Snorkle

Snorkle is a fun, energetic guy who LOVES to play with toys. He actually seems to prefer toys to treats. He was originally on the adoption floor at the shelter, but he became frustrated and developed barrier aggression. This is common in a shelter environment where dogs can see other dogs but aren't able to get to them and socialize. Snorkle was pulled from the adoption floor and temp tested again. Unfortunately, he was stiff and growled at another male dog, so he was placed on rescue only. Sadly, no rescue stepped up for this boy, and he was given a "must have rescue by" date. move to Act pledged from our Last Chance Fund in the hope financial assistance would enable a rescue to save him. Luckily, Last Call K9s was able to help and saved Snorkle. He is doing very well in rescue and is already searching for his forever home!

Spud

Spud was around three years old when he came to the shelter as a stray. He had some bite wounds but wasn't in too bad of shape. Unfortunately, when tested with other dogs, he was intense, pushy, and difficult to read. The decision was made to place him on rescue only. Even though Spud is a handsome, wiggly fellow who loves people, he sat on the rescue list for over three weeks with no interest until he was given a "must have rescue by" date. move to Act pledged from our Last Chance Fund to help this guy find a rescue. Fortunately, Hoosier Hooves and Hounds had a spot open and were able to save Spud! They say he is "the bomb!". He is very lovable and even knows how to shake.

T-Bone

T-Bone was only eight months old when he was taken from a house where he used to live with his previous owners. From the looks of it, he had been tethered most of his short life. He was never socialized with other dogs and did not do well when meeting them. He also failed the food bowl portion of the temp test. He is still very much a spunky, playful, wonderful puppy who just needs someone to treat him well, socialize him properly, and take the time to train him. He was placed on rescue only, but no one showed any interest. T-Bone was given a "must have rescue by" date, and move to Act pledged from our Last Chance fund in hopes of helping this puppy get a second chance. Fortunately, Canine Castaways stepped up and saved T-Bone! He is doing great in rescue and has started greeting other dogs nicely.

Pinky

Pinky is only two years old and was surrendered to the shelter by her owner. She was extremely fearful at the shelter. She hid and peeked from the corner of her kennel, which made it difficult to get her out. Once out, Pinky was jumpy and easily frightened, but she did do well when meeting other dogs. She was placed on rescue only due to her fear. She waited over three weeks with no interest before being given a "must have rescue by" date. Poor Pinky is just a plain, black pittie mix who was being overlooked, so move to Act pledged from our Last Chance Fund in the hope a pledge might get her noticed. Last Call K9s stepped up and rescued this girl! On the drive to her foster home, Pinky was so excited, she went from front to back seat and covered her transporter/foster in kisses! She is currently doing well in rescue and will soon be looking for her forever home.

Sampson

Sampson is an eight year old, cuddly, loving kitty who was on the adoption floor until the shelter vet suspected he may have failing kidneys. He was placed on the rescue list in hopes a rescue would have tests run. There was no interest from rescue, and Sampson was given a "must have rescue by" date. move to Act pledged from our Last Chance Fund to help a rescue pay for tests, but the date came and went with no rescue. A volunteer at the shelter took Sampson home to foster in order to give him a little more time. Fortunately, Hoosier Hooves and Hounds came through and rescued him! They ran tests and learned he is a healthy boy! Sampson has since been adopted, and his after picture shows him resting happily in his forever home.

Rubik

Rubik came to the shelter as a stray when he was around a year old. He is a friendly boy who does well with other dogs, but, unfortunately, he failed the food bowl test. This placed him on the rescue-only list. After waiting a few weeks in the shelter, staff noticed a small mass above his eye that had gotten bigger. Rubik was also developing some barrier aggression from being stressed in the kennel. He was given a "must have rescue by" date. move to Act pledged from our Last Chance Fund to help Rubik find a rescue. Luckily, Canine Castaways stepped up and rescued him.

Geno

Geno was only a year old when he found himself at the shelter. He is just a big puppy who loves to play and has a lot of energy. He is also a smart boy who knows sit, shake, and down. He was very friendly and loving to the female staff and volunteers but did not seem to like men he did not know. (Once he was familiar with someone, he was fine.) This behavior in combination with a failed food bowl test placed him on the rescue-only list. Geno waited for nearly a month with no interest. He was given a "must have rescue by" date. move to Act pledged from our Last Chance Fund to help a rescue pay for his care and training. Poor Geno did not get a rescue on the day he was supposed to. Fortunately, the staff gave him an extra day, and Last Call K9s saved him!

