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!!!
Dogs & Cats Forever Inc. strives to end animal abuse and neglect. Our shelter is not connected to any other animal society. It’s a non-profit, 501, tax exempt project and is totally dependent on donations and endowments. Within the last 3 months we have had young pregnant dogs dumped/abandoned at our shelter that had required emergency c-sections. We were able to save a couple of puppies, but others have died and caused uterus infections in some of the mama dogs. This is not to mention other dogs/cats that have been dropped off with severe skin infections and other medical issues. “Mercy” who just came in yesterday with a dead puppy sticking out of her, is just one example of what our shelter is doing. Due to COVID 19 and lack of donations we are struggling with excessive vet cost. Mercy’s vet bill alone will be between $1700-$2100 (receipt can be provided). We are committed to be a “NO-KILL” shelter and do our best in caring for all the animals in the shelter. Without your continued support our shelter may not be able to help these animals with these extreme medical cost.
If possible, we are accepting donations through our website using PayPal, or you can go to the shelter, located at 4600 Selvitz Road, Fort Pierce, Fl. 34981 and/or call 772-489-5844 to make a cash and/or credit donation. No amount is too small. Thank you in advance for any assistance you can provide.
