Rocky

Attention everybody – Rocky is in the house (and hopefully one day, he will be in yours)! At just four years old – this Boxer mix has the smarts and the endearing personality that anyone would adore. Whether he’s playing with you and your active family in a fenced-in yard of his own, or curled up on the couch during your favorite tv show, Rocky is living proof that life is just better with four paws and a wagging tail around.
Rocky has spent half of his life with us, and while we love having a guy like him around, no dog should have to spend years without a family! Take a bit of time to get to know him, and you’ll be asking how he could be passed up for so long! Rocky needs to be the only pet in his home, so finding a family with an empty nest can be difficult. Please share Rocky and help us find the family he’s been waiting for!

Jax

 

imageimageAre 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.

Slugger

I’m Slugger – Handsome, charming and the goofiest of all the goof balls. I truly love to play and need to be on the move to be healthy, but my genetics left me with a bad back at a young age.

So what does this mean for me? I need a structured exercise routine and a calm home. I would do well with quiet older kids and senior/calmer dogs that will be my companions but not get me too excited, so I don’t hurt myself! I would love to go on walks with my family and indulge in restricted play in a fenced-in yard of my own. If you think you can give me the forever home that I’ve been dreaming of, consider adding me to your pack.

Male, Boxer mix, 3 years

Baba

IMG_9787

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.

Ezra

I’m Ezra, a 2 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. 

Shiloh

New_Dog_1

Shiloh is a handsome 9 year old poodle/chihuahua mix. He is just the right size and an absolute doll. He is very shy though, so anyone interested in this cutie must be willing to give him both time and patience. He is a great companion once he knows you. Consider stopping by the shelter to meet this sweetheart. 

 

Diesel

This happy guy is named Diesel. Diesel is a 9 year old Lab/American Bulldog mix. He loves to play and has a great disposition. Diesel needs lots of exercise so if you have a big fenced-in yard or love to go on walks Diesel may be the dog for you.

Jeffrey

Jeffrey2

I’m Jeffrey, a 5 year old curr mix! I came to the shelter as a stray, I was found wandering in the rain. I’m a quiet & calm boy, but I am nervous so I need someone who understands that. I am looking for a quiet adult home, as the only pet, and will need a fenced-in yard. I get nervous with a lot of people around, but I promise to be a loyal companion to my future adopter. 

Princess

 

Princess2

I’m Princess, a sweet 12 year old shepherd/rottweiler mix. I lost my home when my owner’s house was foreclosed on, and they could no longer care for me. I’ve been waiting here at the shelter for my forever family for several years. I need a home with adults or older children and without cats. I will need to meet your dog first if you have one. I’m shy and any potential adopters should know that I will require a little patience, but it will be very rewarding for both of us if you give me a chance.

PRINCESS1

 

Browny

imageimg_5407

Hey there, I’m Browny, a 6 year old hound mix! I can be a little shy at first. I’m the most handsome boy, and I love to carry my toys around with me. I need an experienced adult home with no other pets; I want you all to myself! I’ll also need a fenced-in yard to run around and be a goof ball in. Come in to meet me, I’ll sit and give my paw to you.

Briggs

Hey, Briggs here. I’m a 2 1/2 year old curr/hound mix. I’m a handsome guy who you’re sure to love once you get to know me. The shelter says that I could use some basic training, which is totally fine with me, I’ll do whatever it takes to find my forever family. I’m in search of an active adult home as the only pet. I’ll also need a fenced-in yard where I can run and play with you.

 

Rex

Rex

Hey, I’m Rex, a 4 year old german shepherd. I can be a little people selective. But those who have gotten to know me call me a sweet guy. I have some medical issues that make it hard for me to be adopted, the staff can tell you more about that. I need an experienced handler in an adult home as the only pet. I promise to be loyal to my owner.

 

Tater

Teddy bear alert! I’m Tater, a senior guy looking for someone to spend my golden years with. I’m a 13 year old chow chow. I was adopted 11 years ago, but my owner became ill and sadly we had to part ways. I need a quiet adult home where I can be the only pet, and your sole focus. I love going on walks and I really hope I can find a patient and experienced person to retire with.

Jeremiah

Jeremiah will doggy paddle his way into your heart! Actually, a cannon ball is more like his style.

Going on walks with our volunteers is one of his favorite pastimes, but swimming is definitely Jeremiah’s preferred method of travel. ‍He has been searching for a forever home since he was abandoned at our front door in the middle of the night, about three years ago. This handsome five year old boy’s energy and personality wins hearts, but the fact that he would like to be the only pet in his future home has made it difficult for us to find him a family that is a good fit. This guy would love to be on the move, so a home with a fenced-in yard would be the place of his dreams. Consider being the one to finally make all of his dreams come true, stop by to meet Jeremiah!

Luke

Hey, Luke here. I’m a sweet guy looking for my forever home. I’m a 3 year old Lab/Blue heeler mix. I’m good with other dogs and need an adult home. My sister, Leah, is up for adoption too; it would be pretty cool if we could go to a home together, but if you only have room for one that’s okay too. 

Rudy

_DSC0503

Rudy is a 4 year old male chihuahua. He came in from a hoarding situation and is nervous but once he gets to know you he can be a great dog. Because of his nervousness, he would do best in a home with adults or older children only. He just needs someone to give him a little time, patience and understanding.

Lola

The names Lola. I’m a 9 year old Rottweiler/Boxer mix, so you could say I’ve got a few years of experience in the fine art of friendship. I’m a lively & playful senior girl who would make the perfect companion for a lucky family out there! I would do well in a home with adults or older children, and I even get along with other dogs & cats. Not only am I extremely sweet, I’m smart too. I’ve got my basic commands down and if you wanted to throw me a few treats, I’d be eager to learn more. Every dog deserves to spend their golden years in a loving home, and I’ll be waiting for my people to find me!

Sammi

Sammi is a 4 year old female chihuahua. She came from a 200+ dog hoarding situation, so she had very little human contact before coming to the shelter. She would love a patient adult-only home, maybe even with a dog brother/sister. She just needs time and understanding so she can learn that humans are good.

Yin

Yin is a 7 year old Lab/American Bulldog mix who has called the shelter her home for many years, but she is hopeful that some day her special person will find her. She would like to be someone’s one and only baby, so she is in search of a home without other pets. Yin is very playful and desires a fenced-in yard to call her own. She prefers men over women. This beautiful girl truly has the potential to be an incredible companion.

Mya

 

user_photo-55297b71018a3

Mya was found as a stray in the summer of 2014, and brought to Dogs & Cats Forever No-Kill Shelter in Fort Pierce, FL. She had mange and was put on several medications by a veterinarian, but sadly, she had an allergic reaction to her medications,and developed an autoimmune response to her meds. She has been to specialists in Stuart, West Palm Beach, and Gainesville, at the University of Florida. She is slowly getting better but has run up more than $5,000.00 in vet bills and medication costs. Her vets say that it could take more than a year for her to recover fully. Mya is only a year old and has a wonderful personality despite being in and out of clinics and given medicine almost nonstop.
Mya needs veterinary care for many months to come, and while Dogs & Cats Forever is currently responsible for her care, we are a private animal shelter which receives no financial assistance from local government, and we need help to pay her bills. Please help Mya get better so she can one day find a forever home.
