Name: Zeus
Age:    3 years
Breed: Husky, 60 pounds 
Sex:  Male (neutered)
Location:  Los Angeles County, CA

Zeus is with Apex Protection Project
Please contact them at  for additional information. Transport may be available.

 Vet Info:  While Apex Protection Project is a wolfdog rescue, please know that Zeus is a Husky and not a wolfdog.  Zeus is current with vaccinations, but he has not been heartworm tested.  He is neutered.  When he originally came to the rescue, Zeus was quite sick, but after being at the vet's office where he is boarding, Zeus is now in good overall health.   Zeus tested positive for canine herpes virus (CHV).  This could be the cause of his blindness.  For more information, one resource is:
Dog Info:   Zeus's rescue contact tells us, "This guy is the sweetest, most loving boy who just wants to cuddle and hang out with people.. He has never been skittish or reactive to other dogs or noise; he is a very chill guy.  When I've spent time with him he is nothing but love. According to the vet's office where he is boarding, he loves everyone, not dog reactive, and sweet." 
Zeus is staying at his vet's office in boarding while his rescue works to find placement for him.   He's been there since March when they pulled him from a shelter, saving his life.  Zeus is an indoor dog confined to one area of the office.  He is housebroken and leash trained.  Zeus is an outgoing boy who is good with men and women.  He has no bite history.  Zeus has adapted well to his new situation and surroundings at the vet's office despite being blind.  He does very well there and on a leash. 


Name: Sammy
Age:    Adult
Breed: Maltese/Poodle Mix 
Sex:  Male
Location:  Miami, FL

From owner's post at:
This is a LONG STORY & not quite sure where to begin. I won't be able to give you all the details here because I am limited to the amount of words that I can put here but if you read everything ' & you think that you might fit the bill after reading what's written here, when we speak, I would love to tell you the story as to how this transpired. I've been doing independent rescue in Miami for over 30 years and although I love every single dog, once in a while one comes along that is a little bit more difficult to have to let go and pulls more at my heart strings. Little Sammy is that one. It's going to be very hard for me to let him go, but I know it's in his best interest, if I happen to find the right match. 

In 2017 I took the first step and said, "My name is Heather and I have a problem.  It's not drugs or alcohol. It is saving dogs. I made a decision that I could not save every dog, although I could try to one at a time. I would not take any more dogs home and I kept my promise, up until now.  In 2021 I was diagnosed with cancer. I am currently on treatment. 

For now let me tell you a couple of things that you should know about this little boy and also let me tell you about a couple of things that I'm going to require if you want to consider him . HE IS GOING TO HAVE TO HAVE ONE EYE REMOVED THE FIRST WEEK OF MAY AND I'M TRYING TO SAVE HIS VISION ON HIS RIGHT EYE. SOMEONE SERIOUSLY NEGLECTED THIS BABY. So please have experience with a blind dog because, there is a good chance he might not have any vision at all. Please have a very strong vet reference stating this. I am only going to adopt him to somebody that I know is emotionally, financially, and physically capable of giving him the love and care he needs. Now I am here to make sure he spends the rest of his years loved and cared for with quality and compassion. I'm not sure of his age since his eyes were so neglected, its hard for the vet to pinpoint. Not sure of his breed either.  I always say 'rescue' is my FAVORITE breed. He would be a great companion to a retired human or couple who just want to love and be loved and have the knowledge, patience, and understanding of his needs. Please don't call to adopt him if you are on a fixed income as little Sammy will need good care and no sacrifices. He is currently living with me, and I am not going to demote him, only promote him. The great news is that he is house trained!! He is good about doing his business outside and another positive even though a male, he does NOT lift his leg. He squats! Short, multiple outings would be best. He does not use pee pee pads, and he is ok in a crate. Although I don't want him to LIVE in a crate, it's best he sleeps in it and is in it when you're not home - for his protection and security. He is still energetic, very loving, and seems to be happy. He needs and craves tons of love. Probably not best for children, due to being blind. He is very loving, loves to be loved. He is also fine with dogs and cats but probably not best to have him in a home with them, since he tends to bump into them, it can be quite agitating to another animal. He must be crated when in a vehicle. He must be taken to the water bowl several times a day, since he can't find it on his own. I really want to keep him but with my diagnosis and other pets in the home, I want to give him the opportunity to find love and not hold him back. My promise to Sammy is to make sure I find him the best forever home as long as that might take me, with one who will love him for the remainder of his life and continue to let me know how wonderful he is doing and allow me to be a part of his journey. He is a well behaved, sweet, dog. He just can't see and needs a lot of guidance, patience and plenty of love and TLC. Sammy will be your best friend. Will you be his? I am looking to find the perfect person/couple that will give him as much as I am, if not more, for the rest of his life. HE IS THE FRIEND YOU ARE LOOKING FOR AND WILL LOVE YOU FOREVER. WILL YOU LOVE HIM? All shots are up to date & he will be adopted with any/all medical records from ophthalmologist and all that has been done for this little guy. He will come to you neutered, microchipped (AND MICROCHIP WILL REMAIN IN MY NAME INDEFINITELY), heartworm negative, on heartworm & flea/tick prevention.  If you adopt him you MUST keep him on both, and up to date with yearly check ups & vaccines, to include visits to ophthalmologist.  A phone interview, home check, vet ref & rehoming fee of $400 will be required to adopt little Sammy. PLEASE DON'T EMAIL. PLEASE CALL Heather 954-534-5606 w/any questions/interest. I HAVE OTHER PHOTOS TO SENDYOU AS WELL ONCE WE CONNECT AND WOULD ENCOURAGE YOU TO MEET HIM W/ME IN PERSON..THANK U SO MUCH FOR YOUR INTEREST IN SAMMY

