ADOPTED!!

Sweetpea - Ocala, FL  ADOPTED!

Meet Sweetpea!  She is an ~10 yr old female spayed, 7 lb cat.

Sweetpea is a cute little lady!  She was dumped at a kill shelter, where because of her age and somewhat unkempt apparence she was no doubt destined to spend her last days in a cage awaiting certain death.

 

We got her out of danger but now she desperately needs someone to love. She is a sweet cat who appreciates company and would most likely make a very good companion to someone. We imagine she was a great friend to someone in the past or they wouldn't have named her Sweetpea.

 

We think that she may have some sensitivity to being pet in certain areas also her back right paw is somewhat deformed looking and appears to have possibly been broken in the past and healed wrong. She doesn't walk normally but gets around just fine.

 

Her white fur is no longer very white and she is sure to be left behind by a typical person looking for a shiny new pet. This precious girl needs someone who will allow her to spend her golden years in peace with some affection and tenderness. Sweetpea doesn't seem to like cats. Does not seem aggressive towards small dogs but has not been in direct contact with them. Because of her somewhat fragile physical state, we would prefer her to be in a nice quiet home with no aggressive children. 

For more information, please call: 352 817 9745 or email: Happytailsadoptions@hotmail.com.

Romeo - Centralia, IL ADOPTED!!

This absolutely gorgeous Siamese is Romeo!  He is a 6 yr old neutered male 10 lb cat.

Romeo is such a sweet guy and so beautiful!  He is missing one eye and is blind in the other.  The remaining eye might need to come out at some point but right now he is just fine and, as you can see from the photos, it doesn't hinder him!!  He climbs up cat towers, and loves to lay in your lap, he's such a good egg!

 

Romeo is FIV positive. 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.

 

They don't need any special care or medication, just an indoor lifestyle and regular check-ups with a veterinarian. The thinking has also changed on how easily the virus can be 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.)  Romeo does not have FeLV which is more easily spread between cats.

He is able to be adopted to any state as long as his adopter comes to meet and get him.  For more information, please email hannagarrison10@gmail.com.

Wolfie - Dallas, TX ADOPTED!!

Meet Wolfie.  He is a 15 yr old, 7 lb, neutered male cat.

Wolfie became homeless when his owner had to leave her home to enter an assisted living facility - he was 1 of 11 unfixed cats that she had.  The rescue knew that he would be euthanized if taken to the local kill shelter so took all of them in.

Wolfie is a sweet senior kitty! He loves everyone and everything. He headboops all the kitties in the foster room.

Initially when new cats come into the foster room, Wolfie does the cat version of "Git off mah lawn" - he is not a bully cat but he hisses at them for a few days and then he loves on them once he has accepted that they are staying.

 

Wolfie is super chill and easy going. He loves to groom himself and likes to be brushed. He does not like his face fussed with, but otherwise likes to be petted. He licks my ankle in the morning while preparing his breakfast.

 

He is an old guy that walks like he's been on a horse for two days. He has no significant medical issues, is fully vetted, tested and chipped. He just needs his forever family. He has a sister named Wihlemina but they do not need to be placed together unless someone is looking for a pair.

Wolfie is available for adoption within an approximately ~200 mile radius of his rescue.   For all information, please email: 

catmatchers@yahoo.com Reference number: RS-WC2-19 Wolfie

Roo - Omaha, NE ADOPTED!!

Meet tiny baby Roo!! Roo is a neutered male kitten.

Roo thinks he is exactly like all other kittens! He runs, wrestles, and chases toys like the best of them! However, his front limbs have a congential malformation called Radial Hypoplasia/aplasia. This particular deformity is caused by the long bones in his front legs simply not developing as they should have - they are very short. Roo actually has a mild version and uses the few inches he has to help him get around. He may need extra padding when jumping off furniture but otherwise he can live a normal, healthy and long life!

 

There is no need for surgery correction of this condition.He is learning how to carefully navigate the house as a kitten so care will need to be taken so that he is set up for success. Eventually he will learn how to get around the house. He has always been cared for and very loved, and now he needs a forever home. He is very loving and gives great hugs. In his ideal home, Roo would be the only pet simply because his condition makes him vulnerable as he can't get out of the way quickly and cannot defend himself.

 

A very cat-friendly small dog may be okay, but not one that would get too rough or chase him. Other cats had previously bullied him so he is typically fearful and does not enjoy the company of other cats. We ask that he be with children over 12 as he likes to get underfoot and has a hard time getting out of the way fast. Roo would love to be the center of your attention and will keep you laughing for hours! Although a great wrestler, he is a professional when it comes to snuggle time. If you're looking for a kitten that will keep you smiling and make everyday better, this is your dude!

Boss - Lincoln, NE ADOPTED!!

Meet Boss!! He is an 8 yr old, 100 lb, neutered male Yellow Lab!

This is a handsome & sweet boy who simply wants to love and to be loved. He currently lives a quiet life with his foster mom and 3 cats with everyone getting along splendidly. Boss is housetrained (has not had one accident); knows how to sit; takes treats with a very gentle mouth; loves to sleep in; minds his manners (does not get on the furniture); and loves to go on car rides especially when they include a trip through the Dairy Queen drive through!

 

He mainly just wants to be “next to his person” and get a belly rub and/or a back scratch. Boss also happens to be totally blind due to PRA (Progressive Retinal Atrophy), though his blindness does not slow him down much. His current foster mom guides him up/down the steps in the home (bedrooms are on the 2nd floor and he sleeps upstairs at night). He does well with the steps, just need to encourage him to go slow on the trip down. His foster Mom’s home does not have a lot of clutter and he navigates through the house well. He remembers the placement of chairs and remembers where most corners/walls are.

 

Boss takes a long mile walk each day and has good leash manners. On walks he needs some guidance to ensure that he doesn’t run into curbs, trees, poles, etc. Honestly though – he is a great walking pal and so enjoys being outside and investigating “pee mail” Boss is lovable boy, who gets along well with kids (though he has not been around small children). He is a solid 100 lbs and his tail gets to going when he is happy.

 

Boss has a thyroid issue (low thyroid production) and will need to continue to take one small pill a day. He will do best in a quiet home without a lot of clutter or toys he can trip over. If you are looking for a new partner for new adventures, traveling, reading quietly on the weekends, or just being a good attentive friend – he is the “good boy” for you. Boss is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, given flea/tick preventative, dewormed, tested negative for heartworm disease & started on preventative. Adoption fee is $350 to help offset the many expenses we have for vetting costs. We rely strictly on adoption fees and donations to continue to save the lives of orphaned & abandoned pets; 100% goes towards their care.

Sissy and Johnny - Bowling Green, KY ADOPTED!

These beauties are Sissy and Johnny. They are 13 yrs old and ~11 lbs and are neutered/spayed.

One of the hardest things for us to do is to welcome back two of our animals who were adopted 13 years ago. Sadly, their beloved owner passed away and they are with us again.

 

As you know, a bonded pair of seniors is never easy to adopt out but they are the ones most grateful for the new homes they find. While Sissy is still a bit shy, you can see that Johnny is starting to come out of his shell. It is very obvious he was well loved and misses that love.

 

Seniors have a difficult time trying to adjust to shelter life and the longer they stay, the more difficult it becomes for them. We hope that someone out there is looking for a calm, loving, devoted duo to complete their family. Sissy and Johnny are beautiful cats and simply want a loving home to spend their golden years. Link to video: https://www.facebook.com/bgwchs/videos/626779111158419/.    For more information please call Bowling Green Warren County Adoption Center: 270-783-9404.

Tucker - Lafayette, NJ ADOPTED!

Meet Tucker!  He is a 5 yr old, 7 lb, neutered male cat.

Tucker is a wonderful and super affectionate cat! He is looking for someone who can be very understanding of his needs, and will not be scared off by his scary sounding diagnosis. Tucker is FIV+ and in diabetic remission. He does not need medications or additional care at this time. Just like with any pet, if you notice he has any concerning symptoms you would take him to the vet, but as long as he stays on his favorite food and he stays indoor-only there is no reason why he can't live like a totally normal cat.

 

He likes Fancy Feast Classic Pate, and as long as he stays on it consistently he should stay in diabetic remission. FIV sounds scary, but it really isn't - read more about it at https://www.hospicepet.com/fiv-and-felv. If you would like to know more about it please contact us and we will explain exactly why you shouldn't be concerned at all.

