MARCH 15, 2020: LIFE AS WE KNOW IT IS CHANGING BY THE HOUR DUE TO THE COVID-19/CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC. WHILE AAMR IS STILL COMMITED TO GETTING PUPS INTO NEW FOREVER HOMES, OUR ADOPTION PROCESS IS IN A TEMPORARY HOLDING PATTERN. EACH OF OUR ADOPTIONS REQUIRES A HOME VISIT AND WE DO NOT WANT TO PUT ANY VOLUNTEERS OR POTENTIAL ADOPTERS AT RISK BY DOING THESE VISITS AT THIS TIME. WE ARE CONTINUING TO ACCEPT APPLICATIONS FROM THOSE WHO ARE WILLING TO WAIT UNTIL THE HEALTH RISKS HAVE PASSED TO BE ABLE TO GET THEIR NEW FAMILY MEMBER. WE WILL CONTINUE TO FOLLOW CDC GUIDELINES AND VA STATE REGULATIONS REGARDING LIMITING CONTACT WITH THOSE OUTSIDE OUR HOMES. WE APPRECIATE YOUR PATIENCE.

In the great words of my favorite Pedigree commercial . . .
"Shelter dogs aren't broken, they've simply experienced more life than other dogs. If they were human, we would call them wise. They would be the ones with tales to tell and stories to write, the ones dealt a bad hand who responded with courage. Don't pity a shelter dog.... Adopt one. And be proud to have their greatness by your side."

Our Every Day Wish List ...
Dog food (we use mostly no grain dry food, high quality foods with no corn, wheat or soy)
Milk Bone dog treats (prefer the minis and smalls)
Cleaning supplies - especially bleach and Odo-Ban
Durable toys such as Kongs, Nylabones, Bully Sticks, and hard rubber toys that will withstand heavy chewing and bleach sanitizing
Statistically it is more difficult for rescues to place animals over 2 years old, animals with any special physical or medical needs, animals of certain breeds, and animals that are black - especially if they are also large.
But we believe 'Less Adoptable' Pets Rule
Here are just a few reasons we love "special" pets:
* Older pets are mellower - you don't have to worry about your lamp getting knocked over!
* Physically challenged pets are often unaffected by their handicap - but you still look like a hero when you rescue them!
* With "bad reputation" breeds, you get the chance to prove people wrong with your great dog!
* Dark-furred pets make it easy to accessorize - black goes with everything!
* Pets with behavioral issues allow you to form a tight bond as you overcome obstacles together!
* Big dogs are easier to find when it's time to go to the vet!
