Rex

Rex

Breed: Catahoula Leopard Dog mix
Sex: Male neutered
Estimated birthdate: May 2018
Size: M, 43 lbs
Good with cats: will chase
Good with kids: unknown
Housebroken: usually signals at door
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.

Emmie

Emmie

Breed: Mixed, unknown
Sex: Female
Estimated birthdate: Jan 2020
Size: EST M/L full grown. 50+ lbs
Good with cats: unknown
Good with kids: unknown
Housebroken: in training
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.

Cora

Cora

Breed: Mixed, Shepherd/Hound
Sex: Female, spay surgery pending
Estimated birthdate: Sept 2018
Size: L, 50+ lbs
Good with kids: unknown
Good with cats: unknown
Housebroken: yes
General information: Cora is a beautiful girl who arrived from a rural southern kill shelter. She was temporarily fostered with elementary aged kids and did great. She is now in a foster home with a large male dog and seems to like other dogs in general. She is laid back for her age and genuinely just likes the company of people. Her foster mom says she hasn’t quite figured out what to do with toys but is curious about them. She hangs out while her foster parents work from home and is really chill. She’s polite about taking treats and food. Leash skills are still a work in progress but she’s smart and a fast learner. She’s been out and about during the day, settles down in her crate but isn’t a huge fan of being in there. Cora would thrive in a home where she had plenty of human or canine company.

Arlo

Arlo

Breed: Beagle mix
Sex: Male neutered
Estimated birthdate: April 2018
Size: M, approx 30 lbs
Good with kids: unknown
Good with cats: yes
Housebroken: yes
General information: Sweet Arlo is happily quarantining with his foster family, including their resident cats. His foster mom says he is very cuddly, rarely barks (not a fan of being in the crate though) and very loyal with those he trusts. He loves going on walks and then settling in for the evening. He plays nicely with toys, ignores the household cats, and when he’s happy he “prances” with his tail wagging! Arlo is still reserved with new people and warms up once he gets to know you. He would be a wonderful family companion or a faithful friend for “empty nesters.” He genuinely just likes to be with people. Since he has such a skilled sniffer, he’d do well in a home that will take him on walks or provide him with adequate outdoor time (ie fenced yard.)

Adoptions During COVID-19

*CRC Adoptions Currently on Hold*
In light of the current social distancing and essential business restrictions, we are unable to do adoptions for any of our dogs in the Canine-Inmate Program located at the Correctional Reception Center in Orient. However, we ARE still doing adoptions for dogs that are in foster homes.
On the biography of each dog, it will state whether the dog is in a foster home or in the Canine-Inmate Program. If you are interested in meeting a fostered dog, please fill out an online application. We are conducting virtual home visits and doing “touch free” handoffs once you have been approved.

We thank you for your understanding as we work to ensure that our staff, volunteers and community remain healthy as we all navigate through this together.  You can also always help support us and the animals currently in our care by shopping at Kroger and AmazonSmile when you stock up on supplies!  Please be smart and stay safe, everyone!! 🙂

Mallard

ADOPT recently received an update on Mallard from his fur-ever family! We hope this helps brighten your day! 🙂

I just wanted to send you a message to thank you for helping to coordinate our adoption experience with A.D.O.P.T.!

We were able to visit Mallard on Saturday and decided to adopt him that day! His foster mom was able to tell us anything we needed to know about him and answered all of our questions. Bringing him home, he has been an absolute joy for us and so well-behaved. It is obvious that the prison-training program and his foster home both made a huge impact on him. We are so thankful to have him!

**We are currently unable to schedule meet & greet appointments or do home visits in accordance with the recommendations from the CDC to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.**

Breed: Pointer/Spaniel/Mix
Sex: Male neutered
Estimated birthdate: January 2017
Size: M/L est. 55 lbs
Good with cats: unknown
Good with kids: unknown
General information: Looking for someone to play ball? Here’s your guy! Mallard is an awesome dog and we haven’t got the slightest idea why he hasn’t been snatched up yet. He knows his basic commands, doesn’t beg, waits to be invited up onto the furniture, is quiet in his crate and is housebroken. He’s not a “velcro” dog but he is affectionate and loves to curl up nearby. He is also able to entertain himself with toys (he LOVES toys!) Rope toys, stuffed animals and balls are his very favorite…not a fan of squeak toys but everything else is big fun. Mallard still likes to weave while leash walking, but that’s because there’s soooo much to see and smell! He really loves being outdoors and would do best with a fenced yard or with someone who will take him on daily walks. Mallard has been in our canine-inmate program but has spent time in a foster home too. He’s a well rounded boy who will be a great companion for someone looking for a family dog or a partner to have adventures with.
