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.
Sweet older boy looking for that place called home.
Little Tommy looks older than he is. He has had a lot to worry about and it has given him some grey hairs! He was in a shelter with his brother and he was so frightened. Brother was adopted, and Tommy was left alone to a fate unknown. Rescued by TDS, he was brought into our program and we just love him. Timid at first, he is the sweetest little boy. Only 4 pounds, he is a perfect lap buddy. Quiet, excellent with other dogs, ignores cats (most are bigger than him anyway)
We are looking for a person who is patient, has love to give and would like to offer their home and heart to this little boy.
Adoption is $200.00 which includes his neuter, shots, rabies, bordetella, heartworm test, deworming treatment. He comes with a two week post adoption trial.
Please fill out an on line application (see on our menu at: thedogspot.rescuegroups.org. Then contact us by e-mailing us at: email@example.com for a meet and greet appointment. We show dogs every Saturday at our Elk Grove adoption event and often during the week at the foster home. This sweet boy is hoping that someone will be coming for him...
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.
