Posted Breed: Shepherd / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Angels Among Us Animal Rescue announces a new Angel: Meet Piper! Piper is a 5 year old shepherd lab mix that was rescued out of a local high kill shelter where he was due to be put to sleep the following morning. This sweet fellow is just as nice as can be; we have no idea why he ended up at the shelter. He was treated for Heart Worm after we took him in last summer. Piper has soulful brown eyes and already is prematurely sporting a white muzzle. He is about 55-60 pounds and gets along fine with all dogs. Piper is good with kids (though babies make him nervous) and cats too! He is house trained as well as crate and leash trained. Piper is affectionate and will make a great buddy! He especially likes men and seems to want to bond with the man of the house but he certainly loves everyone. He would do fine as an only dog or in a home with a doggy sibling. Piper 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.

      Posted Breed: Shih Tzu / Cocker Spaniel / Mixed (long coat). Angels Among Us Animal Rescue announces a new Angel: Meet Donahue! Donahue is a young adult shih tzu and possibly cocker spaniel mix. Donahue was found as a stray wandering on the street. He was so matted and dirty that he had to be shaved down. His skin needs a little time to heal but he should grow in a lovely coat. Donahue is sweet and has been great with other dogs and all the people he has met. He tends to bark when stressed or around other dogs, but at home he has been quiet and calm. He would do best as an only dog unless you enjoy endless barking (!!!) We think he is about 4 years old and is a small dog (11pounds). Donahue is healthy and will be up to date on all shots and neutered prior to adoption. Donahue is currently in TN but will be transported to New England for adoption. AAUAR is courtesy listing Donahue for Guardian Angels Pet Rescue (GAPR) of Memphis, TN. All GAPR dogs are fostered in Tennessee. The adoption donation is $400 which includes a health certificate, transport north and a micro chip. *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.

      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 .
