Name: Rocky DOB: 08/17/2011 My name is Rocky...well because I am a fighter! I had an old leg injury that looks painful, but I have pushed through and do not let it slow me down.I was rescued from the local animal control with no history on me or what happened...I just want to say I am over it and want to move forward and enjoy my life with a family who wont judge me based on my appearance or breed=) I am a very sweet dog who is currently being fostered with small children and dogs of all sizes, cats, and even small reptiles. Rocky has been examined by multiple veterinarians who concur that surgery is not necessary and that his leg causes him no pain. Activities I enjoy are running and playing with toys and my family. People would describe me as: Curious, Playful, Social butterfly, Active, Lap Loving. My adoption fee is $200 which covers all of my medical care including neuter, microchip, rabies, vaccinations, and de-wormers.
We only consider your home for adoption after we receive an application. Once this is complete we then move on in the process to adopting your new best friend. Once we receive an application we review it to see if the particular dog(s) might be a good fit for your home/lifestyle and that you meet the required needs of the dog. Once this is done we proceed to check veterinary references. This is to ensure that pets you have or have had in the past were cared for, altered, and up to date with necessary medical care. Once you have been through this initial screening we then set up a home visit to ensure that the home is a safe home with little concern about their personality matching yours. We also want to ensure that the home is set up for the same energy levels or medical needs they may or may not have (dog that can't climb stairs, or not enough room to walk, etc.) These steps are important to ensuring that we are finding the proper home for the dog to be FURever!
A few requirements of adoption are:
*We currently do not adopt out of state. *We do not adopt to homes with smoking indoors due to health concerns for the pets *Our 'bully' breed adoptions require you to be a homeowner, have a fully fenced yard (not invisible fencing) unless you have acreage, and you are required to attend an obedience training class. This is due to the high rate of returns in dogs that are not properly exercised or trained and make it difficult to re-home. *We are a registered not for profit and do not earn a salary, our adoption fees are recycled to help rescue our future dogs. We are always looking for assistance on our team as well as donations to help run our rescue smoothly.
Frequently Asked Questions:
1. I applied to adopt a pitbull but we have an invisible fence not a solid fencing, can we still adopt?
-unfortunately invisible fencing is not full proof fencing and does not protect your own dogs from other loose dogs entering your property. Many dogs get out of invisible fencing and then are too afraid to return back to the yard, and there are just too many concerns with the bully breed to put them at risk.
2. Do you negotiate on your adoption fees? If I want to take the dog to my own vet for spay/neuter can I get a discount on adoption fees?
-Unfortunately 80% or more of our dogs cost hundreds more than we actually adopt them out for. When a dog has a major medical concern the rescue pays out of our adoption funds to get the dog the necessary help it needs to get it to an 'adoptable' status. We rely heavily on donations and adoption fees to be able to care for these dogs who otherwise would have died, so we are insistant on our fees staying the same in order to continue rescuing future dogs. Without the set fee we are unable to rescue, and cannot afford basic care on dogs. Please understand that very few dogs (even ones that ar
