*** Please note that we are NOT accepting applications for the dogs listed as Coming Soon. These dogs have either yet to arrive or have only just recently arrived. Once their foster families get to know them a little better, a detailed bio outlining their personality and describing their ideal home will be posted and we will then begin accepting applications for them. ***
Delilah is a typical puppy that needs structure and training. Very active and assertive with other dogs, but can also be a bit of a bully, nipping and barking at them. She will need ongoing training and boundaries if around other dogs. Otherwise, would need to be the only dog in the home.
She is working on walking on leash as she, at times, will just stop and not want to go any further, but does enjoy to stop and sniff on her walks.
Delilah lived with children in her previous home, but it is suggested she go to a home with older children as she’s so tiny and also does nip and bite like a puppy.
This girl is confident as well as very loving and sweet! She has some sass and is looking for an equally confident adopter!
Adoption Fee | $600
Adoption fees help cover the costs associated with rescue, such as vetting, boarding, and transportation.
Prior to adoption, dogs are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and 4Dx tested, and they receive any necessary treatment. After adoption, they are eligible for one month of free pet insurance.
For more information about adoption fees, please review our Adoption FAQs & Fees page.
Why We Love Fostering
There is a special joy in seeing the transformation from fear to trust in a foster cat’s face and posture, the first time they relax and warm up to me. There is so much comedy in a litter of crazy kittens, rollicking and tumbling, learning how to be big cats. Each foster kitty has been cared for as if they were my own, and I enjoy the confidence in the feeling that they are ready for their forever home. That is the biggest difference between choosing to adopt from a small rescue rather than a shelter, and why I love volunteering. People often ask me how I can be so strong to let such sweet kitties go to adoption, but the feeling that I have space to help another is worth the emotional goodbye. Penny is the twenty-first cat I have helped, and I am not going to stop anytime soon! Fostering for Pets Alive is by far the most rewarding volunteering I have ever done.
