Adoptable Dogs

If you have a pet that you would like to have adopted, please complete a Courtesy Post Contract. Then, please send us the following information. Pet's name, sex, breed, Age (approximate birth date), description, whether spayed or neutered, whether up-to-date on inoculations, housebroken, general personality, how well the animal gets along with other animals and children, whether or not the animal has been de clawed, and whether or not the animal is an indoor pet or outdoor pet, and how to reach you. Send this information along with any other information, as well as photos to mewoof@bellsouth.net

I always prefer to adopt an older dog simply because they are calmer, are over their chewy tendencies, and someone else has usually house trained them for you!!! Carol West - RCHS Webmaster

I’ve never really been around children, but I’m pretty flexible and able to learn a new environment. I’m also learning to tolerate cats in my foster home. I have lived outdoors all my life, but really enjoy being inside in my foster home, mostly because I like to be around my foster mom and her dachshund, Millie. After being neglected most of my life, it’s nice to finally get some love and attention. I’m part hound dog, so I like to sniff, dig, and hunt, so I have to stay on a leash or in a fenced-in backyard when I'm outside. I love to play, sleep, and have my belly rubbed!!! (Check out my picture!) I would really like to live in a home where I would get lots of attention and where there are other dogs. I would also like plenty of space to run and play. I have a great personality and will make a really good forever pet and playmate. My foster mom would love to keep me, but she just doesn’t have enough room for me. I have had all my shots and been spayed. I hope you’ll consider adopting me.” The adoption fee is $125. LR
