Stash is a 9 yr
old purebred registered Chihuahua.
He is neutered and very healthy with clean white teeth. He just wants to be someone’s lap dog
Doc is between 4 and 5 yrs old and waiting for the perfect
home! Doc is an 80 lb purebred Old English Sheepdog. He appears to be
housebroken and Doc will do best having access to air conditioning as he
was left in brutal heat for long periods and loves his new life with
AC! We think he looks just like a
Disney character! He is neutered,
microchipped and heartworm negative.
Doc loves everyone and gets along well with other dogs. He would also do well as an only! Doc and his pal were in a very difficult
situation as they were very hot and had no room to exercise or get
cool. Doc is great with people of all ages and loves to play ball.
Give us a call or fill out an application if interested.
Wyatt is a 3-3.5
year old, 90 lb, male, Anatolian Shepherd.
He is neutered and gentle with people. He seems to be very "chill"
with other dogs, and no info on cats.
He does not seem to have any "prey" instincts which is
good. Wyatt was living in deplorable
conditions with his buddy, Doc (see above), and needs time to regrow thin
hair and build muscles.
Petunia and Nellie
Petunia is a
6 lb Deer Head Chihuahua who is spayed and up to date on shots.
She does not seem to be housebroken yet, but with patience I am sure she
will come around. Petunia is not
nippy like some Chihuahuas and is very loving and sweet. Isn't she adorable??
Petunia and Daisy, now known as Nellie, have become a bonded
pair and we would like for them to be adopted together. Nellie is a 10 lb
Coton de Tulear. She is gentle and
sweet and 6 years old. Until Petunia came along, Nellie was too scared
of everyone and everything but now she is blooming. However, she follows
Nellie everywhere and has gained her self confidence.
Prolo is an odd name, for sure.
However, he was rescued by the staff of an orthopedic clinic and
this is a shot they give to restart your system. Hence the name meaning a new start to his
life. Prolo ran into the street and
was hit by a car and his leg severely injured. Upon returning to his home, his
owner dragged him and blamed him for being hit, closed the door and left
him outside bleeding profusely.
Animal Control was called and the owner said he was a stray. He ended up
in the local shelter but before they could diagnose his leg, my husband
intervened and said SCARS would accept him.
What followed has been about 12 trips to the vet and emergency
clinic where his leg has been bandaged and cleaned, the bone still
visible. However, he is mending well
and we hope he will be up and at ‘em soon.
Prolo is a Lab/Pit mix who is about two years old and neutered. He has no aggression at all and loves
people and all sizes of dogs. (NO information on cats) He weighs about 70 lbs and is very
strong. He would do well on a
harness and or a gentle lead collar.
We all love this boy and are so glad he has been saved/.
Charlie is a neutered, 12 lb, male Minpin mix. He has survived rat poison, pancreatitis
and come out of it healthy and strong.
Charlie loves to play, play, play and runs around with other dogs here as if each one is his
best friend. He is fine with cats
and kids and is about 2 years old.
Charlie is Mr. Personality… you will love him!
Ellie May is a one year old, has been spayed and her cherry eye
removed. She loves to run and play
in spite of her deformed leg and shoulder, which is a birth defect. She
weighs 12 lbs and loves everyone. It will take a patient home for her with
another fun dog.
Bentley and Scruffy
and Scruffy (right) are two of what we call the "Freedom
Five." They were in a condemned
house for months on end, with a vat of dry food and water full of
rats. Needless to say, it was a
nightmare life. But we have had them
here for two months and they are adjusting well. Bentley is probably a Fox Hound mix, 40
lbs, neutered and probably not housebroken.
Scruffy is some sort of male, Wirehaired Terrier mix, 40
lbs, neutered and probably not housebroken either. They are loving and sweet but not
young. We are guessing their ages to
be around 6 or 7 years old. Both
would be fine in the country or just a quiet life with a family who will
love them. They do not have to be
together! Please consider one of
them as you will be adopting a true rescue.
Oreo: male from
abandoned , rat infested home
Blondie: 6 year
old spayed female who was left in the rat infested home and seems to be the
friendliest of these three. She is
timid around strangers and would require patience and time to heal.
a two year old mix of some sort. Our
best guess is Pittie/Boxer/Boston Terrier.
She is very friendly and there is no aggression with other
animals. We do not have cats,
but I doubt she would bother them but if that is the primary concern,
please pass. Also, she is waiting to
be spayed but is up to date on all shots and heartworm negative. Cookie is lively but settles down nicely
in the house.
Olivia is a
timid Husky/Shepherd mix. She is 8
months old and waiting to be spayed. Olivia weighs about 40 lbs and we are
trying to put weight on her. She
will need a quiet, patient home where she can relax and not be so scared.
