Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Heartworm Positive 

    BEYOND URGENT FOSTER OR ADOPTIVE HOME NEEDED BY 2-23-17 OR DOC WILL BE PUT DOWN!! PLEASE HELP THIS BOY FIND A LOVING HOME. Everyone meet Doc! He is a handsome boxer boy that is on the hunt for his forever home! He is approximately 6 years old, weighs about 60 pounds, and is heartworm positive (which will be treated by RARE). He is a very silly fella that just needs a family to spend the rest of his days with. Doc was surrendered to the shelter in January of 2017 because he bit a child in the face. BUT, the parents plainly told us that it was the child's fault! They adopted Doc from another shelter in Mississippi about 2.5 years ago ... (Read More)which was also before they had children. They had a baby and the child is now 2 years old and would not stop pulling on Doc's lips, ears, and face. The parents said they tried to teach the child not to do that but the she continued tormenting Doc until he finally snapped at her one day and bit her on the face. The parents felt that it wasn't a good situation for Doc or their daughter anymore so they decided to surrender him to us. He is approximately 6 years old, weighs about 60 pounds, is neutered, and is heartworm positive but he has been kept on a monthly heartworm preventative since they have had him. He is very playful despite his age and does good with other dogs as well. **An application and home visit are required. Transport can potentially be arranged to approved homes.

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    We have a special little guy we'd like you to meet. This is Elvis, he was born with a cleft lip and cleft palate. We honestly aren't sure how he has survived the last 5 years of his life without the surgery he has now had. Not only did he survive, but he grew into an amazing little man, with no clue of his deformity or how much easier life could have been had he been treated. He just loves life! He was dealt lemons and made himself some lemonade! When Elvis first came to us it was pretty clear he had been neglected; matted fur, rotted teeth and an eye that was blinded by glaucoma. Despite all of this, he was the happiest, most loving little ... (Read More)boy. We knew then that he was very special. He has since had surgery for his cleft palate, his blind eye removed and all of the rotten teeth removed that were causing him so much pain. We have to say, we didn't think he could get any sweeter, but after he was cleaned up and treated, he did a happy dance ;) Adoption Fee $200.00 If you would like to meet Elvis please apply online at www.RuralAnimalRescueEffort.org. *****AN APPLICATION AND HOME VISIT ARE REQUIRED!***** Please visit www.RuralAnimalRescueEffort.org for foster and adoption applications or for additional information.

Rescue Me ID: 17-01-24-00284Mia (female)

Maine Coon Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Cats 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    I sure wish photos could capture this girl's beauty, as beautiful as she is here, Mia is absolutely breathtaking in person. She is a typical Maine Coon when it comes to humans, as sweet and affectionate as they come. She is however extremely shy when it comes to other cats. Mia goes Missing In Action when other cats are around. We aren't sure if she was attacked or had very bad experiences with other cats as a kitten but she will run and hide when other cats are present. She's never hissed or been mean, we just aren't sure she will ever overcome her fear of other cats, so she might do best as an only cat for right now. if you would like to ...

    SAFE! The shelter is overflowing and Reba must have a foster or adoptive home by Monday, January 23, 2017!!!! HER TIME IS UP!!!! Please contact RARE today if you can help. Reba is waiting at the shelter and needs a foster and/or adoptive home ASAP. Please, Please Help Her!!!!!! Everyone say hello to Reba... or 'Reba Diva' as we like to call her! :) She is the sweetest little girl that you will ever meet! She has been at the shelter now for almost 7 months! She came to us on 6-23-2016 because her previous owner's no longer wanted her... which we have no clue why because she is an absolute sweetheart and loves everyone she meets ... (Read More)INCLUDING KIDS! We know this from experience because she actually went to the Briarwood School with us in October and met all the kids at the school which was an awesome experience for her and the kiddos! Not to mention she did absolutely wonderful with all the kids and they all fell head over heals in love with her! She also does great with other dogs which is also a major plus for her! She is approximately 5 years old and weighs about 36 pounds so she is the perfect size to lay on the couch with you and keep you warm on these cold winter nights! Unfortunately her previous owners did not keep her on heartworm preventative so she does have heartworms, but heartworms are completely treatable, so with the right treatment and a little time and TLC, she will be just fine and will live a long healthy life with a new family! (RARE will treat for heartworms.). But we have to find her the perfect family first so she doesn't end up living her life out here at the shelter because that's just no fair to her. She deserves a warm pillow to lay her head down on at night and a loving family to call her own just as much as other doggies do, so please come meet this sweet girl and help us make her dreams come true! Even if you don't want to adopt her, please share her post so that maybe someone else will see her and read her story and hopefully even fall in love with her and take her home! Sharing is caring so please share with everyone you know! Reba is also safe with cats. Adoption Fee $175.00 **An application and home visit are required.

