Meet Rocketeer

Rocketeer is blasting off in search of a new home to call his own. He lived for 3 years with an elderly couple who have decided he needs more than they can provide.

With a guesstimated birthday in May 2019, Rocketeer weighs about 10 lb.

Rocketeer is very affectionate. He does well with the other dogs in his foster home after time to acclimate. He likes to play chase-the-cat with one that will run, but the other cat doesn't tolerate any foolishness so Rocketeer leaves her alone.

Rocketeer is leash savvy and will crate. He will whine in his crate if his foster mom is nearby, but settles down when she has to leave. He's house-trained when kept on a regular schedule..

Roceteer isn't as fond of riding in cars and will struggle initially because he doesn't want to be put in. Once inside, though, he calms down. He wants to go wherever his foster mom goes so has learned to tolerate traveling.

**********

April 2020: We are not holding public adoption events until further notice. Qualified families are being invited to appointments to meet specific dogs. There are currently no opportunities to view multiple dogs and adoption events aren't being held at Tractor Supply in Lenoir.

Whether dogs / puppies come in as strays or owner surrenders, we usually have to make our best guess as to birthdate and breed.

If adopted into a home with other animals, particularly cats, your new pet should be crated or secured when you're not available to supervise to insure a harmonious relationship.

A vet reference is required to confirm responsible pet ownership. Requirement is a minimum three year vet history documenting current / previous pets are spayed / neutered, kept up to date on core vaccinations, and on heartworm prevention. We suggest first time pet owners without a vet history look for an adult dog for companionship and to gain experience. Other rescues or your local government-run animal control agency may have different adoption requirements.

Adoption fee covers two vaccinations plus spay / neuter if using our local low-cost spay/neuter clinic (overnight stay required) and surgery occurs as agreed upon in the adoption contract. Convenience fee equal to refundable spay/neuter deposit may be required if, using our veterinarian or same-day surgery, service is scheduled through our organization. Additional fees for 3rd puppy vaccination, refundable spay/neuter deposit, etc. may apply.

We are an all-volunteer, foster-based rescue. We receive no funding from agencies. Available animals can be seen most Saturdays at Tractor Supply in Lenoir from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. We recommend interested parties contact us to pre-qualify for adoption so their new furry family can go home once paperwork is complete. Fees are required in cash. For more information on our organization, our website is www.petpartnersrescue.org.