 

Tucker wants to be an only-cat, he isn't a fan of other feline friends. He is loving and affectionate and has lived with kids previously, and would love to have little buddies to cuddle with again, although he would be happy to snuggle with anyone. He is so sweet and affectionate, would you consider taking in this wonderful special needs kitty?

For all information, you may visit: Fatherjohns.org/adopt , or email: info@fatherjohns.org or call: (973)300-5909

Callie - Thurmont, MD  ADOPTED!

This beautiful and loving senior kitty is Callie.  She is approximately 11 yrs old or older, weighs 8 lbs, is spayed, and good with her litterbox.

From her rescue:  We don't know much about Callie's past other than that she seems to be dumped on a property with a can of cat food. Fortunately she was dumped at the right persons home who knew she needed help and brought her to us.

A quiet home would be best for this endearing lady. She really is a sweetheart and loves to be with you and get head scratches.  She gives a pretty good head boop!   She doesn't love being picked up but she is otherwise in great shape and such a sweet girl.  We also have learned that she has cataracts. She doesn't have the best sight or hearing, but she is a lover and really craves and enjoys attention!  She has some arthritis in her hip. She would do best in a home with no other pets. 

Callie recently had blood work done for a teeth cleaning and she is doing great for her age. Unfortunately, Callie has been with her rescue for 15 months and due to her aggression with other cats, she is out of her cage overnight but can't be out when the majority of the volunteers are there during the day.  They do their best to give her individual attention but she deserves a wonderful home of her own!  

  

Surely there is a quiet home out there who is looking to add a loving companion?  For more information, you can contact Cuddles Cat Rescue through email at info@cuddlescatrescue.com or through Facebook at www.facebook.com/Cuddlescatrescuethurmont. You can also download an application by visiting their website at www.cuddlescatrescue.com 

Liam - Brookfield, CT ADOPTED!!!(11/24/19)

Meet Liam! He is a 2 yr old, 70 lb, gorgeous neutered male German Shepherd dog.

Liam's story with us began when he was rescued from a high kill shelter in Texas and taken to vet's office to stay for a while while all of his problems were assessed and addressed. He had a prolapsed penis, sever ear infection, possible fractured pelvis, skin infection, high white blood cell count, his body score was a 2 and he was having trouble walking.

 

Fast forward to today - we believe that Liam is ready to find his forever family. He has been through a lot with 5 surgeries and so we are hoping that we can find a patient, understanding and loving family. Liam does have an altered gait - he had zero leg muscles when we rescued him but as he gets out for exercise his gait improves. He has abilities that normal dog has he is constantly improving.  When he first comes out for some exercise, he appears to walk on tip toes but this improves as he moves around.

He is not a very active dog,  he is is a boy that is desperate for love and attention and is trying to learn how a dog is supposed to act when someone shows him love. He would be great with someone who wants to turn a caterpillar into a butterfly.   He likes to snuggle up on soft things, he favorite spot is a bolster bed. He has not realized what a toy is yet, but we are trying.  He is a dog that an older couple would love and appreciate to take out on slow strolls.  He loves to be praised and talked to. 

We would like to see him be an only dog because we suspect in his former life he has been denied the love he so deserves and we don't want him to have to share right now.  He is housebroken. 

For all information, please email: barbara@ark-charities.org or call:  Tina 203-830-9774

Scooter - Montgomery County, PA ADOPTED!!

This ball of love is Scooter!  Scooter is a 1.5 yr old neutered male Pittie who is ready to steal your heart!  Scooter loves humans of ALL ages, is great with dogs, is housebroken and crate trained!!  Scooter hasn't met a cat yet so we don't know how he is with them. 

Scooter was recently diagnosed with Megaesophagus, a condition where his esophagus doesn’t have muscle tone to move food down to his stomach. During testing, the veterinarian found that some food does move on his own so he does have some muscle control but not all. To help with this condition, Scooter needs to be fed in an upright position in something called a “Bailey Chair” which positions him correctly for gravity to move the food to his stomach. It's not a big deal, it just takes a little longer for him to eat.

Scooter is described as amazing by everyone who has met him including his veterinarian! He is such a deserving guy and would love a home where someone can devote a few extra minutes at mealtime! Please visit www.Homeatlastdogrescue.org to complete an application or email rotnlab@verizon.net for more information!

Duchess - Cheverly, MD ADOPTED!!

This sweetheart is Duchess.  She is a 10 yr old, 20 lb, spayed female Schnauzer.

Duchess has had a rough couple months. Her beloved owner passed away and the family of the deceased who swore to take care of her dog passed Duchess around because nobody wanted to take care of her.  That is so confusing to any animal, let alone a sweet senior!

 

Once it became obvious that she has some medical issues that require medical attention, she got promptly dumped in kill shelter. Duchess arrived to us with giant fatty cell growth the size of baseball (not cancerous!!), that was causing her lots of pain. She was scared and confused and not trusting anyone. We had the tumor removed and got her the medical attention that she needs.

 

She is now post surgical recovery and ready to find a special home. Her whole world has been turned upside down after years of security and love, so she is weary and needs an understanding human who gives her time to warm up. She is in loving foster home with other dogs and gets along with almost all the doggies there, but would be perfectly fine being your one and only.

 

She hates being crated, and is looking for a home who wants a companion who follows you around the house and wants to be in your presence. She will get grumpy about being picked up and prefers to be your snuggle buddy and lounge partner (most likely cause she has just gone through so many medical procedures).. Duchess would do amazing as a companion for an older person who is looking for a dog who will make you her whole world. She is confused right now, but with love and stability, she will blossom again and hopes to find a special human who will allow her to gracefully live out her old years in peace surrounded with love. Please open your home to a wonderful senior.  For more information please email: Dena at denae@k-9lifesavers.org .

Paisley - Ortonville, MI ADOPTED!!

Meet Paisley!  She is a 3 yr old, 50 lb, female spayed Pittie mix.

Precious Paisley has a special story. She is a survivor. She was rescued in July from a suspected dog fighting operation. It was then found out that she has mast cell tumors. She is living a comfortable life with management of her diagnosis as it cannot be curable.

 

She is learning that this world can be a wonderful place. She has met a cat and a few dogs and has been playful with both but is still very unsure about them. There is a potential she could live with cat(s) and a low energy dog. She is typically low in energy but does have some spunk in her.

 

She loves to explore outside and enjoys snuggling up in her dog bed inside. She LOVES Kong’s and peanut butter stuffed bones. She enjoys ground beef mixed with her kibble and deserves to live out whatever time she may have being spoiled. She is quiet in her crate and loves treats.

 

She is a sweet girl that would love a quiet and patient forever home. She needs a home that understand that she takes a while to warm up. She needs her forever family to be patient with her as she explores and learns. Once she is comfortable with you she will follow you around and ask for pets. She loves to be loved on. Whoever is amazing enough to welcome Paisley in their home is going to be soooo lucky to look at her beautiful eyes every day. Paisley is looking for her forever home or a long term foster to spoil her and give her so much love.

Paisley's rescue would like her to stay relatively local to Michigan.  For more information, please email: ccrcdogs@ccrcdogs.com.

Pookie - Detroit, MI  ADOPTED!!

Meet Pookie, an 11 yr old, 19 lb neutered male Pekingese!

Don't you dare call Pookie cute!! (even though he's adorable!)  Pookie is a grouchy curmudgeon and don't you forget it!   Here are the facts: Pookie is not a charmer. He is self-important, and will love you, once he knows you. Pookie has outlived a past owner, is now 11, and ready for a spoiled retirement.

 

Please know the breed or read up before inquiring - he is a grumpy dude! Pookie can live with children who respects his boundaries, other small to medium dogs who lay off, and he is good with cats. Pookie loves walks and car rides, and is a great guard dog. He is easy to groom once you have gained his trust. Pookie likes to sit on the lap, being carried or lifted. He has perfect health, other than a minor case of cherry eyes (vet said to leave it as it was).

 

Pookie is available to be adopted within ~100 miles of his rescue. Inquire to meet this grumpy-pants today- he is perfect! For more information please email: info@rebeldogsdetroit.com.

Koko - Detroit, MI ADOPTED!!

Meet Koko!  What a face!  Koko is a 14 yr old, 11 lb, female spayed Shih Tzu.

