||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:

is neutered, house-trained, current on shots and located in Carson
Thanks for listening to Milo's story!
||We have Peeps in custody of Butler
Town Pound. She is fostering at my house but does not have rescue
commitment. When Peeps was reported to our police department her eyes
were bulging out of her head. Our options were euthanasia or
removing the eyes, we authorized emergency surgery which donors were
nice enough to cover the expenses. Peeps has recovered from her
Most people who meet Peeps thinks she
"must have SOME vision" because she gets around so well. She
gets along well with all of the dogs in her foster home, but older
dogs in your home may not appreciate her puppy exuberance. Peeps requires
a fenced in yard. She requests you agree 30lbs is a great
sized lap dog and plan to spend time each day holding her while she
licks your face.
Peeps is available for adoption or to be
released to a reputable rescue. Anyone interested in Peeps can e-mail Erika.email@example.com

|Meet Ludwig, a wonderful dog that
needs to find his forever home. He loves other dogs so if he could
find a home with a canine playmate that would be terrific! Ludwig
is stunning and has quite a regal air about him. Perhaps it is
because he is deaf that he notices everything and is so very smart.
Ludwig has a wonderful vet tech from our spay/neuter clinic to thank for
his opportunity to find a better life.
During this past winter, this vet tech
passed by his house on her way to and from work and saw that he was
chained outside in the dirt and appeared to have little, if any, care or
attention. She spoke to the owner of the house who agreed to
surrender Ludwig. The vet tech asked if we could take Ludwig into
our rescue program and help him find a real home. He has been a
great fit here since he has lots of dogs to play with! He is a
very attentive and obedient boy and is crate-trained and housebroken.
He is wonderful on lead. He notices everything and you may find
that you start noticing the smaller things too as you explore together
on your walks. Ludwig has the best time chasing leaves blowing in
the wind or watching the clouds and birds in the sky.
We are so excited to help him to find
that special place to call his own where he can blossom even more and
get all that well-deserved attention that he missed in the first few
months of his life. He is now 11 months old and currently weighs
31 lbs. Ludwig has been neutered, microchipped and is up to date
on all of his shots. He is heartworm negative and on monthly
preventatives for heartworms, fleas and ticks.
If you would like to meet Ludwig please
complete our adoption application form at www.cedarfarmrescue.com
. Call 336.251.8877 with any questions about Ludwig or our rescue
process. We do require that you come visit with Ludwig at our
adoption center in downtown Mocksville, NC. We are there by
appointment only, so please call to set that up.
|Wheel Chair Dogs
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.
This sweet senior Pomeranian might be
pint-size (half-pint size, actually) but she is still full of spunk!
Foxy is 12 years of age but don't tell her that because I don't think
she knows! Foxy adores attention and never turns down a belly rub. She
is loveable and "tote-able"- she will sit with you while you
work at your desk or on the computer, snuggle up with you and watch TV
or supervise your yoga positions. Of course there must be snack breaks
in between- Foxy will let you know when she is hungry with a little
Foxy has a subluxation of the patella in
each of her hind legs so she cannot walk. She gets around just fine,
though, and a custom wheelchair for Foxy is in the works. She is trained
to go on a wee wee pad and does so without any issue. Foxy is currently
in a foster home where she keeps up with the large and medium size dogs
who live there. This senior pipsqueak even chases after the large dog!
Foxy's foster Mom says, "Foxy interacts with my other dogs- the
longer I have her the younger she acts! When friends come over they
think she is a puppy!"
So, why would a dog as wonderful as Foxy
be looking for a home after all this time? Tragically, Foxy's first
owner passed away unexpectedly so the woman's parents took Foxy and her
other dog in. Sadly, tragedy struck twice when her owners were placed in
a nursing home leaving Foxy and her other canine friend in need of a new
Foxy is good with other dogs, ignores
cats and is great with all people. Given her size, age and disability a
family without or with older children would be best for Foxy.
If you are interested in adopting Foxy or
would like to learn more about her please contact Marilyn with Animal
Friends for Education and Welfare (rescue) at email@example.com
. Foxy is located in New Jersey.
||I am writing you on behalf of one of my
patients at Garden State Veterinary Specialists (Tinton Falls, NJ).
His name is Dolittle (8 year old, M/N Mixed Breed Dog) and
he has been under the ownership of Best Friends Animal Rescue since
October 2013. He has been living in our hospital since December
2013 when he underwent spinal surgery (hemilaminectomy) for his chronic
disc disease. Dolittle never regained motor function to his hind
He is one of the brightest, happiest dogs
I have ever met. He loves his wheelchair and even plays fetch.
He deserves the stability and love of a forever home, not the constant
commotion of a busy referral hospital. The challenge is that he
would do best in a home without other pets or children. I have attached
some pictures and a bio below. I would really appreciate it if you
could post his info to get the word out about him. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Australian Cattle Dog (Red Heeler)
5 yrs old spayed female
Is being brought UTD on vaccines and HW tested
Currently located an hour north of Dallas in Gainesville, TX
See the attached video and you'll see
just how sweet she is. She is friendly, affectionate and playful. She is
fine with being handled and groomed. When introduced to other dogs she
was not aggressive.
Jesse is hind paralyzed, but continent
(i.e. has control of her bladder and bowels). We are currently working
on getting her a wheelchair.
Jesse is currently in the care of the
Good Samaritan that saved her life, literally. Jesse was this woman's
neighbors' dog. When they got her their dogs went after Jesse so they
put her outside. One day the Good Samaritan found Jessie unable to walk
and went to the neighbor. The neighbor said she was aware of Jesse's
condition, that she just showed up like that in the morning and they she
probably got hit by a car. Here is where Jesse got lucky...the
neighbor's son was going to shoot Jesse and that is when the Good
Samaritan told her neighbor she would take Jesse. Jesse was taken to the
vet where x-rays were taken and no broken bones were found. The
veterinarian prescribed steroids suspecting a disk issue but couldn't
confirm that diagnosis with an MRI. Jesse is being boarded in the Good
Samaritan's boarding facility (more luck) and is being well cared for,
kept clean and given affection.
|PLEASE, let's help this Good
Samaritan help Jesse get into rescue or a forever home! If you are
interesting in learning more about Jesse please e-mail email@example.com
Pablo is an incredibly sweet, 6
year old rescue. He is fully trained, cooperative and obedient. In
July 2013 he ruptured discs in his low back, had massive hemorrhaging,
and now has permanent spinal cord damage. He needs his wheelchair to
get around. He loves taking walks and being around people, dogs, cats,
birds and wildlife. Animals and people love his gentle, quiet spirit.
During the day Pablo sleeps quietly in his bed at home and at my
Pablo is afraid to be alone since the
injury. He bonds very quickly with caretakers. His bladder needs to be
expressed a few times a day. He holds urine well between potty breaks
and can hold his bladder 10-11 hours overnight. He weighs about 16 lbs
and is easy to carry.
Pablo is young, comfortable and healthy.
He is an absolute angel. It's very hard to give up such a
well-behaved, lovely dog but he will be happier in a better
environment than I can provide as a single dog-mom. Please contact me,
Sid, at firstname.lastname@example.org
for more info, pictures and videos. I live in Portland, Oregon. Thank
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
I leave the hair long on the front of
his back legs as he drags them through the doggie door and that
gives him good padding and I scissor in a little puff where a tail
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
||Riversong (River) is a four year
old active, loving feist terrier. She joined our family in 2011 when we
adopted her from the local animal shelter. She is a great companion dog,
she loves people and loves getting lots of attention. In September 2013
she was hit by a car and now suffers from paralysis of her hind legs and
She is very resilient and in spite of her
injuries, she manages to be mobile and active by pulling herself around
with her front legs. She adapts well and would do fine in a home with
only one owner or a family with children. She does not like other dogs
but might adjust if she is introduced slowly. She gets along fine with
the cats in our home. She loves playing ball with our 4 and 6 yr old.
Our teenage son has been caring for her but because of a family crisis
and other medical needs in our family, we are unable to continue to give
her the care she needs. Our prayer is that we can find another loving
home for her where she gets a lot of tender loving care. She will reward
you with lots of affection and loyalty. Email email@example.com

