A tribute to senior pets. What is a Sanctuary Dog?

Sanctuary dogs tend to fall into two categories.

The first type is the adoptable yet overlooked, sometimes older, sometimes younger, sometimes maybe not the best looking in the bunch. These are dogs that still have so much love to give and have sat waiting very patiently for a home to call their own. For these special sweethearts we are still looking for their "forever" home. If you have an empty place in your heart that needs filling -- consider a sanctuary dog.

The second type of sanctuary dogs are the ones that will live at the rescue forever. These dogs tend to either suffer from health problems, extreme shyness or just simply senior citizens. The rescue will care for these dogs with the best care we can give until it is their time to cross the Rainbow Bridge.


LONG TERM SANCTAURY DOGS LOOKING FOR LOVE….
Peanut
PEANUT

Peanut is approx. 7 years old and came to the rescue in August 2007.  She was a stray that was rescued from under a shed with new puppies.  Peanut is a dollbaby of a beagle but can be shy starting out.  She does well with most other dogs but prefers her canine friends to be male.  Once you’ve won this girl’s heart she is all yours. Peanut just needs a loving, patient owner willing to work a little to get a lot of love in return!

Chloe
Chloe

Chloe is approx. 5 years old and 30lbs. She was rescued from the Caroline County Pound where she was turned in by her owner...her crime...'she won't hunt'. Chloe is not a hunter, she's a lover! This beagle girl has those soulful eyes that just melt your heart. She is taller then your average beagle but not by much. Chloe would be happiest as the only pet with a fenced yard to play in and just be a dog. This girl would be a wonderful, loyal & loving companion.

Evette
Evette

Evette is approx. 5 years old and 25lbs. She was rescued from the Caroline County Pound. She is  a pretty girl with lots of potential. Evette is a beagle mix nad has a natural docked tail like a jack russell but look like a beagle. Evette is a little shy but warm up quickly and want to be loved. A home with a fenced yard will be needed for her and a doggie friend would be terrific. If you are looking for a gentle, quiet yet happy playful girl then she could be the one for you!

Julep
Julep

 

Julep is approx. 7 years and 50-55lbs…she is like a cool, refreshing mint julep! She was rescued with her puppies who have long since gone to new homes. Julep is a bit timid at first but loves attention once she knows you are ok. She loves other dogs and is submissive with them. Her foster mom says she has a great smile and a gentle soul. Julep has done really well in her indoor/outdoor kennel and knows how to use a doggie door. A fenced yard would be necessary in my new home. Julep would really love to have a human family to call my own especially children.

Penny
Penny

Penny is approx. 5 years old and 45lbs. This pretty foxhound mix was rescued from the Hanover County Pound. This sweetheart has blossomed into a social lovebug! Penny loves attention and loves to be petted. She will make a wonderful pet for a family or a just a great companion. Penny is depressed here at the shelter and so deserves a home to call her own. She does do well with other animals and a fenced yard would be best for this girl. 


PERMANENT SANCTUARY DOGS

Dylan
Dylan

Dylan is approx. 14 years old and was an abandoned stray to the rescue. He came to the rescue at only about 14lbs, almost blind, rotten mouth and heartworm positive. Dylan is a diabetic and has gone totally blind but is a healthy 30lb boy today receiving a balanced diet & insulin twice a day. He can’t be neutered or have a dental so he gets Clindamycin twice a day the first 14 days of every month because his dental disease affects his blood sugar. After 2 years on heartworm preventive he is now heartworm free. Dylan will spend his days here laying on his Kuranda bed soaking up the sun.

Stacy
Stacy

Stacy is approx. 10 years old and was a pregnant stray running around in a business park. She came to the rescue in 2007 and just never found another place to call home. Stacy is a low key beagle mix girl who is content just to be. She loves running in the play yard with her doggie friends and will spend the rest of her days here being cared for to the best of our abilities.
