Dash is oh so dashing! This sweet boy came to the rescue from the county shelter where he was declining so much in that stressful environment that he was self-harming by chewing his legs and tail causing open, infected wounds. As soon as we heard his story, we knew we had to get him in an environment where he could thrive. After a little TLC from his foster, he's now a typical 3-year-old with playful energy, a goofy disposition, and has a ton of love to share. His foster says he's always right by her side and is a professional cuddle bug. Dash is dog and kid-friendly. If you're interested in adopting Dash, once he's medically cleared, and you own your own home with a fenced-in yard within an hour of Lake Mary, FL, please fill out an adoption application here: https://mettarescuefamily.org/adoptable-dogs

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 castle. 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.

PLEASE don't overlook such an amazing and resilient pup! Regardless of her rough start to life, Lucha has never once given up hope. She has more than lived up to her full name; Luchadora which translates to “fighter”. She is a precious 1.5-year-old terrier mix who weighs around 30 pounds. This tough girl now rocks a cute wheelchair to get around easier yet she is still faster than the speed of lightning. Diapers nor wheelchairs can bring Lucha down! She is unstoppable and a true inspiration to all. With a heart of gold, she gets along great with other dogs, cats, and older children. She loves spending her days chasing lizards, greeting the neighbors on walks, and playing with her favorite toys. She is an expert cuddler and prefers a warm lap over anything. Life improves drastically with Lucha in it and we just know that there is a special family out there for this one of a kind girl! Special Needs: Lucha was found abandoned next to a dumpster with severe injuries and in dire need of medical attention. Thanks to the quick thinking and kind hearts of the local firemen who found her, her life was saved from certain death. After further diagnostics, X-rays concluded that Lucha has a congenital defect that was likely present at birth. Some of the vertebrae are pushed together very tightly resulting in partial paralysis. Lucha still has some movement of her tail but does not have full control over her urine or stools. Lucha is seeking a family that is home most of the day as she does require more attention than a typical dog. She will gladly reward her family with plenty of kisses in return! If you live in the central Florida area, own your home, and think Lucha may be the right pup for you, please fill out a screening form found here: https://mettarescuefamily.org/adoptable-dogs

Hi, I'm Tucker and I'm on the hunt for a family who will love me as much as I love them. Some people say I have the most soulful eyes. I love people of all ages, especially children. I absolutely love car rides. The longer the better. I'm the BEST little passenger. I'm completely housetrained. I love to snuggle, cuddle, and I absolutely love to have my belly scratched. I enjoy shorter walks and playtime. Though I am deaf, I am very alert to the things going on around me, and most of the time no one would know that I can't hear. I don't currently live with other animals, but I would probably do well with another dog if we're introduced very slowly and are fed separately. If you think we might make a good match and you own your home within an hour of Lake Mary, FL, please read over our adoption screening process and complete a screening form, both of which can be found here: https://mettarescuefamily.org/adoptable-dogs
