10 yr old, 15 lb Rat Terrier SPAYED FEMALE for HOSPICE

 

 

Meet our newest ADOPTABLE HOSPICE dog -- Miss Spitfire Airplane who is fostered in the SF Bay Area of CA.
 
She is adoptable to approved homes ANYWHERE and thanks to our friends at Delta Air Lines and their all-volunteer DART transport team, she can be flown in-cabin to other locations. There is no adoption fee for an approved home.
 
Spitfire is a 10 yr old, 15 lb Rat Terrier Mix SPAYED FEMALE who joins us from San Jose Animal Care Center via San Jose Animal Advocates where she was treated by Tails of a Shelter Vet
 
Spitfire was not spayed by her previous owner and due to this developed multiple mammary masses. One of these was cancerous (intraductal carcinoma) and will be life-limiting. Our vet guesstimates that she has about one year left.
 
She is now spayed, microchipped, vaccinated and has had labwork and a dental cleaning. She is on prednisone daily to slow the cancer and we will provide this for the rest of her life to any adopter. If an adopter is local, we will also provide quarterly chest x-rays at our veterinarian to check for metastasis to her lungs (which is what happens with mammary/breast cancer in dogs).
 
She is looking for a compassionate adopter who is willing to take on the heartbreak because they know that SHE deserves a forever home and a beautiful sunset. She would love someone who would make and help her complete a bucket list with weekly puppacinos and lots of snacks.
 
She is a good girl who is leash, house and crate trained and does well with other dogs. We think she is okay with cats (there are some at our vet clinic but none in her foster home) so we can do more testing for a potential adopter if needed. She loves going in the car and loves to snuggle. She loves all people including the teacup variety.
 
To give Spitfire a place to live the rest of her life please send an email to beourpet@gmail.com
 
If you cannot adopt, please like, comment and share so that she gets in front of as many people as possible.

Umbrella of Hope does not have any strict rules on ages of children because all children are different, but our best approximation is that this animal would do best with children over the age of 5

Umbrella of Hope is a non-profit animal rescue based out of Pittsburg, CA that rescues animals off death row from local shelters. We offer rebates of adoption fees after completion of obedience classes and CGC titles. 

Also, ask us about our seniors for seniors program, where we adopt animals 5 years or older to qualified homes with a $5 donation as an adoption fee. All animals are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, treated for parasites and given any additional treatments (dental work, bloodwork etc) as recommended by our vet. Some of our senior animals have sponsorships for their food/vet care/medicine for the rest of their life at our vet in Pittsburg, CA (94565)

 Adoptions to veterans of the US Armed Services are ALWAYS free to thank you for your service.  Other retired public servants, please let us know what career you retired from and we can let you know if we offer any discounts for your adoption

Please send an email to the Umbrella Of Hope Animal Director with any inquiries at beourpet@gmail.com. Detailed emails will be answered first.  

We thank Maddie's Fund for their sponsorship, Well Pet Vet Clinic for providing most of our veterinary services, Lovely Grooming for our grooming needs, and Delta Dog Camp for training. We thank Memoirs of a Dog and Share the Joy Photography for the beautiful portraits of many of our animals and a special thanks to volunteer photographers Barbara, Kristy, Christine and Natalie.  Please support these businesses for supporting rescue!
