Adopting a dog.

Adopting a dog is a big decision, but if you are ready, we have many wonderful dogs just waiting for someone like you to give them a loving home.  Please consider our special needs dogs, our seniors, and our too long overlooked dogs first. 

Special needs dogs.

Mustafa, at 12 years old, is our oldest resident and is in desperate need of a loving home.  He is a very gentle and affectionate German Shepard, who loves his walks despite having difficulty walking.  He is happiest when you sit with him, scratching his head and neck and giving him treats.   Because of his weak legs, he sometimes has problems getting up for his bowel movements and will require assistance. 

This sweet old soul deserves to spend his remaining years in comfort and love.  If you are that special person to welcome him into your home, please contact Maria at (786) 205-6865.

Senior Dogs

Golda is a very sweet and extra happy girl. Like most Boxers, Golda looooves people and is super excited about everything.  Golda has a wonderful disposition towards people, even if she’s meeting them for the first time. Golda is extremely playful and she needs a lot of exercise and she will be great for an active family. She is a goofy bundle of enthusiasm, so she needs to join a family with adults or older children. Please consider this sweetheart as your next companion.  Contact Maria at 786-205-6865 for more information.
