Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Jack Russell Terrier (Parson Russell Terrier) / Mixed (short coat). Porkchop was rescued from a hoarding case in December of 2013 and is STILL waiting for his forever home. He was rescued from an owner that had over 30 small dogs - many of them being severely ill, malnourished and under socialized -in a small studio apartment. Porkchop has is about 5-6 years old and had not had nearly any human interaction before he was rescued by us. When he first arrived in our care, he trembled in the presence of humans and hid in a corner. We were unable to pick him up or handle him without experienced help. But, with the constant work and support from several foster homes, Porkchop has been making tremendous progress! He gets along GREAT with other dogs, and would probably do well in a home with other dogs and/or cats to make him feel more secure. His foster mom can now successfully leash him and take him or a walk, pick him up and sit with him on the couch, and pet him. He is trained to go potty on puppy training potty pads indoors, and will also go outside (we let him out in a fenced in backyard). He is still very shy and will most likely be that way for the rest of his life, but with a loving owner that he can trust, he will slowly begin to come out of his shell. Watching him grow and experience new things is extremely rewarding. Please consider adding this little man to your home; he is one of our favorites! For updates on his progress, visit "The Adventures of Porkchop" on Facebook! If you are interested in adopting Porkchop, please go to our website at www.castawaypetrescue.org and fill out an adoption application. An adoption counselor will contact you. Please bring any dogs, children, and decision makers to your appointment. Be prepared to adopt and take your new family member home that day if we have a match. Please note that adoption counselors will only know of your interest if you submit an application. They do not see emails sent to the administration email account. The adoption counselor can answer your questions when they call after receiving your application. Please remember we are an all volunteer organization. Minimum Adoption Donation is $250.00 (includes deworming, microchip with free registration, age appropriate vaccinations, spay if performed by our vet, 30 days of health insurance). Any donation above the minimum is appreciated Our organization uses 24PetWatch microchips, which include free registration into the 24PetWatch pet recovery service.

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 has been in her foster home with other dogs and kids and has done good with both, She does get excited around the kids but calms down and loves to be pet! She has seen the cats in the home and seems to be a little to interested in them so a home without cats would probably be best. Smore's would love a backyard to run around in and chase the squirrels around, she would do best with a fenced in yard or would need to be on a leash. She is crate trained and does good in her kennel while her foster parents are at work. Smore's would do best in a home that would like to continue her training since she is a young girl eager to please! She is looking for the perfect family could that be you..????

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Chocolate Labrador Retriever (short coat). Linus is a 6 years young pit mix. He is a gentle giant that is looking for a loving forever home. His size may be big...but his heart is bigger!!! He just wants to be close to you and share your life with you. He has lived with children and is very good with them, but would prefer older children that have less energy like him. He has lived with another dog in the past, but now in his life he would prefer ALL of your attention and really doesn't want to share his time that he has with you with another dog. He is looking for a big fenced in yard that he can run and play in. He loves to relax in the grass on a beautiful day. He will play ball with you all day, if you let him. He would also love a nice couch to curl up on with you and a big bed to share with you. Linus is not a barker...he will cry or yawn, but he just doesn't like to bark. Linus, by far is an amazing dog that has so much to offer and is hoping to find his forever home.
