Beautiful Fiona is the type of dog who brings you to a place of appreciation for each of life’s precious moments. She is a gorgeous 5 year old terrier mix who weighs around 35 pounds. Fiona began life being dealt a very unfortunate hand as she suffered from a spinal injury at only a year old that left her partially paralyzed. Sadly, in the few years following, she spent most of her time isolated and without much interaction. During the few months she has been with us, Fiona has done much better with her mobility as she is strengthening her hind legs through physical therapy every day. She continues to impress us with her resilience and we believe that with ongoing physical therapy, her mobility will continue to improve. Fiona likes other furry friends but prefers to be the queen of the caste. This sweet girl thrives most with a strict routine, older children, and someone who is home often. She loves her toys, belly rubs, and is only one spoonful of peanut butter away from being your new best friend. Fiona may not have been given the greatest start to life but we know there is a family out there who can make her so happy that she forgets all about the life she had before. At this time, Fiona is looking for a foster or a foster-to-adopt home in the central Florida area. If interested in learning more, please fill out our screening form below. show less

  Big things come in small packages and in Howie’s case, that means a lot of endless love. If your heart is truly longing for a companion, this cute fella is just waiting to fill that void. Howie is an adorable 11.5-year-old Boston terrier mix who weighs around 26 pounds. His ideal family would be home often as he feels safest being by the side of those he loves. He starts his day by enjoying a quick sprint in the yard before sprawling out to sunbathe and nap. Howie prefers a laid-back life that includes soft beds & plenty of treats. He has a more independent personality but doesn’t mind the company of other dogs or cats as long as they will give him space. Being an older gentleman, Howie does have a few medical needs such as being blind and deaf with the beginning signs of dementia but most days, it doesn’t hinder his curious demeanor one bit. This sweet boy just wants a friend to curl up near and give him nothing but love for a lifetime. Howie is such a deserving little nugget and is anxiously awaiting the moment when he finds his perfect person. If you live within an hour of Lake Mary, FL, and are interested in spending your time showing Howie what love is all about, please fill out our adoption screening form on our website HERE.  Howie is also in need of a committed foster home. If interested, please fill out a screening form HERE or email info@mettarescuefamily.org for more information.  show less

Are you looking for a new friend with a stellar personality? Look no further!  Kahlo is the type of dog that could totally change your life. She has the ability to put a smile on any face and her bubbly personality will melt your heart in seconds. She is a huge fan of belly rubs and her most favorite pastime is giving endless kisses. Kahlo is a year old and weighs about 40lbs. She came to the rescue after suffering from a severe spinal cord injury that left her back end paralyzed. She now rocks a diaper and a cute little wheelchair to help her get around. Some people might be taken back by her disability but not Kahlo, she strives to lead the most normal life possible; never letting anything get her down. With the right family, Kahlo will continue to beat the odds and change the world around her. The unconditional love she possesses allows her to accept every person and animal she meets. She is a true sweetheart! Kahlo is now looking for her foster-to-adopt family who owns their home in the central Florida area, where she won't be left home alone for more than a few hours at a time. Could you be that extra special family she is looking for? If so, please fill out our adoption screening form: https://mettarescuefamily.org/adoptable-dogs show less

Magnolia is the perfect fit for the virtue ~ “good things come to those who wait". This gal is a stunning 3-year old Mountain Cur mix who weighs around 66 pounds. Being the type of lady who knows her value, she prefers to make you work for her love. It comes as no surprise considering she has moved mountains during her journey with us. She had FHO surgery on both hips which has helped her to finally step out of a pain ridden life and into her true self. Magnolia is an extremely resilient dog and an inspiration to us all. Her ideal home would be one with a comfy couch and no small children or small pets as they can make her a little nervous. She would also love having a fenced in yard for more security and freedom to sunbathe as she pleases. It may seem like sweet Magnolia is a little high maintenance, but in all reality, true patience and understanding is what will benefit her most. In a world where we often judge a book by its cover, Magnolia is asking you to dig deeper and the gift in return will more than suffice. This girl has endless potential and we just know the right family is out there for her. If you own your home within an hour of Lake Mary, FL and are interested in giving Magnolia a much deserved happily ever after, please fill out our screening form here: https://mettarescuefamily.org/adoptable-dogs  show less