RESCUE INFORMATION: Hi I'm Jake! I’m a 6 year old Russian Spaniel who gets along great with people and other dogs!Here’s the sad part:I lost my home and my job because I lost my sight and got fat. I ended up in the shelter and got sick. (I lost 10 lbs... of the 45 i need to loose.) My eyes hurt a lot!Here’s the happy part:Red Hook Dog Rescue took me out of the shelter and to doctors. AMC to the Rescue gave them a grant for my eye surgery. We are so grateful!But the grant isn't covering everything and we need to raise about $2,300 more ($1,700 for the surgery, and the rest for healthy food). Please donate to Red Hook Dog Rescue’s fundraiser for me! They also accept Paypal, Venmo and Zelle (message them for details).My goals for 2023 are:Stop the pain in my eyes. Lose weight. And find a permanent home! I have a wonderful foster right now but i will need a forever home once I’m healed from my surgery. Maybe we can get fit together?


Name: Bear
Age:    4-6 years
Breed: Labrador Retriever mix, severely underweight but should be a medium dog of about 50# 
Sex:  Male, not neutered
Location:  Davidson County, Tennessee

For a video of Bear, please visit: is with Huckaby's Hope for Paws Rescue:  and

If you are interested in Bear, please contact them as noted above!

VET INFORMATION: Bear is severely emaciated.  He is not neutered or microchipped.  He will require a dental exam and cleaning with possible extraction of teeth.  His front teeth are either worn or missing, but his back teeth look good.  Bear is blind but is being treated for dry eye.  His rescue is working with his veterinarian to see if they can resolve this condition and restore his sight.  Bear recently had blood work done, and it came back good, we are told by his rescue.  We have learned that Bear is heartworm positive and has worms and parasites.  He has begun treatment to rid him of the worms and parasites and to clear the heartworms.  Bear is also continuing his steroid and antibiotic eye ointment.  If Bear has gained enough weight by mid-April, he will be neutered then.

RESCUE INFORMATION: Bear is with Huckaby's Hope For Paws Rescue. They brought him into rescue on 3/19/23 in Alabama and shortly thereafter moved him to a foster home in Tennessee where he will receive the TLC he needs to start the journey back to being a healthy dog. Despite his physical condition, Bear is a friendly boy who wants to be loved. He's been a docile and gentle dog. His foster parent says that he is precious and perfect with a coat that is soft as rabbit fur that hasn't been shedding! Bear's confidence is growing daily, and he's living with eight other dogs in his foster home, getting along with everyone. His foster says he's been amazing. Bear's also been around young puppies with no issue, and his foster guesses that he would be the same with cats, especially with dog-savvy cats. Bear has learned to use the doggie door in the house and is adapting well after a decompression period.


Name:  Charlie
Age:  Adult
Breed: Terrier mix
Size: Medium, 30 lbs.
Sex:  Male 
Location:  Roseville, CA

CHARACTERISTICS: Friendly, Loyal, Gentle, Smart, Couch potato, Affectionate, Playful
HEALTH: Vaccinations up to date, spayed / neutered, special needs.
GOOD IN A HOME WITH: Other dogs, cats, children, other animals. Birds.

