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.
Tita (a.k.a. Mama Hines)
Tita, who we initially named “Mama Hines” (as she gave birth to puppies near the Casa Hines in Los Almendros”) is a “large-medium” female dog (she weighs around 40 pounds). Tita was the first dog in our Spay & Release Program, but now she is in a foster home and she is doing great! She gets along with other dogs and with children and she completely ignores cats. Tita has all her vaccines and is house-trained. If you want a beach dog, Tita is your best choice as she absolutely loves to run on the sand.
Chance’s story is a sad one as his “owner” wanted to put him to sleep because they couldn’t feed him anymore. He is about 2-years old, small size, fully vetted and neutered. Likes kids and likes female dogs (yes, only female dogs). He has some abandonment and abuse issues, but he is very very sweet. Chance needs someone with lots of patience that can reassure him that he will not be hurt anymore.
Penelope and Kisha
These two were rescued together; they were living in a house in bad conditions but they are full of love and they are used to children (as they were many in the house). Kisha (white one) is full of energy and very friendly; Penelope (black one) is more timid.
In two weeks there were 36 puppies that entered both our program and one of our fellow rescuers, Tiah Scheible. Is difficult to post all 36 pictures, but here are some. Remember to check our Facebook page for lots of pictures and updated information.
And we also have kittens. These are just adorable!
Cuca, Betty Boop, Tin Tin, and Faces
These four puppies are only 6 weeks old (as of April, 2016). They had their first booster.
Doobie Max is around 5 years old; he is neutered and has all his vaccines.
Tiger and Lion
These two brothers are only three months old (as of April, 2016) but they have all their vaccines. In three more months they can be neutered.
Chip and Dale
Chip and Dale, also brothers, are seven months old (as of April, 2016). They are both neutered and have all their vaccines.
Estrellita, female dog, is only one year old (as of April, 2016). She is spayed and has all her vaccines.
Rescued in Los Almendros Beach, Playa is a sweet female; the veterinarian believes she is a little bit older than one-year old (as of April 15th, 2016). She was recently spayed and vaccinated. Playa is a “low-rider” and she is fully grown. She weighs around 30 pounds. Knows how to walk in a leash, and gets along with both dogs and cats. And she is getting to be house-trained!
IN NEED OF A FOSTER HOME
Because ARF of Rincón is not a shelter, we continuously find ourselves helping dogs even if 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 off the streets.
Tico – in Los Almendros Beach – UPDATE: ADOPTED.
This friendly male dog was with Playa. We were able to find a place for Playa, but the male is still in need of a foster home. Tico is very sweet and loves belly rubs. He tends to bark at dog but then gets scared if a dog approaches him. If you can foster him, please let us know as we will get him ready for adoption (i.e. vaccinate him and neuter him).
In Calvache Neighborhood – UPDATE: He is an foster home
This male puppy is being fed by neighbors but needs a foster home. Let us know if you can help. ARF will cover the expenses for the veterinarian and food if you help us.