Have you ever seen such a beautiful lady? Nope, not at 14 you haven't! She is 14 years old and still acts like a puppy. Koko can run, she can snuggle - she can't hear - but she can hide. In the trash if you're not careful!  She loves all other animals and kids! 

Koko was going to be euthanized by the family when her owner died. We got her as a surrender. She just got spayed and had a mammary mass removed - the vast majority of mammary tumors in unspayed dogs are cancereous and will spread, so that is probably on the horizon. Koko also appears to be fully deaf. She pees half a tablespoon, 10 times a day, we are addressing it medically. But she might just have this issue the rest of her life. Stools are solid and she goes outside!

Koko is so much fun, but realistically doesn't have a ton of time left. Fostering is always free! Click on:  rebeldogsdetroit.com/applytoadopt or call 313-338-4398

Holly - Detroit, MI  ADOPTED!!

This adorable sweetie pie  is Holly!  She is a young female spayed Pittie.

  

Holly was found on the highway, after being hit by a car. She has had a lengthy recovery, but an inoperable dislocated vertebrae makes it impossible for her to walk again.  Holly does not let her special needs get her down!! She is grateful to have been saved and is looking for her forever home in which she can thrive!!

Holly knows how to do a lot of things! She can hump around like a seal, stare into your eyes, use her wheelchair. She is very dog, cat, kid - everything friendly! But needs to be allowed to be a bit of a boss. Holly would love a single story home, with not to many steps out to the  backyard. The great big news about her is that she is now able to hold her urine more and more! At 30 pounds, caring for Holly is not strenuous work. She is very sweet about diaper changes and physical therapy exercises. Holly has a big, sweet personality. She is very content. 

For more information please visit: rebeldogsdetroit.com/applytoadopt . Questions can also be answered by text or call: 313-338-4398.  Holly is available within 100 miles of Detroit.   

Sal - Solon, OH ADOPTED!!

Meet Sal!  He is an 11 lb, 15 lb, neutered male Jack Russel Terrier mix.

Sal is a very kind old man and completely adorable! He was found living in a rabbit cage outside with several other dogs. The dogs were thankfully rescued and went to different rescue organizations. 

 

We found that Sal has a grade 6/6 heart murmur. His heart is enlarged radiographically, but was not in failure at the time of X-ray. He has been having seizures, which his foster hasn't seen and they may or may not be syncopal episodes (related to his heart) or they may be true seizures. He has a very large lipoma on his side, which is not operable due to his other issues. He’s on phenobarbital, at last check he was in the therapeutic range and on vetmedin for his heart.

 

He just got a full dental work up and is looking might snazzy these days. Sal enjoys being outside, probably because that’s where he is has been living. He loves a nice dog bed to cuddle up in. He is a gentle soul and just needs someone to love on him. Sal is neutered and current with vaccinations. He is crate trained, and we are working on potty training. He does potty outside, but he will not always wait if he has to go. But we are working on it! If interested in Sal, please complete an adoption application found at www.pawsohio.org

Miss Little Lou - Cortez, CO ADOPTED!!

Meet Lou!  She is an approximately 9 month old, 40 lb, female spayed Australian Shepherd mix.

Miss Little Lou has the eyes of an old soul and has endured much in her short life, but is so sweet, friendly, and loving no one would guess what she has been through. She was found on a Native American reservation with a damaged hind leg (possibly hit by a truck).

 

The first repair involved inserting a long metal rod into her leg, which didn’t work. It caused damage and was infected, so the leg was eventually amputated. She is such a trooper enduring the surgeries and aftercare with a plea in her eye and a wag of her tail.

 

She is now looking for that special forever home. Lou is approx. a 9 months old Australian shepherd mix with cute spotted front paws and a long swishy tail. She weighs about 40 lbs, shouldn’t get much larger, is spayed, and is UTD on vaccinations.

 

She is house trained, sort-of leash trained, affectionate, playful, great with other dogs big and small, great with children, but is too much for cats.

 

She can manage the shallow porch steps, but hasn’t been up/down regular stairs, and cant jump into a car though she rides fine once in. Subsequent x-rays indicated that her pelvis may have also been fractured, so her mobility is probably as good as it will get. Lou has free run of several acres with other dogs to play with, but she does tire running and will sit down to rest. She does have a “rear support cart/wheel chair” and can go a mile or so with this. When inside, she “scoots” a lot, may partially be due to slippery floors?

 

She likes to play with toys, chew on bones, wrestle with her doggy house mates, and cuddle with her person. She’s not the dog for you if you are looking for a running/ biking/ hiking partner, but if you are looking for a sweet, gentle, friendly dog who just wants to be loved, Lou may be your match. Lou’s adoption fee is $95.00 and she is being fostered in Cortez, CO.

For all information, please email either Maggie :  mgruschow@gmail.com or email to : blackhathumane@gmail.com.  We would love for Lou to stay relative local but are open to adopting her into the perfect home anywhere!

Jaguar - Colleyville, TX ADOPTED!!!

Meet Jaguar!  RAWR!  He is a male mixed breed puppy who was born on 5/19/19.

Adorable Jaguar is a hilarious, typical little pup who loves everybody and anything and only wants to play.

 

Sadly, Jaguar was born with a heart defect. We had him evaluated at Texas A&M. The right side of his heart has extra muscular tissue that impacts circulation. The left side of his heart is a little smaller than it should be. The cardiac team at A&M described Jaguar’s condition as very rare and surgery has never been done to correct this on a dog as small as Jaguar. He can live a relatively normal life and at some point he could start showing signs of heart failure and medication may help. We just don’t know because it’s so rare.

 

He is a happy and sweet boy who loves everybody. We just want him to find a home where he has a playmate and can just be a puppy. He is puppy pad trained and will be neutered once he’s a little bigger. He is available through tzuzoorescue.com.

Austin - Reed City, MI ADOPTED!!!

This handsome and earnest fellow is Austin.  He is a maybe ~7 yr old, 40 lb, neutered male Lab mix.  Perfect Austin is housebroken, great with other animals, and wonderful with kids!!

Austin is really hopeful that he will find a loving new home! Found as a stray south of Reed City, this handsome neutered male lab mix is quite the sweetheart here and has TONS of unconditional love to offer his new humans! Austin has stolen our hearts! Super sweet, House-trained and well mannered too.

Would be a welcome addition to your loving home and we think he's a most deserving furfriend :) Adoption cost is only $35.00 and we think he's worth it!  

Austin is available to any location but no transport is available.  For more information, please call the shelter at 231-832-5790 - Ask for the Director Michelle Kuz.

 

 

Mike - Brick, NJ ADOPTED!! (11/24/19)

Meet Mike!  He is an 8 yr old, 17 lb, neutered male Chihuahua/JRT mix.

Meet our special needs boy Mike!  This sweet boy has a bilateral heart murmur (grade 4/5 out of 6) due to a leaky valve. We took him to a cardiologist for an echocardiogram and he is now on Vetmedin (2mg twice a day) which he will need to be on for the rest of his life to delay the onset of congestive heart failure . He is such a great dog who loves people and other dogs....we are hoping there is a kind soul out there who will consider adopting him. Mike has been a perfect resident and he loves to spend time and go for walks with our staff and volunteers. He will need follow up appointments with a vet who specializes in cardiology. With heart disease its hard to know how long a dog will have but we want Mike to know the comforts of a real home and family rather than spend his days and nights in a shelter. www.jerseyshoreanimalcenter.org .  You may email: info@jerseyshoreanimalcenter.org or call 732-920-1600.  He is available for adoption within a few hour drive of his rescue. 

Agatha - Oakland, NJ ADOPTED!!

Raise your hand if you want to be adopted!  This is Agatha!  She is a 15 yr old, 6 lb, female spayed cat.

Agatha is a 15 year old, domestic short hair who came to us from another shelter where they were unable to provide her with the advanced level of care she initially needed. Agatha is hyperthyroid, has kidney disease and a dermatological condition.

 

We have since gotten her more stable on both medication and a special diet, which she will need to be kept on in her foster home. Though she is an older gal, she still has a lot of life left in her. When given the opportunity to roam around, she is still super active and enjoys to play. Agatha is incredibly affectionate with people and is tolerant of the other cats. However, it is probably better that she go to home with no other animals so that her diet can be more easily managed or she will need her own space in which to eat.

