Prissy

Prissy is such a sweet and extremely shy girl. She is 7 yrs old and 18lbs. Prissy came from a home situation where she never felt human touch and love. She is still very shy and slow to warm up. She is always smiling and very playful with the other dogs. Prissy will require a fenced-in yard and is not able to walk on a leash at this time and not able to be touched until you earn her trust. With time, love and a lot of patience, she will be a sweet family member.

Billie

Hi, I'm Billie! I'm 12 years old but still have a lot of life to live. I absolutely love playing with tennis balls, and being loved on by my person. I would probably do best with adults and children over 6 years old; I'm an old soul. I've lived with cats before and would need to meet any dogs I'd be living with, but I hope you give me a chance to be your new best friend! Thanks to a generous donor, Billie's adoption includes a custom care package from Chewy.com valued at $200! The care package will include items that are suited to Billie's special needs to help her get set up for success in their new home! Ask staff to meet me or contact dogs@bwar.org

Celeste

Meet Celeste! This adorable little Manx lady came to us as a stray and she has been an absolute lover from day one! Despite having a few problems medically when she first got here she has always been down for love and is a nonstop purr machine. She is currently in a foster home where she is living well with multiple other cats and medium sized dogs. She tolerates other critters, but what she really wants is the love of a human. She likes laps and is fine with being held as long as you are petting her. She does have daily meds to be mixed in with her food, but she eats it well. Contact med-intake if you are interested in this wonderful girl!

Molly

I'm Molly. I used to stay outside where I could come and go as I please. But I started having vision loss due to high blood pressure, so now I am an indoor-only love bug. I know I can never be an outside cat again...my vision just makes it too dangerous. But if I can find someone willing to love me, give me my meds and let me finally live a "cozy" life, I'll take it! And good news…FUR will pay for my medications for the rest of my life!

Skipper

Hi I'm Skipper! And I'm cold! Gosh you'd be cold too if all you had on were your socks!! My fur was so matted when I got to AHS that they had to shave it off so it could grow in nicely again. But BRRRRRRR!!!!! Anyway, I love warm spots! My favorite spot was in this kitty igloo, with a heating pad underneath me. No wait, my favorite spot was on my foster person's lap and then they would cover me with a fleece blankie. No, wait, my favorite spot was under the covers in the bed! I'm a great snuggler at night and won't bother you at all. Ok, ok. Whatever is WARM. THAT is my favorite spot. I just want to stay warm until I get my coat back. My foster people told me that I am a sweet cat. I like to follow you around, waiting for you to sit down so I can get some lap time! From the foster people: Skipper is a really sweet guy. He was a perfect houseguest, he used the litter box and never had accidents, he never clawed the furniture. He was starting to play a little bit with toys when he started feeling better. He is not startled by loud noises (vacuum, barking dog didn't phase him) and he tolerates a dog if the dog respects his personal space. He likes to rub his nose on your nose or face, and is a lovely companion. Please consider giving this sweet older guy a warm spot in your home.

Could you be the one to earn her trust forever? This cute cat is available through Brother Wolf Animal Rescue. Please contact dogs@bwar.org for more information.

Rowdy

What a face! Rowdy is 11 years old, and is looking for his second chance at a family. This little old man is not a fan of childish shenanigans, and would prefer to live in a home with adult humans only, please. He is shy when meeting new people, but once he knows you, he is comfortable coexisting with you. Rowdy would love to have an owner who understands the meaning of "personal space," as he is not fond of being squished like a teddy bear! Rowdy prefers to hang out in the same area as his people while maintaining his independence. If Rowdy sounds like a good fit for you, come meet him! He's ready to chill out with his new person! *Observed behavior does not guarantee future behavior.

Chewy

Chewy, an Anatolian Shepherd mix, came to us with his sister after they were found wondering down a back road and the owner did not want them back, they wanted them euthanized and they did not even know they had been missing for 3 days. Both dogs came to us filthy with fleas and they were way too thin. Both were heartworm positive. They went through their treatment together and sadly due to complications, Chewy lost his sister and it really rocked his world as he depended on her for everything, she was the leader. It has taken some time for him to build his confidence. He does get along with other dogs but really just ignores them. He is estimated to be 8 years old and weighs 30 pounds. He is a love bug and loves loves loves to have his belly rubbed. His one front leg is crooked as it was broken and his previous owners never did anything about it so it healed crooked. He honestly had a rough life before coming to the rescue and lived outside his entire life. He is housebroken and crate trained now. He just needs a home where he can be reassured sometimes and a home where he can live out his days being loved. He will make an excellent companion for some lucky person or family. He is neutered, up to date on vaccines, de-wormed, current on heartworm prevention and is heartworm negative after his treatment and he is microchipped. His adoption fee is $250.00. If you are interested in Chewy please go to our website www.boxerbuttsandothermutts.org and fill out one of our adoption applications. We do require a home visit and vet references. Chewy deserves to live out his golden years with a family to call his own.
