Labrador Retriever / Shepherd •
Tess is a 6 year old lab mix who is a little overweight weighing in at 68 pounds. Lucky for her she loves going for walks and running around the backyard so all she needs is a loving family to help her work off the extra weight (: Tess is fostered with two large dogs, a male and a female. It took her a couple days to warm up to them and find her place among them so I would encourage slow introductions to any dogs you may have - but she loves to run and play with the other dogs now that she knows them! She was also fostered with an older cat and she was very gentle and curious and spent much of her time hanging out with him. Tess is looking for a family willing to give her all the belly rubs and back scratches and she will return the favor with endless wiggles and love! Her adoption fee is $250.
If you've already applied and would like to transfer your application to Tess, please submit an Adoption Application Transfer Request.

All of our dogs come spayed or neutered, up to date on vaccinations, including rabies (if age appropriate) and bordetella, are microchipped, heartworm negative, current on flea/tick and heartworm prevention, dewormed, and treated for any ailments found upon veterinary examination. The adoption fee covers a portion of these services, and makes it possible for us to continue rescuing animals. Please note that our pets come from shelters, so we CANNOT guarantee age, breed, mix of breeds, or adult size.
For more information on the adoption fees and the adoption process, please complete our adoption application - an application allows us to get to know your family better so we can assess whether the animal you are interested in is a good match for your home.
An application does not obligate you to adopt, and can be transferred to any pet. Please understand that due to the volume of applications some animals receive, we are unable to contact all applicants. If your application is considered a good fit for the pet you are interested in, or even a different pet, a volunteer will give you a call within 7-10 days. If you would like to transfer your application to a different pet, please submit an adoption application transfer request. You will need the application number and email address from your original application.
We are a foster-based rescue and do not have a shelter location where pets can be seen during the week. Please see our Facebook page for our weekly adoption album if you are interested in meeting a pet in person. Not all animals attend every adoption event, please check our Facebook page for animal event times and locations before you make a trip to meet a specific animal. Please note that we do not perform same-day adoptions.
Thanks so much for caring about a needy animal!