Eli

Eli is a super happy boy who wiggles and wiggles and dances around! He didn't seem phased by the shelter environment. He was tested for the adoption floor and did not do well when meeting another dog, so he was placed on the rescue only list. He waited for several weeks with no interest until he was given a "must have rescue by" date. move to Act pledged from our Last Chance Fund. Black dogs, like Eli, often take longer to be adopted, so rescues know they will more than likely be caring for them longer. We hoped our pledge would help with the cost. Eli was not rescued by the date he was given. Shelter staff made one more plea. Thankfully, Happy Tails stepped up and rescued this boy! As you can see from his after picture, he is still a happy, wiggly boy! Thank you to the supporters of our Last Chance Fund for helping us to be a part of saving Eli.

Cora

Shelter staff guessed Cora was around two years old when she arrived as a stray. She was nervous and could be stiff and fearful at the shelter. Once out of the kennel area, she relaxed and warmed up to the people who spent time with her. Eventually, she became braver. She enjoyed attention from staff and volunteers, and they learned she is a rambunctious girl who loves to play! Cora was temp-tested for the adoption floor. Sadly, she did not do well when introduced to another dog, which meant she could not be adopted from the shelter. She was put on the rescue-only list. She waited for three weeks with no interest until she was given a "must have rescue by" date. move to Act pledged from our Last Chance Fund in hopes our pledge would encourage a rescue to step up. Caring for the animals long-term is costly, so financial support can make a big difference. Luckily, Canine Castaways stepped up and saved Cora! She is doing well in rescue and hoping to find her forever home soon.

Jaba

Jaba arrived as a stray. He was emaciated and had a very sad look about him. One of the staff fell in love with him and kept him in the front office when she could. He got quite a bit of attention and gained 16 pounds in a few weeks! Staff learned he is a smart dog who learns quickly. They taught him sit, shake, high five, and to wait for his food. He was temp tested for the adoption floor and did poorly in all three categories. He growled during handling and sometimes became stiff, as if he felt threatened. He was bossy and guarding of his food, but he did listen to a staff member when she taught him to wait. He also did not do very well when introduced to another dog. Poor Jaba had three strikes against him, but staff believed he was a great dog who deserved a chance. He was put on the rescue only list. After waiting about two weeks, staff noticed Jaba's behavior was deteriorating in the kennel. He was developing barrier aggression and becoming very guarding of his food bowl. He was given a "must have rescue by" date. move to Act pledged from our Last Chance Fund in the hope of encouraging a rescue to save him. The date Jaba had to have rescue by passed with no rescue. Fortunately, the next day, a rescue miracle happened, and Last Call K9s found a foster! Jaba was rescued! He has now been renamed to Java, and his foster mom says he is an angel who listens very well.

Hopscotch

Hopscotch was only around a year old when he was found as a stray. He was fearful and timid in his kennel, but eventually became braver and more social after staff and volunteers visited with him. He was tested for the adoption floor and did not do well when meeting other dogs. Unfortunately, this meant he would have to be placed on the rescue-only list. Hopscotch is a big puppy with a fun, silly way about him. He loves to play and will flop over, sometimes right in your lap, for belly rubs.

Simone

Simone and her sister, Faline, came into the shelter when their owner went to jail. They were both about a year old and had been living in the owner's back yard. Both were timid and scared. Faline started to come out of her shell and found a rescue. Simone was much more shutdown. She stood very still and trembled when she was petted. After several weeks on the rescue list with no interest, she was given a "must have rescue by" date. move to Act pledged from our Last Chance Fund to encourage a rescue to save her by helping with the cost of her care.

Tica

Tica was surrendered by a man who said his ex-girlfriend had dumped her in his yard and left. She has a microchip, but the numbers listed were no longer working. Tica had been at the shelter in 2015 and was said to be a service dog for a teenager. However, she wasn't comfortable with men at the shelter and was timid in her cage. She was placed on rescue-only in hopes a rescue could help her build confidence and find her the right home. Poor Tica waited a little over three weeks before receiving a "must have rescue by" date. During that time, she became frustrated in her kennel and began to hard-bark at the kennel door. It was obvious the stress of the shelter was getting to her. move to Act pledged from our Last Chance Fund to help a rescue pay for her care.

Harmony

Harmony was only a year old when she came to the shelter. She is a very affectionate dog with such a soft personality. Unfortunately, she was very guarding of her food and did not pass the food bowl portion of the temp test. She was placed on rescue-only and waited almost a month with no interest, so she was given a "must have rescue by" date.