For all information please email: cfarrar@rbari.org.  If someone wants to take Agatha on Fospice, she should stay within close range to her shelter but she can go further for adoption.

Russ - Mena, AR ADOPTED!!

Meet Russ.  Russ is an 11 yr old, 58 lb, neutered male coonhound.

Buffy - Joplin, MO  ADOPTED!

This adorable mop is Buffy!  She is a 12 yr old, 11 lb, female spayed Shih Tzu.

 Buffy is a sweet, calm, and cuddly older dog who survived some major health issues. She had large mammary tumors removed and recovered very well. She has no ongoing health issues and would be a loving companion. Mammary cancer is a cancer that is prone to metastasis however Buffy is currently doing great. Because she is an older dog she is overlooked by most adopters. Buffy also isn't reliably housebroken but that's why piddle pads were invented!!

Danny - Joplin, MO ADOPTED!!

Meet Danny!  He is an 8 yr old, 17 lb neutered male Jack Russel Terrier.

Danny is a sweet and loving little guy. He is good with kids and other animals! He has been at our facility since January of 2019 when he was surrentdered because his owner lost his home. He is always overlooked because Danny has an enlarged heart, or Dilated Cardiomyopathy.  His heart is enlarged and can't pump as effectively but he's on a cheap medication that he happily takes daily.

He was housebroken when he was sent to the shelter but would just need some reminders since he's been living in a shelter environment.

Danny has a really cute personality and loves to be patted.  He is sometimes playful and likes to walk on a leash and go for long strolls.   Sometimes he just wants to be left alone to sleep (who doesn't?).

Danny had a dental in January and lost some teeth but eats dry food with no problem! For more information, please call:  417-623-0842 or email: goldenpawrescue@yahoo.com

Meet Rio!  He is a 5 yr old, 7 lb, male Chihuahua.

Rio is a darling 5 year old Applehead Chihuahua who was surrendered to us by a breeder when they were "done" using him as a stud. He is a sweet and  loving pup- loves to sit on you lap and cuddle. He also loves belly rubs! However his has been hit with some serious health issues - He was born with fontanel where the bones on the top of his head have not grown together so he has a soft spot on his head.

 

Our vet also diagnosed him with having a 4 out of 5 heart murmur and a 3 out of 5 luxating patella. We would love for someone to adopt him who could care for his needs and not put him in a risky situation with his soft spot. This dog has lots of love and life yet to give - can you give him some of yours?

Rio does well with small dogs and is hoping to find his forever family soon!  

Rio has no adoption limitations but the adopter would have to make all arrangements.  For all information, please call Golden Paw Animal Rescue 417-623-0842 or email : goldenpawrescue@yahoo.com.

Melbourne - Hilton Head Island, SC ADOPTED!!

This handsome senior is Melbourne!  He is an 11 yr old, 29 lb, neutered male Cattle Dog.

Sweet and gentle Melbourne was adopted from our organization as a pup.  Now, in his golden years, his owner took him to another local county shelter, claimed he was a stray, and left him there.  Thank goodness his microchip brought him back to us. 

 

Melbourne is so kind and loving, he is housebroken and is best only with cats.  He has a heart murmur and is heartworm positive which makes him risky to treat although an adopter could get this investigated further.  His right eye is completely sunken so he has some vision impairment which is the only reason we felt he might be nervous with young children.  He also has some changes in his kidney values on bloodwork so he is on a special diet. He loves to go for walks and walks very nicely on a leash.  He has become the office mascot but so deserves his own home!!  This is truly a lovely dog who will be adored in his forever home.

Contact information for people interested in Melbourne: Hilton Head Humane Association - 10 Humane Way Hilton Head, SC 29926 call: 843-681-8686,  email: adoptions@hhhumane.org.

Pineapple - Sacramento, CA ADOPTED!!

Meet Pineapple!  He is a 3 yr old, 75 lb, neutered male Labrador Retriever.

You guys, we have a celebrity in our midst!  Pineapple is an Instagram sensation and he is looking for his forever home.  First of all, let's get it out there that Pineapple is basically perfect.  He's your typical Lab who has never met a stranger and who loves everyone he meets.  

Pineapple does fine with other dogs (he lives with several), is pretty indifferent, and was fine on a cat meet and greet.  Know when Pineapple lights up??  When there are KIDS around!!  He loves all humans, especially those of the tiny variety!!

 

Pineapple is not paralyzed.  He has misshapen legs that cannot support him.  That said, he army crawls like a champ to get around and LOVES his chair.  Because he's not paralyzed, he requires NO special care to go to the bathroom and he is housebroken!! 

 

Here are some great bullet points about Pineapple:

- Housebroken! - (no accidents, but two small marks when he first moved in). He cannot lift his legs so pees ‘like a girl’

 

-Happy in his space! - *We haven’t tried him in a crate but he has a small area that’s baby-gated and he knows that’s his ‘housie’ and is happy to be there on his bed

-Exuberant about car rides and going places — a little excitable initially but settles down well

 

-Picky about treats (WHAT? A Lab?)

 

-Not a chewer

 

-Did not enjoy the lake, ignores pools but can’t promise he won’t fall in — DOES know how to swim but prefers not to (this is also his opinion about baths but did well at the groomer)

 

-Barks only when REALLY excited (when you come home) and is otherwise quiet

 

-Takes a REALLY CHEAP anti-inflammatory pill once a day (It’s called Meloxicam and it’s literally $12/YEAR as in $1/month) *Also needs to be on fish oil daily for joints which we get on Amazon. Otherwise he requires no more care than a typical dog. Joint Care food also would be helpful and can be purchased from your vet or Chewy.com with a prescription from your vet (or we can get you a prescription from our vet if you would like). \

 

-Has his own t-shirt and sweatshirt at https://tinyurl.com/pineappletee

 

-Has his own Amazon Wishlist at http://tinyurl.com/pineapplewish

 

-Has his own Instagram page @roll_like_pineapple .  We are really looking for a home who is willing to maintain and grow his Instagram account to spread awareness for special needs adoptions and the work we are doing. (If you are unable to maintain it yourself but would be willing to work with a volunteer who can, that would be fine) It would be nice if you were willing to encourage people who meet him to follow him, the rescue and buy a shirt to support our cause and use him as an ambassador for dogs with superpowers (special needs)

 

As far as your family dynamics -- working vs retired, adults only vs children... he's pretty adaptable and we feel that he would thrive in a variety of homes situations so let us know yours! He is fostered in the Sacramento Area of California. We are FLEXIBLE about location of adopters... BUT we are unable to transport using our regular method due to his size and his disability. But we are willing to try to make something work if his perfect home is far away. Ask and we will TRY to figure it out. We were on board with arranging adoptions in Ontario, Canada and Louisiana until those adopters got cold feet at the last minute.

 

We will consider foster-to-adopt for people within driving distance of Sacramento, CA if you are interested but aren't sure you can handle a dog with wheels (it's EASY).

 

Please send a DETAILED email to beourpet@gmail.com if you are interested in adopting him. Referrals from other rescue groups of qualified applicants/adopters are WELCOMED. We will honor approved applications from other groups in most cases. Please spread him and his story around to help him find a home. If you know Labrador people or wheelchair dog people, please make sure they see his post. We need many ambassadors spreading his love around to find his forever people

Deuce - Philadelphia, PA  ADOPTED!!

Meet Deuce!  He is a 10 yr old, 11 lb, neutered male short haired cat.

Two yeares. That's how long this personable and handsome senior has been waiting in the shelter for his forever family. He's as sweet as can be and loves attention from all of his human friends. Deuce is a pretty easy-going guy and would be a fantastic fit for pretty much any home. He is fine with other animals and loves all humans!

 

Deuce is a diabetic and simply requires a specialized diet and insulin shots twice a day. These injections are EASY, and he's a perfect boy for them. He also eats his special food like a rockstar.  Deuce is easy and fun to have around, it's such a shame he's been in a shelter for 2 years!

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

Prada - Philadelphia, PA ADOPTED!!

Meet Prada!  She is a 10 yr old, 7 lb, female spayed cat.

Hi there my name is Prada. I’m so happy to introduce myself and tell you about me.  My Foster Mom says I am the sweetest and bravest kitty she has ever fostered. 

 

I’m fine with other cats after being introduced to their smell for a while through a closed door first.  Foster mom has other cats I have met.  She has a dog too and I hear him bark – maybe I would be okay with a very calm pup.  I’m a super good girl with using my litter box and my most favorite thing is sitting and cuddling with my humans.  I love cuddling.

