Jade and Jasper
Jade and Jasper
are two purebred rat terriers. Jade
is 5 months old, spayed and weighs about 9 lbs. Jasper is 1 1/2 years old, neutered and
weighs about 12 lbs. We would like
for them to be adopted as a pair as their mom recently passed away quite
unexpectedly. We do not know if they
are housebroken, but chances are they might be as they have been
inside dogs. Both were in training
to be therapy dogs when they lost their mom. They are wonderful and loving!
Luke and Larry
Luke and Larry have been
adopted. Check back for their
Larry (left and
right) is an (almost) 2 year old, 20 lb, male Silky Terrier. He is neutered
and up to date on shots He is the dad of Luke (belwo) who is 5 months
and also neutered but smaller...probably 12 lbs. They are both outgoing
on lovable and seem to get along with everyone. They can be adopted
out separately or together! Larry is the darker of the two, and Luke is
smaller and lighter.
Biscuit is an 8
month old, male Dachshund/Chihuahua mix.
He is neutered, and up to date on shots. Biscuit LOVES other dogs and needs to go
to a home where he can have a doggie playmate. He is shy at first, but once he gets to
know you, he will bond quickly.
Biscuit weighs ten pounds but is a bit thin - we are working on that.
These pups have been adopted. Please check back for their Success
We have three
beautiful Cavapoo pups rescued from a breeder. They are now 14 weeks,
spayed and neutered, and have had two rounds of puppy shots from the
vet. These dogs do not shed and will never get more than ten
pounds. We recommend homes with another dog and they LOVE big dogs....I
think they make them feels safe. They have wonderful, friendly
ThiOne of these
Cavapoos (which is a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel/Poodle mix) weighs 5 lbs
and is neutered already! He has had
his puppy shots, loves people and other dogs. Puppy is what we are calling him now but
surely he will get a new name when he is adopted!!
Ellie May: recovering from surgery. 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. Ellie
Mae underwent spinal surgery at K State and is fully recovered. Although
her one leg is crippled, she runs and plays with the best of them. However,
she has no bowel control so this is a problem
for most people! She is
now 2 years old, spayed and not housebroken!
Sadie is a one year old, female Terrier mix. She is spayed and housebroken. She
is great with kids and other dogs, but cannot be around cats. Sadie is a
small dog weighing 28 lbs but could stand to gain some weight. Her owner is off to college and is gone
for many hours a day and she is lonely.
We hope to find her a family with kids and another dog as that
is her dream!
Joey is a 40 lb,
male, Aussie/Husky mix. He is
neutered and used to be housebroken in his old home but not
here!! He needs to gain weight, but
he has tons of energy, loves to play and is great with kids and
other dogs. (no info on cats, we do not have cats here, but there is
no aggression with him at all )
Olivia is a 7
month old, female, Husky/Shepherd mix.
She is spayed and up to date on shots but very timid. She is afraid of cats and big dogs, but
shows no aggression at all. Olivia
weighs about 50 lbs and is lean. She
takes time to gain her trust and shakes when confronted with new
situations. She will thrive in a
quiet home with a lot of attention.
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/.
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.
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.
Oreo: male from
abandoned , rat infested home
Isabelle: Still working on bladder issues
Roxy: blind and recovering from starvation
