ADOPTABLE DOGS

KEN


Ken is a 16 week old male French Bulldog with a cleft palate. He is a little bowling ball who honestly likes to observe everything around him. Ken is very shy at first but once he trusts you then he will come around and be your best pal. He really loves his food more than anything and doesn't like to share any other snacks. He's been able to play with other dogs he is familiar with, but food and treats are best given separately. It takes quite a bit for him to warm up to new dogs. Ideally he would be the only dog in the home and would be in a home with no kids or older children / teens. He is always down for a snuggle and is ready to be the perfect couch potato. He is looking for his own "Mojo Dojo Casa House"!

CASH

MEET OUR COUNTRY CREW

BUCKY, CASH, AND REBA

Meet our country crew! Bucky, Cash, and Reba were surrendered to our rescue by another larger local animal shelter. They did not have the resources and experience we have with veterinary medicine to care for these three. None of them have cleft lips or palates, but each of them needed to be tube fed when they were babies. Their mama dog, named Dolly, passed away shortly after giving birth. The puppies were not taking to being bottle fed at all and it was recommended by multiple veterinarians to have them tube fed. It was because of our years of experience with tube feeding that these babies were surrendered to us and we are grateful to get the chance to care for them. In honor of their mama, Dolly, we named these three after famous Country singers!

ALREADY ADOPTED: BUCKY is a 13 week old mixed breed male. Bucky is the smallest of the three and is incredibly sweet. He enjoys kisses and cuddles and will make sure you know he loves you. He would make a great couch potato with you! He is great around other dogs and kids, and would make a great family dog!

CASH is now a 16 week old mixed breed male. Cash is the largest of the three and has such a loving personality! He is extremely playful and always seems happy to be around his friends. He is friendly with other dogs, kids, and people and would love to walk the line... to your front door!

ALREADY ADOPTED: REBA is a 13 week old mixed breed female. Reba is feeling *fancy* and it shows! She is a little superstar that just steals your heart! She loves to sing sweet melodies to her brothers and our volunteers. She has been working 9 to 5 to steal your heart! She would be a perfect addition to any family!

Unfortunately we do not know the breed history based on their background, but we do know that the doctors are estimating these puppies to get around 50 pounds when they are fully grown! All three have been cleared by their veterinarian to find their forever homes!

EAGLE

MEET OUR GROCERY GANG

Meet our Grocery Gang! This litter came to us from a pretty scary situation... we received a call from the Brookpark Police Department stating somebody had left a litter of basically newborn puppies in a grocery bag outside of the local Rite Aid. The puppies were on deaths door because they were not getting any nourishment or help from mom. They had no idea where they come from, only that some person decided to tie them up in a grocery bag and leave them for dead in the parking lot. Thankfully the police department came to our doorstep with puppies in hand knowing we had the experience to get them back to health. Our veterinarian examined them and believed that the puppies were 1 or 2 days old when they were dumped off. We have no idea what dog breed they are but are guessing them to be some sort of small dog variety, perhaps some variety of Yorkshire Terrier / Shih Tzu / Chihuahua. Although they came from a horrible situation, all 7 of these babies are growing big and strong because of our team's experience caring for puppies. 

We named all 7 of these angels after grocery stores, and we can't tell you which one of them is the cutest... they are all so adorable! When we first rescued them we didn't think their fur would grow to be so cute and scruffy! All of them are about 13-14 weeks old and have no known medical issues. They are cleared by our veterinarians to have you Instacart them to your homes!!!

Welcome to your second chance at a good life to our grocery gang

CLAIRE

Claire is a 3 year old female spayed Pitbull. She was rescued from a high volume kill shelter in Georgia. Sadly, she was used as a bait dog and seized during a police investigation. The shelter in Georgia reached out to us to try and save her and we couldn't say no. We are so glad we said yes because she is such an angel. We have been able to let her decompress for a few months with a loving foster home where she got to know and understand what love and kindness looked like... and learning to be just a normal dog. She has been nothing but sweet and lovable. She is crate and house trained, loves to play fetch, and snuggles with her foster cats. She seems to be picky with certain dogs and this is why we believe an only dog home would be ideal for her. She is very shy at first but once she falls for you then all bets are off. According to her foster mom, she gives the best hugs, is a bed & blanket hog, loves cookies, and LOVES playing fetch with her toys. She is doing well with her basic commands and is learning well. She has been around other people and dogs and has done well with some dogs, but with her history as a bait dog, she is more nervous. She loves wearing PJs in the cold but loves to stay active! She would be an ideal dog for an active home and / or a home with cats. If you are interested in Claire and have another dog, she would need a dog with an ideal temperament and a new owner that would understand they'd need to work with her and the other dog to adjust. She deserves to find the best home and all of us at our rescue are rooting for her! Could you be her forever home?

