Adopt

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.


Capulina

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.

 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.

Carmelita and her puppies

Carmelita is about 1 year old, good with other dogs, cats, kids, adults… everyone! Her puppies are just adorable (well, all puppies are) and they are about 4 months old (as of December, 2015).

Carmelita is a medium size dog.

Charlie

Adorable male (maybe has some basset hound in him?) less than a year old (10 months in December, 2015) who likes to cuddle and is very sweet. He walks very well with a leash unless he sees dogs to play with!

Whitey

Cute little girl (around 1-year old) who likes kids and is housetrained. Perfect for somebody that lives in an apartment. Fully vetted and spayed.

Briggs

Sad story: his owners left Puerto Rico and were not able to take him with them. Do not be fooled, this big dog is as sweet as they can be. Briggs is about 7 years and he deserves to be an old dog with someone who can love him. He is low maintenance and he just likes to nap next to you; nothing bothers him (not even cats!).

Chance

Chance’s story is also sad 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.

And more puppies! 

Just rescued on January 31st, 2016, these four males are only one month old. We looked for names of four brothers and we came with: Daniel, Alec, William, and Stephen (recognize those?). Surprisingly, they are very mellow for such a young age (i.e. they do not bark or cry). Here they are!

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.

*** None at this moment***

    I am here for 4 months and have my own cat who is a rescue from the DR. He had wonderful friends that would come to stay with us from the Hotel next door when we are here. Sadly they have been killed by dogs. We are both terribly sad about our sweet friend Sonjia, in particular, who we had spayed and had for 3 years, sharing with the Hotel. I would love to foster a cat until the beginning of April if that is possible. It would give my sweet Senor Algo Mas (my male cat) a friend to play with and love, and the new foster a loving happy healthy home with plenty of food and love. Algo is very healthy all shots up to date and gets flea and tick med regularly. He is an indoor/outdoor cat but stays very close to home. We live in our own condo next to the Rincon Beach Resort on the beach. Unfortunately, the Hotel does not want to have any cats anymore, so the fostering would be until April only.
    Please let me know.
