Meet Luke!

Luke is one of several puppies available. They will all likely be large dogs when fully grown.

The pups are parasite free, inside and out. Interceptor heartworm preventative is given the first of each month. Everyone is microchipped. Their main diet consists of high quality, dry puppy food and plenty of treats. Rawhide, squeaky latex toys and plush toys are favorites. Raw carrots are a snack that everyone enjoys.


All the puppies have the run of the shelter during the day and go in and out as they choose. Everyone shares at the food bowls. They come when they are called and each one is praised for doing so. The puppies are very good at entertaining themselves and it is obvious that they enjoy the hours that they can play together and explore. The wading pools are very popular for taking the plunge and cooling off. Thunder and lightening does not bother them. Playing in the rain is major fun.

All the pups are very social with every volunteer or visitor. Being cuddled, petted or played with is always the very best part of the day for each one of them. They are alert, curious and happy. Crate training is progressing well. A visible, secure, fenced yard is preferred.

We found Luke through Animal Placement Agency of the Windsors in West Windsor, New Jersey.

Meet Buster!

Looking for a furry someone to cuddle with? Well, look no further, Buster Beagle is here.


Buster is a charming 1.5 year old beagle who loves to romp and play with his foster beagle siblings and then curl up with his foster mom on the couch when he is worn out from that.

He is super sweet and affectionate with people he knows, but he does tend to be a bit reserved around strangers until he gets to know them. In the two weeks that Buster has been in the program, his foster mom has never heard him bark. He only whines when she first leaves for work or when she returns, but is very quiet otherwise.

We found Buster through the SPCA / Humane Society of Prince Georges County MD in Bowie, Maryland.

Meet Angel!

Angel is a 10 year old Eskimo Dog, who is housetrained, and good with other dogs and cats. He gets visibly uncomfortable around children, so he would be better in a home with adults.

Her rescuers aren't sure exactly why his former owner gave him up after after all this time. As part of the Spitz family, Eskies are intelligent and alert, but need regular brushing in order to look their best. Although officially a senior, Angel certainly doesn't act his age and this cute little guy will make a loving and warm companion for someone for years to come.

We found Angel through Animal Connections in Troy, Virginia.

Meet Monty!

They are estimated to be 4 months old. It would be ideal to adopted these two brothers together, since they appear very dependent on one another for comfort and support. However, independent adoption will also be considered.

We found Monty through the Braxton County Animal Shelter in Sutton, West Virginia.

I am generous with my kisses and thrive on belly rubs. I am an active, strong boy who likes every toy on the planet. I'm a great jogging buddy, too! I do well with other dogs and am learning to not chase the cat. I tend to jump around for joy when I am excited. Im very smart and attentive and even remember where you have carefully hidden the treats from me!

I know sit, shake, stay and speak. I am protective of my people and my yard but am a friendly boy when I know you are invited to be here. I like car rides now that I know we're going on adventures together. I got a chance to try my paw at agility recently and I looked pretty good out there!"

Meet Charleston!

Charleston is a sweet and affectionate girl. She hasn't been around any cats or kids. She is a medium energy girl who enjoys playing (she is still technically a puppy after all) but is happiest when she's hanging out with her humans.


She is great with dogs, but her playfulness may annoy older or laid back dogs. She is submissive, but friendly towards people. She was crate trained, but may need a refresher course to get her back on track as she spends most of her time outside. She is approx 40 lbs and her rescuers don't expect her to get any bigger. She occassionally will dig in the dirt to get cool, but does not dig to get out of the fenced in yard. Car rides make her a bit nervous, but she doesn't get car sick

Learn CPR for your dog!

Knowing how to perform CPR (or Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation) and the Heimlich Maneuver on your dog are two of the most important things you can know to help save your dog when they are choking or stop breathing!


Dogs can stop breathing for a variety of reasons, everything from electrocution to choking to drowning or an accident. And they can choke from ingesting toys or even large treats.

Please bone up on the basics and check out our Squidoo lens - Learning CPR for your Dog. It's always good to be prepared, you may just be able to save your dog's life!


Meet Pounder!

Pouncer is a special guy that has been pulled from the animal shelter in Newport, Tennessee. He is safe in a friend's boarding facility, but we need some help in getting him placed.


Pouncer is a Boxer/Am Bulldog mix who is full of personality and love. Unfortunately, he has also lost an eye and is mostly deaf. He was sponsored at the last minute, so he has been completely vetted and is heartworm negative.

Pouncer is a very special boy!! He is a 60 lb, boxer/American Bull Dog mix who lived his whole life on a chain. Pouncer is about two years old and has a very outgoing personality! He just loves everyone and is very affectionate. Like many mostly white dogs, Pouncer is partially deaf and due to an eye injury, only has vision in one eye. It doesn't slow him down at all and Pounce is learning obedience with hand signals.

Pouncer is completely healthy otherwise and has been neutered, has all of his shots, a microchip and is heartworm negative. Pounce is also good in the car and loves to be washed and brushed. As he is a strong boy with a lot of puppy in him, Pouncer would not do well with small children.

We found Pounder through Middle Tennessee Boxer Rescue in Brentwood, Tennessee.

Everybody Rally-O!

Have you heard about Rally-O? It's a great sport for any dog, young or old.


Originally devised by Charles L. "Bud" Kramer, Rally Obedience is a form of dog obedience with a twist - a total focus on fun and excitement for the dog, handler and spectator.

Dog and handler teams follow a set course, performing the exercise indicated by 10-20 consecutive signs. Signs are numbered to indicate the course the handler and dog take during the performance.