My name is Charlie and this is my story…I am blind most likely from injuries. I was found starved and tied to a pole unresponsive. They first thought I was dead when they found me.  I can’t remember how long I was tied there with no food or water. I gave up.. laid down.. and started to let the life leave my body..
I was found by a nice animal control officer with the Front Street Animal Shelter - City of Sacramento and taken in to the shelter to save my life. I was so scared in the shelter with all the noises and me bumping into things. But one day a nice lady volunteer came to my kennel and just cried looking at me. She knew she had to get me out of there. She took several videos showing people what my life would be like if I was left in the shelter (bumping into things, shaking, scared, all alone and sad).  
She found me two wonderful fosters who took good care of me. My foster moms say I am quite the character and I don’t let my blindness from stopping me explore. I live in a house with other dogs (I like dogs that give me my space and I give them theirs because I can’t see and don’t know if they will try and hurt me). One of my foster moms had a cat and 5 kids too. I loved playing with the kids and snuggling with them. I loved being held like a baby and being told how much they love me.
I have no problem finding my way to the couch and getting cozy!  I am house trained but needs outside time often. I will find my way into a crate if provided a smaller room or pen area in which to move about, but I don't like the crate to be closed (it scares me that I will be confined and left for dead again, but if you leave the door open I will hang in there happily). I am a big love!!

I am fostered in the Sacramento area.  Charlie is with Martina Animal Rescue in Roseville CA.  Please email
 or call (510) 390-4330 if you're interested in Charlie.  Thank you.

Lou is a special needs dog:
He  was hit by a car and now has limited vision.  He walks confidently outside on leash, and can navigate a room comfortably.  His nose is his primary sense.  He is also guided by our voices.  As Lou's vision is new to him, he can be unsure of other dogs.  He may work best as an only dog, but when introduced properly, we might find that he enjoys company.  Older children only since he can startle at anything unexpected.

Breed: English Bulldog/Boxer mix
Age: estimated 1+ years
Size: Medium under 50 pounds

CHARACTERISTICSFriendly, Affectionate, Smart, Loves kisses
HEALTH: Vaccinations up to date, spayed / neutered.

Say hello to sweet Finn. He’s a little over 1 year old, he is a bulldog mix. Finn is a special needs boy as he has no sight in one eye and limited vision in the other. Finn was surrendered to a PA rescue because his owner found herself without a home & was unable to treat his medical issues. Finn’s vision issue was caused by either trauma or an infection, we don’t know.
Finn needs to be an only dog, no exceptions but he LOVES cats! He is very food motivated and an extremely quick learner. He would do best in a quiet home where there are few or no stairs and a fenced in yard is a huge plus! No small children as due to his vision, he may frighten easily. Finn is housetrained and loves car rides. He also loves to sleep on a nice, comfortable couch next to you. He has no other health issues. Finn is not a barker and he’s a small guy, weighing under 50 lbs.
Finn has had a rough start in life, he deserves a home where he is spoiled and loved. Can you be the home for him – let’s make this coming summer the best for sweet Finn!
Finn is being fostered in Camp Hill, PA. Please be sure you have an application on file before you contact us and include a phone number in any correspondence.

Snow White

Snow White

Adorable Snow White is with Main Line Shelter in Chester Springs, PA.
For a video of Snow White, please visit:

3/22 Update:  Snow White is having a hard time in the Shelter and is in need of rescue or adoption.  Please continue to share her information.  Please note her updated location:  Adorable Snow White is at PSPCA's Philadelphia Headquarters in PA.  Contact information is at the end of the email.

From Snow White's Shelter:  Snow White - URGENT
A beautiful and sweet 8 month old Shepherd/Lab mix who came into our care after being reportedly hit by a car.  She was transported to VSEC immediately for stabilization, and has now returned to our hospital.  She is a really lovely lady!  Snow received X-Rays and is believed to have a tibial tuberosity avulsion.  Most notably, however, she is mentally inappropriate, is wobbly on her feet, and circles.  Our vet believes that she may have an injury to her lower spine and would require a further workup to determine how to proceed with treatment.  She is able to walk currently and is eating (very food motivated!), urinating, and defecating normally.   We have her on  Buprenorphine, Carprofen, Gabapentin, and short-controlled walks at this time.  She is a bit wobbly with food, so we are hand-feeding her and offering water every few hours. She is a real doll who deserves her best chance!
Snow White is blind.  Snow White’s caretaker tells us, “I do think she can probably see shadows, and she walks better outdoors, so maybe it's possible that she sees better in bright lights.  She's really shaky/wobbly so it's honestly hard to say.”

Please email if you are interested in August!

