A sweetheart looking for a foster home!

by Joseph Romero on October 31, 2013

Name: Roxie
Breed: American Pit Bull
Age: 6 months old
Foster period: 3-4 months

Roxie is a wonderful 6 month old American Pit Bull puppy that is in need of a foster home while being treated for Demodex. You may remember Demodex from previous posts, it’s a non-contagious skin condition that is brought on by a microscopic mite. The mite attacks the hair follicle which leads to the animal losing some of its fur. It may sound a little on the scary side but all Roxie needs, above and beyond any typical fostering experience, is a daily oral medication and a bath twice a week. Yep, that’s it! That’s all it takes to get those pesky little mites under control.

Not only is Roxie already crate trained but she is friendly with all dogs, regardless of their size. She is currently in a play group with a little 5 pound dog as well as a 100 pound dog. Little Roxie tips the scales at just under 30 pounds so she is not quite into midsized dog territory just yet, maybe more of a compact. 🙂 Anyway, please let us know if you are interested in taking this super sweet dog into your home and we’ll take it from there.

Thank you

Adult cat looking for a little break from shelter life

Fostered stamp 2
Name: Mya
Breed: Domestic Short Hair
Age: 3 years old
Foster period: 3-4 weeks

Two weeks back Mya arrived at our doorstep dehydrated, lethargic, emaciated and anemic. We rushed her into our veterinary clinic and began treatment immediately. After a week of fluids and supportive care she made a major turn around and is now well on the road to recovery. At this point we are looking for a foster home for the next 3-4 weeks for her to pack on the pounds. Once that happens, we can get her into our spay/neuter clinic and then up to our adoption center to find a forever home.

Mya is an absolute sweetheart so this is going to be an easy, straight forward foster experience. We’ll give you food, toys, whatever you’d like to help make this transition as easy as possible. Please let us know if you would like to take Mya into your home and we can schedule a meeting.

Thanks again!
