Hi, my name is Mariah. I’m a sweet little girl that was saved from horrible conditions and complete neglect. My start has been rough so far. My teeth were so bad that I had to have a full mouth extraction, I had double ear infections and my nails were so long they were curling under. The vet thinks I have lost most of my vision in my eyes due to having KCS (dry eye) that was untreated for so long. So I need eye meds twice a day in both of my eyes. Since my foster family has had me, I have learned to love life. I just love being petted and loved on. I follow my foster moms claps so I know which way to go. Potty training is very hard still for me, but I’m using potty pads. I eat really well and get along with dogs and kids. I’m looking for a home to love me forever.

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.


  • Puppy and Adult dog adoption fees are variable.
