ZORRO has been tossed from home to home and then kenneled, and now we are working with his personality to place him in his everlasting home! He is as sweet as a banana split with all the toppings, but he was becoming possessive of “his things”. This behavior is common with Chihuahuas and he is learning well on correcting it. We have established a routine to keep Zorro in his loving state. He does get along with other dogs but when he gets into his bed the other dog needs to stay away. He is 9 pounds, small but thick/muscular. Zorro is about 5-6 years old and way playful. He a will come with our trainer to show you how to adapt him into your home.If you are interested please contact Stacy@getalifepetrescue.com 954-629-2445
Based out of Broward County and serving the Tri-County area, Get-A-Life Pet Rescue saves pets who have been abandoned and provide them with a chance at the life they deserve. Our animals come to us through Animal Services and as owner surrenders and orphaned strays.
Our Volunteers and Board Members both play an active role in finding safe and happy homes for our rescued animals.
All pets in our care are given a full veterinary exam. They are vaccinated, spayed/neutered, microchipped, put on heartworm/flea & tick prevention medication, and given dental & grooming services as needed.
Donations are very critical to us, as they assist us in first, rescuing these pets, and second, in giving each pet full medical treatment, physical and behavioral rehabilitation, and the necessities that allow each rescue to thrive.
Because Get-A-Life Pet Rescue doesn’t have a facility in which to house pets as they are rescued, each pet is matched with an appropriate foster home in the Tri-County area. Through the individual foster homes, we are able to provide interested applicants with details on each pet's personality and provide a needs list to allow the pet a smooth transition "From Foster Care to Forever Family!"
Our volunteers promote responsible pet ownership and lifelong relationships with each adopter and his/her new pet. We educate all adopters and provide them with the tools necessary for a balanced and happy pet -- and a lifelong relationship with their new family member.
Our ultimate goal at Get-A-Life Pet Rescue is to increase compassion through education, resulting in the humane treatment of animals, and the reduction of the tragic overpopulation and pet abuse problems of today. We need your help to do this very important work, so thank you.
We are very grateful for your support, and we are very happy that you've chosen a Rescued Pet Adoption as the only New Pet Option!

**URGENT! FOSTER HOMES NEEDED!**
Thank you so much for inquiring about fostering!
Foster homes are desperately needed so we can continue rescuing more homeless dogs. Fostering provides a stable, loving environment for the new rescue to rehabilitate mentally and physically. Get-A-Life Pet Rescue provides all medical care, food, flea/tick & heartworm prevention medication for the pet, and the foster home provides the nurturing so desperately needed by the pet.
We match the foster dog with your family, so please be as specific as possible when completing your application regarding your pets' personalities and your work schedule. As a foster parent, we may need you to attend or to drop off your foster at some adoption events and to transport the pet to the veterinarian for medical needs.
Please note that some of our rescues have already had several homes prior to coming to us, and they may have some trouble adjusting.
Fostering is very rewarding, but there are several things to consider before you commit to fostering:
He/she may bark or cry in the middle of the night.
The dog may vomit or have diarrhea.
He/she may be shy, unapproachable, or aggressive (at least at first).
Some dogs have behavioral challenges, weight issues, and need ongoing medical care. Please be specific as to what needs you are able to accommodate.
Your foster pet may also want to be with you continuously and drown you with love!
Your foster commitment can take weeks to months until the dog is placed in its permanent home.
The foster parent plays a key role in placing the dog in a forever home, by keeping Get-A-Life Pet Rescue informed of the dog's personality and growth (keep sending us updated photos!), and any problems or concerns that you may encounter with your pet.
This foster process is very rewarding to both foster family and rescued dog! Just think of the lives you save and change! Maybe you will see your foster pet and his/her adopted family at the next Get-A-LifePet Rescue event!
