Following stay at home and social distancing guidelines, we will not be conducting home visits at this time, and new applications for adoption will be placed on hold. We still encourage you to put in an application if you are interested in adopting, and we will contact your veterinary reference and be ready to move forward when it is safe to do so.
Our friends at Freedom Collie Rescue have the sweetest sheltie/aussie mix girl available for adoption. She is shy at first, but once she warms up to you, she is your shadow for life. Let's help them find Marisol's forever home!
Marisol came to Freedom Collie Rescue from a local area shelter after her family could no longer care for her. She is a sweet 5 year old Sheltie/Aussie mix. Marisol had very large bladder stones removed, a dental, and a spa day. She is feeling sooo much better. But, she does need a new family that will help her take some weight off. She is very overweight at 69 lbs for her smaller frame. Marisol loves attention and is house and crate trained. All her shots are UTD, heartworm negative, spayed, and microchipped. She takes treats gently from your hand and likes other dogs. Marisol has lived a sheltered life so new things scare her. Once she gets comfortable her personality shines through She would be great in a quiet home with someone who will help her continue her weight loss. We do not know if she likes cats or not. She will need to be kept on her RX food and have monthly checks for UTI based on her bladder stone history. Marisol will make a great addition to a home that wants to shower her with love. If interested, please go to https://www.freedomcollierescue.org to apply for Marisol.
Abba is a Sheltie/miniature Aussie mix who came to us from another rescue group. She is a petite 11 or 12 inches tall, weighs about 17 pounds, and is estimated to be about 10 years old. She is spayed, current on vaccines, fecal negative, heartworm positive. When she came to us, she had a number of mammary tumors. She had a major surgery to remove all the tumors, which were sent off for biopsy. Some of the tumors were benign, but two were malignant. One of the malignant tumors was a high grade and unfortunately had spread into lymph nodes and the bloodstream. Because of that, it is possible that Abba will at some point have a recurrence of cancer locally or at other locations in her body. To see her, you would never know that she has any health problems. She eats well and gets along with the resident dogs and cat. Although she is a bit timid and shy, she often follows me around the house and sleeps in a dog bed beside my bed. She is well house trained, walks well on a leash, and enjoys being brushed. Our plan is to keep her happy and comfortable and exercise watchful waiting for any developments in her health status. We are glad to have this cute, perky little girl in our group.
Rascal, a 11 year old (DOB 11/19/09) tri-colored Sheltie, was an owner relinquishment (along with Tanner) due to death of his owner. Rascal is UTD, neutered, weighs 24 pounds and is heartworm/fecal negative. Rascal is a friendly but somewhat shy Sheltie who loves people. He freely gives tail wags and loves meeting everyone, especially when they give head scratches. He is very obedient, knows sit and is crate trained and house trained. He loves to be in the kitchen with his foster dad when dinner is being prepared, and follows him around everywhere. He is a sweet boy and is learning to trust his foster family with all the changes he has been through. It is hard to resist those beautiful brown eyes! Rascal would do best as an only dog in a home with no small children. He is unsure in high energy situations and can react negatively.
Rascal came to HSS diagnosed with diabetes and exocrine pancreatic insufficiency (EPI). He is currently on insulin injections given twice a day and pancreplus powder, a digestive aid and replacement therapy for the EPI. HSS is currently monitoring his blood glucose levels and adjusting his insulin units in order to get his glucose levels within normal ranges. Rascal is very good boy when given his insulin injections. He stands still and he makes it easy to administer the insulin shot.
Rascal would love a home where he is the one and only, and a family that would be dedicated to working with his medical needs. After losing the family that he has known since he was a puppy, he deserves to find a family that will love and accept him with his special needs. He will repay you with tail wags and perfect "SIT"s!
