Almost Heaven's Adoptable & Resident Dogs

AHGRRS has been saving lives since 2002 and plans to continue accepting as many orphan dogs - as space and finances allow. Your donations will help keep our doors open to those who need us most. We have Adoptable Dogs (click HERE) in need of homes and permanent residents who will never know the joy of living in a family environment because they are so damaged, old, or sick that they are best suited to living out their lives with us - here at the Sanctuary. Please consider giving a homeless dog a home.

You can obtain Adoption Information and an Application by clicking HERE. Completed applications may be emailed to: ahgrr@frontiernet.net.

Please, we request that you don't call us until you have an approved application on file, as it is a volunteer owned phone. Calls will be answered when possible. For the fastest response, please email us.

If you cannot adopt at this time, but would like to help please consider the following:

    • Food donations are always greatly appreciated. We feed our rescues Iams Minichunks.
    • Donating needed item(s) on our Wish List
    • Sponsoring one of our residents. No donation is too small - All are always deeply appreciated. Use the PayPal button, Donation button, or mail to AHGGRS at P.O. Box 648, Capon Bridge, WV 26711.

Almost Heaven GRR&S - Chewy Gives Back

Daisy

Daisy - Female, German Shepherd Dog Mix

2 - 3 year old Daisy was surrendered to a shelter by her owners when they felt she needed medical care that they could not afford. She had never seen a veterinarian until coming to rescue. Daisy will be seeing our doctors soon, and will be available for adoption very soon thereafter. Daisy's owners told the shelter she appeared to have had some sort of "seizure", but neither the shelter, nor AHGRR has seen any to date. However, this will be thoroughly investigated by our doctors. Daisy is very sweet, and very "puppy". She does fine with the other dogs as long as she is not totally mugged by them when meeting them for the first time. She LOVES people. She does need some training, though she appears to know the command "sit".

Daisy has decided to accept applications now so when she is ready to leave (around the 2nd week of February), her new person will already be chosen. If you would like to offer Daisy a forever home, please submit an application. Click -> HERE

Louie

Louie

Louie - Male, Border Collie Mix

2- 3 year old Louie came to us with a history of being used as a "bait dog" for dog fighters. That may or may not be true as Louie does seem to have some neurological issues which could have been caused by injury (head bobbing, when drinking, and some peripheral vision issues). We have had Louie thoroughly checked out by our veterinarian, and he has assured us that although Louie does seem to have some strange issues, none of them appear to be affecting his current health in any way nor does he expect them to affect him in the future.

Louie really doesn't care for the company of other dogs - he would much rather be an "only furchild". He is very well behaved on leash and can be affectionate with his humans once he gets to know them, but can be a bite risk to those he does not know or trust. Louie needs someone with a LOT of patience and knowledge of dog behaviors to adopt him and show him just how good a dog's life can be, therefore, Louie would do best in a home with an experienced dog owner/trainer, and absolutely no children. Louie is a work in process - and his new family should regard him as a piece of art that when finally complete will dazzle all who meet him.

If you would like to offer Louie a furever home, please submit an application. Click -> HERE

Queenie

* * * Special Needs * * *

Queenie - Female, Golden Retriever Mix

5 - 6 year old Queenie came to us after she was found lying next to the road, emaciated at 27 pounds. We will probably never know the real story of how Queenie found herself in such dire circumstances and physical condition but, it has left emotional scars that may never completely heal. Queenie is a very dominant girl - she can be stubborn and single minded. She gets along best with neutered male dogs and she seems to like cats - actually, she just ignores them.

Queenie needs a home with an experienced adopter. Someone who can give her the space and guidance to become accustomed to her new home and people. Once Queenie knows and trusts people, she is a very loving, sweet girl, but it will not be "love at first sight" for her. We feel she would do best in a quiet adult home with a fenced yard - although Queenie does LOVE to go for walks on leash. She is crate trained, housebroken, spayed, vaccinated, and heartworm negative and on preventative.

We would love to see Queenie find her furever family and home where she will continue to blossom and receive the love and patience she needs and deserves. If you think you might be the right home for Queenie, please submit an application. Click -> HERE

Benji before
Benji upon arrival at shelter

Benji- Male, Norfolk Terrier Mix

Poor little 8 year old Benji was in such terrible condition when was dumped at a shelter. He was so matted they had shelter had trouble telling one end from the other. Benji has been a challenge for most of his life with us, although, he appears to have mellowed in the last year. For a long time, Benji thought it was great fun to bite the foot of anyone new who met him. Luckily - everyone wears shoes around the dogs, so there were no injuries. Lately, he seems less interested in feet (thank heavens) and is more interested in just going outside to potty.

Benji gets along with most other dogs and will actually play with some of them. He can be a challenge when it comes to grooming and veterinary care when he decides he has had "enough." We are still hoping a special person will show up to offer our Benji a furever home. If you think that special person is you, please submit an application. Click -> HERE

For now, he will remain with Almost Heaven as a permanet resident. Sponsors and donations towards his care are always greatly appreciated. Donations can be made via PayPal using the Donate button below or by mail: AHGGRS at P.O. Box 648, Capon Bridge, WV 26711

took Benji to her shop and gave him a haircut - take a look at our boy now!

Teddy Bear

Teddy Bear - Male, Collie/Golden Retriever/Great Pyrenees Mix

9 - 10 year old Panda and Teddy came to us after their owner passed away. They were very unsocial, and it took us a long time to gain their trust. Part of their behavior is genetic and part of it was from living an isolated life on a farm. Even now - years later - they are not warm fuzzy dogs, though they do like attention, and LOVE being inside snuggled on their dog beds. We would love to see these two Seniors adopted together, they are lifelong friends (littermates), and are very bonded and dependent on each other (especially Panda).

Teddy and Panda are available for adoption to a special home with understanding, patient, special people. If you are interested in offering them a furever home, please submit an application. Click -> HERE

Sponsors and donations towards their care are always greatly appreciated. Donations can be made via PayPal using the Donate button below or by mail: AHGGRS at P.O. Box 648, Capon Bridge, WV 26711

Jake and Jasper

Jake

Lawn mower - Jake (his brother Jasper recently passed away) - were abandoned at their prior home when their owner was evicted from the property.

Wonderful for keeping the fields "mowed" where lawn mowers cannot go.
