These are our current Adopt-A-Pet fosters:
Thurston and Lovey – The k9 Howell’s.
Sit right back and we’ll tell you their tale: Lovey and Thurston were found by a jogger at a park called Lover’s Leap in Southern Illinois. Not a place two tiny senior dogs would wander off to on their own, so they were most likely left there by some uncaring person. A rescue person put them in a foster home after no one showed up to claim them at the local animal shelter. The foster home reports that they are both super sweet and well mannered. They are friendly, but not necessarily lap dogs demanding a lot of attention, as they are content doing their own thing. They are house-trained if kept on a regular schedule and taken out every few hours.
Lovey is a Chihuahua and Thurston is a Chugg (chihuahua/pug), and they weigh in at less than 15 pounds total! As you can see, their cuteness factor is off the charts!
Just like the Howells on Gilligan’s Isle, these two senior citizens now await rescue again where they can live out their golden years in love and comfort. Because they are a senior bonded pair, they have to be adopted together. They are looking for that special someone with room in their heart and home who will give these two their truly forever home, and never leave them stranded again. Thurston appears to be a tad younger than Lovey (estimated to be about 9 and 11 years, respectively). They appear in decent health considering their age, and still looking forward to many good years ahead, with tons of love and gratitude to give.
Their adoption fee of $175 each ($350 total) includes: comprehensive vet exam, heartworm test, DAPP (distemper combo) vaccination, Bordetella vaccination, Rabies vaccination, flea/tick preventative, heartworm preventative, deworming, microchip, dental cleaning for Thurston, and spay/neuter.
Meet Pixel! He was found in a shelter in Missouri, and scooped up by our rescue contact once she realized how sweet he is. We don’t know for sure but he looks like a Chihuahua, and weighs a whopping 11 pounds.
He was in a foster home for a week, and his foster mom tells us he is 90% house-trained, and gets along fine with other dogs once he gets to know them. But we think he would be happiest as the only dog in the family, so he doesn’t have to share his people. In fact, he LOVES PEOPLE! Everyone he meets is his new best friend.
Stay tuned as we learn more, but don’t wait too long. This pint-size Pixel is sure to bring the perfect picture of happiness to the right person.
His adoption fee of $325 includes exam, DAPP distemper combination vaccination, Bordetella vaccination, rabies vaccination, flea/tick preventative, heartworm test (negative) and preventative, deworming, microchip and neuter.
We have everything you need to get started, and, when you adopt any dog (whether they’re fostered here or elsewhere), you’ll get a coupon book filled with tons of savings.

We are one of the many foster homes for Adopt-A-Pet, and rarely know the adoption status of these dogs. You can see all of the animals that Adopt-A-Pet has and contact them regarding the availability of a particular dog on their main site here.
