Dogs Available for Adoption

DOGS IN NEED OF HOMES

Although the Mosby Foundation is not a rescue group in that we do not take and care for dogs ourselves, we do offer any assistance possible to promote communication and advertise dogs in need of placement. The following dogs are located in many different areas. Contact info. is given with each dog.  Please contact them directly. Thanks and please give these dogs a second chance!

Hello friends.  Our shelter is trying to help a family rehome these two little Chihuahuas (together).  Read their sad story below.  Neither of them have been spayed and their vet says they are now too old to spay.  If you know of anyone who could take these two sweet girls immediately, please contact their good friend, Wendy atwendy0405@verizon.net .  Cocoa and Angel seem like really GREAT little dogs!  Thank you for considering them.  PLEASE PASS THIS E-MAIL ON TO YOUR DOG LOVING FRIENDS!   Flower

JAN 19, 2016:

Cocoa is a 12 year old un-spayed female Chihuahua, who will shortly be up-to-date on her shots.  Cocoa and her best friend Angel (also a 10 year old female Chihuahua) are both needing a home after their owner passed away.  Angel and Cocoa have always lived together so must be adopted together as they are a bonded pair. They are both very sweet and docile.   They are housebroken by using training pads, so they are reliably able to be loose in the house, and never destructive. 

They are temporarily living in foster care.  This is what their foster mom had to say about them…”So far at my house, they are great with my 3 year old son… very good with all other animals, my cats and my rabbit and also good with the neighborhood doggies they meet…. They like to bark a lot, and they like to bark at my cats, but just bark, they don’t chase or anything…. they don’t bite, very sweet girls, they go outside to potty but they are very accustomed to using their puppy pads in between outside trips.  I also know from being around my mother-in-laws, sweet chis are so lovable with people and love to snuggle.

They currently live in the Richmond VA area, and are available for immediate adoption. The remaining family members have Malamutes, and are saddened they are not able to bring Angel and Cocoa home with them. Please contact Wendy, <wendy0405@verizon.net> for more information on adopting these two sweeties.

COURTESY POSTINGS…As a community service, Nelson County Humane Society/SPCA provides courtesy postings in an effort to help unite animals needing permanent homes with prospective adopters.  Since we are a no-kill shelter and funded entirely by donations and fundraisers, to exist we are always in need of donations.  We respectfully request that adopters of courtesy posting animals consider a tax deductible contribution to our shelter via the “Donation Info” page on our website:  http://nelsonspca.org/
