Special Pets In Need

Elmer & Hiker


Elmer and Hiker were taken from a hoarding
situation where the backyard breeder paid no
attention to any of the dogs. Elmer and Hiker
came from a pack of 69 dogs and had never
been socialized. Both of these boys are kind
spirited,and extremely shy. When we rescued
them from a local kill shelter we were hoping
that they would come out of their shells and
be ready for adoption within a few months,
this is not the case. Though they have
come a long way, they still need alot of
rehabilitation. Both boys are most comfortable
in a group of dogs where they blossom with
personality. Volunteers are working with
them daily, taking them for short walks
around the property or having them spend
time inside on a one on one basis.

CARES is not a sanctuary, we save more
lives when those in our care are adopted
and we can rescue more from death row.
CARES usually does not adopt to families
if the dog is going to be kept outside,
but both these boys were thrive with the
freedom of living outside as long as they
had ample shelter(large enough for both).
