Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Angels Among Us Animal Rescue announces a new Angel: Meet Carson! Carson is an adorable black and tan chihuahua mix who was surrendered at an animal emergency center in TN. He was immediately treated for Heart worm and neutered. Carson is 12 pounds and only about 2-3 years old. He does well with other dogs, and is fine with cats so a home with other furry siblings is fine (though he would do just as well as a pampered only child!!!) He is not used to kids and may snap if startled so a home without children is needed. Carson is playful and happy, loves to play fetch and run, run, run! He has been house trained as well. We are so happy to have rescued him. He deserves a home where he will be properly cared for; not only with love but with appropriate vet care and preventative medicines like heart worm pills! Carson has been transported north to New England for adoption. The adoption donation is $300 which includes a health certificate and transport north. *Unless stated otherwise, all dogs will be spayed or neutered, on flea/tick product and heart worm prevention medicine (if older than 5 months) and micro chipped prior to adoption. *Please note that while we do our best to accurately state the breed or breed mix of a dog, we often have very limited information to draw from. Identifying the breed without pedigrees and information on heritage can be very challenging! If you are interested in adopting one of our animals, please go to www.angelsamongusanimalrescue.org and fill out an online adoption application. Thank you! Effective April 17, 2015 a Quarantine Fee of $75 will be required (in addition to the adoption fee) to adopt a dog that has been Quarantined in MA. These states mandate that all dogs entering MA shall be quarantined for 48 hours in a state approved facility. Angels Among Us Animal Rescue collects the Quarantine Fee in addition to the adoption fee when the contract is sent out.

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.

She is a dark brown/fawn colored girl who is about 9 years old and only weighs 7 pounds. Princess and her two adult (6 yr old) pups are in rescue together. Their elderly owner had to surrender the three dogs when she could no longer care for them. Princess needs a mature home where she can just lay around and bask in her senior years. She is totally vetted. Her former home did not care for her teeth and she lost most of them in her dental visit. She still eats dry food with a little canned. Chihuahuas normally live a long life so she probably has many good years left. Don’t you have a nice lap for her? Princess is currently in TN but will be transported to New England for adoption. AAUAR is courtesy listing Princess for Guardian Angels Pet Rescue (GAPR) of Memphis, TN. All GAPR dogs are fostered in Tennessee.

      Posted Breed: Jack Russell Terrier / Rat Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Angels Among Us Animal Rescue announces a new Angel: Meet Spot! Spot is a male Jack Russell/Rat Terrier mix who is approximately 10 years old and weighs in at 20 lbs. Spot has been in rescue for more than eight years. When we got him he was found running loose in a rural area of TN. He was found by a man and his son who brought him to the rescue. He went to adoption events for a while, but back when he was 2-3 years old he was so hyper that the events were a challenge for him. Also someone in his past had hit him with something resembling a broom...because brooms or anything with a handle puts him over the edge. We quit taking him to events but have had little interest over the years from an appropriate home. Now, after all these years Spot has calmed down and is really an awesome dog. He is great on a leash, but he still will run if he gets away from you. He will come back after he visits every smell he can find! He is very treat driven. Spot would be an awesome companion for a mature home where toddlers or small children are not pulling on him or hitting him with something. He still goes nuts if you come close to him with a broom. He would also be great somewhere with fenced land because he loves to run. Spot gets along with other dogs, but we have not tested him with cats. Spot is heart worm negative, current on vaccinations, neutered and micro chipped. Spot is currently in TN but will be transported to New England for adoption. AAUAR is courtesy listing Spot for Guardian Angels Pet Rescue (GAPR) of Memphis, TN. The adoption donation is $300 which includes a health certificate, and transport north .

Travis is about 2.5 yrs old (DOB~6/14), and is neutered and up to date on his shots. He looks mostly Jack Russell Terrier and Beagle. He is Heart Worm negative and weighs 22 pounds. LaRue is a petite 16 pound long bodied beagle mix. She may have some dachshund in her. LaRue is just turning 6 yrs old this spring. Both dogs get along well with other dogs.