Roo

Poor Roo was seven years old when she was found living in poor conditions in a house with many other dogs. It was easy to see the dogs had not been well cared for. All were flea-infested, had itchy, yeasty skin, sparse fur, and overgrown nails. They were also very fearful. Roo was so fearful, she would barely untuck her tail.

Maddie

Maddie came to the shelter as a stray. Shelter staff guessed her to be around 10 years old. She had an open mass on her back, and her ears looked like they had been infected for some time. Despite the fact she must have been in pain, she was gentle, laid-back, and loved affection. She received medication for her ear infection, but the shelter did not have the resources to remove the mass on her back. Maddie was placed on "rescue only" in the hope a rescue could help. After a few weeks, no one had stepped up, and she was given a "must have rescue by" date. move to Act pledged from our Last Chance Fund to help with the cost of the mass removal. Fortunately, A Heart for Animals saved Maddie! They found she actually had several masses. All have been removed, and Maddie has recovered nicely.

Page

Page arrived as a stray and because of her cage behavior, was not going to be a candidate for adoption or rescue. She barked and growled and seemed aggressive. Fortunately, a volunteer was able to get her out to visit, and she was okay with him that day. A staff member got her out, and she did great with her as well. It seemed she really bonded quickly to some people and was not trusting of others. Overall, the shelter made her nervous and skittish. She was placed on the rescue list in hopes a rescue would find a foster. Perhaps, in a home environment without so much stress, her true personality would shine. After a few weeks with no interest, Page was given a "must have rescue by" date. move to Act pledged from our Last Chance Fund to help increase her chances of being rescued. Luckily, Helping Paws was able to find a foster and rescue Page! As you can see from her after pictures, she is a happy girl and doing well in her foster home.

Page arrived as a stray and because of her cage behavior, was not going to be a candidate for adoption or rescue. She barked and growled and seemed aggressive. Fortunately, a volunteer was able to get her out to visit, and she was okay with him that day. A staff member got her out, and she did great with her as well. It seemed she really bonded quickly to some people and was not trusting of others. Overall, the shelter made her nervous and skittish. She was placed on the rescue list in hopes a rescue would find a foster. Perhaps, in a home environment without so much stress, her true personality would shine. After a few weeks with no interest, Page was given a "must have rescue by" date. move to Act pledged from our Last Chance Fund to help increase her chances of being rescued. Luckily, Helping Paws was able to find a foster and rescue Page! As you can see from her after pictures, she is a happy girl and doing well in her foster home. Thank you for supporting our Last Chance Fund and helping to save Page!

Cedric

Cedric is an exuberant boy who is full of life. Unfortunately, he is also energetic and can be rambunctious and hard to handle. He waited on the rescue only list with no interest until he was given an "must have rescue by" date. move to Act pledged from our Last Chance Fund to help with Cedric's care and training expenses. Fortunately, Last Call K9s stepped up and saved him! He will be neutered soon, which should help with some of his issues.

Clark

Clark had been roaming around the park when he was picked up and brought to the shelter. He was very scared, so he was placed on the rescue only list. After a few days, he began to relax a bit and greeted people at his kennel door. Once he became familiar with someone, a regular staff or volunteer, Clark became outgoing and would even roll over for belly rubs! Unfortunately, he continued to be timid with new people and could not move to the adoption floor. Clark waited for close to three weeks on the rescue list before he was given a "must have rescue by" date. move to Act pledged from our Last Chance Fund in order to help this shy boy find a rescue. We are extremely happy to report Last Call K9s stepped up and saved him! Now, he will get the chance to be someone's loving companion. Thank you for your support of the Last Chance Fund! Without you, we could not be a part of saving dogs like Clark.

Jasmine

Jasmine was tested for the adoption floor but reacted poorly when introduced to another dog. She could also be mouthy in play with people, but, at just a year old, she still had a lot of happy, puppy energy. Due to these issues, she was placed on rescue only. It can be difficult to find rescue for dogs with dog issues because most fosters have their own dogs. Jasmine was no exception. She waited a few weeks on the rescue list and was finally given a "must have rescue by" date. Move to Act pledged from our Last Chance Fund in hopes of helping a rescue pay for her care. Loving Heart Animal Shelter had a spot, so they stepped up and saved her! Jasmine has already been adopted! She has a nice fenced yard to run in and all the toys she could possibly want. She looks to be loved very much! Thank you for supporting the Last Chance Fund and helping us save dogs like Jasmine.

