Sassy Pit Bull Miracle foundation 2-2017“Sassy” – Spent her whole life on a heavy chain
My name is Sassy. I am a little over five years old and new to the rescue. I came to my foster home where there are seven other rescue dogs. My foster mom says I am a great dog. I love to run around the yard, snuggle and get belly rubs. I have come such a long way from the life I knew before I was rescued.
My whole life I lived outdoors, with a heavy chain that kept me from being able to go any further that my dog house. I wasn’t allowed to go indoors no matter what the weather. This is all I knew since I was 8 months old. I was used for breeding until I was 4 then I was adopted by a neighbor who grew to love me. But my life was still outside, my dog house and chain came with me. When she couldn’t care for me she posted me on Craigslist ” Free, can still have puppies”. That’s when The Miracle Foundation found me.

I’ve been with my foster mom for about 5 months. My mom says I am very smart and eager to learn new things. I have learned to walk on my leash, and I know sit, down and stay. I also am very polite and ask to go out. My mom has also taught me that a kennel is a safe warm place to sleep at night or stay when she is not home. When my family is home my preference is to be with my humans, go for walks, or just cuddle. I get belly rubs which I enjoy very much.

I have met lots of other animals here, we have three cats and our neighbors have horses which I am getting used to. As for my health, I have been to the vet, and was recently spayed and was brought up to date on all my vaccines. The vet checked me over, I was treated for fleas and a few hot spots. I am very healthy now.

I am looking to find a family I call my very own. A family that will let me love them and allow me to be the dog my foster mom says I am. She says I have a silly personality and am very curious. I love the outdoors but I am very happy to come inside and be with my family, especially when it’s cold. My mom has me on a very healthy diet which has made me lean and strong.
If you would like to meet Sassy please email The Miracle Foundation at miraclefoundationsd@gmail.com.

It’s The Pits is a 501c3 canine rescue that coordinates the fostering and adoption of dogs that haven’t yet found their permanent home. We specialize in American Staffordshire Terriers (“Am Staffs”), Staffordshire Bull Terriers (“Staffy’s”), and American Pit Bull Terriers, but will do our best to help all breeds, often by referral to other local rescues that specialize in that type of dog. We work alongside our fosters to give the dogs a temporary and loving home before they are placed into permanent homes. We rescue dogs from various shelters, evaluate them, ensure they are healthy, and then match them with the appropriate family. We take pride in matching the best dog for the individual family that contacts us. We do this by matching the activity level of the dog to the family’s needs, as well as making sure that the other pets in the home work well with the new addition to the pack. All of this is important in finding the forever home for our rescued pets.

TO SEE ALL OF OUR DOGS AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION PLEASE Visit our website at http://itsthepits.rescuegroups.org

I would love to have a doggie brother to grow up with but would be OK as the only dog too. I haven’t had all of my shots yet so I must be in a house with a private backyard. I won’t be available to go to my forever home until April 16th but you can complete an application today 🙂

Stitch

Hey there, I’m Stich! I am almost a year old and am quite the outgoing fella! I love meeting new people and get really excited so I’m working on controlling my excitement but am doing a great job learning simple commands like sit and to wait for my food before eating. Cuddling and playtime are probably my two most favorite things! I would really like a forever family who will take me on lots of walks and play with me when they get home from work 🙂

LouLou

Lou is a 10 yr old lab/mastiff looking for a new, loving home due to a family situation. He is up to date with all shots, trained, kid friendly (as long as they realize he’s 10 and not a horse 😉 ), loves to cuddle, run, and play! He’s currently in Seattle, but we work for the airlines, so they will bring him to his new home. He may be okay with cars – he lives with one now, but that’s the only one he’s ever known. He’s never tried to harm the cat, they leave each other alone.

Lou is extremely friendly and lovable! His health is good and has had no problems that we are aware of. We absolutely adore him and are devastated to have to find a new home for him – Please only inquire if you serious and will take absolute wonderful care of him!

If interested, please contact Frederick Brodie at (808) 554-4533.

Odds

Odds

“Odds” is a handsome rescued 1-1/2 year old Border Collie mix.  He got his name because he was rescued off the streets of Tijuana and the “odds” that he would be saved were slim.  Because of his sweet temperament, a rescue group in Tijuana saved his life.  He is very sweet, inquisitive and ready for fun.  His favorite time is spent cuddling. He is calm, playful and loving.  He gets along well with other dogs, cats and children.  He is house trained and knows how to use a doggie door. He wants to learn and rides in the car great. He would be great with a family or an individual who is active. He has been neutered, wormed and is up-to-date with his Distemper/Parvo shots. Medical records will be provided.   “Odds” weighs about 52 lbs. A home visit will be conducted to help ensure the right home for him and his new adopter. An application for adoption will be requested. “Odds” rehoming fee is $100.

