Adopt a Pet




We have historically seen a low adoption rate on our heartworm positive dogs, despite their amazing personalities!

In hopes of finding this deserving boy his forever home, we are reducing his adoption fees to $400.**

Meet Nelson! Our best guess is that this handsome fellow is a lab mix and approximately 3 years old. Nelson just finished his heartworm treatment and needs to take it easy for a little while, but otherwise has a full and happy life ahead of him!

Nelson takes some time to warm up to his people, but once he does, he wants nothing more than to follow you around! Nelson has been doing so great in his foster home, he had so much fun on their outing to cut down a Christmas tree! He would love to find his forever home where he can continue to learn, play and grow! Nelson would do best in a home without young kids as he continues to grow his confidence.

If the dog is listed on our website or Petfinder, they are still available! We are a volunteer-run organization and appreciate your patience. Pet Rescue Alliance does our best to provide accurate information about the dogs we have available for adoption. We cannot make any guarantees about age, breed or temperament. If you're not in a position to adopt at the moment but want to ensure our dogs can find their forever homes, please consider donating what you can to their care: Thank you!
