Meet Forrest! Forrest is estimated to be roughly 1-2 years old and is approximately 60 lbs. He is suspected of having a congenital disease, Cerebellar hypoplasia. He would be best described as special needs. He has extremely large front paws and is known to crash into things, run not walk and fall. Oh Forrest. This sweet boy has stolen our hearts. Forrest came to us in early February after being bounced around the shelter system in Rhode Island. He had originally been found as a stray in Providence November of 2018. Forrest is VERY dog friendly. He attends day care routinely and has gained fuller functioning of his motor skills since entering the rescue several months ago. Forrest would do best in a home with another dog, preferably a dog that would be up for the challenge of being his friend. Sadly he is not suitable to live with children or cats. Forrest is neutered, up to date on vaccines, house trained and crate trained. If you are interested in meeting and potentially adopting Forrest please fill out an application.

Meet Mama! Our longest resident! Mama is a former stray/semi feral cat that we have known for roughly 8 years!! She was a former colony cat at one of our feeding stations in Dorchester where we fed daily. Mama is called Mama because when we first came across her she had a tiny black kitten that followed her everywhere she went. Her kitten was taken in by the Animal Rescue League of Boston back in 2012 and found a home then. In April of 2017 we realized Mama was drastically losing weight, despite having a ravenous appetite. We took her in and sure enough she is diabetic. Since then her diabetes has been regulated and she is on insulin injections twice daily. She has adjusted to life indoors well but doesn't enjoy the company of dogs and most cats. She is spayed, microchipped, vaccinated felv/fiv negative and estimated to be roughly 8-9 years old, a young senior. Mama has been in our rescue for over 2 YEARS and has made tremendous strides. She allows a lot of handling which is required to give her insulin injections twice daily. She would still prefer to be an only pet but has shared her space successfully in the past with a calm foster cat. If you are interested in adopting Mama please fill out an application.

Meet Archie! Archie is a 11-month-old 90 lb great Pyrenees mix who is playful, goofy and dog friendly! Archie requires a home with a canine companion, or better yet two! Preferably a large young female who enjoys rough housing! Archie is a big boy and he's not done growing! He requires a fenced-in yard which would appropriately house his rough housing, running and wrestling. He attends daycare here routinely! Archie requires breed experience and the understanding that as an adolescent his body is not the only thing growing! So is his personality and confidence which need support through consistent training. Archie would do best with a family that is active preferably disciplined and experienced with guard/guardian breeds to avoid the development of resource guarding. In his month with us he has growled twice, once over sharing a water dish with a dog and once at a stranger. If Archie is not exercised he can become anxious when crated and left for long periods of time. If given too much too soon he can become territorial- this should not be a foreign concept to those familiar with the breed. He is cat approved/ cat tolerant. Due to his size and clumsiness we would say no small children. If you are interested in meeting and potentially adopting Archie please fill out an application.

Meet Brownie! Brownie is a 9-10 year old Yorkie who is one of the sweetest, most deserving little fellas we have ever had the pleasure of caring for. You can't help but instantly fall in love with him. Brownie is currently being fostered in Holland Ma with two large dogs. He has lived with several small dogs previously. He is certainly suitable to live with children. Brownie is scheduled to be neutered in October. He does mark in the house but wearing a belly band or diaper helps avoid accidents/marking. Once settled in a home his leg lifting is few and far between. From where we sit most older small dogs will pee in the house, so if this is a deal breaker please do not apply for Brownie. Brownie does have some vision issues and appears to be partially blind in one eye that has cataracts. If you are interested in meeting and potentially adopting Brownie please fill out an application.

Dog • Bully Breed Mix • Adult • Female • Medium
Meet Coco! Coco came by the rescue today and we were so pleased to see her comfort here and her confidence growing! She will begin daycare here two days a week. Coco was spayed and microchipped last month and is now available for adoption. She is a petite bully breed mix (45 lbs) who is estimated to be roughly a year old. Coco would benefit from a bully breed experienced/savvy adopter/family. One that will continue to work on her manners and obedience and building her confidence. Coco has a clear understanding of basic obedience but will often avoid follow through by soliciting affection. Coco loves car rides and of course she loves being called a pretty girl. Coco is house trained, crate trained, up to date on vaccines, spayed and microchipped. She is insecure and spooks easy so her ideal home would be one without small children. Unfortunately she did not cat test well here last weekend and was too fixated on the cat for us to comfortably place her on a home with a cat or cats. If you are interested in meeting and potentially adopting Coco please fill out an application.