Name: August 
Age:  4-5 years 
Breed: Shepherd mix
Size: Medium, 30 lbs.
Sex:  Male, Neutered 
Location: Montgomery County, Texas

August is with Paws R' Th' Caws Rescue:

VET INFORMATION: August is neutered but will need to be brought up to date on his vaccinations.  He is not microchipped.  His rescue is not sure why he is blind, but he may be able to see shadows in bright, outdoor light.  His hearing is good, and August is otherwise healthy.

RESCUE INFORMATION: August has been with Paws R' Th' Caws for about a year. He came from a local dog pound. August is an indoor dog who is kenneled in an area of the house. He lives with several other dogs inside the house. He is housebroken and, when he's let out in the fenced yard, will sit quietly waiting to be let back in. August will answer to his name. He's attentive and cooperative. He's a quiet dog who listens well. August is good with men, women, and teenagers, but he's never been around young children. There are cats on the property where he lives. He's never really noticed them and never interacted with them. August is not possessive with treats, toys, or food. He is not aggressive toward other animals or people and has no bite history. If a dog runs up to August and gets in his face startling him since he didn't see the dog coming, August will growl to brace himself and let the other dog know that he is uncomfortable, but that's it. His rescue feels that he adapts well to new situations and surroundings despite his blindness. 
Does anyone have room for sweet August?
Stevie Wonder

Stevie Wonder

Please email or or if you're interested in Stevie Wonder!  
Please note that we will ask for a vet reference.
For a video of Stevie Wonder, please visit:

Name: Stevie Wonder
DOB: 7/22/2022
Breed: Feist (a small hunting dog, descended from terriers)
Size when grown: Medium, 20-25 lbs. 
Sex:  Male, not neutered
Location:  Pike County, AR

Vet Information: Stevie has had 2 distemper/parvo vaccinations since the rescue is able to administer those vaccines.  He has not had a rabies vaccination. Stevie has not seen a vet, been heartworm tested, or microchipped.  His rescue thinks that he may have some vision but it is limited. 

From Stevie Wonder's Rescue:   Stevie was born to a mother who came into his rescue as a stray.  She is a medium sized dog, and his rescue believes that is what he will be. They feel like he would do better in a home with someone that can help with training a dog that is vision impaired.

Stevie is an inside dog that is crated. He is not housebroken or leash trained. He doesn't know any commands and has not had any training.  Stevie is described as being outgoing, good with men, women, and teenagers. He might be fine with smaller children, but he is a puppy who likes to jump when he gets excited. Stevie is good with other dogs, but he has not been around other animals. He is not possessive of toys, treats or food and has never snapped or bitten anyone.  His rescue feels that Stevie would adapt well to new situations and surroundings despite his blindness because he's a happy dog that wants to play and be around people.  His rescue tells us that Stevie is a very sweet boy that is a very active puppy.  They believe he'd benefit from a home that can dedicate time to training and socializing him.

His Rescue Would Like You To Know:  "He would love to play with other dogs.  He's very sweet but needs some training. I have to keep him crated because I have other dogs in my rescue, and I don't want him to get hurt. I believe he has some vision if you are very close to him."

Rescue Information:  Stevie Wonder is with Dime's Legacy Animal Sanctuary  and


For a video of Apollo from chain to freedom, please visit:

Please email or message if you are interested in Apollo!
Name: Apollo
Age: between 2 and 3 years old
Breed: Mastiff mix/unknown
Size: Large, approx. 90# 
Sex:  Male, neutered
Location:  Hawkins County, Tennessee

Vet Information:  Apollo is neutered and microchipped. He has tested negative for heartworm. Apollo has been to a veterinary ophthalmologist and was diagnosed with 'suspected corneal dystrophy, both eyes'. This is likely genetic. He is partially blind but worsening. He has some vision but his eyes seem to be getting more cloudy. He can jump on/off the deck and run up/down the steps now. However if a new obstacle is added he often runs into it but then learns to go around. Otherwise, Apollo is healthy. He does well when he visits the vet.

Rescue Information:   Last summer, Apollo was found abandoned and on a chain with another dog and puppies who have since been adopted through A Voice For Pets, which is Apollo's rescue. Due to his size and special needs, A Voice For Pets is still seeking the right family for Apollo.

From Apollo's Rescue: Apollo is an outdoor dog with a fenced yard.  He's not housebroken, but, if let out regularly, he keeps a clean kennel. Apollo will have 'accidents' if outside time gets delayed. His rescue is working on teaching him the cue for Sit, but he definitely needs basic training.  Apollo isn't leash trained, but with use of an EasyWalk harness, he does well on a leash.

