Porkchop is a sweet 5 year old boy. He’s as beautiful as his personality. He is a paraplegic. On August 6th, 2013, he ruptured his L1 vertebrae due to IVDD. He has been in a cart since. However, this sweet boy has no problem getting around. He loves to keep up with the rest of them. He unfortunately has no bladder or bowel control. You can use diapers or pads to help with this. As a result he is prone to UTIs and is currently on antibiotics recovering from one. He will need his bladder expressed every 4-6 hrs. He howls when he makes a mess to let you know he needs his area cleaned. He is very happy and loves to be around people. He enjoys going outside to get fresh air and to play. He seems to be putting on weight and is getting stronger. He is the sweetest little boy. He has a great temperament and is great with kids and dogs. He’s a love bug.
Porkchop’s donation will be $250. If you are the perfect home for Porkchop, be sure you have an application in with us and then send a detailed email explaining how your home is Porkchop’s forever home to email@example.com
IRue (5 1/2yo SF) is a very sweet girl with lots of energy and love to give. She really enjoys going for walks about 3-4 times a day. We are working on her manners, she is strong and she pulls and barks when cars go by. She does not like cars at all (she hates windshield wipers) she does not do well riding in the car and she wants to chase cars that drive by when walking. Rue does not need to be crated, she is housebroken and I have had no problems with leaving her free to roam during the days. She likes to sleep in the bed at night, but doesn’t hog it or snore which is nice!
She does not like to share her things or her space too much. I have introduced her to other dogs both inside and out. She seems to do better outside, but can still be somewhat aggressive if she is approached too quickly by another dog. She would do best as an only pet. She has not met any cats, but she likes to chase squirrels and bunnies so I don’t know how well she’d do with cats. She has met a few kids on our walks and has been gentle with them. My favorite thing about Rue is her giant smile and her sweet personality. She is always very happy to see me when I get home. She always wants to be pet and loved, yet she does have a bit of an independent side too.
She is very vocal and has no problem telling you when she wants something. It seems as though she has some anxiety about loud noises and traffic so I think she’d do best in a quiet home with a backyard. She also gets anxiety about being left home. I usually give her a few treats before I leave and that seems to help. Rue is a very energetic lady and she will no doubt make someone a wonderful companion! She is completely healthy, has been vetted, and is up to date on her vaccines.
Rue’s adoption fee will be $500. Please be sure to have an application on file and then send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org telling us why you are the perfect forever home for Rue.
$1 can make a huge difference. So when you are addressing and stamping your holiday cards, label an envelope to RMFBR and throw $1 in it. That easy. You don’t even have to send the card! On Christmas Day, I will put all the addresses in an drawing for a cool prize. Check back here to see who won!
Taz must be an only dog. He is so incredible with people. He spends hours just curled up next to me. He is not aggressive, but rather hyper-vigilant around other animals. It does not matter the size of the dog. Taz has had no stability in his life and his poor self-esteem comes out as defensive offense.
You can follow more on Taz and donate to his care here: Taz
If you are available to foster and have no other pets or children under 12, please fill out the application.
Sweet and spunky Taz still needs a foster!
Taz is not good with other dogs.
Ideal home will be with a human he can trust. He is amazing with people.
Taz was a stray who has been in an outside shelter in KS for months. He is safe in a temporary home at RMFBR but desperately needs a foster home.
He is almost deaf and is missing an eye. His teeth are broken and rotted so they are being removed in stages.
He deserves the best life.
Can you help?
The local small town Kansas shelter had previously been involved with Taz and Bridgette when they had been locked in a bathroom and starved.
A few months ago, the shelter found them wandering the streets in severe neglect. The shelter tried to press charges against the owner this time and Taz and Bridgette were stuck in the outside kennels while the law sorted it out. They decided to drop the charges and told the shelter “just euthanize those old dogs”.
So we stepped in. Now we need you.
Taz’s teeth are rotting and broken. We caught this just in time as an abscess was building under his gums. Almost half his teeth were removed yesterday and more dental surgeries are scheduled. He is also missing an eye from being attacked by a dog and is mostly deaf.
Bridgette will be getting her dental on Tuesday. She also has a large open mass/wound to be removed Tuesday. She has had an open wound for who knows how long.
These two have spent their 8 or 9 years fighting for their lives. We are trying to give them peace in their twilight years. They are both incredibly sweet and amazing dogs. They deserve love and comfort. Can you help us get them healthy?

Opal came to me from her before home, where she had “small person” syndrome. Meaning she would pick on dogs bigger than her! She has a lot of bark, but no bite. Which makes her a great protector and a fun addition to the family. She is the sweetest and most relaxed french bulldog that I had the pleasure of fostering. She took a week to get adjusted to me, but after that, she welcomes you home with a big smile, and greeting at the door. Opal loves to chase bunnies, and birds around the neighborhood when we go out on walks, so make sure she’s on a leash, before she goes out! She’s not found of big dogs, and has issues seeing or being around them. Opal is a great dog that will cuddle up to you on the couch, and play catch for short periods of time, she likes her walks at night and in the morning, where its cool and peaceful. Opal needs a one dog home, where she can be the center of attention, and the Queen of her domain!
Opal needs a home with no other dogs. No exceptions.
Opal’s donation fee will be $250.
Be sure to fill out both the foster app and the adoption app if you are interested in Opal.
From her foster status: Sweet little Opal is settling into her foster home! She’s a little shy but foster mom has all the patience in the world. Opal’s surrendering owner had rescued her from craigslist and loved her dearly. Unfortunately, Opal has that little ‘tude with other dogs some Frenchies have and kept attacking the resident mastiff. Her owner tried everything and finally made the heartbreaking decision to call us.
Opal will get all the time she needs. Once she is ready for adoption, she will be posted. She is healthy at 6 1/2yo. The shaved spots on her are from her fights with the bigger dog. They are all healed well and her hair is starting to grow back. Welcome, Opal! We will be sure you are the only queen in the house.
Ok, well that is a awfully lot about me, I mean we haven’t even met yet! So fill out an application and lets get to know each other!

Finn, a neutered male 6yo, is a very affectionate dog, and loves to be close to people. He will nuzzle up as close as he can to you on the couch. He is always happy to see you when you get home, and is very loyal. He is playful and likes to chew on bones and other toys, although he can get a little possessive if another dog gets near him while he’s chewing on his bone. He currently lives in a foster home with a male black lab and a female pug, and he get’s along with both well. It took him some time to adjust to the lab, as Finn seems to be a little confrontational with bigger dogs, but he adores the pug. The perfect home for Finn would be a place where he can be the only dog, or have another smaller dog as a companion.
