All of our adoptable pets are housed with foster families. When age appropriate, they have been spay/neutered, crate, leash and house trained. They have all been living in a family environment so have been evaluated for temperament and personality. We believe that we should know each pet well enough to make sure that when adopted, everyone lives happily ever after.

Matilda "Tilda" was abandoned when her owners moved their trailer ahead of flooding predicted for Hurricane Isaac. Neighbors fed Matilda and Rickshaw (possibly her sibling) until we could rescue them. Both little dogs were friendly and affectionate, if a bit timid. Matilda has been with us since then so that she could complete heart worm treatment and she has just blossomed. She is happy and healthy and a bit of an imp. She may be shy at first meeting but then, LOOK OUT. She considers every lap hers for the taking. And she isn't above sneaking up and nipping (very gently) you on the pants leg or butt for attention. It is so cute. She is also great company for a Helendsi
