Ready to be Adopted

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 parent(s) can provide more information about the personality of each animal.


Buddy

Buddy is a friendly dog looking for his loving family. He was abandoned by his family and he deserves a second chance. He is neutered, vaccines and rabies up today. Buddy is good with dogs and loves to be pet. He can flight to USA.


Ebony

Ebony is a lab mix, female, approximately 1.5 years old. She was rescued from Route 115. She has all her shot and she is spayed. She is good with dogs and cats (she tries to play with them and chases after them with her tail wagging). She tested positive for heartworm, so she is currently under treatment. She is also being trained!

Update on Ebony: We at ARF of Rincon are amazed on how much this girl has changed in the past weeks. Ebony has a beautiful and shiny black coat, nothing like when we rescued her. She recently had a play-date with one of our member’s dog and she had a blast! Ebony was off the leash, came when called, and never took off.

Sundae

Sundae is a very sweet female dog, Yorkie mix, approximately one year old. She has all her vaccines and is spayed. She is good with other dogs and cats, but she is better with children; Sundae loves loves loves to play with kids. She is very special as she needs attention 24/7, so she is the perfect dog for someone who is retired and wants constant companionship.

Puppy Madness!!!

November 2014 has been a month full of puppies! Most of their stories are sad, but is never too late to change that. If you have the time to train a dog, he or she could be the perfect companion.

The Kennedys of ARF

These are the adorable children of Jackie (a.k.a. Mama Beach, a.k.a. Jaxx), the sweet dog that was dumped in front of our office on November 5th. As of November 24, we are estimating that these adorable puppies are 5 weeks old, but they are starting to eat dry food and wandering all over the house! The two males (Jack and Ted) and one of their sisters (Jean) have a short tail just like mom. Rosemary seems to be the hungriest (as she is the biggest). And Patricia has a longer sleeve (front-right paw) than Kathleen. Mom is a mid-size dog.

Rabito’s Puppies

Remember Rabito? She is a little dog being fed at the new school in Calvache. She had 7 puppies but was hit by a car (don’t worry, she survived) and was too bruised to nurse them. Although very tiny, these puppies are already eating dry food (for puppies) and running all around the house! They were born on October 12th, 2014. Five of them have been adopted; there are two males left. When they grow, we estimate that these will be small dogs.

Other Puppies

 

Two females and two males, 9 weeks old as of November 24th, 2014

In Need of a Foster Home

Not sure if you are ready to adopt? Then you can start by fostering a furry friend. ARF of Rincon will assist you and help you while the animal is adopted (or hopefully you will fall in love with your fostered child and adopt him/her). Here are the ones that need to be placed in a foster home so they can start getting ready to be placed for adoption.

Azul*

azul1azul2azul3*Urgent Case – Foster Need

Azul is a boxer mix that needs a lot of loves and care. A USA couple that is visiting Rincon rescued him. He will likely need care over the next week or two for medications and vitamins. He needs to recover fully from anemia prior to being neutered, which we are also willing to pay for.

Rabito

At the construction site of the new school in Calvache Sector, Rabito gave birth to several puppies. The construction workers and the security guards have made her a little doggie house for her and her babies, but she needs to be placed in a foster home.

***UPDATE: Rabito was hit by a car on October 31st, 2014. Luckily it was a responsible driver who stopped and took her to the vet. She has no fractures but she is pain; she has scratches near her belly so she didn’t want to nurse the puppies. The puppies have been placed in a foster home where they have to be fed by bottle. If you can help (with anything), please call us at 787-823-7167 or 787-629-1246.
