Special Needs:

Asha has mobility problems due to her overweight status and her arthritis. She would do best in a home with no stairs. She will need to be on daily supplements and pain medication.


Asha was a stray in a small rural southern animal control where the animal control officer said, “we might as well put her down, no one will come for an old dog to adopt or rescue”. We just didn’t agree and had to save her. Asha is probably 10-12 years old and is the happiest overweight dog on earth. She has arthritis and mobility issues due to her size and age, but both will improve as she loses weight slowly and after she has had a little time on supplements and pain medications that she started when she arrived at our rescue. She is fine with other dogs, we doubt she could have an issue with cats and even if she did she certainly couldn’t catch one! Asha lost her family through no fault of her own and now finds herself with strangers at the end of her life. She would be happiest in a family without a lot of chaos and noise. She would be fine with quiet, gentle children, and would make a fine reading buddy for a small child. Asha will have had a complete physical, blood tests, and all of her immunizations updated prior to adoption. We are hoping to place Asha quickly so she can settle in with her forever family to not miss a single minute being the spoiled loved baby she deserves to be. Would you like to meet Asha and add her to your family? is the first step. Your own pets must be up to date on vaccines, heart worm negative and on preventative, indoor pets, and spayed/neutered. A home visit is a part of this adoption process. Asha’s adoption fee is adopter’s choice due to her age and special needs. Adoption fees are used to pay for a dog’s vet bills, we ask that her adopter consider this in their donation. Asha will go home with a month’s worth of any medications or supplements she is on, food, collar, and a whole countries worth of love and hope. She is fostered in central Illinois.
