Available for adoption

Below are the dogs currently in our care. Please review the information provided on each dog and if you think he/she would be a good match for your family and lifestyle, an adoption application link button can be found below each dog. Indicate the dog you are applying for on your completed form. Applications will be reviewed and those most suitable will be contacted for an interview and meeting. Do not apply for a dog that is clearly not recommended for your situation (e.g. if noted as no small children and you have small children, even if you feel your children are good with dogs) We must be firm on our assessment requirements to maximize the chance of a successful and long term placement.

We do not do same day adoptions and we do not ship dogs. Reference and home checks are required prior to adoption finalization. Applicants selected as potential adoptive families (including any other family dogs) must initially visit the rescue dog to assess compatibility. Adoptive families are asked to provide regular updates following adoption. Additional protocol information can be found in the adoption contract & home checklist at the bottom of the rescue page.

Marcel

MEET MARCEL

Marcel is a handsome three year old fawn boy with an absolutely perfect personality!
He is great with all people and pets and is a perfect companion in every way.

He will need a family that can continue his routine of being taken out every three to four hours during and day and provide a sufficient amount of daily exercise to maintain muscle strength. Few if any stairs.

Under Assessment

Why Under Assessment?

Some of our Rescue dogs are under assessment and are therefore not ready for adoption. We may need more time to evaluate their temperament or behavior or they may have specific  health concerns that need to be addressed. Once these dogs are ready for adoption, they will be moved to the Available for Adoption section above.
In the meantime we could still use your help. Please consider making a donation towards their care. These dogs require the most financial investment, and with your generous donation, we will have the resources needed to care for them while they are on the path towards finding their forever homes.
