If you're interested in adopting, which includes an adoption trial, please go to our website, review the Adoption Process page and complete the application: www.RuralAnimalRescueEffort.org *Please understand that applications will be considered before any general inquiries due to limited time and resources. We are a foster based rescue. The application is important and necessary to help us determine the right fit for you and your family! Meet Carmen! All the great things: Carmen is a sweet and beautiful Staffordshire Terrier mix.  She is 4 years old and weighs 47 pounds.  She’s a petite lady!  She was abandoned in the middle of the road because her young owner decided he didn’t want the responsibility of caring for a dog anymore.  She loves running around and playing in a fenced in yard.   She is happy outside or inside, wherever her humans are.  Her foster home has 3 dogs, 1 cat and 2 children (10 and 16) and she is doing great with all of them.  She loves to play and snuggle and give lots of kisses, and of course get her belly rubbed!  She is house trained and sleeps through the night in her crate. Things to know: Carmen is still learning her new name, getting better every day.  She is learning to walk on a leash and is doing really well.  She is also learning how to sit and ring a bell at the door when she needs to go outside.  She will need someone who can continue her training.  She sometimes gets nervous when she meets new people so she will need her human to reassure her that she is safe.  She gets very nervous when she goes to the vet and may require medication ahead of time to help her relax.  She is currently on proin to help her with spay related leaking of urine.  It’s a very small amount and the medicine is really helping.   The vet says she will be able to eventually come off of it. Best fit: Carmen would love a home with other dogs that love to play and a family that loves to spend time with her.  She loves to always be close to her humans and be a part of their day.  She would also benefit from a home where her humans can continue to train her on all the great things she’s learned already. If you are interested in meeting Carmen, please visit RuralAnimalRescueEffort.org to read our Adoption Process page and complete the Dog Adoption Application. Adoption Fee: $185.00 Carmen is spayed, up to date on vaccines, heartworm tested (and kept on heartworm preventative), and microchipped. **PLEASE NOTE: We are a non-profit organization without municipal or government funding.

If you're interested in adopting, which includes an adoption trial, please go to our website, review the Adoption Process page and complete the application: www.RuralAnimalRescueEffort.org *Please understand that applications will be considered before any general inquiries due to lack of time and resources. We are an all-volunteer based rescue. The application is important and necessary to help us determine the right fit for you and your family! Meet Glenda! Glenda is around one to two years old and 37 lbs. She will be your little guardian, full of desire to please her human. She has a good amount of energy, not too hyper, and can be very playful when you want her to be. Once she bonds to her human(s), she really bonds to them and will do anything for them! When Glenda first came into our program, she was highly aggressive towards other dogs, but not humans whatsoever.  Now, after a couple of months in foster care, she spends most of the day with 3 dogs and 1 cat. She eveb annoys the dogs sometimes because she wants to lick their faces too much,  In the early evening, the neighbor’s dog comes & runs the pasture with her. The cat sleeps within 3 feet of her crate. She is crate trained and does not have accidents in the house. However, she still will chew out of boredom when unsupervised.  She had to be taught not to harm ducks and the 1 cat she sees regularly. She will chase the other cats and chickens. She learns fast and with daily training, she will make a wonderful companion, especially for an active, outdoorsy person.  She will sit for a treat. Needs work for leading and “come” command - a challenge if she has her mind on something else. She responds quickly to “no” if she gives chase to a cat or poultry. The aggression toward animals that she doesn’t know (not her pack) is a challenge. She is very disruptive in a veterinary clinic or grooming waiting room. She seems to not want another animal near her human. She has some anxiety if she things you are leaving her & lashes out at any other animal...routine helps this. She’s protective of her food bowl even with ‘her’ cat, likely with a child, too; but, oddly, not with her pack-dogs so much. She loads and rides well in a vehicle. She would be a blessing to an experienced dog owner, someone with patience and understanding while she adjusts. Please visit RuralAnimalRescueEffort.org to view our Adoption Process page and complete the Dog Adoption Application. Glenda's adoption fee is $65.00 I am spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccines, heartworm tested, kept on heartworm preventative and micro-chipped prior to adoption.  In order to meet or adopt me, please complete the online application at RuralAnimalRescueEffort.org **PLEASE NOTE: We are a non-profit organization without municipal or government funding.

