Meet Mallie

You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Mallie's world has recently been turned upside down as she lost both of her owners 3 months apart. She is now staying with family temporarily and desperately wants a home to settle down in. She had only known one home until now, so life has been confusing lately. She does fine with kids, BUT, cannot live with small dogs, and would need to meet any other dogs beforehand. She's gotten into scuffles with other dogs before, so she may prefer to be a solo dog. She recently had some encounters with cats but was a little too interested so a NO CAT home is a must. She has a clean Bill of health and is up to date on all vaccines.

CVRR is listing this dog as a *COURTESY* to the actual owner. This dog is not currently in the care of CVRR, so CVRR makes no representations or guarantees for the animals behavior, demeanor or health assessment. All information listed has been given by the current dogs owner, and should be verified by any interested potential adopter.Interested in this animal?

The adoption fee helps cover a portion of the care provided for our animals, including spay/neuter, microchip, heartworm testing for dogs, FeLV/FIV combo testing for cats, deworming, age-appropriate vaccines (including rabies vaccine), and any medical care received while in our care. All cats and dogs are on flea/tick and parasite prevention for the duration of foster care.

Notes about puppies: Adopters can expect a new puppy to have accidents, chew things they shouldn't, and have other normal, energetic puppy issues until they are trained, including jumping, mouthing, and general youthful naughtiness. If you experience puppy issues, please feel free to contact us; we're happy to offer guidance. Also, if a puppy is a mixed breed, we cannot guarantee an adult weight. If your residence has weight restrictions or if you're looking for a specific adult weight, we don't recommend applying for a mixed-breed puppy.

We also offer rehoming services for pets currently owned by individuals. In these cases, we list the animal as a courtesy to the owner, and the animal is not currently in the care of CVRR, such that we can make no representation or guarantee of the animal's behavior, demeanor, or health assessment. All information listed for a courtesy-posted animal is provided by the current owner and should be verified by any potential adopter.

CVRR is a nonprofit organization. We have no paid staff, and all applications are reviewed and processed by our volunteers. Please be patient and understand that it may take 7-14 days to process your application, check your references, and gather follow-up info. You can expedite the process by providing accurate phone numbers and email addresses for your vet and landlord references, and by answering each question fully. Once your application is approved, we will schedule a meet-and-greet to see if the animal picks you, too. If it seems the adoption will be a good match for all, we will collect the adoption fee and complete the adoption contract.

CVRR is a NO KILL rescue organization, and we have a LIFETIME COMMITMENT to all of our animals. If for any reason the adoption does not work out, the animal must be returned to CVRR. We will reevaluate the animal and choose a new home based on the best fit for it.
