Hello, my name is Odin. I’m an 11 month old male, Chihuahua/Mini Pin. I’m good with kids and dogs. I’m active and would love to have a fenced in yard to run around in. I know my basic commands. I’m a super sweet boy and love attention. I’m pee pad trained and pretty close to being housebroken. If you’re interested in adopting me, please submit an application online, and we’ll make an appointment for you to come meet me. I can’t wait to find my forever home.
This is KoKo and I know you will fall in love with her because of her good looks. KoKo needs a family/person that will love her forever. In the 8 months of KoKo’s life she has never been walked on a leash. So now when she feels the leash around her neck, she just drops to the ground and refuses to walk. KoKo also has never been socialized, so when she sees people all she wants to do is run to a corner and hide. But with help from the volunteers at the shelter we have been working with KoKo. We are trying to make her feel she doesn’t need to be scared anymore. KoKo will need a family/person that will understand that with all that hair comes maintenance, and living in the Florida heat will need grooming. KoKo is still a puppy and so far she likes playing with other dogs. If you are interested in KoKo and have a dog(s) a meet and greet will need to be set up. Please send your application online.
Hi there, my name is Emma and I’m a Dalmatian mix, 7-8 years old. I’m a very good girl, but can be territorial with my food and other animals. I would be best as an only dog with older or no children. I love to run around so I need a fenced in yard. I’m very friendly and loyal. Ask to come meet me, and I’ll give you 101 reasons to take me home.
Hi there, my name is Stark and handsome is my game. I’m a typical “teenager” male German shepherd, only 1 ½ years old. I’m in need of a dad with a firm, but loving hand to bring me home. I will be his best buddy, and I’m willing to be taught to be the best dog that I can be. I need someone who is experienced with my breed and has no other pets. I would do best in a single parent home without children. I need all your attention and don’t like to be left alone. I am smart, brave and loving in my own silly and aloof way. My friend, at the shelter who loves me, tells me I am an “incredible boy”! I absolutely LOVE to play fetch with tennis balls catching them in the air, on the ground or in the pool! I do need a fenced yard so I can run and run. So, if you think we would be great buddies, please call the shelter and make an appointment to come meet me. Hope to see you soon!!!
Black Lab Mix- Female- 3 Years old
Hyacinth is such a sweetheart. Just by looking at her you would never know the pain this dog went through. Hyacinth came to the shelter as a stray, very skinny and her skin was in bad shape. What caught the shelter’s attention was her teeth were shaved down. Hyacinth had scars all over her face and some on her body. She was being used as a bait dog. As bad as that sounds, she was still willing to give everyone at the shelter love as soon as she met them.
Hyacinth will make a great family dog. She is good with kids and adults. Due to her past life, living with other dogs will not be possible. She loves toys, such as her Giggle ball, and she absolutely loves to eat. Hyacinth will need adopters who will spend time with her, and show her what it means to be a house dog. If your interested in adopting or fostering Hyacinth contact the shelter. She deserves the chance to know what a home feels like.
Rhodesian Mix- Male-8 Months old
Chester can be shy at first but when he warms up to you, he’s all about getting the attention. Chester absolutely loves his doggy biscuits, and belly rubs. He is a big dog that thinks he’s a lap dog. Chester would do best as the only dog in an adult family household.
Female/ Boxer Pit Mix/ 2 Years Old
My name is Roxie and i’m your high energy type of girl. Im looking for my forever family. I can be dog selective so a meet and greet will need to be set up. I like kids but older kids would be best for me because of all my energy. I love to go on walks but I am still working on not pulling on a leash. I will also require a fenced in yard where I can do lots of running and playing.
Male/ Lab Mix/ 4 Years Old
My name is Rocky and I found myself at a high kill shelter for being a wallflower. Dogs And Cats Forever saved me from there and gave me a chance to fined a forever home. Im good with other dogs but a slow introduction is always recommended. I love to go on walks sometimes I can get a little to excited and start pulling but then I calm down. Stop by the shelter to meet me I would love to have you pet and play with me.
(Update: thanks to the Boenish family, Odin’s blood work costs have been graciously sponsored. Thank you!)
Meet Odin! Odin came to the shelter as an abused and underweight stray. He is a 3 year-old American Bulldog mix. Sadly, because of previous neglect, Odin is currently undergoing blood work to diagnose an immune system problem. Even with his sad past, Odin is a good and loving boy. Odin needs a forever home where he can know what a true loving family really is.
Meet Luke! Luke is a 7-year-old male English Bulldog who is a very vocal boy that is looking for lots of love and attention. He also loves his toys and going on walks. But, he’ll also lounge lovingly near you so you can pet him nonstop. Luke will require a female household only, Luke is dog selective. Let’s meet!
Meet Scarlet! Scarlet has had a rough life so far. She was found neglected and chained up at a gas station. A good samaritan was able to rescue her after having to “buy” her from her previous owner. Scarlett is a great companion and would make a great addition to any family!
Jasper had a rough start to life and found himself on the euthanasia list at another shelter. Not only had he never known a loving home due to the abusive situation that he came out of, he was confused and afraid when everything he had ever known was taken away. We took Jasper in & a local trainer stepped up to work with him. Jasper even made friends with another adoptable dog of ours. He is still learning his manners and working to prepare himself for the new life that awaits him – he just needs to find the family that he so deserves. Jasper would like to find a home that consists of adults or teenagers and he would love a fenced-in yard where he can play.