Apollo is an outgoing pup who is good with men, women, and teenagers.  His rescue uses a kennel set up to allow each dog their own space. Apollo plays with the female Lab next to him through the kennel fence. He and the Lab share toys back and forth under the kennel rail. Apollo socializes with the others through the kennels when out. If they bark at him, he moves on. When new dogs have been put next to him he is often defensive initially through the kennel fence.  He may be food protective, but his rescue isn't certain about that. The rescue believes with slow introductions he would be dog friendly, especially with calm females. Since so many of the dogs in the rescue have issues of their own, they have not had the opportunity to directly test Apollo. His rescue would not recommend he be with small animals at this time.  Apollo barks at delivery persons but not aggressively.
Apollo's rescue says that he adapted great when he got there, so they believe that he adapts well to new situations and surroundings despite being visually impaired.

His Rescue Would Like You To Know:  "We can continue fostering but feel he could benefit in a home environment and more 1:1 teaching/training. He is very sweet. He is gentle when calm but a bit of a 'bull in a china shop' when excited. He has had limited experiences in his life and gets so excited when given attention and playtime. He's like a puppy in a giant body. We love him but he deserves so much more than a 10x10 kennel for a home. He is happy to be chain free though."

Meet Lilly, a sweet Anatolian/Great Pyrenees 1-yr old pup. Lilly had a rough start in life. She was dumped on our property, together with her sister Mira, which was pretty traumatizing. Unfortunately, we found out that she’s visually impaired. Even though she can’t see much, it doesn’t stop her from playing with the other dogs in our care. She loves to wrestle, play in the sandbox, or demand some cuddles from us. You can find many pictures and videos of Lilly on our FB page IM DINGO Dog Rescue. Lilly will need a fenced in yard, no children in her home, calm environment, someone who understands her special needs and will be home with her the majority of the time.

Size: (When Grown) Large 61-100 Lbs (28-45 Kg)
Weight: (Current) 95 Lbs

Meet Mira. This is the sweetest girl you will ever meet. Mira was dumped on our property, together with her sister Lilly. Unfortunately, Mira was so scared, she ran off before we could secure her. She lived on her own, at 4 months of age, for 17 days and SURVIVED! We named her Mira, short for Miracle. Mira wants to be everyone’s (dog) friend, but always stays close to her sister Lilly. These two girls always smile and enjoy running and wrestling all over our property.

Due to them not being properly socialized, they are both very shy.  They will need a calm environment, with not a lot of foot traffic. They will give you lots of love and even more laughter. They are both dolls!

Are you looking for a low-maintenance pair, please look no further. They truly are a joy to be around.


Adorable Buddy is in a foster home with Main Line Shelter in Chester Springs, PA.  

For a video of Buddy, please visit:

From Buddy's Shelter:  
Buddy: 4 years, 4 months old 
Breed: Mixed Breed 
Sex: Male 
Size: Large, 56 pounds

SEE NO EVIL! HEAR NO EVIL! Our beautiful Buddy may have limited vision & no hearing, but surprisingly he acts like any normal dog. To start with, Buddy has the softest, most velvety, most plushy white coat that is hard to keep your hands off. Fortunately for Buddy, he adores petting & prolonged cuddles. He is so super affectionate that he will fall asleep in your arms if you keep petting him. But Buddy is an action dog too. You can leash walk him anywhere (he walks very nicely on a leash), & he never bumps into anything. He is very well housebroken & has no trouble finding trees or posts to lift his leg against. And Buddy enjoys a really good run too! In the big fenced yard, Buddy will suddenly get the zoomies & will take off at a furious pace around & around the yard, never bumping into anything. In the Home School Room, Buddy is a whiz at doing dog puzzles in which treats are hidden. He finds every treat & then finds your pocket to see if you might have any extra treats. When he tires of exploring the room, he jumps up onto the couch next to you & will fall asleep if you cuddle him. 

In some respects, Buddy puts his limitations to his advantage. Because he is deaf, Buddy is immune to the constant barking in the kennel & he finds it easy to maintain his calm disposition. Buddy would love a home with another nice calm dog & a fenced yard for safety. He is really a very well adjusted, joyful, affectionate, playful, & easy going dog who is so grateful for human attention & who will steal your heart as soon as you meet him!

Buddy came to the PSPCA in August of 2022 from ACCT in Philly. He came in with 2 other deaf/blind dogs who all came from the same house prior to being surrendered to ACCT when their owner could no longer care for them. They were presumed bonded, but after getting to know them, our team determined they could be separated, as it would be easier to find them homes this way, and they seemed comfortable and happy when apart. Buddy's brothers have since been adopted and he's left waiting for his forever home!

