Featured Dog – Adele

Adele is an 11 years old sweetheart and has been here at the rescue with us since she was SIX MONTHS old! Why? She’s a black pit mix and people just cruise right on by her kennel as if she isn’t even there.  This senior lady is so EASY, she’s laid back, low maintenance, would be a wonderful FOREVER FOSTER for an older person looking for a great companion. She deserves to be an only companion and receive all of the doting and lovin’ all for herself.

Available for adoption, foster, forever foster. Adele is SO gentle and relaxed  – she needs to know a home in her final years; can you please be that home?


We are a 501c3 animal rescue and sanctuary dedicated to ending the senseless killing of animals who have been discarded by society and place them into loving homes where they will be cared for for the rest of their lives.   The rescue is able to operate through donations, fundraising, and grants that we are able to secure. We do not receive government funding of any kind and, are in constant need of financial and volunteer assistance to ensure the dogs get the care and attention they deserve.

Please take a moment to review our site to see how you may be able to help.  No donation is too small —No time donated to help is too little —the dogs and rescue director are thankful for any assistance.  All donations are Tax Deductible!  With YOUR help we can educate the public in proper care of our canine companions, provide assistance to pets whose families have fallen on hard times, and make a difference in the life of one dog at a time through rescue, rehabilitation when necessary, and adoption.

Thank you!