Rescue Me ID: 17-01-18-00241Lucy (female)

Pointer Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi, my name is Lucy and I'm 4 years old. Two years ago I was rescued by a wonderful retired couple. I bonded very quickly with my daddy, we were always together, like peanut butter and jelly. Sometimes when my parents had to go somewhere, they would take me to doggy daycare, so I wouldn't get lonely. I loved it there, I made many doggie friends and always used good manners like my daddy taught me. One day my mama and daddy decided to take a vacation. They dropped me off at my day care kennel for boarding, gave me hugs and kisses...my daddy never came back for me. When my mama came for me, she told me something very tragic happened and my ... (Read More)daddy was never coming home again. I lost the sparkle in my eyes that day. It's just been me, mama and my favorite grandbabies since then. I love them, and they love me, but I was daddy's little girl and I still miss him. A few weeks ago mama hurt her back and has to have surgery, she can no longer physically take care of me. She sent out pleas for help because she didn't want me going to a kill shelter. My mama cried as a nice lady picked me up two days before the surgery. I cried too, because now I've lost what was left of my family. The nice lady can only keep me a very short time and she asked Miss Trisha for help. Miss Trisha said RARE will help me find my new family, but I need a foster home first. Thank you Miss Trisha, I haven't met you yet but when I do, mucho kisses for you!! Now I need to ask for help from all of you, can you help me get the sparkle back in my eyes?? I've made a list of Things About Me below to help you learn more about me. My name is Lucy, I am 4 years old. I have a special tag my daddy had made for me, it says I Love Lucy on the backside. My daddy was an excellent carpenter. He made me a beautiful kennel with his very own two hands and it will come with me to my new home. I am told I'm a Pointer/Staffordshire Terrier blend, possible with a little cattle dog. I know basic commands but wouldn't mind a few refresher courses to perfect my skills. I listen well and follow directions. I'm house trained and good on a leash. I love to ride in the car with you, I'm a very good passenger. I show a lot of interest in cats, so it's probably best if I'm not around them. I am great with other dogs, but bashful at first, I need to be introduced properly. I love kids. I bond quickly to my person, I like to be with you or where I can see or hear you. I am extremely smart and loving. I like to kiss a lot. I'm not hyper but I am active, I like to play, I need room to run. I prefer to eat my meals without a canine audience but I don't mind at all if my people want to hang around while I eat. I love peanut butter. I will go in a kennel but will cry. Last time my daddy put me in a kennel he never came back, I'm very fearful of them now but do ok if the door is left open. If you can foster me, or would like to adopt me, please contact RARE at ruralanimalrescueeffort@gmail.com or you can fill out a foster or adoption application at www.ruralanimalrescueeffort.org/adopt-foster If you can't foster or adopt, will you please share my story.

