Tommy Boy update
According to Tommys foster Mom, he is just fabulous and will make some lucky family an AWESOME dog!!! Tommy is a mini-Lab we are not sure what he is mixed with but has all the wonderful characteristics of a Lab. He is only about 50 pounds and he is about 2 years old. Tommy is very happy and upbeat but he also will just hang out when the humans do. He loves to play with the other dogs in the foster home and he would be great for a home with kids. He has a healthy curiosity with cats but is not mean or aggressive at all. He LOVES, LOVES, LOVES tennis balls! Tommy is housetrained and is calm in his crate when nobody is home although he now can be trusted to be left out with the other pooches in a gated area. He loves the pool but prefers when his feet can still touch the bottom! But he will get more comfortable there is more swimming is in his future. We cant say enough good things about our boy Tommy. He just makes you smile!! Mutts4rescue@gmail.com Our adoption fee is $375 unless otherwise listed in the dogs bio and $400 for puppies. You will find the application on our home page. We are often asked, "Why would you charge "so much" for a rescue pet? Why not just place it in a good home?" The answer is because we need adopters who are willing to support all rescue pets, not just the dog they adopt. A young, healthy dog might cost us $150-400 in (discounted) vet care, and many people will want to adopt it. An older one with health issues can easily cost $500-1500 in veterinary expenses, and it may require months of foster care for rehabilitation; yet we can only ask a minimal adoption fee, and it may be a long time until anyone comes forward to adopt it. Fees from the younger, more adoptable dogs help offset the cost of caring for the others. Most of our dogs have a sad story to tell, and some have suffered through years of neglect or abuse. We hope that you too are willing to give an opportunity for a better life to ALL of our dogs by supporting them through adoption fees. Without these funds, our rescue efforts would not be possible."
