Lizzie is an older Black Lab mix who is not too keen on rescue life and is missing a family of her own to devote herself to. She LOVES kids and people...everyone she meets is an instant friend to her. Lizzie does not care for other dogs so needs to be the only dog in the home. Other than that one requirement, this sweet girl is perfect!
Callie is a sweetheart of a Lab mix girl who adorea her family with all her heart. She is well trained, playful, and super smart! She does perfer not to share her people with other pets so needs an adult only home where she can be the only furry companion.
We rescue all types of dogs, ranging from small to large breeds. Roughly 40% of the dogs we rescue are purebred while the other 60% are mixed breeds. We will tell you about each dog's history, personality, & behavior, including whether or not they are good which children and other pets, their exercise needs, & other important information.
Our adoption fees are non-negotiable and average about $350 which includes all vet work-spay/neuter, vaccinations, HW/Lymes testing (if old enough), deworming, and microchip. Often the vet costs far exceed the adoption fee, especially on our special needs dogs. We rely on adoption fees to be able to continue to rescue more dogs in need.
NEXT PET ADOPTION--Our next pet adoption will be on Saturday, May 25th from 12-3 at the Plymouth Petsmart.

WHY SO MANY BLACK DOGS? We often hear people complain about the number of black dogs we have in our program and feel that now is the perfect time to educate the public about how hard it is for black dogs to find homes. Black or darker colored dogs, especially the larger sized ones, are often the first to get euthanized at pounds, shelters, & humane societies when space becomes an issue. People tend to overlook the black/darker dogs for the lighter colored dogs - they see darker dogs as "just another black dog" rather than as a unique individual. It doesn't matter if the dog is purebred or not - if a dog is brought to a shelter/pound/humane society and they have dark colored fur, their chance of getting adopted is very slim. This is a shame because black dogs are just as wonderful as lighter colored dogs. Please consider adopting a darker colored dog!
