Barkingly, you the day is Friday and a pawsome weekend is ahead when "Lab Lady" brings a pair of barkingly grand Labrador Retrievers to meet you!  Meet Nila and Redi!

Nila and Redi are friendly and like to be with humans and being petted. They are looking for a home with a fenced yard where they can play, exercise and run!

Nila is the laid back one and the leader of the two! BARKS! The pair are pawsome to watch as they live in the moment and have the typical Lab happiness!  They are like two peas in a pod sharing the same food dish even though they have separate ones. Where one goes, the other isn't too far behind. They are dependent on each other and looking for affirmation from the other.

Nila and Redi know some basic commands. They are learning to walk on a leash. The two are crate and house trained.

The pawsome pair have no cat history. They are good with other dogs and are recommended for mini-humans ages 10 and older.

Nila and Redi will have a training addendum so they can be all the bestest dog they can be! They are up-to-date on vaccinations and preventatives. Barkingly, they are heartworm positive. Lab Rescue will provide their Heartworm treatment, at no cost to the adopter, at one of their designated vets.

Interested in meeting Nila and Redi or applying to adopt them? Please complete the Lab Rescue Adoption Application.

The adoption fee for bonded pairs has been reduced for a limited time to help keep them together. Please consider adopting a pair of Labs and enjoy Double the Love.

WOOF! BARKS! er, Meow! Hiss? or purr?!? I have had an pawsome time catching up with my friend "Cat Lady" and meeting two friends she brought by to meet you!

Meet my friend Carolina! She is a pawsomely sweet, loving and playful young lady who, along with her sister Isabella, came from Puerto Rico to find humans to love and their "Forever Home!"

Carolina enjoys playing with her sister Isabella! She is an excellent soccer player and enjoys surprising her sister by jumping out from behind something!

Carolina will do best in a home with a playmate or her sister Isabella.

Isabella is a playful, curious and very loving girl.  She loves cuddling and will sit on her foster mom's foot while dinner is being prepared.

Isabella loves dragging her wand toy all over her room and playing soccer with Carolina.

Isabella will do best in a home with a playmate or her sister Carolina.

Carolina and Isabella are healthy and up-to-date on age appropriate vaccinations, dewormings, and are spayed.

A note from our friends at PetConnect Rescue: The adoption fee for these kittens is $135 each which helps with the cost of routine Veterinarian care.  Cats adopted through PetConnect Rescue must be indoor only, and may not be declawed (unless already declawed at the time of rescue).

The first step in PetConnect Rescue approving adoption applicants is to complete a Veterinarian check. Vetting of current and past pets is very important so they will be speaking with the Veterinarian(s) listed on your application to ensure that your current and previous pet(s) are kept up to date on vaccines (including rabies), spayed or neutered and examined annually by a Veterinarian.

America’s Most and Least Adoptable Dogs

With the 11th year on the record, it’s not secret for pet lovers that Labrador Retriever is America’s most adoptable dog. In 2017, AKC once again ranked this breed as the most popular canine in the US, with German Shepherd and Golden Retriever trailing close behind, while the rankings for many other breeds have changed and continue to switch places every year.

However, no matter their popularity, some of these breeds are so prevalent that they still rank as the least adoptable dogs according to rescue organizations. For example, Pit Bulls and Chihuahuas are known to be very common in animal shelters due to the public’s perception of these breeds, but the rankings do not reflect the reality of adoption of these breeds.

One common type of the bully breed – Staffordshire Pit Bull Terrier – was ranked as 80th most popular this year, while Chihuahuas are high up at the 30th position. Both breeds are often found in shelters and the staff says that they will be the last to get adopted. Top Dog Tips has put together an infographic of the most popular breeds in America in 2017, and how they all fair against each other. Take a look at it below and maybe consider some of the breeds from the bottom as your next rescue pet.
