Barrett has been adopted! 06-01-2009
Barrett was rescued just in the nick of time. We were just made aware of a county "over-flow" facility where the animals are euthanized after 4 days regardless of their adoptability. This warehouse serves as an overflow for the county facility when it is full. Unfortunately, no one knows about this facility and rarely are animals adopted from here. It is very sad that this continues to go on. Barrett was brought to our attention by a small group of rescuers who are trying to rescue and place as many animals as possible from this holding facility. The group wasn't sure if Barrett was a German Shepherd as they had never seen the sable coloring. When we saw pictures of Barrett, we knew we had to save him. He is all of two years old and sweet as pie. His scar across his face tells a tale of abuse or injury--which one we are not sure. He is happy go lucky with all that he meets!
The minimum adoption donation for adults is $375 and the adoption donation for puppies is $500. This amount only partially covers the cost of veterinary care, boarding fees, and other miscellaneous expenses involved in the temporary care and adoption of our dogs and is tax deductible when permitted by law. The adoption donation provides that all dogs will be spayed or neutered, receive current vaccinations, and are microchipped. If not, arrangements will be made on an individual basis ( i.e., puppies who will need to be altered by 6 mos old). Special consideration may be given to those willing to adopt older dogs or dogs with physical problems.
