Mackenzie’s Animal Sanctuary
Those involved with Mackenzie’s Animal Sanctuary take pride in finding the right home for dogs in their care. Here are their pets of the week.
Hi, my name is “Poe”. My D.O.B is 8/8/14. I LOVE to swim. Swimming and playing fetch are two of my most favorite activities. I don’t really enjoy playing with other dogs, but can be around dogs that won’t get in my face. I can be a little mouthy sometimes, so I would prefer a home without any small kids. I would love to be adopted by a family that is really active and has the time to work on teaching me new commands. Please come see me soon!
I am such a fun loving dude! My name is Tonto!! I would love to meet you and just hang out. I love the large play yard and walks, and running with some volunteers. I am working on my commands, and manners, as I am in the Comeback Canine program….this is a training program with our trainers at Mackenzie’s Animal Sanctuary. I love hanging out in the offices and playing with toys. I am probably not the dog to have in a home with kitty cats.
Hearts of Hope Dog Rescue
Hearts of Hope Dog Rescue look to find dogs in their care forever homes with the help of foster homes. Here are their pets of the week.
Sweet and laid back are just two words you could use to describe Frank! He is approximately 7 years old and originally from Beirut, Lebanon. Frank is just an all around great dog with medium energy. He enjoys lounging around the house, laying in the sun, being pet, and going for walks. He also rides very well in the car! Frank will go in a crate if needed, but he is perfectly fine left out of a crate while he is home alone. He loves kids and does very well with female dogs, but he takes a little longer to warm up to male dogs. He thinks cats are fun to chase so a home without cats would be best. Frank is neutered, microchipped, and up to date on shots. His adoption fee is $200. To adopt Frank apply at www.rescueofhope.com/adoption-application/
Meet Bart! He’s a 2-year-old male chihuahua mix that was found as a stray and brought to the shelter. He was terrified there so the kind people at the shelter contacted us to foster him. Bart has been in his foster home for about two weeks and he has settled in great. Like a typical chihuahua, he has a lot of personality packed into his small stature. His foster family is working on introducing him to new situations and helping him build confidence, but he will need a home that continues this training. It takes him a while to warm up to new people, but he will be your best friend when he learns to trust you. Bart would do best in a home without kids, but loves other dogs and is great with cats. Bart is house and kennel trained, knows some basic commands, and is learning to walk on a leash. He has a lot of energy so he’ll need a family to give him sufficient exercise. His favorite thing to do is play fetch! Due to his speed, he would do best with a fenced in yard. His adoption fee is $200. To adopt Bart apply at www.rescueofhope.com/adoption-application/
Carol’s Ferals specializes in trap, neuter, return (TNR), but they come across “friendlies” who are available for adoption. Here are their pets of the week.
KITTENS! KITTENS! KITTENS! We have Kittens! Come see our New friends at Happy Cat Café. They are younger than us and they are cute too.
Hi, I’m Biscotti. I’m about 3 months old and full of sass! I live up to my tortie nature and am pretty vocal and a little bossy sometimes, but in the best way! I do love to snuggle and the volunteers say I like to be held a little bit too.
Hi, I’m Coraline! I was brought to Carol’s Ferals in May 2018 and am approximately 7 months old. I’m a beautiful girl, aren’t I?! Come meet me today if you’re looking for a shy sweet girl for your quiet home and family.
Hi, I’m Padme! I was rescued with my siblings on May 4th, so my foster momma couldn’t resist naming us after the day’s most famous characters. I’m about 4 months old. My foster mom says I am the leader of the pack, so obviously I needed to be named after a queen! I love attention, and obviously love to be #1.