Animal ID: Max StaffieMax (male)

American Staffordshire Terrier    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hey guys and gals, I'm Max! I'm so happy to be here! I am about 1 year old American Staffordshire Terrier and I absolutely love people. I am currently in a wonderful foster home with my foster mom and dad and other dogs. I've also been around children and was very well mannered. I am great on leash and good around other dogs, especially with the ladies. I have had great success with my house training and in a routing with crate training and I only use the 'potty' outside. I am NOT good with chickens and I will hurt them, so please, no chickens! I do fine when the dogs and I are playing outside or in the house, but I do have some barrier ... (Read More)issues, so I don't like when there is a gate, fence or crate between me and another dog. It makes me very upset. However, it is certainly something I can be trained on and work through. Good news! - Whoever adopts me into their family will receive a training session with Nikki Ivey/Dog Speak included with my adoption! Unfortunately, my previous 'owners' kept me in an outside kennel, which is the reason for my barrier issues. Also, as time went on, I started to get so bored and just wanted to be with people, so I escaped my kennel at my old home and killed a neighbor's chicken. My people were so upset that they were planning on shooting me that afternoon. They didn't understand that all I wanted was some attention and love and to not be kept in solitary all day and that many dogs, if given the change, will kill a chicken. I really didn't realize that I did anything wrong, I swear! It was a miracle when a RARE foster agreed to take me in because I had torn my cruciate ligament. Thankfully, now I am able to have surgery to repair it and be able to play again without any pain. I don't have to wait to be adopted, I just need a family to let me rest and recoup for a few weeks before I start to play again. My surgery is scheduled for 1/19/2017, so please send good vibes my way! And don't hesitate to inquire about me and complete the adoption application at RuralAnimalRescueEffort.org! Please apply online at www.rurralanimalreacueeffort.org/adopt-foster. My adoption fee is $200 and a training session with the amazing Nikki Ivey with Dog Speak is included with my adoption (a $200 value)! **Max is up to date on vaccinations and neutered and will be microchipped prior to adoption.

I want to be part of a family and not just be "owned" by one. My foster mom says that I give the best kisses, I just need to contain how excited I get because I love people SO SO much! If you are looking for a super friendly, all around fun girl with a great temperament, then look no further! Apply for me today so we can meet!

Lab Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Heartworm Positive 

    Hello! My name is Abraham, and I was found abandoned and I was taken to very poor dog 'pound' with rusty bars and no heat or air conditioning. Luckily, RARE saved me and I am now at the President's home in foster care! How exciting!! My piercing amber eyes are the dreamiest and I have been told that I am even more handsome in person because of my gorgeous, shiny black coat. I am only about 18 months old, so I am full of energy and absolutely love to play ball, and do all sorts of active, outdoorsy activity, but I am also house trained and will chew on my rope ball, rope bone and other chew toys to amuse myself and keep occupied. I love ... (Read More)laying on my dog bed and rolling on the floor to make my foster mom laugh. I am also crate trained. I love other dogs, but sometimes I am a little to exuberant for dominant males. I can be cat tested as well if you have cats in your home and are thinking of making me part of your family, so just email RARE and ask, or even better, 'get the ball rolling' and complete an application online today at RuralAnimalRescueEffort.org! I'd love for you to make an appointment to come and meet me, so what are you waiting for?! I would also like you to know that I am heartworm positive, but RARE will cover my treatment, at no additional cost to my adopter above my adoption fee of $200.00. Heartworms are treatable and dogs can live healthy, fulfilling, and amazing lives after treatment. Please don't let this stop you from considering me as part of your family. We will be happy to answer any questions that you may have! *****AN APPLICATION AND HOME VISIT ARE REQUIRED***** Please visit www.RuralAnimalRescueEffort.org for foster and adoption applications or for additional information.

    There's just something about a set of perfect ears on a dog that always bring a smile to my face!! Meet Kendrick, he's a happy little guy, about 2 yrs, weighing in at a solid 46 pounds. Kendrick's stocky little body is sporting some fiercely cute ears and a face you can't help but fall in love with!! Kendrick was scheduled to die last week but we managed to pull him, thanks to a foster volunteer. He has been doing well, and getting along with other dogs. He has also been perfection with all of the children he has met. We aren't sure how he responds to cats, but will be happy to test him. Kendrick is an energetic guy, he needs daily ... (Read More)walks, or a fenced in yard to run and play in. He is very intelligent and receptive to commands, making him a highly trainable dog - for anyone willing to work with him. He would be great at agility of any kind, or just learning new tricks to entertain you.