 

I came to the Pennsylvania SPCA when the nice Humane Law Enforcement officers rescued me from a bad situation.  I wasn’t being taken care of and I was very sick. They brought me to a place called Shelter Hospital.  The doctors and the nurses were so nice and they helped me a lot.  I did lose my eyesight and later they took out my useless eyeballs but I’m a kitty so I do really well with my other senses ….

 

My Foster mom took me home to recuperate because I’m a senior gal of 10+ and operations are hard on us older gals.  She sat with me and stroked my fur and it really helped me.  She says I was so brave but really I just want to live and do stuff. Since I am sightless it would be best if I had a quiet home where things don’t change too much.   

 

I know I’m different looking but I have lovely grey fur and I’m petite at about 7 pounds …Foster Mom says I’m pretty!  If you would like to meet me, please contact Foster mom Sheila at sheilacurtin22@comcast.net and she’ll make all the arrangements.  Thank you for reading my story.

Tyson - Philadelphia, PA  ADOPTED!!

Meet Tyson!  He is an 11 yr old, neutered male Pittie.

Oh sweetest Tyson. Before we say anything else, let us say that Tyson is literally perfect.  He is great with all people (including the tiny variety), animals, and he is housebroken.  This sweet angel was adopted from us as a young puppy 10 years ago. Sadly, his human was diagnosed with cancer, and was unable to continue caring for Tyson, so he made the heartbreaking decision to surrender him back to the shelter.

 

Tyson has age-related arthritis and is slow-moving.  He is a bit tubby (shh, don't tell him we said that) but is seriously as sweet as can be. Tyson gets along with everyone! He LOVES spending time with his people, and his favorite things are going for (slow) walks and sleeping with his little chin on his person's foot while they work. He's a true gem of a dog who does not need to be spending his golden days in a shelter. Let's find Ty-Ty a home!

For more information, please email mbernstein@pspca.org

Sheera - Boise, ID ADOPTED!!

Meet Sheera!  She is a 10 yr old, 5 lb, female spayed Chihuahua.

Sheera was pulled from West Valley Humane Society in January 2019. When she joined our rescue, she was extremely frail and we weren’t sure she was going to make it. When she was surrendered to West Valley, it was obvious she had been neglected for many years. She was thin and had a huge tumor on her vulva. West Valley was able to remove the tumor, but there is a chance that it will come back.

 

It took a few weeks for Sheera to recover from surgery…emotionally shut down and physically weak. Eventually, she gained strength and has been stable ever since. Sheera is completely blind, but can still hear.

 

She loves to be held and loves to burrow in blankets. She has to be carried outside for potty time. She loves spending time outside on sunny days, a typical sun worshipping Chihuahua. Sheera has very little teeth and can only eat canned food. She also has trouble waiting to go potty outside, which is why she is one of our hospice dogs that relies on pee pads for those times when she can’t wait.

 

Although she spends a great deal of time sleeping, she does enjoy spending time with her foster mom and loves to eat. Sheera is considered an “Adoptable Hospice dog” and IS AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION. She is maintaining her current health status and we are looking for a special someone to become her forever family for the remainder of her golden years. If you’re interested in adopting sweet Sheera please email us for an adoption application: greenheartrescue@gmail.com.

Pucca - Boise, ID ADOPTED!!

Meet Pucca!  She is a 10 yr old, 60 lb, female spayed Boxer.

Pucca is a 10 year old female boxer & is a cancer survivor!!  She had a sarcoma removed from her vulva at some point in the past with her previous owner.  Sarcomas tend to recur or metastasize but there's NO evidence of that yet!  She also has skin allergies that are a work in progress.

 

She is around 60 lbs, but is on the thin side (working on helping her gain some weight). She is a shy and timid girl that takes time to warm up to new people. Once she knows you, however, she will love you forever. Pucca lives in a foster home with another dog her size and two other small dogs. We aren’t sure how she would do in a home with cats.

 

She lived with kids in her previous home, but we would prefer to see her find a home without kids, preferably with people that either work from home or are retired. If you’re looking to add a sweetheart into your family, come meet Pucca! She will melt your heart!

 

To receive an adoption application for Pucca, please email us:Email us: greenheartrescue@gmail.com. Adopters will require a home visit.  

Snickers - Boise, ID ADOPTED!!

Meet Snickers!  He is an 11 yr old, 16 lb, neutered male rat terrier mix.

Snickers, here! I’m an 11 year old terrier mix and I’m looking for my forever home. You see I was left at a shelter because my last family didn’t have time for me. I come with LOTS of great qualifications!  I am a champion car rider; I love to take naps and short walks and can sleep in a crate or on the bed next to you. I’m only 16 pounds and I’m housebroken. I also like other dogs, they can make me feel safe and learn new house rules. And, I am the best squirrel and bird alerter! I let my foster mom know the pesky little devils are around by barking.

 

Of course. At 11 years old, I also have a few health conditions, who doesn’t? I’m completely deaf, but that doesn’t stop me telling the squirrels that I see them! I have a bit of arthritis in my joints so I take an inexpensive medicine to make me more comfortable. I also have the very beginnings of Cushing’s Disease. It makes me hungry all the time. I get treats of green beans and even ice cubes to help me feel full. A

 

re you my forever home? Do you want to meet me because I want to meet you! I’d prefer a home without children, but other dogs are fine! I’m not sure how I feel about cats!

 

To receive an adoption application for Snickers, please email us at greenheartrescue@gmail.com . We require a home check for potential adopters.

 

Background: Snickers was pulled from a Utah shelter in April 2019. He has had bloodwork, a through exam, X-rays & did not need a dental cleaning as his teeth are in great shape! Snickers needed x-rays because we were concerned about possible congestive heart failure with pain in one of his shoulders. Snickers’s x-rays showed that he has some arthritis in one of his shoulders, but fortunately does not have congestive heart failure-he does, however, have a mild heart murmur. He is on a daily, inexpensive anti-inflammatory for his arthritis.

Bella - Boise, ID ADOPTED!!!

Meet Bella!  She is a 10 yr old, 60 lb, female spayed Chocolate Lab mix.

Bella is a sweet, fun-loving, playful girl. She is almost entirely blind, although we think she can see either shapes or light. She still gets around very well! 

 

She will follow clicking or the sound of your voice to seek out attention. She gets along well with most dogs (will give a warning if she’s feeling crowded, which is respectable) land she loves children and people!  She likes going on car rides & walks. She does not need to go on long walks, a walk around a block or two is sufficient.

 

Bella’s blindness is very recent, cause unknown, and appeared to happen shortly before she came to our rescue in August 2019. As she is recently blind Bella does not like being left alone, and will howl sometimes if she’s left alone. We feel she does feel a little better with dog friends around and currently her foster family leaves music on for her when they leave.

 

She does take medicine for her thyroid, which is fairly inexpensive and easy to manage (2 pills a day) which she takes in a pill pocket. Previously Bella’s thyroid was not being managed, which caused her to be hungry all the time. This led to some counter-surfing and foraging through the garbage tendencies, which is easily managed with leaving temptations out of reach. She likes to chew on filled bones, and can “hunt” for them in the backyard. She will sometimes join in when other dogs in her foster home are barking and/or playing.

 

This sweet girl would be a loving companion for someone who has time for her and loves to give belly rubs. Once she finds you and gets attention (belly rubs!) she gifts you with the BEST smile. Does this girl melt your heart?! If so email us for an adoption application: greenheartrescue@gmail.com.

Dexter - North Wales, PA ADOPTED!! (1/10/20)

Meet Dexter! He is a 9 week old, male Doberman puppy.  His middle name should be ADORABLE!

First of all, can we all agree on what a cutie Dexter is??  It makes us sad because this beautiful, smushy little pup needs a very special home.

Dexter was found to have a heart murmur and was taken to a cardiologist. He was diagnosed with severe pulmonic stenosis and mild tricuspid regurgitation.  Pulmonic stenosis is a congenital condition (a birth defect) involving the right ventrical, pulmonic valve, and pulmonary artery.  This is the third most common congenital heart defect found in dogs.  

