He's Pretty Strong & Smart He Knows How To Open Cabinet Doors & Drawers He Can Find The Best Places To Hide Too. He's A Good Climber, But He Doesn't Climb All That Much Any More.

 

Casper Like's His Daily Brush & Rub Before Supper.   He Likes Friskies Crunchy On The Outside And Soft In The Center Dry Food & Purina Fancy Feast Medleys Wet Food. He Also Likes Temptations Tasty Chicken Flavor Treats Soft Inside And Crunchy Outside Added On Top Of His Dry Food.

 

Casper Really Likes Cardboard To Lay On & Scratch, Helps Keep Him Cool, I Suppose. He Has No Interest In Cat Toys, But He Dose Have Some Interest In String.

 

He Sleeps About 12 Or More Hour's A Day. Especially When The Weather Is Not So Good.

 

Casper Is Deaf, So He Cannot Go Outside By Himself, I Always Take Him Out On A Leash, Which Oddly He Doesn't Want To Go Outside All That Much. Because He's Deaf He Can Get Terrified Of Anything And Everything He Doesn't Know Or He's Not Familiar With. Being That He Cannot Hear, He Can Be A Bit Loud At Times. He Doesn't Like Other Cats Because He's Been Attacked By Other Cats That Snuck Up On Him, Any Cat He "See's" He "Will" Confront Them In A Not So Nice And Friendly Manner.

 

Casper Is A One Person Cat And That One Person Being The One That Gives Him The Attention He Needs And Feeds Him. He Will Need A Place He Can Hide. He Needs To Have Safe Place To Run And Hide To Feel Safe In case He Gets Spooked Be Someone Or Something. He Needs That Safe And Secured Place Where He Can Stay Until The Perceived Threat Or Danger Has Passed. Which Is About 2 Hours Or Less.

For more information on Casper, please contact Christina Graff via email:  info@luckie-street.org or by phone: 770-298-0855.
