  • Adopted Murdock in December 2006 when he was 10 Mos old. He has been the best boy ever! We just learned he has Lymphoma & are devasted. I can't imagine life without him & am hoping he responds well to treatment and lives many more months!!

  • I lost my best friend, Evie, a year ago September. I adopted her in 2006, she was 2 years old. That sweet girl was the love of my life and I miss her dearly. Thank you MAESSR for bringing that beautiful dog into my life.

    What “Status” Means For a Foster Dog

    On HOLD: MAESSR keeps all dogs "on hold" for a minimum of two weeks from the date it enters foster care. The dog may then continue “on hold,” pending completion of medical or training needs.  During this time, each dog is vetted (ie, spayed/neutered, microchipped, brought up-to-date on vaccines, HW tested, fecal tested and treated for any ailments found during the vet check), housetrained and work on basic manners is completed.  An exception is little puppies as they have just begun learning.  A dog may continue “on hold” for training needs.
    AVAILABLE: A dog becomes “available” when evaluation and vetting are complete.  At this point the dog is ready for placement but has not been offered to a specific family.  When a dog is “available”, approved families are welcome to inquire about the dog through the adoption coordinators.
    OFFERED: When a dog is “offered,” the adoption coordinators have matched the dog to an approved family on the waiting list.  Families are only on the approved list once they have had their interview, all screening has been completed and they have received email from one of the application coordinators stating that they have been approved and have been added to the waiting list.  When a dog is “offered,” the family receiving the offer is put in touch with the foster family and they have the opportunity to discuss the dog to determine if it is a good match for them.
    ADOPTION PENDING: A dog that is “adoption pending” has been offered to a pre-approved family and the family has accepted the offer.  All that remains is working out the details of transfer to the new home.
    PERMANENT FOSTER:
    This dog will remain in the permanent care of MAESSR due to various reasons and will not be offered for adoption.
    HEALTH LINE Details:
                                UTD : 
    The dog has received all necessary vaccinations.
                                HW- :   The dog has tested free of heartworm disease.
                                HW+:   The dog tested positive for heartworm disease and is being treated by MAESSR.
                                UTI  :   The dog has a urinary tract infection and is being treated for this medical issue.