Buddy originally had a lot of trouble adjusting to the kennel environment and would spin and bark in his kennel, but has since really settled in and found his rhythm. He sits patiently in his kennel, waiting for friends to take him out. He is friendly with all people and absolutely loves other dogs. He was briefly in a foster home, but unfortunately the foster's resident dog became aggressive towards Buddy, and the foster parent was unable to separate them to prevent her dog from going after Buddy. He was returned to the shelter in December and has been there ever since!  Buddy has recently been moved to another foster home. He's a really nice man, we're hoping someone will step up and provide him the TLC he deserves.

Vegas, Dragon Dream Team Rescue


Name: Vegas
Age:  4-5 years 
Breed: German Shepherd/Husky mix
Size: Large, 55 lbs.
Sex:  Female, Spayed 
Location:  Jackson County, Kentucky 

Vet Information: Vegas is spayed and microchipped. She is up to date on vaccinations. Vegas is heartworm positive, but her rescue is going to be treating her for it. She is partially blind but sees shadows. Vegas bumps into things in dim lighting. She has a salve that is to be put in her eyes for glaucoma, but Vegas is resistant to having salve or drops put in to the point that her rescue is debating whether it is worth the daily struggle to administer it. Vegas may develop cataracts and eventually be totally blind. 

Rescue Profile: Please see the link below for Vegas' online profile with her rescue: 

Rescue Information: Vegas is currently with Dragon Dream Team Rescue after having been rescued from the streets.  They're seeking help with placing her because she is a nice dog who gets along with most other dogs, but they feel she'd do better in a calmer home situation.  Vegas is housebroken and leash trained.  She is working on learning sit and come!  Vegas is an outgoing girl who is good with men, women, and teenagers.  She's around many different dogs in her foster home, male and female, young and old, and gets along well providing that the other dogs don't jump in her face.  Vegas has never shown aggression to any person or other animal, and she has no bite history.  However, Vegas can be nervous around food and possessive with her food dish. Her rescue says that her food can be left out, but if she is eating, she will bark and jump at any dog who approaches. Vegas has typical husky behavior and listens when she wants to!  She has energy like a husky. Her rescue is recommending a home without children because she can be pushy and jump on you at times.  A fenced-in yard is a must.  She's been on an outing to Tractor Supply with her rescue, and she wagged her tail and greeted all the people she met there.  They tell us that, in her foster home, Vegas seemed to attach herself to one person in the family. The other person has to put a leash on her to make her go outside.  Vegas is very much a house dog!

Kita, Big East Akita Rescue


Please email if you are interested in Kita!

To view a video of Kita’s journey back to health with before and after photos, please visit:

Name: Kita
Age: 2-3 years
Breed: Akita/Husky mix or all Akita
Size: Large, 79 lbs. 
Sex:  Female, spayed
Location:  Bucks County, PA

Vet Information:  Kita is spayed and microchipped. Per her rescue, she is up to date on vaccines. Kita tested heartworm negative. She was found neglected on the streets. Her blindness is due to Uveodermatological Syndrome (UDS) which is an immune-mediated canine disease characterized by inflammation of the eye, depigmentation of skin and whitening of hair. Please see the link in the rescue information below for more information. Kita has had both eyes removed.

Foster Information:  Kita is currently in a foster home affiliated with Big East Akita Rescue. She has been there since her enucleation surgery in early 2022. When she arrived, she was in poor physical condition. She needed love and healing which received in her foster home, and she is now ready to go to a loving home of her own. Kita is in foster because they feel that she was fearful in the kennel, and she is reactive to other dogs. She would do best in a home without other pets or small children. Kita is currently living with four other Akitas, but it is not the best situation for her, according to her foster parent. Kita is not possessive with treats, toys, or food. However, she has snapped at a child twice, but she did not make contact. Kita is an indoor dog confined to one area of the home. She is housebroken. Kita knows cues for up (to go up the steps), down (to go down the steps), sit, stay, and caution. She has learned all of these helpful cues at her foster home. Kita is an outgoing girl who is good with men, women, and teenagers.

Kita is a 2-3 year old blind female Akita that was found abandoned on the city streets of Philadelphia, PA. This lovely gal was found to have VKH.
This disease is easily managed by using steroids. Kita has since had both eyes removed to alleviate pain. She appears to have been blind for some time and navigates well. Kita is a confident loving gal who loves toys and responds well to voices. Kita never meets a stranger, loves all people, and is always up for a new adventure. Our girl Kita sees with her heart and not her eyes. Interested in Kita? Please go to our website and fill out an online adoption application.


