Max (formerly Beans)

ADOPT received an update on Max (formerly Bean) from his fur-ever family! We hope you enjoy seeing it as much as we did! 🙂

Here is a picture of Max in my office (I work from home) – he sometimes naps while a work, and groans if he thinks I am talking on the phone too much! 😉


ADOPT received a new picture of Taco from his fur-ever family.  They just love the little guy! 🙂


ADOPT recently received an update on Velvet from her fur-ever family! We love seeing how happy our pups are in their new homes! 🙂

I wanted to give an update on border collie “Velvet.” She is settling in with me well and has learned her new name “Valley” quickly. She loves long walks, big bones, and snuggling with me on the couch. She is still shy when it comes to strangers, but she looks to me for confirmation that everything is okay. She is so sweet! I am incredibly thankful for this program. Valley is very smart and well-trained which has made her adjustment easier. Here are some pictures from our first few weeks together! We are already inseparable.


ADOPT received an update on Cookie from her fur-ever family! We hope seeing how happy she is in her new home makes you smile! 🙂

Cookie is doing great!!! She is an angel and has been walking and light jogging with me and my other dog. She loves my old dachshund and he tolerates her well! Whatever he does she does so if he drinks water she decides she wants water – it is really funny.

General information: Rex has crazy beautiful markings that can’t be adequately shown in photos. He’s stunning! He’s been with our rescue since February when he first arrived and joined the canine-inmate program. We felt that the environment might be a little stressful for him and decided to put him in a foster home…but then the world closed down. Recently we were finally able to move Rex into a foster and he has done wonderfully. He has come out of his shell, LOVES to be outside, loves to chase toys and will bring them back (mostly so that you can throw it again…and again…and again.) He is great on a leash, doesn’t pull, and loves his daily walks. He can be somewhat reserved when meeting new people but will warm up once he’s comfortable. He likes other dogs, will chase the resident cat, and is what we like to call a “velcro dog.” Wherever you are, he wants to be. Rex is also a sensitive soul and would do well in an environment where he had humans to interact with throughout the day. He needs daily outdoor play time and walks in order to stay happy and healthy. If you think you’d be a good match for Rex, please fill out an online application.

General information: Emmie was found by a good samaritan after she had been abandoned with a littermate. Her sister was adopted and Emmie joined our rescue! She is an energetic puppy who will play for hours and then cuddle up to watch TV. She loves chewing ice cubes and snuggling with her canine foster sister. She is sometimes unsure of new people or things but warms up quickly once she knows she’s safe. She’s learning how to walk on a leash and is crate trained. Emmie loves her toys and thrives on positive attention. Since she is still a youngster, she would do best in an environment where she can continue to get ongoing socialization and interaction with others.
Emmie is available for adoption in Columbus and immediate vicinity since she will need her boosters and spay surgery with one of our local veterinarians.
