I was arrested! Well, I wasn’t in trouble but my owners were!
They would let me out to wander the neighborhood, day and night, even in extreme weather conditions. No shelter, no food or water, no warm place in the blizzards either! I almost got hit by a car too! The children I lived with used to throw balls( hard) and hit me in the face! They would tower over me, then hug me so hard they hurt me! I spent a lot of time on a short leash tied to a tree or when I was inside, I was in-prisoned in a crate.
But now I’m a HELP dog! I’m in training to desensitize me and build my confidence. I’m so lacking from attention that I want my people to touch me continuously, never stop. Is that so bad?
I would be happy with another mellow dog. I’m three years old and I haven’t had a very happy life so far. I’m excited that maybe my time has come? Maybe I can have people of my own to love me? I need someone patient to work with me too. Won’t you please give me a chance? Love, Raj!

Adoption Policy:

  • Complete an adoption application and submit it. You will receive an onscreen confirmation we received it.
  • Once your application is initially reviewed, we then contact your veterinarian and references. After that, a H.E.L.P. volunteer will contact you. Please be patient, this does take some time especially over a weekend. Please allow 24-72 hours for us to make contact with you.
  • All members of the family must be present in order to adopt. We want to make sure it's a good fit for everyone!
  • Because this is a life time commitment, once you meet the foster dog, there is a 24 hour waiting period for you to make sure that the fit is right for everyone. So many people see a cute face and want to take them home right away without really thinking about it. The waiting period also allows you to get supplies ready for your new one.
  • We do not ship dogs within or out of the state.

Fees:

  • Puppies 12 months and younger are $300.
  • Adult Dogs over 12 months and younger than 7 years old are $250.
  • Senior Dogs over 7 years are $200.
