Meet Mater!

Mater is a cute senior Chihuahua that is approximately 7 years old. He was surrendered to ADORE because his owner simply didn’t want to take him to the new house. He was with another dog who has since been adopted, not it’s Mater’s turn! He was neglected and we found out he’s heartworm positive, but is finishing the very last part of his treatment. He is ready to go into a new home that won’t ignore him. He is good with other dogs, we aren’t sure how he is with cats, but since he’s tiny we think he would be okay with kitties. Since he has been moved around and was in boarding, he’s initially shy and unsure about what you’re going to do to him, but once he warms up you will get gentle kisses and cuddles!

Our fosters do something remarkable:
They take in a rescue animal who may have
never experienced love, care and security before
and help that pet get ready
for his or her forever home.
