Posted Breed: Boxer / Mixed (short coat). UPDATE: GREAT NEWS!! BLUE HAS A SPONSOR WHO WILL PAY 1/2 OF HER $125.00 ADOPTION DONATION FEE. BLUE IS A SWEET DOG WHO HAS GONE THROUGH A LOT. SHE WOULD LOVE TO HAVE A "FOREVER HOME". PLEASE THINK ABOUT ADOPTING HER. This is Blue. She has the most beautiful eyes and is a real sweetheart! She seems to understand some basic commands and is eager to please. She is very friendly with adults and children. She is ready for a home where she can give lots of love. UPDATE; Blue is still waiting for her forever family. She is very sweet and loving to her fosters. She is an "alpha dog"; so she should be an only dog or paired with other dogs who do not want to dominate. We would not recomend her for a family with children. Will someone please give her a chance to have a family? UPDATE: Blue is very happy in her new foster home. She is playing like a puppy again! She loves playing with her rawhide bone and throws it up in the air. In order to adopt this animal or another rescue buddy, please visit our website, www.apsofpc.org and complete the non-binding, online adoption application. After you have filled out the application, you may email info@apsofpc.org for more information or call 336 514-8689.

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.

      Rudy

      verified

      rescue
      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Roxboro, NC
      Posted Breed: Deerhound / Hound / Mixed (short coat). From Rudy's foster Mom: UPDATE ON RUDY'S SIGHT PROBLEMS: Rudy gets around very well, both inside and out. If I should change direction on him, for example while walking through the house when he is going the same direction heading for a treat or to go out, it takes him a second to catch on, and we may lightly bump, but he really is not handicapped very much at all. I have been cleaning the porch over several days, and leaving furniture, etc., in different places than normal. Doesn't faze him at all. We still feel Rudy would need a fenced yard or should be on a leash at all times when he is outside Rudy, I have been told, is a Deerhound. He apparently had been running loose for some time before making his way to my house. He is about three years old, and is a "Special Needs" dog, because he has a congenital eye disease called Mydriasis that has robbed him of some of his sight. The vet doesn't think he will lose any more. In spite of his problems, he gets around fairly well and off-leash he chooses to run, not walk. The other day, he was chasing flying bugs in the back yard! He also likes cats. His adoption donation is $150.00. If you are interested in this pet, please go to apsofpc.org and fill out the non-binding Adoption Application. After we process it, we will contact you if your application is accepted.

      Posted Breed: Shih Tzu. THIS SHIH TZU IS NOT AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION. If you are looking at this site, you probably are an animal lover. Every day we get requests to help people place dogs and cats who were found as strays, or the owners don't want them any more, or they are going to be euthanized at the shelter. We want to help all of these animals, but without more foster homes we are not able to help. If you love animals, but are not ready to take on the full responsibility of ownership, or if you can fit one more animal into your household, maybe you could foster for Animal Protection Society of Person County. We pay all vet expenses, food bills, and can provide houses and/or crates for your foster. Please consider fostering. Fostering saves lives. In order to adopt this animal or another rescue buddy,please visit our website and complete the online adoption application. Or you may email info@apsofpc.org or call 336·514·8689 for more information.
