I AM IN FOSTER CARE!
Special Needs Adoption! Pointe is a 4-month-old, female, chocolate point Siamese kitten. She's a sweet, friendly, and very inquisitive girl, looking for her permanent home. Imagine a dog-like cat that follows you around and is very social. As soon as she is spayed, she'll be ready for her permanent home. She'd be fine to go to a home with other cats or as a single, as she's used to being by herself, as she is in foster care, but very intrigued when she is allowed to play with other kittens or cats.
She is a Special Needs adoption because she was born or suffered a spinal injury as a kitten, so she is somewhat incontinent. She has a mega colon (medical term), so her bowels are not regular due to her injury. She dribbles some and would do best in a SAFE indoor/outdoor setup, a family-owned barn home, or an environment where if she has an accident it would not be an issue. She uses the litter box, but is unaware of occasional accidents. We are putting her on a special diet to help correct this (testing it now) and x-rays revealed this is not something that can be corrected by surgery. To meet this sweet heart, email Alyson at: email@example.com
*Please note all adoptions of Foster Cats and Kittens will NOT be finalized until the Spay/Neuter surgery, FELV/FIV testing, and required vaccines have been completed. Approved adoptions will remain in a pending status until the results of these tests and completion of these medical procedures

Home needed for Waffles, currently in Florida, shoulder rider and lover gal extraordinaire! At 5 months old, how can you resist?
Hi. My name is Winston, and I am 6 1/2 yr old. The nice people at Second Chance rescued me from animal control. They are guessing that I am about five years old, and think I could either be a Pug mix, or a Boston terrier mix - and I think I also have some Italian Greyhound in my mix. I was at animal control for a long time, over three weeks. It was awful there and I was so scared. When I finally went into the Second Chance's program, I was terrified of everybody and everything. And when I got to my foster mom's home, I did not trust her and I did not trust her dogs. All I wanted to do was growl and hide behind the front door. But my foster mom was so very patient with me. She fed me treats, she pet me, she held me on her lap (I only weigh 13#), and she let me sleep with her. And after spending all those nights on a cement floor, did that bed ever feel good!! It took about three days before I figured out that my foster mom really cared a lot about me and that she was not going to hurt me. Now we are really, really good friends. How I love to sit on her lap when she is reading or working on her computer! My foster mom thinks it's so cute when I stand on her leg and rest my chin on her shoulder. I also sleep right next to her at night. I feel so safe at her house, and after an adjustment period, I would feel safe with you, too. For the most part, I get along with her dogs. I find her big dog annoying and still growl at him, but the smaller ones are just great. I play with them and sleep with them sometimes. Her cats do not phase me at all. I am a really good eater and I like my chews. I can get a little "snarky" with my chews if I think someone is going to take them. Consider me a very good rider in a car. Being totally crate trained, I can go up to 9 hours in my crate; you should have one for me to use while you are gone from the home. I go outside every 2-3 hrs when my mom is home, and have even gone to the door a couple times to let her know "it's time!!!" I would make a fabulous pet for an adult person as I love attention and companionship, and would appreciate a quiet house with someone home much of the time. I probably would not do very well with children just because they are so unpredictable. Expect that I might be really scared again when I leave my foster mom's home. But I just know that if you are patient and kind to me, I will learn to trust you just like I did my foster mom. I can hardly wait to find my forever home!!!! At a recent pet adoption day, I did really well meeting new people. If you have an adult-only home, and think it could be with you, please call 651-771-5662. I've been neutered, had my teeth cleaned, and had my vaccinations, so I'm good to go!! My adoption fee is 5.

Miura gave her all to save four precious little lives, now she needs our help to save hers. You see Miura came in with milk, but no kittens. Her own probably left without a mother when she came in as a stray. She was healthy and all set to move up to the adoption rooms when four little motherless kittens came into the shelter. The only chance they had was to be able to go to a nursing mother to keep them alive for a few more weeks, and Miura became the serrogate. She took happily to this job, cleaning, loving and being a mother to them right from start, so happy to have "her" babies back again.
The babies made it, they grew, learned to eat on their own and are now old enough to be adopted but poor Miura had given a lot and has come down with a URI. As she watched her healthy babies be moved away from her, she did not even have strength to offer a protesting meow before being carried back to the quiet kennel in isolation where she could get medications to try to help her.
Miura now needs our help, all of ours, she needs to be able to go to a foster (or adopter) so she can receive the medications and treatments she needs to survive, to give her a chance to find her forever home. She saved four lives, can we please save hers?

This is Louie!
Pumpkin laying on a lazy Sunday daydreaming about his forever home. One that will have a kitty friend that he can play with and cuddle and share his purrs with you. He is simply irresistible. Interested in meeting him just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org . PLEASE SHARE him. He could be just the kind of kitty your friends or family member are looking for.

