Spike's adoption fee is $125 and comes with free training from Storm's Angels.

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.

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Meredith is ready for her forever home. She's a 1-2 year old female pitbull mix. Meredith is such a sweet and special girl. I have never met a dog that wants to be loved more than Meredith. She loves to play, go on walks, get treats, give kisses, snuggle, and run around with her other doggie friends. Meredith’s favorite way to snuggle is by curling up on the pillows next to your head and resting her head on your shoulder. She is such a goofy, energetic, fun girl who deserves the best home! She has also stayed with a temp foster while we were on vacation and they reported that she was a perfect guest. She played well with their dogs and fit right into their little family. They loved her so much that they sent her home with new toys and treats! She has won the hearts of everyone she meets and I know her special forever home is out there! She would do best in a home with no cats or small dogs because she likes to play a little rough but would love to have another larger furry friend to romp around with! Meredith is crate trained and has done a great job learning her puppy manners. She is very smart and responsive! She is spayed, UTD on vaccines, microchipped, heartworm negative, crate trained, and mostly housebroken. Adoption fee is $200. If interested email stormsangelsrescue@gmail.com

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Kane is a three year old, 58 lb pit bull mix that you just have to meet! He loves all dogs and people. He knows sit, lay down, stay, in (to his crate), off and release, just to name a few but with treats, could learn anything you wanted him too. He's very smart and easy going but loves playing with his tennis ball, wobbler and can de fluff a plush toy in under two minutes. Kane is completely housebroken (not one accident in his foster home!!), crate trained, walks very well on a leash and sleeps quietly through the night no matter where he's at. He will whine to let you know he needs outside and has no issue going a full night or workday. He rides wonderfully in the car. Kane is neutered, microchipped, heartworm negative and up to date on shots. Apply for this chill guy at www.stormsangelsrescue.org . You will be glad you did!

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Payton is nearly perfect! She walks well on a leash (pulls a little but is super smart and already learning), she already learned sit and down, and she loves people and other dogs! She is a great family dog! She is being treated for a mild skin infection (from fleas) but her skin already looks better. Payton was surrendered TWICE to the shelter because her families lost their homes. In 1 year and 4 months of life she lost her home twice so she has a little anxiety understandably. She is fully vetted and her adoption fee is $200. Payton is very curious about kitties so would be best with no cats in her forever home!

      Posted Breed: Pointer / Mixed (short coat). AVA 1-2 YEAR OLD POINTER MIX FEMALE Hello, my name is Ava but my foster family likes to call me "Ava Bean" or just "Bean". I was rescued from a local kennel after being there for a long time. My leg was hurt and I didn't feel well. Now I'm feeling better and I'm a sweet girl who has some anxiety with new situations and when I'm alone. I prefer to be the one to initiate affection so would do best with older children and adults. I'm low to medium energy, weigh approximately 50 pounds, and prefer to be the "one and only" fur child. I walk well on a leash (I only pull when I'm excited). I will fetch (once or twice) but would be fine with leash walks. I absolutely LOVE food and will do anything for a treat. My foster family says--- Ava is a sweet dog who prefers to be an only pet. She believes she is a lap dog and loves to cuddle on the couch. She enjoys a short walk but nothing too long due to her old leg injury. Ava would do best with a family who is home often. Ava fits in a 3​6" wire crate. She is in a foster home in Lorain, OH with a family of 6 (2 adults and 4 children ranging from 9-16). Ava is looking for a forever family and her adoption fee is $200. She is in a foster home in Lorain, OH.

      Breed: Boxer-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Boxer / Mixed (short coat). Puppy Storm Storm was surrendered to our rescue. Storm was purchased by her previous owners from a breeder and was never trained in basic obedience. Storm was never socialized and therefore was very afraid when she came into rescue. Due to her anxiety she has a bite history but has been rehabilitated. Storm has not attempted to bite in a long time and does well at adoption events and with all people. She's a loving dog looking for her second chance. Storm is UTD on vaccines, microchipped, spayed, heartworm negative, crate trained, house broken, and loves other dogs. She is very curious and pushy with cats and would be best in a home without them. Storm is on Prozac to help with her anxiety and it has improved her behavior. Storm likes women better than men due to her past. Storm LOVES balls!!! She loves to chew them, fetch them, and will entertain herself for hours with a single tennis ball. She is medium energy and would benefit from regular walks or a fenced in yard. She walks well on a head halti or harness and leash. She is in a foster home in Lorain, OH. Special Requirements: Must continue her Prozac until a vet says otherwise; would be best with older children or adults only
