Age: 8 years

Weight: ?? pounds (weight coming)

State: St. Louis area

Contact: Lynn O’Shaughnessy, 517-546-8303,

Alvin is a new boy in rescue that needs a foster or better yet, a forever home.  We need to move him in the next couple of weeks and he cannot go to a kennel.   Alvin has Addison’s disease and the stress of a kennel would be too much for him.   

Despite his health challenge,  Alvin is still a happy boy with lots of love to give.  He is good around children and other dogs large and small.  Not sure about cats.  He loves being around people and would do best with someone who has a family member around most of the day.  SOAR has a special fund that can help with ongoing medications if that should be needed.  Please contact Lynn ASAP if you can give Alvin the loving home that he needs.  Thank you so much!

Irish (14-013-OH) - Adoption Pending

WANTED: Human male adopter to bond with!

My name is Irish and I'm 8.5 years young.  I am looking for a family of my own and I need to find one soon.  I cannot stay with my foster mom and do not want to go into a kennel.  You see, I have displaced kneecaps.  SOAR has done so much to get me better.  I need your help to stay that way.  Please say that you will take me in.  If you can foster me, that would be great.  If you end up being my forever family, that would be even better.

I would love to have a male human to bond with.  Even though I have foster doggie siblings, I'd much rather have a home all to myself, except for a human male to bond with, of course!  My foster momma has been great but she can tell I am missing a man presence in my life.  I promise I'll even share my male human with his significant other.  I absolutely love car rides, walks where I can explore new places, being silly with my big red plastic ball toys, and meeting new people. 

SOAR has a special fund if you need some financial assistance for my medical needs.  Please consider giving me a chance.  Let’s talk!  Will you be the one to help me make new memories?

You can view a video of my transformation on the link below. I am the handsome one in case you can’t tell.  ;-)