Unfortunately, while dogs with mild cases can live a normal life, Dexter's case is severe.  He is likely to have clinical signs associated with this problem, he will need to live on meds for his life, and is may to go into heart failure.  There IS a procedure that can be done to open up the flow of the heart and prevent severe complications like heart failure!  It is called a balloon valvuplasty.

Balloon valvuloplasty is performed under general anesthesia by a cardiologist - many busy referal hospitals do this routinely and successfully!!  It's not a "weird" or rare procedure.  A small incision is made and a catheter is introduced and advanced into the right side of the heart. Intracardiac pressure measurements are taken. A balloon is placed across the abnormal region. The balloon is then inflated with dye and stretches the leaflets of the valve apart, allowing much more normal blood flow! 

Dexter is going to need a home who is committed to handling his heart problem but one look at that face tells you that he will give back more than he is ever given!! For more information about Dexter, please email:  Homeatlastdogrescue@yahoo.com

Sage - SF Bay Area, CA ADOPTED! (1/12/20)

Meet Sage!  She is a 12 yr old, 7 lb, female long-haired Chihuahua.

Sage is just adorable!  She is a happy, tail wagging, love bug who loves to be with her person. She is good with other animals, housebroken, leash trained and eats well. She is free of parasites, has had senior blood work and dental cleaning with extractions.

 

Unfortunately, Sage had to have a mammary tumor removed . It is not known if this was cancer but the vet expects the tumor to return and she is considered a hospice pet.  Please send inquiries to the Umbrella of Hope Director at: beourpet@gmail.com. Sage is available for transported to the perfect home.

Thomas - Kinston, NC ADOPTED!!

Meet Thomas!!  He is a 3-5 yr old, neutered male cat who weighs in at 12 lbs.

Thomas is hands-down the coolest cat!  He is the most loving boy in the shelter! Thomas arrived as a sweet stray. We could see he was someone very special! He is HIGHLY social, very loving, VERY attentive to people. He deserves a better chance than to live in a shelter cage.

 

Thomas has been waiting unfairly long due to testing FeLv positive. He arrived with abscesses on his back most likely caused by deep bite wounds. It was no surprise for this test result. Thomas was promptly evaluated and treated by our vet. He is ALL healed and all his fur has grown back nicely like nothing even happened! Thomas is a hands-down staff favorite! All he wants and needs is someone with that special heart to realize how wonderful he is.

 

Someone to come and meet him, and not afraid to take him home and cuddle with him for the rest of his days! He is perfectly well and asymptomatic at this time. He could have many happy years ahead! Thomas will make a FANTASTIC bed buddy. He is perfectly perfect and going strong (it's like he doesn't know what all the fuss is about!). He also doesn't know why all the other kitties keep getting their forever homes and- still he gets overlooked.

 

Please- we know there's a special person for this special kitty. Thomas is a full adult. He is possibly 3-5 years old. He is fully litterbox trained. He is neat and clean and so friendly. He cuddles, he gives kisses, he drools while he's being loved on. He loves the lap or he would also love an independent lifestyle containing a cat tree. Thomas needs and wants to be wanted again. Help Thomas find his way out of the shelter. He has waited many months (we don't want to give up on him!) and is now competing with kittens!!!!!! Thomas has had all the work done. He is neutered, fully vaccinated, FIV negative and he is microchipped. Please inquire for extra pictures!  For more information:= please email Susan Picard at susanpicard79@gmail.com or call 252 686-6284.

Summer - Lincoln, NE ADOPTED!!(updated 1/25/20)

Meet Summer!  She was born at the end of May 2019, and is a spayed female Calico cat. These are both kitten and updated photos as of 1/25/20.

Summer is such an adorable kitten and has the coolest markings...her left leg looks like a sleeve tattoo! How awesome is that!?! She will be the talk of the town and definitely needs her own instagram page. Superstardom is definitely in her future!

 

Summer loves people and starts purring as soon as she sees them. She does wonderful with other pets and people of all ages. She literally LOVES the dog she lives with, they play and cuddle all of the time! She is just sweet as pie, and such a beautiful kitten! Summer is a Calico-Tabby kitten and was born approximately 5-25-19. She is spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, given flea/tick preventative, and dewormed.

 

She tested positive for feline leukemia (FeLV) so needs to be an only cat or live with cats who are also FeLV+. Adoption fee is $100 to help offset the many expenses we have for vetting costs. We rely strictly on adoption fees and donations to continue to save the lives of orphaned & abandoned pets; 100% goes towards their care.

For all information, please email: dollyslegacyadoptions@gmail.com or visit the website: www.DollysLegacyAnimalRescue.org

Shaquille - Philadelphia, PA ADOPTED!!

This is Shaquille aka Shaq!  He is a 6 yr old neutered male short haired cat who weighs 9 lbs.  

Shaq is a talented man who was found in the parking lot of PAWS' Grays Ferry clinic...right in the heart of the city of Philadelphia.  Just like his namesake, he demonstrated impressive running and dodging skills, before going straight into the net.

 

Nowadays, he's more of a retired athlete who spends his days lying in the windowsill of his foster home, though he still enjoys the occasional workout with his toys and scratching post. Shaq is a bit of a shy boy who might run away and hide at first, but if you wait for him to come to you (and maybe offer some tuna) he will let you brush him and scratch his head endlessly.

 

He’s a pretty chill guy who would do best in a calm home with people (and even cats) who will be patient as he adjusts to his new surroundings. He's a sweet and sensitive boy who will keep you entertained with his adorable way of playing and reward you with all the affection!

 

Shaquille has kidney disease and is considered a hospice case. We would love to find him a forever home that can provide him with the care and comfort he needs in the time he has left.   Shaq has been in the shelter for over a year... he's in foster now but it's time for him to find his forever home!!   We know there's someone out there who will bring him home and let him hang out and enjoy his life.  For more information, please email: lauren@phillypaws.org

Dusty (mama), Flannel (grey kitten), and Cotton (white kitten)  - Coatesville, PA  ADOPTED!!
Smokey and BoJangles - Clarence, NY ADOPTED!!

These two sweethearts are BoJangles and Smokey.  Smokey is the grey/light tortoiseshell, she is a 15 yr old female spayed long haired kitty who weighs 6 lbs.  BoJangles is the orange guy, he is a 15 yrs old neutered male who weighs 10 lbs.  Both are indoor cats, are declawed, and litterbox trained.

These are hero cats!  They warned their owner when their house was on fire and flooding!  The cats originally belonged to one family for five years who then had to move out of the country so they have been with another loving mom the past ten years.  Unfortunately their current mom has some health issues and is moving to Florida to be with family and that family has severe allergies to cats.  The original family lives in California so can't take them back.

Smokey loves to be up high on shelves or doors, but is content just to hang around anywhere. She is gentle and sweet.

BoJangles loves to be close by, but also takes a bit of time to warm up. He is content to be with his sister or just hanging out in a warm spot. He is gentle and cuddles, but takes time to adjust to change.

They need a solution quickly, so if anybody would like more information, please call or text:716-465-9469  or email: openears2u@gmail.com .

Merlin - Port Haywood, VA ADOPTED!

Meet Merlin!  He is a 12-13 yr old, 12 lb neutered male cat.

Merlin is a lovely senior cat who was removed from a home because of inhumane living conditions. He is a sweet boy and very affectionate.

 

Merlin had a soft-tissue sarcoma removed about 11 months ago. This is a cancerous mass.  The prognosis is that there was a good chance it would resurface in 7-9 months but he is now 11 months out with no sign of a new tumor.

 

He is FIV/FeL negative and up on vaccinations. If the tumor returns and the foster wants it removed, we will pay to do that. Meanwhile he would love to spend his time in a home rather than a cage in a shelter!! Merlin is good with other animals and with kids. 

If you would open your home to Merlin, please call: 804-695-7772  or email: doryruth2@gmail.com.  Merlin's rescue would like him to stay relatively local.  

Bubba - Roseland, LA ADOPTED!!(8/9/19)

Meet Bubba!  He is a 10 yr old, 50 lb, neutered male good old American mix.  You have got to watch his video!

Bubba is an absolutely wonderful dog who is a victim of location. He lives in a shelter that is so rural, the nearest town doesn't even have a stoplight. The shelter is a no-kill sanctuary for the throwaways of our area, and there are always a lot of those. The few volunteers are so busy caring for the daily needs of the dogs that no one really has the time to get good pictures and post dogs online. Bubba has been at his shelter for 10 years! 

