Adoption Pending and recently adopted Dogs
When a foster home agrees their foster dog is a good match for an approved adopter, the foster dog is deemed "Adoption Pending." These are our most recent "Happy Tails."
RESCUED AND IN OUR CARE
These dogs are being evaluated in their foster homes. During this time, the foster parent will obtain treatment for any medical needs. They will also get to know the dog's personality, and determine what kind of forever home is best. This review period can be from two weeks to several months, depending on the circumstances. Some of the dogs on here will not make it up to the "Adoptable" section. Foster parents always have the option to adopt their fosters, and there may be other reasons as well. So we can't give information or take applications for any dogs in this section.
Medical/Heartworm Treatment & Long Time Care
Our dogs listed below came into rescue with significant medical needs. Many have been diagnosed with heartworm, and most endure months of treatment. Others came in emaciated, with skin infections, or with fractures or other serious conditions. With medical treatment, good nutrition, and lots of TLC, these setters will regain their strength and will soon be ready for adoption. At times, a dog in our care is diagnosed with a terminal condition. These dogs will be marked as hospice.
Medical care for these dogs is very expensive, and adoption fees cover only 28% of our costs. Would you consider making a donation before you leave this page? Donate here »