Name: Keenan 
Age: Senior, 10 years
Breed: Husky mix
Size: Large, 50 lbs.
Sex: Male, neutered
Location: Hardin County, Texas

My name is Keenan and I was adopted from the Houston Humane Society in 2013 as a puppy and in March of 2022, my family decided they could "no longer walk me" (health reasons, perhaps, theirs not mine). So I found myself at 10 years old back in the care of the Houston Humane Society. A representative from BFF Pet Adoptions was over there for an event and she saw me and knew my fate, being 10 years young. So she asked if she could pull me into BFF and she was allowed to do now I am ready for my "true forever home". I am a sweet boy, no accidents in my kennel. I walk well on a leash and I just want to live out the rest of my days in the lap of luxury. I have many good years left, so please consider adding me to your family. Seniors are the best.. NONE of those crazy puppy antics. I do seem to have some sight issues and that is no big deal. I do need a home with a tall, secure fence, as huskies are known for being escape artists. Here at BFF I walk around looking up at the top of a 10 foot fence. I am up to date on vaccines, am neutered and heartworm negative. My adoption fee is $200.00. For additional pictures and information click here:

Vet Information:  Keenan is neutered, up to date on vaccines, and has had a negative heartworm test. He is vision impaired due to age, and his vision is continuing to deteriorate.

Dog Information:   Keenan had been adopted from a shelter in Houston as a pup in 2013 and was surrendered back to them in March 2022. He was pulled from the shelter and taken in by a local rescue, BFF Pet Adoption. He has been with them for about two months.  Keenan is an indoor dog with the run of the house. He is housebroken and leash trained. He knows the cue for sit. Keenan is an outgoing boy who is good with people of all ages and other dogs. He is not possessive with treats, toys, or food, and he has never shown aggression to people or other animals. He has no bite history.

Name: Trouble
Age: 10 years old
Breed: Terrier mix
Size: 59 lbs.
Sex: Male
Location: Williamsport, PA

Trouble is no trouble!!  He is an independent boy who is happy just doing his own thing.  He is very sweet and loves going for walks. He is visually impaired so he really enjoys exploring the world through scent and touch.  He does hyper-focus on toys to the point where it is difficult to get them back, he may even ignore everything else to try and find the toy.  Trouble should only be adopted by a family with children over age 16, and he needs to be an only pet.

Trouble is with Lycoming County SPCA in Williamsport, PA. Contact info is (570) 322-4646 or

Lenie Lemon, Paws New England

Lenie Lemon

Name: Lenie Lemon
Age: Young, approximately 2 years old
Breed: Pit Bull mix
Size:  45 lbs.
Sex: Female, spayed
Location: Massachussetts

No Cats 
Special Needs 

Lenie Lemon is a very special girl to our rescue who needs someone that either has experience with blind dogs or has the desire to learn more about them. We learned a lot about Lemon recently as she was with a family for two months – while she was not a great match for them (she absolutely despised their cat and made it known), they were able to help us understand her a bit more so we can find her next spot. Prior to her adoption, she had been living in a boarding situation and as such it was nearly impossible to know what she’d be like in a home situation. Lemon is a fast learner who loves snuggling, easily shows her belly when it’s time for rubs. She’s quiet in her crate and will go in to settle. She is great in the car and loves trail walks and does great on them. She loves to play with toys and loves her bones. She’s super affectionate with her person. Some of her challenges are puppy mouthiness and learning to not use her mouth to get what she wants. She can become overstimulated easily so teaching her to settle is a work in progress and will need to continue. She seems to think that most things are hers and may react when you try to take them away from her – we’ve asked her current fosters (she’s in boarding at a trainer) to work on this with her. Her former foster did say however she was showing progress with this and seemed to be gaining ground – for this reason, no children for this girl for now. Obviously, her blindness can lead her to be easily started when approached quickly without warning.
We want this to be Lemon’s last home so will be sure to be careful choosing where she lands. She’s so affectionate that anyone will be lucky to have her! 

12/20 update: Lenie Lemon is still looking for her forever home. Lemon has become comfortable with one of our dogs that we have done slow introductions with. We are working on the other one. She has the full family room as her living area. Each day she is in the full house while we put the cats in a safe room. Lemon crates extremely well. She loves bananas and any treat. Taking a large treat or cookie gently is much improved. Lemon knows many commands and used them all flawlessly at the vet the other day. She walks well on a leash as long as she has a harness rather than a collar. She doesn't try to play tug of war with it when she is in a harness. When we both have to work longer days, we hire a friend's teen to come sit with her, let the dogs in and out and play with her. Lemon loves hide and go seek! She is doing well with clicker training now that we can give her treats more easily. She really just wants to be with you and loves everyone she meets once she can figure out who they are and have a slow meeting to smell them enough. Then she is best friends. 