I have been taking a dog out for a day and doing a video of the day. During that day, the dog will be cat, child, and other dog tested. Bubba passed all tests with flying colors! He proved to be great with other dogs,a dog-savvy cat, and kids on his day out.  Watch his video and see what kind of dog he is for yourself. He's wonderful!  Because Bubba has lived his entire life in a rescue, he is not housebroken.  We know that with attentive owners, he can figure this out!  VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dq35JhRpjic&t=3s

Milo - Kennesaw, GA ADOTPED!!

Meet Milo! He is a 1.5 yr old, 8 lb, neutered male orange tabby cat.

My name is Milo and I want to tell you about myself. I’m a year and a half old cat that is looking for my furever home. I love head butting and receiving cuddles and kisses from my humans. When I think I’m not getting enough attention I’ll talk and reach out to whomever is near to make sure they notice me!

 

I’m an easy going, laid back kind of guy that just wants to be fed and loved. My current residence is an animal clinic where everyone is taking care of me and I don’t have to do a thing. I can be as lazy as I want and sleep all day. I’m not a big fan of the other animals that I see coming and going here at all so I’m thinking I should be the only animal in the house or at the very least have my own lovely space.

 

Unfortunately, I’ve been told I have asthma. The doctors and techs at my clinic have to put Prednisolone in my ear once a day and it apparently helps with my coughing! I still cough sometimes but not nearly as much as I use to. All I need now is a home and people to call my own.

Oreo - Champaign, IL ADOPTED!! (1/4/20 still available)

This adorable tuxedo guy is Oreo!  He is a 13 years old, neutered male cat.

Oreo is a friendly, lovable, front-declawed hefty boy.  At 17 lbs, we call him "double-stuffed Oreo"--like the cookie.  

Oreo does great at all our adoption events.  Kids can hold and hug this friendly tuxedo boy.  He is great with kids, people and other cats. Oreo's current foster has a dog and he is adjusting well with someone bigger than him.   Oreo is a special needs cat because he has type 1 diabetes and takes insulin twice a day. He has been insulin dependent for six years and takes his shots really well. People are interested in Oreo until they hear about the shots but they are truly NO big deal.  Oreo has been with HospiceHearts.org for almost 18 months, in a foster setting, located in Champaign, Illinois. He would make a wonderful addition to any home!

For more information you can email the rescue:  hospiceheartsanimalrescue@gmail.com or contact the Cat Adoption Coordinator at: debby.hospicehearts@gmail.com.

Sammy - Brooklyn, NY (1/25/20) ADOPTED!

Meet Sammy!  He is assumed to be around 8 yrs old, weighs 10 lbs, and is a neutered male.

LOVE IS BLIND! Sammy is a blind 8-year-old cat who was dumped in Bay Ridge, NY back in November 2019. We have no idea how anyone could have done that to him..he is a love mush! He craves all the attention, and he purrs really loud! He should be in a household with no small children, and he should be the only cat. Sammy is up to date on shots, FIV/FELV negative, and fixed. This calm soul is looking for his second chance at life!  

Here's some video of Sammy! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q7tD8vAg-Ms&feature=youtu.be

His rescue would like him to stay within the tri-state area but anyone with interest should reach out!  For all information, please email jbubley@gmail.com. 

Mocha - Hannibal, MO ADOPTED!!

Meet Mocha!  Mocha is a 7 yr old, 8 lb spayed female cat.

Poor Mocha has been with her rescue for 9 months!  She was diagnosed with melonoma of the eye in June and it makes her look a little funny but it is not expected to cause any negative effects unless it gets extremely large.  Add that to the fact that she's a black cat which people don't want, and nobody has even inquired about her. 

 

This is really too bad because Mocha is adorable!! She is extremely affectionate and likes to lounge around most of the day. The more attention the better! She loves to give hugs and be carried around...she's a kitty who thinks she's a parrot! She cannot go to a home with other cats but she does fine with small dogs.

If you would like more information on Mocha, please call: 573-795-9840 or 573-719-3930 or email: cuddlecatrescue@gmail.com.

Ozark - Hannibal, MO ADOPTED!!

Meet adorable Ozark!  She is a 1 yr old, female spayed, 7 lb kitty.

She is one of the most playful, energetic, loving black cats we have right now. She has one heck of a personality!  Ozark is mildly special needs because she had her leg broken at 6 months old and needed to have it pinned. She walks and runs great now but she does need to lay down and occasionally because it will always be a bit weaker than her good leg. She is often overlooked because she is black and has a bum leg even though it does not limit her too much. 

Ozark would be fine as an only kitty but would also probably be okay with another cat who doesn't directly engage her very much.  Come and meet this sweet girl!  For more information please call: 573-795-9840 or 573-719-3930 or email: cuddlecatrescue@gmail.com.

Frost - Hannibal, MO ADOPTED!!

This gorgeous guy is Frost.  He is an 8 yr old, 8 lb, neutered male Manx.

 

Frost is one of the most laid back and friendly cats I have ever seen!! He will let you pick him up and hold him in any position. He gets along with every cat and dog that have ever came in to our rescue. He is Mr. Mayor and kind of runs around the place. He likes to coo and meow at you for attention.

Poor Frost had a femur that was broken into many pieces at the top, so he had surgery to have the broken parts removed. He walks now but he always uses that leg in a circular motion which is just his way of dealing with the affect to the joint!

 

Frost also has renal insufficiency but we have not had any luck getting him to eat the food that he needs so we feed him the best diet we can that he will eat - his blood work does look good but he did have elevations in BUN and Creatinine which did suggest the renal insufficiency. No are medications needed at this time. He is very healthy otherwise than he drinks quite a bit of water and does need a break every now and again because of his leg surgery.

For more information on this gorgeous cat, please call: 573-795-9840 or  573-719-3930 or email: cuddlecatrescue@gmail.com.

 

Cookie - Phoenix, AZ ADOPTED!!

This adorable sweet pea is Cookie!  She is a 3 yr old, 8 lb, female spayed Dachshund.

Cookie is a spunky little girl and super sweet. She is a tiny 8lb typical dachshund who loves to always be with people. Cookie loves to snuggle and get belly rubs and be near you at all times.

 

She gets along well with other dogs, big or small, with proper introductions and we do not know how she would do with cats. Her hind end is paralyzed from a past trauma and she is incontinent. She also had to have her tail amputated. She gets around extremely well in her wheelchair cart and drag bag.

 

She also has some separation anxiety that we are working on. She would do best in a home with no young children. We are looking for an adopter who is a current resident of Arizona, has experience with incontinent paralyzed dogs, has plenty of time to attend to her diaper changing and bladder expressing needs, and tons of never ending love to give her. This special girl deserves the very best! If you think that could be you, please email info@maydaypitbullrescue.org

Stevie - Chappell, NE ADOPTED!

Meet Stevie!  She is a 1 yr old, 8 lb, female spayed short haired cat.

Stevie is an adorable, friendly cat who loves attention!  We’re looking for a very special home for this sweet kitty. This girl is almost a year old and missing her left eye. She has limited vision in her right eye but not enough to be an indoor/outdoor cat. Some of our youth volunteers named this girl Stevie not only because she shares Stevie Wonder’s loss of eye sight but also because this amazing cat sings. When she hops out of her kennel into your arms she begins to chirp and purr. Stevie adores attention! Stevie is spayed and UTD on her vaccines. If you think you could give this precious girl an indoor home please reach out-she deserves the absolute best!  For more information please call the Adopt-A-Dog Animal Rescue, Inc. (16724 Hwy 30 Chappell NE 69129) at 308-890-0045.  Stevie's rescue would like her to stay within 200 miles of her rescue.  

Apollo - Lansing, MI ADOPTED!

Meet Apollo! He is a 3-4 month old, male kitten.  

I've never seen a kitten with the confidence to pull of that sweater!!  Oh this kitten is just a blast!  Not only can Apollo wear a Christmas sweater with aplomb, he is a hilarious, outgoing typical kitten!!

He did test positive for FIV, he will be retested to make sure it wasn't a false positive since that can happen at his age.  If it is positive on re-test, it is important to remember that 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. They don't need any special care or medication, just an indoor lifestyle and regular check-ups with a veterinarian. The thinking has also changed on how easily the virus can be 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.

