Find Your New BFF!
Obviously Fluffy is not real, but for those of you who want a REAL dog, one that will be your loyal companion and lifelong protector, one that will love you unconditionally until its last breath, we have some wonderful dogs who would love to meet you!
The simple truth is -- no dog is instantly perfect. If you want a dog that will never bark, jump, dig, chew, has perfect manners, and is 100% house-trained on day one, then please adopt Fluffy (or one like her).
A rescued dog can bring a lifetime of love and devotion, but in the beginning some may require a little extra effort on your part. Some of these dogs have been abandoned, abused, starved, hit by cars, or simply neglected by the humans they once trusted. Their worlds have been turned upside down beyond their ability to understand, and most will require some time to adjust. Some may need a refresher course in house-training. And, after being abandoned, some may have separation issues and will need help to feel secure.
It may take two weeks or it may take six months, but these issues can all be overcome with a little love and patience (and we're always here to help in any way we can). You will then have your perfect dog, and a true Best Friend Forever.
If you wish to sponsor Fluffy, your donation will help the real dogs in our care, and is tax deductible. (Donate) Thank you for your support!
Pepe (Adopt) Fostered in Henderson
Pepe was dumped at the parking lot of the grocery store by his owner who claimed he had too many dogs. Pepe loves people; he's very affectionate and likes to snuggle. He's about 2 yrs old, and weighs 7 lbs.
The first night in foster care, he tried to guard the bed and did not want my dogs to get on top of the bed. So the next night he slept in a crate next to the bed so he could still be with us without bothering my dogs, and then the next morning he did great getting along with the other dogs – everyone in the same room and no one growling. Yay!
Overall, I think he would be a great little companion for somebody. He is a sweetheart and a great little snuggle buddy. He will also be your mini guard dog – on high alert most of the time, ready to jump up and investigate any unusual noises.
Pepe would prefer to be your one-and-only spoiled baby, but he's learning to get along with the other dogs. Mostly he just gets jealous when the other dogs want to come on the bed. In Pepe’s perfect world, he would only be sharing the bed with you. :)
FOSTER HOMES NEEDED!
You will have input as to who adopts him because you will know him better than anyone. The best part of fostering is that if you happen to fall in love with the dog you are fostering, you have first choice to adopt!
If you think you might like to give fostering a try, please complete the Volunteer form and we will be in touch! Thank you!
