Foster update!

Rosita (aka Rosie) is a little sweetie! Despite the rough start she and her litter mates had, she loves everyone. She does well with kids, people & other dogs. She is generally quiet, highly food motivated and eager to please. She is working on house training, but does fine in a crate for a few hours at a time, as well as at night.  She travels well in the car and enjoys getting out on adventures to new places. 

Rosita and her siblings were brought into the shelter in Austin neglected and in really rough shape. They were covered in scabs, lesions and hair loss. They have undergone multiple skin scrapes to determine the cause. It is believed to be a severe case of flea dermatitis (allergy to flea bites). Their fur is starting to grow back in and with continued care and healthy diets they will be the black beauties they were meant to be.

*The pet you are viewing is a rescued pet which is most often from an animal control facility and does not come with a pedigree. The breed(s) listed are our best guess and are in no way guaranteed. Sometimes the pets appear to be a particular breed(s) in the pictures we receive from our rescue partners and when they arrive we are surprised to see an entirely different breed(s) in person!  If you choose to DNA test your adopted pet, test results may vary from company to company and our breed guess may not be reflected in those results as it is just that, our best guess. It is with deep longing that we wish there was a breed called "cute" as we believe all of our dogs would fall under this new breed classification!

Completion of an Adoption Application via our website is the best way to show your interest in an animal and is the first step in our adoption process. 

*Animals who are not fully vaccinated and altered are not eligible for long distance adoption.

When you adopt a pet from Midwest Animal Rescue and Services, your adoption fee covers: Microchip and registration, Core Vaccines including Rabies, Distemper and bordetella, age appropriate heartworm testing or FeLV-FIV testing, sterilization, heartworm/flea-tick prevention and deworming while in foster care. 

Adoption fees are non-negotiable and can be paid by cashier's check, money order or credit card. We do not accept personal checks or cash.

Any issues that arise after adoption are the full responsibility of the adopter after the finalization of adoption. Adoption fees are only part of the expense of owning a pet, so we ask you to consider the costs for the life of the pet before adoption. We recommend pet insurance.