Ethel

Ethel was able to pass the temp test at the shelter and make it to the adoption floor. Sadly, she became scared and timid and cowered in her kennel. Eventually, she was pulled from the adoption floor and made rescue only. While on the adoption floor, Ethel was overlooked time and again, and the rescue list was no different. No one showed any interest in her. She was eventually given a "must have rescue by" date. Move to Act pledged from our Last Chance Fund in hopes Ethel would be noticed! Fortunately, Loving Heart Animal Shelter had a spot and stepped up to save her. She is doing fantastic at Loving Heart and is a spunky ball of fun who is well-loved! Thank you for supporting the Last Chance Fund and helping us save dogs like Ethel.

Nathan

Nathan is a friendly boy who did well with other dogs and loved almost all people.  There was one staff member he growled and snarled at.  She tried talking nicely to him and feeding him treats, but he would not warm up to her.  It's possible she reminded him of someone who wasn't kind to him in the past.  He was placed on rescue only due to this behavior.  Nathan waiting almost three weeks with no interest from rescue and was given a "must have rescue by" date.  Move to Act pledged from our Last Chance Fund in hopes our pledge would enable a rescue to pull.  Fortunately, Ruts Rescue stepped up and saved him!  He is currently behaving well in his foster home.  Thank you for supporting our Last Chance Fund!

Rexah

Rexah was taken from an abusive situation by the person who surrendered her to the shelter.  The person had intended to rehabilitate and rehome her, but her fear and anxiety were severe.  She also developed a mass on her eye, which the vet suspected to be iris melanoma.  The cost of treatment combined with the behavior issues prompted the person to surrender her.  As you can see from her before picture, Rexah was terrified.  When a person came to her kennel door, she seemed to want to visit but was just too scared.  She was placed on the rescue only list in hopes of finding an experienced foster who could work on her fear issues and also get treatment for her eye.  Poor Rexah sat waiting for two to three weeks before she was given a "must have rescue by" date.  In that time, the staff visited her and were able to get her out of her kennel.  She eventually started to come to the kennel door to greet everyone.  Rexah was making progress, but she needed a rescue fast!  Move to Act made a pledge from our Last Chance Fund to help.  We couldn't stand to see Rexah's progress be for nothing.  Fortunately, Cherished Life Rescue agreed and rescued her!  She is now on medication to help ease the anxiety and has begun training.  The issue with her eye may just be pigmentation, but they are monitoring closely to be certain.  Her foster has discovered she loves car rides, and Rexah is already bonding with her!  Thank you for helping us give Rexah another chance by supporting our Last Chance Fund!

Hayley

Hayley was 10 or 11 years old when she was surrendered to the shelter by her owner.  She had dry, flaky skin, eye issues, and almost no teeth.  She was placed on the rescue only list due to these issues.  Hayley is a laid-back, fun, goofy girl who loves getting back scratches and playing with tennis balls.  Everyone thought she would be rescued quickly.  Unfortunately, she didn't do well when meeting another dog at the shelter, which makes it difficult to find a rescue.  Hayley waited on the rescue list for two to three weeks and was given a "must have rescue by" date.  Move to Act pledged from our Last Chance Fund.  We hoped easing the financial burden of her care would encourage more rescues to consider taking her in.  Ruts Rescue found a foster and stepped up and saved Hayley!  She is now in a loving foster home and doing well with the dogs there.  Thank you for supporting our Last Chance Fund and helping us save dogs like Hayley!

Buster

>Buster is only a little over a year old. He was timid in the shelter but warmed up to people quickly. One of the volunteers sat on the floor and called him. He hurried over, put his head in her lap, and flopped over for belly rubs! Unfortunately, he did not do well with other dogs when tested for the adoption floor. Buster waited on the rescue list with no interest until he was given a date by which he must have rescue. Move to Act pledged from our Last Chance Fund in hopes the pledge would enable a rescue to afford his care and pull him. Big Z Doberman Rescue stepped up and saved this sweet boy.

Harvey

Harvey came to the shelter in need of TLC.  He looked to have lived a rough life but has a good personality and is very friendly towards people and other dogs. He was going to the adoption floor, but the shelter vet noticed he had been urinating blood. The normal course of medication at the shelter did not help.  Harvey was put on rescue-only because he needed tests and medical care the shelter could not provide.  After three weeks with no rescue, he was given an urgent date in which he must have rescue by.  Move to Act pledged from our Last Chance Fund in the hope our pledge would help with the medical costs and enable a rescue to pull him.  Thankfully, PAWS Hancock stepped up and rescued Harvey!   His name is now Ozzie, and he is loving life in his foster home.  He has had several vet visits and tests and is currently on a new medication to help with the blood in his urine.  Thank you for supporting our Last Chance Fund!