Male, Cur mix, 1 year
Beautiful Bella is looking for a foster or better yet a forever home! Bella has been a student in the Pawsitive Direction Program – LARC 501c3 in Loxahatchee to work on training for the past few months. She will graduate soon fully obedience trained, AKC Canine Good Citizen (CGC) ready, and/or Bachelor’s/Master’s/PhD in Canine Life and Social Skills (CLASS) ready.
Bella is a 5 year old pit bull mix, with a beautiful tri-color coat and expressive eyes. Her new family should be ready for a house/kennel trained, wiggly medium-energy pup who promises endless love and devotion to her people. Since she does have a prey drive, she needs a home as the only pup with no small furry or feathered animals. She’s smart, focused and would be excellent at a sport or spending time on a lure course. Bella would do well with kids; she lived with a special needs little boy at one point and did amazing!
To fill out a foster or adoption application, contact Nicole (561) 723-8197 or send a message to one of the following facebook pages: Loxahatchee Animal Rescue Community, Inc. or Pawsitive Direction Program – LARC 501c3.
Blake is a 6 year old pit bull mix. He is currently residing in a foster home where he is thriving. Please ask about scheduling a time to meet him! Blake is in search of an adult home with a fenced-in yard where he can be the only pet.

If you didn’t know this guys past, you would think that he was the perfect dog! He is so calm and loving in my shop outside of the shelter that was a crazy environment for him.
He sits, stays, places, waits for his food and has learned to walk perfectly on a leash. The boxer in him means he likes multiple short walks where he has time to take in all the smells! We take 3 walks a day and it helps him with his energy level tremendously. He loves to ride in the car with the wind on his face, smelling the world as we drive by!
At my shop, nothing I do bothers him. He will come to see what I’m working on and offer assistance…lol….but if I dont need his help, he lies happily on his bed or puts himself in his crate for a nap! He adores his nylabone that his friend Alexis got him and just loves to sit with me while he happily chews away!
Throughout the day we have an affirmation sessions where I tell him “You are beautiful! You are worth life! You are smart and you are calm and kind. You will find a loving peaceful home after you have healed mind, body, and spirit. You are a great friend!”
Please keep him in your prayers. To return to the shelter would set him back so far! I have faith that some kind person will find him!!!
I’m Mimi, a 10 year old Boxer/Beagle mix. Yeah, I’m a senior girl, but I like to be on the move! I’ve got energy and love to run around as if I’m a young pup. Having time to exercise is important to me, whether it is through several daily walks or a fenced-in yard. Swimming is my absolute favorite activity! I know basic commands such as sit and stay. I’m also housebroken. I do need a very special person and that is probably why I’ve been waiting for so long. It takes me awhile to get used to people, and most people aren’t willing to wait. I hope that one day, someone will really try for me. If that person volunteered to spend time with me regularly, it would give me the time that I need to open up to them prior to going home. I would do best as the only pet in the home. I have potential, and I deserve to spend my golden years with a family to call my own.
I’m Sadie, a 10 year old lab/shepherd mix, let’s get to know each other. I’m an absolute doll once you get to know me. I am a goofy girl who will wiggle and wag at the sight of a leash; I LOVE walks! I’m not only beautiful, I’m smart too. I know my basic commands and will gladly give you my paw. I need a living situation that can be difficult to find. I would do best as the only pet in a home with one adult person. The reason is, once I find a person of my own, I can be very protective of that person. I promise to make up for it with endless love, loyalty and lots of kisses.
HANDSOME, SMART & ADOPTABLE…
Beautiful Dre could be your newest family member! This beautiful boy knows his basic commands and loves to play fetch! Dre dreams of having a fenced-in yard some day. He’s got a lot of pep in his step for an older guy but his energy isn’t overwhelming. Dre’s ideal home would be one where he can be with adults or older kids. Dre is good with cats and can be dog selective. Stop by the shelter to meet this sweet man!
Pit Bull, Male, 9 years
Are you single and ready to mingle? Active and love to have fun? Well, Jax is your man! This handsome boy bonds with one person and sticks to them, so he is in search of a home where he can have just one person all to himself. Jax is a 9 year old Australian Cattle Dog mix with tons of love to give. He is extremely smart, energetic and would love to have an active person who can give him stimulation and a job to do.
I’m Baba, an 8 year old pit bull mix. I’ve called the shelter home since I was a puppy. I’m a really sweet, playful boy who loves to give kisses, but I will need a special home. I will have to be the only pet in an adult home, with a fenced-in yard to call my own. I need a responsible, experienced handler that can keep me away from other animals. I get anxious outside of my room, so I need someone to work with me to help me feel comfortable.
I’m Ezra, a 3 year old shepherd mix. I was rescued from an awful situation, which causes me to be very untrusting and scared of people that I don’t know. I’m really hoping someone will come along and see the potential I have to be their best friend. I just need someone who is willing to be patient and get to know me. I need an experienced adult home, I am dog selective so if you have a dog already, we will have to meet first. I will need a fenced in yard.
