Adoptable Dogs

Peanut
Male, Terrier mix

Peanut’s mom Sunny, was a survivor of the meat trade in China and Peanut was born in our shelter there after Sunny was rescued. He was the only one to survive out of the litter and was born with birth defects in his front legs and his back leg was damaged during birth.

He gets along with everyone and other dogs.

Coco was saved from the Yulin Dog Meat Festival in China from June 2016. She is still a little shy, especially around men, but with each day she is getting more relaxed.

Size: approximately 10 pounds

Angel’s parents were rescued from the meat trade in China and she was born in our shelter there. Her best friend Napa is slowly showing Angel that people are nothing to worry about anymore. With each day she is becoming more trusting after watching others. After barking to let you know how tough she is, she will give you small kisses on your hand before running away.

Zeus
Male, Marbled British Shorthair
Age: approximately 1-2 years old

Zeus is one of the few cats available for adoption from the Animal Hope and Wellness Foundation, but might as well be considered one of the dogs.

He is content just be by your side or on your lap while taking his naps. Toys with bells are his favorite and he knows how to keep himself entertained while you are busy.

Posse was rescued from the South Korean meat trade. Like Copper, he developed a skin condition that will heal quite easily and does not discourage him whatsoever.

Venus
Female, mixed breed
Age: approximately 1-2 years old
Size: approximately 17 pounds

Venus was saved from the meat trade in Cambodia. When she first arrived five months ago, she was very shy and suffered from severe anxiety. Understandably, she felt threatened by other dogs and people and would shriek when she was stressed. A few people were able to break through her walls and she became very sweet with them, but her anxiety remained. She was put in a long-term training program and just returned to the rescue. She has greatly improved and is wonderful with people. She is no longer afraid of strangers and unlike before, she will gladly go on walks even with those she has never met. She loves to give kisses, receive belly rubs, and be held. Venus is eager for love and to give love back.

Spirit
Male, Basenji mix
Age: approximately 1 year old
Size: approximately 23 pounds

Spirit was rescued from a slaughterhouse in Cambodia. He experienced some of the worst of the meat trade. He was bound by wire while both of his front paws were cut off. This is not done cleanly and obviously leaves the animal in incredibly pain. From this slaughterhouse, Spirit was the only one to survive this torture. After surgery, Spirit is adjusting to his new situation very well and when the healing process is complete, he will be fitted for prosthetics. Spirit is still quite shy and fearful, but is learning to open up with each coming day. He is seeking a forever home that can give him plenty of love and care. Please consider aiding in his recovery by making him a member of your family.

Talia
Female, Basenji and Thai Ridgeback mix
Age: approximately 8 months old
Size: approximately 20 pounds

Talia was rescued from a slaughterhouse in Cambodia. Marc found her while slaughterers were tying her to a pole to be cooked alive. At such a young age, this traumatized her severely. After arriving at the rescue, she found solace in no one and feared what every stranger would do to her. Over the course of just over a week, the employees worked hard with her every day in attempt to earn her trust. In the beginning, she would snap and snarl at each approach, but slowly learned to trust. She now gives kisses, will jump in your lap, and allow you to hold her. She has been introduced to the other dogs from Cambodia and is faring quite well. She is still wary with strangers, but opens up much faster if you have the time to spend with her.

Indy
Male, mixed breed
Age: approximately 1 year old
Size: approximately 10 pounds

Indy was rescued at the end of March from the Gupo Meat Market, which is a dog meat slaughterhouse in South Korea. Marc found him in the back with only two other surviving cats, Dezi and Calypso, and brought them to safety. Indy loves people and does not seem to mind other cats or dogs, even when they are barking at him. He enjoys sitting on an open lap and playing with feathers dangled in front of his face. When he is really appreciative, he will give out some kisses and then ask for some scratches behind the ears.

Dezi
Male, mixed breed
Age: approximately 1 year old
Size: approximately 9 pounds

Dezi was saved from the South Korean meat trade. He was illegally kept in the back of a dog slaughterhouse, but was rescued along with Calypso and Indy.

He also does not mind be held or cuddled. Dezi gets along with both male and female cats, but seems a little unsure of dogs. He would be the perfect new family member for any cat lover.

Penny 
Female, mixed breed
Age: approximately 2-3 years old
Size: approximately 21 pounds

Penny was rescued from the Yulin Festival in China. She was sweet as soon as she emerged from her crate on her first day at the rescue.

She would love a home with active parents so she can do her favorite activity as much as she likes.