Tattoo

Tattoo was very scared and timid in the shelter.  He stayed at the back of his cage and sometimes growled out of fear.  The staff and volunteers worked with him, and his personality started to show.  When he recognized a volunteer or staff member, he lowered his head and wagged his whole back-end!  Sadly, he did not do well with other dogs during his temp test.  He was placed on the rescue only list and down to his last day when move to ACT pledged from our Last Chance Fund.  Shortly after we pledged, Big Z Doberman Rescue saved the day and rescued him!  They have found he takes a little while to warm up, but he minds his manners well when told no.  He can be dog-selective but has found a friend in Hank the puppy!  Thank you for supporting our Last Chance Fund and allowing us to help save Tattoo!

Mona

Mona's Story:

Mona and her puppies were confiscated for cruelty.  They waited at the shelter for a month for the court to determine they did not have to go back to their owner.  By that time, the puppies were old enough to be away from mom, so they went to rescue.  Mona was temp-tested for the adoption floor but did not do well when meeting another dog.  However, she was as sweet as can be with people, loved attention and going for walks, and loved to play ball.  This girl's life didn't seem to be very happy so far, but shelter staff hoped to change that by getting her to a rescue that could help her find a loving home.  After waiting several weeks on the rescue list, Mona was given an urgent date.  Move to Act pledged from our Last Chance Fund to help a rescue pay for Mona's care and any vetting she might need.  Fortunately, Tails and Trails came through and rescued this loving girl!  They will be getting her spayed and finding her a forever home where she will get the love she always deserved!  Thank you for your support of our Last Chance Fund!

Kingston

Kingston had a hard life before he came to the shelter. He was tied to a cinder block with barely any chain to move around and with no food or water. Kingston was 10 years old and had probably lived most of his life this way. In spite of that, he still had spirit and enjoyed affection once he got to know someone. He was unsure of strangers and needed someone with patience to help him trust. For this reason, he was placed on the rescue-only list. Kingston was given quite a bit of time on the list, but no rescue had shown interest in him. When he was given an urgent date, move to ACT made a pledge from our Last Chance Fund in hopes it would help offset the financial burden so a rescue could save him. On the last day, Tails and Trails stepped up and rescued Kingston! We're sure he has a better life now than he has ever known. Thank you to those who have supported our Last Chance Fund for making this possible!

Joplin

Joplin is a sweet, easy-going boy who loves attention! He was put on rescue-only due to his age (10 years) and the fact he didn't do well with other dogs on his first temp test. He eventually did settle a little in the shelter and did fine with the other dog the second time he was tested. The shelter staff and volunteers had high hopes he would go to the adoption floor, but the vet discovered he had hip dysplasia and would need Rimadyl for the rest of his life. Poor Joplin sat on the rescue list and was finally given an urgent date. move to ACT made a pledge from our Last Chance Fund in hopes it would enable a rescue to take on his care. Ruts Rescue came through in the nick of time and saved this sweet senior! As you can see from his after picture, he is resting comfortably and is well-loved in his foster-to-adopt home.

Etta

Etta was the first pledge from our Last Chance Fund. She was guessed to be about a year old when she came to the shelter as a stray. Being in the shelter terrified her.

It was obvious she was a good dog, but the shelter environment was too scary for her. She was put on the rescue-only list, but kept being overlooked. After several weeks, the shelter gave an urgent date by which she must find rescue. move to ACT made a pledge from our Last Chance Fund in hopes of bringing attention to this sweet little black dog.

Coleman

Coleman is a good example of why training a puppy is so important. He came into the shelter at a year old and did not know his own size or strength. He loved to jump and play, but unfortunately at his size, he could easily knock someone over and hurt them. He was placed on the rescue list because he could not pass the handling portion of the shelter's temp test. Weeks went by, and Coleman still had no rescue. The shelter became full, and Coleman was given an urgent date. move to ACT made a pledge to help a rescue provide care and training, and Homes for Huskies rescued him! His foster has a doggy daycare where he loves playing with the other dogs. Coleman has received training, is behaving better, and already has a few people interested in adopting him! Thank you for supporting the Last Chance Fund and helping dogs like Coleman find their forever homes!
