Hi… my name is Buffy,

Adopted 9-10-18

Comes with FREE Vet Care for Life

It was a dark and scary night, I was lost and alone—a 14-year-old, 8-pound female—when the clock struck midnight and a stranger opened his door to me. Yes, I was scared, but this caring person was willing to help. He tried to find my owner via social media and driving around, but no luck. And since my coat was matted and I needed some medical attention, chances are I’d been “out” for a while. But now I’m safe, and even have a foster dad who’s taking wonderful care of me. We go for walks; he makes sure I’m eating well and shows me loving kindness every day. I have Free Vet Care for Life, and a wise little heart that tells me someone will love me just as I am. Is that you?

Astro is a full bred white lab who needed a new home as owners no longer had time to share with him and his sister, Bella. Lucky for them they were adopted the day they became available by someone who happened to be looking for dogs just like them.

Hi… my name is Wally,

Adopted 6-16-18

When found near a local store, I wasn’t shopping but I had been looking for a friendly face in the crowd. Lucky me, I spotted two! They’re both Animal League volunteers and they knew right away that I’m a “people dog,” that is, a dog who thrives on the company of kind people. An 18-month-old blond Shepherd mix male, I’m lively, enjoy exercise, and interested in the world around me. But here’s my secret: I’ve been a little lonely. That’s why I try to be extra friendly to everyone, hoping they’ll notice me and see what a good dog I’m trying to be. If you’re looking for an attentive, active, eager-to-please dog, then I’m looking for you, too—ready to be your loving, playful, devoted companion for a long time to come.

Hi… my name is Teddy,

Adopted 5-18-18

There were twelve of us—6 young dogs and 6 newborn puppies—left in an abandoned house without food or water in triple-digit heat. Then a door opened. A woman had heard us. She was our first hero, and there would be many more. Indeed, we were in such dire straits that the rescue activity at TALGV by so many people—busy with fluids, cooling, nourishment, whatever we needed—is a bit of a blur. What I know for sure is that our lives were saved that day. Now we each have a future—a chance to thrive, play, give and receive love. I’m a small Poodle mix male, blonde, 9-1/2 pounds, and I’m sure you understand why I’m so ready for a carefree, fun, happy life in a comfy, loving home with you!   (bio needs update)

Hi… my name is Big Buddy,

Has earned his Canine Good Citizen certificate.

I’ve lived up to my name wholeheartedly—weighing about 80 pounds on arrival here and having been a good buddy, protective and devoted, to the single woman at home. But she’s moving and can’t take me along, so sadly gave me up. She says I’ve been a great and gentle companion; leash, crate and house trained, and I like to play. (Hide-and-seek with treats is a favorite.) I’ve not met many other dogs, but do protect my toys and food from other animals and children. Since puppyhood—I’m a 3-year-old Lab mix male—I’ve lived with one woman, and she says a gentle voice and patience work best with me. And we both say you can call me whatever name you choose, as long as you’re my buddy and let me be yours.

Hi… my name is Lionel,

Adopted 5-11-18

When my person moved into assisted living, I was so worried about leaving home that I was described as “scared to death.” Once here, despite gentle reassurances from understanding people, I trembled so hard the toys in my room were shaking, too. Today, if you look in my eyes, you’ll see I’m still worried about strangers, but I also can’t help but be interested in them. Is that one friendly? Does she have any of those tiny biscuits in her pocket? Right now, I’m more comfortable with men, but that doesn’t have to be a permanent thing. Very slowly, I’ve become acquainted with women here and turns out they can be nice, too. I’m a 4-year-old blonde Chihuahua mix male, and if you’re a patient, kind person, I’d love to feel safe again with you.
