Mary – Needs a home!

Mary-II-241x300Mary-III-165x300Mary

 

“Meet Miss Mary” – Needs Adopter ASAP!

Lovely Miss Mary is a sweet and gentle female Black Lab mix with some white accent coloring on her chest and the tips of her toes. She is about 3 years old and a nice manageable size with a build a bit smaller than a typical Lab. She is spayed and up-to-date on her shots. She does fine with other dogs and mostly just wants a loving home of her own!

Sadly Mary and her daughter found themselves Out of Time on Death Row at a small rural over-crowded shelter in Socal. Mary’s pup got adopted from the shelter and she was left behind. When the shelter rescue contact told us about this lovely Lab mix girl, we knew we had to step up and help save her, to give her a chance for her own forever home too!

 

Mary is currently in a temporary foster but needs an adopter ASAP. She has stolen the hearts of her foster family, who say she is just the most sweet and easy girl. She gets along fine with the other dogs in her foster home (cats Unknown) and enjoys being with kids and adults of all ages.

 

She is not high energy, and would enjoy some basic exercise like daily walks and yard play time. She does fairly well walking on a leash, although will need a bit more training because she can still be a “puller” sometimes. Overall she is a friendly and happy girl who enjoys being with her humans, just hanging out or being a “coach potato”.

If you could be a good match for Mary and can open your heart and home to Adopt her, please contact us ASAP by email: pets.katrina@gmail.com

 

Please include some background information re where you are located, your best contact tel. number and the type of home/lifestyle you could offer Mary.
Also please FIRST confirm that ALL family/household members and/or Landlord are in agreement with adding a dog to your home.

 

Thank you for looking to rescue for your next canine family addition!

 

Delilah – Needs a long term foster/ home URGENT!!

“MEET DARLING DELILAH!” – Needs Full Time Foster/Adopter Who Is Home A Lot

 

Delilah is a 2.5 year old delightful female black Lab mix.  She’s a very pretty girl and fairly big, weighing about 90 lbs.  She is a happy, affectionate dog, the best companion, and does well with toddlers and adults alike, and a protector of her home.  She loves going for a walk but she’s fairly low-energy, just requiring some regular exercise like daily short walks.

Delilah is currently in a temporary foster home and this is what her foster says about her:

Delilah is a sweet and loving dog that does best having people around her most of the time, as she really likes having constant company. We think she would need a home with either someone who is mostly home through the day or can take her most places with them. She also seems to do best in a low stress environment.

Her temporary foster home is a multi-generational family, so there is always lots of people around. She is doing well in that environment and enjoys being with people of all ages.  She is also doing great with the foster’s dogs, which are both medium and large size dogs. She does seem to have some prey drive and a desire to chase cats, so would need a home with NO cats or small critters.

Delilah is not a high energy dog, but would enjoy some regular outdoor exercise (ie. casual walks, hikes, or maybe swims etc), mostly for her “mental health” and general well-being. She will need someone who is willing to spend time working on her basic training, and sometimes she can be strong-willed, so her owner will need to be prepared to work with that too. She does fairly well walking on a leash – she has been a bit of a “puller”  but is doing better with that now.

If you’re looking for a truly devoted companion to have by your side day and night, and can provide a fairly low stimulus environment, then Delilah is your girl! She’s so full of love  - she will be an amazing friend for life!

If you are interested in fostering or adopting Delilah and think you can offer her the kind of home she needs, please contact us ASAP by emailing: pets.katrina@gmail.com

 

*** Note: Please include some background information regarding the type of home you could offer Delilah, your typical lifestyle, and your location and best contact tel. number.

Also please FIRST confirm that ALL family/household members and/or Landlord is in agreement with adding a dog to your home.

We are an all-volunteer rescue but will follow up with you as quickly as possible.

 

 

 

Thank you for considering to provide a loving home for this very special girl!

Drake – needs a home ASAP!

Drake IIDrake IIIDrake IV

MEET DRAKE – NEEDS ADOPTER ASAP!

DRAKE IS IN  A TEMPORARY BOARDING/KENNEL SITUATION,  URGENTLY  NEEDS  COMPETENT MATCHING HOME!

Drake is a herding breed and has shown great interest in chasing small animals or rodents, those inquiring about Drake should have herding dog experience.

Drake is a lovely tan Shepherd/ Husky Mix.  Drake is an athletic boy who would make an excellent hiking or jogging buddy. He gets along fine with other dogs but can get concerned about protecting his food and treats (no wonder, this poor boy was abandoned by his owners and had to fend for himself) – so if he has another doggie house…mate, he would do best to be fed separately.

Ultimately we’d like to find him a forever home, could you be that special person?? Please contact us for more information on this gorgeous boy Drake.