    Hi, I'm Zoey and I'm sure you have met my mini-me daughter Tiny. I know she has already told most of you how we came to rescue, so here is our story again..through my daughters eyes. We used to live...well survive from the kindness of strangers. You see, we were chained in a back yard, we didn't have anything to keep the sun or rain off of us and we didn't have anything to eat. Our tummy's hurt so much and we would cry, we cried all night from hunger. There was a nice family next door, that lived behind a big fence, they heard our cries and started tossing food over the fence for us. Then they must have sneeked a look at us and saw how ... (Read More)skinny we were because they called someone and next thing we knew some wonderful ladies were there taking us to a place that was warm, dry and had plenty of food for us to eat and they give us love here. We know now that heros, really do exist. As you can tell I'm smooth chow mix but what you may not realize is Chows are great dogs, they are quiet, clean, beautiful, loving, loyal, smart and have awesome purple tongues. The ladies here aren't sure what I am mixed with but they say I have an amazingly friendly personality, I love everyone and have shown no issues whatsoever.

I may look muscular and stocky, weighing 50 lbs, but I am a low-rider and a softy at heart.

    My name is Ringo, although I'm not sure if it's because I'm such a rock star or if it's because I have rings on my beautiful tail! I lived on my own for a long time, and several people tried to catch me. Most of them weren't successful, but one young lady managed to snare me. She took me to the vet, and I was vaccinated (ouch!) neutered (whose idea was that?), and loved (YES!). I stayed at the clinic from October until December because there was no place else for me to go. I was a bit shy when I first arrived there, but the vet techs played with me when they could. Since coming to Red Fern, I have made many, many friends, both two-legged and ... (Read More)four. I am great with kids too! I'm no longer at all frightened of people, and I can't wait to belong with someone special. As a bonus, I enjoy walking and am good on a leash. The people at Red Fern tell me every day how much they love me and what a good boy I am. They say I am a calm and happy boy! I know that someone is going to say, 'That's the boy for me!' very soon, and I'll be packing my bones and heading out. Today could be that day! Ringo's adoption fee is $200.00. If you are interested in becoming Ringo's person, please submit an adoption application. Someone from Red Fern will contact you and answer any questions you have about Ringo.

Rescue Me ID: 15-08-19-00223Copper (male)

Pit Bull    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Female Dogs Only, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hey folks!! My name is Copper and I'm a hunka hunka burning love...80 pounds of love that is. I'm a bit of a clown and I enjoy making people laugh...now people...I love me some people. I just can't get enough of having my ears scratched, my nose kissed and my belly rubbed, but when it comes to dogs, I am a ladies man and like to be around a submissive female. I'm ok with cats though. I really love kids too but I get excited at the site of them and just want to run over and kiss them and play. The problem is, I'm such a big boy, and somewhat of a clutz at times.I'm afraid my excitement may cause me to knock them down accidentally. My foster ... (Read More)mama says I'd be best with older kids, that weigh more than me. A home with a fenced yard would be a dream come true, because I sure would love to run and play off leash. If you have a BIG bed, that would be an added bonus, a boy has got to have room to stretch while he's protecting you from bed bugs. The only bug that should be in the bed is a love bug and that would be ME. If you'd like to adopt me please apply online at http://www.adoptapet.com/rural-animal-rescue-effort-rare/adoption-application-2/ Home visit, application and vet reference is required. Transport can be arranged at no additional cost. **Copper is UTD on vaccinations, on heartworm preventative, neutered and micro-chipped. Transport can be arranged to approved home or an approved foster (Less)
