JUST ARRIVED - 10/21/09
Arrival story: Kayden lived with a family for about a year and then they had a baby and kicked poor Kayden out of the house. He lived in the back yard for several years. A neighbor finally reported that he was being neglected and had no shelter. The Animal Control Officer convinced the owners to relinquish Kayden and then found out he was heartworm positive. Waggin Tails pulled Kayden from the shelter and is treating him for the heartworms. Kayden will be neutered after his treatment and then he will be ready for adoption.
Approximate age / weight: Kayden is 6 years old according to his former owners. He is 95 lbs but is underweight and could use another 10-15 lbs. He was neglected by his former owners.
Personality: Kayden made quite an impression on one of the volunteers when she went to Gladwin to pull dogs. Kayden is bigger than life with a bubbly personality and paws the size of a lionÂs! Kayden loves to be hugged and petted and has been friendly around other dogs. Unfortunately, Kayden has heartworms and has to undergo approximately 6 weeks of treatment beginning 10-26-09. Kayden will be neutered after this treatment is completed and then he will be ready for his forever home.
Forever home: We are learning about Kayden and will post more soon. Kayden is a very large, playful boy and should not be placed in a home with small children due to his size.
Pre-Adoption Application: To be considered for a dog, it is best to submit a pre-adoption application. The Pre-Adoption Application can be downloaded from our website - http://www.waggintailsdogrescue.org/adoptionprocess.html. Just complete the application and email it back to firstname.lastname@example.org
Waggin' Tails Adoption Information: Waggin' Tails Dog Rescue has a standard adoption fee of $175 for adult dogs. Different adoption fees apply for older dogs, small breeds and puppies - $100 for senior dogs (9 years +), $275 for small breed dogs and $200 for puppies plus a $50 deposit which is returned upon proof of spay/neuter at six months of age. Our adoption process includes an application, vet reference checks, and a home visit.
We do not have a facility; all of our dogs are fostered in private homes. To view our dogs, please check www.waggintailsdogrescue.org for the dates of our next adoption events. To meet a dog in person, please see our event calendar for the latest information. Arrangements can be made to meet our rescue dogs outside of Saturday adoption events after an approved application is submitted (the application does not imply an obligation by the applicant or by the rescue group).
Please be kind to our volunteers who have made rescue a second job that they do in their spare time after coming home from full-time jobs. E-mail inquiries will be answered much more quickly than phone inquiries; our phone number is a voice mailbox only.
Thank you for your support of rescue and your interest in a rescue dog!
