Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Labrador Retriever / Mixed. Evie, once a loving mama of 8 sweet pups, has matured into a gentle 4-year-old lady in love with life and in love with loving. Quite simply, she is worth her weight (50 pounds) in love. Her two favorite pastimes are generously doling out kisses and cuddling up close to her people as often as paws-ible. She never tires of either of these. Evie moves about slowly and humbly but her tail whips constantly from side to side almost doing 360 degrees before reversing again. She also has the most amazing smile or "submissive grin." For those who have never experienced this phenomenon, it's incredibly adorable. Evie smiles when her people come home. She smiles when she gets some loving and she smiles when she gets excited. Yet as sweet and smiley as she is, she is very nervous in new situations, during storms, and while traveling. Evie is not destructive or volatile, she just pants and drools until the experience ends and needs a patient family who can help her overcome or ride out these fears. Now in search of her forever home, Evie requires one with a privacy fence that is 5 feet or higher. Evie is a world class jumper but if Evie can’t see anything tempting to chase, she doesn't jump. But just imagine having this sweetheart jump up on your lap or your sofa for some snuggling and that’s another story altogether. Evie is fostered in Birmingham, AL but is willing to travel to nearby cities for her happily ever after. For more information about this special Mama Bear please contact info@forrescue.net and ask about adopting Evie and having her love you forever.

If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Boxer / Mixed (short coat). ~~Fancy Pants is just what you would expect out of a young fun girl. She is full of love and affection and energy. She loves to play with other dogs or with her person and then loves to curl up on the couch with someone to take a naps and give kisses. She settles quickly. Fancy knows sit already, comes when called and is working on the stay command. She is food motivated and a quick learner. She is also vocal and likes to tell you when she wants something.

      Breed: Border Collie-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Border Collie / Mixed (long coat). Taylor is a beautiful 2 year old Border Collie/Aussie Mix. He looks through soulful eyes as he desperately wants to be loved. He is a little slow opening up to new people but it can be so rewarding once he does. Taylor does love to play with other dogs, once he warms up to them. During these times, you are able to see his fun-loving personality shine. We aren't entirely sure of his history but we do know he was turned into the shelter because his owners couldn't afford to feed him. Now that he has gained some weight, we know there is a understanding & patient family out there that wants to go through this journey with Taylor to teach him to love and trust again. He would do best in a quiet neighborhood with a fenced in backyard. Taylor is being fostered in Huntsville, AL. If interested, please fill out an application at www.forrescue.net

      Posted Breed: Terrier / Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). Hi, I'm Jack ! I am a calm and sweet Jack Russell Chihuahua mix. I am a wonderful lap buddy and companion, so I have been told. I love attention and hanging out with my human. I get along well with other animals and have been neutered and checked out by the vet, and I'm in perfect shape! My previous human passed away and that is how I ended up with my foster family. I am excited to have known love all of my life, and I have been very well cared for. Since being neutered, I am doing great at my potty training. I haven't had any accidents in the house but I do need to go outside every few hours. My previous family said that I was 14 but everyone that meets me says that I am really only 6 or 7 years old. And, I tell you, I still feel young and energetic. I love hanging out on the sofa with my people and will follow you around the house just so I can be close to you. When my foster family has to leave the house, I hang out in my crate.. I am not a fan of the crate but after a few minutes I will settle down and get comfortable. Mostly, I get to hang out with my humans when they are home and I love sleeping in the bed with them, it makes me feel safe. Generally, I am a laid back kinda guy, low key, pretty cool fellow if I do say so myself. If you are interested in meeting me, fill out an application for me here, and my foster family will be in touch asap! http://forrescue.net/dog-application/ I am neutered, fully vaccinated, microchipped, tested negative for heart worms, and current on preventatives. I'm located in Madison, AL, but I'm available for adoption in your area!

      Posted Breed: Beagle / Mixed (short coat). ~~Bagel is every lovable Beagle quality rolled into one. This older man is always down to snuggle on the couch, but he's still got enough energy to chase a ball around the yard. He's a quirky, happy dude and he loves to frolic around the house just to be close to you. He doesn't mind being outside at all, he loves to use his nose of course, but also loves being around his people. He's an attention hound and pretends to be a lap dog. He's still learning some basic commands to show that old dogs can learn new tricks; he's very eager to please! Bagel had a little bit of rough go at life his first few years and deserve a warm place to land and track some good smells. If you are interested in this handsome man please go to: forrescue.net and fill out an application and we will be in contact with you as soon as possible. All pets come fully vetted which includes a spay or neuter, heartworm tested, rabies and a microchip, fostered in Huntsville, AL

      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). ~~Hi! My name is Mitzi. I love to run and chase birds and squirrels. My foster mom calls me a gazelle because of the way I run and jump. I’m crate trained, potty trained and up to date on my all my shots and flea and heartworm prevention meds. I love to snuggle and I am very sweet, but I do like to be boss of the pack. I do better with older children and would definitely need a fenced yard. I get very excited when it is eating time! My foster mom said I talk and dance when it’s time to eat. She’s always laughing at me. If you are interested in making me your new family member, please go to forrescue.net and fill out an application. I am fostered in Hazel Green, Alabama.

      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). ~~Bullet had the most perfect home that loved him dearly, but sadly tragedy struck and his owner passed away, leaving him and 5 others at the shelter waiting for a second chance. He is looking for a home to love him as he has been loved. He is a approximately a 4 year old Chihuahua mix that weighs about 17 pounds, who is housetrained, and loves nothing better than touching his person at all times. He is good with my kids, my cat, and my dogs of all sizes and doesn’t mind a ride in the car. His sweet personality demands a home with peace, love, and harmony – anything other is upsetting to him. Did I mention his cutest under bite that makes him look like he is grinning? If invited, he will gladly leap up in your arms from the ground. He needs a home who is willing to share their heart, lap, lips, and sometimes their dinner plate (as he has been accustomed to). Ideally, I’d love to see him go to a home of empty nesters or someone who is retired who can give him the attention he needs. Check out our slow motion video of him leaping into my daughter’s arms (you'll have to copy/past the link): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-JF249mMEZU Bullet is located in Athens, AL. He is neutered, microchipped, up to date on vaccinations and is currently on heartworm and flea prevention. Want to start a conversation about him? Please fill out an application: http://forrescue.net/dog-application/ This doesn’t obligate you to anything, it’s just our way to help find the best fit.

      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Pointer / Mixed (short coat). Lily has had a rough go of events. She was at the shelter with severe lick wounds on her front and back paws. After several rounds of medicine and physical therapy, xrays were done, and her front foot was too damaged for repair, and she ended up losing her front leg. Luckily, the back leg is healing nicely. Lily has not let that affect her personality or spirit. She loves to go on walks, playing tug-a-war, and cuddling on the couch. She is truly an inspiration to anyone that has to overcome challenges. She must be an only dog. Lily does get along great with her human family, ignores cats, is crated trained, and house broken. She is truly a great girl, with a low to medium energy level, and a beautiful smile!!