ADOPTION APPLICATION

Please click on the link below to start our adoption application process. Please make sure to fill out the application as completely and accurately as possible. Please ONLY fill out the application for a pet that is actively up for adoption. Once the form is filled out, we will immediately get your form sent to us.

Adoption Pricing

For every pet we place up for adoption, the adoption fee may vary. Some pets you will see listed as high as $400 - $800, but never more than this. Why are some of our pets priced this high? Below is a breakdown of cost for our rescue:

Many of our rescue puppies become surrendered to us at birth or very close to the time of their birth.​ Because we are an animal rescue that functions solely off of foster homes, these puppies are being cared for around the clock, and we currently only have one person that cares for them when they are this young. Our founder is the only one on our team currently that is able to care for them when they are at this stage. This includes special tube feeding for our cleft palate babies so they don't aspirate which is a difficult feat for many.

Upon initial intake, we have a veterinarian examine the pet right away. If there are any emergency surgeries, NICU hospitalizations, or any medications needed to treat any issues at intake, we cover that expense. For example, we recently took in a French Bulldog puppy that had severe skin issues that normal antibiotics would not touch. We had to do a special skin scrape, and found that this puppy needed to be on more expensive special medicine. We covered that cost. On another occasion, we took in a paralyzed puppy that had a severe case of Coccidia and Giardia, and was very dehydrated. We not only covered the cost of medication needed, but also her hospitalization charges in ICU. All of these examples had taken place at initial intake. Even though there were added expenses and issues with these animals we did not turn them away. We always do what needs to be done to help them survive and get better.

Once we get the clear from our local veterinarian team, we will then place each pet in a foster home. As previously stated, many of these new puppies need 24/7 care. It is not an easy job staying awake with any newborn puppies, and since all of our pups have special medical needs, it does add to the workload of our team. We wouldn't have it any other way though knowing we are saving lives in the process!

While they are in foster care, our rescue covers the cost of their puppy formula or dog food, water bowls, crates, x-pens or play pens, blankets, pee pads, baby wipes, beds and toys. We cover cost of deworming medication, and make sure all pets have flea, tick, and heartworm preventatives. We regularly have a lab test their fecal to be sure our pups continue on a healthy path which is an additional cost. Some of our cleft palate puppies need specialty water feeders since they can't drink water without them as well.

When our animals reach appropriate ages while in our care they are microchipped, and receive vaccinations appropriate with their age. If they are still in our care and reach the appropriate age when they can be spayed or neutered, we cover that cost before adopting. In our adoption agreement for any future home it is agreed upon that the pet must be spayed or neutered at the appropriate age. This means that if one of our rescue pets is adopted when they are too young to be fixed, our future adopter needs to schedule an appointment with their local vet, and we will cover cost of their spay / neuter when the time comes. 

Some of the pets we've had in the past have needed specialty items as well. One of our former dogs, now known as Ernie, needed a special wagon to get around since he was unable to walk on his back legs when we first rescued him. Our rescue covered the cost of his wagon, and a specialty car seat which was an additional fee. We currently have a rescue dog in our care that may need a wheelchair, and our foster home is taking her to our local veterinarian clinic every single week to receive the laser therapy, water therapy, and physical therapy she needs. It's possible she may need a back leg amputated, but we're unsure until we watch how she grows. Our rescue will get her fitted for a wheelchair and pay for leg amputation surgery if needed.

With any adoption, the fee will cover cost of: spaying or neutering (either before or after adoption), deworming, flea, tick, heartworm medications, microchipping, vaccinations, dog toys, food bowl, water bowl, specialty water bowl (if needed for cleft palate puppies), collar, harness, leash, and a bag of dog food.

Unfortunately as many of us animal lovers know, pet care is not inexpensive as much as we like it to be. But our pets will always receive the life saving care they need. As we are a brand new non-profit and animal rescue, our hope is that over time we are able to raise more money to help lower costs for our adoption fees. Every bit of money received from an adoption fee goes right back into the next rescue animal we take in and their medical bills.

 

Our rescue is always a phone call away if anything happens after adopting. Many of our team members work at a local veterinarian clinic, and are happy to help with any questions our forever homes have. If there is ever any additional questions about our pricing, please reach out to us at: crystalscleftsoffice@gmail.com
