Meet beautiful Coco. She’s a 1-year-old Chi Mix baby girl. She’s a Devore Shelter Survivor who we saved within minutes of Euthanasia. Shelters are overflowing which put her life in danger.
Coco was labeled “fearful” at the shelter. The shelter is a very scary place, especially for a baby dog like her. She’s safe with us now and still acclimating to her foster home.
Coco is sweet and affectionate once she feels safe and trusts. She loves dogs and loves to play with dogs of all sizes. She's a sassy girl, she's spunky, she's resilient, and can handle her own out in the playground. She's definitely an alpha and a leader.
She loves her tiny squeaky ball and she loves to play fetch. She loves to sleep next to her humans and burrow under the sheets. She's a foodie! She loves to eat and she's very treat motivated!
She’s doing great with her housebreaking and is still learning to trust humans and be comfortable with new experiences. She’s a sweet and gentle baby girl once she feels safe. She loves her foster dad and dances around him when he gets home from work. She melts in his arms and covers him with kisses.

These Heroes are either in Medical care or Rehab for Behavioral or Trauma issues. When we break out a hero from the Shelter, very little is known and without getting a full vet exam, we can't forecast what medical or behavioral issues we will need to treat.
No matter the case, our squad places them in the care of experienced foster families that will patiently and lovingly nurture and instill trust and safety into their rehabilitation and healing.
Our Medical Heroes have health ailments that require short or long-term medical treatment. Epilepsy, Collapsed Tracheas, severe Arthritis, Skin Issues, and Ear/Respiratory Challenges. They require regular Vet visits, after-care treatment, and medicine to be administered every day.
Our Behavioral Heroes have scars that can't be seen on the surface. Many have endured abuse, horrific living conditions, are feral, have been used as bait dogs, or have been let down or mistreated by humans. We have to go at their pace and with love and patience, we strive to make progress every day.
Behavioral Rehab requires special equipment/gear, calming oils, sessions with a professional trainer (once they are ready), and whatever it takes to help them rehabilitate to a state where they are able to transition into their forever home.
Our Rehab Heroes are Available to Adopt. It takes a special Heart to adopt a Rehab Hero and continue to nurture them and pick up where we left off. Illness aside, and behavioral issues aside, they still love us unconditionally, even through their fears and challenges. Love always wins!
Your donation helps us meet their ongoing medical needs and supply them with the necessary tools to assist them in their rehabilitation.
Traditionally, we personally respond to each submission received. However, due to the current high volume of applications/adoptions, you will receive an acknowledgment/receipt email of your submission. ⠀
Because we know each of our heroes personally and know the best setting for them to thrive in, we will ONLY contact applications that best match their requisite needs. ⠀
We thank you in advance for your interest to adopt one of our heroes and for your patience through the process.
Thank you for choosing to rescue!
