About Cato

Male | Approx 1.5 yrs |31 lbs | Ridgeback mix

Cato is a very affectionate and lovable boy. Loves to cuddle up with you. He loves people, so we expect he would be ok with children, but because he’s a high energy pup, we suggest older children that are comfortable with dogs. 

Initially can be nervous meeting new dogs, but has been good with the foster's dogs. Would do well with another playmate a similar size. Can also be the only dog as he loves human attention. 

Loves his squeaky toys as well as stuffies! He does well, but occasionally needs to be redirected from things not meant to be chewed. 

Cato is still very much a puppy that needs adopters that will concentrate on his training and possibly take him to obedience classes. 

Housetraining took some time, but we can say now, thanks to the foster's commitment, he has been accident free! 

An active person or family would be best for this guy! 


Adoption Fee | $500

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.

Why We Love Fostering

  • Fostering gives me the opportunity to share a journey with an animal who has no one else. Without people like me these dogs may not get a second chance at feeling safe and finding a stable, loving forever home. I remember each of them vividly and we have a special bond.
    - Cheryl & Debbie

Why We Love Fostering

  • Fostering opens you up to helping so many incredible animals. The dogs we have fostered all had different personalities, needs and quirks. We remember them all fondly. We love fostering because it is more flexible than most people would imagine. We can decide when to take a dog (so family vacations are easy to plan), what size (under 70lbs for us) and PAN is amazing at matching us with dogs that fit our needs.
