Adopting A Shelter Dog

These dogs come without background histories/ past medical information. We present these dogs as we have observed in relationship to age, size, breed, behavior, housebreaking, crate training, good with children, cats, dogs, and strangers. Dogs may present themselves differently in different environments, therefore The Dog Spot Rescue, their agents, volunteers, can not guarantee behavior, age, size expectations, breed, house Training, destructive behavior tendencies, and/or medical issues. All dogs from shelters have been subjected to pathogens from the shelter level which can materialize into disease in the future.  Each adopter must observe for themselves pre-adoption and make decisions for themselves the suitability of said dog and their tolerance levels for transitional time when adopting a shelter dog.  We ask that each adopter take their time when making the choice to bring home a rescued dog.

Tiny Cupcake was in the shelter, out of time, being euthanized. She needed a miracle. Through a sponsor, she was able to get off that list and into our rescue program. Cupcake is a 2-3 year old 4 pound Chihuahua. Very small, a bit thin, she is exhausted, sad, and a bit worried about what comes next. We wrapped her into a towel and made her a 'Taco' and held her close to let her know it will be okay. She looked up with those big eyes and the tip of her tail wagged. Still trembling, she let us know she believed we were there to help. This little girl is looking for a warm soft lap where she can rest and recover. She would love a nice quiet home and her own person that she can love forever.
Adoption is $200 and includes her spay, rabies, worming, shots, heartworm test, microchip and all dogs go home on a two week trial.

Your Adoption Fee covers the following expenses: Spay/Neuter, DHLPP, Bordatella, Rabies (if age appropriate), De-worming and Frontline/Advantage

Please Note: Shelter/rescue dogs have been exposed to many pathogens such as kennel cough, parasites, diseases and conditions some of which may not have been discovered prior to adoption. Any dog that shows symptoms here at TDS are routinely identified, taken for tests and treatment. Our vet bills can exceed $10,000 a month. However, without symptoms, we may miss a disease, or pre-existing condition or parasite. Consider carefully if you have the tolerance for these possibilities. We consider, you, the adopters, the last leg of the rescue process.
