||Milo is a very special Senior boy
who needs a very special home. He lost his eyesight about 2 years
ago and now his family is losing their home. He may have some
hearing loss, also. This beautiful guy may be a Senior, but acts
like a pup: an enthusiastic bundle of energy (typical Pointer!)!
Milo is on Thyroid meds (about $7 a
month) and has some skin issues, both of which are being
managed nicely with medication, diet and lots of loving attention.
Milo weighs about 75 lbs. and is trimming down on the thyroid meds.
Because of his blindness he needs to be in a home that is a safe,
patient environment. Milo is your typical Pointer and still full
of energy. He would do great with someone familiar with
Pointers and their need for mental and physical stimulation. Milo
would love to find that special person who is looking for a nice walking
partner and someone to cuddle with at the end of the day.
He gets along well with other dogs,
and even cats! This boy is one of sweetest pups you'll ever meet
(not a bad bone in his body). He really deserves a loving
homeThanks to donations Milo was able to get the medical attention he
needed, but we still need to do follow-ups and hopefully get him into a
doggie eye doctor! Any donation would be greatly appreciated.
If you or someone you know might be able to donate or consider fostering
or adopting Milo, please contact: Robyn at 775-240-5142, email@example.com
or Linda at 775-530-1752, firstname.lastname@example.org.Milo
is neutered, house-trained, current on shots and located in Carson
Thanks for listening to Milo's story!
||Slippers, a pure bred white collie,
is 3 years old, house trained, up-to-date on shots and is neutered.
Slippers has limited sight and hearing but a heart and spirit that
are ten feet tall! He really needs to have at least one other dog
in the house and is used to having his human around a lot too. He
is a wonderful passenger in the car and a really smart young man. Slippers
is a nice size boy, weighing in around 70 pounds. Five minutes with
Slippers will melt your heart! If you are interested in meeting
Slippers, please call Collie Rescue SEPA (south east PA)

||Ray was wondering the streets when
he was picked up by Animal Control. He was brought to a local Shelter
where he waited for his family to reclaim him, but that never happened.
The Shelter notified Atlantic County Canines for help, and without
hesitation, we took him into our Program.
This special little guy is looking for
someone with a big heart who can give him the home he deserves in his
golden years. Ray is a senior at 10+ years old. His sight and hearing
aren't what they use to be, but that doesn't stop him from being the
sweet little soul that he is! Ray is affectionate and gentle, and he
loves treats. At 16 lbs, this guy will make a nice lap companion. Ray is
really hoping that a caring family will step up and give him a loving

||Blanco is a Male Bulldog Mix
approximately 2-3 years old. He is such a gem. We have
discovered that his hearing is very limited if he is not completely
deaf. He seems to be dog friendly, loves to go for long walks and
is such a well mannered loveable guy.
Blanco is available for adoption at the
Savannah Chatham Animal Control located at 7211 Sallie Mood Dr Savannah,

||Hi there! My name is Shaggy and I
am a super special pup waiting for my big break in life. I'm a
true Heinz 57, a mix of dachshund, shepherd and who knows what, and am
just over 2 years old. I am full grown at 45 pounds. I'm deaf, but that
doesn't stop me one bit. I'm neutered, up to date on shots and
housebroken. I am looking for a loving, dog savvy home.
Before the nice people at Pet Rescue saved me, I went from one home to
another because no one knew that I was deaf and could not hear them. Now
I am in a foster home with other dogs, but can't wait to be the center
of someone's universe, their only pet. I just love to be with my people
and want nothing more than to just cuddle up with you and roll over for
belly rubs. I may be able to share my home with another dog, although I
do like to keep my food and toys for myself; I prefer not to share them.
No cats for me, as I will chase them and not stop.
I love car rides and looking out the window. I like to go for walks and
run and play in the yard. A fenced yard is REQUIRED for me. I am very
food motivated and would be extremely responsive to learning and special
sign language training.
I'm a very happy pup and my tail is always in constant motion.

We have a wonderful adopter
of a fabulous wheelchair dog that has offered to speak with anyone needing
assistance with your paralyzed dog. Please contact Elizabeth at firstname.lastname@example.org
We will not be accepting
anymore paralyzed dogs into the rescue. The 6 we are currently
caring for have filled our spaces for wheelchair/incontinent dogs.
||Jessie is a red heeler paralyzed
from the hips down so she can only get around by scooting around with
her front legs. She is currently housed in a kennel while looking for a
home, but can not be housed for very long.
She is roughly 4 years old and is very
loving towards people but not other dogs. She eats well and has no
broken bones or fractures. She has no problem using the restroom but it
would help if she could stand on her back legs.
Jessie would love you the moment you met
her if you give her a chance.

