Winston is such a lover! He's 40 lbs of affection and snuggles. He's a little shy at first but warms up quickly to everyone and everything he meets. Winston loves children and enjoys the company of other dogs. He really enjoys laying anywhere he can have human contact. He has recently discovered eating ice and chasing a ball in the backyard. He's a smart little boy. He has been neutered, brought up to date on vaccinations, tested negative for heartworm disease, and has been given preventatives. We thought he would get to go north to a partner, but he is available for adoption in the local (drive-to-us) area. For a young dog under 1 year old, he is really as perfect as we see them. Because we are foster-based, we require an approved application before a meet and greet can be scheduled. We think that is fair for our fosters so every meet & greet has the potential to result in an immediate adoption. The application is available on the rescue website and can be completed online.
We work with many rescues and strive to find every rescued dog in our care a great home. Sometimes that means transferring that pet to another location where adoption may be more likely. We currently have partners in New York, Pennsylvania, and Vermont.
If you are interesting in meeting any of our pets, the process is to complete an application. It can be downloaded as a pdf document from our website and submitted by email to WindyRidgeRescue@gmail.com as a scanned document or as photos OR can be completed entirely online. Both links are in the header of our website.
Because we are foster based, we require an approved application to schedule a meet and greet. We feel that is fair to our fosters and rescues so every meet and greet can result in an adoption.
We do not have set adoption fees for dogs, but hope adopters will donate generously so we can rescue more. The medical care for every dog can easily exceed the adoption donation. Average adoption fees for dogs in the area range from $175 up to $450.
We ask for a minimum adoption donation of $50 for cats regardless of age. Each cat is up to date on vaccinations, dewormer, and microchipped. Larger donations are always welcome so we can rescue more. Medical care for each cat easily exceeds the minimum donation.
As with every rescue, our resources are limited and the need for rescue help is unlimited. Your generosity helps us to rescue more.
Adopting or fostering for a rescue frees up a space where a new rescue can reside.
If you can't adopt or foster, than please consider donating.
FindpetTM is a Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry for the AAHA Universal Pet Microchip Lookup Tool. AAHA provides an
