Home for the Holidays?

Zooey is looking for a temporary home for the Holidays. Can you open up your heart and home to her? 

Zooey was found tied outside the pound and quickly became the staff favorite. Her foster family need to be out-of-town from Dec. 9th through Jan. 14 and we are desperately looking for someone to foster this 39 lb cutie during that time so she does not have to be kenneled again. She enjoys playing, car rides, toys and well pretty much anything. But what she enjoys the most is just being by her person/people. She craves soft strokes and eye contact and makes it so easy for you to give both. Everywhere you go people gravitate to her and she is wonderful with all. In her home she can become somewhat protective so a quiet home is best or a home that knows how to manage this behavior.
Simply crating her is a solution and she is crate trained, housetrained and non-destructive. She does not require a lot of exercise but does enjoy her walks. She is good with other dogs if met slowly and properly. She is living with a male pit bull & doing very well- even though she is a bit of a prima-donna. No dogs or cats would be ideal for this temporary home simply so it would be seamless. She enjoys being the center of attention and needs to learn no matter how cute she is that she must share.

Dogs up for Adoption- Greyson & Zoey

Mary Lou of All Dog Rescue has two beautiful dogs that she is fostering in Gloucester that are up for adoption. Greyson & Zoey are absolutely gorgeous! I have always had a soft spot in my heart for pit pulls, they get such a bad rap but all of the pit bulls I have ever met are just big cuddle bugs! Let’s help these two find their forever home.

About Greyson: 

“OK, by now you know from Greyson’s pictures that he is an extremely handsome boy. But what you don’t know is that he is as sweet and wonderful on the inside as well. He is new to rescue and we are still getting to know him but we have discovered he loves car rides, toys, playing with other dogs, cuddles and his walks. He has beautiful sparkling amber eyes, beautiful blue/grey fur and a wiggly butt and tail that is constantly going. He is fun, sweet, playful and affectionate. He weighs about 55 pounds and is around 2 years old. Athletic outside, calm and mannered inside the house. He likes to please so will likely be a quick learner. He adjusted very quickly to his new surroundings which is an indication of his adaptability and calm nature. To be the best dog he can be he will need a leader that will help socialize him and re-direct his enthusiasm when new people come to visit. This handsome Blue Pit Bull is waiting patiently for his forever home. He will make a wonderful companion in life. Because of his size, he is best in a household without young children.”

About Zoey:

“Zoey was found tied to the air conditioner shaft outside the pound and quickly became the staff favorite. She is a sweetheart with those real ‘puppy dog eyes’.  She enjoys playing with other dogs, car rides, toys and well, pretty much anything. She is one of those dogs that just enjoys being with her person. She would benefit with some basic training to make her the best dog she can be (as would any dog). She crates well, is housetrained, weighs in at 39 pounds.  She is soft and cuddly and speaking of cuddles can give and receive them all day long. She is being fostered with Greyson another of our dogs and doing very well-even though she is a bit of a prima-donna. She enjoys being the center of attention and needs to learn no matter how cute she is that she must share. She was in the pound for 2 months before we were able to take her. Be prepared for people to stop you on the street if you get this one, she is one of those dogs people just have to pet. She’s a real charmer!!”

Tips to Help Find Your Lost Pet

Mary Lou Maraganis of All Dog Rescue and Co-founder of the Gloucester Dog Park shares some information on the Saber network, and educates us on the Pitbull Breed.

She also shares these tips for helping your find your lost pet. She recommends you keep a copy of this list with your important pet records, incase it ever happens to you, you’ll have the steps to follow:


Pets should always be wearing Collar and Tags

Microchip your pet and update address when you move!!

Get the Word out Immediately. Don’t wait for “Lassie” to come home. Use the
Internet, flyers, posters on cars.

Saber Alert (works much like child Amber Alert)

Call Animal shelters, ACO, Police daily- Don’t give up

Search internet for ‘lost dog site’ ‘how to find my lost dog’ ‘recovery tips for
lost dog’ . There are lots of sites where you can not only list your dog but get
wonderful tips on what to do. Doing something constructive like this can often
times empower you. Tips on where to search, time to search, what to bring with
you, different pet behaviors…

Sites to Ultilize:

Wwww.missingpetpartnership.org Excellent site with innovation ideas and tips.
Think Lost not Stray- simply not enough time for people to find them.


http://www.lostdogsearch.com Based in Southeastern Ma- one person show

Expecting grieving, brokenhearted people who are not trained or equipped to
search for their own missing pet does not make sense. Lost dog searchers are
often under an enormous amount of stress and tend to forget advice, ignore
suggestions and waste precious time. Owners behavior is often grief avoidance,
helplessness and feeling alone-simply don’t know what to do.