"I have a second chance at life...can I
spend it with you?"
Prepare to be charmed by this electric wiggle machine (no magic
required). George is ready to meet his special someone and go home!
The future was not always so bright for this little ball of energy. If
fact he was within 30 minutes of not having any future at all. George
was literally snatched from the euthanasia table by APA! staff. George
had been hit by a car that roughed him up pretty badly and fractured his
With a lot of TLC and physical therapy (and a few of his favorite turkey
hot dogs) he is doing well. George is housetrained, and loves hugs, car
rides, naps in the sun, and resting his head in your lap. He gets around
great with his walker and is surprisingly very fast. He may never
qualify for the Boston Marathon, but he will make a great companion to
keep you company all day.
In addition to his foster dad, he loves women and other dogs! And he has
been in APA!'s cat building frequently and doesn't seem to mind cats in

his forever home with people to call his own. Even after he is adopted,

Bolt is still available for
adoption. Treasure Valley, Idaho.
Bolt is not in a wheelchair, but he probably will be when he gets
older. He was born without a tail and does not have full
control of his back end. He can leap and run and get on the
couch and into the car, but sometimes his back feet knuckle under
without his awareness and he has broken two toes.
And because he does not have full
control of his hind end, he doesn't always void properly and is
prone to frequent urinary tract infections. Three or four a

his back legs as he drags them through the doggie door and that

Bolt is 3-4 years old and had an awful
childhood living outdoors in harsh weather his first two winters.
He had diareah and they didn't clean hm up and flies laid eggs and
maggots ate the flesh around his anus. This has healed well,
but he must be shaved regularly back there to stay clean. At
least twice a month.
He so appreciates and loves being an
indoor boy now and is the most snuggly, sweet affectionate being
I've ever met. He was given up because he killed barn cats.
And he occasionally gets overly excited and barky about little dogs,
especially females. Otherwise, he is a delight to have in my
home. He plays well with everyone else, With several little
dogs, he will lay down to play with them when he gets tired.

Robbie, who was adopted by the present owner from a Philadelphia
shelter, is a very happy, sweet, compliant beagle-terrier mix, roughly
three years old, weighing about 40 lbs., and fully house-trained.
Physically, Robbie was in extremely good health until November 2013,
when he had to undergo emergency surgery for a ruptured vertebral disc (IVDD).
Though at first he lost the use of his hind legs, his spinal cord was
not completely severed; he regained limited sensation and mobility, and
with extensive rehab learned to walk again. His gait is very
unsteady and he must wear protective robber booties on his hind paws to
prevent damage from dragging (and also to help with traction on smooth
surfaces). He can walk for short distances but cannot be allowed
to engage in active play (no dog park, for example; no jumping or
climbing). He loves people and other dogs, and he remains
energetic, with a good appetite and demeanor. Robbie also has
separation anxiety, which has continued to be resistant to treatment
both behavioral and pharmacological. So he would do best in a
household with multiple caretakers and, ideally, at least one other dog.
His present owner, who lives alone, canít manage this combination of
physical and behavioral challenges. He hopes that Robbie can find
the right forever home with you, and he would be very happy to send you
more information, pictures, videos, etc. and to talk with you about
arranging a visit in or near Philadelphia. Please
contact him directly at email@example.com.
Admiral was found tied to a tree,
underweight, with a broken femur and severe atrophy. A good
samaritan untied him and took him to the shelter where he quickly
became a staff favorite. The shelter was amazing and got him the
FHO surgery he desperately needed to repair his femur. It was
determined that it was an old injury.... he had likely had a broken
femur for months.
We'd hoped he'd regain the use of his leg,
but the damage to his hock could not be undone (he would have had to
wear a brace and be on pain meds permanently). We discovered he also
had a severe infection in his pelvis and once that was cleared up, we
determined the best course of action was to have his leg amputated -
he is now finally pain free with his medical care behind him. He's
ready to find his forever home and is definitely CGC/Therapy material.
He loves all people, dogs, and even small animals (he lives with
and hangs out with a bunny).
Dogs with Minor Challenges
||Bowie came to us severely matted
and could barely walk properly. Since he's been regularly groomed he's
really enjoying walking normally. He walks well on a leash and he thinks
cats are just fine companions. Bowie has been with us since July and
keeps getting overlooked for younger dogs. He's got dry eye and
will need Optimmune (eye ointment) daily the rest of his life. While
he's approximately 9 years old he is still very happy-go-lucky, quite
grateful to have another shot at life, and certainly not going to let
his dry eye get him down. A home without small children would likely be
best for him. Are there any angels out there who would take on a special
guy like this? He's so loyal and loving, it's such a shame that he's
getting bypassed because of his age and condition. He's got so much life
left in him and so much happiness left to share.

||Mo-Mo is a 4yr old Boxer /
Great Dane / Mixed and was treated for Distemper. So far it appears there
will be a residual tick that is affecting his left leg muscles. As the
pictures show, he is active and it is not letting it get in his way. TMo-mo
is still available and being housed in my home. He is a sweet loving guy
who still acts like a puppy and very playful. Our family has taken him to
a local lake where he was just awesome going into the water. He did swim
in deeper water but only when we where they next to him. Mo-Mo is current
on all vaccines, neutered, and micro-chipped. If we could find a loving
heart and a happy home locally, we would place him at no charge as his
adoption amount has been taken care of already. If it is out of the area

would love to be your best friend! I get along with everyone and love to
