Find-a-Friend Friday: Tweak

Because ferrets need homes too!

Little Tweak here is currently staying with I Am Ferret. I don’t know if they’re a newish rescue, or if I’ve just managed to miss their previous listings, but this is the first time I’ve found one of their little guys on Petfinder. Tweak is adorable if you happen to like pink noses and little feetsies – and really, who doesn’t? He’s one of three ferrets currently staying with I Am Ferret; perhaps you’d like to adopt a friend for him too?

 

Tweak
Ferret: An adoptable ferret in Liberty, MO

Tweak is a young adult ferret, age unknown. Very playful and extra cuddly. Good for a single or multiple ferret home. Cages alone but plays well with other ferrets. Seems to be fine with cats and kids. Very healthy.

To begin the adoption process, please complete our Adoption Application on the I Am Ferret Website.

Find-a-Friend Friday: Zoosy

March 22nd, 2013 11:36 am by Kelly


Zoosy, why you so cutesy?

Zoosy is a special dog for a special human. A gentle teddy bear of a boy, he needs someone who can keep a close eye on him due to an ongoing medical situation. He’s had issues with bladder stones in the past and his urethra was enlarged so that he could pass them, but he needs a low-protein diet and a little extra TLC. Don’t worry though, this guy is totally worth it!

 

ZOOSY
English Bulldog: An adoptable dog in Grandview, MO
Large • Adult • Male

Zoosy is a truly wonderful dog. He is blessed with a gentle, loving and carefree personality. He knows how to work the room and is always ready to play. He does love to wrestle and hopes his new owner isn’t afraid of a little slobber.

Zoosy has a rare medical problem but one that is more commonly seen in male Bulldogs. He makes cysteine stones in his bladder and those small stones were traveling through his urinary tract and causing an obstruction. When he came into our program he was unable to urinate freely and needed urgent medical attention. We performed a surgical procedure that eliminated the risk of obstruction. After a scrotal urethrostomy he has a larger opening to urinate out of, allowing the small stones to pass out easily. He has an opening to urinate much like a female dog would and is in the same general location as a female dog. His urethrostomy site is completely healed and he is doing great.

Zoosy is on a low protein prescription diet (u/d) due to the stone formation. He may be more prone to developing urinary tract infections and will need ongoing medical care if that is the case. He has an elongated soft palate as do the majority of Bulldog’s but this is not causing any problems at this time. He has a slight entropion of the right lower eyelid and will need ongoing monitoring of this problem. It is a common finding of bracycephalic breeds and may need medical or surgical care in the future.

Zoosy will need an attentive owner that is able to provide ongoing and possibly aggressive medical care. He is very healthy right now and should have a normal life span. He is vaccinated and tested heartworm negative. He is very good about keeping his kennel clean and should easily transition to a home environment.

His adoption fee is $600. Please inquire via email ONLY so we can manage the incoming applications in a timely manner. An application can be found at www.grandviewvet.com under the Hard Luck Hounds tab. Email completed applications to hardluckhounds@gmail.com.

You can access an application for adoption at www.grandviewvet.com under the Hard Luck Hounds tab. Prior to adoption all Hard Luck Hounds dogs are:
Spayed or neutered
Heartworm tested
Vaccinated
Treated for intestinal parasites
Micro-chipped

Adopting your new best friend is always better than shopping for one!

Cookie and Max are two lovely little kitties who are looking for love (that’s you!) at the Heart of America Humane Society.

And since HAHS wants to make that happen, they’re offering a discount if you adopt these friends together. Yay, everyone wins!

 

Cookie

As HAHS now has several adoption locations, please contact Beth at bkarlsen.HAHS@gmail.com or 913.648.6713 to find out when and where you can meet COOKIE!

Find-a-Friend Friday: Barney

March 8th, 2013 2:02 pm by Kelly


Smiles!

I don’t think I’ve ever featured a dog from National Great Pyrenees Rescue before. Barney looks to be the only dog currently being fostered in the Kansas City area, so probably the group – which is a national breed rescue – doesn’t have a very large presence in the area? That’s my best guess, anyway.

Conversely, if you’re reading this from outside of the state, don’t let Barney’s location deter you; the group can arrange transport to the northeast for an additional fee. This is how our first dog, Ralphie, came to live with us: we adopted him from the Dachshund Rescue of North America, which transported him from his foster home in Indiana to New York, where we were living at the time.

Now on to Barney, who sounds like a pretty awesome guy!

 

 

Barney in KS
Great Pyrenees/Pointer Mix: An adoptable dog in Lenexa, KS
Extra Large • Young • Male

Full listing and online application at…. www.nationalpyr.org/rescue-dogs (sorry, no phone submissions).

Barney is a young male Pyrenees and Pointer mix, and is about a year old at most. He is very sweet, and is learning basic manners and commands quickly. He loves to play outdoors, and is pretty quiet and easy going indoors, especially for his young age. He likes all people, is good with kids but gets anxious if they chase him so probably best for a family that doesn’t have toddlers. Barney is great on car rides, a great leash walker, and loves other dogs; he is not cat tested yet.

Barney is house trained, is crate training slowly, and he does fine uncrated at night. He will make a family a wonderful happy go lucky companion. Barney is fully vetted including all vaccines, heart worm negative, neutered, dewormed, and microchipped. If you would like to apply to adopt this sweetie please submit an adoption application – hope to hear from you soon!

Adoption fee will be provided by the rescue when application is received; transport available to the northeast for an additional fee.

Have you ever seen a cuter kitty than Apollo here? Seriously, he makes my Lemmy look like a scrub. I can only assume that the boy’s named after Captain Lee Adama.

Apollo’s mom has already been adopted, and now he’s patiently waiting for his turn. Karma’s Rescue. Call them!

 

 

Apollo
Tabby – Buff/Ragdoll Mix: An adoptable cat in Kansas City, MO
Large • Baby • Male

Apollo is a brave & bold little boy that loves to play. He also loves to be held and will just melt in your arms. His mama is a beautiful flame point Ragdoll who has already found a home so now it is time for Apollo’s new family to come and take him home. It is hard to tell but Apollo has beautiful blue eyes just like his mama.

Apollo is fostered with other cats, dogs and kids and get along great with everybody.

All cats/kittens will be spay/neutered before going to their new homes, up to date on vaccinations, tested for FIV/Feline Leukemia, dewormed and are on flea preventative. We adopt to indoor homes only.

DOB 4/2012

Adoption fee is $125 which includes all of the above vetting. If you would like to meet one of our babies, please email karmasrescue@hotmail.com for an application or call 816-509-6006 for general questions about our adoption process.
