Notes: Dusty, Chiweenie (Chihuahua/Dachshund mix), male, 4 years. Dusty is a perfect little dog who came to us recently from a NC shelter where he was found as a stray. Not only is he adorable, but he is super sweet and very playful. Dusty is very loving, happy, and would love to become your perfect pet. He absolutely adores being with his human, and enjoys the company of other small dogs. Fully grown at just 12 pounds, he is a perfect size for most homes. Dusty is in good health, neutered, microchipped, and fully vaccinated. That said, he has tested positive for heart worms and we have begun the soft kill method of eradication as he is completely asymptomatic. This treatment is effective and all medications will accompany him to his new home. We are seeking a home with an adopter who has the ability to work from home or be at home a good part of each day to spend time with this amazing dog. A home without larger pets or small children, and with a fenced, secure yard will give Dusty the room to run and play safely.

CARE Rescue is a private, non-profit, all volunteer organization. The only opportunity to meet our adoptable animals is at an adoption event, held weekly, in the Richmond, VA area. See the events calendar on website.

Our adoption process starts with your email to carerescue@aol.com or Petfinder inquiry. After we receive it, we will email you our pre-screening questionnaire. Your answers will help us determine that your home and lifestyle matches the needs of both the dog and our adoption criteria. Once determined, we will set up a private meeting with you and your family to meet the dog at a park near our private kennel just east of Richmond. After meeting the dog and determining that it matches your preferences for a pet, we will accept your application. A home visit by one of our trained volunteers is required for all adoptions, and we will speak with your vet to ensure that you are a responsible pet owner. More information on our website.

We reserve the right to deny an adoption to any one for any reason.

We do not place our animals in homes with preschool aged children and are careful with size differences in animals. A constructed fenced yard will be required for most adoptions.

A home visit is required for all adoptions. Generally we require adopters to live within 100 miles of Richmond.

We will request, and rely upon, a veterinary reference. We will check to see if your previous and/or current animals were spayed or neutered, kept up to date with vaccines and hearworm meds.