If interested, please call or text Pam Lawless (Foster Mom) at: (619) 964-1181 or e-mail at Pam.Lawless@GCCCD.edu.

 

 

“Bernie”

bernie copyBernie is 3 years old would love to be your one and only, but is good with most other dogs.  He is very curious by nature, but responds well to commands and is smart and loving.  He is housebroken.  He has been neutered, wormed and is up-to-date with his Distemper/Parvo shots. Medical records will be provided. He is the ultimate burglar alarm system. He will protect you and your home by letting you know if someone’s there who shouldn’t be.  He loves to go for walks.  He is a bit anxious when first meeting people, especially men, and needs time to warm up to them.   Once you give him the time to warm up to the situation (mostly ignoring him), he will connect.  He responds well to positive reinforcement and patience when training him.

He enjoys his treats and waits patiently for you to get home. He runs to greet you with a wagging tail and welcoming jump.  He does enjoy the company of dogs and gets along with children.

A home visit will be conducted to help ensure the right home for him and his new adopter. An application for adoption will be requested. “Bernie’s” rehoming fee is $100.

We offer education on how to housebreak a dog as well as other information on different situations. Every dog is spayed or neutered, current on shots, dewormed, frontline for fleas and ticks. Thank you for considering a rescue dog!!!

Our Adoption Process… An application is required prior to visiting a dog. This enables us to pick the dog we feel is best for your situation. http://www.rescueachihuahua.com/PDF/application.pdf

This Week’s Featured Dogs:

Jinxie

Little Jinxie is an 8 lb Maltese who came to us salvaged from a puppy mill. During her 8 years of life, she has only known a wire cage, litter after litter of puppies with the poorest care and conditions imaginable. Those days are over as she is safe now and looking to begin her new life. Every day brings something she knows nothing about. Her foster family is teaching her to walk on a leash, climb up and down stairs, eat quality food out of a bowl or plate rather than something thrown on the ground, explore the neighborhood park with grass to roll in, sleep in a soft bed, and be held with lots of hugs and the assurance that she is safe and loved. She gets along great with the other pups in the house and would do best in a home with another dog to teach her how to be a dog. She is a little timid but not overly shy and loves to cuddle next to her foster daddy. Jinxie was just spayed and received a full dental. She has all her shots and is microchipped. Jinxie is looking for that tender person willing to be patient and gentle as she learns about life. If this is you, this girl is ready to reward you with lots of snuggles. Please fill out an application found at www.RescueAChi.com and we will give you a call to schedule a meeting with this precious girl.

 

 

 

 

Briggly

My name is Briggly. I am a very sweet Shepherd who is between 4 and 5 years old. I am in excellent health and weigh about 50 lbs. I will make a very loyal excellent guard dog for my new forever family. If anyone I don’t know tries to bother my family, I will keep them at bay with my very loud bark. I am very child friendly and have been around small children all my life. I will bond quickly with my new family so I can love and protect them with all I have in me. I am a very smart young lady and learn new commands with ease. In fact, I already know several commands like sit, lay down and stay. I love to go on long walks with my family so I can get to know my neighborhood and surroundings. My previous family is in the Navy and are being redeployed. Unfortunately they will not be able to take me with them. I will miss them very much, but things happen. I know I must move on and look for a new forever family that I can love and take care of. Oh, by the way, did you know I am totally blind. Yep have been since I was a puppy and I have never let that little thing slow me down. I have developed my senses to make up for the difference. I get around in my environment just fine. You might say, being blind has helped me perform my duties at a much higher level. It has made me a more calm and focused lady. Anyone out there willing to take a chance on me will be more then pleased with all I can do for my new forever family. Thanks and God Bless. If you have room in your heart and your home for this sweet girl, please complete an application found at www.RescueAChi.com and we will give you a call.

Dana

TEMPORARY FOSTER or NEW HOME NEEDED for our “Dana”

We originally were looking for just a temporary home but we have had no luck :-( We are willing to re-home her if that is what we need to do.. We recently had to move and unfortunately the space is so small and there’s no yard, we couldn’t keep our precious husky “Dana”…. But this is only temporary until our lease is up in October, which at that time we will be buying a house with a yard to accommodate her. She is currently being watched by a family friend but they will no longer be able to watch her, so we are looking for someone who can foster her during this time.  She is spayed and chipped.

Please contact Victor at 619-569-6420 or EMAIL ME HERE if you are able to help!