Age: Born November 2016
Breed: Shar pei/lab mix
Sex: Male (not neutered)
Location: ?Williamson, NY
Vet Info: Dallas is not neutered. He is UTD on vaccinations. He has not received a heartworm test due to being so young. Dallas weighs about between 25-30 pounds. Dallas' owner writes, "We took Dallas to see an ophtalmolodist and he said that Dallas is totally blind. He said that his retina never full developed."
Owner Info: Dallas is an adorable boy (just a pup) who was adopted from a rescue group. He is currently with his owner and has had some aggression issues related to food and has nipped at their daughter when food was involved. The owner writes, "Dallas becomes aggressive around food." His owner has started having Dallas work with a trainer to address some of these issues. The owner wants a potential adopter to know, "Dallas is a very loving dog. He needs a quite home with someone who is able to help him with his disability. I am very heartbroken that I have to give him up, but feel that it is best for him to have a better life."
Dallas is an indoor dog and crated. He is not yet housebroken and leash trained. He is starting to learn commands like "sit" and is now in formal obedience training. Dallas is described as outgoing and nervous and will likely adjust well to new environments. She is good with adults and older kids and does well with other animals. His owner shares, "We do have another dog and Dallas and him are pretty much always together. They play together. They seem to get along fine with our 2 cats too. He trys to get them to play. Dallas is a very good and loving puppy and it is really going to break our hearts to have to get rid of him."
Dallas is a very special boy who hasn't even had a full year of life and is VERY much hoping for her second chance. He is ready and excited for his new home! If you have room for this sweet boy, please contact email@example.com. Please note we will ask for a vet reference.

SPECIAL NEEDS - Please share. Roxy is a deaf approximately 3 year old mixed breed. She was owner surrendered as an American Bulldog mix; she appears to possibly†be an Ambull/Pitty mix. Roxy is doing well at the shelter as staff has been diligently working with her. She is learning hand signals and getting the exercise she needs. She is an active girl, but she is also used to living in a home, so with a fun owner who will get her some daily activity, she should transition just fine back to a house dog.
Sadly, Roxy's original owners did not have the experience or understand the needs of a deaf dog. With no means to communicate, Roxy was loved, but lived a confused life. She is easily startled and so must go to a home with no children - this is part of the reason her original family had to give her up. She was also likely not appropriately socialized with other animals and due to her insecurities and lack of understanding of the world, she also must find a home with no other dogs.
Roxy finally is around knowledgeable folks at the shelter who can understand what life is like for a deaf dog and have worked with her. She has come so far. However, she cannot stay at the shelter forever. Aside from her deafness and need to be in a child-free, dog-free home, Roxy is a happy, loving dog who is already mastering hand signal commands and is a quick learner. Her previous owner also noted she was house & crate-trained.
Roxie (ID A077896)

Sweet Gemmill is just one of many wonderful dogs at the Villalobos Rescue Center in New Orleans that need to be adopted, or a sponsor.
This little street dog has one of the most miraculous rescue stories in the history of Villalobos Rescue Center. After falling down 40 feet into the run off from a pumping station here in New Orleans, landing in the alligator infested waters are actually what saved his life. Narrowly escaping them, he managed to crawl up onto a concrete slab where he remained for days until construction workers heard his cries. After putting together a very elaborate rescue plan, we managed to haul Gemmill up to safety. He is currently going through heart worm treatment and still adjusting to people (he can be just a little bit shy) but soon he will be available for adoption. But for now he and his buddies here at Villalobos will continue to spend quality time together and talk of happy times to come.
If you can't adopt, then a month will make a big difference towards helping Gemmill and others like her. Visit the site today. Thank you!†http://www.vrcpitbull.com/

Hunter is as versatile as they come. He can be your hiking buddy as well as your coach potato.
You really would never know this handsome man is right around 9 years old by how puppy like and full of absolute spunkiness he is!
We recently ran a DNA test on him and found him to be a mix of Staffy, Jack Russell Terrier and Cocker Spaniel. What an interesting mix!
Hunter is a smaller 45 pounds and is low to the ground, but long in body.
Hunter DESPISES cats. He will only go to a home without them because he is a danger to any felines in his presence.However, he does wonderfully with other dogs, both bigger and smaller (male and females). His best friend is his foster furbrother, Fred.
Hunter does have some skin allergies which are controlled very easily (he eats Nutro limited ingredient Salmon food, gets his ears cleaned twice a week with a over the counter hydrocortisone drop in them.)
Hunter is housebroken, neutered, microchipped, up to date on vaccinations and preventatives.
He is currently in Georgia, but transport to any approved home within the US can be provided at no additional fee.
Please visit SNARRANIMALRESCUE.org to fill out an adoption application and our adoption requirements/process can also be found there!
Some of our foster parents are also fostering multiple animals we have in the rescue... so if you're interested in fostering Hunter or any of our other dogs/cats, please send a foster application in! Foster applications can also be found on†snarranimalrescue.org
Sylvester and Tank are very attached as they are father and son. They hang out together in a large basket in the cat room. If you are looking for a pair they would be a great addition. These two have wonderful personalities. Tank the father has a white dot on his nose and Sylvester more of a triangle of white fur. Tank is 3 and Sylvester is 2. Tank was born with a birth defect which has left his legs deformed. He doesn't know any better so as he loves to chase balls and pull on strings. He is not in pain just has a little trouble jumping. They spend there time eating and sleeping together. They also like a lap as well. The shelter would like them to be adopted together as they are a bonded!
