Kennel License #13561
PO Box 286 Schnecksville, PA 18078

Meet Oliver!

This handsome boy is approaching two years old and looking for his forever home.

The thing about Oliver is, because of his past, he doesn’t understand human touch. He will require an extremely patient person or family to allow him his boundaries and the time to learn the true meaning of family life! Oliver is extremely food/treat motivated, loves toys and to go to the dog park.

The most ideal home for Oliver would be a home with a fenced yard and another or multiple dogs to learn from.

Oliver is neutered, up to date on vaccines, and microchipped. He will require a belly band.

Meet Gemma!

Gemma is a 5 year old, beautiful poodle/bichon mix who came from a puppy mill. She is as sweet as pie but takes time to come around to humans, so her adoptive family will needs patience and time for her to adjust. Gemma’s foster said she absolutely loves to snuggle up on the couch, gives kisses and will become your shadow, being everywhere you are! Gemma is doing great with potty training but will need a fence or leash as she can scare easily, until bonded with her adopter. She is crate trained and sleeps at night in her crate as well without a peep.

We are looking for a home for Gemma without children, as a quiet and calming home would be best for her.

Meet Trixie!

This sweet girl is a 4 year old Bichon. She is a retired puppy mill momma in search of the perfect home! Trixie is spayed, up to date on vaccines, and had her teeth cleaned! She takes a little while to warm up but once she does, she is a spunky girl! She is good with kids, LOVES other dogs, and is cat friendly. Trixie absolutely loves to be outside in the sun & long walks are her favorite thing!

She is spayed and up to date on vaccines.

Meet Yogi!

This boy is an approx. 2 year old, Spaniel/poodle mix. He is neutered, microchipped, and up to date on vaccines. Yogi is a very sweet pup, loves to go for walks. Yogi is good with cats and kids, but would be best as the only dog in the home.


Once you help save one, you will want to save them all. Interested in learning more?

  2. I have some questions about Ray. Does he have SARDS? Does he use a Walkin Blind Dog Harness? I am interested in adopting him. Does he know basic Blind dogs commands or do I need to teach him? He is young enough to learn basic 1 word commands and live a happy life. I have application on file.

  9. Hello! I’m interested in adopting Gemma, and I filled out an application for her two days ago. I left a message here which was never posted and I’ve sent an email which has not been replied to. I’m just curious as to how long the wait is until we hear whether the application has been accepted or not, and I have asked several times how much your adoption fees are. A reply would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much.

    1. Hello,
      Please know we are volunteer based and work as quickly as possible to sort through applications and emails. The process from date of application submitted typically takes 7-10 days. If you are chosen to meet Gemma, our coordinator will be in touch. Gemma’s adoption fee is $450. Thank you!

      1. Thank you very much for your reply! I greatly appreciate it and also thanks for all you do for animals in need.
