Stella is now ready for adoption! She is a four year old border collie mix. She’s great with kids and other dogs. She has not met a cat? She is a very adaptable girl. She loves everyone she meets! She’s a typical Velcro dog. By your side even off lead outside. She enjoys car rides also.
You may recognize Stella from one of our previous Facebook posts.
She came to us loaded with ticks. Removing all the ticks required four hours of labor and four people working on her. Her beautiful coat had to be removed for her to heal.
As you can see now, her coat is growing back! She feels much better. She is healthy and ready to find a forever home . Are you the one?

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.


  • 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.