Apollo is available for adoption within Michigan. For more information about Apollo click here to fill out an application and someone will contact you! https://www.shelterluv.com/matchme/adopt/ZADE/Cat

Captain Steve - Eaton Rapids, MI ADOPTED!!

Meet Captain Steve!  He is a 10 yr old, 12 lb, neutered male cat.

Captain Steve is and handsome dude who is fine with other animals and with all people!

 

He is FIV+ but is doing great at the age of 10! He needs a home who will keep him groomed and brushed often!

Cats with FIV don't need any special care or medication, just an indoor lifestyle and regular check-ups with a veterinarian. The thinking has also changed on how easily the virus can be 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.

Wheaties - Molalla, OR ADOPTED!!

This stunning guy is Wheaties!   We think he looks like a miniature senior panther.  Wheaties is a 12 yr old, 12 lb neutered male cat.  

Like the breakfast of champions, 12 year old Wheaties is a true classic. You'd never know that this handsome senior kitty has lived a tough outdoor life, one that would have left many cats with a chip on their shoulders and no room in their heart for human companionship.

 

Since he came to the village, there hasn't been a hand that he doesn't want petting him, a lap he doesn't want to sit on, or a face he doesn't want to enthusiastically bump. No one is a stranger to this one, his love knows no boundaries, he considers everyone a friend and the disposition Wheaties chooses is sweet and gentle.

 

In fact, the only serious thing about Wheaties is the gratitude he intends to show every human he meets... he's truly an inspiration wrapped in a breath of fresh air. Somewhere along the way, he also developed impeccable house manners and blends in perfectly with other cats, kiddos and even those pesky dogs.

 

Anyone looking for a reason to smile should meet Wheaties and consider bringing him into their family, there is no doubt that this boy will show you the true meaning of friendship. Wheaties is in the early stages of renal failure. His foster is available to set up a meet and greet, but we must warn you, Wheaties is going to do his very best to charm you into taking him home.  If you are interested in more information about Wheaties, please call 503.939.2480 or email: meowvillage@comcast.net.

Snow - Makawao, HA ADOPTED!

Meet Snow!  She is an 8 yr old, 8 lb, female spayed white kitty.

Snowy is a sweet, loving girl who would love to be your lap kitty. She had ear cancer. Ear and Nose cancer is common in the tropics especially amongst white cats or cats with pink noses. She had surgery to remove most of her ears about 6 years ago. The cancer has NOT returned.

 

Snowy MUST be indoor-only kitty. Direct sunlight could stimulate the cancer to return. She is also a little hard of hearing. She has no bad. habits and gets along with other kitties!

 

 We are willing to send her by plane if there is no more than one change of planes or you can come to Maui and bring her home in the cabin with you. You can reach me on my cell phone 808 866 3049 9th Life Hawaii www.9thlifehawaii.org

Hickory - Cloverdale, IN ADOPTED!!

Meet Hickory!  Hickory is a courtesy post because he's pretty young and healthy for our website but we are happy to network him and hopefully help him find a forever home!!

Hickory is a 5-6 yr old 30 lb Mini-Aussie/beagle looking guy!  He's so cheerful!! He is guessed at about 5 or 6 years old, and gets on well with other dogs and people. He would like to have another dog in his home (if he is left alone for more than an hour or two a day) and a physical fence as he enjoyed life on the run a little too much and we want him to be safe and contained when he is out.

 

Hickory does not enjoy being alone and will need a good solid crate and some time to settle into living in his new home, but he has lots of love to give! Someone who is home the majority of the day is his ideal home. Hickory does not get on well with cats, or rabbits and other such small and fluffies but does just fine with all dogs. 

 

Unfortunately Hickory is prone to seizures which don't seem to have much cause other than they can be triggered by too much stress at times. We are managing his seizures with herbal chews daily and inexpensive gabapentin as needed when we place him in situations that may stress him out. But they can be random as well. Because they are rare (about one a month or so) the vet feels he does not need to be on anti-seizure meds daily. The rescue can answer any questions you may have, and we fully expect Hickory to live a very normal happy life despite his seizures. Hickory's adoption fee is $75  For more information about Hickory, please email: info@4pups.org , visit www.facebook.com/4pupsrescue  or call: 317-899-8483

Autumn - Champlin, MN ADOPTED!!!

Meet Autumn!  She is a 1 yr old, 6 lb, female spayed cat.

Autumn is a beautiful girl who was born with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy which is a heart condition. The vets at the University of MN had never seen it in a kitten so young. She was diagnosed on Dec 21st, 2018 when she was 4 months. The veterinarians said she would probably only live 6 months. However, she is now just over a year and doing very well.

 

She is on 5 medications a day and doesn't even act sick. We do know that though that she is not going to be able to be adopted and it does get hard on her having to adjust to new animals coming into foster care. She can be a little shy with new people and takes a couple days to adjust to new cats, but otherwise does well with them.

 

She was exposed to a small old quiet dog in her first foster home and did well. The biggest concern for her is to have minimal stress. She still loves to play. And while she doesn't like to be carried around, she will sit on your lap for as long as you let her. :) She is a beautiful sweet kitty who deserves nothing but the best loving home!

For all further information, please contact Julie Jensen 612-747-1575 or email at info@thekittenscradle.org.  Her rescue would like her to stay relatively local to their location.

Liam - Brookfield, CT ADOPTED! (3/1/20) 

Meet Liam! He is a 2 yr old, 70 lb, gorgeous neutered male German Shepherd dog.

Liam's story with us began when he was rescued from a high kill shelter in Texas and taken to vet's office to stay for a while while all of his problems were assessed and addressed. He had a prolapsed penis, sever ear infection, possible fractured pelvis, skin infection, high white blood cell count, his body score was a 2 and he was having trouble walking.

 

Fast forward to today - we believe that Liam is ready to find his forever family. He has been through a lot with 5 surgeries and so we are hoping that we can find a patient, understanding and loving family. Liam does have an altered gait - he had zero leg muscles when we rescued him but as he gets out for exercise his gait improves. He has abilities that normal dog has he is constantly improving.  When he first comes out for some exercise, he appears to walk on tip toes but this improves as he moves around.

He is not a very active dog,  he is is a boy that is desperate for love and attention and is trying to learn how a dog is supposed to act when someone shows him love. He would be great with someone who wants to turn a caterpillar into a butterfly.   He likes to snuggle up on soft things, he favorite spot is a bolster bed. He has not realized what a toy is yet, but we are trying.  He is a dog that an older couple would love and appreciate to take out on slow strolls.  He loves to be praised and talked to. 

We would like to see him be an only dog because we suspect in his former life he has been denied the love he so deserves and we don't want him to have to share right now.  He is housebroken. 

For all information, please email: barbara@ark-charities.org or call:  Tina 203-830-9774

Trinity - Blue Bell, PA  ADOPTED!!(2/2/20)

Meet Trinity!  She is a 5 month, 17 lb, female, Sheba Inu.

Trinity is a precious 5 month old Shiba Inu. This breed has a very loyal fan base because of its devotion to their family. Trinity is looking for a special family to provide her with unconditional love for as long as her little heart keeps going. You see, this poor little pup was born with a congenital defect called Pulmonic Stenosis (PS). This happy little active pup has no idea that she has a serious illness. She loves other dogs and enjoys playing fetch with her foster mom. She is a very loving little girl who is both crate trained and housebroken.

Unfortunately, while dogs with mild cases can live a normal life, sweet Trinity's is severe.  She is likely to have clinical signs associated with this problem, will need to live on meds for life, require follow ups with a cardiologist, and may to go into heart failure.  If the finances are there, there IS a procedure that can be done to open up the flow of the heart and prevent severe complications like heart failure!  It is called a balloon valvuplasty.

Balloon valvuloplasty is performed under general anesthesia by a cardiologist - many busy referal hospitals do this routinely and successfully!!  It's not a "weird" or rare procedure.  A small incision is made and a catheter is introduced and advanced into the right side of the heart. Intracardiac pressure measurements are taken. A balloon is placed across the abnormal region. The balloon is then inflated with dye and stretches the leaflets of the valve apart, allowing much more normal blood flow! 

We are looking for that special unicorn adopter willing to love Trinity and care for her for whatever time she has.  If you can do the surgery, that is great but it is NOT a requirement to adopt her.  She deserves a loving home and will give back so much more than she is given!  So if you are looking for or need a little blonde angel in your life, please email her foster mom:  samamajen13@aol.com.