 

 

 

 

 

Vivian & Amos_HEART“Vivian” & “Amos”

My husband and I rescued two dogs, three years ago- Vivian and Amos. They had had a rough go of it and we put a lot of love and time into training and rehabilitating them. Most recently, we had a baby that left me impaired (going to therapy) due to pelvic damage. The dogs are acting up with the new baby (4 months) and my husband is leaving for deployment and work ups in March. I’m physically not able to take care of them all on my own. I will actually be moving to Michigan so that I can be near family should we have any issues. We are hoping that someone would like to take the dogs in as part of their family, or even to foster them while my husband is deployed and I am away getting help. We are happy and able to cover costs to a good home.

vivian & Amos_2Here is some more info about them: Vivian and Amos are a bonded pair of Black Mouth Curs. Thought to be mother and pup, aged around 8 and 6, 60 and 50 pounds. They love to cuddle- with each other and people that they are familiar with. They enjoy daily walks and time to play outside, though they prefer the company of their owners to being alone out of doors. Calm baths and brushes are a favorite, as are performing “tricks” to please. Vivian and Amos are loyal and protective rescues, therefore, weary of strangers. A formal introduction is recommended when bringing someone new into the home. Though happy to be loved on by known children, small children are not recommended as Vivian can get excited when playing and “pounce” or bat. They are up to date on all shots and vaccinations, micro chipped with paperwork. They prefer to sleep together in their crate or on the floor at the foot of the bed. Crate, toys, dishes, brushes, electric fence, and all else are theirs to keep. We love the dogs and are looking for owners excited to take them in as part of their family.

Super Sweet Foster Kitty “Dusty Rose”
I am fostering a beautiful tuxedo cat in need of a home. I originally found Dusty Rose in my backyard, and ended up fostering her after her microchip contacts did not return calls. She is estimated to be around 4-5 years old and in good health. She needs to be the only animal as she seems insecure around other animals.Contact me if interested in pictures of her or to check her out.

Roc3Roc”

“‘Roc’ is a beautiful 5-year old red male American Staffordshire Terrier mix who has a huge loving soul and enjoys nothing more than spending time with you, getting lots of pets. All he wants is to be loved and be around people, especially children.   He walks well on leash and loves to go for walks and experience things that he’s never had a chance to do in his previous life. Roc is neutered and up to date with his Distemper/Parvo and Rabies shots. He weighs about 80 lbs. Medical records will be provided. A home visit will be conducted to help ensure the best fit for ‘Roc’ and his new family. Roc’s re-homing fee is $75.

5-14-15 Gaia_ElizABETH aLLEN“Gaia”

Gaia is a beautiful 1.5yr old female, spayed pittie who has had a terrible start in life and was rescued from San Bernadino City Shelter about 3 months ago right after giving birth to pups that were never found. She came to me a complete mess, very sick and in deep grief at losing her babies. She has been nursed back to health and is now a vibrant, energetic pup.  She is great around cats and to date, dogs are the challenge, so a home with no other dogs, except maybe small, playful ones is the best place for her.

I have two other big dogs that would LOVE to play with her, but she has experienced too much trauma for that to happen – today. We have an animal behaviorist on the team and she is making progress, so we are hopeful.  She would thrive in a home with a pack leader who is willing to be consistent, keep her safe, correct her and give her boundaries. She is pure love.

It’s The Pits is a 501c3 canine rescue that coordinates the fostering and adoption of dogs that haven’t yet found their permanent home. We specialize in American Staffordshire Terriers (“Am Staffs”), Staffordshire Bull Terriers (“Staffy’s”), and American Pit Bull Terriers, but will do our best to help all breeds, often by referral to other local rescues that specialize in that type of dog. We work alongside our fosters to give the dogs a temporary and loving home before they are placed into permanent homes. We rescue dogs from various shelters, evaluate them, ensure they are healthy, and then match them with the appropriate family. We take pride in matching the best dog for the individual family that contacts us. We do this by matching the activity level of the dog to the family’s needs, as well as making sure that the other pets in the home work well with the new addition to the pack. All of this is important in finding the forever home for our rescued pets. Visit our website at http://itsthepits.rescuegroups.org

YOUR DONATION CAN HELP US BUILD OUR NEW “CATTERY” FOR CAT ADOPTIONS IN ALPINE!

Shelter Pet Partners is one of the largest cat rescue groups in San Diego. We are raising funds for a new cattery which will be placed inside Natural Instincts Pet store. This cattery will allow multiple cats to be housed and viewed by the public, ultimately allowing more cats to be placed in their forever homes. So instead of donating to a cause that helps save just one animal consider helping us raise funds for the new cattery and it’s furnishings to help save many animals lives yearly. Thank you for your support and please feel free to share!

Here is the link to our GoFundMe Page to donate! https://www.gofundme.com/tnrw4nbd
