Adoption Application

Available ~ Alfie
Meet Alfie! Alfie is around 3 years old and he is a big boy weighing in at 70lbs even though is about 20lbs underweight. Alfie was rescued by one of our adoption coordinators from a very bad environment. She tells us that Alfie is really sweet and is starved for food, love and attention. This big guy has lots of energy because he has been tied up to a chain for a very long time. All he wants to do is stretch his legs and run! Since, Alfie is on the larger size and full of spunk, we are looking at applicants for Alfie that have older kids or no kids. Alfie is dog friendly and will be tested with cats. Alfie is crate/house trained, neutered, microchipped and will arrive in New England with all age appropriate shots the beginning of February.

If you can give Alfie the life and love he truly deserves, please fill out an adoption application which can be found here:
Adoption Application

Available ~ Leah
Leah is a beautiful 2-3 year old chocolate lab mix, who was not treated with the love and kindness she deserved until now. Leah has been in our rescue since June and she has made amazing strides since arriving to her current foster family. They have worked with her so hard, and she is now ready to find that very special family of her very own!

Leah is still “jumpy,” startles easily, and probably always will be. If you drop something, she will jump. If there is a sudden loud noise she will also jump. Leah has been wearing a thundershirt, which in her case, has helped tremendously. She is far more relaxed and is learning that she will only be treated with kindness from here on out, will always have her meals each day, and is very treat motivated.

Leah has transformed from a girl in pretty rough physical condition, to a complete beauty. Her fur is now shiny and glossy looking, and she has gained the weight she needed. Leah needs to find a forever home where she is the only dog for you to dote on and also no children because Leah likes a quiet home.

Leah most likely spent her young life in an outdoor kennel, which our vet believes she constantly gnawed on. Due to that, her front teeth are completely ground down to the gum line and one canine tooth is broken off. She also has already had cherry eye surgery, but it did not take, and will need to be done again. Lastly, she has already been treated for her heartworm disease. Due to her heartworm treatment, she can’t undergo further surgery on her eye and teeth until after January. We will discuss this future surgery need further, with potential applicants.

Leah is spayed, microchipped, up-to-date on all her vaccines, and has been heartworm treated. Her future medical needs will include dental surgery and another eye surgery for her cherry eye.

Adoption Application

Available ~ Turbo
Turbo is a very gentle and sweet boy between 1-2 years old. He is about 55 lbs and very happy. We have been told he is good with dogs and walks well on a leash.We don’t know about kitties. Turbo has had a rough life and deserves a good family who will invest in him and take him to puppy classes. He was due to be put down in the shelter he ended up in and NELR stepped up for him. He was probably an ourside dog who didn’t get much attention, He would thrive in a home where he has a routine and he will need a family who be patient and allow him to learn. He does need help learning to cue his owners when he needs to potty outside. Notone has ever cared about Turbo, unitl now….

So please fill out an application today and watch this boy blossom. He is stunning and has a beautiful chocolate coat.
He is up to date on all vaccinations and has been heart worm treated and micro chipped.

If you are interested in adopting this handsome guy please fill out an application today.
Adoption Application

Available ~ Tate
Meet Tate! Tate is giant love who has quickly become the shelter favorite! Tate is 1 years old and weighs around 90 lbs. Tate has been working with the shelter on walking nicely on a leash and riding in a car so he is proving that is very trainable. Tate has absolutely no human aggression, has a nice disposition and is absolutely gorgeous! Since Tate is so physically strong we recommend that he goes to a forever home of an experienced adopter. Tate would highly benefit from obedience training and needs a family that is willing to make the commitment to Tate to help him become the amazing dog we know he can be. Tate is a strong alpha male when it comes to other male dogs and is not too fond of cats. Tate’s forever home will need to be a home that has no cats or other male dogs. Tate is currently being treated for Heartworm, is neutered, will have all age appropriate shots and is scheduled to arrive in New England mid to late February.

Update on Tate: Tate has come a very long way in a short period of time! In just a couple of weeks Tate has made a connection with Joe, who is at the shelter where Tate currently is, which is a really good thing. Tate encountered Joe’s big male bulldog through a chain linked fence and was interested in him but not aggressive. Tate still is a strong Alpha male and can’t be placed in a home with male dogs and/or cats. He also needs a physically strong adopter who is experienced training large dogs since he is up to 95 lbs now. With that being said Tate will not be able to find his forever home with a home with small children either. Tate was a very good car rider for our adoption coordinator Barbara and walked much better for her on the leash. He has a sweet disposition and is such a handsome guy! Tate should be ready to arrive in New England in the middle of February.

If Tate sounds like the right fit for your family, please fill out an adoption application and make him part of your home:

This beautiful dog is one gem of a dog and that is where she gets her name Jewell.
She loves to play ball in the yard, go on long walks and she loves to chew on nylabones.
She is a quick learner and has already learned sit, and if you say crate, she will go right in.
She is pretty good on the leash, but like all labs, could use some training!

She loves to cuddle up on the couch next to you at night, and put her head right on your lap.

Jewell is definitely a people person and is a very smart dog.
A family will be lucky to have her as an addition to their family.
Jewell would be best as the only pet in the house, as she would prefer to be the queen of the castle.