Meet Kash!  This handsome boy is such a cool dude! Kash is about a year old. 50 lbs and very athletic. Kash is deaf, but he is very smart and eager to please. He is trained with basic sign language that anyone can quickly learn! He knows commands like "sit", "stay", "wait", "ok", "come", and more! He also seems to hear high pitches, so that can also be useful. Kash is an energetic dog that wants to be near his people most of the time. So, if you're looking for a jogging companion or someone to take long walks with, then Kash is your boy! He barks at times when he is unsure or board, so an apartment would not be ideal for Kash.  He does need a secure yard with high fences, but his long legs make Kash a strikingly handsome guy. Everyone comments on how handsome he is – he’s a real head turner.  If you would like to meet Kash to see if he would be a good fit for you or your family, please visit www.ruralanimalrescueeffort.org  Kash is neutered, up to date on vaccines, kept on heartworm preventative and micro-chipped prior to adoption.  His adoption fee is $85.00. **An application and home visit/meet & greet are required.**  **PLEASE NOTE: We are a non-profit organization without municipal or government funding.

Male Young Labrador Retriever (mixed)

If you're interested in adopting, which includes an adoption trial, please go to our website, review the Adoption Process page and complete the application: www.RuralAnimalRescueEffort.org *Please understand that applications will be considered before any general inquiries due to limited time and resources. We are a foster based rescue. The application is important and necessary to help us determine the right fit for you and your family! Meet Loverboy! All the great things:  Loverboy is a Labrador mix and he is around 2 years old, full grown at 50 lbs. He is super loving to his people and goes "gung ho" for his tennis ball! But, he will patiently wait for you to throw it for him. He is very intelligent and is learning to retrieve the tennis ball and return it to his foster when called. He also sits and waits while his food is being provided until given an "ok" to go ahead and eat his breakfast and dinner. Loverboy is fully crate trained and doing well in the house.  Things to know:  Loverboy is medium energy and needs some exercise, as most dogs do. He would love a fenced yard to run and play ball in or go for walks, runs, etc. with his person. One thing to be aware of is that he sometimes does protective type barking to new people when INSIDE his crate, but not outside of his crate or at a fence. He normally loves all people; he just may feel confined and unsure when in his crate. Loverboy is good with submissive female dogs. He can be a big brother or be the only dog. He's more of a people dog, that's why we call him Loverboy!   Best Fit:  Loverboy would do great with a person or family that can give him some exercise and then chill time as well. He's a lab mix, so he does love to play ball and would love for someone to throw one for him and interact with him on a daily basis.  If you are interested in meeting Loverboy, please visit RuralAnimalRescueEffort.org to read our Adoption Process page and complete the Dog Adoption Application. Adoption Fee: $85.00. Loverboy is neutered, up to date on vaccines, heartworm tested (and kept on heartworm preventative), and microchipped. **PLEASE NOTE: We are a non-profit organization without municipal or government funding.

Please read my story below. If you would like to meet me to see if I'm the right fit for you, APPLY today at RuralAnimalRescueEffort.org! *Please understand that applications will be considered before any general inquiries due to lack of time and resources. We are an all volunteer based rescue. The application is important and necessary to help us determine the right fit for you and your family! Hey!! Yes, you! Over here! My name is Max. I am a stunningly handsome and stocky Staffordshire Terrier. I do best with puppies and playful/submissive dogs. If you have a young puppy and want an older brother for him or her to play with and show the ropes, I'm your boy! I am about 2 1/2 years old and 65 lbs. I am house trained and all I like to really chew on are my toys! I currently live in a foster home with other dogs, but spend my time with the puppies for the most part. I have had issues with other dominant dogs, especially dominant adult males. Puppies are my favorite because we start from the basics and just start playing and loving each other immediately. We can just play and enjoy each other's company. Whenever a new foster puppy sibling comes in, I'm the most thrilled to meet and welcome them. I am the puppy greeter & the pre-rinse cycle for all dishes and I take both jobs very seriously!!! I also love eating carrots and getting belly rubs. I love all people and children. I know would protect my people if they were ever in danger and they needed my help, but I am very friendly to people who come to visit or that I meet on walks. I am a cat chaser, so no cats please! I am a pretty strong fellow, so if I go on walks I will need to continue my leash training so I don't pull. A fenced yard is a must for me so I can stretch my legs when I need to and not have any unwelcomed dogs roam into my family's yard. I know all sorts of commands and I am eager to learn. You should see me do "sit", "shake", "down" and more! My adoption fee is $85.00. I am neutered, up to date on vaccines, kept on heartworm preventative and micro-chipped prior to adoption. **PLEASE NOTE: We are a non-profit organization without municipal or government funding.

