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: Labrador Retriever / English Pointer / Mixed (short coat). Angels Among Us Animal Rescue announces a new Angel: Meet Chip! Chip is one of a litter of 14 puppies! Mom did not have enough milk to handle that many puppies so we were able to take 5 of her litter into foster and bottle feed them. Chip's mom is a yellow lab and dad was a hound or pointer mix. All 5 of the pups we have are black and white. Although they resemble Boston Terriers right now, given the fact mom is a lab, we believe they will mature into large dogs as adults. Chip is a healthy pup, and is due to be neutered and micro chipped prior to adoption. He will also have at least three sets of puppy shots. Chip has just been transported north to New England for adoption from TN. The adoption donation is $450 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.

We think he is a Boston terrier/Jack Russell Terrier mix but that is an honest guess! We have no background info on his parents. He has a little under-bite that makes his smiley face all the cuter! Hunter is a happy little guy with a lot of love to give! He is a bit shy in new situations but warms up. He plays well with others and loves attention. An ideal home for Hunter would be one with an active family to provide him with ample exercise. He is anxious of city noises so he would do best in the suburbs or country. Hunter loves everyone he meets including children. We do not know how he is with cats. He is healthy and up to date on all shots. Hunter has been transported north to New England from TN for adoption.

      Posted Breed: Jack Russell Terrier / Beagle / Mixed (short coat). Angels Among Us Animal Rescue announces a new Angel: Meet Travis and LaRue! ( see LaRue's photos in her online profile) Travis and his two siblings and mom, LaRue, were left to fend for themselves after their elderly owner fell and was unable to care for them. A neighbor saved the dogs and contacted rescue. This was almost two years ago! Two of the pups were adopted but Travis was too scared and shy to leave LaRue. These sweet dogs are still in a foster home waiting for their special forever. They are bonded and we are trying very hard to find them a home together. Travis and LaRue are very loving and have come a long way since they first arrived. LaRue enjoys snuggling with her foster parents and even Travis has begun to seek attention. 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. A fenced yard is a must for this girl with her beagle nose.... Travis and LaRue were transported to New England for adoption from TN. The adoption donation is $500 for the pair. *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.

A recent owner surrender, Rita has acclimated to life at her foster home almost instantly. This cute girl was well cared for but her owner was elderly and had too many pets to properly afford vet care and she thankfully surrendered most of her beloved animals. Rita is calm and easy going. She has not spent much time outdoors but has gone out with her foster buddies without any fuss. Rita would probably do best in a mature female home as she has not been around men and that is what she is used to. She has not shown an ounce of aggression and has been an overall little doll. She is a Chihuahua/Chinese Crested mix and when she gets excited her blonde Mohawk (along her back) will stand up! Rita tested negative for heart worm which is wonderful. She is current on her vaccinations, healthy and will be spayed and micro chipped ASAP. Rita is almost 5 years old and weighs about 10 pounds. Rita is currently in TN but will be transported to New England for adoption. AAUAR is courtesy listing Rita 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 7 years old and weighs in at 20 lbs. Spot has been in rescue for more than five 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 then he was so hyper and 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 heartworm negative, current on vaccinations, neutered and will be microchipped. Spot is currently in TN but will be transported to New England for adoption.
