This poor gal has been so stressed out she ended up with Demotectic Mange. It's not contagious and is totally treatable. Luckily we have amazing fosters and she is now in a foster home (with another dog) and will be given medicated baths to help her heal. As uncomfortable as Aloe is because of the mange she has not stopped wagging her tail and giving hugs since she got here! She has a beautiful spirit and deserves a home that will give her all the love she so deserves!
Your new pet will require a refresher in house-training. K-9 Lifesavers strongly recommends all new adopters enroll their new pet into obedience training. This provides for an easier transition into a new home, ensures the dog remains well socialized, and helps form a bond between the dog and the new family.
Adoption fees cover basic vetting, spay/neuter surgery (for dogs over 6 months old), rabies, distemper/parvo vaccinations, treatment for worms, heartworm testing, monthly heartworm prevention and monthly flea/tick prevention (while the animal is in our care), and transport costs from high-kill shelter. Please note that on average, K-9 Lifesavers spend significantly more on each dog than their adoption fee. Adoption fee for HW positive dog also covers heartworm treatment at our partner vets.
Foster Program: Foster homes provide for the temporary care of a rescue until the dog is placed into a loving, forever home.