We are an all-volunteer based rescue. The application is important and necessary to help us determine the right fit for you and your family! It's Miller time! He's tall, he's blonde and ever so handsome! With his dashing good looks and award winning smile, Miller is out to steal someone's heart! Miller is a 3-4 yr old Yellow Labrador mixed with something a little on the larger side and weighs 75 lbs. He is great with children. Miller loves meeting new people. He is currently in a foster home with small children who he is amazing with, but they are used to larger dogs. Miller would love a home with a 6ft fenced yard (he can jump over anything smaller) and a person or family to play in the backyard with him. Hanging out in the house is fine too! He also loves ice cubes and belly rubs. Of course, he is always up for some cuddle time. Miller also said he is very eager to show you all the learning he has done. He knows basic commands such as "sit" and "come" and is learning more every day. He is completely crate trained and house trained. Although Miller has never met a person he didn't fall in love with, he is a bit more selective about furry friends. He seems to do well with most medium size dogs but not so well with larger dogs, small dogs or cats. He would do best as the only animal in the home and be your one and only. Miller will be your best friend and he will be more than enough of a companion than ten dogs. You will rush home to see this handsome guy greet you at your door! To apply for Miller, please visit our website: www.RuralAnimalRescueEffort.org Miller's adoption fee is $65.00. He is neutered, UTD on vaccines, and microchipped. **PLEASE NOTE: We are a non-profit organization without municipal or government funding.

Please read my story below. If you would like to meet me to see if I'm the right fit for you, apply today at RuralAnimalRescueEffort.org! *Please understand that applications will be considered before any general inquiries due to lack of time and resources. We are an all volunteer based rescue. The application is important and necessary to help us determine the right fit for you and your family! Welcome! My name is Suzie Lu. My eyes are a little off center and sometimes I look off to the side, rather than looking straight at you. However, that really doesn't make me "special needs" because I can still see just fine. It only makes me unique and more interesting. In addition to my goofy smile, I have a silly personality that you cannot help but laugh at, in a good way! I am still a puppy and I can be a little mouthy when it comes to play, so I need my people to be strict and not let me mouth their hands and arms. I love my toys and they keep me occupied and away from chewing things like shoes or pillows. They are sort of like a pacifier for me at times. I am around 1 year and I am full grown at 43 lbs. I came from a strange situation where several dogs were abandoned, had puppies and then have been surviving on their own for some time. After only a day of being in my foster home, it was like I lived there all along! I acclimated immediately to home living and I am excellent in my crate when my foster mom is at work. I was unsure of the other dog in the foster home at first, but our crates were next to each other and we gradually got used to having each other as neighbors during nap time and our foster mom's work time. Now, we are best buddies and play in the yard like we are siblings! It may take a couple days, or a few minutes, it all just depends on the other dog's personality. A RARE volunteer will make sure the introduction goes well if you have dogs already in your family. I love to cuddle, as you can see in my video! If you would like to meet me and see if I could be your Furever girl, please apply today!

He can still go hiking, etc. with a long lead, which we have for him and he is just like any other fun loving family dog in all other respects, but just extra special.   If you are interested in meeting Takoda, please visit RuralAnimalRescueEffort.org to read our Adoption Process page and complete the Dog Adoption Application.  We are looking forward to helping you find the newest member of your family!
