Adopt Santo

Paws 4 Thought Animal Rescue
Arizona
Contact: realestateflagstaff@gmail.com or 928-607-9610

It’s impossible to meet Santo and not feel overwhelming admiration and hope. Hit by a car on the streets of Mexico, Santo eventually had both hind legs amputated. But what was lost physically he regenerated in spirit many times over. Gentle and happy, this beautiful pup adores people and gets along well with other dogs. He is truly a special soul. Check out video of amazing Santo.

Adopt Marco

Charlottesville-Albemarle SPCA
Charlottesville, Virginia
Contact: ccarpenter@caspca.org or 434-973-5959 ext. 203

Sure, he’s incredibly handsome and a ton of fun, but Marco has a tender side as wide as his smile. After rough beginnings, Marco is ready for a loving home, especially if it promises tennis balls aplenty and snuggles galore. He prefers to take it slow with strangers, but once he decides he likes you, Marco is the ultimate in sweetness and loyalty. Check out video of magnificent Marco.

Adopt Danali

Austin Pets Alive
Austin, Texas
Contact: faith.wright@austinpetsalive.org or 512-791-3753

They call her Danali, but independence is her middle name. Pretty incredible considering she’s just a pup and gets around superbly without the use of her hind legs (there’s a BB bullet lodged in her spine). If life has its challenges, Danali doesn’t let on. She’s thrilled to show you all she can do, including making friends with nearly everyone she meets.

Adopt Starfish

Austin Pets Alive
Austin, Texas
Contact: faith.wright@austinpetsalive.org or 512-791-3753

She’s absolutely irresistible, proving day after day that she’s stronger than any condition fate can hand her. Starfish has swimmer’s syndrome, a birth defect preventing her legs from developing normally. An inspiration to all who know her, this plucky puppy comes with her own wheelchair, unlimited kisses, and a genuine desire to live life joyfully and on her terms.

Adopt Chevy

S.A.I.N.T.
Bullhead City, Arizona
Contact: Donna Doyel at savinglivesbhc@gmail.com

No one would fault him if he wasn’t particularly fond of people, but playful Chevy seems to adore humans — especially those who are generous with the belly rubs. Chevy has faced some tough circumstances in his short life so he’s hoping for a home where he will know unconditional adoration and safety. Perhaps your place?
