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 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 dashing 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.
Jojo is a female Rottweiler that does not require a lot of energy (she is very calm and likes to walk slowly). She is around 5 years old, good with children, other dogs, and cats. She is spayed and has all her vaccines (i.e. 4dx and rabies). Jojo needs a great person who can love her.
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. Now, he is doing much better (he is not limping anymore) and soon will be neutered. 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).
Blanca Nieves and her puppies
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.
Two of Blanca’s babies, who are 8 weeks old (as of April 2015), are Happy Boy and Casper Boy. They have their shots up-to-date.
Vela and Makaira
Vela and Makaira are both female, both around 9 weeks old and they have their shots up-to-date. They are too young to be sterilized; if you want to adopt one of our females, you must sign a contract stating that you will take them to the vet for this procedure when they are 6-months old. Afterwards, you must provide evidence of this, as is ARF’s main goal to reduce the overpopulation of stray dogs and cats in Rincón and all of Puerto Rico.
