Ford: CFP Pet of the Month

Meet Ford.

His fosters recognize what an incredible dog he is and have been working with a professional trainer to help him reach his full potential. He is just over 1-yearold and knows how to sit, lay down, wait for his food, come, and drop the ball when playing fetch. Ford is a total lovebug in the house; he likes to snuggle with his fosters and their dog He is dog selective and can be aggressive with dogs he does not like; however, he is living nicely with a female.

He is not at all food aggressive and is very food/treat motivated which has helped with his training. Ford does best out of a crate – he is not a destructive dog, but being crated does stress him out. Ford has some issues with his hips – as is so common with shepherd mixes. The vet sees no medical reason for this and feels he may have been injured at some point and so is now protective of this area.

His fosters are steadily brushing him which is helping with desensitizing his backside, but he does tend to be protective of his hind quarters.

Lennon: CFP Pet of the Month

Meet Presley!


Meet Presley! Her main goal in life is more belly rubs. Second, she loves to snuggle. This 2-year-old is a very happy dog with a huge smile. She loves to go on walks with her canine foster sister and sunbathe in the grass. Presley is a good listener and loves being in her crate. She is working on her relationship with cats, but does well with kids and other dogs. She loves going places and does very well in a car!

She was featured on Bob and the Showgram 

If she is adopted within two months of her radio debut on Aug. 3, she will get a Beginning Pet Kit from The Pet PantryPreseyColl.

ZIGGY – adopt a pet

Ziggy (formerly Tristen who was pulled while on an urgent euthanasia list at a rural shelter) is doing great. He is a very smart and loyal boy. He is completely housebroken and will sit next to the door when ready to go out to do his business. He loves to play fetch, and loves all toys. […]

Adopt a pet raleigh- teddy


FullSizeRender (2)This sweet fellow was pulled from a shelter with serious medical conditions – his original people could not afford to get him the needed surgery. However, the kind folks at  Mitchell Mill Animal Hospital provided his surgery for free — and his foster parents have nursed him back to health!!


He is great now and ready to find his fur-ever home. He’s about 11-months-old, is house broken and crate trained! He gets along great with dogs and all people.


If you would like to meet this handsome boy, start with an application at, and we will connect you with his fosters.


Scroll down to see all of his photos and click to watch him play with his foster canine sister, Addie (who graciously loaned Teddy the outfit for the icy day). Please click for more on his wonderful story, including his special daytime place.

Pet of the Month: Sweet SUGAR!

Hi, my name is Sugar.

I’m a middle aged (7-8 human ySugar2_11-15 (2)ears) German Shepard mix looking for my FURever home.  I need some regular supplements to help my joints. From what I hear, this is pretty normal for middle aged humans as well, so I hope you don’t hold it against me. I have some wrinkles, but aren’t they cute? I love to go for walks and sometimes play, but my favorite thing to do is to hang at your feet and take a nap. I never jump on the furniture, I don’t chew on things I shouldn’t (well, I DO love to chomp on grass!), and I LOVE other dogs (my foster mom says I would probably be great with cats too, since I barely even flinch when the puppies get all over me). I’m looking for a nice family to love me for the rest of my days. If you are looking for a totally chill kinda gal, I’m yours.

Please fill out an application so we can meet. Thanks!


Dallas – “Pet of the Month”


Dallas is a handsome Blue Brindle Pit mix rDallas3_12-15escued from a rural shelter. He adjusted quickly and nicely to his foster home where he is getting along great with both cats and various size dogs! He weighs 50 pounds and is about 2-years-old. He is very gentle, but incredibly strong and excitable so we recommend no small children or senior dogs.

The vet diagnosed him as heartworm positive, and started him on treatment. As one can imagine, vet visits and treatment can be costly, and Dallas’ care is no different at an estimate of around $450. We are asking our generous CFP nation to contribute to Dallas’ vet expenses and become a “Dallas Donor” at

(HeartDallas1_12-15worm is not a liability and is not contagious to dogs who are on a preventative. Dallas is up for adoption — if you would like to meet him, please start by filling our our adoption app at
