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)

Sex: Male, neutered
Breed: Corgi Mix
Age: approx. 5 years
Location: San Jose, California
Buddy is a very sweet Corgi mix, who lost
his sight due to glaucoma. Buddy was found alone and blind wandering the
streets of San Jose. When we finally got him help we realized he had
been living in constant pain for many years. The decision was made to
remove his eyes and give Buddy the gift of living pain-free for the rest
of his life. The transformation has been amazing.
For the first time Buddy has discovered
the joy of playing with squeaky toys and playing tug-of-war with his
foster parents. Buddy adores going for walks and loves attention and
belly rubs. Because of his blindness Buddy is looking for a home that
will understand his need for patience while he learns to navigate
through a world which has greatly improved for him but still has many
challenges to meet. Buddy would like a home with a small fenced yard and
would do best as the only dog or possibly with another small passive
dog. If you are interested in meeting this handsome guy or would like
more information please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
||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

This blue eyed girl just wants to be loved. She is about 2 years
old and was surrendered to ACCT Philly by her owner
who could no longer care for her. ACCT is a high volume kill shelter, Simone wasn't
doing well in the shelter and was way too skinny, so her
foster mom brought her home to fatten her up and find her, her forever
home. Simone does like other dos, she was surrendered with a
companion dog who was sadly adopted without her. Simone is
listed as a Terrier mix. She is house trained, spayed, microchipped
and up to date on all vaccines. She will need work on crate
is deaf it doesn't slow her down too much, she's one smart girl! She
knows hand signals and listens most of the time (sometimes she
would much rather snuggle with a warm human than listen to hand
signals) As common in deaf dogs, she is anxious in large crowds and
doesn't like sudden movements. She is nervous in new places and will
require some extra TLC to get her properly adjusted to her new home and
surroundings. She is lower energy very sweet and eager to please.
Her tail is always wagging and her crystal blue eyes and slight
under-bite are just too cute to resist! Interested in adopting Simone?
Please contact her foster mom at: email@example.com

George Oscar Bleuth (GOB) - 4yr old, 50lb, lab
"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
|George is ready to settle into
his forever home with people to call his own. Even after he is adopted,
APA! will continue to cover his rehab and medical appointments.
Are you ready to be greeted every day with excitement and kisses? That's
George's spirit shining through...loving and grateful. And happy to be
||Eddie is about 3 years old and a
long hair male chihuahua. He is super sweet...and just about every one
who meets him loves him! He needs a very very special home.
We like to call him Fast Eddie because
although he is in a wheelchair you would never know he is disabled. He's
runs around and is super fun to be with—he's got personality plus+!!!!
Eddie was found at the SPCA in Stockton, California tied
to the door one morning, paralyzed from the waist down. We have no idea
what happened....whether he was born this way or it was an accident, but
despite his disability, he is just wonderful. He has a sweet
personality, loves other dogs, is easily trained, and loves people. He
gets around just fine with his 'wheels' and has control of his poop (and
knows how to tell us when he has to go) but he either hasn't figured it
out how to tell us when he has to pee (or can't tell us), so a diaper is
needed until that is resolved.
Taking care of him is pretty easy since
he's so small. When he gets his back legs dirty, you just wipe them off
with a disposable wipe and he's good to go. He comes with a wheelchair
and if you are in the San Francisco Bay area he gets a free wellness
visit at the vet.

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).

||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
and he has to be shipped, the adopting family would have to pay for those

||Hi everyone! My name is Arnie, and I
would love to be your best friend! I get along with everyone and love to
play! I walk kind of funny and lose my balance sometimes because the
doctors say have a condition called Myotonia Congenita. I take on the
world at a slower pace, but I don't mind--you should see my huge muscles!
Arnie is currently in foster care, if you would like to meet with him
