UPDATE - 30 DECEMBER 2022 (from foster family): Menina is an adorable sweetheart! She loves EVERYBODY . . . A LOT! She would do well with another loving companion, human or canine. She is fully house trained, loves walks, and playing with toys. She is young, still plays like a puppy but hasn’t destroyed anything except tissues (watch out trash cans!). She learns easily: our stairs, doggy door, counter surfing, the joys of snuggling, & treats! She is mostly quiet, (so far) sometimes making cute little noises. She did growl & bark at a beagle pillow (video upon request) and howled at our neighbors’ dog once. She is a little sad when we leave but handles separation very well and settles down nicely. And she’s always happy to see us when we return!
UPDATE - 3 DECEMBER 2022: Menina is now fully vetted and in a foster home. We will be learning more about her soon!
NEW - 13 NOVEMBER 2022: Meet Menina, an adorable beagle girl who is friendly and good with other dogs. She was a stray at the Amelia Animal Shelter in Virginia, so her history is unknown. She will be available soon.
Q: Can you tell me more about a specific dog? Is s/he good with kids / housetrained / good with cats/ etc?
A: What we know is in the write up. Our knowledge about any dog that is not in a foster homes is limited. Once approved, our adoption coordinators will work with you to match you with the right dog.
Q: Can I meet a specific dog?
A: We’re sorry, but you must be an approved adopter to meet our dogs. Pre-pandemic, dogs could be met at adoption days, but you still had to be approved to adopt from an adoption day.
Q: How can I adopt a specific dog?
A: You must submit an adoption application and be approved to adopt. You can do that under Adopt – you can also learn about the adoption process there.. It will take about two weeks for an adoption coordinator to get in touch with you. Please keep in mind that dogs that are available now may be adopted in the meantime. But we are always getting new dogs. You can see them on our website.
Q: Can I add another dog to the list on my application?
A: We don’t hold you to the dogs you listed on your application. It gives us an idea of what you are looking for. Plus it will let us know if someone is interested in one of our special needs / hard to place dogs.
Q: I indicated that I was interested in a specific dog on my application, but I see that s/he has been adopted. What happened?
A: We do not hold dogs. Applicants in the queue before you are being approved and may adopt the dog you are interested in before you are approved. But we are always getting new dogs in and your adoption coordinator will help you find the perfect match.