Vaccinations: Up to date
Heartworm: Negative
Microchipped: Yes

Good with Children: Over 12
Good with Dogs: Has done well with dogs in the past - would need slow intros
Good with Cats: Absolutely no 
Gidget & Pepper, Heartland Rescue Ranch

Gidget & Pepper

Meet Gidget.  When poor Gidget was rescued, she had a double eye infection, which she was treated for.  However the vet believes she will not regain her sight.  The vet said she has corneal scaring.   Gidget is now in foster care and is reported to be doing very well.  Gidget is said to be house broken, good with adults, kids and cats.  Gidget is with Heartland Rescue Ranch, in Southport, Florida. 
For more information on this sweetheart or to adopt her, visit: Gidget is still  looking for her forever home as of 12/20/21 and has bonded with Pepper. Some additional updated information on Gidget: "The brown dog is her best friend, Pepper. They are in a foster home together and have become the best of friends, so ideally we would love it if they would be adopted together. Pepper is visually impaired due to untreated eye infection, blind in one eye and limited vision in the other. We would love for her to be adopted with her ‘service dog’. They are both great dogs! Pepper is about a year old. Very playful. They have both been fostered with dogs and cats. Great with children. Both spayed and vaccinated. Transport can be available.
Brad, My Next Pet


I am blind.
Please contact My Next Pet in the Charlotte, NC metro area.
Brad is still looking for his forever home. Brad was found hungry, weak and injured by rescuers with the Beagle Freedom Project. They mercifully took him in to save his life and cared for him until a foster home with Animal Adoption League was able to commit. After rescue, it was sadly discovered that Brad had not only been neglected, but was also heartworm positive and completely blind. It has been a long journey of recovery for Brad, but he is now thriving in his foster home. He is completely heartworm free and healthy now! Brad is doing remarkably well living the indoor life and loves living with other friendly pets. He not only adores playing with other dogs, but also relies on them for many cues due to his blindness. He definitely needs a kind dog friend in his forever home! Brad is also great with cats and does not react to them at all. He also has been around children as young as 7 and is wonderful with them too. Brad has been working with a professional trainer to learn how to navigate life as a blind gentleman. This has helped his confidence soar as he has learned basic obedience, navigation commands and now loves going on long walks with ease. *His adoption includes a session with his trainer to help him and his new family adjust. Brad is a very special pup who will make a wonderful addition to a home that is dedicated to his well-being and comfort. He is not high maintenance and likes to spend a lot of time cuddling on the couch in a pile of blankets. To meet this handsome guy, please fill out an application:

Diva is still in need of a home as of August 2022

Diva is my very special blind foster girl. She entered my life in August of last year and has left a lasting "paw print" on my heart. I was so nervous and scared at the idea bringing a blind dog into my home. I purchased the best-rated raising a blind dog books and did my best to prepare.... but you know what? instructor, teacher and friend was able to teach me everything I needed to know and that was Diva herself. She has been blind her entire 7 years of life, her attitude is "I got this and I will show you" and show me she did. Diva showed me she was very adaptable to a predictable environment, Diva showed me just a few carefully chosen words would keep her out of trouble, Diva showed me that all dogs can be off-leash and MOST IMPORTANTLY Diva has taught me to slow down and listen, there is so much to be experienced through the pleasure of sound.

Diva has her own FB page…/

Many wonderful folks follow and comment on Diva's page and her life as my foster dog. They say "you should just keep her" "she looks so happy". I love Diva. Her perfect forever home is out there. She NEEDS TO BE THE ONLY DOG. I run an animal rescue, there are so many dogs (besides my 4 personal dogs) in and out of my home. She is not comfortable with all the dogs around and just WANTS to be with her "person". I KNOW her PERSON is out there. Her person will snuggle and love her all day long. Her person will embrace the 100% devotion Diva is ready to give. Her person will be open to learning and loving life even more through the gifts Diva has to offer.
When Diva's PERSON arrives, I will cry tears of joy and sadness. I will cry because I will be so overcome with joy that she will get the life she so rightly deserves and sad because selfishly I will miss my dog friend, my early morning cranberry bogs buddy and my end of the day snuggle partner.
