If you are ready to adopt a dog or a cat, here are the ones currently available. All those available for adoption are currently in foster homes, so their foster parents can provide more information about the personality of each animal. If you are still not sure about which dog or cat to adopt, we will let you take the animal for a week as a “trial”; that way you can be sure that you are making the right decision.
Lilo & Stitch
We won’t lie, we are running out of names. These two small-size dogs were rescued at the Lighthouse of Rincón; while waiting for the vet to check them out, we asked a little girl to named them. Her answer: Lilo and Stitch! And that’s how we named them. Both are males, vaccines up to date, over a year old (but not older than two years) and very sweet. They love it when you pet them. Both of them ignore cats and are good with kids (and adults). It takes them a while to be around other dogs; afterwards they are all about playing! Still, we think they have been neglected for so long that all they need is love.
Capulina is a daschund mix and was rescued when she was pregnant; she gave birth to PD, Cameo, Oreo and Patch – all of them have been adopted and now is mom’s turn! Capulina is approximately a year and a half old, she is spayed and has all her vaccines up-to-date.
What a sweet-sweet dog! Valentina was dumped in a friend’s yard on March 28th, 2015. She appears to be 4 months old and we observed that she is good with cats and other dogs. That same day she started deworming treatment and had her first boost of the vaccines combo. Valentina was then taken to a foster home with another dog and they started playing right away! We estimate that she will be a medium size dog (on the “big” size) but she sure has lots of love to give as she likes to cuddle.
BB king was rescued near the Burger King on Route 115 – hence his name. This sweet male dog was hit by a car and hurt his leg. He has all his vaccines and the vet estimates that he is about one year-old, so he is full grown (he is a medium-sized dog). Because of his accident, he has a permanent limp, but he runs like the wind! We believe that he will be great for a family that needs to looks at the bright side of things as BB king is has a great attitude and he does not let his limp affect him in any way – he is always happy!
Blanca Nieves is a sweet pit bull – mix who recently gave birth to pups. She is in a foster home with other dogs and she gets along with everybody (as you can see from the picture – she is the big one!). She has all her vaccines and is approximately a year and a half old.
Abbey and the last of her puppies
Abbey is a small size dog who had puppies recently. They turned one month on August 15th, 2015, so they are ready to be adopted. They will be small-size once they are fully grown. Remember: puppies need to be train, so be sure that you have the time (and the patience) to teach your new puppy some basic commands, specially to be house-trained if you are planning to keep them inside the house.
Camille’s puppies – coming up
Robin Hood is a loving dog with a big heart. He is great with other dogs, cats and children. He is a beach boy as he absolutely loves to run in the sand and swim in the ocean. Robin Hood has all his vaccines, he is fixed and seems to be around 2 (maybe 3) years old.
Lucy is a very tiny and timid dachshund mix; she is also a “low rider” (has very short legs). Lucy is less than a year old (veterinarian says maybe around 10 months) and she is spayed and fully vaccinated. Lucy only weighs 10 pounds so she will be easy to take her anywhere.
Canela was recued from an abusive situation that really breaks our hearts. She was tied around a tree (a wire was used as a collar) and she was covered in ticks. Because of this, she tested positive for Ehrlichiosis and her platelets are low. Still, she is very sweet and needs a loving family.
IN NEED OF A FOSTER HOME
Because ARF of Rincon is not a shelter, we continuously find ourselves helping dogs that we do not have the space to give them shelter. If you want to help us by fostering a dog, here are the ones that we need to take out of the streets.
Named because she gave birth near Casa Hines in Los Almendos Beach, Mama Hines had two puppies that we sent to the states. To reduce the overpopulation of strays in Rincon, Mama Hines got all her vaccines, was spayed and released to the area she was found. She likes to be pet and gets along with other dogs.
Brave is a female rottweiler around 6 months. She is very timid and scared of everything, so we named her Brave hoping that her character will change as she grows older. Braves has all her vaccines but cannot be spayed until she gains some weight.