Merry is an affectionate, people-loving
dog that was rescued several years ago from a high-kill shelter. Despite
the fact that she is deaf and has three legs, Merry is one of the
happiest and most affectionate dogs you will ever meet (hence the name).
She loves to nap in the sun, cuddle with people, and play tug with her
Merry loves attention and has a lot of
energy and would be best in a home without small children or cats. She
is house trained, crate trained, and good in the car. Because she is
deaf, she has been trained to respond to basic hand gestures, and knows
how to sit, lay down, follow, drop toys, etc.

Dogs with Minor Challenges
||Hello, let me introduce myself. I am a 5
year old spayed german shepherd named Mico. I am a fun loving
girl who loves to play with my lab friend. I am trying to help my mom
find me a new home as she is REALLY busy with school and my human kids.
She only wants the best for me, so this is why I will be out there
looking for my next forever home. I have this condition called mega
esophagus, my mom feeds me soaked food 3 times a day at an elevated
level and I do not have any problems. When my family need to leave me I
sleep in this thing called a crate which I have no problem with. I went
to school awhile ago to learn some of those things like sit, stay and
come. It has been awhile since I practice this but I will work very hard
to freshen up my skills. Will you be willing to meet me to see if you
will be my next family?
If you are interested in meeting with me
or have any questions about me please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
I look forward to meeting you www.promisesanimalrescue.org
||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

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