PLEASE REFER TO THE CONTACT INFORMATION IN THE PROFILE BELOW TO INQUIRE ABOUT ADOPTING.Drake does really well around other dogs. We have consistently taken him in for day care 2-4 times per week and have never experienced any issues. He participates in open format boarding regularly and does very well. He also does very well in dog parks.He has limited experience around children as far as we are aware.Drake is fully housebroken and has completed his Basic Obedience Class training at Bark Bark Club with Kim Schiro (http://www.kimsdogcoaching.com/staff.html). He also complete his Front Class. He's VERY smart and observant and loves to learn. Certificates available. He is in perfect health as certified by our Veterinarian and has full coverage insurance at 90% through Figo with partial preventative office visit coverage. He was cleared of any hip dysplasia and is therefore insured against it. He has no preexisting conditions. His insurance follows him and we will ask that the new owners maintain the coverage at its current level so that Drake can keep consistent coverage.He is not on any medication, however we are currently investigation to which foods he may have mild allergies. He's eating a hypo allergenic diet from Hills that is no more expensive that other high quality foods.Unfortunately with busy work schedules we cannot give him the time he needs to be successful. He's a very smart and loving dog and we've never had any issues with his temper. He requires an active home where he can spend time outside running and playing if possible. He's fully insured and with a certified clean bill of health and his insurance policy will follow with him.

In order to alleviate the need to bring an animal into the shelter environment, The Anti-Cruelty Society has developed the new Home-to-Home Shelter Bypass service to help people find new accommodations for their pets privately. THESE ANIMALS ARE NOT LOCATED IN ANY OF THE SOCIETY'S PHYSICAL SHELTER LOCATIONS. PLEASE REFER TO THE CONTACT INFORMATION IN THE PROFILE BELOW TO INQUIRE ABOUT ADOPTING.Whenever I try to explain Maggie to others, I always say that she must have been a dog in her past life. She comes when you call her name, she wants to play all the time, and she loves attention. The red dot laser, and shoe laces are her favorite toys. Maggie lived with another female cat the first 2 years that I had her. They constantly played, licked each other, and cuddled together. I've never seen her be aggressive towards other animals. She tends to be timid towards other animals and people these days-- probably because I haven't exposed her to many other cats or dogs. She's not aggressive at all, though. I trained her as a kitten to be very submissive and non-aggressive. She's never bitten myself, my roommates, the doctor, strangers, or anyone. Take vet visits, for instance. She never hisses or bites the doctors. Instead, she will just try to hide and run out of their arms. And then even after that, she's rubbing her body on their legs like nothing happened. She just likes good energy. If she's insecure when visiting a new place (like being boarded or my parent's house) she will just hide until she gets comfortable, then she's her normal self. She hasn't been around any children for years. Though with knowing her behavior, her training, and her past with other animals and strangers, I can confidently say that she will not be aggressive towards children, even if they grab her tail or poke her (I do it all the time when playing with her).So far, all vet visits have come back with healthy lab results. Her only condition, which must be genetic, is that she had a lot of gingivitis, and some diseased teeth that had to be pulled. Many of her teeth are gone now, so I only feed her wet food. (Her favorite is the 3oz Purina wet food with gravy). I don't recommend feeding her solid food because she'll swallow it whole and that won't digest well. She may need more dental work in the future if she gets more gingivitis. Some food additives to help keep teeth clean can keep the gingivitis at bay.Maggie is litter box trained. Even when taking her to a family member's house for a weekend and bringing the litter dome, if I show her where it is and keep her in the same room as it for an hour, she has never had any "accidents" outside of the litter box.I am putting Maggie up for adoption for a couple reasons: I'm not home that often to give her the attention she looks for so I feel awful that she's always home alone most of the day without a playmate, and I cannot afford to take care of her anymore. I would rather try to set her up for a home-to-home adoption instead of give her up at a shelter.

In order to alleviate the need to bring an animal into the shelter environment, The Anti-Cruelty Society has developed the new Home-to-Home Shelter Bypass service to help people find new accommodations for their pets privately. THESE ANIMALS ARE NOT LOCATED IN ANY OF THE SOCIETY'S PHYSICAL SHELTER LOCATIONS. PLEASE REFER TO THE CONTACT INFORMATION IN THE PROFILE BELOW TO INQUIRE ABOUT ADOPTING.After a full year of trying to introduce Marty to a new home and another cat, we have come to the conclusion that he would be better off in another environment. I have had Marty since he was a kitten, and he has never been exposed to children, however based on his general temperament I can assume that he would do better with older children who can respect his boundaries. He mostly loves to nap and hang out but can also be very active when he plays- if he joins a household with another cat, he would probably be happiest with one that also loves to play! Marty has gotten along with other cats in the past, including a younger cat he lived with for three years. Unfortunately we have decided that having to keep him separated from our other cat is not giving Marty the space or attention he needs to be happy. Marty is a sweet and affectionate cat and if you have the time for him, he will enrich your life just as he has enriched ours.Kevin Boots 708-218-4379kevinwboots@gmail.comThe Anti-Cruelty Society makes no claims regarding the people using this service or the animals presented here.

In order to alleviate the need to bring an animal into the shelter environment, The Anti-Cruelty Society has developed the new Home-to-Home Shelter Bypass service to help people find new accommodations for their pets privately. THESE ANIMALS ARE NOT LOCATED IN ANY OF THE SOCIETY'S PHYSICAL SHELTER LOCATIONS. PLEASE REFER TO THE CONTACT INFORMATION IN THE PROFILE BELOW TO INQUIRE ABOUT ADOPTING.This is Rambo! He's a big, clumsy, cuddly meathead of a dog. He's a great walking partner and loves being outside. Rambo has attended boot camp and knows basic commands, and he is very food motivated. He is crate trained, house trained and loves looking out the front window. Rambo is a strong boy on a leash and would love a fenced yard! Due to his strength, size and occasional clumsiness Rambo would do best in a home with older children.Rambo would do best in a home with an experienced owner and would need to be the only pet in the home. Though he currently lives with three cats (he is kept separate from them) and three dogs (all females) he is not fond of many other dogs and would like do best as the only pet in the home. Rambo is neutered, up to date on vaccinations and is healthy with no current medications.
